The last several months have been pretty rough for CNN’s Don Lemon.
First, he was demoted from his primetime show that no one watched, to a morning show that no one watches.
Then it was reported that the ratings for CNN This Morning got even worse after he joined the show.
He must feel like he is under tremendous pressure. And that might explain why he allegedly exploded at one of his co-hosts recently for interrupting him.

The New York Post reported:
Don Lemon ‘screamed’ at ‘CNN This Morning’ co-host, left crew ‘rattled’: sources
Tensions on the set of “CNN This Morning” have recently boiled over, with Don Lemon allegedly “screaming” at co-host Kaitlan Collins off-camera during an ugly December incident that has left the cast and crew rattled ever since, The Post has learned.
According to two sources with knowledge of the situation, the 56-year-old Lemon approached 30-year-old Collins following the show’s Thursday Dec. 8 broadcast — and unloaded on her in front of staffers as he accused her of “interrupting” him on air.
“Don screamed at Kaitlan, who was visibly upset and ran out of the studio,” one source with knowledge of the skrimish said.
News of the explosive incident made its way up to CNN CEO Chris Licht, who is said to have been appalled by Lemon’s behavior, according to a source. A second source said a producer talked to Lemon at the behest of Licht and told the anchor to take the next day off to “cool off.”
The following night, the three co-hosts were slated to get drinks and arrive together at a White House Christmas party for the press, a source said. But the pre-party gathering never happened after the emotional day and they trickled in to the bash separately, an insider with knowledge said.
