NEW YORK — CNN is unveiling the title and premiere date of its new prime-time talk show pairing former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and conservative columnist Kathleen Parker.

The name is, simply, "Parker Spitzer." CNN said Tuesday the show will premiere Oct. 4, airing weeknights at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

The second-billed Spitzer will begin the show perhaps best known for having resigned as governor in disgrace two years ago following a prostitution scandal. Parker has been a Southern-based newspaper columnist for much of her life and won a Pulitzer Prize for commentary.

"Parker Spitzer" will face tough competition on rival cable news networks: Bill O'Reilly on Fox News Channel and Keith Olbermann at MSNBC.

The program was originally announced in June.
