HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW
With SHIRLEY LAU
Apparently, it wasn't the hair after all.
Local CNN business news presenter Andrew Stevens has changed the punchline of a trailer plugging his morning show Biz Asia.
Following lots of macho 'We ask the tough questions' lines and cuts to the well- coiffured Stevens (above) probing various interviewees, a voice asks: 'Why do you think people watch?' to which he replied: 'I think it's the hair.'
Execs have decided it wasn't.
'We update our promos all the time and I think people here just decided the joke had run its course, especially in this climate,' a CNN spokeswoman said.
So the line was changed to: 'Because it's absolutely fascinating.'
Which it isn't, because since the start of the war in Iraq, the show has been off the air.
