"There is a high failure rate," with daytime talk shows, he says. "It may very well fail. I am a big believer in playing into the things that you fear the most. As an adult, I try not to worry. From when I was 10, I had a furrowed brow. And my dad used to say, 'Enjoy, enjoy.' Obviously, I want this to work, and it can be a great life-enhancing thing for viewers. And if it fails, I'll still have my job at CNN, unless I really fail and they get rid of me, too." Follow the link for the entire read.

This is the first interview that posed the question of failure.
At least AC has given this thought and knows he can always go back to CNN.
That's probably why he kept that option open because of the high rate of talkshow failures.
