We'll get to the point quickly: CNN's new prime-time talk show is gone after a week.

CNN described "(Get to) The Point" as a one-week experiment in the 10 p.m. EDT time slot. It featured Donny Deutsch and panelists chewing over the day's news. But the Nielsen Company said it averaged 268,000 viewers last week, or fewer than the 446,000 the network reached in March with a rerun of Anderson Cooper's newscast from two hours earlier.

It took less than a week for the show to be mocked by Comedy Central's Jon Stewart. CNN wasn't commenting Monday on reports that its executives are kicking around the idea of reviving the political debate show "Crossfire."

That show left the air in 2005 — after being criticized by Stewart.
