Feb. 14, 2013, will go down in history as the first day Jeff Zucker's dynamic new CNN really covered a breaking news story, like a sewage-soaked Carnival cruise blanket. Let's take a look at how much broadcast time CNN dedicated to what will be remembered by many as Jeff Zucker's Gulf War.

The "Situation Room," CNN's premiere political show, dives in at 4 p.m.

4 p.m. – 7 p.m. = 3 hours. 3 hours = 180 mins. That's 49% of broadcast minutes dedicated to Poop Ship coverage.

Donny Duetsch, in for Piers Morgan, gets his chance to impress Zucker with his ability to handle such a massive story.
