The Insider (formerly named omg! Insider) is an American syndicated television newsmagazine that is distributed by CBS Television Distribution. The program premiered in first-run syndication on September 13, 2004, as a spin-off of Entertainment Tonight, which originated the concept as a segment that took viewers "behind closed doors" and gave them "inside" information on stories and topics of interest from throughout the entertainment industry.
Since it became a separate program, it has shifted toward a tabloid direction, and has undergone several format changes in the years since its premiere; though since the start of the 2011–12 season, the program has shed many of the tabloid elements and become more of a straight rundown of entertainment news, providing coverage of events and celebrities, interviews and inside looks at upcoming film and television projects.
As of 2015, the program's weekday broadcasts are anchored by Louis Aguirre and Debbie Matenopoulos; its weekend editions are anchored by Michael Yo and Keltie Knight, who also serve as correspondents for the weekday editions. According to Nielsen, the program currently runs in second-to-last place in the ratings among the syndicated newsmagazines, behind Extra. Source
