NEW YORK (AP) - With a congressional vote on Syria looming, CNN can't wait to get "Crossfire" started again.

The network says the daily debate program will begin Monday, Sept. 9. CNN had originally planned for the show to debut the following Monday, but it moved up the premiere because of President Barack Obama's request that Congress vote on a military response against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons.

Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones are the new combatants on "Crossfire." The 30-minute show will air weekdays at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The show aired for many years on CNN before being stopped in 2005 after it was criticized by "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart. But new CNN boss Jeff Zucker has advocated bringing it back.
