CNN sources tell FTVLive that things are going south at CNN's New Day fast. 

The morning show that CNN boss Jeff Zucker put so much time, effort and money into is dragging in the ratings and behind the scenes it is turning into a train wreck. 

Sources tell FTVLive that New Day Anchor Chris Cuomo told Zucker that he thinks he needs a new co-anchor.

Cuomo told Zucker that Kate Bolduan is not a good fit for him and he wants someone new. 

It's never a good thing when one anchor is going to the boss to complain about the other anchor. 

But, it doesn't stop there.

Sources tell FTVLive that New Day News Reader Michaela Pereira has contacted friends at her old station KTLA and said she would like to come back to LA.

Word is that Pereira is not happy with life or work on the East Coast and would love to go back to her gig in local TV. 

Of course, she's locked in a contract and it's doubtful that Zucker is going to accommodate her wishes.

Although Zucker had high hopes for New Day and has spent million promoting the show, it continues to flop in the ratings.  

The entire project got off to a bad start, when Zucker was set on having Erin Burnett host the show with Cuomo. Burnett balked and Zucker went with Bolduan. 

Now, if Cuomo gets his way, he might have another new co-anchor soon. 

Stay tuned....
