So, what exactly happened to Herman Cain's CainTV?

There is no more CainTV, as we reported Tuesday. But after we ran that post, Dan Calabrese, editor in chief of the former CainTV, got in touch with us to clear some things up:

1. Calabrese said CainTV, the web TV network set up by former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in July last year, has simply been re-branded as "Best of Cain."

2. The site's domain is still CainTV.com and typing in "HermanCain.com" will redirect you there (oddly, "BestofCain.com" does not). But it's no longer a place for TV show-like productions. It is a place for "timely commentary by a very small, tight group of writers," Calabrese said.

3. He said that though CainTV underwent a visual redesign this week, the content has been the same since around August of last year. "It became clear very quickly that that [original] idea was flawed," Calabrese said. "And really we did not continue with that idea beyond August of last year." He said keeping the original web design with the different content, however, was "a problem because the old design wasn't reflecting the new idea." He said the visual revamp took longer than he would have liked.

At the time of our initial post, TheBlaze attempted to reach CainTV.com by using the phone number provided on the site (it didn't work) and the query form. Calabrese said he never received the form submission and that the number on the site was out of date. He said it has since been fixed.
