CNN Decides on Piers Morgan’s Replacement

by Greg Pollowitz

They’re going with a multiple-anchor format at 9 p.m. Via TV Newser:

Two weeks after Piers Morgan signed off from CNN’s primetime lineup, the network has announced plans for the 9pm ET timeslot. Beginning this summer, CNN will air original series — like Anthony Bourdain‘s “Parts Unknown” and Morgan Spurlock‘s “Inside Man,” as well as several new series that are in development — during the hour.

In addition to “Parts Unknown” and “Inside Man,” CNN has announced shows with Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs,” John Walsh of “America’s Most Wanted” and Lisa Ling. The shows will rotate with CNN’s in-house documentaries, like the ten-part “The Sixties” and a new multi-part documentary from the producers of “Chicagoland,” in the 9pm ET timeslot.
