CNN announces new prime time lineup

By Brian Stelter, CNN Senior Media Correspondent

Doubling down on its investment in original series, CNN will begin to devote the 9 p.m. hour of prime time to new taped shows starring Mike Rowe, Anthony Bourdain and others, the channel announced on Thursday.

The new strategy represents a shift away from the talk show format that CNN has featured at 9 p.m. for thirty years, first with "Larry King Live," then with "Piers Morgan Tonight." Morgan's program ended on March 29.

"We believe that genre is no longer viable" at that hour, the CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker said, citing "too many outlets" and "not enough unique guests."

Following the taped series at 9 p.m., a new addition called "CNN Tonight" at 10 p.m. will feature rotating hosts. It was described as "a live hour of the day's biggest stories."

    Miss Piers Morgan! Not happy withh CNN's evening changes. Lost me as a viewer. Watch Anderson Cooper and then move on to other channels. Used to watch the early morning news too but rarely do now. Who's making all these changes? You are losing viewers!
