HLN is re-jiggering its lineup (again), reports TVNewser. To keep its programming live from 6am until 8pm, network execs have decided to move S.E. Cupp Unfiltered from 7pm, and place it right after Michaela ends at 5. Cupp’s show, although it has made headlines for many of its panel discussions, isn’t really a ratings hit at 7.
Nor is Ashleigh Banfield’s Primetime Justice, which will also be moving and expanding to two hours, airing from 6pm to 8pm. But since it isn’t in primetime anymore, it will be renamed Crime & Justice with Ashleigh Banfield.
The scheduling changes go into effect Monday, December 4.
HLN boss Jen Kautz said of the changes, “This new line-up creates a stronger flow into prime, which now hosts a robust library of highly-rated HLN and CNN Original programming, designed for us to win. I want to thank you for your hard-work and flexibility over the past couple of years as we continue to position HLN for greater success.”
