CNN will give “The Don Lemon Show” a trial Mondays in the 10 p.m. timeslot
Don Lemon will get a new weekly half-hour show at 10 p.m. ET on CNN, starting March 10. “The Don Lemon Show” will take over the former time slot of “AC360 Later” and air tentatively for about five weeks.
Lemon's show will be the lead-in for “Making The Case” — CNN's new legal show with Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos, which will air at 10:30 p.m. ET. “AC360” which normally gets the 10 spot will now re-air at 11pm ET.
Lemon, whose iconoclastic commentary has been praised by Fox News's The Five, previously hosted the late night news show “The 11th Hour” at 11 p.m. late last fall.
CNN's President Jeff Zucker said the network will be experimenting with a bunch of different programs throughout the coming weeks.
Lemon joins other 10 p.m. shows including Thursday's docuseries, “Chicagoland.”
