CNN confirmed that it will move one of its daytime news shows to prime time, TVNewser reports.
"Rick’s List," hosted by Rick Sanchez, will be making the move to CNN’s 8 p.m. slot, according to the story.
On Monday’s broadcast, Sanchez said in passing, "Pretty soon we’re going to have two things going on. A: We’re going to be doing this newscast at 8 at night. We’re excited about that. And my book is going to be coming out."
It’s presumed that "Rick’s List" will be a space holder until September, when the Kathleen Parker-Eliot Spitzer political show is ready to assume the 8 p.m. ET slot. CNN confirmed that Sanchez will start the prime-time incarnation of his show on Thursday, July 22, and will continue hosting his afternoon program from 3-5.
