CNN Headline News will rearrange the repeats on its new prime-time weekday lineup starting Monday, April 25, in an attempt to maximize the big bounce it got when the schedule launched Feb. 21. The first telecasts of “Showbiz Tonight,” “Nancy Grace” and “Prime News Tonight” will continue to air at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. ET, respectively.

Fast-rising “Nancy Grace” will now repeat at 10 p.m., which doubles its chances of attracting prime-time viewers on the East Coast and positions it as a prime-time booster on the West Coast. “Showbiz Tonight” will repeat at 11 p.m., putting the entertainment program into the West Coast’s 8 p.m. slot. An updated version of “Prime News Tonight” will be added at midnight.
