Headline News Shuffles Primetime


CNN Headline News is updating its “Headline Prime” schedule next Monday to better position repeats of its entertainment, legal and news offerings for primetime and West Coast showings, officials said Monday.

The network debuted its new primetime lineup Feb. 21, with Showbiz Tonight at 7 p.m. with a repeat at 10 p.m.; Nancy Grace at 8 p.m. with a repeat at 11 p.m.; and Prime News Tonight at 9 p.m.

Nancy Grace will now repeat at 10 p.m., offering a second viewing within primetime hours. Showbiz Tonight will repeat at 11 p.m. so that the show will air on the West Coast at 8 p.m. -- a better viewing opportunity. And the network will add an updated version of Prime News Tonight at midnight.
