'Cochran,' 'Trial' get new timeslots
NEW YORK — Court TV made its first scheduling changes under new CEO Henry Schleiff, who joined the cabler on Sept. 15.
Beginning Sept. 28, “Cochran & Company,” will switch to a live format and will move from its 10 p.m. weekday slot to 8 p.m., said Sheilagh D’Arcy McGee, Court TV’s VP of programming. “Cochran & Company” is an hour-long talkshow for newsmakers hosted by Johnnie Cochran.
In addition, one-hour documentary series “Trial Story” will move to 10 p.m. from its former 8 p.m. timeslot. The 9 p.m. show “Prime Time Justice” will keep its timeslot. “Prime Time Justice,” anchored by Rikki Klieman and Gregg Jarrett, reviews the day’s top legal news and trials in a magazine format. The show is broadcast live.
McGee said that Court TV is working on a new look for the channel as well as improvements to its live daytime trial coverage.
