The skinny: Once known as C-SPAN for lawyers, Court TV now boasts a primetime slate of reality shows that outshine its court coverage during the day. Turner Broadcasting took full ownership of the network in 2006 and plans to relaunch it with a new name and tagline at the beginning of 2008 to better reflect its primetime lineup. Later this year, courtroom coverage will shift to broadband at 3 p.m. as the net shifts to its lineup of legal analysts including “Nancy Grace: Closing Arguments” at 3 p.m. and “Catherine Crier Live” at 5 p.m. The net signed Star Jones and is developing a legal talkshow for her at 4 p.m. starting in late summer.
