Posted: Updated:

MSNBC isn't the only network shaking up dayside.

CNN will be changing things up on January 18th, when Rick Sanchez will get a second hour, anchoring a new show called "Rick's List" from 3-5PM. He currently anchors the 3PM hour but the hour is not branded as his show.

"The Situation Room" will be cut back an hour, and will air from 5-7PM.

Politico's Michael Calderone reports that "CNN president Jon Klein, on the morning editorial call, told staffers that both Wolf Blitzer and Sanchez are pleased with the decision."

Sanchez Tweeted:

Hey guys, new CNN show beginning Jan 18th, weekdays 3-5pm ET. "Rick's List"- Who will make the list?

MSNBC recently announced plans to move Dylan Ratigan to the 4PM hour and launch a new 9AM show, "The Daily Rundown," anchored by Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie. David Shuster and Tamron Hall will continue to anchor from 3-4PM.
