CNN Moving Up 'Crossfire,' 'AC360 Later' Premieres In Light Of Syria


CNN is moving up the premieres of "Crossfire" and "AC360 Later" to Monday, September 9.

The new lineup was originally scheduled to start September 16. However, the network has decided to move the debut earlier in time to discuss the Congressional vote on Syria.

"In light of rapidly changing events impacting the American response to the Syrian humanitarian crisis, launches for both new shows have been moved forward to premiere on Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, on CNN/U.S," CNN said in a statement on Monday.

The new "Crossfire" will air at 6:30 p.m., while Anderson Cooper will host a panel discussion on "AC360 Later" at 10 p.m. CNN announced in June that it was reviving "Crossfire," the classic debate show, with Newt Gingrich, Stephanie Cutter, S.E. Cupp and Van Jones as hosts.
