CNN is experimenting with a new weekly night show hosted by Don Lemon.

The Wrap reported Wednesday that "The Don Lemon Show" will air "tentatively" at 10 PM on Monday nights for approximately five weeks. It's the latest experiment by CNN as chief Jeff Zucker attempts to shakeup the lineup and rebuild the network.

Lemon, who currently anchors CNN's "Newsroom" during weekend primetime, will replace Anderson Cooper's "AC 360 Later," which was axed in early February. Zucker has been experimenting with several new programs during the 10 PM hour such as a panel show including Donny Deutsch and re-airing host Jake Tapper's "The Lead"-- both of which did not last.

To follow Lemon's show, the network confirmed to The Huffington Post Wednesday that they would be testing out a new legal show, "Making the Case," at 10:30 PM, co-hosted by celebrity defense lawyer Mark Geragos and former assistant U.S. attorney Sunny Hostin.
