CNN has set November 29 as the premiere date King Charlesprimetime limited series hosted by Gayle King and Charles Barkley.
The show will air on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET, although the second week will be an hour earlier due to the GOP debate on December 6.
In the promotion, King called the show “our unfiltered take on the biggest stories of the time.”
The series’ genesis was during the tenure of Chris Licht, the former head of CNN, who was ousted in June. Licht sought to beef up the network’s prime-time lineup with stars, even if that meant prime-time shows airing once a week. MSNBC has already done this, and “The Rachel Maddow Show” now only appears on Mondays, after Maddow signed a new contract that halted her regular appearances.
King will continue to serve as co-host CBS Morningsas well as her SiriusXM show, while Barkley continues to work as an analyst Inside the NBA on TNT.
