CNN Tonight is a newscast hosted by Don Lemon on CNN, which debuted on April 15, 2014 in the 9 p.m. timeslot as a replacement for Piers Morgan Live following its cancellation. In late May 2014, the show moved to its permanent home airing Monday through Thursday at 10 p.m.
The current iteration of the show features Lemon providing provocative commentary to the stories of the day joined by guests and commentators.
A program of the same name aired on CNN in the spring of 1985, as a replacement for Sandi Freeman until Larry King Live premiered. Another program of the same name debuted in 2001 with Bill Hemmer as anchor, but it was cancelled the same year. In 2010 another show with the name became an interim replacement for Lou Dobbs Tonight, following Lou Dobbs' resignation from the network on November 11, 2009.
This edition was hosted by John Roberts, which debuted on November 16, 2009, as an interim replacement for Lou Dobbs Tonight following Lou Dobbs' resignation from the network on November 11, 2009. The program featured reporters who filed reports for Lou Dobbs' program, including Dana Bash, Candy Crowley, and Kitty Pilgrim.
It was discontinued after January 15, 2010, due to a scheduling shift which occurred the following Monday, extending Rick Sanchez's hour during the CNN Newsroom block into a two hour program known as Rick's List, which pushed The Situation Room up an hour into Lou Dobbs' former timeslot. On March 22, 2010, the final hour of The Situation Room was replaced by John King, USA, the official replacement for Lou Dobbs Tonight.
The program was revived as a replacement for Piers Morgan Live and a new primetime schedule with more taped content.
