‘AC360 Later’ Removed from CNN Schedule

anderson_cooperCNN’s “AC360 Later” and Jay Leno have something in common: they’ve both signed off for the last time. Staffers were informed this morning the 10pm news chat show will not be coming back. CNN tells TVNewser no layoffs are expected.

The show began as a late night experiment last year, featuring a more laid back discussion led by Anderson Cooper. It never aired as regularly as the rest of CNN’s primetime lineup and often disappeared from the schedule for weeks at a time with documentaries and “AC360″ 8pm re-runs in its place.

CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker is making good on his promise to shakeup CNN’s primetime in 2014. Cooper isn’t going anywhere. He signed a contract extension with CNN in November.
