FTVLive FIRST told you that CNN boss Jeff Zucker is moving Weekend Anchor Don Lemon to Monday through Friday at 11PM. 

Lemon's show will be produced  by Piers Morgan's team, led by EP Jonathan Wald, with a few staffers added. The 11PM time slot at CNN is currently running reruns of Erin Burnett's OutFront.

Word is that Lemon will also fill in for Burrnett on her show when she goes on maternity leave. 

CNN has tried other shows at 11PM that have failed and have not lasted very long. Word is that Zucker has high hopes for Lemon and according to one source the show "will be given ample time to try and draw and audience".

The show is expected to hit the air in December.
