New CNN Headline News Program To Poke Fun At Clips In Film Archive

(CBS/AP) CNN Headline News isn't the first place you'd look for comedy, but the network says it will try to have fun with some of the clips in its news archives.

"Not Just Another Cable News Show" will premiere April 5, the network said Monday.

"It's an entertaining way to recall some of the more memorable moments captured on video," said Ken Jautz, executive vice president at CNN Worldwide.

The 30-minute show will be on Saturdays at 7 p.m. EDT, then repeated twice later in the evening. It will be followed each time by "News to Me," a series that shows hot Web videos.

The sober CNN has avoided such light material in the past.

A few years ago, CNN International aired reruns of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" for overseas viewers.
