CNN is experiencing its worst ratings in two decades, and is bouncing around ideas that include adding a new panel-hosted talk show (essentially “an 11 p.m. version of ‘The View'”), and hiring non-news personalities (a la new hire Anthony Bourdain). The network also wants to add around five new reality shows that would air on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Deadline reports that a CNN spokesperson confirmed that the news channel is looking into creating “non-fiction original series for the weekend.”
