'HUNTER' BAGS 'LATE NITE' SLOT

"Hunter," the 3-year-old cop series just picked up for a fourth prime-time season by NBC, also will be part of the "CBS Late Nite" lineup come fall.

CBS on Tuesday added "Hunter" reruns to the late-night program wheel, along with a new comedy-drama titled "Diamonds." The as-yet uncast "Diamonds," a Stephen J. Cannell Production, is about former TV private eyes who become real private eyes after their series is canceled.

These two shows will join "Night Heat" and "Adderly" in the 11:30 p.m. rotation schedule. "Hunter's" first-run time slot will be 10 p.m. Saturdays on NBC.

The network also said that "In Person From the Palace," a new hourlong pop/rock music series, will be seen Fridays at 11:30 p.m. starting June 12, replacing "Keep On Cruisin'." Bobby Colomby, one of the founders of Blood, Sweat and Tears, will host the new Dick Clark Production.
