Changes coming to MSNBC lineup

There's more change afoot at ratings-challenged MSNBC.

With the Scott Peterson and Michael Jackson legal news heating up, the nightly MSNBC program "The Abrams Report" will move to 3 p.m. from its current 6 p.m. slot, so that anchor Dan Abrams, who is also NBC News' chief legal correspondent, can consolidate his hours.

Abrams will replace "Buchanan & Press," which has been struggling in the ratings. Pat Buchanan and Bill Press will remain MSNBC contributors.

As for the prime 6 p.m. slot, MSNBC said it will launch something new -- no details -- in 2004.
