Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines with in-depth reporting and investigations. Through nightly "Keeping Them Honest" reports, Anderson keeps his commitment to holding those in power accountable. And, of course, there's the RidicuList, a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the day's news that may leave viewers (and Anderson) laughing. Joining him are guests that frequently include political and legal analysts.
With veteran Washington correspondent John King in the anchor chair, "Inside Politics" focuses on the top political stories of the day with a rotating round table of top sourced reporters from CNN and from other media outlets. The half-hour program gives viewers an inside look at the stories driving Washington, directly from reporters on the ground. Prior to its revival in 2014, "Inside Politics" was first headed by Judy Woodruff, and it aired for more than 20 years on CNN before its cancellation in 2005.
Hosted by CNN's chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper, "State of the Union" features one-on-one interviews with top newsmakers on politics and policy.

Zakaria is also a syndicated columnist for The Washington Post, a contributing editor for The Atlantic magazine, and hosts in-depth, prime-time specials for CNN Worldwide. "Fareed Zakaria GPS" was launched in 2008 and each week's program airs worldwide on CNN, from New York or other locations around the world. The program is characterized by smart debate and discussion on world events and public affairs, designed to help viewers understand the world around them and the newest thinking on the globe's biggest challenges.
"Reliable Sources" with Brian Stelter examines the media world -- telling the story behind the story -- how news and pop culture get made. Discussions revolve around media fairness and objectivity, with panels consisting of journalists from top television, digital and print news organizations. Regularly featured special one-on-one interviews with major media figures are also part of the Sunday morning show.
Radio host, newspaper columnist and author Michael Smerconish tackles the American political and news stories of the week, offering only one kind of talking point: his own. On his eponymous program, Smerconish takes an independent point of view on political topics -- his infamous commentaries cross party lines and he calls the shots as he sees them. The hourlong program also incorporates reaction from viewers via Twitter and Facebook, to which Smerconish responds in real time, calling on his quick wit, political experience and legal chops.
You ask, CNN answers. In hourlong, in-depth explorations CNN hosts examine extraordinary individuals, unexpected events and controversial subjects through interviews, stories, images and videos.
CNN is by and large still a cable news outlet, but a movement under the leadership of network president Jeff Zucker to provide more alternative, entertainment-based programming is clearly afoot, and "Death Row Stories" is a prime example. The documentary -- the result of a collaboration with Academy Award-winning directors Robert Redford ("Ordinary People") and Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side") -- revisits compelling capital murder cases in the U.S., detailing the twists and turns involved in each as a thought-provoking exercise on the death penalty and the American justice system. Redford's Sundance Productions also partnered with CNN for the documentary series "Chicagoland."
Tom Hanks executive produces this series "The Nineties" with Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog. "The Nineties" delves deeply into the decade that brought about the rise of the internet -- it may have been dial-up but it still brought great joy and frustration -- and many other technological advancements such as DVDs --the VHS became a dying breed once DVDs came about -- and stepping stones in culture, politics, fashion, and music. The decade also saw the rise of six famous friends living in Manhattan and a young man in brightly colored cardigans, suspenders, and glasses.
Award-winning journalist and author Lisa Ling reports on unconventional lifestyles in the U.S. The former co-host of "The View" introduces viewers to subcultures and communities that are extraordinary and sometimes dangerous, and her interpersonal skills prompt interviewees to discuss matters they don't share with close friends or even family. "I have always believed that the more we know about each other, the more evolved we become," Ling says about the intent of the hourlong documentaries.
A look at 1968, a year marked by the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy, a contentious presidential election, escalating anti-Vietnam War sentiment and more.
Anthony Bourdain had no reservations about a move to CNN. Shortly after concluding an eight-season stint at the helm of his popular Travel Channel series, the equally popular Emmy-winning host came to the news network searching for "Parts Unknown." In the hourlong weekend series -- similar in premise to Travel's "No Reservations" -- Bourdain explores the world to, he says, "eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice ... they open up to you in ways that somebody visiting who is driven by a story may not get." Enticed by the opportunity to experience cultures rarely visited by American TV, such as in the Congo, Libya and Myanmar, the chef and best-selling author also takes viewers to Colombia, Peru, Morocco and, closer to home, Koreatown in Los Angeles.
From local news and sports reporter to correspondent on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Nightline," Bill Weir has taken a varied path in his journalism career. Another turn came when he joined CNN in 2013 to develop original programming, giving birth to "The Wonder List." In hourlong episodes, Weir travels with cinematographer Philip Bloom to five continents to tell stories of extraordinary people, places, cultures and creatures, which are at a crossroads. In a world of rapid change, how is the intrusion of modernization, climate change and tourism affecting the Galapagos, the Greek island Ikaria, the French Alps, the Dead Sea, the Florida Everglades, India, Venice, and Vanuatu, an island chain in the South Pacific? In 2050, will there still be tigers in the wild? Will the Taj Mahal still be standing? Will there still be Alps to climb and ski? "We set out to create time capsules of places we all agree are precious," Weir says.
Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers hosts this CNN original series, an eight-part look at complex true stories of America's covert operations. The newly declassified missions are recounted firsthand by agents from all 16 U.S. intelligence bureaus, providing viewers with unprecedented access to a secret world of espionage. The missions span time periods from Cold War-era Moscow to modern-day Iran, from the streets of 1980s Cuba to Beijing of today. Among the stories covered are the military's hunts for Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
The decade that gave us Facebook, the iPhone and other cultural and political milestones.
CNN Original Series examines the historic influence of comedy in an eight-part documentary. Archival footage and contemporary interviews with comedy legends, scholars and current stars combine to explore what makes people laugh and how comedy has affected history's social and political landscape. Judd Apatow, Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho, Jimmy Kimmel, Kathy Griffin, George Lopez, Keegan-Michael Key, Conan O'Brien, Patton Oswalt and Dick Cavett are among those interviewed.

Comic and political provocateur W. Kamau Bell hosts this CNN original documentary series in which he travels to the far corners of America to explore race-based subcultures. Using humor to soften his experiences, Bell willingly subjects himself to awkward situations -- like attending a cross-burning, hate-mongering Ku Klux Klan session -- to demonstrate "the many diverse and colorful definitions of America," CNN says. Bell also visits a gated retirement community, experiences inner-city policing, spends time with spring break revelers, speaks to prison inmates, and travels to the Last Frontier.
Emmy Award-winning executive producers Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog bring "The Movies" to CNN in new six-part series that explores American cinema through the decades and the cultural, societal and political shifts that framed its evolution.

Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th president of the U.S. and first to resign, led a political career as varied, dynamic and disruptive as any in history. His rise, fall, comeback and eventual destruction during some of America's most tumultuous decades are examined in "Tricky Dick." The four-part series relies solely on archival footage, some seen for the first time here, to tell a story of power, politics and scandal. It begins with his early political life in California, moves to his calculated crusade for the presidency that leads into the tumult of the Vietnam War era, and concludes with Nixon's re-election and ensnarement in Watergate.
The drama of how a high-stakes presidential election can turn on a single issue.
