    Dr. Drew Pinsky has a new show.

    Addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky will have a new prime-time show weeknights on HLN starting next spring.

    The network, formerly CNN Headline News, made the announcement Monday. HLN wouldn't say where Pinsky will fit in its schedule; currently a rerun of Nancy Grace's 8 p.m. show airs each night at 10 p.m. Eastern.

    Pinsky hosts "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" on VH1. He also has separate shows on rehab for sex addiction and on sober living.

    His HLN show is expected to be more of a talk show, where he discusses news stories that fit into his area of expertise. Pinsky says he's looking forward to the chance to "really explain the choices that people make."
