Ben Lyons and Ben Mankiewicz's At the Movies stint is coming to an end after one year.

A.O. (Tony) Scott of the New York Times and Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune are taking over the cohosting duties.

"[Scott and Phillips] are regarded by millions of people as authorities in film criticism and will take the series back to its roots of one-on-one debate that was established when the show first began with Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel," Brian Frons, president of Disney-ABC daytime, said in a statement.

The veteran newspaper film critics will make their debut when the long-running show's new season premieres the weekend of Sept. 5.
