The MGM syndicated video clip strip’s Monday-Friday clearance is now 65%, which will increase to 85% this fall with the Fox deal.
Fox Television Stations has picked up syndicated strip Right This Minute and its weekend edition for this fall in 10 markets, including in nine duopoly markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Dallas, Houston and Charlotte, N.C. It will also air on Fox O&O WFXT Boston.
It will air on Fox stations and MyNetworkTV stations, although schedules are still being worked out.
The show is currently cleared in 85% of TV households, but only when including its weekend edition. Its clearance Monday-Friday is 65%, which will increase to 85% this fall with the Fox deal.
“We are delighted with the enthusiastic response in the marketplace for Right This Minute,” said John Bryan, president of domestic television distribution at MGM, in a statement. “This agreement with Fox Television Stations is another vote of confidence.”
Right This Minute is a half-hour video clip show with the show’s co-hosts commenting on the videos and sometimes interviewing the people in the videos.
Its co-hosts are Gayle Bass, Nick Calderone, Steven Fabian, Beth Troutman and Christian Vera.
This season, it is averaging a 1.1 household rating, tied with shows such as Sony’s Queen Latifah, according to Nielsen.
Right This Minute is produced by MagicDust Television in partnership with stations groups Cox Media, E.W. Scripps and Raycom.
