Fox Stations Launch 11:30 P.M. Newscasts

Since the Fox broadcast network abandoned many of its latenight aspirations after an ill-fated effort led by Chevy Chase ended in 1993, its stations have become home to syndicated comedies that air at 11:30 and have run the gamut from Seinfeld to 30 Rock. Now, however, executives at Fox Television Stations Group, which comprises 28 stations that reach 37% of U.S. homes, are replacing the  syndicated fare in favor of latenight shows produced by their local news operations.
