Fox TV’s New Daytimers Post Modest Ratings

The Fox station group’s new originals, Hollywood Today Live and The Daily Helpline, are posting modest ratings in the first week of their six-week summer tests on select stations.

National Not Crucial For Fox Summer Tests

Fox is testing three shows that are a good fit for its stations, and that make financial sense for Fox and its syndication partners, even if the shows don’t roll out nationally. “If these shows don’t go into national syndication and they work for us, and we can afford to do them, I don’t care if they’re on anywhere else,” says Frank Cicha, SVP of programming at Fox Television Stations.

Fox Stations To Test Three Summer Programs

Hollywood Today Live and The Daily Help Line will debut on July 14, with Laughs premiering Aug. 2 on select Fox Television Stations.
