Fox First Run Renews Five Original Syndicated Shows
Fox First Run has renewed five original programs: You Bet Your Life with Jay Leno, Pictionary, 25 Words or Less, Dish Nation and Divorce Court. These Fox First Run programs will continue to run on the Fox-owned stations through the 2023-24 season. These add to the FTS daytime programming schedule with the previously renewed TMZ, TMZ Live, The Jennifer Hudson Show and Sherri.
In making the announcement, Stephen Brown, EVP of programming and development for Fox First Run and Fox Television Stations, said: “One of the topics that came up at the inaugural industry syndication event, The Summit, was the strength and staying power of legacy shows. They are like good old friends that we turn to every day. In the fall, Divorce Court is going into its 25th season, Dish Nation will be in its 12th season, 25 Words or Less will start its fifth season and You Bet Your Life its third season. Week by week, Pictionary continues to grow.”
