Fox Stations Reup MNT Through 2016

The programming service's 2013-14 schedule launches on Sept. 30 and includes the addition of Bones and the return of Law & Order: CI.

Fox Television Stations said today that it is extending the MyNetworkTV programming service for an additional two years, through the 2015-16 season.

MNT, with programming Monday through Friday, airs on the Fox Television Stations in each of the top three markets on WWOR New York, KCOP Los Angeles and WPWR Chicago. Additional markets include KDFI Dallas, WDCA Washington, KTXH Houston, KUTP Phoenix, WFTC Minneapolis, WRBW Orlando, Fla., and WMYT Charlotte, N.C.

In making the announcement, Greg Meidel, president of Twentieth Television, said: “The new schedule further elevates MyNetworkTV as destination programming for viewers, station partners and the advertising community. We are thrilled that the Fox Television Stations will continue to share a primetime slate of well-established and compelling procedurals featuring television’s most dynamic characters and story lines.”

The 2013-14 schedule launches on Sept. 30 and includes the addition of the Fox hit Bones and the return of Law & Order: CI. Back-to-back episodes of Law & Order: SVU air each Monday night and a two-hour block of House on Thursday and Monk on Friday nights.

Jim Burke, president, sales, Fox Television Stations said: “The consistency of MyNetworkTV’s successful brand-name lineup is extremely advertiser friendly. From a sell-point, the MyNetworkTV stations continue to deliver in the key demos of adults 18-49 and adults25-54 and performed quite well last year.”

I can’t figure out why MyNetworkTV doesn’t have exclusives to some of their shows. WGN America airs “Law & Order: CI” daily Monday thru Friday PLUS a marathon on Saturday afternoons. ION Television broadcasts “Monk” marathons on Saturdays OR Sundays each weekend. In other words, there are other options out there if you want to see either of those shows.

It’s weird that MNT still exists, and it’s even weirder that Twentieth Television only has one show they own outright on the lineup (Bones). But it is still shows that are comfortable for the USA Network-watching public out there, so I won’t know ’em too much.
