Tribune, Sinclair Pick Up Daily Mail TV Show

Sources say Sinclair and Tribune have agreed to carry the show from Dr. Phil McGraw and his son Jay, first announced in June 2015, giving it the clearances it needs to get off the ground this fall.

Nearly two years ago, the U.K.-based Daily Mail said that it was teaming with Dr. Phil McGraw and his son Jay on a syndicated magazine show based on the tabloid website.

It appears that those plans are finally coming to fruition.

Sinclair and Tribune have agreed to carry the show, giving it the clearances it needs to get off the ground this fall, according to informed sources.

Tribune reaches 44% of the TV homes; Sinclair, 39%. However, the groups have overlapping stations in several markets, including Washington, Seattle, St. Louis and Portland, Ore. The overlaps reduce the groups’ combined coverage.

CBS Television Distribution is handling distribution.

My guess is if Daily Mail is in the West Michigan market it would go on FOX17 as it has more slots to fill unlike WWMT just my opinion as Sinclair owns WWMT & Tribune owns FOX17. I haven’t ever really read anything on the Daily Mail I may watch it in the first week to see if it’s any good.
