'House,' 'Numb3rs' Come To MyNetworkTV
Syndicated episodes of "House, which finished its run on Fox in May, will take over Tuesdays on MyNetworkTV this fall. The News Corp.-owned network runs back-to-back episodes of five different dramas Monday through Friday.
“House” replaces former CBS show “Cold Case,” while ex-CBS drama “Numb3rs” comes on board on Wednesdays with USA’s “White Collar” joining on Thursdays.
“Law & Order: SVU” will be back on Mondays, as will “Monk” on Fridays. MyNetworkTV refers to itself as a “programming service” and News Corp. uses it as part of a duopoly in multiple markets.
“Cold Case” had been on the channel for only one season, while the departing “Burn Notice” and “Without A Trace” had been there for two.
MyNetworkTV said it averaged a 1.7 household rating and 2.5 million viewers for the period starting in September and running through about the end of the May sweeps.
By comparison, CBS posted a 7.4 household rating, followed by ABC and Fox at 5.4 and NBC at 4.6. MyNetworkTV said “Law & Order” has grown by 10% in household ratings to a 2.2 and 6% in total viewers this season to 3.2 million.
