WB Expands Sunday Slate

The WB will add two hours of repeat programming on Sunday nights from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting in the fall, the network said yesterday. The shows that will fill the new two-hour block will be same-week airings of prime time WB shows, the network said, but the specific programs are to be announced at a later date. The network programs six nights of prime time each week, with the exception of Saturday, which is a tough night to reach viewers and particularly tough to reach the younger-skewing WB audience.
