The CW’s Sunday Lineup Takes Shape
Media Rights Capital to Supply Four Original Shows for Sunday-Night Block
By Alex Weprin -- Broadcasting & Cable, 5/27/2008 11:30:00 AM
The block will run from 6:30 p.m.-10 p.m. and will feature four original shows produced by MRC.
From 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., the network will air In Harm’s Way, from American Chopper producer Craig Piligian, an hour-long reality show that profiles people with dangerous jobs.
From 7:30 p.m.-8 p.m., The CW will air comedy Surviving Suburbia, about a family in the suburbs that get new neighbors.
The 8 p.m.-9 p.m. hour will be for Valentine Inc., a drama/comedy about a dating agency.
From 9 p.m.-10 p.m., The CW will air Easy Money, a drama about a family that runs a high-interest loan business.
The shows will begin production, pilot-free, in June and will premiere on The CW in September.
With titles and synopses like those, perhaps not ordering pilots will prove to be a bad business decision. Somebody's going to put live variety back on Sunday night TV and take the daypart. Imagine Will Ferrell hosting a 21st century of the Sullivan Show, butressed with live comedy and the hottest musical acts, a "rilly big shew" appealing to Idol fans and the boomers alike. Now, someone, go do it. Say it was YOUR idea.
