Hosted by Iliza Shlesinger, the first-run strip premiered Sept. 12, 2011. It airs in the top three markets on WWOR-TV, New York (Fox); KCAL-TV, Los Angeles (CBS); and WCIU-TV, Chicago (Weigel).
"When Excused premiered last fall, it marked the return of the dating genre to syndication," by Joe DiSalvo, president of sales for CTD, said. "Stations have found it to be a great alternative to off-network sitcoms in their late fringe and access time periods."
Excused is produced by Renegade 83 Entertainment, with David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe serving as executive producers.
