Carat Programming’s Broadcast and Video Beat reports CBS has acquired the rights to recycle some used content from pay cable sibling Showtime. A squeaky clean version of serial killer drama Dexter will air on Sundays at 10 p.m. as of 2/17. Dexter’s executive producer and WGA member Daniel Cerrone, as well as other writing producers, won’t be involved in creating the edited version for CBS; they’re on strike.
Effective 2/10, CW’s Monday night comedy block will move to Sunday nights, where it briefly aired when the network launched back in September ‘06. Freshman drama Gossip Girl (8 p.m.) followed by Pussycat Dolls: Girlicious (9 p.m.) will occupy Monday nights.
