So far this season, The CW has been enjoying some ratings success in its target younger demos, but that hasn’t extended to the Sunday night block it outsourced to Media Rights Capital. “The MRC shows are simply not working,” said COO John Maatta in a memo sent to affiliates. Those shows will get their final airings this weekend. The new lineup beginning November 30th will feature sitcom reruns, “Jericho” (which has fanatical viewers, but was cancelled by CBS) and a movie.
“Our plan is to program Sunday with distinctive, first-rate programming that can quickly stabilize the night. We will work with you to promote and market this new night, with a lineup that will include quality scripted series and contemporary theatrical titles,” the memo stated.
Here is the new Sunday lineup:
5:00 – 6:00 pm: EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS/THE GAME
6:00 – 7:00 pm: THE DREW CAREY SHOW
7:00 – 8:00 pm: JERICHO
8:00 – 10:00 pm: MOVIE
