Fox Shows Go On Baseball Hiatus

With the beginning of post-season baseball, Fox, as usual, is putting its primetime schedule on hiatus, but, according to AdWeek, is in better shape this year at this time than it was in the past, with ratings up 10 percent over last year. John Rash, chief broadcast negotiator at ad agency Campbell Mithun, told the trade publication that although Fox will essentially have to reintroduce all of its shows after the World Series concludes, it will have an advantage over rival networks afterwards since it will have more first-run episodes to air. "Fox will also be able to sit back and look at their competitors' schedules to see what shows are working or not working, and perhaps adjust their own schedule to take advantage in some places," Rash said. Meanwhile, the Hollywood Reporter reported that the new sitcom 'Til Death will stay off the air for an additional week because star Brad Garrett was unhappy with the latest script.
