'Fastlane,' 'John Doe' get Fox's approval

13 November 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fox Broadcasting Co. has made its first full-season pickups this fall, ordering nine additional episodes each of the new dramas Fastlane and John Doe. Warner Bros. TV's Fastlane got off to a slow start in the Wednesday 9 p.m. period. "We're so glad that our work is being appreciated by (the network) and that they're showing faith in the face of so-so ratings," said John McNamara, who is executive producing with McG and Daniel Rappaport. John Doe is produced by Regency TV, with Brandon Camp, Mimi Leder and Mike Thompson executive producing. No decision has been made yet on Joss Whedon's sci-fi series Firefly, which has been given an order for six additional scripts, and on the new sketch comedy Cedric the Entertainer Presents. »

'24' return kick-starts Fox just in time for Nov. sweep

31 October 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Kiefer Sutherland may only be an hour into his latest marathon workday on Fox's 24, but Tuesday's sophomore season opener of the acclaimed real-time drama has already helped save at least one night of the week for his network. Just as Fox Broadcasting Co. brass were preparing to slog through a difficult November sweep, which begins tonight, 24 burst out of the gate Tuesday with its best-ever Nielsen numbers. The return of the Emmy-winning series, combined with a resurgent That '70s Show, helped Fox win the Tuesday contest by a wide margin in young adult demos. 24, which undoubtedly benefited from a special presentation without commercial breaks arranged for the season premiere, dominated its 9 p.m. slot with an average of 13.5 million viewers and a 6.5 rating/16 share in the adults 18-49 demographic. Fox sorely needed some good Nielsen news after enduring the disruption of series pre-emptions from its postseason baseball coverage, a two-episodes-and-out flop in David E. Kelley's girls club and a weak start for Joss Whedon's Firefly, among other stumbles in its season launch thus far. "We're so optimistic about Tuesday night," Fox entertainment president Gail Berman said. "We have always believed in the show, but 24's return was beyond my wildest expectations." »

Net chiefs admit sked mistakes

30 October 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Fox made a mistake in previewing several nights of its primetime schedule, only to interrupt its flow with postseason baseball, Fox Broadcasting entertainment president Gail Berman conceded Tuesday. Speaking at an International Radio & Television Society Foundation breakfast in New York with her fellow network chieftains, Berman said Fox will "re-examine how it will roll out" its schedule next year because this year's plan caused "disarray in terms of getting a toehold in those time periods." Fox delayed the debut of its Thursday and Sunday night lineups until after the World Series, but the network introduced some new shows last month, including the heavily promoted dramas Firefly (starring Nathan Fillion), Fastlane and John Doe, only to have to pre-empt them for baseball. In the mea culpa category, NBC entertainment president Jeff Zucker conceded a mistake on his part, saying the network should not have moved its movie franchise from Sunday to Saturday nights. "We made a mistake in not being more aggressive in going after Saturday night," he said. I regret it. The network execs said they have no intention of abandoning Saturdays, even though HUT (households using television) levels there are dismal. Films have proved to be poor ratings grabbers on network television as most people have already seen them in other windows. But Zucker and ABC entertainment president Susan Lyne said the networks paid dearly for their packages and have to play them somewhere. »
