'King of Queens' Coming to Spike TV in 2011
In 2013, it will air on MTV Networks sister channel TV Land
NEW YORK - Hit sitcom The King of Queens is coming to MTV Networks' Spike TV in prime time next fall and to sister network TV Land in 2013. It will also continue to air on TBS.
The series will start on its new prime time cable home beginning in Oct. 2011. After Spike TV, the show will move to TV Land in 2013. A TBS spokeswoman said the Turner network will split the rights, meaning it will also be able to keep the show, which it airs weekdays at 6pm.
John Griffin, senior vp, programming and acquisitions, Spike TV and Jaclyn Cohen, senior vp, programming and acquisitions, TV Land, who brokered the deal, announced the move on Tuesday.
Spike TV will telecast two back-to-back episodes of The King of Queens in primetime twice a week.
“This is such a relatable comedy and we are sure this show will continue to make both networks’ audiences laugh for many years to come,” said Cohen.
