CMT second home for series


CMT has snapped up off-net rights to two unscripted series — "Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy" and "Nanny 911" — as part of a multiyear licensing agreement with Twentieth Television.

"Spouses" and "Nanny," both Fox series, are set to debut next week, with "Spouses" airing Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at noon and 1 p.m. and with repeats at 6 and 7 p.m. It will alternate days with "Nanny," which will air in the same time periods Tuesdays and Thursdays.

"We believe that the addition of these family-based reality shows to our schedule will not only engage our core fans but attract new viewers as well," CMT vp programming strategy Mary Beth Cunin said.

Twentieth president and COO Bob Cook called the shows "two of television's most memorable family-centered reality series."
