'Comics Unleashed' lands on MyNetworkTV

Byron Allen series will join network's Wednesday lineup

"Comics Unleashed With Byron Allen" is going primetime.

Starting Wednesday, April 8, MyNetworkTV will begin airing the half-hour syndicated series every week with back-to-back episodes from 9-10 p.m.

In addition, the show will continue on TV One and in syndication on broadcast television stations nationwide, representing 90% of the country.

The move is part of MyNet's recently announced new strategy of cutting back on original programming in favor of syndicated product.

The first syndicated show to premiere in HD, "Comics Unleashed" was created and developed by Byron Allen, chairman and CEO of Entertainment Studios.

Comedians who have appeared on it include Dane Cook, Howie Mandel and Margaret Cho.
