Fox group adds 'Chris' for syndication


The Fox-owned station group picked up syndication rights to The CW comedy series "Everybody Hates Chris" in several markets, including New York and Los Angeles, sources said.

The stations group is expected to slot the show on its MyNetworkTV affiliates in the markets for which it secured the rights. The repeats run is slated to begin with the 2009-10 television season. The deals are the first to close among a handful in the first round of sales for the show, which is narrated by Chris Rock. Representatives from CBS TV Distribution, which distributes "Chris," and Fox stations both declined to comment Tuesday.
