Syndication update

– Debmar-Mercury has cleared 85% of the country for the ninth syndicated season of Family Feud, which was previously distributed by Tribune Entertainment. Debmar-Mercury has also recruited Twentieth Television to sell ad time for Feud and off-cable weekly sci-fi hour The Dead Zone. That program has also been sold to 85% of the country, including season two renewals for ABC O&O’s here in Chicago (WLS-TV) and in San Francisco (KGO-TV).

– And a fourth season has been green lighted for Atlas’ syndicated half hour-long courtroom strip Eye for an Eye.
