'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' Returns As Syndie Strip This Fall

Broadcasting & Cable, 2.14.2011
By Paige Albiniak

Franchise series sold in more than 90% of U.S.
NBC Universal's Law & Order: Criminal Intent is returning to broadcast syndication as a strip starting this fall, the syndicator said Monday (Feb. 14). The show, which for the first time is being offered as a two-hour block, has been sold to stations covering more than 90% of the country, including broadcast groups Fox, CBS, Sinclair, Hearst, LIN and Local TV.

Criminal Intent is currently airing on MyNetwork TV and USA, although it previously aired as a syndicated strip from 2007 to 2009. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which currently airs in broadcast syndication, is ending that run for now and expected to take CI's place on My Network TV, although that deal is not confirmed.

Law & Order, the first of the franchise, is cleared in well over 90% of the country to premiere on weekends this fall, marking the mothership's first shot at broadcast syndication, although it's long been a cable staple.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent is produced by Wolf Films and Universal Cable Productions. The show was created and executive produced by Dick Wolf, and was developed by Rene Balcer.

**Strip/daily syndication--
Off-network syndication can take several forms. The most common form is known as strip syndication or daily syndication, when episodes of a television series are shown daily five times a week. Typically, this means that enough episodes must exist (88 episodes, or four seasons, is the usual minimum,[1] though many syndicators prefer a fully rounded 100 episodes) to allow for continual strip syndication to take place over the course of several months, without episodes being shown again. However, there are exceptions, such as the 65-episode block (common in children's programming), which allows for a 13-week cycle of daily showings, so there will only be four repeats in a year.- Wikipedia

Interesting! Right now, I get CI on USA, MyNetwork, WGN and Oxygen (and occasionally Bravo). Which I'm VERY happy about, lol. Does this mean it won't be on those channels anymore?

Doesn't matter that I've seen all the eppies; I'll keep watching.

I do hope the actors get a nice cut of the profits; they certainly deserve it!

Oh yeah. I lost my five days a week of LOCI after Christmas this year. Glad to hear I'll be getting it back.
