Networks Finding More Shows In-House

Jun 27, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The percentage of shows on networks supplied by parent companies’ in-house studios increased from 57% in 2006 to 67% in 2008, Media Daily News reports. The CW gets all of its programming from co-owners CBS and Warner Bros., while NBC, ABC, Fox and CBS get 82%, 73%, 70% and 36%, respectively, from their in-house studios, the newspaper says. Cross-ownership can reap “ancillary returns” for the studio and network if the show is a hit, but those that fail can cut into revenues, the Web site notes.
