Meanwhile, TV Guide Network bought the exclusive basic cable syndication rights to the series, including all past, current and future episodes, Multichannel News says.
It’s the first major deal for the evolving network under new owners Lionsgate and One Equity Partners. Beginning in October, episodes of the series will air on the cable network two weeks after their broadcast showing. Stripping of reruns begins in fall 2010.
