Twentieth Television’s new talk strip “The Suze Orman Show” has been cleared in New York and Los Angeles. Spokeswomen for WCBS-TV in New York and KNBC-TV in Los Angeles confirmed the show has been cleared on their stations for a fall 2005 launch.

“‘The Suze Orman Show’ was always our first choice,” said Lew Leone, president and general manager of Viacom-owned WCBS, in a statement. “And Fox was able to make the deal work for us.” WCBS did not say when the show would run.

Sources said a handful of Viacom-owned CBS stations are also picking up the strip. Twentieth Television declined to comment.

NBC Universal-owned KNBC is expected to run “Suze” at 4 p.m., between “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and local news. Sources said two other NBC Universal stations are also expected to announce “Suze” pickups.
