The WB 100+ Station Group has acquired rights to the second syndication cycle of the Carsey-Werner sitcom “That ’70s Show” in the 100+ markets.

“That ’70s Show,” which has been renewed for an eighth season by Fox, first appeared in syndication in fall 2002. The second cycle of “That ’70s Show” has already been cleared in 75 percent of the country. The cash-plus-barter strip will air on all WB 100+ Station Group stations starting in fall 2008.

The deal was announced Wednesday by Lynn Stepanian, senior VP of programming and distribution for The WB 100+ Station Group; and Jim Kraus, president of Carsey-Werner Domestic Television Distribution.
