MyNetwork Makes Tuesdays Special Nights

Apr 12, 2007  •  Post A Comment

MyNetworkTV plans to air a series of weekly specials on Tuesdays in May and, at least temporarily, will reduce its telenovela programming to a single night per week.

Starting April 24, the fledging network will run specials such as “Hawaiian Tropic International Beauty Pageant,” “Hooters Dream Girl Challenge,” “America’s Trashiest Weddings” and “Body Doubles: International Twins Search.”

In addition, the network will air two celebrity-driven specials produced by “Access Hollywood,” “Anna Nicole Smith — Centerfold Revisited” and “Britney Spears — A Pop Idol Exposed.”

The specials are an attempt to broaden MyNetwork’s audience after shutting down production on its telenovela slate. During May, the telenovelas will continue to air on Wednesdays.
