Spike TV Launch Date for Entourage Reruns; 36th Annual People's Choice Awards Winners

Back in May we announced that Spike TV had gotten rerun rights on cable to the premium cable comedy Entourage. We mentioned that it would start in January and be shared with sister network Comedy Central. We haven't gotten news yet on Comedy Central, but Spike TV will air it Tuesdays starting Jan. 12!
The Emmy, Golden Globe, and Peabody Award-winning series Entourage will begin its basic cable run on Spike TV this Tuesday, January 12 with back-to-back episodes starting at 9pm, et/pt. The series will televise in this timeslot through October, and will feature two premiere episodes each week. After that, it will be available for five-days-a-week play. It will be then shared with WGN America and local broadcast syndication starting in Fall 2010.
Spike TV will have encores of the two episodes later in the night at 11pm & 11:30pm as well. Whenever Comedy Central announces a date, we'll let you know. It could be this fall though.
Stay with us in the coming weeks for NATPE (Jan. 25-27), where we will find out what will be offered in syndication this fall (2010).
