Mork & Mindy Finally Being Used on Syfy; Details on Glee's Fall 2013 Broadcast Syndication Airings

Syfy has aired Mork & Mindy only a few times via a marathon since they got the rights to the series in 2008. The first marathon was in November 2008 on the day after Thanksgiving then another airing didn't occur unil July 2009. It hasn't been seen since. Now, Syfy has scheduled a few filler airings of the sitcom in March. The first filler airing will be on Sunday, March 6, 2011 in the 9am hour with the two-part episode "Mork vs. The Necrotons" airing. Then it will be seen again with three more airings on the late night schedule on Sunday, March 20, 2011 (technically Monday, March 21) from 4am-5:30am. Episodes scheduled are "Stark Raving Mork," "Mork Vs. Mindy," and "Mork Gets Mindy-itis." It looks like it is being used as a filler from time-to-time, but it isn't as frequent as say Wings or Becker on sister network USA Network. Hopefully it will be used more after this, but a regular timeslot would be better, even if it is in the late night/over night time periods. Stay with us for continued updates on Mork & Mindy sightings on Syfy...it's like watching UFO's.

In addition to its airings on cable on Oxygen in Fall 2013, Glee will be airings weekends on local broadcast syndication in Fall 2013 as well. The show has been cleared on Fox stations in top markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Houston, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Orlando and Baltimore. It will air either once a week or twice a week on weekends, depending on the station's needs.
Reruns of Glee have already begun airing on Oxygen in marathons, which secured the cable syndication rights last year for $500,000 an episode. The Super Bowl weekend marathon brought the network record ratings, but as we first reported Glee will begin airing regularly on Oxygen in Fall 2013. Oxygen's original series The Glee Project will premiere in June.
