In sort of a surprise, Tribune locals have bought the local syndication rights to Family Guy. The locals get the show starting in fall 2007. The show was said to be going to Fox-owned locals, but Tribune beat them to it. Under terms of the deal, the series will debut in 20 major markets, covering about 38% of the U.S., including WPIX New York, KTLA Los Angeles, and WGN Chicago. Tribune locals recently acquired Two and a Half Men from Warner Bros. Family Guy can currently be seen on Fox Sundays and every night on cable network Cartoon Network.
