My Network is Desperate

Fox's new TV network, My Network TV, has signed a two-year deal with Buena Vista Television allowing weekend rebroadcasts of the hit BV series Desperate Housewives. The deal, which begins in 2008, lets My Network run Housewives on Fox's 10 owned and operated TV stations, but not on Fox affiliate stations.

Housewives premiered in the fall of 2004 and quickly became one of TV's top-rated shows. The ABC series will finish out the 2005-06 season as the number two scripted show on television and third overall, following reality series American Idol and crime drama CSI.

My Network is scheduled to launch on September 5 and already has a lineup heavy on Housewives-style soap operas. The launch schedule includes the Bo Derek-starrer Secret Obsessions, which is about the juicy behind-the-scenes shenanigans of the fashion industry, and Desires, a nightly telenovela based on a Columbian nighttime soap.

Other series slated for My Network include Friends & Enemies, which is about a fake psychologist who falls in love with the patient she is pretending to treat, and To Love and Die, which is about a pilot and an heiress who survive a plane crash, only to fall in love.

I know this messages is about three years over do, but Fashion House could have been an intriguing night time soap. All the network needed to do was get better writers, and train the character to be a bit more believeable. Hey, you never know MY Network could havw started another Melrose Place craze. I really do think FASHION HOUSE, and also and Desire should get another shot. The other soaps that came along after that came on after they're season run, in my opinion...can get canned.



Thanks

I have a strong feeling that the "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES" repeats on MyNetworkTV will be "rolled out" sooner than announced, if the ratings for their first efforts, "DESIGN" and "FASHION HOUSE", are any indication.

It seems that my network tv is just a network for only 2 hours. I mean come on, they could have addeed some other new shows than to just have 2 soap operas. In my opinion they could have just had those 2 soaps merged with the cw.

My Network TV is the greatest thing to come to broadcast television- it has more daring shows than traditional networks like its new series Fashion House and Desires. Check them out! You won't be disappointed.

If My Network is smart, why didn't they take whatever shows were left from the WB/UPN merger and air them? Everwood would defintely have a nicer home. That would have been cool. Other than that, this network is trash!

A TV channel that relies on 2 year old repeats? C'mon, that screams "failure" to me. Haven't these people heard of DVD boxsets?!
