    I read somewhere that Frasier was going to start showing reruns on Lifetime in March. Does any one know if they are still going through with this or not?

    I think they are. I read an article a long time ago that said they paid somewhere around $600,000 per episode.

    WOW that is a lot of money - are you sure it's not per season? They are showing them here (Denmark) on season 7 (I think) now and they show two episodes a day twice a day (same episodes in two different time slots)

    Cable network Lifetime has acquired the exclusive cable rights to "Frasier," which will end its 11-year network run on NBC this season. The network will begin airing the venerable sitcom in March 2006, when the local stations currently airing it lose their exclusivity. It is expected to air "Frasier" twice per weekday but has not scheduled either run. Beating out bids from Turner Broadcasting, MTV Networks and Oxygen, Lifetime landed "Frasier" for about $600,000 per episode, according to sources, as well as a barter exchange that gives the program's distributor, Paramount Domestic Television, 90 seconds of ad time per day.

    I'm so glad you posted this, otherwise I would never have known! Two "Frasier" episodes per weekday? It's going to be a loooong 2006.

    I just looked ahead at my on-screen channel guide on my digital cable box. There are 2 double-bills per day @ 1 PM and 11 PM.

    The very first slot @ 1 starts right from the beginning with The Good Son and Space Quest. Apparently the episodes they air at the 1 PM slot will repeat @ the 11 PM slot so there is really only 2 eps per day.

    Did some parts get cut in Lifetime's syndication? I just finished watching "Roz and the Schnoz", and they cut the line where Roz tells Frasier she posed nude for her art lessons.

    Any sitcom rerun placed in syndication gets about 3-5 minutes edited from the originally aired broadcast for the addition of extra commercials. The edited versions are the same no matter which local TV station or cable network is broadcasting it. They got to recoup those per episode costs somehow.

    Another reason to get the DVDs. By the way, Amazon has a huge 50% sale on TV DVD's right now. Ridiculously low prices.
