WB to add 'ER,' 'Rules' to Afternoon Lineup

(Posted July 11, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Reruns of "ER" and "8 Simple Rules ... for Dating My Teenage Daughter" will comprise WB Network's new weekday afternoon block when it launches in January.

"ER" will kick off the 3-5 p.m. block, followed by two back-to-back episodes of "8 Simple Rules." The block replaces the Kids' WB! animation block, which is being dropped from WB's 200-plus station affiliates.

Both series are licensed for the block's initial season only, which runs through September. A new schedule at that time will include back-to-back episodes of the sitcom "Reba" at 4 and 4:30 p.m., with the 3-4 p.m. hour yet to be announced.

"ER" enters its 12th season on NBC in the fall. ABC recently canceled family sitcom "8 Simple Rules" after three seasons.
