‘Bet,’ ‘Call’ swap slots

KCBS-TV yesterday swapped the canceled “You Bet Your Life” and the recently added strip version of “Emergency Call,” providing syndicator Genesis Entertainment with the station’s entire 7-8 p.m. access hour.

“Call,” which has been airing at 3:30 p.m., moves into the 7:30 slot following its spinoff, “Real Stories of the Highway Patrol.”

In its premiere week, “Highway Patrol” averaged a 6.8 rating/11 share in Nielsen and a 6.9/11 in Arbitron, roughly double “Bet’s” perf in the slot for the February sweeps.

It moved the O&O into third place in the 7 p.m. period, pushing KNBC-TV’s “Entertainment Tonight” into fourth and “Star Trek: The Next Generation” into fifth in both services.
