Fox cancels ‘Monty’ sneak

Fox Broadcasting Co. has abandoned plans for a Sunday night sneak preview of the Henry Winkler series “Monty” on Jan. 9.

Under its revised sked, Fox will air the premiere episode of “Monty” on Jan. 11 in its regular 8 p.m. Tuesday night slot.

A spokesman said Fox chose to scrap the earlier airing so it could focus all of its promotion efforts for the new mid-season sitcom, which involves a right-wing cable talkshow host at odds with his liberal family, on a single night.

On Jan. 9, the weblet will air a rerun of “Married … With Children” in the 30 p.m. slot originally held for “Monty.”
