Fox swaps slots for ‘Wanted,’ ‘Front Page’

Fox Broadcasting Co. will flop “America’s Most Wanted” with the newsmagazine “Front Page,” with the felon-catching hour moving to its new 9 p.m. Saturday slot Jan. 22.

The weblet said it feels “Most Wanted” will be more compatible with another Fox Television Stations-produced hour, “Cops.”

“Front Page,” which moves to its new 9 p.m. Tuesday slot Feb. 1, has been dropping sharply off its “Cops” lead-in.

Meanwhile, Fox finally got some good Nielsen news for Tuesday as the Henry Winkler vehicle “Monty” opened with an 8.6 rating, 13 share — the web’s best Tuesday-night rating since it began regularly programming the night last January , helping drop “Saved by the Bell: The College Years” (6.3/10) to its second lowest rating yet.

“Roc” (5.2/8) and “Most Wanted” (5.6/8) couldn’t maintain the prosperity, but the “Monty” numbers — including a 17 share of adults 18-49 — still boosted the weblet to its best Tuesday average this season.
