WB Net Revamps Sunday Slate

The WB Network will revise its Sunday night lineup by moving “Simon” to 7:30 p.m. while putting the new comedies “Cleghorne!” and “First Time Out” on hiatus.

“Simon,” from TriStar TV, has received a full-season order and apparently will undergo some minor changes to make the show more compatible with its new lead-in, the animated “Pinky and the Brain.”

The netlet also has picked up the new Warner Bros. TV comedy “Kirk,” which will follow “Sister, Sister” at 8:30 p.m. leading into “Savannah,” the WB net’s first drama.

“Savannah,” which comes from Aaron Spelling Prods., will premiere with a two-hour episode Jan. 21. The complete revised lineup will premiere Feb. 4.

The program service does intend to play out remaining episodes of “Cleghorne!” and “First Time,” which are produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Columbia Pictures TV, respectively. A WB spokesman said neither of the two benched shows is officially canceled.

The WB net has cut back its order from 22 to 16 episodes on “First Time Out,” which recently brought on board a new exec producer, Pamela Eells, whose credits include “Mad About You” and, more recently, “Brotherly Love.”
