Par TV, CBS O&Os ink deals for Mandel

Paramount Domestic TV has inked deals with CBS-owned stations in New York and Los Angeles for its upcoming talkshow with Howie Mandel.

Paramount officials declined comment, but the studio had been expected to seal station deals in the nation’s top two TV markets by mid-week (Daily Variety, July 25). “The Howie Mandel Show” is set to bow next June.

Sources familiar with deals estimated the show garnered a weekly license fee of about $35,000 to $40,000 in each market. Sources said the CBS O&Os and Chris Craft/United’s WWOR New York and KCOP Los Angeles were the only serious bidders.

To date, Par has sold the show to 49 stations covering about 42% of U.S. TV households. With New York and L.A. in the bag, Par’s attention will likely shift to Chicago, where CBS O&O WBBM is said to be the leading contender.
