WPIX sets fall sked

NEW YORK — Tribune Co. flagship WPIX New York unveiled its fall sked Thursday, highlighted by the addition of “Frasier” to its late weeknight lineup, and a shift for the dynamic pair “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Xena: Warrior Princess” from Saturday nights to Thursday primetime.

Paramount’s “Frasier” will replace the current “Cheers” reruns in the 11:30 p.m. slot, to follow “Seinfeld” reruns at 11 p.m. “Seinfeld” consistently nabs top ratings at 11, and should provide a strong lead-in for “Frasier” as it runs up against “The Late Show With David Letterman” on WCBS and “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on WNBC, as well as the tail end of the two hourlong newcomers “The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show” on Fox’s WNYW and “Vibe” on UPN’s WWOR, both at 11 p.m.

Universal-produced actioners “Hercules” and “Xena” will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., respectively.
