WB colors in more ‘Blue’

Laffer added to summer sched

The WB has ordered another 13 episodes of its sketch laffer “Blue Collar TV” to air as part of its summer programming plans.

Led by red-state standups Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy, “Blue Collar TV” has earned high marks for the net. During February sweeps, skein wound up in third place among adults 18-34 in the Friday 9:30 p.m. slot.

Show returned to Thursday nights last week, airing originals at 8 p.m. and repeats at 8:30 p.m.

“Blue Collar TV” launched last July as a summer entry for the WB.

“We hope to give it the same jumpstart for its second season,” said WB entertainment prexy David Janollari.

Fax Bahr, Adam Small, J.P. Williams and Foxworthy exec produce “Blue Collar TV,” which comes from Bahr/Small Prods., Parallel Entertainment, Riverside Prods. and Warner Bros. TV.

Meanwhile, Frog announced plans to turn Thursday, April 28 — the first night of May sweeps — into a “Blue Collar Evening.” Net will air an original “Blue Collar TV,” leading into the half-hour special “The Ron White Show” and an hourlong entry, “Mobile Home Disaster,” hosted by Engvall.

The White special will serve as a backdoor pilot (Daily Variety, Sept. 14, 2004). White has been a member of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” live concerts and movies, along with Foxworthy, Engvall and Cable Guy.
