Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution has cleared “TMZ” on the Fox Television Stations group through the 2010-11 season, keeping the show on the air in top markets including New York (WNYW), Los Angeles (KTTV) and Chicago (WFLD).

According to Warner Bros., “TMZ” — now in its second season — is the No. 2 entertainment mag with adults 18-49.
