TV Guide relists CW, MTV shows

Program info for HBO Family, Versus also added

Listings for the CW and MTV have been reinstated in TV Guide, a month after the mag pulled those networks from its grids.

Decision to dump those channels, and a handful more, from its pages provoked an outcry from execs, particularly at the CW, and from viewers. According to network insiders, viewers were directed to a TV Guide email address in droves to protest the cuts.

As part of the new listings shuffle, TV Guide has also added program info for Fine Living, HBO Family and Versus. But it has removed the listings for broadcast net Ion, as well as cablers Bloomberg TV, ESPN Classic, the N, Planet Green and Toon Disney (which is being relaunched as DisneyXD).

“In order to provide the best in television entertainment coverage for our loyal readers, TV Guide Magazine continually evaluates and tests the magazine’s features in terms of format, design, content and demographic relevance,” TV Guide CEO Scott Crystal said last month.
