Real Housewives repeats will be syndicated in fall 2010

Next fall, The Real Housewives of the O.C., New York City, New Jersey, and Atlanta will all enter syndication, as their collective seasons will have more than 100 episodes, the magic number for syndication. Repeats of the show will air daily on NBC-owned TV stations and other networks.

Broadcasting & Cable reports that “NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution has sold Bravo’s unscripted series The Real Housewives as a one-hour syndicated strip for fall 2010 to NBC’s owned TV stations” and “is now pitching the show to other station groups.”

That “syndicated strip” means that it will air a different episode each day of the week, so you can get through a whole season of fights and table-flips in a couple weeks rather than a few months.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
