Report: FOX to give 11-11:30 p.m. CT Saturday night slot back to affiliates
Network changes mind after originally planning to air Animation Domination repeats in that slot
Deadline reports this afternoon that FOX will turn back to its affiliates the 11-11:30 p.m. (midnight-12:30 a.m. ET) timeslot on Saturday nights.
The shift will take place on Sept. 7.
FOX's original plan for the timeslot was to air reruns of its primetime Animation Domination shows following its new late-night Animation Domination High-Def block.
The report indicates that the extra affiliate time will help the stations offset possible disruptions in the fall if any NFL games should run long.
