Nick Jr Comes To CBS Saturday Mornings

As a result of the pending merger between CBS and Viacom, which owns

Nickelodeon, some of Nick Jr.'s top preschool shows may air on CBS Saturday

mornings. The shows would help breath life into CBS' low-rated block of

Saturday morning children's programming according to executives from both

companies who spoke on condition of anonymity. No final decision has been

made on which shows will air on CBS, though the hits BLUE'S CLUES and

LITTLE BILL are almost Eyeball Channel bound. The move is reminiscent of

when ABC let parent company Walt Disney revamp its Saturday morning

line-up. The impending new schedule on CBS wouldn't directly compete with

Nick's older audience-oriented Saturday morning. Executives said the change

would begin in Fall 2000.
