The PJs Makes WB Debut During Olympics

As counter-programming to the Summer Olympics, the WB Network has decided to begin airing new episodes of THE PJS. The foamation toon will make its official switch from Fox to the WB in a special airing on Friday, September 8, 2000 at 8:30 pm. The Warner Bros./Imagine/Will Vinton Studios production will then join the Sunday line-up on September 10, 2000 at 8:30 pm and will move to 7 pm once the regular season starts. The Eddie Murphy-voiced toon will also have another Friday run on September 15. Executive VP of programming at the WB, Jordan Levin, said to the DAILY VARIETY, "We have been eagerly anticipating seeing THE PJS on our air since we acquired the series from Fox. Our faith in this unique series, with broad crossover appeal, has been confirmed this summer with its strong performance [on Fox] across several key demographics."
