First-Run Dating Reality Strip "Excused" Now Sold in 46 of the Top 50 Markets

LOS ANGELES - January 26, 2011 - CBS Television Distribution (CTD) has sold the new first-run syndicated strip "Excused" to stations in 80% of the country, it was announced today by Joe DiSalvo, President of Sales for CTD.

"Excused" is now cleared in 46 of the top 50 markets.

"Stations were very enthusiastic about 'Excused' at NATPE," DiSalvo said. "They saw it as a perfect asset for their late night or access lineups."

The show was sold cash plus barter into mostly late fringe and access time periods for a fall 2011 launch.

"Excused" will be produced by Renegade 83 Entertainment, best known for its hit syndicated dating show "Blind Date," and executive produced by David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe. Hosted by Iliza Shlesinger, who won the sixth season of "Last Comic Standing," each episode of "Excused" will start with a group of men competing for the affections of two women (or vice versa). Once the two women have eliminated the group of men down to one, the final man standing will have the opportunity to select the woman he wants to date.

CBS Television Distribution is the preeminent company in television syndication. CTD produces or distributes 12 first-run series and holds the largest distributed television library at 70,000 hours strong. CTD is a unit of CBS Corp.
