2012-2013 primetime schedule premieres
"House," "Numb3rs," and "White Collar" join lineup
TVW is pleased to announce the premiere of its 2012-2013 primetime programming schedule featuring the addition of three critically-acclaimed audience favorites.
Through the MyNetworkTV programming service, TVW has added back-to-back episodes of "House" to Tuesday nights, "Numb3rs" to Wednesday nights, and the USA Network hit "White Collar" to Thursday nights.
"Law & Order: SVU" remains on Monday nights while "Monk" returns to Friday nights.
In announcing the additions, Paul Franklin, executive vice president of MyNetworkTV, said, "Viewers continue to positively respond to MyNetworkTV's nightly block of procedural programming. Comprised of hit television series with dynamic characters and compelling stories, we are thrilled to enhance our schedule even further with the additions of 'House,' 'Numb3rs,' and 'White Collar.'"
The medical drama "House," which recently completed a very successful eight-season run on FOX, is a series in which the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.
"House" has been honored with five Emmy Awards, including an award for creator and executive producer David Shore (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series). The series has been nominated for 25 Emmys, including four for Outstanding Drama Series and six for Hugh Laurie (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series).
"Numb3rs" is a drama about an FBI agent who recruits his mathematical-genius brother to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles. The two brothers take on the most confounding criminal cases from a very distinctive perspective.
Inspired by actual events and starring David Krumholtz and Rob Morrow, "Numb3rs" depicts how the confluence of police work and mathematics provides unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing criminal questions.
"White Collar" is about the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. When Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), Neal suggests a plan: He'll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can't be found on the right side of the law.
