Broadcasting & Cable:

Scripps is producing a pair of new programs that will debut Sept. 17 in seven of the company's 13 TV markets. The programs, a game show called Let's Ask America and a news mag called The List, are replacing Scripps' current syndicated shows, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, in access and early fringe. Scripps has made a substantial effort to produce its own programming and cut back on syndicated costs. It is a partner, along with Cox and Raycom, on the daily show RightThisMinute ... The shows launch in Phoenix, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Tampa and Tulsa. When contracts for other syndicated shows expire in the remaining Scripps markets (Detroit, Denver, San Diego, Indianapolis, Kansas City, West Palm Beach and Bakersfield), Let's Ask America and The List will move into those timeslots.
