The Conners Cleared in More Than 85 Percent of U.S.


Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury has cleared Werner Entertainment’s The Conners in more than 85 percent of the U.S.

Debmar-Mercury secured multiyear access and early fringe deals with leading station groups starting in fall 2024. CBS Television Stations and other broadcasters, including Gray, Nexstar, Lockwood, Scripps and Weigel, have acquired syndication rights to ABC’s sitcom, with more slated to join the lineup.

Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, commented, “With Tom Werner providing the highest-rated sitcom to enter off-network syndication in recent memory, The Conners will serve as the cornerstone of many of our great station partners’ late afternoon and early evening schedules for many years to come. This will provide them with a strong competitive advantage in their most valuable dayparts.”
