    The Bill Engvall Show to air on CBS

    It appears that TBS's comedy The Bill Engvall Show will air on CBS this summer. It will premiere on Monday June 9 @ 8:00pm. Season 1 will air on CBS, while season 2 will air on TBS. I don't have any press releases yet; however I do have CBS's schedule from cbs.com.

    With My Boys airing on E!, The Bill Engvall show airing on CBS and Braves Baseball airing on peachtree, I can now say that I don't miss TBS at all.

    And finally, CBS has quietly slated an encore of TBS's "The Bill Engvall Show" for Monday, June 9 at 8:00/7:00c. No reason for the stunt was given.

    CBS still has the Bill Engvall Show scheduled for June 9. However, they don't on June 16. This has got to be one of the stangest scheduling moves on US TV in the past few years.

    Turns out this is a one time only event, the deal is CBS will air the pilot which will promote the new season on TBS, and in return TBS will promote CBS's fall shows later this season.

    Variety article:

    CBS and Turner have struck an unprecedented marketing deal that includes a plum timeslot on the Eye next week for TBS' "The Bill Engvall Show."

    A repeat "Bill Engvall" seg from last season is set to air Monday night at 8 on CBS; during the episode, Turner will get a chance to promote the series' upcoming season, which bows June 12 on TBS.
    In exchange, Turner will hand promo time over to CBS this fall to run a major campaign around the Eye's new lineup. No money will exchange hands in the deal.
    Turner topper Steve Koonin first approached CBS marketing maven George Schweitzer about the quid pro quo. Cabler felt CBS' Monday night laffer sked repped a perfect fit for the antics of Engvall and company.
    "For TBS, airing an episode of 'The Bill Engvall Show' on CBS provides an opportunity to introduce the series to a new group of fans and is a great way for people to sample the show," Turner spokeswoman Karen Cassell said. CBS noted that its Monday night lineup is "beachfront property for a comedy," while Turner offered a "valuable off-net marketing opportunity" for the Eye.
