TBS Superstation secured syndication rights to CBS sitcom The King of
Queens from Sony Pictures Television.
The six-year deal enables TBS to strip 125 episodes -- sources estimated the
deal at $425,000 per installment -- in September 2006.
A year later, FX will strip Fox comedy Malcolm in the Middle, from
Twentieth TV. The five-year pact carries a reported $600,000-per-episode price
