In the LA TV market, half-hour entertainment news show HOLLYSCOOP has a very tough Saturday time slot. They’re on at 11:30pm on KCOP, opposite Saturday Night Live.
But the good news is that the show repeats at the same time Sunday, when DVRs across the basin should be much more widely available. And now, thanks to an impressive new push into national syndication, many more stations are carrying the program co-hosted by HOLLYSCOOP co-founder Diana Madison and Brian Corsetti, who has previously done work for FOX Sports and CBS Sports.
In the two other major U.S. markets, HOLLYSCOOP can be found at 1:30 a.m. Sundays in New York on WLNY and 12:30 a.m. Saturdays in Chicago on WPWR. Madison, after working on the production side for Entertainment Tonight and The Insider, launched HOLLYSCOOP as a blog and watched it explode once streaming red carpet coverage was added.
