Good morning, it’s Tuesday, April 3, 2007 and this is your first early morning briefing. 

Tribune Company, with its strategic review process concluded, announced a transaction which will take the company private, with shareholders receiving $34 per share in a two-stage plan. The key player in the deal, Sam Zell is investing $315 million in the company. Once the transaction is complete and the company is privately held, an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) will be established to hold all of Tribune’s outstanding common stock, and Sam will hold a subordinate note and a warrant granting him 40% of Tribune’s common stock. In addition, Sam will join Tribune’s Board upon his initial investment and eventually become Chairman of the Board once the merger is complete, which is expected by the end of this year. Furthermore, Tribune Company has intentions of selling the Chicago Cubs as well as its 25% share in Comcast SportsNet Chicago at the end of the 2007 baseball season. This sale should be concluded by the end of this year; however, the sale of the ball club is subject to approval by Major League Baseball.

A little schedule tweaking yesterday by the broadcasters left a handful of shows by the roadside, and making way for a few new series. Remember – most recent update of the primetime schedule is available on the home page at www.cynopsis.com (scroll down a bit, you’ll see it).

  • Fox‘s Wedding Bells from David E. Kelley will air once more before being sidelined.
  • ABC‘s Six Degrees has seen it’s final airing after it averaged a paltry 1.1 A18-49 rating when it returned to the primetime schedule a couple of weeks ago. Six Degrees will be replaced on Fridays at 9p with repeats of Wife Swap until National Bingo Night launches on May 18.
  • NBC‘s The Black Donnellys will air its last episode on April 16, running just 8 of the 13 episodes ordered. 
  • The Monday night 10p slot for NBC is being filled by The Real Wedding Crashers as of 4/23.  During the six one-hour episodes, wedding couples team up with five improv comedy performers who try to “crash” the wedding any way they can as guests or wedding party staff. The series is produced by Katalyst Films and Television and New Line Television.
  • Notes from the Underbelly on ABC has been moved – rather than air following Grey’s Anatomy on Thursdays at 10p, it’s been moved to Wednesdays at 830p following According to Jim, after its premiere on Thursday 4/12 at 10p.  Sliding back in on Thursdays at 10p for two additional weeks is October Road, airing 4/19 and 4/26.
  • The CW‘s Hidden Palms finally has a launch date – Wednesday, May 30 at 8p.
  • 7th Heaven on the CW will not be picked up for another season … of course, you’ll remember they said that about this little-show-that-could last year around this time. This show’s series finale is scheduled for May 13 at 8p. This season 7th Heaven has averaged each week 3.4 million total viewers.
