Buena Vista Television Renews 'The Tony Danza Show' for a Second Season

BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 8 -- Buena Vista Television has renewed "The Tony Danza Show" for a second season, it was announced today by Janice Marinelli, President, Buena Vista Television.

"'The Tony Danza Show' debuted last fall as the season's #1 new first-run hour in syndication and has proven to be a great fit for daytime television. We could not be more pleased," said Marinelli. "In the November sweep the show delivered the highest share of any new first-run strip among women 18-49 and 25-54. The show's strong performance, Tony's ability to connect with the daytime audience and the steadfast support of our station groups provide a strong foundation for a second season."

"The success of 'The Tony Danza Show' is a direct result of Tony's immense talent, versatility and broad appeal, coupled with a creative and driven production team," said Gwynne Thomas, Executive Vice President, Development, Buena Vista Productions. "We are very excited and look forward to a dynamite season two."

"This is the greatest job I've ever had and the fact that I get to keep doing it is a dream come true," said Tony Danza. "I thank the audience, Buena Vista and everyone who works on the show because I couldn't do it without them."

The live daytime talker has station renewals in 115 markets and over 80 percent of the country for the 2005-2006 season. Many of the second season clearances represent time period and station upgrades for the show, most notably in Los Angeles, where Danza will be upgraded to a daytime clearance on one of the Viacom Television Station Group's Los Angeles stations (KCBS/KCAL).

"The Tony Danza Show" has delivered strong local ratings in major markets across the country. In its most recent full week (NSI Overnight WRAP data, 1/31/05- 2/4/05), "The Tony Danza Show" averaged a 2.3 HH rating on all metered market ABC-CBS-NBC stations broadcasting the show during the daytime hours of 9 am-4 pm. In the January 2005 sweep, the show posted significant ratings gains in many key markets when compared against year-ago (January 2004) time period averages. Markets/stations with elevated HH ratings include: Detroit (WDIV) +6%, Orlando (WFTV) +38%, Milwaukee (WTMJ) +19% and West Palm Beach (WPBF) +43%.

"The Tony Danza Show" is a live, entertainment talk show featuring celebrities and everyday people, all presented with a positive and upbeat approach, and is distributed in national syndication by Buena Vista Television.
