NBCU’s “Baggage” Cleared for Syndication in 95% of the Country
Game show fans have another dating show to look forward to this coming year. NBCU’s Baggage, which is currently airing on GSN, has been cleared in 95% of the country. The series will debut daily across the country on September 17th. Baggage previously aired a ten week-ten market test run across the country last year to some success. Ratings improved by an average of 26% in women 18-34, 18% in women 18-49, 21% in women 25-54, 39% in men 18-34 and by 31% in adults 18-34.
“The concept that every dater has hidden baggage—small, medium and large—has struck a chord with GSN’s viewers,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP, programming and development. “Its pop cultural relevance has made Baggage a top performer, and we are excited to partner with NBCUniversal Domestic Television to bring this buzzy show to a new audience.”
Stations airing Baggage include WPIX New York, WCIU Chicago, WPHL Philadelphia, WLVI Boston, WATL Atlanta, WKCF Orlando, WSTR Cincinnati, WNUV Baltimore and WTTE Columbus, Ohio. If it shows up in your market, let us know. I know we’ve got a lot of people looking forward to this, so hopefully you won’t be in that 5%.
