“We’re serious about building networks that can be driven just with advertising support,” said Allen. “This is similar to what we do in syndication, where shows are just advertising supported.”
Among the court shows, Judge Ross, launched three years ago, is the highest-rated in syndication with a season to date average of a .8 in total households. It is cleared in about 80 percent of the U.S.
Entertainment Studios’ other networks include Cars.TV, Comedy.TV and Pets.TV. Allen, who has grown from his roots as a comic into an entrepreneur, currently produces 32 shows for syndication and digital distribution. Allen wholly owns the privately held company.
