TMZ is a syndication hit


The early success of “TMZ,” a new syndicated television show based on the popular Web site of the same name, illustrates just how valuable the celebrity news niche has become. 

The show, a half-hour of celebrity scandal, had its premiere on Sept. 10. By the end of the month, it was the top-rated new show in syndication by a wide margin, delivering a 1.7 household rating, or about two million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Among other syndicated series with premieres this fall, “The Steve Wilkos Show” averaging half as many households, is its nearest rival.
