Hawaii Five-O Says Adios to CBS… Aloha TNT

Wow… I’m amazed CBS would allow a show that is on fire like Hawaii Five-0 slip away to another network!

Hawaii Five-0

CBS Television Distribution has sold rookie drama Hawaii Five-0 to cable net TNT.

The market for the show was opened by a preemptive bid by an unidentified cable network, which immediately set prices at $2-plus million per episode. In the end, Hawaii Five-0 sold in the mid-$2 million range, on par with what two of the last big dramas – Warner Bros’ The Mentalist and CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles – each received.

The off-net deal begins on TNT in fall 2014. The deal also includes digital rights so that TNT can provide the show on demand and online to its subscribers via Time Warner’s TV Everywhere initiative.

  1. Five-0 is not leaving CBS. TNT bought the syndication rights; the repeats. Which TNT can start airing in 2014.
