Live From Daryl's House Coming To TV.


After four years as a much-loved monthly webcast, Live From Daryl's House is coming to broadcast TV.

The award-winning music, cooking and conversation program will make its premiere in 95 markets tonight with two back-to-back half-hour episodes featuring Fitz and The Tantrums and Train.

Live From Daryl's House is being syndicated by Good Cop Bad Cop Productions and will mark "the first full-length music Web show to successfully cross over into the television syndication marketplace."

Aside from switching from flip cam filming to High-Def Hall has promised not to change anything about the show and says that it will continue to be an internet show being shown on TV and that he will not be adapting the show in any way to make it more like a "TV" show.

Live From Daryl's House began airing in November 2007 from Hall's home studio in upstate New York and guests so far have have included John Rzeznik, Todd Rundgren, Dave Stewart, Nick Lowe, Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger, Smokey Robinson, and Jose Feliciano. Daryl and his band play his guests' songs, his guests play Hall's songs, they cook, they drink, and they tell stories. I am hooked.

Live from Daryl’s House has been cleared in nearly 80% of U.S. homes in the nation’s top 200 media markets, as well as all of the top 10, including New York (WPIX), L.A. (KTLA), Chicago (WGN), Dallas (KDAF) and Houston (KIAH). The show has also cleared in such key markets as Philadelphia (CBS-owned KYW), Boston (KBIN) and Atlanta (WATL), and is set to premiere on a number of NBC, Fox and CBS-owned affiliates across the country. Most stations will air a full hour with two original shows back to back on Saturday nights.
