PBS' 'Masterpiece' heads to KOCE-TV on Sundays

Have no fear, Los Angeles area "Masterpiece" fans. You'll still be able to see your favorite mystery.

PBS announced Tuesday that KOCE-TV, the network's Orange County affiliate, will pick up Sunday airings of "Masterpiece" starting with this Sunday's premiere of the acclaimed "Sherlock."

The move comes in the wake of KCET-TV announcing its departure from PBS effective Jan. 1 after battling network officials over dues and other issues. Even before it left the network, KCET had shuffled "Masterpiece" to Thursdays to make way for a Sunday movie night.  

“KOCE-TV is delighted to bring 'Masterpiece' to Los Angeles viewers as the show premieres its 21st-century Sherlock Holmes series this coming Sunday,” KOCE President and Chief Executive Mel Rogers said in a statement. “The iconic 'Masterpiece' series has been a Sunday night mainstay in homes across the country, and we’re delighted to welcome it to its new home in Los Angeles.”

“We are grateful for KOCE-TV’s participation in airing 'Sherlock' on 'Masterpiece Mystery!' as it premieres nationwide this Sunday," said PBS Chief Executive and President Paula Kerger.

Would be nice if KOCE would get its guide data updated to reflect this. TiVo still shows "Favorites" rebroadcasts on Sunday night.
