New entries into the top programs by ad spend included TBS’ "Family Guy" and the PGA Tour on Golf. TBS is hoping to further capitalize on "Family Guy" by creating original, animated series "Neighbors from Hell" to complement it. The series, from 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks, is about a surburban family literally from hell. It’ll debut next year. Once again movies and acquired dramas, such as USA’s "NCIS," performed well.
