 E! WILL ADD NEW WEEKLY SERIES 'ON CABLE' TO PROGRAMMING LINEUP
 IN JUNE; BASIC, PAY, AND PAY-PER-VIEW OFFERINGS WILL BE FEATURED
 DALLAS, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Cable television offers viewers high quality original programming choices, and E! Entertainment Television will highlight the best of them in a new weekly series, "On Cable," announced Deborah Adler Myers, vice president, production and development. Hosted by Suzanne Vafiadis, "On Cable" will premiere the first week in June. The kaleidoscopic 30-minute show will present programming excerpts and scheduling information, supplemented with colorful or useful facts about the programs and their stars.
 "On Cable" will be organized according to programming genre, with separate segments showcasing current movies, sports, comedy, music, cultural and arts programming, children's programming, and documentary/news/information. The series will cover basic and pay television offerings, as well as pay-per-view events.
 Among the networks that will be featured are Showtime, The Disney Channel, HBO, American Movie Classics, The Family Channel, Lifetime, Comedy Central, The Discovery Channel, Turner Broadcasting System, The Nashville Network, Cinemax, Nickelodeon, TNT, MTV, VH-1, ESPN, Arts & Entertainment, USA Network and E!.
 "Cable's programming has become so varied and so excellent that it deserves a show all its own," said Myers. "The weekly series is laid out so that viewers can get a taste of each offering. We believe 'On Cable' will increase cable viewership."
 E! Entertainment Television is a 24-hour basic cable network that presents popular entertainment news and features, centered on today's top celebrities of movies, television and music. The network is currently offered to 20 million subscribers on 800 cable systems.
