Here's a shocker. With the Nets in lockout and YES in need of programming, what's a network to do? More Yankees, of course.
Starting Nov. 14, YES will produce a daily Hot Stove-style show called "Yankees Baseball Daily." The one-hour show will air live in the 7 p.m. time slot from Monday through Thursday. YES will put together a "best of" edition of the show, with clips from earlier in the week, to run on Friday.
The second show YES is planning to launch this month, around Thanksgiving, is called "Yankees All-Access." The show will give a behind-the-scenes look at certain Yankees players. YES is planning six or seven episodes. The Nets and Yankees recently concluded a new local TV rights deal that provides the Nets with a big boost in revenue.
