KDVR clears the entire Fox network schedule (nightly prime time, Saturday late night, and Fox Sports programming, along with the network’s Saturday morning infomercial block, Weekend Marketplace and the political talk show Fox News Sunday). Syndicated programs broadcast by KDVR include Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy!, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Judge Judy and The Simpsons (which also airs first run episodes). In addition, the station produces Everyday, an hour-long lifestyle program which originated as an afternoon program on sister station KWGN in 2008 as Everyday with Libby and Natalie (then hosted by evening anchor Libby Weaver and reporter Natalie Tysdal); the program moved to KDVR on March 1, 2010, effectively moving to late mornings with the move.
On August 7, 2014, KDVR entered into a partnership with the Denver Broncos to broadcast head coach John Fox’s weekly analysis show (which had been airing on KMGH-TV as The John Fox Show since 2012); the program, which moved to KDVR under the new title Fox on Fox on September 5 (preempting the second half-hour of the 9:00 p.m. newscast on Fridays), is hosted by sports director Nick Griffith.
In late August 2014, KDVR acquired the Sony game shows Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune to premiere on September 8 of that year after they moved from their longtime home of KMGH due to Scripps (KMGH’s owner) continually removing the shows from their stations throughout the country for lower-cost internally produced programming and local newscasts. The two game shows displaced the longtime hour of The Simpsons leading into prime time to after KDVR’s 10 p.m. news.
KDVR is one of the eight Fox affiliates in the United States to air both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune; the others are in Baltimore; Syracuse, New York; Cincinnati; Green Bay, Wisconsin; New Orleans; Lake Charles, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama.
