first-run syndication
TV Tropes; Wikipedia

"Syndication" can refer to reruns of shows that originally aired on broadcast networks (or in other countries), something that's particularly common on PBS, as well as BBC America (and really, pretty much any cable network). But on this page I'm going to try to stick to shows that originally aired in syndication, and not on any particular network (nor produced by any particular company). This may get a bit tricky, but I'll do my best.
