Lifetime Edits March Schedule Before It Even Begins; Recapping Last Night's SAG Awards

Lifetime TV has already changed some of their March line-up before it even started. Frasier joins the line-up March 6 and it was supposed to air weekdays at 6p, 6:30p, 11:30p and 12:30a, but now they have changed it to 1p, 1:30p, 11p, and 11:30p. The full updated schedule is here, and includes the addition of Kate & Allie --no, I'm just kidding about that show (I wish I wasn't!)! No other new shows will join the line-up in March, but we can expect Reba in August and Still Standing in September. They are no Kate & Allie that's for sure.

ABC's Desperate Housewives and Lost were two of the big TV winners last night at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. The awards were handed out last night at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center, and the ceremony was aired simultaneously on TNT and TBS starting at 8 p.m. ET.
