Mid-Season:

Additionally, the network announced the pick-up of four shows for mid-season, including the returning sitcom The King of Queens as well as two new dramas and one new comedy. They include 3 Lbs, starring Stanley Tucci in a medical drama about New York neurosurgeons; Waterfront, a drama about a colorful mayor in Providence, R.I. starring Joe Pantoliano; and Rules of Engagement, a comedy starring Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld) from Adam Sandler's production company that follows two couples and a single guy as they navigate the jungles of dating, engagement and marriage.

Charles in Charge is coming to E!...well not exactly, but they have an all-new episode of The E! True Hollywood Story featuring this sitcom! In Charles in Charge: The E! True Hollywood Story, E! will bring you the drama behind the comedy about a lovable American family. Catch up with the cast, and find out who had crushes on whom, onstage and off.
The sitcom first blasted onto CBS in 1984. After one year, the network pulled the plug, but Charles would return. When the show entered syndication in early 1987, heartthrobs Scott Baio (Happy Days) and Willie Aames (Eight Is Enough) formed part of a new family, embroiled in issues that snared teens, parents and young adults. Plus, it was funny. Charles was back and here to stay.
E! now reveals the Story left untold. Learn what almost left the sexy Nicole Eggert (Baywatch) paralyzed for good, and go inside Josie Davis' struggle to grow up on TV and in real life. And what about the long list of Hollywood babes who wanted Charles to be in charge of their hearts?
Tune in SUNDAY, MAY 21 from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET/PT only on E!

As for Nick@Nite, they will be making some changes starting Memorial Day. Mad About You looks like did poorly, and will be sent to just overnight at 2 a.m. The changes are minor, but you will get even more Fresh Prince and Roseanne! They have also scheduled a Fresh Prince all-night marathon during Memorial Day Weekend, of course this follows the all-week all-night marathon of Fresh Prince just prior to that. Yes, it is true, even though I'm being sarcastic. You can view the line-up changes and details on the Memorial Day weekend marathon here.
As for TV Land, they made schedule changes yesterday and we relayed them to you, and today they cut the 48 hour marathons in June to only 6pm-6am on both days. So what will air 6am-6pm on weekends then? Why of course Bonanza and Gunsmoke non-stop. You thought they forgot about them, didn't you? So, the Sanford & Son, All in the Family and Three's Company marathons in June will only be 6pm-6am for those two nights. Details are here.
We still don't have TV Land July, so keep coming back for that. We have a lot of stories coming for the rest of the week in addition to the upfront line-ups, so come on back! Even some DVD news.
