Nick@Nite Loves 'Roseanne' Even More; More on i network's Warner Bros. Deal

Are you a Roseanne fan? I hope you are because Monday and Thursday nights will be all Roseanne basically on Nick@Nite. Starting tomorrow the 11:30 p.m. slot of The Cosby Show will be Roseanne on Monday and Thursday, the other nights it still will be Cosby Show. So, this now means you can watch Roseanne non-stop from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on these two nights. This change will last until July 17, which is when Nick@Nite's annual summer marathons start. Nick@Nite July discussion is here.

Yesterday we mentioned at least 10 Warner Bros. owned series coming to the i Network (AKA: PAX TV). Today we have learned that there will be at least a dozen series...in fact it is a little over a dozen. I don't know the remaining shows, Warner Bros./i network will not reveal those. At launch time this August, the 10 initial series mentioned will not all premiere. I'm guessing two or three will be left off the line-up for a later date. What about the time periods? Initially it looks like the i Network will air the classic series from 6 to 11 p.m. weekdays. I guess if the ratings are good they will finally cut back on paid programming, which airs 12am-6pm, and expand the hours. The Warner Bros. owned movies will air on weekends in primetime. They will release the launch schedule for these Warner Bros. shows in about two weeks (mid-July)--and we will be the first ones I'm sure letting you know. So, come on back...but also head on over to our message board where it seems this story has been the talk of the town!
