TV Land's 12-4AM Marathons to Air Through August; More on 'Grey's' Thursdays

Last night TV Land and Nick@Nite started their 12-4AM marathon blocks. We have just learned that TV Land will do the marathons until at least through the end of August. We are not sure about Nick@Nite yet, but I would think it will last until their annual summer block starts (July 17), but for sure they will air these 12-4AM marathons until the end of June. TV Land will expand the 12-4AM marathons to seven days a week starting July 1. Saturdays will go to The Munsters and Sundays will be Leave it to Beaver. Which would mean starting July 3, Night Court would be off the line-up, as 227 takes the afternoon slot and the weekend 12-4AM will have taken the 12:30 am and 3:00 am slots.
You may have tuned in last night to Nick@Nite and/or TV Land and saw that the marathon blocks were airing "off the clock." Well, that is because they are only airing seven airings of these shows. 12-4AM would equal eight airings for a sitcom, but they seem to have added an extra 30 minutes of commercials. For example the 1:00AM "scheduled" Benson episode last night started around 1:15 a.m. Strange, but slick. The Miami Vice block on Fridays will actually be from 12:00AM to 4:30AM, but again an extra 30 minutes of commercials will be squeezed in.
We will have more on TV Land and Nick@Nite very soon as they will be releasing the August highlights--as I said, expect the 12-4AM marathons to continue on TV Land through the end of August.

Yesterday we told you ABC pulled the Thursday Grey's Anatomy slot for June 29, well now they have told us that they will start the Thursday slot on July 6, with a two-hour launch. Repeats of season one are slated. For the time being, the Sunday 10 p.m. slot will remain as well. Grey's Anatomy will officially move to Thursdays at 9 this fall when season three premieres.
