ABC Family Schedule Change; Lifetime Schedule Notes

We are back with probably what we do best--schedules! ABC Family Channel has made a last minute schedule change and will bring back Boy Meets World to afternoons starting this Monday (November 20). It will air weekdays at 2 and 2:30 p.m. replacing Step by Step. Step by Step just recently returned to that slot, and it looks like it didn't do too well. Step by Step has always done well for the network and has been on since March 2001 and will continue to air, but now only weekend mornings at 8 and 8:30 a.m. And just to let everyone know, Boy Meets World will also continue to air weekday mornings at 8 and 8:30 a.m.

Yesterday we gave you news on Grey's Anatomy coming to local syndication in fall 2009. We mentioned yesterday and before that Lifetime has bought the reruns also for fall 2009 as a daily strip, but starting this January they will air it weekly. They will air season one episodes. The show will air Sundays at 11 p.m. starting January 7. so, now if you're a new fan, now is the time to catch the steamy and dreamy doctors of Seattle’s Grace Hospital from the beginning!
Other Lifetime notes: Still Standing and Reba looks like did well in their 7-9 p.m. slots that they will air in those slots until at least December 1 every Tues-Fri.
Desperate Housewives and Medium will be switching slots starting the week of December 11, with DH going to Mondays at 7 p.m. and Medium going to Saturdays at 11 p.m.

If we have more news, we will be back. So, check in again.
