Boy will still air weekday mornings at 8 & 8:30 a.m. We will keep you up to date of any other news and changes.
Meanwhile, TV Land has announced it has moved the Ghostbusters 2 encore from 12:30am Friday to 12 noon Saturday. Ghostbusters 2 will still premiere 10 p.m. on Friday and will be followed by I Pity the Fool and 5 Benson episodes.
