TV Land March Highlights, Includes Three's Company Mini Marathon and To Be Continued Free Fridays; Mary Tyler Moore Show Reunion at SAG Awads

It was only yesterday we released the February schedule for TV Land (we've had it posted in our message board for a while but was waiting for official confirmation to post it here), and today TV Land has officially released the March 2007 schedule. We mentioned yesterday that The Munsters and The Addams Family are coming back to TV Land in March and today that is official! The Munsters will air weekdays at 11am and weekends at 8:30am, while The Addams Family will air weekdays at 12 noon. Weekend mornings will see an extreme makeover, with westerns ruling the mornings now, too. The westerns (Bonanza, Gunsmoke) will air weekends from 6am-8pm, except the 8am hour which will have Flip Wilson & The Munsters. Gone from weekend mornings and the schedule completely are Cheers, 227, Benson, Wings, Night Court, and Highway to Heaven. TV Land has released the contracts reportedly for 227 and Benson, both were set to expire in May 2008, but they have switched that for The Munsters and The Addams Family from The Program Exchange.
Among the highlights include Sit Down Comedy with David Steinberg season two continuing all month long; To Be Continued Fridays, catch multiple part episodes back-to-back just like a movie, shows like The Jeffersons & Brady Bunch in Hawaii, and more! Finally, the monthly mini-marathon for March is Three's Company! Catch Jack enter a bake-off, meeting Cindy for the first time, and more!

Mary Tyler Moore, Ed Asner, Georgia Engel, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Gavin MacLeod and Betty White are all scheduled to be on hand for the Jan. 28 ceremonies at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center. Dick Van Dyke is also scheduled to be in attendance, so it will also be a reunion of the two main stars of The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Frankie is completely gobsmacked when Mike’s brother Rusty (Norm Macdonald) pays an unexpected visit and offers him an opportunity to partner on one of his crazy business ideas — and Mike wants in. Meanwhile, Axl goes to extreme measures to prove to Mike that he can handle riding his dad’s new motorcycle; and unbeknownst to her parents, Sue tells Brad that her college roommate is so horrible that she’s resorted to living in her car.<> black-ish - "Churched" (ABC, 8:30PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
In the Johnson home, Sundays involve SAT prep and sports, so when the family is invited to Church on Sunday by the neighbors, Dre goes against his instinct of always saying “no” and agrees.

Meanwhile, Jack and Diane find out they were never baptized, and take it upon themselves to do whatever they want.

Alexis is convinced that Buck is to blame for Miles’ new, impulsive attitude after she catches him attempting a risky stunt for his YouTube channel.

Buck, Miles, Tia and Maizy seek revenge and end up in a prank war.

Uncle Buck - "I Got This" (ABC, 9:30PM ET/PT)
Buck and his buddy Cy have a tradition of watching the Bulls games on TV together with Buck’s lucky basketball beside them (or the Bulls lose).
