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!
