AmericanLife TV March Highlights; Mary Tyler Moore Show, Zach Braff News

AmericanLife TV Network, the only independent network devoted to the Baby Boomer generation, continues its special salute to the classic '60s spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. in March, with three more exciting two-hour movies, including one with guest star Joan Crawford, plus encore showings of the series’ original pilot film.
Also in March, AmericanLife TV presents the final and first episodes of China Beach, starring Dana Delany, and two clip specials from the Welcome Back, Kotter archives, featuring John Travolta and his fellow Sweathogs.
Other highlights include Brandon Cruz of The Courtship of Eddie's Father guest starring on a memorable Kung Fu episode; classic 70s sitcom stars Howard Hesseman and Linda Lavin on separate Harry O episodes; Edward Platt of Get Smart on Surfside 6; and it is a Carradine reunion on a special Kung Fu episode.
It looks to be another exciting month on one of the best classic TV channels. I promise this channel doesn't do last minute schedule changes! Click HERE to view the full highlights!

We have some sitcom related stories, that are more gossipy than hard news, but I found them funny and interesting. A man was found sleeping in a bedroom of the Minneapolis house made famous in the TV sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
A cleaning crew saw the smashed doors and called police, who came and arrested the 24-year-old man Saturday.
Police say nothing was taken from the house but three glass doors were smashed, including a custom-made stained glass panel.
Homeowner Don Gerlach says the suspect told him he was drunk and that his friends put him up to it.
The front of the house was shown in the opening credits for The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Tourists often stop by to look at it.
The house is for sale for more than $3.6 million.

Is Zach Braff about to be one of the highest paid TV actor? If his TV series Scrubs is renewed for another season (whether it be NBC or ABC), it might happen. Sources say if the series returns, he will get about $350,000 an episode for the 7th season of the show. Wow...not Friends type money, but still amazing. Charlie Sheen of Two and a Half Men also gets around $350,000 per episode.
