The CW Picks Up New Sitcom, Fox Alters 'Loop' Schedule; Growing Pains Not on The N Next Week; GSN Honors Charles Nelson Reilly

The CW has picked up an additional sitcom for mid-season. The ensemble single-camera sitcom titled Eight Days a Week co-starring Christina Milian and Mario Lopez, centers on four twenty-somethings who work under the top movers and shakers in New York City.
Meanwhile Fox has altered the schedule for The Loop because new reality series On the Lot has been a big dud. On the Lot will now only air once a week from 8-9pm on Tuesdays, thus The Loop will now only air Sundays, but three times a night on June 24 and July 1 at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. ET. That is 6 episodes right there. The other four remaining episodes will be airing Sunday, June 10 and 17 at 8:30 and 9:30. Confusing! Replacing On the Lot's Monday slot will be animated encores. You will see The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad mixed in the 8pm hour.

Growing Pains will not be on The N after this week, as of now. The channel announced that Sabrina, the Teenage Witch will return to its regular 12-1am slot next week and also have a mini-marathon on Monday night from 12-6am and airing 12-3am and 4-5am the rest of the week.

Charles Nelson Reilly, the celebrated stage, screen and television star, will be honored by GSN on Saturday, June 2 for his work as one of the most beloved celebrity game show panelists ever to grace the small screen. In honor of Reilly's work, GSN is devoting its programming from 9AM to 7PM ET on Saturday, June 2 to the best Reilly starring episodes of Match Game.
Immediately following the Match Game marathon, GSN's original documentary The Real Match Game Story: Behind the Blank airs from 7PM to 8PM ET.
Additionally, on Sunday night (Monday morning) June 3, GSN will air two classic episodes of his early work on What's My Line? from 1964 at 3:00AM ET and I've Got A Secret from 1972 at 3:30 AM ET.
