Nick at Nite June Highlights; MyNetwork TV Upfront

Nick at Nite has finally released its plans for June. No regular changes will be made...at least not yet, of course. They will have a Father's Day marathon on Father's Day evening (June 18) from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. featuring TV dads such as Dr. Cliff Huxtable and Danny Tanner. Shows featured are The Cosby Show, Full House, Fresh Prince, Roseanne and even America's Funniest Home Videos.
And if you haven't had enough Fresh Prince yet, then think again because Nick at Nite will showcase another "wall to wall" marathon the week of June 25-July 1, featuring nothing but Fresh Prince from 9:30pm-5am. That is over 100 episodes! Nick at Nite will also premiere the classic movie Grease in early July. More details on that soon, but for now head on over to the June highlights thread to read more and to discuss your thoughts.

MyNetwork TV had their upfront (I'm serious), and they announced their fall schedule. They will be getting rid of their low rated dramas and replacing them with cheap reality series, which have faired much better for them. They will also bring back the specials they have produced along with more movies on Thursdays and Fridays, which also have done pretty well for them. IFL Battleground will return as well on Mondays. To see their line-up for the fall, click HERE. On that same link, on the second post in that thread, I have my opinions on what MyNetwork TV should do. I say ditch the reality (or at least make them once a week at most), and bring back classic programming that works. How about encores of The Simpsons, which is Fox owned or maybe one of the best shows on Fox ever in Married...with Children. They could even bring back classic 20th TV programming like The X-Files, Ally McBeal, 21 Jump Street, Doogie Howser, Mr. Belvedere, Small Wonder, the list goes on and on. They would do so much better. And why Fox shows, because MyNetwork TV is owned by Fox. corp. You can discuss your thoughts on what I think on that same thread. I would like to hear your thoughts!
