ION Adds Mr. Cooper in July Now; Three Stooges Minisodes Added

A few weeks ago we gave you details on ION Television's July 2008 schedule and no changes were being made to the line-up...now ION has made a change. Effective Monday, July 7 at 5:00pm & 5:30pm ET/PT, ION will add Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, replacing The Wayans Bros. ION was going to start Mr. Cooper in the fall in that slot but decided to launch it two months earlier than planned.
Last time I mentioned The Drew Carey Show would air after a Thursday movie on July 3 at 10:30pm, now that has been moved to July 17 at 10:30pm. The Drew Carey Show is slated to return to the ION regular line-up this fall airing at 6pm, leading into M*A*S*H at 6:30pm.
Everything else we mentioned last time is the same...so no other changes to July.
Discuss ION July on our message boards. We still hope to have our interview with them soon...I promise it will come, but ION seems to be very busy.

Sony TV's newly revamped multi-platform network brings you the shows you love, only shorter! The Minisode Network offers 5-minute adaptations of favorite television shows that retain the full story arc of the episode. On June 17, today, the network will be launching minisodes of The Three Stooges.
