RTN Salutes Get Smart As New Movie Opens; Classic TV Stars Honored at EMA's Home Entertainment Awards

Retro Television Network in Detroit, Michigan will honor Get Smart this Sunday with two classic episodes. The episodes are airing of course because the new Get Smart movie starring Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway opens in theaters today. RTN in Detroit will run two episodes of Get Smart in primetime at 7:00pm & 7:30pm on Sunday (June 22). It will also be simulcasted on WXYZ, the ABC affiliate in Detroit, preempting ABC network programming for that hour (a repeat of AFV).
RTN in Detroit regularly airs Get Smart weeknights at 11:00pm, but this is huge when two episodes are airing in primetime on ABC Detroit!
We will let you know if any other RTN affiliates are honoring Get Smart with something similar as soon as we know. So you might want to keep checking back here in this spot.

On Tuesday, June 24 in Las Vegas, the EMA Home Media Expo 2008/EMA Home Entertainment Awards will be held. From 9am-5:30pm Exhibits and Conference will be going on and following that will be the Awards Show from 7:30-9pm.
There will be a salute to classic TV stars at the awards. Among the honorees:
Josie Davis - Favorite Television Child Star for Charles in Charge (Arts Alliance America will release the fourth season of Charles in Charge, which starred Scott Baio as a babysitter for the Powell family, on DVD Nov. 18.)
Don Most & Anson Williams - Legendary Television Duo for Happy Days
