What I Like About You Joins The N in January 2009; More RTN Affiliates Added

The N has released their January schedule and it will have a new sitcom added. Starring Amanda Bynes, What I Like About You joins The N with a 24-hour premiere marathon that begins on Thursday, January 1, 2009 at 12:00pm ET/PT (First 49 episodes, except #9 will air in the marathon). When her widowed father moves to Japan, Holly (Amanda Bynes) is forced to move in with her straight-laced older sister Valerie (Jennie Garth), who's a promising public relations upstart living in Manhattan. It's not long before Holly's antics turn Valerie's regimented life upside down!
And that's not all! The excitement continues all week long with a week of primetime marathons of What I Like About You every night from 8pm-12am ET/PT from Friday, January 2 through Sunday, January 11.
Then the show will join the regular line-up after the 11 days worth of marathons. Beginning Monday, January 12, What I Like About You will air regularly on The N every night at 10pm-12am ET/PT. Among the other changes on The N are now four episodes in a row blocks of your favorite sitcoms from 6pm-6am: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Zoey 101, What I Like About You, That '70s Show, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Moesha...with a mix of Degrassi on weekends.
