TV Land Updates June 2009 Schedule; TV Land July 2009 News; Susan Olsen's New Book and Website

The original TV Land June 2009 schedule that we gave you previously is now being changed due to the last minute changes that happened in May. So TV Land will not return Scrubs and 3rd Rock from the Sun after all in June. The changes that started in mid-May will continue in June (including off-the-clock programming) but two things: Married with Children is not on Thursdays because of She's Got the Look and the TV Land PRIME movie will return to Fridays at 10.
View the complete updated TV Land June 2009 schedule.

Moving on to TV Land July 2009, the schedule for June will spill into July as well...but with one thing removed: off-the-clock programming. It seems everything will be back to normal times starting the week of June 29, but of course that can change.
As for July highlights, season 2 of She's Got the Look continues to air Thursdays at 9pm on TV Land PRIME. They're back again... and this time the stakes are bigger and better as 12 gorgeous women 35-and-over grace TV Land PRIME in season 2 of the modeling competition series that's like no other...She's Got the Look! For one very lucky winner, a second chance for a supermodel career, a life changing contract with the world famous Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, and a spread in Self magazine awaits. Watch the nationwide search, follow the drama as the number of contestants dwindles, and root for your favorite to win it all. Join in on the fun on a new night and time starting Thursday June 11, 2009 at 9pm for eight straight weeks through July 30.
This 4th of July, spend your evening with Roseanne! It's the Roseanne "4th of July Feuds & Fireworks" marathon! Spend 4th of July with Roseanne and you'll get different types of fireworks on this 4th of July weekend. The fireworks begin Saturday, July 4 at 8pm to 6am and the same on Sunday, July 5.
For the first time ever, TV Land will broadcast a new AFI Life Achievment Award special. The 37th AFI Life Achievement Award, the highest honor for a career in film, which will be presented to Michael Douglas at a gala tribute in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 11, 2009. The program will air Sunday, July 19, 2009 from 9pm-10:30pm on TV Land PRIME.
TV Land PRIME movies on Friday nights includes encores of National Lampoon's Vacation Movie, National Lampoon's European Vacation, Another 48 Hours, and Doc Hollywood. Meanwhile, TV Land will premiere the movie Born on the 4th of July on Friday, July 3 from 12pm-3pm with an encore on Sunday, July 5 from 9am-12pm. Other than all this, it is a quiet July for TV Land with no regular schedule changes...as of now, that is.
