Boomerang Fall 2009 Schedule; ION's Durham County

Today's Fall 2009 schedule is...Boomerang! The classic animated series network from Turner Broadcasting. Boomerang airs classic series such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo Where Are You?, Tom & Jerry, Pink Panther, Smurfs, and so much more. I just wish I had this network! They will be adding so many series on their fall schedule, which begins Monday, August 31.
The series joining or returning to the schedule are Valley of the Dinosaurs, Gerald McBoing Boing, Krypto the Superdog, Super Globetrotters, Help! It's the Hair Bear Bunch, Boomerang Zoo, The Adventures of Gulliver, MGM Cartoons, Secret Squirrel, Those Meddling Kids (Josie & the Pussycats, Speed Buggy, Jabber Jaw), Pebbles & Bamm Bamm, 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Scooby-Doo Where Are You?, and The Flintstones Comedy Show.
Unfortunately a few series have to leave as a result. Pound Puppies, Dynomutt, Fantastic Max, Hong Kong Phooey, The Jetsons (80s), Huckleberry Hound, Atom Ant, Thundarr, Centurions, SWAT Kats, and 2 Stupid Dogs will be leaving the schedule.
Among the highlights for September is a Scooby-Doo Labor Day Weekend marathon with Scooby-Doo Where Are You? on Saturday, Sept. 5 from 2-9pm and The New Scooby-Doo Movies on Sunday, Sept. 6. from 2-9pm. Boomerang Theater (Mon-Wed) movies for the month include Popeye the Sailor Meets Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp, I Yabba Dabba Do, and The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones.

We announced ION Television's September 2009 line-up a few weeks back. It included the premiere of original drama Durham County. It will air Mondays at 10PM starting Monday, Sept. 7 with an immediate encore at 11PM, as we stated already. Now ION has announced they will encore the first episode four more times! They will encore the first episodes all that week at 11PM instead of airing paid programming. So you have six chances to watch the premiere episode --during the premiere at 10PM on Sept. 7 or during the five 11PM encores that week (Sept. 7-11) at 11PM. After the premiere week, only the Monday 11PM encore will remain.
Also, ION has launched a multi-tiered, interactive experience website, durhamcountysecrets.com, that introduces users to the show and its cast. Clips, sound bites and photos provide a sneak peek inside the neighborhood where no secret stays buried forever. In addition, users can upload their own secrets, view secrets from others and send them to a friend. Twitter (www.twitter.com/Durham_County) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Durham-Cunty/117054392149) sites are also created so users can discover hidden and locked clips that require a code in order to view.
The award-winning Durham County follows the troubled world of Homicide Detective Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon). Sweeney becomes personally involved in a murder investigation after moving his family to quiet suburbia for a fresh start when his partner is killed and his wife Audrey (Hélène Joy) is diagnosed with breast cancer. Produced by Muse Entertainment and Back Alley Films, the series has received 13 Gemini Award Nominations and five wins.
