The N Changes Its Schedule; WGN America Teams with Michael Winslow Every Wednesday Night

It looks like The N changed their mind for their schedule during the last few weeks before the name change to TeenNick. Full House will remain in the 8pm-10pm slot after all for the weeks of Sept. 14 and 21. In fact, there are a lot of changes to the schedule starting Sept. 14. Full House will no longer air in the 6am hour after this week, as Caitlin's Way takes over in the 6am hour, followed by an hour each of Radio Free Roscoe, True Jackson VP, The Assistants, and drama The Best Years. Then we have two hours each of Degrassi and One on One leading into an hour of True Jackson VP at 3pm. Then two-hour blocks will air for the rest of the day, starting at 4pm with What I Like About You, followed by Zoey 101, Full House, One on One, That '70s Show, What I Like About You, and more Full House. Weekends will be filled with a lot of Degrassi, and shows like True Jackson VP and Zoey 101.
We still don't know yet what the TeenNick schedule will be starting Sept. 28. Will it be the same as when it was known as The N? We shall see. Stay with us! For now view the full schedule for the weeks of Sept. 14 and 21 on The N.

As we mentioned on the WGN America Fall 2009 story, they will have an '80s night on Wednesdays starting TONIGHT. Tonight WGN America will debut "Way Back Wednesday with Winslow," a totally tubular 80's movie night. Each Wednesday, from 8-10pm ET, WGN America will air a 1980's themed movie and will kick off "Way Back Wednesday with Winslow" with Police Academy at 8pm ET.
"Way Back Wednesday with Winslow" will be hosted each week by Michael Winslow who appeared in Police Academy 1-7 (as Sgt. Larvell "Motor Mouth" Jones), Gremlins and Spaceballs, and is known as the "Man of 10,000 sound effects." Winslow and his sound effects will be featured each week in the movie night's open, close, bumps and bridges.
"Way Back Wednesday with Winslow" will feature rad 80's classics including: Caddyshack, National Lampoon's Vacation, National Lampoon's European Vacation, Risky Business, Sixteen Candles, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Poltergeist, Lethal Weapon, Uncle Buck, Mr. Mom, Arthur, The Great Outdoors and Spies Like Us.
