TV Land Edits January 2010 Schedule A Bit; 16th Annual SAG Awards Nominations

Earlier this month we gave you TV Land's January 2010 schedule, but now some changes to that have been made. First off the shifting of Andy Griffith, All in the Family, Sanford & Son, and more Andy will not be shifting to 4-8pm after all starting Jan. 4. They will remain from 5-9pm. That means Home Improvement will not air Mon-Sat in the 8pm hour starting Jan. 11. Home Improvement will air Mon-Thurs from 9-10pm starting Jan. 11, except Wednesdays will be Married...with Children. And Married will move to the 10pm hour except on Wednesdays will be High School Reunion. This means the primetime marathon block that airs Mon-Thurs from 10pm-12am will now be removed. Roseanne will take over the 11pm hour. Married...with Children will now get late night encores starting Jan. 4. airing Mon-Thurs in the 1am hour replacing Roseanne. And the week of Jan. 4, when Home Improvement has its launch marathon (8-11pm each night), Married...with Children will air at a special time of 5-6pm that week, while encoring in the 1am hour.
Home Improvement will also air Saturdays 8-10pm following the weekly Married...with Children marathon. Home will also air Sunday nights 2-3am, as previously reported.
