Minor WGN America Retro Night Changes, More Cosby Show; Tad More Hallmark Channel Sked Changes

WGN America is making a few minor changes to its Sunday night block Outta Sight Retro Night starting Sunday (Feb. 14, 2010). Basically another hour of The Cosby Show is added to late night. Becker's late night hour moves from 2am ET to 12am ET, replacing the second hour of Newhart. Newhart will still remain in the 8pm ET hour. The Cosby Show will get another hour, now in the 2am ET hour. This is in addition to its already scheduled hours at 7pm ET and 3am ET, so yes, three hours of The Cosby Show on Sunday nights. Perhaps it is holding a slot for something else for the future?
So, if you're confused, here is how Sunday nights will look now: 6pm ET Becker, 7pm ET The Cosby Show, 8pm ET Newhart, 9pm ET Barney Miller, 10pm ET News, 11pm ET Cheers, 12am ET Becker, 1am ET Barney Miller, 2am ET The Cosby Show, and 3am ET more The Cosby Show.
As usual, stay with us for any further WGN America updates!

It was just last week when we told you about the tons of schedule changes to Hallmark Channel, now a little bit more are happening! Beginning tonight (Monday, February 8, 2010) Monday-Thursday from 9-11pm will now be a movie instead of Touched By An Angel, but Touched will still air at 8pm and also gain the 7pm hour replacing one of the three 7th Heaven hours starting tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010). 7th Heaven will remain at 5pm and 6pm. Everything else is the same as we relayed last week.
