TV Land Adds Morning Marathons; ION Delays Emeril Lagasse Show

TV Land is adding morning marathons to weekdays beginning next week (Feb. 22). As of now, the marathons are only set for the next two weeks -- week of Feb. 22 and March 1. But I'm sure they will be extended into March as well, but it isn't official. The next two Mondays (Feb. 22/March 1) will have a marathon of Leave it to Beaver from 9am-1pm. Then on Tuesday, there will be a Beverly Hillbillies marathon on Feb. 23 and Sanford & Son on March 2, both from 9am-1pm. On Wednesday, there will be a Sanford & Son marathon on Feb. 24 from 9am-12pm, but on March 3 the previously scheduled marathon of High School Reunion will remain as the season finale is later that night. On Thursday, Hogan's Heroes takes the morning from 9am-1pm on both Feb. 25 and March 4. And finally on Friday, we have a mixed bag on both Feb. 26 and March 5. Leave it to Beaver kicks it off in the 9am half-hour, followed by Gunsmoke at 9:30am and then it is Bonanza until 5pm.
This means the current weekday 9am-1pm block of Leave it to Beaver, back-to-back Beverly Hillbillies, single All in the Family, back-to-back Sanford & Son and Hogan's Heroes are not airing in their normal slots for these two weeks (and beyond I bet). Stay with us for details.
And also of note, the Bewitched launch on Sunday (Feb. 28) has a time change now, it will be 11am-2pm instead. The series still joins the weekday schedule the next day (March 1) in the 5pm hour.
View the updated TV Land February 2010 schedule with these changes. And also view the updated TV Land March 2010 schedule with these changes. Look under the one-time-only adjustments section.

ION Television was set to launch The Emeril Lagasse Show on Sunday, March 28 airing Sundays at 8pm, but they just announced it has been delayed. We are not sure if the delay is only a week or a bit longer. Of course as soon as know, we will let you know. Whenever it launches, it will feature one of America's most popular chefs as he has never been seen before. Each week, Emeril will welcome celebrity guests, musicians and entertainers to break news and break bread as Emeril shares his world, his friends and his passions with the studio audience and viewers at home.
Instead on Sunday, March 28, ION will air back-to-back airings of the big screen movie I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007) from 4pm-6:30pm and 6:30pm-9pm. The TV series Shark follows in its normal Sunday slots of 9pm and 10pm. An hour of M*A*S*H will kick off the block from 3-4pm. In other ION Television changes, they have added the premiere of the big screen movie Daredevil (2003) starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner for Saturday, March 27 at 7pm. The movie replaces an immediate encore of spin-off movie Elektra (2005) starring Jennifer Garner, which will remain airing at 5pm that night.
