Centric Adds A-Team, Proud Family Weekend Stunts; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of March 15, 2010)

Centric (formerly known as BET Jazz) has added two weekend stunts for the next two weekends. First, they will add another A-Team weekend stunt. It looks like the action series is doing well on the network. The A-Team airs regularly weekdays at 7am and 9pm ET, as we announced a few weeks back. The weekend stunt will air this Saturday (March 13, 2010) from 12pm-6pm and if you miss it, it will air again on Sunday (March 14) from 9am-3pm.
The following weekend (March 20-21), Centric will air a block of the animated comedy The Proud Family! That series has aired on and off on sister network BET since January 2009. The series is actually a Disney Channel original and aired on Disney from 2001-2005. Anyway, Centric doesn't air the series as a regular, so this is indeed a special marathon. The stunt will air Saturday, March 20 from 12pm-6pm and again Sunday, March 21 from 9am-3pm. Stay with us if they ever add any regular airings for this show, but for now enjoy this special stunt!

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
For the week of March 15-19, 2010, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
