TV Land May 2010 Schedule; Just My Show's New Podcast Features Growing Pains and Just the Ten of Us Star

We finally bring you the TV Land May 2010 schedule! We kept delaying it because of various changes. But now we can bring it to you! The regular schedule will have some changes, but not much. Starting April 26, The Cosby Show returns to primetime, airing weeknights in the 8pm hour, replacing Home Improvement, which will move to the 2am hour. That's not all the bad news for Home Improvement, its Saturday evening block from 7-9pm will also be replaced. They will add a block of The Andy Griffith Show from 6-8pm on Saturdays, while Everybody Loves Raymond moves to 8pm-12am instead of 9pm-1am. Also, starting Sunday, May 9, Everybody Loves Raymond gets a Sunday block as well, airing Sundays 10pm-12am. Everything else will remain the same as it is now.
Not sure if this makes any sense, since Tim Allen is hosting the TV Land Awards on Sunday and the very next day Home Improvement moves to late nights?
As for highlights, notoriously uncensored gossip diva Joan Rivers stars in TV Land's PRIME original series, How'd You Get So Rich?. Joan Rivers takes viewers on a journey to meet mega-rich millionaires who worked hard and struck gold once again. As she tours the most lavish and extravagant homes, she introduces viewers to folks who made a lot of money in out of the ordinary, fascinating ways and asks all the questions no one else would - in the way only Joan can. The second season starts Wednesday, May 5 at 10pm and will run though Wednesday, June 9.
Stunts for May 2010 include a Roseanne "Rags to Riches" marathon on Sunday, May 2 from 10pm-2am and an Everybody Loves Raymond Mother's Day marathon on Saturday, May 8 from 8pm-12am. Don't miss this four-hour Everybody Loves Raymond marathon saluting the mother of all mothers, Marie Barone. During these eight Marie-centric episodes, watch her love, cuddle, smother, advise, cajole, and irritate the whole family in her own benevolent and meddling way! And finally on Memorial Day, (Monday, May 31) spend the day with two classic marathons and a classic film! Airing from 9am-4pm spend the day in the sun with Bewitched! Then head on to the junkyard for Sanford & Son from 4pm-7pm. Capping the day will be the movie Sister Act starting at 7pm.
And speaking of movies, TV Land will premiere Sister Act, Ghostbusters, and Mystic Pizza on their Friday night movie block, while encoring films such as The Fugitive.
View the complete TV Land May 2010 schedule and highlights. And stay with us very soon for TV Land June! Will The Brady Bunch be renewed, as its contract is up after the end of May? You'll find out soon!
