TV Land June 2010 Has Hot in Cleveland, But No Brady Bunch; An Interview with Mayim Bialik, Who Is On Big Bang Tonight

Now that upfronts are over, we will bring you back news we delayed. TV Land June 2010 is one of those items we delayed. But not to fret, we will give that to you TODAY! TV Land will be making some schedule changes, too. Starting Tuesday, June 1, the morning marathons from 9am-1pm will be removed and an hour of the morning paid programming will also be removed! The 8am hour will now be Boston Legal from Tues-Fri instead of Paid Programming. Then a sitcom block will air from 9am-12pm with an episode of All in the Family and two episodes of each of Good Times and Sanford & Son. There will be extra commercials, so that is why a 30 minute slot is missing. The Brady Bunch was NOT renewed and thus it is off the schedule, as it was airing Thursdays 9am-1pm. Catch its last airing on TV Land this Thursday. At 12pm will now be Gunsmoke, followed by a Bonanza block from 1pm-5pm. On Mondays, movies will air from 8am-12pm, with Bonanza airing 12pm-5pm. And the rest of the changes are in the overnight, with Cosby Show listed from 1am-2:30am, but due to extra commercials it is just 2 episodes. Home Improvement will air two episodes at 2:30am and 3am, while Three's Company gets three from 3:30am-5am. M*A*S*H returns to the 5am hour replacing Boston Legal.
As for the month's highlights, the season finale of How'd You Get So Rich airs Wednesday, June 9 at 10 p.m. The following week (Wednesday, June 16 at 10) has the premiere of sitcom Hot in Cleveland. The sitcom revolves around three fabulous L.A. women of a certain age who are best friends (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick, and Betty White). Their lives are changed forever when their plane – headed for Paris – unexpectedly lands in Cleveland and they soon rediscover themselves in a new "promised land." Loving their new home, the women find themselves living under one roof and battling the sassy caretaker of the property they have rented, played by the inimitable Betty White.
On Wednesday, June 16 at 10:30pm there will be a special. The third season (6 episodes) of TV Land's hit original series She's Got The Look returns Wednesday, August 25 to discover the next supermodel over the age of 35. But before that happens, get a preview of what is to come in season three airs after the premiere of TV Land's first original sitcom--Hot in Cleveland! It's the only airing, so watch it.
On Saturday, June 26 from 9pm-10:30pm, TV Land presents The 38th AFI Life Achievement Award to Mike Nichols, adding yet another high honor to the hefty resume of the award-winning writer, producer and director. Past honorees include Michael Douglas, Meryl Streep and Al Pacino. The AFI Life Achievement award was established in 1973 to honor an individual whose career in motion pictures or TV has greatly contributed to the enrichment of American culture. The criteria state that "the recipient should be one whose talent has in a fundamental way advanced the film art; whose accomplishment has been acknowledged by scholars, critics, professional peers and the general public; and whose work has stood the test of time."
TV Land Monday Movie premieres for June 2010 are 48 Hours, Roxanne, Naked Gun, Beverly Hills Cop III, and Stand By Me. Encore movies this month are Ghostbusters and Another 48 Hours.
View the COMPLETE schedule and information on TV Land June 2010. And we promise TV Land July will come sooner, maybe even this week...stay with us! One question we will answer is...will Good Times return (its contract expires at the end of June)?

Our pal Chris Mann of Retroality.tv has posted a new interview on his groovy website! Chris has posted an interview with Mayim Bialik of Blossom fame (the '90s sitcom) in connection with her appearance on the season finale of the sitcom The Big Bang Theory airing tonight on CBS. She previews her character/episode and talks about Blossom of course, SNL's spoof of her and her show in the '90s, her return to Hollywood and much more! Chris also mentions of the sort of Blossom reunion on 'Til Death earlier this month (that was watched by only less than 2 million people).
View this very interesting interview with Mayim Bialik. Chris does a wonderful job once again, like usual!
