AmericanLife Network Fall 2010 Schedule; Hallmark Adds More Who's the Boss

Starting October 1, AmericanLife TV Network will be making drastic changes to its schedule. '70s sitcoms Rhoda and Phyllis will be leaving the line-up, unfortunately. Three courtroom series will join the morning line-up airing weekdays from 9:30am-11am and again from 5:30am-7am. The series are Power of Attorney, Texas Justice and Cristina's Court. Then from 11am-5pm will be a new block titled ALN Today, with original series Kevin McCullough, The Ray Lucia Show, and The Big Biz Show. The Flipper and Beachcombers hour will move from 4pm to 5pm, replacing Rhoda and Phyllis. The ALN lifestyle series will air in the 6pm hour replacing Mission: Impossible, which is also leaving the schedule. At 7pm and 8pm from Mon-Thurs, ALN has acquired dramas The Fall Guy and Chicago Hope, so Sue Thomas F.B.eye is off the line-up as well. Also leaving the line-up are the primetime series St. Elsewhere, L.A. Law, and Hill Street Blues. Weeknights at 9pm will be another hour of Flipper and Beachcombers. Then at 10pm & 11pm from Mon-Thurs will be encores of The Fall Guy and Chicago Hope. MGM movies will air on Fridays during all of the times for The Fall Guy and Chicago Hope. Weeknights at 12am will be a MGM movie.
On weekends there aren't any series airing except the court series in mornings (early Sunday morning from 5:30am-7am and 10:30am-12pm. The ALN R2G Movie airs Saturdays in primetime at 8pm and again at 1am. Other movie airings are Saturdays at 5:30pm and Sundays from 10pm-4am.
View and discuss the AmericanLife TV Network Fall 2010 schedule. Come on back tomorrow for a look at ALN's sister network FamilyNet's Fall 2010 schedule.

The Hallmark Channel will be adding more Who's the Boss? to its schedule starting TODAY, as we mentioned on our message boards late last week. Who's the Boss? will remain in its weekdays 1pm to 3pm slots as it has since May 17, but it will now also gain more hours airing weekdays 6pm to 8pm. That's eight airings every weekday and the evening airings will start from the pilot episode today, which means it will be a different rotation than the current afternoon airings. The evening airings will replace an episode each of dramas Doc (at 6pm) and Touched by an Angel (at 7pm), which means Doc is off the line-up totally and Touched is reduced to just 8pm.
Will Who's the Boss? remain in the evening hours come Sept. 13 when Martha Stewart programming takes over from 10am-6pm? We will let you know as soon as we know, as Hallmark is still working on a schedule. Be patient and stay with us.
