Nick at Nite Fall 2010 Schedule Has My Wife & Kids; TVLand.com Has Best Month Ever, While They Test The Nanny Overnight for 5 Days

As we mentioned a few times, Nick at Nite is getting the rights to My Wife & Kids this fall and will start airing it on Monday, Aug. 30! Michael Kyle is a husband, father of three and owner of Kyle trucking. Join Nick at Nite as he brings his hilarious family-man antics to Nick at Nite and shows everyone just how he cares for his wife and kids! The series will also remain in the daytime on ABC Family, as we mentioned, and in local broadcast syndication. Back to Nick at Nite, the Bumper to Bumper summer marathons end on Friday, Aug. 27. My Wife & Kids will air Sun-Thurs in the 8pm ET/PT hour and every night in the 2am ET/PT hour. However, the 2am hour will not start until Saturday, Sept. 4, because from 9pm-6am the week of Aug. 30 to Sept. 3, it is wall-to-wall George Lopez for five nights! After you get a taste of Nick at Nite's newest addition, stick around for all night marathons of George Lopez!
As for the rest of the regular schedule, the question was if The Nanny will still remain on Nick at Nite since it started airing on sister network TV Land in August. The answer is, yes, The Nanny will be on both networks...but they will not overlap. The Nanny will remain in its 11pm hour every night on Nick at Nite, with another hour in late night at 4am. The Nanny is slated to air on TV Land in September weeknights in the 8pm hour and 1am hour (and weekends from 1:30am-3:30am), so it is not against Nick at Nite. The rest of the Nick at Nite schedule still has Everybody Hates Chris at 9 and George Lopez at 10, but Malcolm in the Middle will now be at 12am. An encore of George Lopez remains in the 1am hour leading into My Wife & Kids at 2 (1am hour on weekends will be The Nanny, though). In the 3am hour, it's another hour of Everybody Hates Chris leading into the aforementioned hour of The Nanny at 4am. This means Family Matters will now be early mornings only from 5am-7am. every morning.
It's a pretty straight forward schedule and the flow is very good, I think, with mostly every slot scheduled for 7 days a week. As you know, The Cosby Show's contract with TV Land/Nick at Nite is expiring, so it will be off the line-up. As we mentioned, WGN America will also lose the series come September, but another network has picked it up and we will announce that soon! Glenn Martin, DDS will start its second season in September as well, airing Friday nights at 10:30pm! More info on that will come soon.
For now, view the Nick at Nite Fall 2010 schedule and highlights. And stay tuned tomorrow for another all-new cable fall schedule!

June 2010 was a record-breaking month for TVLand.com as it witnessed the best month ever in the site's history! Fueled by the premiere of TV Land's new original sitcom Hot in Cleveland on June 16, TVLand.com doubled its prior month's audience and saw a 62% increase versus last year. The site offered exclusive and hilarious multi-media content featuring the sitcom's stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White as well as behind-the-scenes set tours, video interviews, character bios, cast and episode photo galleries and much more.
Additionally, June 16 also marked the site's re-launch with a new look and feel. On that day, TVLand.com experienced its most-visited day ever for the site – more than twice its prior record for unique visitors. Video content from Hot in Cleveland resulted in TVLand.com streaming almost 8 million videos in June – double-digit increases versus May 2010 and last year's consumption level. TVLand.com generated 923K (source: comScore Media Metrix) unique visitors for the month of June 2010, which was up 108% versus May 2010 and 62% versus year-ago levels making it the best month ever for the site.
In other TV Land news, they will be airing five nights of The Nanny in late night to test the waters I guess. Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22, 2010 from 3:30am-6am (in addition to the regular 1:30am-3:30am airings) and Monday, August 23; Tuesday, August 24 and Wednesday, August 25, 2010 from 2am-6am (in addition to the regular 1-2am airings). The Nanny regularly airs on TV Land weeknights 8-9pm & 1-2am and weekends from 1:30am-3:30am.
