Sleuth Fall 2010 Schedule; Network Plans for Obama's Address on August 31

Today we will take a look at Sleuth's Fall 2010 schedule. Earlier this month we told you about Universal HD's Fall 2010 schedule with the additions of Charlie's Angels and T.J. Hooker in October, but some of you probably don't have that network. So maybe you get sister network Sleuth? They won't be adding these two to its regular schedule, but they will air marathons! Every Saturday, Sleuth airs 24-hour classic TV marathons starting at 6am. For October, they will have Charlie's Angels on Oct. 2, T.J. Hooker on Oct. 9, MacGyver on Oct. 16, Nash Bridges on Oct. 23, and Twin Peaks on Oct. 30 for Halloween.
The regular schedule for Sleuth will still have tons of shows airing in stacks. Movies start the day at 6am (but NCIS is on Thursdays from 6-8a) followed by The Dead Zone at 8am. Then stacks air from 9am-5pm usually with Walker Texas Ranger on Mondays, JAG on Tuesdays, House on Wednesdays, The Unit/NCIS on Thursdays, and Monk on Fridays. Various shows air after 5pm including the five shows mentioned above and Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: SVU, Psych and movies. In late nights, Monk airs at 4am and NCIS at 5am.
As mentioned, Saturdays have Classic TV marathons. Sundays have MacGyver from 6-9am then Walker Texas Ranger from 9am-1pm then movies the rest of the day/night. Stunts for the month have a 24-hour Walker Texas Ranger Columbus Day marathon on Monday, Oct. 11 starting at 6am. And there will be a special Sunday 24-hour marathon of House on Sunday, Oct. 17 starting at 6am.
And stay tuned for more fall 2010 schedules as we still have Hallmark, GMC, BET/Centric, New York City locals and part two's (October line-ups) like TV Land and TV One.
