WGN America Fall 2010 Schedule UPDATE: Dharma & Greg; TV Land Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Andy Griffith Show

A couple of weeks back we gave you details on WGN America's Fall 2010 schedule, now they have edited the schedule just a bit because they have acquired a new sitcom! WGN America has acquired the '90s sitcom Dharma & Greg and will start it on Monday, Sept. 13, 2010! The series last aired on FX and WE tv. WGN America will air Dharma & Greg Mon-Thurs at 7pm & 7:30pm ET (4-5pm PT) and also Sunday mornings at 10am & 10:30am ET. On Fridays, as we already mentioned Old Christine will air in the 7pm ET hour, so no Dharma there. The 7-8pm ET Dharma & Greg airings on Mon-Thurs will replace the previously scheduled America's Funniest Home Videos, which will slide to weekdays at 6pm ET. And then Cheers will slide back into the 5pm ET hour, where it is currently airing. What about Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie? They will each get a half-hour reduced because of these changes, with I Dream of Jeannie now at 4pm ET and Bewitched remaining at 4:30pm ET. That's too bad, but at least they are still on the schedule. Those Sunday morning Dharma & Greg airings will replace the planned Bewitched airings. The only other schedule change is long time staple Singstation! will remain on the schedule now, airing Saturday mornings in the 6am ET half-hour.
View the FULL and update WGN America Fall 2010 schedule. And stay tuned tomorrow for an all-new fall cable network schedule!
