Centric Fall 2010 Schedule, BET Notes; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of September 27, 2010)

We finally have the Centric Fall 2010 schedule. As we mentioned on the BET Fall 2010 schedule, The Cosby Show is joining sister network Centric starting Sept. 26. Centric will have a 12-hour launch on Sunday, Sept. 26 from 9am-9pm featuring all 24 first season episodes. Then BET will promote the sitcom coming to Centric with a week-long marathon on BET from 11am-5pm all next week (Sept. 27-Oct. 1) featuring the all-time best episodes. So we knew all that already, now we know when Centric will air the show! The series will air weeknights from 8-10pm ET and 1-2am starting Monday, Sept. 27. It will also air on weekends, Saturdays 8-9pm & 12-1am and Sundays 6-7pm & 11pm-12am. The weekend airings will be encores from weeknights, though. Also joining the Centric line-up will be the '90s sketch comedy In Living Color, which has aired on sister network BET in the past. The series will air back-to-back weeknights in the 10pm hour and encores at 2am every weeknight.
The series schedule for Centric looks like this on weekdays starting Monday: 6am Miami Vice, 7am The A-Team, 12pm Soul Train, 1-2pm The Steve Harvey Show, 2-3pm Jamie Foxx Show, 3pm Flick Central movie, 5-6pm The Steve Harvey Show, 6-7pm Jamie Foxx Show, 7pm original encores, 8-10pm The Cosby Show, 10-11pm In Living Color, 11pm The A-Team, 12am Miami Vice, 1-2am The Cosby Show, 2-3am In Living Color, 3am Flick Central Movie, and 5am The A-Team.
Weekends will continue to have marathons in the daytime, such as October 2-3 will have The Proud Family (Sat 12pm-6pm and Sun 9am-5pm). The Proud Family is no longer airing weekdays at 12 noon as you can see. And we mentioned Cosby Show's weekend slots above.
View the episode info for The Cosby Show launch marathon on Centric.

We have a BET note for you, too. City Guys didn't have the launch marathon last Saturday (Sept. 18) as planned, but BET has moved that launch to Saturday, Oct. 2 from 9am-12pm. Then after that you can still catch the show every Saturday morning from 9am-11am as planned starting Oct. 9. And view the episode info for BET's The Cosby Show week-long marathon.


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
