TBS Schedule Changes When Conan Starts; Greatest TV Holiday Moments on Nov. 26 on Fox

TBS made a schedule change this week to get ready for the launch of Conan O'Brien's new talk show starting Monday, Nov. 8. TBS moved the Lopez Tonight encore to 1am, bumping Sex and the City to the 4am hour. The TBS late move now airs at 2am. But what happens when Conan starts? Effective Monday, Nov. 8, Conan will air Mon-Thurs at 11pm, as Lopez Tonight moves to its new time of 12am. This means My Name is Earl will no longer air from 12-1am, instead the sitcom will move to weekdays at 5pm replacing one of the Everybody Loves Raymond airings. Raymond will still air from 1:30pm-3pm every weekday. Back to late night, encores of Conan and Lopez Tonight will air at 1am and 2am, so the Lopez Tonight encore moves back to 2am after over a month at 1am. The TBS late movie moves back to 3am, so this means Sex and the City is gone at 4am and totally off the schedule. But TBS is losing the rights to the show, as we mentioned E! and style have acquired the series beginning in January, 2011.
Elsewhere on TBS November, we mentioned already that original series Glory Daze airs Tuesdays at 10pm starting Nov. 16. TBS will air a movie marathon on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, Nov. 25) from 10am-4pm leading into a special block of The Office and My Name is Earl from 4pm-7pm. The day after on Friday, Nov. 26 it's the Seinfeld Happy Festivus marathon from 11am-8pm. Also, TBS gets into the holiday spirit early with the classic holiday special Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas on Friday, Nov. 19 at 8pm and Sunday, Nov. 21 at 7pm.

Speaking of the holiday season, celebrate the start of the holiday season with TV's Greatest Holiday Moments: A Paley Center for Media Special (working title), an all-new holiday event airing Friday, Nov. 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox.
The two-hour special will count down the Top 40 holiday moments of all time gathered from holiday sitcoms, dramas, variety specials, late-night programs and sketch shows. Relive television's most memorable holiday scenes and laugh, cry and remember the reason for the season.
We wonder what classic sitcom holiday moments will be included? Maybe Mrs. Brady singing and getting her voice back on Christmas morning on The Brady Bunch? Or perhaps one of the Bewitched holiday episodes? Watch and see on Nov. 26!
