TV Land October 2010 Schedule REVISED with Jeannie; Nick at Nite Pulls Malcolm

TV Land has revised its October 2010 schedule and will air I Dream of Jeannie as a regular after all. Previously, it was slated to have just a launch marathon the weekend of Oct. 23-24 and then join the line-up in November. The marathon is still happening, but the series will actually join the line-up now on Tuesday, Oct. 5! I Dream of Jeannie will air back-to-back in the 10am hour starting Oct. 5, replacing an episode each of The Jeffersons and Good Times. Those two series will air Tues-Fri in the 9am hour (Jeffersons/Good Times) and weekdays in the 5pm hour (Good Times/Jeffersons) starting Oct. 4.
Other schedule changes happening are Gunsmoke moving to weekdays at 12pm, Bonanza now weekdays 1pm-4pm, as Andy Griffith Show is now cut to weekdays in the 4pm hour, leading into Good Times & The Jeffersons in the 5pm hour. The morning changes are Tues-Fri, as movies air on Mondays. Boston Legal is now gone from 8am, as an episode each of All in the Family and Sanford & Son will air. Those two sitcoms will still air in the evenings, 6-7pm and 7-9pm, respectively. As mentioned The Jeffersons & Good Times are at 9am, followed by I Dream of Jeannie in the 10am hour leading into the return of Bewitched, airing back-to-back in the 11am hour! One other note, starting this Monday (Sept. 20), The Nanny will air Monday nights in the 9pm hour leading into the TV Land PRIME movie at 10pm. Everybody Loves Raymond still airs every other night at 9.
View the UPDATED TV Land October 2010 schedule and feel free to discuss these morning/afternoon changes that start on Oct. 4 and Oct. 5.

Moving on to sister network Nick at Nite, effective tonight (Sept. 16), Nick at Nite is pulling Malcolm in the Middle from the line-up. The sitcom was airing every night at 12:00am & 12:30am and will now be replaced by another hour of The Nanny. That series will now air every night from 11pm-1am and in the 4am hour. The other change is on Fridays, with My Wife & Kids added to Fridays in the 9pm half-hour, replacing Everybody Hates Chris, which moves to Fridays at 12:30am, replacing Malcolm (so no The Nanny in this half-hour). Everything else remains the same as it is now.
As we previously mentioned, this Saturday (Sept. 18), there is an Everybody Hates Chris marathon from 10pm-5am. There is a chance Malcolm in the Middle will still air weekends in the 12am hour, but we're not sure yet. It is not airing this weekend though due to the Chris marathon. The Nanny already airs on weekends in the 11pm, 1am, and 4am hours, so maybe 12am will remain Malcolm on weekends? We'll let you know.
For now, view the updated Nick a Nite Fall 2010 schedule.
