TV Land, TV One Schedule Changes for Evenings; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of September 13, 2010)

TV Land and TV One are both making last minute schedule changes. TV Land's changes are beginning this Monday (Sept. 13), while TV One starts their changes on Monday, Sept. 20. The changes are to early evenings really for both networks. First, TV Land will bring back the evening All in the Family airings at 6pm & 6:30pm, while continuing to air it weekday mornings at 9am. Sanford & Son's evening airings moves out of the 6pm hour and into the 7pm and 8pm hours! Sanford & Son is replacing Cosby Show (and then later the planned Roseanne starting Sept. 20) in the 7pm hour and The Nanny in the 8pm hour. Everything else remains the same as we previously announced.
As for TV One, they will make changes starting Sept. 20. Sanford & Son will now remain in the 5pm hour, instead of the planned Half & Half, as will Good Times in the 6pm hour instead of the planned Good News. And finally Martin will remain in the 8pm & 11pm hours, instead of the planned Good Times at 8:30/11:30. There will be more TV One changes in October when Judge Karen's Court comes, so stay with us next week for that.
For now, view the updated TV Land and TV One Fall schedules.


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!
