TV One October 2010 Schedule; AmericanLife TV Not Launching The Fall Guy

On Friday we told you of the TV One schedule changes happening during the evenings starting Sept. 20, now we can give you the TV One October 2010 schedule, which is part two of their fall schedule. As we mentioned, beginning on Monday, October 4 at 6pm, TV One adds the series premiere of Judge Karen's Court with Judge Karen Mills-Francis. Called "the most colorful judge on TV," by The Los Angeles Times, Judge Karen is known for her trademark burgundy robes and blonde hair along with her razor-sharp wit and compassionate heart. Viewers will embrace Judge Karen's feisty personality and passionate advocacy for families and children. The show will premiere back to back episodes at 6pm & 6:30pm with encores airing the following day at 6am & 6:30am. The morning encores will replace Divorce Court.
Judge Karen's Court will be replacing Good Times in the 6pm hour. Good Times will move to the 5pm hour replacing Sanford & Son, which will still remain in the 3pm half-hour. The only other change is in the 4pm hour, with New York Undercover coming back replacing an hour of Divorce Court, and yes that means it is off the schedule for now.
As for stunts, on Sunday, October 10 beginning at 12pm Noon through 5pm, TV One airs a premiere week marathon of the new courtroom series Judge Karen's Court with Judge Karen Mills-Francis as the presiding judge. On Saturday, October 16 beginning at 1pm through 8pm (encores from 12-6am), it's boys being boys as TV One presents the "Martin - Boys will Be Boyz" Marathon featuring episodes of the popular TV One sitcom focusing on the friendship between Martin Payne and his boy and confidant Tommy. And finally, on Sunday, October 31 beginning at 12 Noon through 8pm, the ghouls and goblins are upon us as Halloween comes to TV One in the form of the TV One "Hallo-Scream" Marathon. TV One showcases Halloween-themed episodes of TV One sitcoms A Different World, The Jeffersons, Martin, Living Single, and The Hughleys. You can watch encores of The Jeffersons Halloween episodes from 3am-5am later that night.

A couple of weeks ago we gave you AmericanLife TV Network's fall schedule and mentioned that among the new series joining the line-up would be '80s drama The Fall Guy starting Oct. 1. ALN has announced that the series will not be joining the schedule after all. As a result, Sue Thomas F.B.eye will remain in the Mon-Thurs 7pm and 10pm ET hours. All of the other new series we mentioned that would join the line-up will still join. They are Power of Attorney, Texas Justice, Cristina's Court, Chicago Hope and ALN Today original series.
It is too bad The Fall Guy is not joining. It is not joining the line-up due to a few episodes having music issues, so ALN has decided to just remove the series before launching. ALN was seeking a replacement from 20th Century Fox, but as of now, it is not happening. We had word that 4 sitcoms would join, but that didn't happen. And then there was word of Boston Public being the replacement, but so far nothing on that. Stay tuned if anything at all is added, but as of now Sue Thomas F.B.eye is staying in its current slots.

Eve dresses up like Mandy and Mandy dresses down like Eve, Kristin and Ryan swap roles, and Mike shows up to the party as… Donald Trump!?
