In other ABC Family updates, on Monday we told you that original sitcom Melissa & Joey was ordered for 20 more episodes, and yes that is still true, but they are now airing only 12 in the first half rather than 15. This means the fall finale will NOT be on Tuesday, Nov. 16 anymore, but it will be on Tuesday, Oct. 26 now. So 12 of the 30 episodes would have aired by then, meaning that 18 episodes will remain to air sometime in early 2011. This also means there is no catch-up marathon on Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 1-8pm. However a mini-stack has been added on Friday, Nov. 19 from 7pm-11pm. No return date has been announced yet, but ABC Family did announce earlier this week that Pretty Little Liars will move to Mondays at 8pm for its second half of the season starting Jan. 3, followed by season four of Greek at 9pm. So it's possible Melissa & Joey could return to Tuesdays at 8p starting in January. Stay with us for updates.
And finally when the Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas airs on weeknights starting Nov. 22, we mentioned before that My Wife & Kids will have its evening airings at 6pm aired at 1pm instead of 8 Simple Rules, but now that is not happening and 8 Simple Rules will remain at 1pm and My Wife & Kids will air at 12am still for these 10 days, while the Christmas programming airs weeknights starting at 6pm.
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!
For the week of Oct. 18-22, 2010, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
