Nick at Nite October 2010 Highlights; New Chicago Station The U Too Coming in December

October has already started and we have yet to give you a monthly update on Nick at Nite, but that's because they are remaining the same regularly. However, they will have a few stunts worth looking at. On Saturday (Oct. 9), The Nanny gets a seven-hour marathon beginning at 10pm. Then a few weeks later, on Saturday, Oct. 23, there is a similar marathon for Nick at Nite's newest addition, My Wife and Kids starting at 10pm for seven hours.
Finally a week later, on Saturday, Oct. 30, Nick at Nite will air a Halloween stunt that will include four Halloween episodes of George Lopez from 10pm-12am, followed by a Halloween episode each of Everybody Hates Chris & Malcolm in the Middle in the 12am hour, and finally four Halloween episodes of Family Matters close out the stunt from 1am-3am. Be scared with Ernie, Fran, Chris, Malcolm, Urkel and the rest of your favorite Nick at Nite stars!
View the complete Nick at Nite October 2010 schedule and highlights.

Chicago gets another cool channel! Weigel Broadcasting Co. has announced the newest TV station to join its group: The U Too! The U Too will broadcast over-the-air on digital WCIU-TV 26.5 and 26.6 as well as analog WCUU-CA, Channel 48. The newest sister-station in the Weigel Broadcasting Co. line-up will be an extension of Chicago's first independent station, WCIU, The U. Launch of The U Too will take place in early December of 2010.
The U Too will join such stations for the company such as WCIU, Me-TV, Me-Too and THIS tv. There is no word on what programming will air, but it should be similar in style to WCIU. Hopefully we get some sitcoms as well. It is very likely, but probably nothing like Me-TV or Me-Too.
Here's where Chicago will be able to watch Weigel's newest venture: For viewers watching with an antenna, the over-the-air digital position will be WCIU-TV 26.5 and 26.6. The U Too will also be available on analog WCUU-CA, Channel 48. Cable subscribers will see The U Too on Comcast 248, RCN 35 and WOW 170. At this time, The U Too will not be available for Dish Network and DirecTV customers.
When The U Too launches, FBT, the foreign language digital stream, will no longer be available. Weigel Broadcasting Co. is continuing conversations regarding other distribution options with the few independent producers of the foreign language productions seen on FBT.
Weigel Broadcasting Co. and affiliate companies own and operate WCIU-TV/26.1, Me-TV/ WCIU-TV 26.2, Me-Too/WCIU-TV 26.3, THIS/WCIU-TV 26.4, FBT/WCIU-TV 26.6, WWME-CA 23, Me-Too/WMEU-CA 48 in Chicago, IL, CBS/WDJT-TV 58.1, WMLW/WDJT-TV 58.2, THIS/WDJT-TV 58.3, Shorewest TV/WDJT-TV 58.4, WMLW-CA 41, WMLW-LD 41.1, Me-TV/WBME-TV 49.1, Telemundo/WBME-TV 49.4, Telemundo/WYTU-LD 63.1, Me-TV/WYTU-LP 63 in Milwaukee, WI, and ABC/WBND-TV 57.1, CW/WCWW-TV 25.1, My Michiana/WMYS-TV 69.1, ABC/WBND-LP 57, CW/WCWW-LP 25, My Michiana/WMYS-LP 69 in South Bend, IN.
