To Lucy, or Not To Lucy, Is the Question on Hallmark; Andy's 50th on Me-TV; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of October 4, 2010)

Hallmark Channel is making more changes to daytime beginning next week (Oct. 4). This change is a change that they planned on doing a week or so ago but never did it. They will move the encores of The Martha Stewart Show to 1pm & 2pm, instead of the current 4pm & 5pm. They had planned to do this already, but changed it before it even started. This means I Love Lucy only lasted three days this week in that 1-3pm block. Little House on the Prairie will air from 3-6pm now, with 3pm remaining and 4pm & 5pm added replacing the Martha encores. Of course, I Love Lucy remains on weekends still 6-9am and 1am-4am. Hopefully it is back on weekdays very soon, and if and when it does, we will let you know of course.

Tomorrow night (Saturday, Oct. 2) in Chicago, Me-TV is celebrating Mayberry's golden anniversary! Watch the entire, uncut first season of The Andy Griffith Show, beginning at 6 PM CT, ONLY on Me-TV Chicago. Can you believe it has been 50 years since the show premiered?
