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?

Sitcoms Airing Tonight

Friday, January 30

Last Man Standing - "Eve's Breakup" (ABC, 8:00PM ET/PT)
Although Eve insists she’s OK after her first high school break-up, everyone has an opinion as to how she should deal with her feelings. To take her mind off it, Mike has her tag along to watch sports on Ed’s new 120-inch TV. Also, while shopping for Kristin’s wedding dress, she and Mandy fight over how Kristin broke up with Kyle.

Cristela - "Hypertension" (ABC, 8:30PM ET/PT)
Daniela is worried that Cristela is neglecting her health due to her beyond-busy schedule. Daniela suggests that maybe if Cristela lost a few pounds, she could find herself a husband and ultimately mirror the life Daniela lives now. Cristela retorts by saying she doesn’t want Daniela’s life or her looks, she’s happy with who she is and being career focused. The tables are turned when Daniela coaxes Cristela down to a free clinic to test their blood pressure and it’s revealed Daniela is the one who should be concerned. Meanwhile at the office, Josh tries to impress Trent by volunteering to learn CPR and Maddie decides to teach him a lesson he won’t forget.
