TV One Primetime Schedule Changes; ABC Orders Winter Wipeout for January/February; Chilean Miners 20/20 Special Tonight

Yes, we have TV One news two days in a row! It was just yesterday we gave you TV One's November 2010 schedule, but now they made a schedule change that started last night. The weeknight block of 9-11pm has changed. Airing now in the 9pm hour, now we have back-to-back episodes of A Different World, that pushes Living Single from just 9:30pm to now a full hour at 10pm, replacing an episode each of All of Us and The Tracy Morgan Show. So now All of Us only will air Saturday mornings in the 7am hour and Tracy Morgan Show is off the regular schedule completely. But as we mentioned yesterday, there will be a stunt on Saturday, Nov. 14. Encores of A Different World and Living Single will air between 12-2am.

The Big Balls are shivering in anticipation because this January, ABC's Wipeout is back with a brand new "Winter Wonderland" course, complete with slippery ice, frosty snow and numerous avalanches of Wipeouts. Cold climate-loving contestants will bundle up as they compete on all-new stunts such as the Spanker Sleds, the Wipeout Ski Lift and the Polar Bear Run. So cozy up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate, and join us for a winter edition that is sure to Wipeout your winter blues. This new winter series will be in addition to the summer series of season four, bringing the season episode order to 24 episodes. 8 episodes of the Winter edition will air starting in January and continuing in February. A date and time has not been announced yet, but there are two options: Thursdays at 8 and Tuesdays at 8. If Tuesdays at 8, they would have No Ordinary Family move to 9pm. If it's Thursdays at 8, then we know V isn't coming here and Secret Millionaire is airing in Nov/Dec. Still plenty of schedule announcements are to come, so stay with us. And yes, 16 regular episodes will still air this summer, so not to fret, you'll still have your regular summer fix!
Wipeout is hosted by John Anderson & John Henson and co-hosted by Jill Wagner.

And finally, ABC will schedule an ABC News special tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 13) at 10pm titled A Special Edition of 20/20: Miracle at the Mine on on those amazing Chilean miners that are being rescued. The special will be anchored by Diane Sawyer from New York with reports from Bill Weir and John Quinones. This means new legal drama The Whole Truth is preempted tonight. So make a note of that.
