TV Land February 2011 Schedule Highlights; 22nd Annual Producer's Guild of America Awards Nominees

TV Land has announced the February 2011 schedule and highlights. TV Land will only make one schedule change in February 2011 to its regular line-up. Returning to the schedule will be Boston Legal on Tuesday, Feb. 8, airing Tues-Fri at 8:00am replacing encores of All in the Family and Sanford & Son. Those two will still be seen weekdays in the 6pm hour and 7-9pm, respectively. Other than that, there are no schedule changes, but as usual we have plenty of stunts and marathons! TV Land's original comedy block continues on Wednesdays at 10pm with season two of Hot in Cleveland and season one of Retired at 35. Guests for the month on Hot in Cleveland include Sherri Shepherd, Carl Reiner, Jack Wagner, Melanie Griffith, Grady Sizemore, Susan Lucci, and Michael E. Knight. Guests for Retired at 35 in February include John O'Hurley and Fred Willard. As a reminder, the series both premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 19, as we previously mentioned. There will be catch-up marathons for both Hot in Cleveland (Sunday, Feb. 20 from 8pm-1am) and Retired at 35 (Saturday, Feb. 26 from 8-11pm) in February, in case you miss any episode!
Elsewhere, who needs the Super Bowl when you have the Connor Bowl! Watch 7 classic episodes of Roseanne against the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011 from 7pm-10:30pm with some encores airing until 12am! TV Land will do some cross-promotion as well with sister network CMT, by airing the pilot episode of CMT's original sitcom Working Class on Thursday, Feb. 3 at 8:30pm following an encore of Hot in Cleveland. TV Land will also air a special Black History Month special titled AfriCobra on Monday, February 7 at 8:30pm leading into the Monday movie.
TV Land movie premieres for February are Trading Places, Something's Gotta Give, and 1941. Encore airings for the month are Ghost and Ghostbusters. That's about it for February, but there are some one-time-only time adjustments such as Bewitched on a few weekends.
View and discuss the full TV Land February 2011 schedule and highlights.
