TV Land March 2011 Schedule and Highlights; 17th Annual SAG Awards Winners

TV Land has announced its March 2011 schedule and highlights and there are some changes as well. Looks like Boston Legal is just for February, as All in the Family and Sanford & Son morning airings return in the 8am hour from Tues-Fri starting March 1. Legal starts in the hour on Feb. 8, as we mentioned last month. The only other schedule changes are on weekends and it seems Married...with Children is only lasting in January and February on TV Land. Effective Saturday, March 5, the sitcom is once again off of the schedule. The series aired Saturdays from 4pm-9pm and Sundays from 4pm-8pm. Replacing it on Saturdays is another hour of Bewitched, an hour of Hot in Cleveland repeats, an hour of All in the Family at 6, and Sanford & Son from 7-9pm. And replacing it on Sundays is two more extra hours of Bewitched, an hour of All in the Family at 6 and Sanford & Son in the 7pm hour. No other schedule changes will be made to the regular schedule.
Original series Hot in Cleveland and Retired at 35 will continue to air Wednesdays in the 10pm hour. The mid-season finale of Cleveland and the season finale of Retired will air on March 23. Guest starring this month on Cleveland are Jon Lovitz, Isaiah Mustafa, Carl Reiner, Gregory Harrison, Sherri Shepherd and Amy Sedaris. Meanwhile, Retired at 35 welcomes guest star Peter Bonerz in March and Fred Willard returns. Episode info for the month for both series is available on the highlights link below.
To celebrate the upcoming mid-season finale for Hot in Cleveland, TV Land will air a marathon of the previous nine episodes from the season. It's gotten really hot in Cleveland! Elka's trial is only a few days away. Victoria is still broke and scheming. Joy is still trying to figure out a way to avoid deportation. This weekend, find out how the ladies got themselves into this mess when TV Land airs a marathon of season two on Sunday, March 20 starting at 6pm, and then be sure to come back on Wednesday, March 23 to see what fate has in store for Elka, Victoria, Joy and Melanie. The marathon also airs Saturday, March 19 from 4:30pm-9pm.
Join TV Land for a night of laughs on Saturday, April 2 at 8pm as they look back at some of the funniest and most memorable moments from past American Comedy Award shows in The Best of the American Comedy Awards: A Retrospective of Past Award Shows from 1987-2001.
