TV Land Testing All in the Family in Primetime; The First Annual Comedy Awards

From Monday, March 7 through Friday, March 11, 2011, TV Land will air All in the Family from 7:00pm-9:00pm instead of Sanford & Son. No reason for the change was given, but All in the Family already airs on TV Land in the 6pm hour every night and Tues-Fri in the 8am half-hour. The series is gaining the 8am half-hour starting March 1 and the 6pm hour on weekends starting March 5, as we previously mentioned.
This means from March 7-11, you can watch All in the Family in the evenings from 6-9pm! And if you get Antenna TV, you can watch another hour starting at 9pm. That's a whole lotta All in the Family, but the three-hour schedule on TV Land is only for a week. Could this be because it is doing well or that Sanford & Son needed a break? Only time will tell, if this goes beyond a week. Sanford & Son will only air at 8:30am on TV Land from March 7-11, but if you miss it that week in primetime, catch it on Antenna TV in the 8pm hour.
View once again the TV Land March 2011 schedule. Stay with us if anything changes and we should have April 2011 in the coming weeks as well, so stay tuned!

Nominations for the first annual The Comedy Awards were announced by Comedy Central and MTV Networks, both divisions of Viacom. The Comedy Awards is the first-ever multi-network, multi-platform, annual event dedicated to honoring and celebrating the world of comedy. Airing on Sunday, April 10, The Comedy Awards has garnered support from some of the most iconic names in comedy history.
The nominees reflect a broad range of comedic talent in film, television, stand-up, animation and digital content. 30 Rock leads the television categories with seven nominations, with The Office and Modern Family each scoring four nominations. These three hit shows are up against cult favorites, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Eastbound & Down in the Comedy Series category. Nominees were selected by the prestigious The Comedy Awards Board of Directors, which include: James Burrows, Stephen Colbert, Billy Crystal, James Dixon, Whoopi Goldberg, Brad Grey, Caroline Hirsch, Martin Lesak, Seth MacFarlane, Adam McKay, Jimmy Miller, Conan O'Brien, Peter Principato, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers, Jay Roach, Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Rory Rosegarten, Phil Rosenthal, Michael Rotenberg, George Schlatter, Sharon Sheinwold Jackson, Mitzi Shore, Jon Stewart, Lily Tomlin and Sandy Wernick.
The winners of each category will be chosen by an invitation-only voting body comprised of nearly 1000 members from the comedy community -- including writers, producers, performers and directors.
