The Hub Upfront 2011, Acquires 5th Grader; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of March 28 2011)

The Hub had its first upfront yesterday. The network of course was re-branded on October 10, 2010, and is available to 60 million U.S. cable and satellite households. It was formerly known as Discovery Kids. A music competition for kids, family game shows based on iconic, beloved brands, and an animated Warren Buffett are among the nine new original programs that will join ten returning popular series with new episodes in the 2011-2012 program lineup on The Hub.
We won't go much into this since it is not sitcom related. There is no word if any sitcoms will join the line-up airing opposite the current batch: Happy Days, The Wonder Years, Doogier Howser, Family Ties, Laverne & Shirley and of course action comedy Batman. If and when they do, we will let you know. They did acquire game show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, though. The live-action game show premiered on Fox in 2007 followed by all-new episodes in first-run syndication. 309 half-hour episodes have been acquired by The Hub.
Stay with us for any further updates as we get it!


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
For the week of March 21-25, 2010, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
