Then in the afternoon, Ally McBeal moves to 1pm and is reduced to just one airing. NewsRadio remains in the 2pm hour, but now the 3pm & 4pm hours will be sitcoms instead of Ally. The 3pm hour will have an hour of Becker followed by an hour of Cheers. The evening sitcoms remain unchanged with Becker at 6 and 3rd Rock from the Sun at 7pm.
