Working Class Season Finale April 1, No Foolin'; BET Adds Weekend Girlfriends Marathon, The Game Season Finale on March 29

CMT's original sitcom, Working Class, starring Melissa Peterman and Ed Asner, will kick-off its season one finale night Friday, April 1, with two new back-to-back episodes premiering at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT and 8:30 p.m., ET/PT.
In the first episode of the one-hour finale block, Carli brings an internet date (Guest star David Faustino, Married... with Children) to Rob's housewarming party, hoping to prove that she is a good catch. In the episode immediately following, Carli accepts an "employee of the month" award from Parker Foods, setting the stage for a flashback to when she first interviewed for the job (Guest star Martin Mull, Roseanne and 'Til Death).
The series has a 12 episode order for the first season and will complete it by airing two episodes on April 1. The Singing Bee 3, which is hosted by Working Class star Melissa Peterman, takes over the time period beginning April 8. No word yet on a second season of the sitcom, but odds are that it will get a second season. Stay tuned!

In a last minute scheduling move, BET has added a weekend marathon of sitcom Girlfriends for this coming week, March 19-20. Girlfriends will air this Saturday (March 19) from 8am-6:30pm into a mini-block of The Game. Then the marathon continues on Sunday (March 20) with a block from 10:30am-3:30pm. Girlfriends airs weekdays on BET in the 12 noon hour. It also airs at various times on weekends in the early afternoon. Elsewhere at BET, there will be a full season four marathon of all 13 episodes of The Game on Saturday, April 2 from 3pm-9:30pm. The season finale will air on Tuesday, March 29 at 10pm. But the following Tuesday (April 5) a special "Twitter" encore episode (not sure what it is yet) of the finale is scheduled at 10pm leading into the finale of freshman sitcom Let's Stay Together at 10:30pm. Then on Tuesday, April 12, there will be a special all-new The Mo'nique Show at a special time of 9pm with the cast of The Game reuniting leading into new series Toya at 10pm. No word on a fifth season of The Game or a second season of Let's Stay Together, but based on the strong TV ratings for The Game, it is very likely a new season will be ordered! The jury is out though for Let's Stay Together. Stay tuned!
