CMT Schedules Married with Children Again; See Brothers & Sisters and Ally McBeal From The Pilot On ReelzChannel

CMT scheduled Married...with Children once again this past weekend, after airing in November and December. The series has bounced around on the Viacom networks airing on Spike TV, TV Land, Comedy Central and CMT over the past few years. It was last seen on TV Land about a month or so ago on weekends and will now resurface on sister network CMT. The Viacom deal as you know is separate from the TBS deal, which has the overnight rights (2am-7am), while Viacom has 7am-2am. Anyway, CMT aired the series in primetime on Friday night after the season finale of Working Class, which had guest star David Faustino (Bud Bundy). The block aired from 9am-12am and was encored the next day (Saturday) from 3-6pm. That isn't the only Married...with Children sighting! This week, it will air in primetime on Thursday (April 7) from 8pm-10:30pm. Then starting April 16, it looks like it will air on Saturdays from 2pm-6pm. It is too bad it isn't airing regularly, but we still have TBS in the overnight/mornings and of course on broadcast on Antenna TV, if you get that station.
This weekend also had a filler airing of Green Acres on Saturday from 2-3pm. Green Acres has only aired on CMT once before at the start of 2011 in their new year marathon. Stay tuned if they air it again, but as of now, nothing is scheduled. Stay with us!
