Nick at Nite Adding That '70s Show in June 2011, Buffy Finally Scheduled on TeenNick; The Hub Adds Jem

Nick at Nite has announced it will borrow That '70s Show from its Viacom sibling TeenNick. The former Fox sitcom will start on Memorial Day (Monday, May 30, 2011) on Nick at Nite and will air Sun-Fri at 11:00 p.m. & 11:30 p.m. ET. It will also encore on Mon-Fri nights at 3:00 a.m. & 3:30 a.m. ET. The sitcom will replace an hour of The Nanny in the 11 p.m. hour and will push back the encore of Everybody Hates Chris into the 4am hour. Now just to be aware, Nick at Nite has been "off-the-clock" mode lately starting in the 11:30 p.m. half hour starting approx. 11:32pm and getting longer each half-hour until it catches back up on time at 6:00 a.m. As a result, one full half-hour is lost.
That '70s Show will no longer air on sister network TeenNick, which had been airing the series every night in the 11pm & 2am hours. The sitcom will have its last airing on Sunday, May 29. Instead, TeenNick will FINALLY start airing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which kept on getting delayed. It was supposed to start on May 9, then they kept delaying it. The Sarah Michelle Gellar drama will air every night at 10pm & 11pm staring Tuesday, May 31. Also of note, That '70s Show will remain airing on sister network MTV, which airs the show weeknights in the 6pm hour. And if that isn't enough, That '70 Show will remain on ABC Family and in local syndication as well. Ashton Kutcher, who is on That '70s Show and Buffy's Sarah Michelle Gellar, both have been in the news, as they join network series this fall (Ashton on Two and a Half Men and Sarah on hew new series Ringer on The CW).
View the FULL Nick at Nite June 2011 schedule with the addition of That '70s Show. As of now, we don't have details on any stunts or marathons for the month, but if there are any we will let you know, so stay with us!

With the school year ending and sunny days just around the corner, The Hub television network, a destination for kids and their families, will bring viewers a new summer programming schedule that will reflect the seasonal schedules of kids and parents. Viewers can expect a summer full of special holiday marathons of favorite Hub series, a wide array of popular family-friendly movies, and a new "Saturday Mashup" scheduling strategy.
Throughout the summer, "Saturday Mashup" will feature original episodes of series on The Hub in a special themed lineup that will highlight the network's game shows, comedies, and action/adventure series in designated, kid-friendly blocks.
A preview of the new "Saturday Mashup" programming schedule will debut Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. ET. The Hub will tee up the new Saturday schedule by presenting two back-to-back episodes of each of the popular Hasbro Studios produced series My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, Pound Puppies, and Family Game Night, followed by a three-hour marathon (previously announced) of the first six episodes of Jem and the Holograms, an animated series which originally aired in the late 1980s and whose fans are passionate and numerous.
And finally, in addition to the framed Saturday programming events, The Hub will present special programming lineups for each of the summer holidays with an emphasis on family-friendly shows that kids and their parents will want to watch together. Memorial Day will be celebrated with the network's "Hub of the Brave" day-long lineup of programming featuring heroic acts from some of The Hub’s favorite series characters. Father's Day and Independence Day will feature similar lineups highlighting favorite episodes of GI Joe: A Real American Hero and GI Joe Renegades, and Transformers Generation 1 and Transformers Prime.
We will let you know if there is a sitcom stunt planned or not, similar to their Mother's Day "Mrs. C" Happy Days marathon. So stay with us!
