Three's a Crowd Premieres June 27 on Antenna TV; TeenNick Acquires Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared

In January we mentioned that the Three's Company spin-off series (or as most call it, a follow-up series), Three's a Crowd will premiere on Monday, June 27 in the Three's Company timeslots (Mon-Thurs 6-7pm and encores 12-1am) only on Antenna TV...vintage without the funny smell. This is still on target and is now official! See what happens to Jack Tripper as he moves in with his girlfriend Vicky! Three's Company will return to the timeslots after the 22 episodes of the spin-off air, so on Thursday, July 14, you can see Jack Tripper move in with Janet & Chrissy from the beginning all over again! This is such a unique way of airing the series and both spin-offs, as I have mentioned already. We are glad Antenna TV is doing this! And for those of you who missed The Ropers, not to worry, you'll see it again next time on Antenna TV in the rotation when they move out of Three's Company.
Elsewhere on Antenna TV, they are getting for their new schedule that will start next week (May 30), that we announced first. You'll see Burns & Allen and Mad About You join the weekday line-up and then on Sundays, you can catch a new morning block of rare gems Circus Boy, The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin and Iron Horse! And if that's not all, Sunday nights get funner with the zany soap opera sitcom Soap airing in a two-hour block!
Movies airing in June will be some classics, some gems and some rarities. It's a nice mix. Some of the films include Ghostbusters II, The Indian In The Cupboard, Sunset Park, Glitter, Vice Versa, Mixed Nuts, Stairway to Heaven and many more!

The other day we told you about Buffy the Vampire Slayer finally coming to TeenNick, and don't worry Sunnydale fans that is still happening on May 30, but starting June 13, two more series will join the line-up! The short-lived series Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared will join the late night line-up. Freaks & Geeks will air after Buffy at 11pm and Undeclared will air at 12:00am & 12:30am. Freaks & Geeks will also air at 2am following another Buffy at 1am. Both series had Seth Rogen in them.
These two series have been airing on IFC, as we reported. However, they only air them once a week, and TeenNick is planning to air them six nights a week (every night except Friday nights). Both series only have 18 episodes, so this could be temporary only, as TeenNick is getting ready for its new "The '90s Are All That" late night block this fall. Stay with us...
