Hallmark Channel Adds More Frasier in June 2011; Cast of Modern Family on Inside the Actors Studio

The Hallmark Channel released their June line-up about a week or so ago, but now there is a slight schedule change. Effective Monday, June 6, an extra hour of Frasier will be added. The Kelsey Grammer sitcom will gain the 11pm hour reducing The Golden Girls to two-hours in late night, now 12am-2am instead of 11pm-12am. This must mean good news for the Cheers spin-off that ran from 1993-2004.
There are no other schedule changes, so expect the current line-up to continue minus the 11pm hour change. Don't forget to watch the marathons and stunts in June 2011 as well!
In other Hallmark Channel news, they announced a Dog awards show. They are our companions and comrades; they fight on the front lines alongside our servicemen at war and assist our disabled and ailing at home; they help solve crimes and locate missing persons; they are a treasured and beloved part of our families; they guide us, protect us and risk their own safety for our benefit -- everyday dogs not only enrich, but save lives around the globe. Hallmark Channel is proud to announce today that it is joining American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards(TM) presented by CESAR(R) Canine Cuisine to honor our remarkable canine friends and their immeasurable contributions. The Hero Dog Awards, produced by Emmy(R) Award winning MRB Productions, feature a nationwide search for America's top dogs, which will culminate in a red carpet celebrity-filled awards gala and 90-minute televised special premiering on Hallmark Channel November 11, 2011 at 8:00PM, ET/PT.

Hey, hey! On Tuesday, June 7 at 8 p.m., ET/PT, Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio host James Lipton welcomes the hilarious cast of Modern Family to the iconic stage. Every week, Ed O'Neill, Sofia Vegara, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet win the hearts of millions of viewers as the loveable, yet dysfunctional, Pritchett/Dunphy clan. This ensemble captivates the audience as Lipton traverses through the unique career of each cast member. Though only six people appear on stage, Lipton poses questions to Jay (O'Neill), Gloria (Vegara), Phil (Burrell), Claire (Bowen), Mitchell (Tyler Ferguson), and Cameron (Stonestreet) throughout the course of the show. Watch it only on Bravo next Tuesday!
Catch repeats of Modern Family all summer long every Wednesday at 9pm on ABC. It's even funnier the second time around! No salt needed in your milk.
