Minor Hallmark Channel Morning & Late Night Changes; Brady and Lucy Trivia Challenge and Full Episodes

It's the dog days of June and it may be slow in terms of news, but we certainly will have news every single day! Stay tuned in the coming weeks for our annual look at the fall schedules for cable networks that air off-network sitcoms! But first, beginning next week The Hallmark Channel will make some minor schedule changes. Effective Monday, June 20, 2011, the blocks of 8-10am and 1-3am will switch. This means The Golden Girls will moves to 8-10am and Frasier gets 3-5am. It's the old switcheroo. These are not the only times these shows will air of course. The current timeslots will remain as well. So to recap, Golden Girls will air weekdays 8-10am and 12-2am, while Frasier will air weekdays 9pm-12am and 3-5am. Everything else will remain as it is currently, including the weekend line-up.
No reason for the change was given, but perhaps they are just trying to strengthen the morning and late night line-up.
