TV Land Brings Back M*A*S*H In Primetime; Just My Show Interviews Susan Clark of Webster

TV Land will bring back M*A*S*H into primetime every weekday starting August 15. Currently the series only airs on TV Land on Sunday nights in primetime and Monday nights in the overnight, but it will be expanded to five days a week at 8:00pm & 8:30pm starting Monday, Aug. 15, 2011. Alan Alda and company will replace an hour of All in the Family. As a result of this change, Sanford & Son's triple shot from 6pm-7:30pm will be reduced to 6-7pm, while All in the Family's triple shot from 7:30pm-9pm will be now the 7-8pm hour. Saturdays will remain the three episodes each of these two comedies, as M*A*S*H in the 8pm hour is Mon-Fri only. Everything else will remain the same in August 2011, as we previously announced.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for TV Land's September 2011 schedule as next week we will start our annual "fall schedules barrage" with networks like Antenna TV, WGN America and more kicking it off! Mark down July 26 as the start of fall schedules every weekday for the rest of the summer!

Our friend Eric of Just My Show has put up episode 62 of his podcast! You may know her simply as Ma'am. Stage and screen star Susan Clark joins Eric's podcast to take us back to her days as Katherine Papadopolis on the classic '80s sitcom Webster. From starring with her real life husband, Alex Karras, to the secret passageways you wish you had, Just My Show covers it all! Plus, Major League, GoBots and more cowbell in the latest edition of New News About Old Stuff.
So without further adieu and without losing track of the days (Webster theme pun), listen to Susan Clark on Just My Show!
