ION Television Fall 2011 Schedule; Nick at Nite Makes Edits To Edits; Lopez Tonight Canceled, Office Reruns Fills in

We sort of gave you a sneak peek at ION's Fall 2011 schedule when we gave you the timeslots for new additions Monk and Psych starting Aug. 21, but now we have the actual fall schedule. What starts on Aug. 21 will be somewhat what you see this fall, but ION will add two more hours to the schedule every weekday starting Monday, Sept. 26! Yes, that means ION Television will start their day now at 1pm ET (instead of 3pm), like they do on weekends. Kicking off the schedule will be Ghost Whisperer airing Mon-Wed from 1pm-4pm. Movies will air from 1-3pm on Thursdays and Fridays, with Monk filling the 3pm hour on Thursdays and Fridays. But that's not all for Monk, it will air every weekday at 4pm & 5pm, replacing Ghost Whisperer. So, that means Monk will air weekdays 4pm, 5pm and 12am, with 3pm airings on Thursdays and Fridays. It will also air weekends from 6pm-10pm, as it will later this month.
The rest of the fall schedule will be the same as we announced for the Aug. 21 schedule. The only changes to fall, as of now, is the expansion of 1-3pm every weekday. View the ION Television Fall 2011 schedule. If anything changes in October or even to this schedule, we will let you know, so as they say in the TV world, stay tuned...

It was just yesterday we gave you the last minute Nick at Nite schedule changes that will begin on Monday, but now before it even starts, Nick at Nite has made edits to the edits! The most notable change is The Nanny will be off the schedule completely, as it was set to move to 3am. Now it is off the line-up, as Nick at Nite made some edits from 11pm-5am. Everybody Hates Chris is getting a second life, as it will air weeknights in the 2am hour and three in a row every night from approx. 4:30-6am. Also not on the schedule anymore will be Home Improvement, which was only scheduled to air Sunday nights at 2am. Both The Nanny and Home Improvement will still be seen on sister network TV Land. Finally, Family Matters has been reduced to only the 6am hour. See the full schedule, because we won't go into more detail here as we did a story yesterday already.

Finally, in some sad news, TBS has canceled Lopez Tonight after nearly two years on air. Tonight will be the final episode for the late night talk show starring George Lopez and will feature guests including Eva Longoria tonight, who was his first ever guest. The series has faltered in the ratings since moving to 12 midnight back in November when Conan started and made the show move from 11pm to 12am. When we gave you TBS' Fall 2011 schedule, Lopez Tonight was of course on that schedule, but the cancelation announcement was made yesterday. Filling in for Lopez Tonight starting next week will be back-to-back episodes of The Office (it is unclear what will air in the encore time period of 2am, but likely the 3am movie will move up to 2am). We will have more on this soon, if anything else will air in this timeslot in the fall, so stay with us for further updates!
