The Nanny Back On Nick at Nite; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 22, 2011)

Well that was fast. The Nanny is back on Nick at Nite as of last night. In a last minute move, the sitcom is replacing Married...with Children on the schedule every weeknight at 12 midnight. Married...with Children is not going to air on weekends either, as the 12 midnight hour will have George Lopez starting this weekend. George Lopez will also get a special marathon tomorrow night (Saturday, Aug. 20) from 11pm-6am. And as for these regular schedule changes, they won't occur next week because Nick at Nite will air a week-long My Wife and Kids marathon from 11pm-6am from Monday, Aug. 22 through Sunday, Aug. 28. As of now, Married...with Children is not airing, but that could change come Sept. 5 when the fall schedule starts with the addition of Friends. We'll bring that to you very soon! Stay with us for continued fall 2011 schedules starting Monday.
For now, view these changes that have started, as of last night.

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
For the week of August 22-26, 2011, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
