TBS Edits Fall 2011 Schedule; All-New Happy Endings Episode On ABC Next Wednesday

We gave you TBS' Fall 2011 schedule already, but now they have made edits to it. Since Lopez Tonight has been canceled, the line-up will change. Effective Monday, Sept. 5, The Office will move to Mon-Thurs 12am & 12:30am replacing the talk show. The encore at 2am will be replaced by another hour of Seinfeld. As for The Office, it will leave its afternoon timeslot of 3:30pm, replaced by another Everybody Loves Raymond. Now those are the changes because of the cancelation of Lopez Tonight, but there are other changes as well that will begin a few weeks later. Eventually, once the MLB Playoffs are over with it, we'll see some daytime sitcom changes. Among the changes from the original fall schedule are, Meet the Browns airing for a full hour at 10am in between House of Payne at 9:30am and 11am. According to Jim moves to 11:30am, while Yes, Dear gets the full 12 noon hour. Everybody Loves Raymond will move out of its 5pm hour, but it will air for two-hours now from 2pm-4pm, leading into a two-hour block of Friends (this starts Sept. 6 actually). Some of these changes will not begin on Sept. 26, but after MLB Playoffs are over with.
Weekends will also change some, with more sitcom airings! The biggest note on weekends is that Saved by the Bell will air Sundays from 6am-8am! It's not leaving the schedule after all now, but it will only be on Sundays now starting Oct. 9. Screech and the gang will lead into two-hours of Friends from 8am-10am and Home Improvement in the 10am hour, before movies air the rest of the day on Sundays. On Saturdays, it's Married...With Children in the 6am hour still, but My Name Is Earl will now from 7am-9am. According to Jim airs at 9am, followed by three airings of Yes, Dear from 9:30am-11am. Movies will air starting at 11am, but sitcoms return usually at 3:30pm or 4pm. Jim would air at 3:30pm and more Friends from 4-6pm leading into The Big Bang Theory. One other note, The Steve Harvey Show isn't on the schedule anymore after Saturday, Sept. 24. It is probably just resting, as it was on the original fall schedule on Saturdays.
View the UPDATED TBS Fall 2011 schedule. I have made the new changes in BOLD.

Yes, it is still summer but ABC has one leftover episode of the hilarious Happy Endings still to air from last season. The network aired 12 of the 13 episodes in the spring and didn't have room for this episode, but now we can watch it next Wednesday in lieu of the new season coming in September. The episode is "Why Can't You Read Me?" and has Jane thinking Alex is trying to steal her thunder with Jane's literacy group, so their old sibling rivalry heats up. Meanwhile, Dave is dating an attractive women's Lacrosse coach (guest star Bre Blair) with a strange quirk, and Penny finally gets an assistant (guest star Gina Rodriguez) and is determined to be the "cool boss," with disastrous results on an all-new episode airing Wednesday, August 24 at 9:30pm ET on ABC.
If you missed any of the previous twelve episodes, ABC has been airing them all summer, but if you even missed those, the first season DVD is out on Tuesday, Sept. 20 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with all 13 first season episodes. And if that's not all, ABC Family will air a marathon of 12 of the 13 episodes (we assume the newest episode won't be in the marathon) on Friday, Sept. 16 from 5pm-11pm ET. The second season premieres Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 9:30pm right after Modern Family on ABC. So start, catch-up or re-watch them again, because they are even funnier the second time around.
Happy Endings stars Elisha Cuthbert as Alex, Zachary Knighton as Dave, Eliza Coupe as Jane, Damon Wayans, Jr. as Brad, Adam Pally as Max and Casey Wilson as Penny.
