Nick at Nite Changes Its Primetime Schedule; Reimagine That! with Chris Mann Launches With Guest Star Joyce DeWitt

Last week Nick at Nite changed its primetime line-up a bit with the biggest change being Friends getting a two-hour block from 11pm-1am, now starting this week they changed the schedule a bit more. The 8-11pm block which was My Wife & Kids, George Lopez and That '70s Show will be reshuffled. Instead of that order, That '70s Show will now lead off, moving from 10pm to 8pm. George Lopez moves back to its 10pm home of many years, as My Wife & Kids moves to the 9pm hour. Primetime will lead into Friends from 11pm-1am, followed by the late night block which will remain intact. From 1-2am is That '70s Show, followed by Everybody Hates Chris at 2am, My Wife & Kids at 3am, and George Lopez at 4am. Family Matters will remain at 5am, but as of last week, the 6am hour is now back to more Family Matters, replacing The Nanny, which is off the schedule again. The Nanny is now only on sister network TV Land.
As of now these are all the changes, but if anything else changes, we will let you know. We'll be there for you! (Friends theme song pun intended!)

Our buddy Chris Mann of Retroality.TV has now launched an online podcast series! It's a behind-the-scenes podcast called "Reimagine That! with Chris Mann." The first episode has gone live and has a very special guest star--Joyce DeWitt! We also interviewed Joyce a few months ago, so if you missed that, please read it! As for Chris' show, it's Retro pop meets forward thought as Retroality.TV editor, author and host Chris Mann interviews Three's Company star Joyce DeWitt about the late, great John Ritter, Priscilla Barnes, Suzanne Somers' and Charlie Sheen's acrimonious series exits, James Franco, Richard Kline, late Three's Company executive Don Taffner Sr. and more. Joyce gives her candid views on Hollywood's obse$$ion with "reimagining" TV and movie hits, offers her light-hearted take on her current off-Broadway play Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage and tells how she reimagined her own life at age 35 when she embarked on a transformative spiritual odyssey when Three's Company ended. This is only part 1 of Chris' two-part interview with Joyce, as episode two will post in mid-October! So as they say in the TV world, to be continued...
ALSO on the premiere episode podcast: Retroality's story behind the story of controversy surrounding The Farrah Fawcett Foundation and its president, Alana Stewart. And, in the first of a recurring "dream weaver" segment, reimagine your own reality with dream interpreter Yvonne Ryba.
The new program is hosted by our buddy Chris Mann and the announcer is also a buddy of ours, Linda Kay (PerfectStrangers.tv). The program is also created by Chris Mann and produced by Linda Kay and Chris Mann. Congrats to both Chris and Linda on this new podcast and we cannot wait to see what else they have in store!
Listen to episode one and stay with us for more news on "Reimagine That! with Chris Mann."
