Original Sitcoms Coming To Weekend Syndication In Fall 2012; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of January 23, 2012)
We will have more on this as we get closer to summer, but it is nice to have original sitcoms return to weekend broadcast stations. There have been many good first-run syndicated sitcoms in the past such as Small Wonder, Charles in Charge, Out of this World and Harry and the Hendersons. As I mentioned in yesterday's blog, NATPE 2012 starts on Monday so perhaps more news will come about on these new sitcoms then. During NATPE 2011 there was word that two original sitcoms (stars including Tamera Mowry, Alfonso Ribeiro, David Faustino and Sherman Hemsley) were being sold, but for cable, though we never heard about that again. Anyway, stay with us for clearances, casting and more on The First Family and Mr. Box Office!
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, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
For the week of January 23-27, 2012, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! All times listed are Eastern. So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
