TV Land Schedule Change Begins Today In Morning & Late Night; 18th Annual SAG Awards Winners


We didn't get a chance to bring this to you last week, but TV Land has made a schedule change that started today. One of the Murder, She Wrote airings has been moved to 8am effective today (Jan. 30). The Angela Lansbury drama will still remain at 1pm, as it was airing back-to-back at 12pm and 1pm. Murder replaces an hour of Leave it to Beaver, which shifts to the 9am hour replacing Dick Van Dyke. Not to worry, The Dick Van Dyke Show will now be in the 10am hour instead. Andy Griffith Show will go from 10am-12pm to now 11am-1pm. So nothing is getting replaced, just the times are changing from 8am-1pm. Everything else will remain the same in daytime, evenings and primetime. Late nights will have some changes, though. Roseanne was airing 2-3am, but now The Nanny will take the 2:30am slot and keep its 3am half-hour. Three's Company was airing 4-6am, but now will air earlier from 3:30-4:30am, while a second Roseanne will air at 4:30am. Three's Company will remain on weekend late nights from 4-6am, though. Home Improvement will get an encore airing now from 5-6am, as it also airs in primetime from 8-9pm. How about some more power? You got it, because Home Improvement will now air on Saturdays too from 7-9pm.
We'll come back in the coming days to highlight the March 2012 schedule, but it's pretty much the same as this. Just some movie airings and original comedy Happily Divorced returns March 7.
