Married with Children, Saved by the Bell Coming to MTV2; Fox 25th Anniversary Special Now April 22



Married with Children

MTV2 will be adding more sitcoms to its schedule this March! They already air Boy Meets World, Martin and The Wayans Bros. every weekday with filler airings of In Living Color and Malcolm & Eddie from time to time, but now two more sitcoms will be joining the weekday line-up. MTV2 will be borrowing two sitcoms who have been on hiatus from other Viacom-owned networks. Married...with Children and Saved by the Bell are coming to MTV2 starting Monday, March 12, 2012! Both sitcoms have aired on other Viacom-owned networks, with Married...with Children airing on MANY Viacom networks (Spike TV, TV Land, Comedy Central, CMT, Nick at Nite) in the past. Will the sixth time be the charm? The '90s comedy starring Ed O'Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino will air weekday mornings from 10am-12am and Saturdays from 7-9am. The series will continue to be shared with TBS which airs the series in very early mornings anytime between 2-7am.

Saved by the Bell

As for Saved by the Bell, it has aired on Viacom's TeenNick, but hasn't aired in a while. The sitcom currently is not airing on any cable network, as long time network TBS dropped the series from its Sunday line-up earlier this year as they have lost rights. MTV2 will air Saved by the Bell every weekday from 12pm-2pm and Saturdays 9am-12pm. The Bayside High comedy will be the lead-in to Boy Meets World, which airs continues to air weekdays 2-4pm and Saturdays 12pm-4pm. As for the other comedies, The Wayans Bros. will continue to air weeknights 11pm-1am and Sundays 1-4pm, while Martin will air weeknights from 1am-3am and Sundays from 9am-11am & 6pm-9pm.
