TV Land Airing That '70s Show in June 2012; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 16, 2012)


That '70s Show

TV Land will start airing That '70s Show starting June 1. The 1998-2006 Fox sitcom has been airing on the Viacom family since June 2008 when The N (now TeenNick) started airing the show. Last June, TeenNick stopped airing the sitcom but sister network Nick at Nite started airing the show and they still air the series every night at 10pm. That '70s Show can also be seen on Viacom-owned MTV from time to time in the early evenings. The Viacom networks share the series with ABC Family. Anyway, TV Land will start airing the series on June 1 and they will air a three-night marathon from Friday, June 1 through Sunday, June 3 from 9pm-12am each night. We have no idea right now if the series will also remain on Nick at Nite. It is possible it will since it does well for them and series like The Nanny air on both networks. Originally back when the Viacom deal was announced, it was supposed to go from TeenNick to TV Land in Fall 2010, but Nick at Nite started airing it in June 2011.

That '70s Show revolves around the lives of several teens living in Wisconsin in 1976 including Eric Forman (Topher Grace), who lives under the authority of parents, the girl next door and girlfriend Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon), Fez (Wilmer Valderrama), a foreign-exchange student soaking up American culture, Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), her on-again, off-again boyfriend Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) and Steven Hyde (Danny Masterson), the conspiracy theorist of the group. The gang spends their time in Eric's basement, thinking of their lives, parents, and futures, but they manage to get into funny adventures and mishaps along the way through their teenage years.

We will reveal its regular airing schedule on TV Land very soon when we announce the June 2012 schedule. That '70s Show will not be the only new addition! Hint: a classic sitcom is coming to TV Land this June! What is it? Stay with us in the near future when we announce the June line-up. And also keep checking back if That '70s Show will still remain on Nick at Nite or not come June (my hunch is it will be on both networks).
