GMC Moves Family Ties to Late Night; Suzanne Somers Launches Lifetime Series

Family Ties

GMC has announced a schedule change. The changes will begin next week - Monday, October 1, 2012. '80s family sitcom Family Ties starring Michael J. Fox, who just presented Outstanding Comedy at the Emmy's earlier this week, will be moving to late night. The sitcom, which also starred Michael Gross, Meredith Baxter, and Justine Bateman, will now air Mon-Thurs nights at 2:00am & 2:30am, replacing inspirational programming. Family Ties will now follow '80s comedies 227 (11pm-12am & 1-2am) and Amen (12-1am). Replacing Family Ties' current weekdays 10am-12pm block will now be an hour each of Sister, Sister and Moesha. Those two sitcoms will continue to also air in their Saturday blocks (Sister, Sister from 9am-1pm and Moesha from 1pm-7pm). So this means those two sitcoms are now also on the weekday schedule. No other schedule changes are being made besides these (10am-12pm and 2-3am).

In the Emmy-nominated Family Ties, a couple who spend the '60s as liberal political activists face the problems of raising a family with children who have strongly conservative views. Emmy Award-winning Michael J. Fox portrayed the iconic sitcom character Alex P. Keaton. Stay with us for further updates. Sha la la la!
