Hallmark Channel Fall 2012 Schedule With Numb3rs; NBC to Give Second Sneak Peek for Guys with Kids

Today we return to bring you a cable network fall 2012 schedule! We bring you The Hallmark Channel's Fall 2012 schedule which will focus on the new revamped original talk show line-up. Beginning Monday, Oct. 1 the new daytime line-up of originals will begin at 10am with Home & Family, which is a daily, two-hour hosted lifestyle program at Universal Studios in California. The home features authentic indoor/outdoor spaces including a kitchen and dining room, various living rooms, and gardens. Then at 12 noon, it's the premiere of Marie Osmond's new daytime talk show: Marie. With a lineup of celebrity friends and family, experts, and other special guests, Marie is a daily celebration exploring everything from family, cooking, and parenting to health and fitness, decorating and entertaining. Her first week guests are: Betty White, Fran Drescher, Mark Steines & Paige Davis, Marisa Jaret Winkour, and Melody Thomas Scott. Other guests for the month will include Charles Shaughnessy, Florence Henderson, Tom Bergeron and Kellie Martin. And finally the original daytime will close with an encore of Home & Family from 1-3pm.

As for off-network series, Hallmark Channel has acquired the rights to the drama Numb3rs starring Rob Morrow, David Krumholtz, and Judd Hirsch. The drama is also coming to ION Television and MyNetwork TV this Fall, but it is leaving TNT. The series will air on Hallmark starting October 1 and will air Mondays in primetime at 8pm and 9pm, replacing two airings of Little House on the Prairie for the week. Other than that, no other schedule changes at all! This means, I Love Lucy remains from 5-8am, followed by The Golden Girls from 8-10pm leading into the original series block. Following that block, it's The Waltons still from 3-6pm, leading into Little House on the Prairie from 6-10pm (except 8-10pm on Mondays). From 10pm-12am, we still have our daily dose of Frasier, into Golden Girls from 12-2am. In the overnight, the gang from Cheers remain from 2-3am leading into spin-off Frasier from 3-5am.

On weekends, it's also status quo. On Saturdays, we have I Love Lucy from 5am-9am, then The Golden Girls thanks you for being a friend from 9-11am as it leads into movies through 1am. Late nights has more Golden Girls from 1-3am, into Frasier from 3-5am. Sundays is the same as Saturdays except there is one less movie as Frasier airs 11pm-1am. That's pretty much it, as there are no marathon stunts in October.
View the full Hallmark Channel Fall 2012 schedule. Stay with us should anything change or something changes later in the fall.


NBC has announced it will give a second sneak peek of new comedy Guys with Kids. Originally the upcoming new sitcom was set to premiere Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8:30pm, but it will now air its second sneak peek on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at a special time of 9:30pm, following an encore of the Animal Practice pilot (yes, again) at 9. The series will preview tomorrow (Sept. 12) first at 10pm with the pilot episode. So if you're keeping score at home, Sept. 12 at 10pm is episode one, Sept. 19 at 9:30pm is episode two and Sept. 26 at 8:30pm is episode three (and this is its regular time period). I am not sure if this is good strategy by NBC or not, as it is confusing for viewers to know when its regular time period is. On the series premiere tomorrow night (Sept. 12), when Chris (Jesse Bradford) is asked out to a Knicks game, he must find a babysitter without his ex-wife Shelia (Erinn Hayes) finding out. Elsewhere, Gary (Anthony Anderson) and Marny (Tempestt Bledsoe) find an unusual spot for some alone time. Meanwhile, Nick (Zach Cregger) is in the dog house when he forgets about an important event with his wife, Emily (Jamie-Lynn Sigler).
Stay tuned tomorrow right here on the blog for our pilot review of Guys with Kids. We will detail it and tell you our thoughts and what the show is about before it premiere. So come on back!


We leave you today with a special sneak peek of the entire first episode of the upcoming new drama Last Resort presented by Yahoo! TV. We have been in love with this pilot since May. Now you will see why! The series premieres Thursday, Sept. 27 at 8/7c on ABC. The episode will be available through September 17 on Yahoo! TV:
