This TV Adds Green Acres; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 5, 2012)

Green Acres

This TV quietly added Green Acres to their schedule yesterday morning. The first two episodes of the series, "Oliver Buys a Farm" and "Lisa's First Day on the Farm", aired at 5-6am. It will air weekdays at 5-6am and weekends at 7-8am. The 7am weekend airing will occasionally be pre-empted when they have a longer movie on the schedule. Check their show page for any additional airings. Green Acres last aired on MeTV earlier this year from June 20 to September 1 as part of their "Summer of Me" block.

Highway Patrol, Sea Hunt, Bat Masterson (which was airing on Sundays at 7am) and The Outer Limits (1963) have been taken off the lineup. The first three of those classic series were produced by Ziv Television Programs. As we mentioned back in September, This TV also airs The Patty Duke Show and Mister Ed. In addition to its regular 6am timeslot, The Patty Duke Show will receive additional airings some weekdays and weekends at 4am. Mister Ed will air some weekdays and weekends at 4:30am plus their regular 6:30am timeslot. Stargate SG-1 remains on Sundays at 9pm and 10pm. The rest of their schedule includes animated series from the Cookie Jar Toons archive like Inspector Gagdget, Hurricanes, Action Man, Metajets, and Sabrina, the Animated Series. Movies or E/I programming fill out the rest of their lineup.
