MeTV Network January 2013 Has Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 10, 2012)

Bewitched I Dream of Jeannie

It was only last Friday we told you about MeTV Network airing an I Dream of Jeannie stunt in memory of the late Larry Hagman and we hinted if the sitcom would be joining the actual MeTV line-up soon? Now we can tell you! I Dream of Jeannie will indeed join The MeTV Network regular schedule as part of their "new year" schedule starting December 31. But that's not all! The classic sitcom Bewitched will also join The MeTV Network line-up! As we have seen many times before on television, both sitcoms will be paired together and air back-to-back. Both series will air in the 8pm ET hour beginning Monday, Dec. 31, 2012 only on The MeTV Network. Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie will replace Remington Steele on the schedule and that drama will be totally off the line-up for now.

The rest of the line-up will have minor changes. Wagon Train joins the Saturday western line-up. Returning to the schedule are The Odd Couple and Honey West, while MeTV Network will bring in The Saint and Mr. Lucky in the overnight on Sunday nights. As we mentioned, Remington Steele is going to leave the schedule, as are the following shows: The Honeymooners, Cheers, Branded, & The Guns of Will Sonnett Schedule highlights include Dobie Gillis returning to weekdays, airing at 5am, while The Odd Couple returns to the schedule and will air in primetime at 10pm. As for upcoming stunts, the MeTV Sunday Showcase on Sunday, Dec. 23 will feature classic animated holiday specials from 3-7pm. Airing will be The First Snow of Winter, The Forgotten Toys, He-Man and She-Ra: A Christmas Special, A Snow White Christmas, and Cricket on the Hearth. We'll come back and detail the sitcom Christmas episodes airing on The MeTV Network but you can expect holiday episodes on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and even shows on hiatus might pop-up like Taxi.
View the full MeTV Network January 2013 schedule. Now last Friday we also mentioned that I Dream of Jeannie would be back on TV for sure in late 2013 (yes almost a year away, hmm). Now what did we mean by that? Well we can't officially say yet but more I Dream of Jeannie, and also Bewitched as well, are to come in late 2013! Stay with us for continued updates!
