More Good News, Hallmark Channel Adds More Sitcom Airings; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of January 21, 2013)

The Golden Girls

It was just the other day we told you about The Hallmark Channel adding an extra hour of Happy Days, now we have even more good news! Beginning this Monday (January 21, 2013), the Hallmark Channel is removing the 8-10am episode of Home & Family and will replace it with two hours of The Golden Girls! As a result, now the original talk show block is only from 10am-1pm with Home & Family from 10am-12pm and Marie at noon -- with encores completely gone. But wait, there's even more good news! We get an extra hour each of recently added, new to the schedule sitcoms Happy Days and The Brady Bunch! Where will this extra hour each air? They will air weekdays from 4:00pm-6:00pm, with Happy Days in the 4pm hour and The Brady Bunch in the 5pm hour, both will replace The Golden Girls in the block.

If you're keeping score, it's all Happy Days and The Brady Bunch now from 1pm-10pm. Happy Days weekdays from 1-5pm & Mon-Thurs 8-10pm and The Brady Bunch weekdays from 5-8pm. Wow! As we expected, both sitcoms have been doing pretty well for them so far after a little over 2 weeks of airing on the network. Both comedies are also on other networks (Happy Days on INSP and The Hub, The Brady Bunch on INSP and MeTV), but as not as featured as they are on Hallmark. Will this schedule last for Hallmark? We hope so, but it is promising after 2 weeks! Stay with us for continued updates!


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
