Rhoda Coming to MeTV Network in July 2013; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 24, 2013)

Rhoda
The MeTV Network is reuniting Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) and Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper)! Beginning Monday, July 8, The Mary Tyler Moore Show spin-off series Rhoda will join the MeTV line-up and will air weeknights at 9:30PM. This means both The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda, will air weeknights back-to-back beginning at 9:00PM. The addition of Rhoda will push back The Dick Van Dyke Show from 9:30 to 10PM, while The Odd Couple also gets pushed from 10PM to 10:30PM. The odd show out will be Hogan's Heroes, which was airing at 10:30pm, but will now be off the line-up. These changes are last minute additions to the already announced Summer of Me line-up on MeTV, which we announced before. No other changes will be made. Rhoda is a surprise and welcome addition, though. Relive the comedy and sometimes drama of two best friends who met in Minneapolis, shared an apartment, as well as years of laughter, tears and everything in between. Mary and Rhoda are together again on MeTV!

Rhoda was last seen on AmericanLife TV and FamilyNet a few years back. It was paired with another Mary Tyler Moore spin-off, Phyllis. While MeTV won't be airing Phyllis, we still get Rhoda on MeTV. This is a great way to remember Valerie Harper while she is still with us (as you know she is suffering from a rare, terminal cancer). Stay with us for continued updates!

Sitcoms Airing Tonight

Friday, April 19

I Love Lucy - "I Love Lucy Funny Money Special" (CBS, 8:00PM ET/PT)
I LOVE LUCY FUNNY MONEY SPECIAL, a new one-hour special featuring two back-to-back colorized episodes of the classic series, will be broadcast Friday, April 19 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The two episodes, “The Million-Dollar Idea” and “Bonus Bucks,” are newly colorized with a nod to the 1950s period in which they were filmed. As with previous “Lucy” specials, the main titles and end credits are seamlessly combined into one set at the beginning and end of the hour, with no interruption between the episodes.

In “The Million-Dollar Idea,” Lucy and Ethel attempt to get rich quick by bottling Lucy’s homemade salad dressing. A commercial pitch on a local TV program results in hundreds of orders, but Ricky soon determines that the girls are not charging enough to cover the cost of production and distribution. They decide to fill the initial orders and get out of the business fast, but a second TV appearance, designed to discourage additional sales, results in even more orders!

In “Bonus Bucks,” it’s the Ricardos vs. the Mertzes when both couples claim ownership of a dollar bill worth three hundred dollars in a newspaper’s “Bonus Bucks” contest. To save their friendship, they decide to split the winnings, each couple keeping half the actual bill until it can be redeemed. Unfortunately, Ricky puts the Ricardos’ half of the dollar in his pajama pocket – and Lucy sends those pajamas to the laundry!

Last Man Standing - "Yass Queen" (Fox, 8:00PM ET/PT)
In an effort to help get her clothing line off the ground and into stores, Mike invites Mandy to sit in on a business meeting with an aggressive sales rep; Ed hires Kyle to transcribe his life story.

The Cool Kids - "Indecent Proposal" (Fox, 8:30PM ET/PT)
In an attempt to date a guy who is way out of her league, Margaret pretends to be someone she's not.

Sydney to the Max - "Little Shop of Reynolds" (Disney Channel, 8:30PM ET/PT)
Sydney and Olive decide to help Max at the bike shop's biggest sale of the year; when Leo's dad hires a girl to work at the arcade, Max and Leo compete to see who can impress her the most.
