TV Land Brings in 'Til Death; Alfonso Ribeiro Joins ABC Family Series

'Til Death

TV Land is going to start airing the Brad Garrett/Joely Fisher sitcom 'Til Death beginning Saturday, June 22. The former Fox sitcom had been bought by Viacom sibling Spike TV for reruns back in Fall 2011, but the sitcom was quickly dropped due to low ratings, along with The King of Queens. That sitcom quickly made its move to TV Land and has been a success on that network. Now, TV Land will start airing 'Til Death as well with it airing on weekends beginning Saturday, June 22. The sitcom will launch with a block from 5-8pm following Roseanne. As of now, weekends will be the only times the sitcom will air. 'Til Death is still going to air on other networks. 'Til Death airs late nights on WGN America, bright and early on Saturday mornings on Cloo and also airs in local syndication as well, mainly in late night. This isn't the only new addition, as we mentioned already Friends is joining the TV Land schedule this Friday (June 14) with a five-night marathon, but that is an actual launch that was planned for months.

In other TV Land news, Three's Company is back on the schedule airing early mornings weekdays at 5:00am & 5:30am, as Home Improvement exits the line-up for now. Also, with the addition of 'Til Death, this means Murder, She Wrote is off of the line-up, as that series was airing on Saturdays. On this series, the newlywed Woodcocks get a primer on life together from their new neighbors and twenty-five-year veterans of marriage, the Starks. Stay with us for continued updates on TV Land!


Alfonso Ribeiro

Alfonso Ribeiro has been named host of ABC Family's new comedic series Spell-Mageddon. The one-hour game show puts a fresh spin on the spelling bee, where contestants take on hilarious distractions while spelling increasingly challenging words, as we announced a few weeks ago. Production begins on Monday, June 17, in Studio City. The show will join ABC Family's Wednesday night comedy line-up on Wednesday, July 24 at 9pm ET/PT following new episodes of sitcoms Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy. Ribeiro, best known for his role as Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and on the sitcom Silver Spoons, is a writer, actor, director and host, and was recently seen on The Graham Norton Show reuniting with Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff for the first time on stage in over a decade.
