Full House

You got it dude! ABC Family is bringing back Full House from its hiatus this coming Monday (July 22, 2013). The '80s/'90s sitcom took a breather as ABC Family was airing reruns of its original dramas during the day (as weekday strips). Full House will air for two full hours from 12-2pm replacing an episode each of Switched at Birth and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. So, the two-hour block will be the lead-in for two-hour blocks of Reba from 2-4pm and That '70s Show from 4-6pm. Of course the other sitcoms ABC Family air are older series Boy Meets World weekdays from 7-9:30am and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air weeknights from 12-1am. ABC Family also airs reruns of Gilmore Girls (weekdays at 11am) and AFV (some weekdays at 6pm) to round out its rerun line-up.

Full House can also still be seen on Nick at Nite every weekday from 8-10pm and 5-7am. The series aired from 1987-1995 on ABC and starred John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lori Loughlin, Andrea Barber and Scott Weinger. The sitcom was set in San Francisco, where the show chronicled widowed father Danny Tanner, who, after the death of his wife Pam, enlisted his best friend Joey Gladstone and his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis to help raise his three daughters, D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle.
