The Hub October 2013 Schedule with Step by Step; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of October 7, 2013)

We already told you about Step by Step coming to The Hub on Oct. 7, but now we can give you the full schedule for The Hub. Step by Step will air Mon-Fri at 7-8pm ET/4-5pm PT & encores Mon-Thu 2-3am ET/11pm-12am PT. The series will begin with the very first episode and go in order. Animation fans will see Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures each move back an hour as a result, airing 5-6pm and 6-7pm, respectively. Step by Step will lead into a Movie in primetime at 8pm. From 10pm-12am, sitcom blocks will remain, with Happy Days on Mondays, Laverne & Shirley on Tuesdays, Mork & Mindy on Wednesdays, and ALF on Thursdays. In late night, an encore of the primetime movie will air at midnight leading into the Step by Step encore from 2-3am. The sitcom block encores will now shift from 2-4am to 3-5am. Sliders will be off of the Mon-Thurs line-up, as well as Hercules which will be replaced by an episode each of Family Ties and Sabrina the Teenage Witch from 5-6am.

On Fridays, Step by Step will air 7-8pm as we mentioned, but not in late night. A movie will air in primetime still at 8pm, leading into Family Game Night. Back-to-back episodes of Hercules will follow. Then it is two-hours of Lois & Clark from 1-3am, followed by a double shot of Happy Days from 3-4am. Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy will fill the 4-5am hour into Sliders at 5am. On Saturday nights, Lois & Clark will air from 1-3am into Hercules at 3am, and that's all we need to know for that night. And finally on Sundays, after the primetime movie at 8, sitcoms will air from about 10pm-3:30am. Step by Step starts it off in the 10pm hour, then ALF at 11, Happy Days at midnight, Laverne & Shirley at 1, Mork & Mindy at 2, and a single episode of Family Ties at 3am. That about covers it TV series/sitcom wise. Remember this all starts Monday (October 7)!


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!
