First off, Fantasy Island got a preview marathon on Dec. 8 and it will join the Sunday night line-up regularly beginning Sunday, December 29, 2013. The series will air Sundays at 8pm & 9pm. Leading in will be Magnum P.I. at 7pm and leading out will be Bionic Woman at 10pm to form a new Sunday night block. Starting Thursday, December 26, Cozi TV will add a new western to its weekday morning line-up. Joining the schedule will be reruns of the classic James Garner western, Maverick.
