TV Land Ends Block Party Block; ABC Family Showcases Boy Meets World with Mini-Marathons, As We Get Closer to Disney's Girl Meets World Premiere

TV Land

TV Land has ended its weeknight block party block. The block was airing weeknights from 6-9pm, with a different sitcom block each night. We had sitcoms like Roseanne, I Love Lucy, The Brady Bunch, and Gilligan's Island. All of these sitcoms are still airing at other times, except for I Love Lucy and Gilligan's Island, which are now both off the line-up. Airing weeknights from 6-9pm will now be The Andy Griffith Show. That sitcom will also air weekday mornings still but will now be expanded to approx. 9-11am. Walker, Texas Ranger will get a third airing, as it will air approx. 11am and it will continue to air approx. 4pm & 5pm. Gunsmoke will now go from three airings to just one airing at around noon. Bonanza will still follow from approx. 1-4pm. In primetime, new addition Who's the Boss? will no longer air 9-10pm, as The King of Queens will take over. Who's the Boss? will still air in weekend blocks and some weeknights at around 3am. The King of Queens will air 9-11:30pm leading into Raymond. Everything else will stay pretty much the same. Stay with us for continued updates as always!


Boy Meets World Girl Meets World

As we mentioned, ABC Family made a schedule change since June 9 that has more Boy Meets World. They have officially announced why. ABC Family is celebrating all things Cory and Topanga with Boy Meets World mini marathons, airing Monday through Friday from 7:00AM- 8:30AM and 4:00PM-6:00PM ET/PT all summer long, in anticipation of the premiere of Disney Channel's family comedy Girl Meets World, Friday, June 27 at 9:45PM ET/PT. After the June 27 TV premiere, Girl Meets World will debut in its regular time slot of 8:30PM, ET/PT on Friday, July 11 on Disney Channel. Disney Channel had a four-hour Boy Meets World Father's Day marathon yesterday (June 15) to get things rolling. Boy Meets World ran on ABC from 1993-2000 and followed the lives of young Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), his friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) and his girlfriend, Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel), as they juggled family, friends and school. The hit sitcom tackled such serious topics as broken families, peer pressure and bullying, while maintaining its clever sense of humor.

Girl Meets World picks up the story 14 years later, with Cory and Topanga now living in New York, married and raising quirky five-year-old son, Auggie (August Maturo), and tween daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard). Riley and her best friend, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), traverse the twists and turns of teenage years at Manhattan's John Quincy Adams Middle School, where Cory is their History teacher.
