ABC Family's Throwback Week Block; NBC Alters Friday Line-Up in January

Lizzie McGuireThat's So RavenEven Stevens

ABC Family says goodbye to 2014 with its "That's So Throwback" programming block, featuring Disney Channel classic comedy series Lizzie McGuire, That's So Raven, Even Stevens, and original movies The Cheetah Girls and Halloweentown. "That's So Throwback" airs Monday, December 29th, 2014 through Friday, January 2nd, 2015, from midnight to 2AM ET/PT. There is no better time for nostalgia than the end of the year, so why not spend those late nights catching up on the favorite shows of your tween years? Life was simpler when all you had to worry about was whether or not Lizzie was actually going to find Aaron Carter, if Luis beats those mean school bullies at their own game, or if The Cheetah Girls will get their record deal. So instead of reminiscing about your Disney Channel friends or going online to watch clips, hang out with ABC Family and watch the real thing instead. You'll see stars like Hillary Duff, Raven-Symoné, Kyle Massey, Shia LaBeouf, Adrienne Bailon, Sabrina Bryan, and the legendary Debbie Reynolds.


When NBC's Friday line-up returns on Friday, Jan. 16 with new episodes, it will have some timeslot changes. The network will move struggling rookie drama Constantine to the 8:00pm hour, prompting to move news-magazine Dateline NBC to 10:00pm instead. Grimm will still anchor the night at 9:00pm, though, so it is a switch between Constantine and Dateline. The move will be for 5 weeks only, as Constantine has only 5 episodes left to air. No word yet on what will air at 8pm beginning Feb. 27. Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series "Hellblazer," Constantine is a seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, Criminal Minds) specializes in giving hell... hell.

Last Man Standing - "Trick or Treat" (ABC, 8:00PM ET/PT)
It’s Halloween and the Baxter family is excited for their annual party, except for Mike who’s reluctantly tasked with choosing the theme. In hopes of turning everyone against the holiday, Mike decides that maybe if the whole family has to dress up like each other they’ll end up making fun of one another. Eve dresses up like Mandy and Mandy dresses down like Eve, Kristin and Ryan swap roles, and Mike shows up to the party as… Donald Trump!? The impersonating turns into bickering but in the end, the Baxters come together to support Vanessa as she learns that she’s being laid off.

Dr. Ken - "D.K.'s Korean Ghost Story" (ABC, 8:30PM ET/PT)
On Halloween, Allison is disappointed the holiday doesn’t seem to scare Dave anymore, meaning her little boy is growing up, perhaps too fast. But that might change after D.K. tells a scary Korean gwishin (ghost) story. The Park family, as well as the gang at Welltopia, bring the story to life playing the various gwishins.

Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse - "Jack" (OWN, 9:00PM ET/PT)
Marcus deals with the loss of one of his former teammates.
