Nick at Nite Adds Everybody Loves Raymond January 1; George Lopez Hosts CW Dog Show

Everybody Loves Raymond

As we mentioned, Nick at Nite is adding the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond in early 2015. Now we know exactly when. Nick at Nite will add the Ray Romano/Patricia Heaton sitcom on Thursday, January 1, 2015 and will air it every night at approx. 12:12am & 12:48am. Raymond has been airing on sister network TV Land since March 2010, but as of this writing it is still unclear if TV Land will continue to air it in 2015. We'll let you know as soon as we find out. Back to Nite at Nite, Raymond will follow the primetime line-up of Full House (8-10pm), The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (10-11pm) and Friends (11pm-12:12am). The addition of Raymond means that How I Met Your Mother will slide from 12:12am-1:24am to 1:24am-2:36am. George Lopez will be sliced in half from 4 episodes to 2 episodes from 2:36am-3:48am. More How I Met Your Mother airs from 3:48am-4:57am, followed by Full House from 4:57am-6am. And finally, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air closes it out from 6-7am.

Nick at Nite will begin the series with the pilot episode, where Debra wants a quiet birthday at home with Raymond. Stay with us for continued updates on Raymond and all things Nick at Nite.
