The Facts of Life Coming to TV Land in September; Starz Shoots and Scores for Two...Comedies

The Facts of Life

"Tootie!" Yep, Mrs. Garrett and the girls from Eastland are going to spend Labor Day with you all. The Facts of Life is coming to TV Land and will launch with a Labor Day marathon on Monday, Sept. 7 from 9am-8pm! But wait, there's more! The Facts of Life will also air regularly on TV Land every weekday from 6-8pm following Gilligan's Island at 5. No other schedule changes will be made, except Gilligan's evening slot moves to 5-6pm instead of 6-8pm, cutting Bonanza by an airing. The Facts of Life has been airing on Viacom for some months now on sister network Logo, where it has done pretty well...and it will continue to also air on Logo as well. So it's double the fun for The Facts of Life! The series aired from 1979-1988 on NBC and starred Charlotte Rae, Lisa Whelchel, Kim Fields, Mindy Cohn and Nancy McKeon. Stay with us for continued updates!
