The schedule normally is like this: My Wife & Kids from 6am-8am, The Jamie Foxx Show from 8-10am and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from 10am-12pm. On Fridays it could vary from this a bit. These are the only comedies airing on the network. You can find My Wife & Kids also on Centric, The Jamie Foxx Show now on CMT and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on BET and Nick at Nite. And these shows have aired on other Viacom networks before, too...but now watch them every morning on VH1!
