Brady Bunch, Home Improvement Back on Hallmark Channel Weekdays; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 29, 2016)

The Brady Bunch Home Improvement

The Hallmark Channel has brought back The Brady Bunch and Home Improvement to its weekday schedule. 4 episodes each of the sitcoms are airing from 2-6pm, with The Brady Bunch from 2-4pm and Home Improvement from 4-6pm, leading into the newer Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing from 6-9pm.
