Logo Acquires One Day at a Time; CBS Orders Big Bang Prequel Comedy Series

One Day at a Time

Well, this is it! Logo has acquired another classic sitcom and this time it is One Day at a Time! The '70s classic joins the line-up filled with other '70s classics like Soap, Three's Company, and All in the Family, and other classics from other decades like Mama's Family, Green Acres, The Facts of Life, Roseanne and Married...with Children. Logo is certainly becoming a destination for classic sitcoms that rotate in and out. One Day at a Time will join the line-up on Saturday, March 25 with a marathon from 12pm-8pm. It will air in blocks at various times, but it seems it will mainly air weekdays from 9am-11am, in between Soap and The Facts of Life starting March 27. And the series will have a Monday prime block from 7-11pm. One Day at a Time was most recently on Antenna TV, but it is now on a hiatus. Netflix has a new One Day at a Time series and it has done well, with a season two being ordered. Looks like this is certainly a good time for the One Day at a Time franchise!
