MeTV Network Fall 2017 Schedule; Decades Adds The Ed Sullivan Show

MeTV

You perhaps noticed some changes to the MeTV schedule this week, as we mentioned. There are more changes coming beginning Labor Day, September 4. There's a new Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night schedule, and old favorites like The Fugitive joining the lineup. MeTV welcomes some classic comedies, beloved cops and charming angels to the lineup. There's a new look to Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night, while Sundays will take you back to the '80s and '90s. Without further ado, let's take a closer look at the new additions. Aaaaayyyyyy! Happy Days are here again, in primetime at 9:30PM | 8:30C, replacing ALF. Get your rubber chickens ready. Svengoolie has a new time at 8PM | 7C on Saturday nights, following an episode of Wonder Woman. After the horror host delivers his devilishly fun movies, the Caped Crusader swings in with two episode of Batman at 10PM | 9C. Then, head to outer space... and beyond… with Star Trek: The Original Series, Battlestar Galactica and The Outer Limits, kicking off the Red Eye Sci-Fi block.

The new Sunday lineup is filled with laughter, love and a little mystery. ALF gets the morning going at 6AM | 5C. The Brady Bunch Brunch stays the same at 12PM | 11C, though there are some new desserts on the menu. Join Tootie, Blair, Natalie, Jo and Mrs. Garrett and learn about The Facts of Life with two episodes of the classic '80s sitcom at 2PM | 1C. Next, head to Raytown and spend an hour with the Harper clan on Mama's Family (3PM | 2C) before a double dose of Lucille Ball, in I Love Lucy (4PM | 3C) and The Lucy Show (4:30PM | 3:30C). A two-hour cruise on The Love Boat leads into a new Sunday evening lineup. Catch Touched by an Angel both before and after Columbo, at 7PM | 6C and 10PM | 9PM. After the regular block of smart, sharp sitcoms, stay up late as the Feds chase their men in The Fugitive (2AM | 1C) and The Untouchables (3AM | 2C). View the full MeTV Fall 2017 schedule.
