MeTV January 2018 Schedule Has Diff'rent Strokes; HBO Hit Comedy Returns for 2nd Year

Diff'rent Strokes

Diff'rent Strokes is coming to The MeTV Network this January! The Gary Coleman sitcom will launch on January 1 airing weekday mornings at 6:30am and Sundays from 3-4pm, both following The Facts of Life. The series was previously on Antenna TV a few years back. This is the only addition to the January 2018 Winter MeTV schedule. Some shows are returning from hiatus, though, and they are: Peter Gunn, Mr. Lucky, Kolchak: The Night Stalker and Land of the Giants. With some shows returning, that means a few shows will be off the schedule, and they are: T.J. Hooker, I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show, Highway Patrol and The Outer Limits. Some other changes include Mama's Family weeknights at 9:30pm and Sundays 4-5pm, as ALF will now only be Sundays from 6-7am. View the full MeTV Network January 2018 schedule.


High Mainteannce

Providing a peek into the cramped apartments, grinding routines and urban neuroses of New Yorkers, the hit comedy High Maintenance kicks off its ten-episode second season Friday, Jan. 19 from 11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on HBO. Ben Sinclair returns as The Guy, a bearded, pot-dealing deliveryman whose growing clientele is keeping him busier than ever. Introducing new customers and revisiting familiar ones, the second season of High Maintenance weaves together a labyrinth of humor, poignant observations and heartfelt moments in stories that explore the lives of intriguing and colorful individuals from all walks of life. Created by Katja Blichfeld (Emmy(R)-winning casting director of 30 Rock) and Ben Sinclair (Home Again, Sisters), High Maintenance is executive produced by Katja Blichfeld, Ben Sinclair and Russell Gregory.

A comedy of human interaction, the new season of High Maintenance delves deeper into the contemporary anxieties New Yorkers are experiencing, from political tension to soaring real estate prices, while emphasizing the importance of savoring the highs of life in this increasingly volatile world. Pulling back the curtain on The Guy's personal life, the second season reveals a few more people and details of what happens when he's not on the clock. New guest stars this season include Danielle Brooks (Orange Is the New Black), John Gallagher, Jr. (HBO's The Newsroom), Jessica Hecht (The Forgotten), Luzer Twersky (Félix & Meira) and Kate Lyn Sheil (Girlfriend), with Abdullah Saeed (Bong Appétit) and Yael Stone (Orange Is the New Black) returning.
