Antenna TV Adds More Alice in April; Andi Mack Gets 3rd Season on Disney

Alice

Antenna TV will make some minor schedule changes for second quarter, beginning Sunday, April 1, 2018 (no, we're not foolin'). New addition Alice is doing red hot and will get three airings per weekday now. Alice will remain airing weekdays at 1pm and 1am, but now it will also air weeknights at 7:30pm! Wow, there's a new girl in town and she's looking good, indeed! It's part of minor weekday early evening changes, with now Growing Pains, Family Ties and Alice airing from 6:30pm-8pm. Other notable changes include Mr. Belvedere and Evening Shade being removed from the line-up, while Dear John returns to the schedule, airing weekends at 4pm. Head of the Class gains airings as well, getting weekends at 2pm while still airing weekdays at 2:30pm, as does Small Wonder now airing weekdays at 5am and remains at 12:30pm. We suggest you look at the April 2018 schedule to see what else has changed, but it's just minor.


Andi Mack

The hit series Andi Mack has been renewed for a third season. The cast - Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Lilan Bowden, Joshua Rush, Sofia Wylie and Asher Angel - got the news while on ABC's Good Morning America yesterday. The series is lauded as a heartwarming, diverse coming-of-age story about the most important things in any young person's life - family and friends, and the journey of self-discovery. It will resume filming soon in Salt Lake City, Utah. On Good Morning America, the Andi Mack cast participated in a book donation to kids in underserved communities through First Book, Disney|ABC Television and Disney Publishing's "Magic of Storytelling" initiative. In March, they will also be featured in a Disney Channel "Magic of Storytelling" interstitial encouraging young viewers to read.

Andi Mack premiered on Disney Channel in April 2017 and ranks among TV's Top 10 series for Kids and Girls 6-11. It reached more than 40 million total viewers and nearly 17 million kids worldwide in the most recent quarter (3Q17) and is the #1 series on Disney Channel VOD and in the DisneyNOW app. A one-hour episode, "Cyrus' Bash-Mitzvah!," premieres Friday, Feb. 23 at 8:00pm EST/PST, and introduces turning points for several characters. Twelve new episodes from season two will debut beginning in June 2018, with episodes from the third season scheduled to debut later in 2018. Andi Mack stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Andi Mack, Lilan Bowden as Bex Mack, Lauren Tom as Celia Mack, Joshua Rush as Cyrus Goodman, Sofia Wylie as Buffy Driscoll and Asher Angel as Jonah Beck. Recurring cast members are Trent Garrett as Bowie Quinn, Stoney Westmoreland as Henry "HAM" Mack, Emily Skinner as Amber, Luke Mullen as T.J. and Darius Marcell as Walker.
