Chicago's ME-TV Spring Line-Up; 'Mad About You' on Oxygen and Nick@Nite

Attention viewers in Chicago! ME-TV (WWME) has announced its spring line-up, which starts April 3. There are some some series leaving. The Facts of Life, Who's the Boss?, Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy are among the sitcoms leaving. That is too bad for Facts of Life fans because now the show will be airing no where again (except for Comcast On Demand's Tube Time channel)--thank heavens for the DVD in May. The schedule has I Dream of Jeannie moving to weekdays too and The Brady Bunch just Sundays. View their lineup here.

As I have mentioned many times, Mad About You joins the Nick@Nite line-up in April, airing every night at 11 p.m. But I forgot to remind everyone that it is a shared cable deal and Oxygen is also airing it. They started airing the series on March 11. A very long time ago when the deal was made I told everyone that it was a shared deal, so I didn't completely miss out. We just haven't had ties with Oxygen in recent months, but now we will hopefully. You can catch it weekdays at 10 & 10:30am and again 5 & 5:30pm. They also have weekend sitcom marathons now. Saturdays 5-8pm and again Sundays 10am-1pm. For April it is: Grace Under Fire (4/1 & 4/2), Living Single (4/8 & 4/9), Mad About You (4/15 & 4/16), Roseanne (4/22 & 4/23) and A Different World (4/23 & 4/30).
So, come July, Oxygen and Nick@Nite will be sharing three shows -- Roseanne, Mad About You and A Different World. A Different World joins the Nick@Nite line-up in July.
