'Kate & Allie' On WE: Women's Entertainment Week of May 1; One Addition to Nick@Nite June

WE: Women's Entertainment will be adding '80s sitcom Kate & Allie...well for a week, that is. From Monday, May 1 to Friday, May 5, you can catch back-to-back episodes of Kate & Allie weeknights at 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET. Then you can catch a marathon on Saturday, May 6 from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. featuring different episodes. Episodes from season one and select episodes from season two will air. So why is WE doing this? Well because Kate & Allie Season One is coming to DVD on Tuesday, May 2. WE and Universal Home Video have come together to bring you this marathon event. This is similar to the DVD marathon of Gimme a Break! on TV One and Miami Vice on TV Land--both of which were also Universal Home Video shows. It would be nice if Kate & Allie would air as a regular, but looks like it will not happen. Make sure you buy the DVD, so fans can be assured of future sets.
Susan Saint James plays Kate McArdle, a woman recently divorced from her unstable (and somewhat flighty) part-time actor husband, Max. She has one daughter, 14-year-old Emma [Ari Meyers]. Jane Curtin's Allie Lowell is also recently divorced from her successful (but unfaithful) doctor husband, Charles. She has a 14-year-old daughter Jennie [Allison Smith] and a seven-year-old son, Chip [Frederick Koehler]. The two friends decide to live together, along with their children. Neither Kate nor Allie have ruled out remarriage, but view their new situation as a provisional reprieve--a time for both women to come to know and appreciate themselves.

Last week we gave you details on Nick@Nite June. Today they added one more stunt. Well...sort of. Nickelodeon and Nick@Nite team-up to bring you the 2003 Rated-PG movie Kangaroo Jack starring Christopher Walken, Jerry O'Connell and Anthony Anderson (Hang Time, All About the Andersons).
Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24
10:00pm – 12:00am
Charlie Carbone (Jerry O’Connell) and Louis Fucci (Anthony Anderson) have been friends since childhood – despite their many differences. When the two get into trouble with a local mobster, Sal Maggia (Christopher Walken), he sends them off to Australia to deliver $50,000 to a Mr. Smith (Marton Csokas) in Coober Pedy. They meet with a freak accident, in which a kangaroo rides off with Louis’ lucky red jacket - and the $50,000. Now they’ve got both Sal and Mr Smith on their tails, while they chase the kangaroo across the outback to recover the cash and save their butts.
Strange they are airing it, isn't it?
