TV Land & Nick@Nite August 2006 Highlights; YouTube.com With Unaired Sitcom Pilot, Nice 'Perfect Strangers' Clips

TV Land and Nick@Nite have released their August highlights to us today. For TV Land, the season finale of My First Time will air on August 2, featuring Mr. T and Cybill Shepherd. The Friday Night Movie block comes to an end in August with movies airing on August 4 and 18, both will be followed by a special Happy Days episode. And TV Land has two more new episodes of TV Land Top 10 in August featuring the top 10 musical moments and the 10 cops. The Top 10 Cops episode will have a special themed block right after it with episodes of Andy Griffith and Night Court. That will be the only way to see Night Court after July 1, pending any last minite changes. For all the details on TV Land August click here. A reminder that The Jeffersons are coming to TV Land with a Labor Day Weekend launch. We will have more on that later.
As for Nick@Nite in August, they will continue their annual summer marathons until August 25 (it starts July 17). Three more new Hi-Jinks episodes will air on Tuesdays. And Nick@Nite will head back to school on August 20 with a six episode marathon featuring shows such as Cosby Show, A Different World and Mad About You. As soon as the summer marathons are over, the following Monday Nick@Nite will formally launch A Different World with a five-night marathon. What better way to start the school year than with A Different World! For episode info and more on Nick@Nite August, click here.
We might have more on TV Land (and perhaps Nick@Nite) tomorrow, so come on back. Don't know what yet, but something maybe.

The New York Post is reporting that YouTube.com has the pilot episode of Nobody's Watching - a clever 'Truman Show - like sitcom from the creator of Scrubs and two writers from Family Guy that never made it onto NBC or The WB in 2005. It unexpectedly turned up last week on YouTube, the Web video site on which homemade movies and video clips are posted every day. The show tells the story of a pair of sitcom junkies from Ohio who are drafted by The WB to write a sitcom while living on a sitcom set on a studio lot.
The show was originally written for NBC, which turned it down, and later filmed for The WB, which also eventually turned the pilot down. After that, Nobody's Watching was sent to the rubbish pile...where no one would be um ...watching.
Besides Nobody's Watching, there are scores of pilot episodes hidden on YouTube, including copies of Charmed, Zoey 101 and even an unaired Munsters revival from 1988. You can watch the pilot for
Nobody's Watching by clicking here. NBC and The WB probably thought that nobody was ever going to watch it, but they're wrong!

Speaking of YouTube, a huge Perfect Strangers fan named Linda Kay has put up three very good clip packages for the show. Linda has been a fan of the show since the show's original run on ABC from 1986-93 and owns every episode on tape from ABC. She ran the fan club back then, too. And she has a whole lot of cool related stuff from the show. She plans to make a website for the show and I personally can't wait for her to do it! I am very impressed by the clips and by her knowledge of the show. You can view the clip packages here: Package 1. Package 2. Package 3.
And she says she made two more during the original run that she will put on YouTube very soon, too. The clips are very entertaining and match the music very well. It is a must see!
