i Network December Brings Holiday Episodes of Various Series, 'Growing Pains' Delayed to January; TV Land Presents Originals for 2007

The i network has announced its December line-up and it will be loaded with classic holiday episodes from the Universal, Sony, and Warner libraries! The network also announced that '80s sitcom Growing Pains, which was scheduled to air as a regular weeknights from 8-9pm starting November 27 has been delayed until January. However, Growing Pains will still have a Thanksgiving weekend marathon Nov. 25 and 26. So, the regular lineup will remain the same as it is now in December.
i Network celebrates Christmas almost everyday in December with various holiday episodes and movies. The week of December 4-7 at 6:30 p.m. will see holiday episodes of '60s sitcoms Green Acres, Hazel, The Flying Nun, and McHale's Navy. December 8 will see Christmas episodes of regular time period shows The Monkees and The Partridge Family from 6-7p.m. On Saturday, December 9, following a special airing of Feed the Children and i Health Presents, i will go crime & mystery with classic Christmas episodes of half shows Adam-12, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Dragnet from 9:30-11 p.m. The week of Dec. 11-14 is Amen Christmas episodes week at 7:30 p.m., with a special two-part Christmas episode on Dec. 14 from 7-8 p.m. December 15 will see two Christmas episodes from those Sweathogs on Welcome Back, Kotter from 7-8pm.

That's not all that week, though! Mama's Family gets two Christmas episodes on Dec. 18 and 19 at 8 p.m., '80s sitcom Kate & Allie gets a Christmas airing at 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 19 and the veteran Diagnosis Murder gets a showing on Dec. 22 at 10 p.m. Finally, another Adam-12 Christmas episode will air December 23 at 10:30 p.m. Some of these episodes will repeat, like Mama's Family and Kate & Allie, so I suggest you click HERE to view the ENTIRE holiday programming guide for the i Network, which includes holiday movies!
We will be back in the coming weeks for more on the i Network of course, including the date and time of the premiere of Growing Pains. Will the hours be expanded come January? Will we see more new shows join the schedule with Growing Pains? Only time will tell...so come on back!
