Day 85: WGA's Strike; NBC Changes; Baywatch Joins ION Television in March; SAG Winners

It is day 85 of the strike. Late Friday, NBC announced some changes to its strike effected line-up. NBC announced a new premiere date for its critically acclaimed Internet series quarterlife from Monday, February 18 to Tuesday, February 26 from 10-11 p.m. ET before it settles into its new regularly scheduled day and time of Sundays from 9-10 p.m. ET beginning March 2. As a result, Monk and Psych, two hits from USA Network that were previously scheduled for their broadcast premiere on NBC on March 2 from 9-11 p.m. ET, will now debut on Sunday, April 6 at 8-9 p.m. (ET) and 9-10 p.m. (ET), respectively.
New game show Amne$ia is slated to premiere Friday, Feb. 22 at 9pm, before moving to 8pm the following week. And new reality show My Dad is Better Than Your Dad will launch early now on Monday, Feb 18 at 8pm...as American Gladiators will end on Feb. 11 and The Baby Borrowers has now been moved to a later date (my guess...March 31?), as that was originally slated for Feb. 18..

ION Media Networks, Inc. has entered into an agreement with distributor Litton Entertainment to air the mega-hit television series, Baywatch, on ION Television.
The agreement marks the latest addition of popular, quality programming to the network's primetime lineup. This upbeat, action-packed series melds real-life issues, accessible characters and tongue-in-cheek humor to provide ION's broad audience with a perennial favorite that defined a genre. Baywatch on ION will launch Monday, March 3, and air Monday through Thursday at 10 pm (ET).
The new agreement is part of ION's ongoing initiative to add compelling programming from leading content providers that blends effectively with the network's signature quality content. This past New Year's Eve, ION Television added to its primetime lineup the Emmy-nominated series, The Drew Carey Show. Baywatch will further broaden the network's appeal by targeting a contemporary audience with fun and upbeat entertainment. The series starred many stars such as David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Alexandra Paul, Carmen Electra and Nicole Eggert.
We will have full ION March 2008 details in the coming few weeks, so stay tuned for that. But for now, you can discuss this HERE!
