The N Revamps April Schedule, Adds Brothers Garcia; ABC Brings Back Murder Club, Moves Legal and Trees, ABC Summer Slate Announced

The N is totally revamping its schedule almost starting next week (Monday, April 7). Weekdays 6am-3pm will remain the same as it is now, so we still will have Growing Pains in the noon hour. It looks like All That didn't do "all that" well for The N because the only slot it will air now is weekdays at 7am. Replacing it weekdays at 3pm is an hour of Instant Star. The four in a row block from 4pm-4am will be basically gone now. 4-5pm weekdays will see the sitcom Brothers Garcia join the line-up. The series was a Nickelodeon sitcom from 2000-2003. An hour each of Kenan & Kel, Zoey 101 and Saved by the Bell follows until 8pm. In primetime we get more Kenen & Kel in the 8pm hour, followed by an hour each of Fresh Prince, Zoey 101 and Saved by the Bell until midnight. The four in a row block from 12-2am will remain with Kenan & Kel on Mondays, Fresh Prince on Tuesdays, One on One on Wednesdays and Degrassi on Thursdays. Degrassi will air a ton on weekends, Fridays 7pm-6am, 6:00pm-12:30am on weekends, and 3-6am on Saturday nights. Weekends will see some changes as well, with Brothers Garcia airing in the 9am hour and 12pm hours. To see the FULL new line-up, I really advise you to click HERE.

We were the first ones to tell you on our messages boards last week that ABC was going to move Women's Murder Club to Tuesdays at 10PM starting April 29...and we were right!
Women's Murder Club will return with original episodes on Tuesday, April at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT, on ABC. The one-hour series from James Patterson will air for three weeks (April 29, May 6 and May 13) in that time period.
As a result, Boston Legal will move to Wednesday nights at 10:00 p.m., as of Wednesday, April 30, where it will air for three weeks, on April 30, May 14 and May 21, with a preemption for an ABC News special on May 7. Boston Legal will still return on Tuesday, April 8 and air on April 15 and 22 as well in its Tuesday night at 10:00 p.m. time slot.
MEN IN TREES will return on Wednesday, May 28 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT, following Boston Legal's run for its final three episodes of the season.

ABC announces its summer schedule with the premiere of eight original series, including the return of The Bachelorette on Monday, May 19 (9:00-11:00 p.m....moves to 10:00pm the following week), following the performance show finale of Dancing with the Stars; The Mole on Monday, May 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m.); Wipeout on Tuesday, June 24 (8:00-9:00 p.m.); I Survived a Japanese Game Show on Tuesday, June 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m.); ABC News' Hopkins on Thursday, June 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m.); Dance Machine on Friday, June 27 (8:00-9:00 p.m.); High School Musical: Summer Session on Sunday, July 20 (8:00-9:00 p.m....will air Sundays and Mondays at 8:00pm); and Wanna Bet on Monday, July 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m.).
