ION Television May 2008 Highlights; CBS Summer 2008 Schedule

ION Television has announced its May 2008 schedule and highlights. As of now, there will be no changes to the regular schedule, which means the schedule that started Monday, April 7, will remain in effect unless there is a last minute change. So, Wayans Bros., Steve Harvey, Family Feud, Mama's Family, Quantum Leap and Drew Carey will remain from 5-11pm. Total Theatre Thursday movies for the month of May are: The Cowboys, Superman, Superman II, Risky Business and Bladerunner. RHI on ION movies for Fri-Sun in May include The Odyssey, Neil Simon's London Suite, Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys, and the three-part Larry McMurtry's Streets of Laredo.
