TV Land June 2008 Schedule and Highlights; BET Adds More Hours to Strokes Marathon on April 20

TV Land has released their June 2008 schedule and highlights! Joining the line-up will be Hogan's Heroes. The '60s sitcom has not aired on TV Land for quite some time and now it is back in an all-new deal! The show will air weekdays at 5:00pm & 5:30pm and every night at 1:00am & 1:30am ET/PT starting Monday, June 2. Hogan's Heroes will also air Sunday afternoons from 12-2pm ET/PT. The show will get a weekend marathon on June 7 and 8, but not a 48-hour one. It will air late night on Saturday, June 7 (early Sunday) from 1:30am-6am and Sunday, June 8 from 12pm-6pm.
Mad About You and Murphy Brown will also join the TV Land June schedule, as both will move from sister station Nick at Nite to TV Land. Murphy Brown had already once moved over to TV Land and it didn't fair too well. This time TV Land will just air it every night at 3:00am. Mad About You will be its lead-in at 2:30am every night...but Mad About You will also air Monday nights 9-11pm, and have some filler slots after movies and encores of originals from time to time. The show will get a weekend marathon as well, Saturday June 21 (early Sunday) 12:30am-6am and Sunday, June 22 from 9pm-6am.
Other schedule notes include Wings leaving the line-up from weekdays at 7:30am replaced by another slot of Designing Women. And some good news for The Munsters and The Addams Family fans...both shows will continue to air in their weekend airings! They were set to expire after May, but TV Land has renewed them once again. Also, although they haven't aired on the regular schedule for awhile, the Universal library deal (Knight Rider, A-Team, Miami Vice, Simon & Simon) will expire as its contract is up, and TV Land will not renew it.
TV Land premieres new original series She's Got the Look on Wednesday, June 4 for 6 weeks at 10pm. For the first time, TV Land and acclaimed modeling powerhouse Wilhelmina team up to search the country to find the greatest undiscovered models age 35 and older. The aspirants will be flown to New York City to live in a house together where they will face various challenges such as photo shoots and tests on their fashion acumen. Eliminations will occur weekly until the ultimate winner is crowned. Fashion icon and supermodel Kim Alexis is the host. Celebrity stylist Robert Verdi, Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson, and supermodel Beverly Johnson are judges of this six-episode series.
It's awards week on TV Land, as TV Land gets ready for the 6th Annual TV Land Awards on June 15 Beginning Monday, June 9 through Friday, June 13, catch daytime marathons of westerns, Leave it to Beaver, I Love Lucy, Hogan's Heroes and Beverly Hillbillies from 10am-5pm featuring Emmy award winning episodes and actors.
Then on Sunday, June 15 after a seven-hour Andy Griffith Show marathon from 2-9pm, The 6th Annual TV Land Awards show rolls out the red carpet for the biggest shows and the brightest stars of yesterday and today from 9pm-10:30pm, with an immediate encore from 10:30pm-12am. The host is still TBD. So we will announce it when we know. I heard Fran Drescher is in the running. May I suggest Tom Bergeron? Yes, he was never on a classic TV show, but he is a great TV host. Over the years the hosts have gotten worse and worse, although Kelly Ripa was good last year. No one beats John Ritter's hosting on the first awards.
As we mentioned earlier, TV Land is just "Mad About The Buchman's." On Sunday, June 22 TV Land is giving Mad About You the warm TV Land welcome it deserves by dedicating nine solid hours of programming to the lovable couple, their eccentric friends, neurotic family members and even Murray, their dog. Beginning at 9pm, fans of the show will go mad for their all-time favorite episodes as they watch Paul & Jamie tackle obstacles large and small (and usually of their own creation) in the city that never sleeps.
Get "Back in the Saddle" with TV Land on Sunday, June 29 and live your wildest Western dreams vicariously through crazy gunslingers, seasoned cowboys and even inept city slickers. For the fanatical Western-lover, TV Land presents double-headers of Bonanza and Gunsmoke immediately followed by Mel Brooks' infamous Western spoof, Blazing Saddles. Rounding out the afternoon is City Slickers, featuring grit-challenged Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal) who endeavors to fulfill his cowboy fantasies but ends up being taught by veteran ranch hand Curly Washburn (Jack Palance) what it really takes to be one. It's an afternoon packed with eight fantastic hours of Western fun and one that is sure to please even the crustiest cowboy.
TV Land's MovieLand block this month features movies such as Caddyshack, City Slickers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Big Business.

Just a few days ago we mentioned to you all about BET's upcoming marathons. They are still on, but we have a time change for the upcoming Diff'rent Strokes marathon. We mentioned it would be from 8-11pm on Sunday, April 20...well they have added two more hours to it now! It will now start at 6pm and run until 11pm! So we get four extra episodes...such as Kimberly taking a photo of Arnold's behind in "A Case of Overexposure," will the Drummonds get evicted in "Push Comes to Shove?" Arnold is now hall monitor in "Hall Monitor" and former first lady Nancy Reagan guest stars in "The Reporter." For a full list of episodes and times, click HERE!
