Spike TV April 2010 Has 'The Unit'; Brady Bunch Special Collection at Illinois State University; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of March 22, 2010)

Spike TV will be adding reruns of The Unit starting April 5, 2010. The action series will air weekdays at 6pm. Spike TV is obtaining it from sister Viacom network BET, which has aired the series since November but it seems it didn't do well for them in the ratings. Recently it was airing late nights on Saturdays, but it seems even that is gone now. The Unit will also continue to air on MyNetwork TV in primetime on Wednesday nights and on cable on Sleuth (in marathon blocks), in addition to now airing on Spike TV.
In other Spike TV April 2010 schedule news, CSI: NY will now air weekdays from 9am-12pm, followed by the original CSI from 12pm-4pm, followed by originals, then The Unit at 6pm. A mix of originals, CSI and The Unit is at 7pm. In late night, CSI is on some nights at 1am (original encores other nights), 2am now has a mix of Star Trek: Voyager and The Shield, with Unsolved Mysteries moving to 3am but sharing the hour on some nights with Disorderly Conduct: Video on Patrol.

"The Brady Bunch Special Collection" is now at the University Archives at Illinois State University Milner Library in Normal, Illinois.
The Collection was created in January 2010 by Susan Olsen (who played Cindy Brady) and her creative partner Ted Nichelson, when they donated an extensive array of Brady Bunch artifacts which include photographs, slides, scripts, newspaper clippings, magazines, scenic designs, and relevant memorabilia.
The Illinois State University Archives and Special Collections is one of the leading archival institutions in the United States and houses more the 35,000 items. Susan has already donated many items such as letters, scripts, clippings, photos, schedules, audio tapes, etc. The Brady Bunch has had a monumental role in shaping American pop culture and this Collection will ensure that its legacy endures long into the future. They would like to develop an authoritative archive devoted to the Bradys. Fans can contribute to this collection as well. Contact Toni Tucker at the university if you have any items to contribute! Groovy!

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
For the week of March 22-26, 2010, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
