Nick at Nite Ends Chris Marathon Early; ABC 2010 Season Finale Dates; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 12, 2010)

Nick at Nite has been airing a week-long Everybody Hates Chris marathon from 10pm-6am all week since Monday (April 5), but they have pulled the event for tonight (Friday, April 9). Maybe the ratings weren't as good as their normal schedule? Anyway, airing tonight now will be the normal Friday line-up, but 2-5am will be an expanded block of Family Matters and not Everybody Hates Chris from 2-4am as usual on Friday nights. However, Everybody Hates Chris will still air tonight in the 9pm hour.
There are some additional one-time changes for the rest of the weekend, too. On Saturday (April 10), Everybody Hates Chris will air in the 9pm hour instead of Nickelodeon programming. The Nanny will be expanded to 10pm-1am, replacing an hour of George Lopez from 10-11pm. The 3am hour of Everybody Hates Chris will be replaced Family Matters, which will air 3-5am on the night. Chris will remain the 2am hour, though. And then on Sunday (April 11), George Lopez is expanded to 9-11pm, replacing the 9pm hour of Everybody Hates Chris. Airing from 11pm-2am will be The Nanny, as it is expanded and replacing an hour of Malcolm in the Middle from 1-2am on this night. Finally, 2-5am will be another expanded Family Matters, as Everybody Hates Chris is preempted in the 2am hour.
Strange schedule changes, but as of now they are for this weekend only. View these changes in a list form.
