ION Television August 2010 Has No Family Feud; My Boys Season 3 Marathon In Time for Season 4

ION Television will make some more daytime changes to its schedule in August 2010. The changes actually will start on Monday, July 26, and will see Family Feud leave the line-up. The series currently airs during a weekday two-hour block from 3-5pm. A three-hour block of Ghost Whisperer will air instead from 3-6pm, as Ghost Whisperer was already airing at 5. Ghost Whisperer's 6pm hour will be replaced by Without a Trace, so that series will air weekdays from 6-9pm. Everything else on weekdays will remain the same as it is now.
On weekends, Sundays will now have movies start a bit earlier, so M*A*S*H and My Name is Earl won't have set times anymore and will air anywhere usually from 3-5pm or 3-4:30pm. Whatever happens, Earl will air twice.
ION Television movie premieres for August 2010 are The Fifth Element (1997), The Siege (1998), The Whole Ten Yards (2004), and Ocean's Thirteen (2007). Encore airings for the month are The Pledge, Disclosure, Paycheck, Bloodsport, Cocktail, Running Scared, Elektra, Daredevil, and Men of Honor.

As fans of TBS's comedy series My Boys eagerly await the launch of the fourth season, TBS is offering new and returning viewers a chance to catch up on what happened during the third season. The day before the new season begins, TBS will present a three-hour marathon of the best episodes from last season. The My Boys marathon kicks off Saturday, July 24, at 12:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The fourth season of the series launches Sunday, July 25, with two back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
If you don't know by now, My Boys is a fresh and wry comedy that follows the lives of a Chicago sportswriter and her circle of mostly guy friends. Jordana Spiro stars, along with Kyle Howard, Reid Scott, Michael Bunin, Jamie Kaler and Kellee Stewart. During the fourth season PJ (Spiro) and her boyfriend, Bobby (Howard), get some sobering news about the true financial state of Bobby's family. In addition, the poor economy is putting a dent in Kenny's (Bunin) business, prompting Mike (Kaler) to consider other career opportunities. And as Stephanie (Stewart) prepares to start work on a second book, her first draws the attention of a Hollywood producer.
The episodes airing of TBS's My Boys marathon on Saturday, July 24 from 12:30pm-3:30pm are "Welcome Back Kalla Fotter," "Private Eyes," "Decathlon: Part Deux," "Madder of Degrees," "Facebook the Past," and "Spring Training."
My Boys premiered on TBS in November 2006, quickly scoring high ratings and critical acclaim. It ended that year as ad-supported cable's #1 original sitcom among key adult demos, households and viewers. Last year, the show's third season averaged 1.5 million viewers and 1.1 adults 18-49. The season's average delivery of adults 18-34 (784,000) marked an 11% increase over the prior season.

On a related note, My Boys seasons two and three will be on DVD next week(July 20). Look for our DVD review soon.
