Tr3s Rebrands, Adds George Lopez; ABC Fall 2010 Schedule Premiere Dates; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of July 12, 2010)

On Monday (July 12), "MTV Tr3s" will become "Tr3s" and the name "MTV Tr3s" will no longer be used. Tr3s will continue to celebrate the bi-lingual/bi-cultural reality that embraces the three aspects of Latino life in the US - Latin American, American and US Latino.
Tr3s will air sitcoms and Spanish series along with Nickelodeon blocks that teens will enjoy past seasons of Nickelodeon favorites in Spanish. Tr3s' biggest addition will the be the addition of sitcom George Lopez! The series will be borrowed from sister network Nick at Nite, and will air weeknights at 9pm & 9:30pm on Tr3s. Leading into George will be Casados Con Hijos, an adaptation of Married... with Children, at 8pm & 8:30pm. Casados Con Hijos will also air weekdays at 3pm & 3:30pm. Also of note, Comedy Central's Mind of Mencia will air weeknights at 12 midnight, followed by Team Sanchez at 12:30am. Nickelodeon's series will air in Spanish are Blues Clues weekdays at 8am & 8:30am and Wonder Pets weekdays at 9am & 9:30am. SpongeBob SquarePants will air in Spanish on Sunday mornings from 8am-10am.
Discuss this rebranding and the addition of George Lopez here.

ABC announced most of their Fall premiere dates for the 2010-2011 season. Premiere dates for Fall Friday drama series Body of Proof and Friday reality series Secret Millionaire will be announced at a later time. As previously announced, Saturday Night Football premieres Saturday, September 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET. ABC launches the 2010-2011 season on Monday, Sept. 20 during premiere week with the season premieres of Dancing with the Stars from 8-10pm and Castle at 10pm. On Tuesday, Sept. 21, a special two-hour performance show of Dancing with the Stars will air from 8-10pm leading into the series premiere of drama Detroit 1-8-7. On Wednesday, Sept. 22, ABC returns their comedies with "Laugh on Wednesday" with the season premiere and a new time for The Middle at 8pm, followed by the series premiere of Better with You (formerly titled Better Together) at 8:30pm, the season premiere of megahit Modern Family is at 9pm, and the season premiere of quirky Cougar Town is at 9:30pm.
