TV Land August 2010 Has The Nanny Join; ION Television Sees Strong Ratings for 2nd Quarter

August 2010 sees an addition of a new sitcom on TV Land, as The Nanny joins the line-up. The series will be borrowed from sister network Nick at Nite. We will let you know if it will continue on Nick at Nite as well, as soon as we get their August schedule. Perhaps by fall The Nanny will be gone from Nick at Nite as My Wife & Kids joins the schedule? Stay tuned. Anyway, back to TV Land August, The Nanny joins the schedule on Monday, Aug. 2 with a week-long marathon! The flashy girl from Flushing comes to TV Land in a week long star-studded marathon featuring the biggest guest stars and best episodes from the series' run. Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Collins, Billy Ray Cyrus, Celine Dion and even Liz Taylor are just a few of the friends Nanny Fine has coming along for the fun all week-long. Don't miss the craziness of this marathon from Monday to Friday from 6pm-9pm & 11pm-2am and if that's not enough, get even more of The Nanny marathon on the weekend (Saturday 12pm-9pm and Sunday 1pm-10pm). And don't miss Nanny Fine when she settles into her regular 8pm & 1am hour timeslots weeknights beginning Monday, August 9, 2010!
So what else will change by Aug. 9? Due to The Nanny airing in the 8pm hour, The Cosby Show goes from 8-9pm to 7-8pm and Sanford & Son goes from 7-8pm to 6-7pm, replacing All in the Family. That means All in the Family will only be morning now from 9-10am. In the late night, The Nanny will air in the 1am hour, so The Cosby Show is shifted to 2-3am, Home Improvement is shifted to 3-4am, and Three's Company from 4-5am.
On the weekends, The Nanny gets various weekend blocks on different times, mainly Saturday afternoons. It also gets a late night hour on weekends airing from 2:30am-3am, shifting Home Improvement to 3:30am & 4am, and cutting Three's Company to 4:30am-6am. Everything else remains the same on weekends and the rest of the schedule as well.
TV Land will have the season finale of Hot in Cleveland on Wednesday, Aug. 18 at 10pm. Episode titles for the month are "The Play's the Thing" on Aug. 4, "Good Luck Faking the Goiter" on Aug. 11, and "Tornado" on Aug. 18. Hot in Cleveland revolves around three fabulous L.A. women of a certain age who are best friends (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick, and Betty White). Their lives are changed forever when their plane – headed for Paris – unexpectedly lands in Cleveland and they soon rediscover themselves in a new "promised land." Loving their new home, the women find themselves living under one roof and battling the sassy caretaker of the property they have rented, played by the inimitable Betty White.
The third season of TV Land's hit original series She's Got The Look premieres the following week on Wednesday, Aug. 25 at 10pm and is back to discover the next supermodel over the age of 35, hosted by Brooke Burke (Dancing with the Stars). The contenders will live in a house together and participate in weekly challenges to see who has what it takes to have "The Look." The winner will receive $100,000, a contract with the world-famous Wilhelmina Modeling Agency and a spread in SELF magazine. Emmy Award-Winner Allison Grodner returns as executive producer and has teamed up with executive producer Rich Meehan in their first project together under their new banner, Fly On The Wall Entertainment.
TV Land Monday movies for the month are Big, Top Gun, Turner & Hooch, Three Men And A Baby, Twelve Angry Men, and the premiere of The Client. View the complete TV Land August 2010 schedule and highlights and also discuss your thoughts!
