It's that time of year again...fall 2010 schedules for New York City stations! I have for you the full schedules for WNYW, WWOR and WPIX. Unfortunately, I couldn't obtain the schedules for WABC, WCBS, and WNBC at press time, but they rarely make changes and we have info on new shows coming to those stations still. Independent WLNY's schedule also is not known at this time.
We'll start with WNYW's (Fox5) Fall 2010 schedule. New series this fall are Swift Justice with Nancy Grace airing back-to-back at 2pm & 2:30pm starting Sept. 13 and True Hollywood Story will air Sunday nights at 1am starting Sept. 26.

Also, leaving the line-up totally will be Saved by the Bell (Saturdays 7am) starting Sept. 25 and American Idol Rewind (Saturday & Sunday nights at 1am) starting Sept. 26. Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition will replace Saved by the Bell on Saturdays at 7am. American Latino and Latination will air Saturday nights in the 1am hour coming from sister network WWOR.
Sister network WWOR (My9) will be making more changes than WNYW in Fall 2010.

Classic TV wise, The Honeymooners remain late nights on Sunday nights, while The Odd Couple will lead into Frasier on late Friday night/early Saturday morning at 4am. The Jeffersons airs as filler from time to time. Star Trek: The Next Generation remains weeknights at 3am. And WPIX News at 6 returns to weekends only, airing at 6pm leading into Friends.
Elsewhere, WABC (ABC7) will air Brothers and Sisters on late Saturday nights after the news at about 12:05am due to college football. LOST will have its final airing on October 3 and Grey's Anatomy remains on WABC Sunday nights at 11:35am & 12:35am. For WCBS (CBS2), Criminal Minds and NUMB3RS will replace CSI: NY and CSI: Miami on weekends after the news. And WNBC (NBC4) will make the most drastic changes of the big three stations, with Martha Stewart Show moving to Hallmark, they will air the new series Access Hollywood Live at 11am starting Sept. 13. With The Bonnie Hunt Show canceled, they will now air Real Housewives at 2pm leading into The Nate Berkus Show at 3pm replacing Deal Or No Deal. As we mentioned, we don't have any details on WLNY-55. They will lose LOST on October 4, though, as it leaves local syndication after two seasons. The series finale will air the weekend of Oct. 3-4 on all stations airing the program.
