Lifetime Makes Midday & Late Night Changes; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 1, 2010)

If you didn't see our message board post yesterday, Lifetime is making some midday and late night changes beginning Monday (Nov. 1). Weekdays in the 11am hour will now an episode each of Old Christine and How I Met Your Mother, both replacing Wife Swap. This means Old Christine will air three times in a row in the mornings (10am-11:30am), in addition to its evening hour of 6-7pm. Wife Swap will now move to weekdays at 12 noon, replacing two Airline episodes as that series is now off the schedule. Everything else in the afternoon is the same as it is now. In late nights, we also get a change. The 12-1:30am block will now be a triple shot of Frasier, while 1:30am-2:30am will be back-to-back Will & Grace. So if you're keeping score at home, Frasier is now 9-10am weekdays and 12am-1:30am Mon-Thurs. Will & Grace is now weekdays 8-9am, 1:30am Mon-Thurs, 2:00am weekdays. And How I Met Your Mother is now weekdays 11:30am, Mon-Wed/Fri 7-8pm and 11pm-12am Mon-Thurs.


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
