Antenna TV Launch Schedule Changes; Centric Adds Sister Sister and The Unit

We are only 5 days away from the Antenna TV launch on Jan. 1! The launch weekend will remain the same but Antenna TV has made some schedule changes to its regular line-up for early weekday afternoons and Sunday mornings. Why? Sony Pictures Television could not get all of the tapes of the rare series to Antenna TV in time for launch. Also, some episodes are not acceptable copies and they are waiting for them to get remastered. The rest are rare Sony shows that are still on film and they don't have most of the episodes ready yet. As soon as they are ready, they will be placed on the schedule at a later date. Shows affected are: Burns & Allen, The Farmer's Daughter, Showcase '39, All-Star Theatre, Circus Boy, The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok and Iron Horse. Thus, since most of the episodes for these are not ready, they will not be on the launch schedule but as I said, they will be placed on the line-up as soon they get a good amount of episodes on tape.
Starting next week, Jan. 3, weekdays from 1pm-4pm has changed from the original plan as well as Sundays from 7am-1pm. Weekdays in the 1:00pm hour will now be Father Knows Best not originally scheduled Burns & Allen. At 2:00pm, Dennis the Menace is now scheduled instead of Hazel. At 2:30pm another Dennis the Menace will air instead of The Farmer's Daughter. At 3:00pm Hazel is on instead of Father Knows Best. And at 3:30pm we get another Hazel instead of Dennis the Menace. To recap the weekday 1pm-4pm changes, Farmer's Daughter and Burns & Allen are no longer scheduled and we get more Father Knows Best, Hazel and Dennis the Menace. The rest of the weekday schedule that was originally planned will remain intact.
As mentioned, Sundays 7am-1pm will also change starting Jan. 9. Another block of The Three Stooges will air from 7am-10am replacing an hour each of Showcase 39, All-Star Theatre, and Circus Boy. From 10am-1pm we get an hour each of Father Knows Best, Dennis the Menace and Hazel as they will now also air on Sundays now! This means The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok and Iron Horse are not premiering. We will let you know when those three, and also the two sitcoms on weekdays, will premiere as soon we get the information! Fans of Father Knows Best, Dennis the Menace and Hazel are certainly happy though, as they are now getting much more airtime! Stay with us as usual for further information!
Keep on discussing Antenna TV on our message board!

Centric will make some schedule changes beginning next week. After having a special Christmas Day marathon, Sister Sister will now join the regular schedule on Jan. 3. Sister Sister has been airing on and off on sister network BET. It also currently airs on the cable network GMC every Saturday morning/afternoon. The sitcom starring Tia & Tamera Mowry, will air weekdays at 12:00pm & 12:30pm. Leading into Sister Sister will be the Centric premiere of the 2003 reality series Starting Over at 11am.
There are other schedule changes as well, such as The Unit joining the schedule airing weekdays in the early hour of 5am, following The A-Team at 4am. Miami Vice remains at 6am, along with another The A-Team at 7am. Among the other changes include another hour of In Living Color being added, weekdays in the 5pm hour and another hour of The A-Team weekdays at 11pm.
To recap, weekdays looks like this: Miami Vice at 6am, The A-Team at 7am, Centric Hits from 8am-10am, Soul Train at 10am, Starting Over at 11am, back-to-back episodes of Sister Sister, The Steve Harvey Show, and The Cosby Show from 12pm-3pm. Then from 3pm-5pm, we still have the Flick Centric movie, followed by back-to-back episodes of In Living Color at 5pm. At 6pm, it is an encore of The Steve Harvey Project, followed by back-to-back episodes of The Jamie Foxx Show and The Cosby Show from 7-9pm leading into an original episode of The Steve Harvey Project at 9pm. The 10pm hour remains In Living Color, with The A-Team now at 11pm, and more The Jamie Foxx Show in the 12am hour. The Cosby Show remains in the 1am hour, but now the Flick Centric movie starts at 2am leading into The A-Team and The Unit from 4-6am.
Weekends will have mostly marathons or stunts with some regular airings such as Sister Sister, The Cosby Show, In Living Color, and The Jamie Foxx Show airing in early evening, primetime and/or late night.

We apologize for the delay today in posting today's blog, as we were buried in the blizzard (or snow-icane, whatever you want to call it). 31.8 inches reported in my area!
