Nick at Nite March 2011; Welcome Back Kotter Reunion at 2011 TV Land Awards

It is a quiet month on Nick at Nite in March 2011, but of course as usual, there is one wall-to-wall marathon week. This month it is George Lopez and it will air Monday, March 7 through Friday, March 11, 2011 from 10pm-6am! That's a 40-hour marathon...so get working with George in late nights after your 40-hour work week! The regular schedule will remain the same but Glenn Martin is not airing anymore it seems. As of last Friday (Feb. 25), Nick at Nite removed the animated comedy from its Friday at 10:30pm slot, replaced by George Lopez. As a result, the Friday 9pm hour will no longer be Everybody Hates Chris and George Lopez, it will now be a full-hour of My Wife & Kids. There is no word on if and when Glenn Martin will return to the schedule. The series still has a handful of new episodes left to air from its 20 episode second season order, so it possibly will return soon to air those episodes.
Fridays at 9pm for two weeks in March will have two movie premieres, though. On Friday, March 18 from 9pm-11:30pm it is the Nick at Nite premiere of Ghostbusters (1984)! And on Friday, March 25 from 9pm-11pm, it is the premiere of Baby's Day Out, which was preempted on Feb. 27, so it will make its premiere on March 25.
That's about it for Nick at Nite March 2011, so view the schedule and discuss the month!

TV Land announced that Golden Globe(R) winner and two-time Academy Award(R) nominee John Travolta will reunite with the cast of Welcome Back, Kotter at the 2011 TV Land Awards. The network will salute the beloved sitcom -- set in Brooklyn, NY -- with the 35th Anniversary Award at this year's show taping in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Sunday, April 10 and airing on TV Land on Sunday, April 17, 2011 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Travolta will reunite with co-stars Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Ron Palillo and Marcia Strassman -- with more cast members to be announced -- to accept the 35th Anniversary Award for the popular edgy sitcom which ran from 1975-1979 on ABC.
Welcome Back, Kotter ran for five seasons and revolved around an inner-city high school teacher, Mr. Kotter (Gabe Kaplan) who returns to his alma mater to teach a new generation of under-achieving misfits nicknamed the "Sweathogs." As a former "Sweathog" himself, Kotter uses his own life experiences to try and get through to this misunderstood group led by wisecracking Vinnie Barbarino (Travolta). The talented cast is rounded out by Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as Freddie "Boom Boom" Washington, Ron Palillo as Arnold Horshack, Robert Hegyes as Juan Epstein and Marcia Strassman as Mr. Kotter's wife, Julie.
Now in its ninth year, the 2011 TV Land Awards pays tribute to classic and contemporary luminaries of television, music and movies. The ninety-minute telecast will feature exhilarating musical performances and will reunite some of the most iconic celebrity TV casts. Previously announced honorees include Regis Philbin (Legend Award), Family Ties (Fan Favorite Award) and The Cosby Show (Impact Award).
Stay tuned for more TV Land Awards announcements and also stay with us for TV Land April 2011 schedule and highlights sometime next week!
