TV Land April 2011 Schedule; Fox, NBC Season Finale Dates for April/May 2011

Yesterday we told you about CSI joining the weekend line-up on TV Land for the rest of March, now we have the TV Land April 2011 schedule for you. As of now, CSI is not on the April schedule, however this April schedule was made before the changes made yesterday to weekends in March with CSI. This means the regular weekend schedule will return in April, for now at least. Stay with us for further updates.
TV Land is excited to air ENCORES of the second season of smash hit original sitcom Hot in Cleveland starting March 30 every Wednesday back-to-back in the 10pm hour. The mid-season finale is March 23. The rest of April remains the same but we do have some awards shows. We mentioned in the March highlights that on April 2, TV Land will air The Best of the American Comedy Awards: A Retrospective of Past Award Shows from 1987-2001, but there is more. The first The Comedy Awards will air on Sunday, April 10 from 9-11pm ET on many Viacom networks. Laugh out loud with TV Land as they simulcast The Comedy Awards in partnership with Comedy Central and sister networks Spike TV, VH1, CMT, Logo, and Nick at Nite! The inaugural award show is set to honor all things humor, recognizing some of the funniest names in film and television today. Hot in Cleveland star Betty White is just one of the hilarious and talented nominees selected by The Comedy Board of Directors, a hysterical group that includes Ray Romano, Joan Rivers, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, and Don Rickles among others. And of course there is the annual TV Land Awards. Start spreading the news: This year the TV Land Awards are on the move to fabulous New York City! For the first time in the show's history the red carpet will roll out in the greatest city in the world, with honorees including New York native Regis Philbin, as well as reunions of the casts of both The Cosby Show and Family Ties. A Welcome Back, Kotter reunion will also be featured with John Travolta on hand even. A special one-hour block of Everybody Loves Raymond kicks off the festivities at 8pm on Sunday, April 17. Then join TV Land as they take a bite out of the Big Apple at 9pm and then be sure to stay tuned for the TV Land Awards 2011: All Access post-show at 10:30pm, only on TV Land! The TV Land Awards will encore Monday, April 18 at 9pm and Sunday, April 24 at 9am as well.
Other than that, it is quiet at TV Land in April 2011. View our TV Land April 2011 schedule and highlights, and remember to stay tuned if CSI is indeed inserted into April as well.

Thursday, May 5 will have the season finale of Perfect Couples at 8:30pm and 30 Rock at 10pm. Community wraps its season the following week with a special one-hour episode from 8-9pm on May 12. Outsourced will wrap up its season later that night at 10:30pm following two all-new episodes of Parks and Recreation, which will end with two more episodes the following week on May 19 but from 10-11pm. The Office will ends its season with a one-hour episode as well on May 19 from 9-10pm.

In addition, NBC's Emmy Award-winning comedy 30 Rock (Thursdays, 10 p.m. ET) celebrates its 100th episode with a special one-hour edition on Thursday, April 21 from 10-11 p.m. ET. 30 Rock celebrates its 100th episode as "TGS," the show-within-the-show, faces the prospect that its 100th episode may be its last. A new corporate boss, a star in hiding, and a mind-altering gas leak may doom America's fourth-favorite Friday night sketch comedy show. Also, Steve Carrell says goodbye on The Office on Thursday, April 28 at 9 p.m. ET.
