FamilyNet Fall 2011 Schedule Part II With Sitcoms Like Mr. Belvedere; The Parkers Returns to BET

Last month we gave you FamilyNet's Fall 2011 schedule that started Sept. 1, but that was just part one! Part two will begin on Saturday, Oct. 1 and sitcoms will join the line-up beginning Monday, Oct. 3! The weekday line-up from 4pm-1am will get a makeover! 20th Century Fox series, including sitcoms, dramas and even a game show will be coming! The '80s classic Mr. Belvedere makes its first regular appearance in years airing weekdays at 4pm and 8pm! Belvedere last aired during a Christmas episodes marathon in 2009 on sister network ALN. Other than that, Belvedere hasn't been seen since it aired on FoxNet (for markets who didn't have a Fox affiliate) over a decade ago. It has never to my knowledge ever aired on a cable network, so this will be the first time. Back to the FamilyNet schedule, the classic sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show will air weekdays at 4:30pm & 8:30pm. The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart will follow from 5-6pm and 9-10pm. Mary Tyler Moore & Bob Newhart Show currently air on digital network MeTV, but they were last on cable on FamilyNet's sister network ALN from 2007-09, along with Newhart. Another former ALN series, the drama Remington Steele will follow weekdays at 6pm and 10pm.
FamilyNet has also acquired the rights to the recently canceled game show Don't Forget the Lyrics! airing it weekdays 7-8pm and 3-4am. It will also air Saturdays at 5:30pm. Current series airing in weekdays The New Flipper, Lost in Space and Lou Grant will be leaving the line-up. Now the series they added in September will still remain in October as well. I Spy, the Robert Culp-Bill Cosby '60s series will air weekdays at 8am ET still but the 1am ET will move to 11pm ET after Remington Steele. The fun series will still air Saturdays at 3pm and late night on Sundays at 2am. Half-hour series The Lone Wolf from the '50s will air weekdays at 6:30am and British series The Saint from the '60s will air weekdays in the 7am ET and 12am ET hours, paired with I Spy. Canadian series The Beachcombers will remain weekdays in the 3pm ET hour and The New Zorro, which ran from 1990-93, will continue to air Saturdays at 4-5pm ET.
View the FULL FamilyNet Fall 2011 schedule. Stay tuned for any further updates on FamilyNet, as we are certainly happy that sitcoms have returned to the network. Sister network AmericanLife Network (ALN) will be rebranding and changing their name on Sept. 19. We still cannot reveal what the name is yet so you'll have to stay with us! We can tell you they will be adding some classic series programming again! Stay tuned!

Last Thursday we mentioned a BET sitcom stunt happening on Saturday, Oct. 1 from a sitcom that last aired on BET in 2008. That is still happening, but the series will join the schedule now starting TODAY (Tuesday, Sept. 6)! So we will reveal that series right now. The sitcom The Parkers will return to BET and air weekdays in the 11am ET hour replacing an hour of The Jamie Foxx Show, which remains at noon. The Parkers will also air weekdays in the 5pm ET hour and BET will begin with season three episodes. "Heeyyy!" The marathon that we hinted last week is indeed The Parkers and will air Saturday, Oct. 1 from 8am-8pm. The Parkers aired on UPN from 1999-2004 and was a spin-off of Moesha that starred Mo'Nique and Countess Vaughn.
We are not revealing the BET Fall 2011 schedule yet, because they have a new series joining the line-up in October. We will reveal what that is soon, but we can tell you that they have never aired the series before! Also, we will reveal sister network Centric's Fall 2011 schedule soon, too. Stay with us!
