The Hub Acquires The Facts of Life, Mork & Mindy, Sabrina for April 2012; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of March 5, 2012)




The Facts of Life

The Hub had its upfront presentation yesterday and the big highlight for us was the acquisition of three sitcoms for its primetime sitcom block! The Hub announced the acquisitions of the popular classic TV sitcoms The Facts of Life, Mork & Mindy and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. All three series are currently not airing anywhere, as Sabrina was last seen on ABC Family in early 2011. Mork & Mindy was last seen in marathons on Syfy from about 2008-2011 from time to time. And The Facts of Life has not been on US cable since Nick at Nite and marathons on TV Land a decade ago.

Mork & Mindy

The three sitcoms will join the line-up tentatively in April. More info will come in the coming weeks, so stay with us, as we can't release it yet. What will happen to the current sitcoms (Family Ties, The Wonder Years, Doogie Howser, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Batman)? Will some leave or will they all stay? You'll have to come on back for the actual schedule. View The Hub upfront press release.

Sabrina, the Teenage Witch

Also of note, The Hub will premiere the all-new, action-packed series The Aquabats! Super Show! on Saturday, March 3 (11 a.m. ET, with encore performances throughout the week). The outrageous new series follows a popular alternative rock band as they embark on a never-ending quest to right wrongs, destroy boredom and seek justice for all in an inventive blend of live-action and animated crime-fighting spoofs. It is said to be The Monkees meets '60s Batman. Sounds campy!

Stay tuned on Monday for our story on the Antenna TV spring line-up that begins March 26 and that will have the addition of WKRP in Cincinnati to the Sunday night primetime line-up starting April 8, as we first broke.


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, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
