What I Like About You Back on ABC Family; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of September 17, 2012)

We have a schedule change! ABC Family has made a change to its fall line-up. Beginning Monday (Sept. 17), the Amanda Bynes/Jennie Garth sitcom What I Like About You returns to ABC Family! The sitcom will air weekdays at 12 noon and 12:30pm ET/PT replacing two episodes of Still Standing. As a result of this change, Still Standing will be off of the line-up. No word on when it will return. As for What I Like About You, it hasn't aired on ABC Family in months. It has been airing on and off since January 2008. The sitcom has also aired on TeenNick, but it hasn't been seen in a while there. This means the series is returning to television after not airing for some months. No other schedule changes are being made on ABC Family and we can expect the schedule that we announced to remain intact.

On What I Like About You, when her widowed father moves to Japan, Holly (Amanda Bynes) is forced to move in with her straight-laced older sister Valerie (Jennie Garth), who's a promising public relations upstart living in Manhattan. It's not long before Holly's antics turn Valerie's regimented life upside down!



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!
For the week of September 17-21, 2012, we have many current sitcom stars and past sitcom stars on TV talk shows! All times listed are Eastern. So get your DVR's (or whatever you use) ready! Ready? Here is all what you need to know for the coming week!
