Cloo Classics Brings '70s Sitcoms on Mondays; CBS Renews Two and a Half Men for Season 11, Plus Pick Ups for NBC and CW

Cloo

Cloo (formerly known as Sleuth) is bringing back Cloo Classics and airing them as a weekly block. Effective today (Monday, April 29), Cloo will be airing sitcoms and MacGyver every Monday. They announced the change last Friday (April 19), but we wanted to get you more information first before we announced it. Happy Days is airing 6am-7am ET and 12pm-1pm ET, replacing Charlie's Angels. Then Laverne & Shirley is added 7am-8am ET and 11am-12pm ET, also replacing Charlie's Angels. From 8-9am ET, The Odd Couple will air leading into Taxi from 9-10am ET. And the final sitcom will be Mork & Mindy from 10am-11am ET. All of this is replacing Charlie's Angels. Then the rest of the day is MacGyver Mondays with an extension from 1pm-6am ET (it was only airing 11pm-6am ET before), replacing Charlie's Angels and Monk. Yes, this means Charlie's Angels will not be airing regularly anymore on Cloo, but you can still watch it on sister network Universal HD. This isn't the last we'll see the Angels on Cloo, though, because there is a 24-hour marathon scheduled for Saturday, June 22 starting at 6am.

Back to the Cloo Classics comedies, all of these have aired in marathon blocks before but now they will be airing regularly on Mondays. One sitcom that they have aired before is missing though: Get Smart. Not to worry, in late June Cloo will be airing Get Smart Friday mornings at 6:00am & 6:30am beginning June 21, replacing an hour of Monk. The rest of the week from 6-7am will also be sitcoms replacing Monk. Tuesdays will have Laverne & Shirley beginning June 18 from 6-7am. Wednesdays will have Taxi beginning June 19 from 6-7am. And Thursdays will have The Odd Couple beginning June 20 from 6-7am. Mondays will of course be the Cloo Classics block as we mentioned. The block will be preempted on May 27 and June 10 though for previously scheduled marathons of Royal Pains and Burn Notice. On Saturdays from 6-7am we still have the random airings of 'Til Death, if you're wondering. That's all we have right now, stay with us for continued updates and enjoy Cloo Classics every Monday with your favorite '70s sitcoms and MacGyver!


two and a Half Men

CBS has picked-up an 11th season of Two and a Half Men. CBS officially announced it via Twitter on Friday. The return of this sitcom will be at least the 19th series coming back to CBS next season (2013-14), joining the final season of How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI, Person of Interest, Elementary, Hawaii Five-0, The Mentalist, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Undercover Boss, 48 Hours Mystery and 60 Minutes. The fate of series like Criminal Minds, Rules of Engagement, Golden Boy, Vegas and CSI: NY are still up in the air. Maybe one or two of those will return, as Criminal Minds is probably the most likely one to return. Back to Two and a Half Men, no word if this is the final season or not, but all three stars will return but Angus T. Jones will be moved to recurring.

At NBC, they have announced the renewal of five key drama series for the 2013-14 season: Revolution, Chicago Fire, Parenthood, Grimm and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. All have been given full 22-episode orders. The fate of everything else is still to be determined, including comedies Parks & Recreation and Community, while long running comedies The Office and 30 Rock have been ended. Meanwhile, The CW Network has given early pickups to three additional dramas for next season, including the first new series order of the season with The Originals,a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries, which was introduced during last week's episode. The network also gave advance orders for the second season of Beauty and the Beast and the third season of Hart of Dixie. The CW already picked-up Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural back in February for 2013-14. Series that are still in limbo for The CW include Nikita, The Carrie Diaries and America's Next Top Model (though season 20 is scheduled for summer for the latter), while 90210 is canceled.
