Hallmark Channel Removes Happy Days for Dramas; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 29, 2013)



In a last minute scheduling maneuver, The Hallmark Channel is dropping Happy Days from its line-up effective Monday (April 29, 2013). The classic sitcom was airing weekdays in a block from 2-5pm. Replacing the cool-amundo sitcom will be the return of two popular dramas: The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie. The dramas will air weekdays from 2-5pm with The Waltons at 2pm and Little House getting back-to-back hours at 3pm & 4pm. No word yet if and when Happy Days will return, but it is not on the current line-up now. Enjoy its last day (for now?) today. No other schedule changes will be made, which means series like The Brady Bunch (weekdays 5-8pm) will remain. Groovy. If our memory is correct, The Waltons will be airing for the first time since being removed in October while Little House hasn't aired on Hallmark since the end of December, which was a result of the addition of Happy Days/Brady Bunch in January. Stay with us for continued updates and we hope The Fonz and team are back soon, but you can still watch Happy Days on INSP and The Hub at least.


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!
