UP and Hallmark Revise Schedules; ABC Family Adds Extra Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy This Wednesday

Starting today (Monday, June 10) The Waltons is back regularly on UP (formerly known as GMC) replacing Family Ties from 10am-12pm Monday-Friday. The drama was airing in the block previously but Family Ties was slotted in this block last week but looks like the ratings weren't good enough as the veteran '70s drama is back. Family Ties will continue to still air weeknights from 2-3am, though. This was a last minute decision late on Friday, so there are no other schedule changes for UP, so everything else will remain intact. In more news on The Waltons, we have some schedule maneuvers for Hallmark Channel as well that was announced last minute and also begins today. The Waltons get a better slot and an additional hour added, as the series moves to 4pm & 5pm. The drama was airing at 2pm, but now The Brady Bunch is moving to afternoons and will air from 2-4pm leading into The Waltons. As you know, The Brady Bunch was airing 5-8pm, but now The Waltons will take that 5pm hour and Little House on the Prairie once again moves to a prime slot airing weekdays from 6-9pm. Little House on the Prairie was airing in the afternoons from 3-5pm, so now it gains an hour and moves to a better block. Frasier was airing from 8pm-12am, but will now be reduced by an hour to 9pm-12am (with encores from 3-5am still). Everything else remain intact, as Happy Days is still not back on the schedule. Stay with us for continued updates on both UP and Hallmark Channel, as always.


Melissa & Joey

ABC Family is adding an extra all-new episode each for its original sitcoms this Wednesday (June 12), as we first broke on Twitter on Friday. Comedic dancing clip series Dancing Fools is being pulled from the Wednesday schedule beginning this Wednesday at 9pm, so as a result Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy will get an extra episode each for one week only. The sitcoms will still have original episodes in their normal 8:00pm & 8:30pm timeslots, but at 9:00pm another new Baby Daddy episode will air, followed by another new Melissa & Joey at 9:30pm on June 12. Then Wednesdays beginning June 19, encores of Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey will air in the 9pm hour following original episodes in the 8pm hour until July 24 when Spell-Mageddon launches. As for Dancing Fools (which is hosted by Baby Daddy star Melissa Peterman), the series is being moved to Fridays starting this Friday (June 14) at 7:00pm replacing an America's Funniest Home Videos rerun. Then a rerun of Dancing Fools will follow at 7:30pm, followed by encores of Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey in the 8pm hour to create a new Friday night comedy block. Dancing Fools has struggled in the ratings in its first two weeks so ABC Family is quickly moving it to a less pressure night. But we can't wait for double the action on Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy this Wednesday! Stay tuned for any further updates.
