Logo Fall 2013 Schedule with Will & Grace; ABC Family, TV Land Wednesday Sitcoms Post Season Highs for Finales

Will & Grace

We told you that WE tv is bringing the hit sitcom Will & Grace to its line-up this fall, but now Logo will also. In a shared deal with WE tv, Logo will launch the series on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 with an all-day sitcom event from 6am-10pm featuring all three of Logo's off-network sitcoms: Roseanne, The Golden Girls and now Will & Grace. More sitcom fun will air on Sunday, Sept. 22 from 6am-6:30pm with Roseanne and Will & Grace sharing the action. Starting Monday, Sept. 23, Logo will air Will & Grace regularly weekdays from 5-7pm and 11pm-1am. Logo's other sitcoms will still air weekdays, too. Roseanne will air on most weekdays from 2-5pm, while The Golden Girls will air Fridays from 7-11pm and Saturdays from 3-7pm. Will & Grace and Roseanne will air on Saturdays too, with timings varying. The rest of the line-up is filled with reality series and movies, but The L Word and Daria air mostly in late nights or early mornings from time to time. That's all that is really to report for Logo, but stay with us for continued updates.

Same day encore airings in the 1am hour garnered 711,363 total viewers (0.27 A25-54 rating) and 657,009 total viewers (0.26 A25-54 rating).

With the inclusion of three-day DVR playback, the 10pm and the 10:30pm episodes each scored a 1.1 rating in TV Land's target demographic of Adults 25-54, the highest ratings since the live season premiere (Source: Nielsen, 9/4/13, L+3*). Among Women 25-54, the 10pm posted a 1.3 rating and the 10:30pm went up to a 1.4 rating, also the best since the live season premiere in June.
