MTV2 Adds Family Matters; CBS Sitcoms Free Frozen Yogurt Promotion at Yogurtland

Family Matters

Viacom-owned MTV2 has quietly added Family Matters to its line-up as of last week. The sitcom is still airing on BET, which is also owned by Viacom. Family Matters is airing most weeknights from 2-4am in the late night, while BET is airing the series in the mornings/early afternoons. The hit '90s sitcom will join other '90s favorites such as Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Saved by the Bell, Boy Meets World, Martin, The Wayans Bros., In Living Color and Smart Guy. Most of these air regularly on weekdays, such as Sabrina weekdays from 9am-12pm and Saved by the Bell from 12-2pm. Martin airs in the late night from 12-2am, while In Living Color, The Wayans Bros. and Smart Guy are on weekends mainly. The network also airs The PJ's from time to time, while Living Single has been removed.

The series of course is about The Winslows, a middle-class suburban Chicago black family may seem like a normal family but with the additions of a sister, her son, Carl's mother and one nerdy neighbor there is never a dull moment in this household. Stay with us for continued updates and to see if MTV2 will be adding anything else later this fall?




Here's the "scoop." CBS is teaming up with Yogurtland on a sweet three-tier fall promotion for the network's eight comedy series that will kick off tomorrow. From Friday, Sept. 13 through Monday, Sept. 30, select Yogurtland locations in several major cities will offer CBS comedy series-inspired frozen yogurt flavors and store-wide branding, marking Yogurtland's first in-store takeover by a television network. On Premiere Monday (Sept. 23) the same participating Yogurtland shops will provide free frozen yogurt from Noon to 6:00 PM. All Yogurtland shops throughout the country will accept CBS comedy-branded coupons for a free first five ounces of frozen yogurt on Monday, Sept. 23. Coupons can be accessed/printed via CBS' comedy series' Facebook pages and Yogurtland's official Facebook page. This fall will be more appetizing than ever for CBS comedy fans. With CBS's largest number of comedies since its 1997-1998 schedule, its Comedy's Best Season.
