MeTV Network Acquires Wonder Woman in December; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 2, 2013)

Wonder Woman on Me-TV

The MeTV Network is making the holiday season for classic television fans even more wonderful time of year... with the launch of Wonder Woman! The popular series starring Lynda Carter joins the MeTV Sci-Fi Saturday Night line-up at 8|7c on Saturday, December 28, 2013. All 60 episodes of the original 1970's TV series will be shown on MeTV beginning with a special airing of the pilot episode at 8|7c on Friday, December 27 leading into the series premiere the following day. As a result of the addition, Lost in Space will move to Saturday nights at 12|11c on MeTV effective Saturday, December 28.

Wonder Woman will have the '60s classic Batman as its lead-in at 7|6c. Since Lost in Space is moving to midnight, this will mean Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea will be off the line-up for now. The addition of Wonder Woman is the second acquisition announcement in a week, with H.R. Pufnstuf and Land of the Lost being previewed tonight before officially being added to the schedule on Dec. 28 (the same day as Wonder Woman). Stay with us for continued updates if MeTV adds anything else in the new year!
