Nick at Nite Acquires How I Met Your Mother, Fresh Prince, Raymond; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 2, 2014)

How I Met Your Mother

Nick at Nite will be adding three new sitcoms to its line-up in the coming months. First up will be a brand new acquisition. Nick at Nite has acquired the non-exclusive rights to How I Met Your Mother. The sitcom will join the Nick at Nite primetime line-up in September. Currently the series airs on Lifetime since Fall 2010, WGN America since Fall 2010 and FX/FXX since Fall 2011. Possibly one or more of those networks will lose the rights come September when Nick at Nite starts airing it. Stay tuned. The second sitcom to launch on Nick at Nite will be The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, as the series will return to Nick at Nite after five years. The Will Smith comedy will be exclusive to Viacom networks come this Fall, as we mentioned, with Nick at Nite starting it in October. It will also be joining sister networks BET/Central this fall, as we know. Currently the series airs on TBS and ABC Family, but they will both lose rights this fall. And finally, the third sitcom to join Nick at Nite will be Everybody Loves Raymond. Sister network TV Land airs the show right now but Nick at Nite will start Raymond in early 2015. It is still too early to tell if it will air on both networks or if it is moving to Nick at Nite. It is possibly a contract renewal since Raymond has been airing on TV Land since March 2010, so we could probably expect it to air on Nick at Nite sometime in the first quarter of 2015. Keep it with us for continued updates on HIMYM, Fresh Prince and Raymond.
