TBS Fall 2015 Schedule Part 1 with New Girl; Carol Burnett Will Be Honored at 2016 SAG Awards

New Girl

As we mentioned already many moons ago that TBS has acquired the rights to New Girl and 2 Broke Girls for Fall 2015. New Girl will be shared with Viacom's MTV and we will have details on that show on MTV at a later date. Back to TBS, they will premiere New Girl with a 24-hour marathon on Sunday, Aug. 16 (early Monday) at 1am and will run through Monday, Aug. 17 1pm before settling into its regular timeslot of weekdays at 3pm & 3:30pm, as Friends moves from 3-5pm to 4-6pm and Seinfeld gets cut to 6-8pm (rather than 5-8pm). No other changes will be made during this time. On Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 7), TBS will offer mini-marathons of The Office from 6am-12pm and Friends from 12pm-6pm. As for 2 Broke Girls, the sitcom will premiere in primetime in mid-September...but we will have details on that at a later date as everything gets finalized. Stay tuned, but for now get ready for Zooey Deschanel and gang on TBS!

New Girl stars the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Zooey Deschanel as Jess, a smart and spirited woman navigating her way through the highs and lows of modern friendship and romance with her male roommates (Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Damon Wayans Jr.) and best friend (Hannah Simone).


Carol Burnett

Carol Burnett – comedic trailblazer, actor, singer, dancer, producer and author – has been named the 52nd recipient of SAG-AFTRA's highest tribute: the SAG Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment. Burnett will be presented the performers union's top accolade at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016 at 8PM ET/7PM CT/6PM MT/5PM PT. Given annually to an actor who fosters the "finest ideals of the acting profession," the SAG Life Achievement Award will join Burnett's exceptional catalog of preeminent industry and public honors, which includes multiple Emmys®, a special Tony®, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and both a Kennedy Center Honor and its Mark Twain Prize for Humor. The public and her peers treasure Carol Burnett for her comedic and dramatic roles on television, film, and Broadway, most notably The Carol Burnett Show. Named in 2007 by TIME magazine as one of "100 Best Television Shows of All Time," and by Variety in 2011 as one of "The 25 Shows That Changed Television," The Carol Burnett Show ran for 11 years, averaged 30 million viewers per week, and received 25 Emmy Awards, making it one of the most honored shows in television history.
