VH1 Adds Sitcoms in Mornings; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 7, 2015)

My Wife & Kids

VH1 has quietly added sitcoms to its weekday morning lineup. The sitcoms are sitcoms that air on other Viacom-owned networks. Airing Tues-Fri from 6am to 12pm. The schedule normally is like this: My Wife & Kids from 6am-8am, The Jamie Foxx Show from 8-10am and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from 10am-12pm. On Fridays it could vary from this a bit. These are the only comedies airing on the network. You can find My Wife & Kids also on Centric, The Jamie Foxx Show now on CMT and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on BET and Nick at Nite. And these shows have aired on other Viacom networks before, too...but now watch them every morning on VH1!


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
