Roseanne That '70s Show

LAFF, the country's first-ever, over-the-air broadcast television network devoted to comedy around-the-clock, added to its lineup of the most popular and biggest EMMY-winning sitcoms in contemporary television acquiring the broadcast television rights to five hit series from Carsey-Werner Productions. In the multi-year licensing agreements announced today, LAFF acquires: Roseanne (Nine seasons, 222 episodes), That '70s Show (Eight seasons, 200 eps), 3rd Rock from the Sun (Six seasons, 139 eps), Grounded for Life (Five seasons, 91 eps) and Cybill (Four seasons, 87 eps). There is no set timeframe on when they will launch on the network just yet. As of now, they are not slated thru end of May. LAFF currently airs The Drew Carey Show, Spin City, Empty Nest, Ellen, The Bernie Mac Show, Night Court and Carsey-Werner's Grace Under Fire. The network is closing in on its first anniversary this week (April 15). Stay with us for continued updates as these five sitcoms join the line-up. Will any of the current sitcoms be leaving? You'll have to stay tuned!


The Brady Bunch

Groovy! The Brady Bunch is coming to Logo starting this morning! It will air five days a week every morning starting at 9am following I Dream of Jeannie (starting at 6am). The Brady Bunch will vary from day to day, as sometimes it will air thru 6pm and some days thru 1pm. Roseanne, The Nanny, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Designing Women, and Samantha Who? are the other sitcoms still on the line-up with this new addition. The Brady Bunch currently also airs on The MeTV Network, but hasn't been on cable lately, as TV Land aired it last in 2015. Prior to TV Land, The Brady Bunch was briefly on The Hallmark Channel. Stay with us for continued updates on The Brady Bunch on Logo.
