Brady Bunch, Home Improvement Back on Hallmark Channel Weekdays; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 29, 2016)

The Brady Bunch Home Improvement

The Hallmark Channel has brought back The Brady Bunch and Home Improvement to its weekday schedule. 4 episodes each of the sitcoms are airing from 2-6pm, with The Brady Bunch from 2-4pm and Home Improvement from 4-6pm, leading into the newer Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing from 6-9pm. The Brady Bunch and Home Improvement both replaced Little House on the Prairie, as that drama is off the schedule again. Besides original talk show Home & Family (weekdays 10am-12pm and encore 12-2pm), Hallmark is now all sitcoms on each weekday: I Love Lucy from 5-8am, The Golden Girls from 8-10am, The Brady Bunch 2-4pm, Home Improvement 4-6pm, Last Man Standing 6-9pm, The Middle 9-11pm, The Golden Girls 11pm-1am, Frasier 1-4am and Cheers 4-5am.
