The Girl with Something Extra - Sally Field

getTV kicks off a new year of classic films and rare series, with a January lineup offering heartfelt tributes, new programming additions, and more--airing in primetime, all month long. The roster is headlined by a month-long Cher double-shot, featuring appearances by David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, and Carol Burnett; and also includes Sally Field in all 22 episodes of the 1973 sitcom The Girl with Something Extra; Kurt Russell and Tim Matheson in the 1976 Western series The Quest; Richard Burgi in the 1996 sci-fi hit The Sentinel; an all-day Hondo western marathon of every episode on Jan. 2; a Sunday night Tom Selleck birthday block; stunts starring Betty White, Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball; and more. getTV welcomes three additions to the daytime programming lineup starting on Tuesday, Jan. 3, with Sally Field in The Girl with Something Extra at 7:20 a.m. ET; Josh Brolin in The Young Riders, airing Monday-Thursday at 11 a.m. ET, Fridays at 9 a.m. ET, and weekdays at 6 p.m. ET; and Richard Burgi in The Sentinel, weekdays at 4 p.m. ET. The Girl with Something Extra (1973) - Sally Field stars in this rare 1973 sitcom as a newlywed whose ability to read peoples' minds throws her and her husband (John Davidson) into a variety of wacky hijinks. The show co-starred Zohra Lampert and Jack Sheldon, with appearances by Farrah Fawcett, Merv Griffin, Don Knotts, Dick Van Patten, Teri Garr, and Stephanie Edwards.

Also of note for us, stay up late with getTV, as the network unveils a new Get Lost In TV overnight block, every Sunday at 12 a.m. ET, starting on Jan. 1 with John Cassavetes as a piano-playing P.I. in five episodes of Johnny Staccato. Next, on Jan. 8, Perry King, Joe Penny, and Thom Bray star as crime solving Vietnam vets in five episodes of Stephen J. Cannell's Riptide. Then, tune in for a pair of California crime dramas on Jan. 15, with Steve Forrester and Robert Urich in three episodes of S.W.A.T., and Howard Duff, Ben Alexander, and Dennis Cole in three episodes of Felony Squad. getTV celebrates comedy's funniest ladies on Jan. 22, featuring Betty White and the cast of The Golden Girls on The Merv Griffin Show at 11 p.m. ET, as well as classic specials starring Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, Mary Tyler Moore, Ann-Margret, and Minnie Pearl. The month closes on Jan. 29, with Western hero Audie Murphy as a Denver lawman in nine episodes of Whispering Smith.


This Is Us

Viewers will have the chance to binge-watch the biggest hit of the fall season, This Is Us, when all 10 episodes of NBC's breakout drama air on sister cable network USA Network. The catch-up marathon kicks off at 1 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday Jan. 7 with the pilot episode airing simultaneously on NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment's USA, Bravo and E! networks. All episodes will then continue on USA Network through 11 p.m. New episodes of This Is Us return to NBC on Tuesday, Jan. 10. The series stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones. In the series, it is a refreshingly honest and provocative series that follows a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways. We find several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect.
