The Summer of MeTV with Barry Williams

MeTV kicks off its 2017 The Summer of Me on Monday, May 29 (as we mentioned), with Barry Williams of the beloved family TV comedy The Brady Bunch joining as host. The network will feature a special block of classic comedies weekday afternoons and weeknights all summer long. To ensure that its summer schedule is both classic and fresh as an ocean breeze, MeTV has added a number of shows to new time periods, including the out-of-this-world comedy ALF, which joins the network line-up for the very first time. As host, Barry Williams will appear on MeTV in interstitials and promotional announcements throughout the summer. In addition, Barry will select his favorite and most memorable episodes to air as part of a week-long special event in July, "The Brady Bunch – Barry's Best." Beginning Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 14, from 5:00 to 5:30pm ET/PT, Barry will share touching and entertaining anecdotes from inside The Brady Bunch as he presents his personal favorites from the 117 episodes spanning five seasons of the iconic series. Extended commentary will be featured on MeTV.com.
