3rd Rock from the Sun Launches on Laff in July; The CW Fall 2018 Premiere Dates

3rd Rock from the Sun

Laff will begin 3rd Rock from the Sun starting Monday, July 16, 2018. It will air weeknights from 5-7pm, as Night Court will move to 1-3pm. 3rd Rock from the Sun joins Home Improvement on Laff, which was just added this month. Laff's new schedule will include Grounded for Life from 8-9am, Grace Under Fire from 9-10am, three-hours of Spin City from 10am-1pm, and two-hour blocks each of Night Court and The Drew Carey Show from 1pm-5pm, all starting July 16. 3rd Rock airs from 5-7pm into That '70s Show and Home Improvement in primetime from 7-11pm. Late nights will have more That '70s Show from 11pm-1am, then an hour each of Grace Under Fire, The Drew Carey Show and more Grace from 1am-4am. Weekends will remain the same as it is now, so 3rd Rock will not air weekends. Cybill is the only show on weekends that doesn't air on weekdays, and will continue to air from 6am-8am on Saturday mornings. We previously announced the acquisition of 3rd Rock, but now we have a premiere date and timings.


The CW

The CW Network has revealed the premiere dates for its new six-night primetime schedule starting this October, plus the time period switch for Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow on Monday nights. On Tuesday, October 9, The CW's highest rated series The Flash races back into action (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), followed by the second season of the new hit Black Lightning (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT). The red-hot Riverdale returns for its third season Wednesday, October 10 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), followed by the debut of the inspiring new series All American (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

Thursday nights once again kick off with Supernatural, which is back for season 14 starting October 11 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). For two weeks, Supernatural will provide a lead-in to encore telecasts of The CW's new series All American on October 11 and Charmed on October 18, before the debut of the new series Legacies, set in the world of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, on October 25 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

The CW's new Sunday primetime line-up features the heroic return of Supergirl (8:00-9:00PM ET/PT) teamed up with the bewitching new series Charmed (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT), and premieres October 14. The CW will be switching time periods for its two high-octane action and adventure Monday series, with Arrow now leading off the night premiering October 15 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), and DC's Legends of Tomorrow moving an hour later, making its season four premiere on October 22 (9:00-10:00PM ET/PT). This is a time period change for both shows from what was previously announced in May. The CW's Fall season officially kicks off with the exclusive telecast of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, airing over two nights Sunday, October 7 (8:00-10:00pm ET/PT) and Monday, October 8 (8:00-10:00pm ET/PT).
