MeTV Fall 2018 Schedule; Disney Channel Gets New Sitcom for Friday Nights This Fall

Green Acres

MeTV has announced its fall lineup, with some new additions and some shows leaving as a result. Coming this September to MeTV are In the Heat of the Night, Green Acres, and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Shows leaving are Batman, Star Trek, and The Odd Couple. The only change to weekdays is In the Heat of the Night replacing The Big Valley at noon Eastern. The other changes are to weekends with timeslot changes primarily to morning sitcoms and sci-fi evenings on Saturdays. Changes for Saturdays are Petticoat Junction replacing Gomer Pyle at 5AM, The Beverly Hillbillies replacing Petticoat Junction at 6AM, Green Acres replacing The Beverly Hillbillies at 7AM, Lost in Space replacing Batman at 10PM, Buck Rogers replacing Star Trek at 11PM, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea replacing Lost in Space at 2AM, Land of the Giants replacing Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea at 3AM, and Swamp Thing replacing Land of the Giants at 4:00 and 4:30AM.

Sundays will have more ALF in the morning, with ALF replacing Swamp Thing at 5 and 5:30AM, so ALF is now 5-7am. Gilligan's Island gets a Three-Hour Tour from 2PM-5PM replacing sitcoms like Mama's Family, The Facts of Life and Diff'rent Strokes, and following The Brady Bunch Brunch from 12-2pm. And the final Sunday change is M*A*S*H* replacing The Odd Couple at 7 and 7:30PM.


Coop & Cami Ask the World

Multi-talented young actors Dakota Lotus and Ruby Rose Turner lead the ensemble cast of Coop & Cami Ask the World, Disney Channel's new live-action multi-camera comedy. The series follows the antics of middle-school siblings Coop and Cami Wrather, who co-host a popular online show while balancing life, family and friendship, premiering Friday, October 12, on Disney Channel at 8:30pm EDT, in the DisneyNOW app and on Disney Channel VOD (12:01 a.m. local). The second episode will be available immediately following the series' premiere (9:00 p.m. EDT) in the DisneyNOW app and Disney Channel YouTube.

Made for kids and families, the live-action comedy follows Cooper (Lotus) and Cameron (Turner) Wrather, two middle-school siblings who co-host Coop's online show Would You Wrather. With the help of their little brother Ollie and Coop's best friend Fred, the duo present out-of-the-box questions and results to the show's millions of followers (aka Wratherheads) who help them solve life problems - both mundane and madcap. Every day is an adventure in the Wrather's hectic household, which also includes their older sister Charlotte and mom, Jenna. Whatever the question or result, Coop and Cami tackle adolescence and everyday family situations with humor and heart.

Also starring are Olivia Sanabia (Just Add Magic) as their older sister Charlotte; Albert Tsai (Dr. Ken, Trophy Wife) as Coop's best friend Fred; Paxton Booth (The Toy Box) as their little brother Ollie and Rebecca Metz (Better Things) as their mom Jenna. In the premiere episode, Cooper and Cami are preparing for their school dance when they learn their mom is ready to start dating again, now that it's been two years since their father passed away. Much to their chagrin, her first date happens to be with their principal. Not sure what to do, they turn to the Wratherheads for advice, asking "Would you Wrather have your mom date the principal or take your mom to the school dance?"
