Hallmark Drama Adding Cheers, Happy Days and The Brady Bunch; Chelsea Handler HBO Max Special Gets Date

Cheers - Happy Days - The Brady Bunch

Hallmark Drama will be adding three sitcoms to the lineup! Beginning Friday, October 23, the late fringe/overnight lineup will consist of sitcoms from 11pm-5am every night. Cheers will air from 11pm-1am, followed by Happy Days from 1-3am and The Brady Bunch from 3-5am. They have all aired in the past on the regular Hallmark Channel, but now for the first time they will air on Hallmark Drama. Hallmark Drama launched in Fall 2017. The three sitcoms will replace The Waltons and Touched by an Angel blocks. The Waltons will still in the daytime, but it seems Touched by an Angel will be off the lineup. The drama series during the day are Little House on the Prairie, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and The Waltons.

Chelsea Handler: Evolution

On Thursday, October 22, Chelsea Handler makes her long awaited return to stand-up after a six year hiatus with Chelsea Handler: Evolution on HBO Max. During the hour-long special Handler will share hilarious experiences about her family, friendships, and her first foray into therapy - where she was able to unearth why everyone on this planet annoyed her so much. Handler, a six-time #1 New York Times Bestselling author, filmed the special this summer from her home state of New Jersey on the heels of her most recent bestselling memoir, Life Will Be the Death of Me. The special was filmed in front of a live audience following social distancing and covid safety protocol. Handler has always been a trusted voice and has provided much needed perspective for the world. Now, she turns the attention on herself, reflecting on her personal journey toward self-awareness, assisted by her reliable companion - cannabis. Never one to hold back, Handler bravely takes the stage to face herself in front of everyone. It's a powerful performance and the most evolved work of her career.
