TV schedules for over-the-air nostalgia networks

Scheduling changes: Week of 1 April 2019

We are now in the second quarter of 2019 and several schedule changes big and small, so let’s get right to it.

Fess Parker as Daniel Boone

Antenna TV

Goodbye: Small Wonder

The largely loathed ’80s syndicated sitcom Small Wonder is out of Antenna TV’s schedule, though it only aired on Sundays. It is replaced by Gimme a Break!.

Scheduling changes: Week of 18 March 2019

A few minor changes that are more footnotes but still deserve some attention.

Life with Elizabeth title card

Charge!

The evening showings of The Avengers and Secret Agent on weekends have been axed. Both can still seen midday Sunday.


Bounce

The minor-est of minor notes. The Saturday morning block of The Bernie Mac Show and Half & Half is now Bernie and One on One. Half & Half can only be found in the early hours of Sunday.


Decades

Hello: Life with Elizabeth
Goodbye: Mr. Lucky

The casino-turned-restaurant drama Mr. Lucky has been replaced by the Betty White sitcom Life with Elizabeth in Decades’ late night Lost TV block.

Scheduling Changes: Week of 4 March 2019

Another week of minimal changes, but the new entry replaces a longtime vintage staple.

According to Jim season nine(ish) title sequence

Laff

Hello: According to Jim
Goodbye: Night Court

Laff parts ways (for now?) with Night Court and adds According to Jim to various spots in its schedule. It’s not an overhaul as the primetime scheduling remains the same, but the morning, afternoon, and late night all get a little Jim, totaling eight episodes per day. Jim also airs Sunday morning. Meanwhile, Grounded for Life gets (re)upgraded from Sunday mornings to episodes every weekday.

Scheduling Changes: Week of 25 February 2019

The Monkees title sequence

A little late, so I’m keeping it brief.

MeTV

Hello: The Monkees

After a great response for its tribute last Sunday to Peter Tork, MeTV is making The Monkees a permanent fixture to its Sunday schedule. The ’60s show, known for its quick cuts, occasional meta humor, and music videos, was seen on Antenna TV until early 2018 and remains a Saturday fixture for fetv. It has also aired on IFC — but I couldn’t tell you if it is still on its schedule. The Monkees replaces The Jeffersons, which can still be seen Monday through Friday.

Scheduling Changes: Week of 4 February 2019

A few updates I missed last week and a few minor tweaks.

La Femme Nikita starring Peta Wilson

Bounce

Goodbye: A Different World

(I missed these last week…) Not that A Different World aired more than a couple times a week, but its now been a couple weekends since the ’80s sitcom was a part of the network’s lineup. It (re)joined Laff this past weekend. The network recruiting Scandal might not have worked out as hoped as its already been bumped to the overnight hours. The weekday schedule shuffles its sitcom and movie blocks (weekdays and weekends) around and Half & Half moves to weekends, but the changes aren’t major.


Charge!

Hello: La Femme Nikita
Goodbye: Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons; Space 1999; Thunderbirds

La Femme Nikita joins CHiPs as Charge!’s weekday retro programming with three episodes every afternoon.

And at some point in January, the weekend schedule converted movies. The newcomers Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons didn’t even last the month. Space 1999 is also gone as are weekend editions of its weekday shows.

Scheduling Changes: Week of 28 January 2019

An update for a handful of networks…

Mr. Lucky

Decades

Hello: Mr. Lucky; I Married Joan
Goodbye: The Millionaire

Beginning this week, Decades changed its late-night Lost TV block. Joining are the one season casino-then-restaurant drama Mr. Lucky and ’50s sitcom I Married Joan. The earlier was last seen weekly (though its also available on Amazon and on DVD) in 2018 on Decades’ sister netlet MeTV until it vanished — and not having finished a full cycle. The duo replaces back-to-back episodes of The Millionaire.


getTV

Hello: Yancy Derringer
Goodbye: Dolly

On Sunday morning, short-lived Western Yancy Derringer returns to getTV, replacing Dolly, which didn’t fit in the lineup anyway.


Heroes & Icons

Hello: Adventures of Superman; Batman
Goodbye: Hercules: The Legendary Journeys; The Incredible Hulk; Xena: Warrior Princess

H&I bids farewell to its late night offering Hercules and Xena. The duo is replaced with Hunter and Renegade, including in the Sunday night/Monday morning block.

On weekends, The Incredible Hulk exits from the mornings for the return of Adventures of Superman and Batman.
