Sorry for this long delay. There have definitely been changes since my last update in June. So, let’s not waste time and get to the rundown.
Back in July, the biggest change was Soap being bumped to weekends only. The weekend schedule in the early afternoon had some juggling, but nothing was removed or added to the network’s slate. What’s Happening!! and its follow-up series are both on weekends while Family Ties is now weekdays-only.
A few updates I missed last week and a few minor tweaks.
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.
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.
