TV schedules for over-the-air nostalgia networks

Scheduling Changes: 2 Sep 2019

Barnaby Jones

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.

Antenna TV

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.

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 Lucky has been replaced by the Betty White sitcom Life with Elizabeth in Decades’ late night Lost TV block.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 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 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.
