Decades’ Weekend Binges: May 2019

May is another month of full of detective drama binges on Decades.

May 4-5: The Streets of San Francisco

This binge starts at the beginning and runs through S2E16, so I expect this one return for another binge this summer.

Title sequence to season one of The Streets of San Francisco

May 11-12: The Untouchables

Like The Streets of San Francisco, this binge of The Untouchables starts at the beginning and will run through S2E18. However, it does skip two two-part episodes — “The Unhired Assassin” from season one and “The Big Train” from season two.

May 18-19: Vega$

Though a from beginning binge, this one doesn’t include the original pilot movie. The entire first season will air but at the end of season two, the two-parter “The Golden Gate Cop Killer” and the finale “Vendetta” will not.

May 25-26: Barnaby Jones

The binge of this 1970s detective drama starts with season five.

Decades’ Weekend Binges: April 2019

Here are programs that will air as part of Decades’ weekend binge block in April.


April 6-7: Mannix

Mannix returns for yet another binge. This one starts with S4E6, “The Lost Art of Dying,” and runs through the rest of season four and then five, though it skips one episode season four episode (“Sunburst”).

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 Lucky has been replaced by the Betty White sitcom Life with Elizabeth in Decades’ late night Lost TV block.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

Decades’ Weekend Binges: March 2019

March 2-3: Police Woman

Select episodes from seasons two, three, and four of the Angie Dickinson police drama, concluding with the final episode.

Police Woman season two title sequence

March 9-10: Cannon

The binge begins in the latter part of season two and includes nearly all episodes through early season four before really skipping through the remaining episodes.

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.
