'Valerie' Episodes Will Air on ABC Family, But...; The N Acquires Dramas; And the Sitcom Coming to CMT Is...

The other day we posted that The Hogan Family is coming to ABC Family starting April 3. We also stated that they will start with season three, by passing the 'Valerie' years. That is all still true, but ABC Family has informed me that the Valerie years will only be skipped for the first rotation. You will get to watch the Valerie seasons as soon as the first rotation ends. So not to worry Valerie Harper fans! ABC Family has done this with several other shows before, such as when they started Step by Step and Full House--heading to the later years so they don't lose an audience.

CBS will now premiere The New Adventures of Old Christine as a two-episode event featuring original broadcasts at 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Monday, March 13.
The pilot of The New Adventures of Old Christine, starring Emmy Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a comedy about a contemporary American mom, will be broadcast at a special time at 8:30 p.m. followed by the series' second episode, titled "Supertramp," which will be broadcast in its previously announced regularly scheduled 9:30 p.m. time period.

The N announced yesterday that they have brought reruns of dramas Summerland and Dawson's Creek. Creek is currently on TBS, which has ran reruns since May, 2003. There is no word if The N's contract is exclusive or not. The N will premiere all 26 hour-long episodes of Summerland beginning Monday May 1 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT and will follow in the fall with the entire library (128 episodes) of the groundbreaking teen drama Dawson’s Creek, on Friday, September 1. Both series originally aired on The WB.

And now we will end today's news with the info on that sitcom that we talked about that is coming to CMT on March 6. The sitcom is...The Jeff Foxworthy Show. It will air weekdays at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT (before The Dukes of Hazzard) with an encore at 2:00 a.m. ET/PT (after The Dukes of Hazzard). Foxworthy will continue to air on sister Viacom-net Nick@Nite weeknights at 5:00 a.m. ET/PT. No offense to Foxworthy Show fans, but we were all hoping for something that was not already seen, like maybe Alice?
