'Cosby Show' Kids to Host Nick at Nite Marathon; CBS Summer Update

Nick at Nite will not make last second changes to its weekend line-up this week (at least not yet). Well, except the Murphy Brown Saturday night (early Sunday morning) airing at 5:30am has been replaced by Full House for this week. In addition, a rebroadcast of the TV Land Awards will air Sunday from 11pm-12:30am, but we knew that. A last minute Cosby Show stunt has been booked for all of next week. Nick at Nite invites viewers to spend a week with their favorite television family on Huxta-palooza, a week-long marathon hosted by the Huxtable children as they present their favorite episodes and moments from The Cosby Show. From Monday, April 23 – Sunday, April 29, actors Keisha Knight-Pulliam, Malcom Jamaal Warner, Tempestt Bledsoe, Lisa Bonet, and Sabrina Le Beauf will each host their own night featuring their favorite six episodes. Huxta-palooza will feature never-before-seen interviews with the Cosby kids as the stars comment on their characters’ greatest meltdowns, triumphs, best fashion moments and more.
Airs Sun-Thurs from 9-3am and Fri-Sat from 10pm-4am. Full House will air in the 3am hour, Growing Pains in the 4am hour, a rotation of Designing Women/Murphy Brown in the 5am half-hour and Full House at 5:30am. That is for next week ONLY.

CBS has announced premiere dates for two summer series. Pirate Master, the next epic adventure reality series from Emmy Award-winning producer Mark Burnett, will premiere Thursday, May 31 from 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT on CBS.
Pirate Master will send 16 modern-day pirates on a high seas adventure where they will live as buccaneers and travel around the Caribbean island of Dominica in search of hidden treasure that will total $1 million. Over the course of 33 days, these pirates will live aboard a massive 179 foot, square-rigged barque which carries 12,500 square feet of sail.
Creature Comforts, the American version of the hit British television series will premiere Monday, June 4 from 8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT on CBS. Based on the original Academy Award-winning short film of the same name created by Nick Park and Aardman Animations, Ltd., the half-hour stop-motion animated series employs a unique format that culls excerpts from real person interviews and places them in the mouths of a wide variety of animated animals to produce humorous, charming and insightful commentaries on everyday life.
