Nick at Nite Brings Back Roseanne; Centric Acquires Miami Vice, Homicide

Late last week we told you Roseanne was going to be cut by an hour on TV Land to 12-2am instead of 12-3am, and now we know why. Sister network Nick at Nite will bring back the show and also air it in late nights starting TONIGHT! Nick at Nite will air Roseanne every night from 3-6am, replacing the nightly marathons of The Nanny, Family Matters and Home Improvement. In fact, Family Matters will be gone totally now, while Home Improvement will only air weekdays at 6am. Big bummer. Of course The Nanny will continue to air in the 11pm hour every night.
So if you're keeping track, Roseanne airs on TV Land every night from 12-2am, except it is longer on Thursdays (9pm-2am) and Fridays (11pm-2am) and now every night on Nick at Nite from 3-6am. Just last week it was looking like Roseanne would finally be reduced, but now here comes Nick at Nite re-adding the series. At least the TV Land reduction brought Three's Company (my personal favorite) another half-hour on weeknights (now 3:30am-5am) and on Saturdays we now get the series from 2-6am instead of 4-6am.

Exactly a week ago today we told you that BET J (spin-off network of BET) was renaming to Centric, now today they will launch their regular schedule after having stunts last week. And they have acquired two dramas! They have acquired the rights to the '90s drama Homicide: Life on the Street and '80s action drama Miami Vice. Both will start airing TONIGHT every weeknight! Homicide will air 9pm & 12am while Miami Vice will air 11pm & 4am. Miami Vice is also slated for Saturdays from 3-6pm.
These new acquisitions join Centric's line-up of The Montel Williams Show, Judge Karen, and sitcom The Steve Harvey Show (daytime, 11am-2pm); Afternoon Movie, VH-1/MTV/BET Reality Series (late afternoons, 4pm-8pm), and original series at 8pm. Centric is also airing reruns of BET's American Gangster weeknights at 10pm and 1am, while the afternoon movie encores weeknights at 2am. Soul Train will air once a week on Fridays at 7pm and encores Saturdays at 12 noon & 6pm.
We will keep you up to date on any further developments, but adding these two dramas is a nice start, especially Miami Vice!
