Buffy the Vampire Slayer on MTV Update; Goode Family Repeats Launches Next Monday on Comedy Central

A few weeks ago we told you that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is coming to Logo and MTV in January. Everything is all set for Buffy on Logo, as the marathon will air New Year's Day and then it will join the regular schedule...but MTV has altered their schedule a bit. Buffy will NOT launch on MTV on Jan. 10 with a marathon. Instead, it will join the schedule without a marathon a week later than planned. It starts airing weekdays at 11am ET/PT on Tuesday, Jan. 19. Oh well, enjoy the marathon on Logo this week and watch the show at better time slots regularly on Logo (like 6pm & 7pm) if you don't like the 11am midday airing on MTV. As always, especially with Viacom networks, the Jan. 19 date is subject to change. So stay with us if anything changes.
I personally can't get enough of the John Ritter episode called "Ted." Can't wait to watch it again on Logo's marathon! You can watch Buffy online on TheWB.com also. Other shows available on TheWB.com include other Warner Bros. owned series like, Angel, Ben Stiller Show, Everwood, Firefly, Friends, George Carlin Show, Growing Pains, In Living Color, Lois & Clark, MADtv, Pushing Daisies, The Loop, V, What I Like About You, and Wonder Woman.

Comedy Central has just changed The Goode Family premiere date to Monday, Jan. 4, instead of Tuesday, Jan. 5. The Goode Family will air weekly on Monday nights at 10 pm ET. The Goode Family, the satirical animated series from Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, will air on Comedy Central beginning January 4, 2010 in a secondary run. The Goode Family, which first premiered in May 2009 on ABC, is produced by Media Rights Capital, Ternion Pictures and 3 Arts Entertainment.
The complete first season of The Goode Family with all 13 episodes will air on Comedy Central on Monday nights at 10:00 pm ET, giving vegans, lesbians, right-wing conservatives, Prius owners, Texas-rednecks and liberals-who-can-laugh-at-themselves a second chance to fall in love with the Goodes.
If the series does well in repeats, there is a chance Comedy Central can get the show back in production for a second season. So watch it, especially if you have never watched!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Coming to Logo and MTV in January 2010; Minor Nick at Nite Changes

If you all remember when we announced that Grounded for Life was coming to MTV, at the end I mentioned a teen drama was also coming to MTV soon...now it is time to announce that drama! The teen drama is... Buffy the Vampire Slayer! The classic 1997-2003 The WB series (and later UPN) starring Sarah Michelle Gellar will join the Viacom owned MTV and also sister network Logo in January 2010.
It first launches on Logo with a marathon on New Year's Day (Friday, Jan. 1, 2010), from 6am-12am ET! That's 18 hours of kicking vampire butt! Buffy joins The L Word and Queer as Folk as other scripted dramas on Logo. Buffy will regularly air on Logo weeknights at 6pm & 7pm and also 2am & 3am starting Jan. 4. It will also air at various times on weekends, such as Fridays in primetime at 9pm & 10pm, and weekend mornings. Keep an eye out, because weekends are not the same every week...there will be a whole lotta Buffy, though!
As for MTV, the series premieres with an 8-hour marathon on Sunday, January 10, 2010 starting at 11am. Then it will regularly air on MTV weekdays at 11am starting Monday, January 11 following hours of Grounded for Life and Degrassi.
The airings on Logo and MTV mark the first time Buffy has been on cable since FX stopped airing the show last fall, when they had relegated to weekend mornings. Buffy aired on and off on FX from 2001-2008.
At the young age of 16, Buffy Summers was chosen to hunt vampires, demons, and the
forces of darkness. After the ordeal at Hemery High, Buffy Summers wound up at Sunnydale High. Joined with Willow Rosenberg and Alexander "Xander" Harris, and her watcher Giles, Buffy fights the challenges of High School and saves the world...a lot. Some of the guest stars over the years on Buffy included John Ritter, Nathan Fillion, and Ashanti.

There has been a few minor Nick at Nite changes that have recently happened. Since Monday (Dec. 7), the weekdays 6-7am hour is now Family Matters, as it was only airing Tuesdays and Thursdays before. The Nanny was airing Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays....but now Family Matters is fully on weekdays. Weekends remain the same with Family Matters in the 6am hour and The Nanny on Sundays in that hour. On Friday nights, Everybody Hates Chris will now air at 2am instead of 1:30am, as George Lopez encore will air in the 1am hour now. Previously it was The Nanny at 1am and Chris at 1:30am. And finally, Malcolm in the Middle late nights on weekends are now gone. They were airing Saturday and Sunday nights in the 1am hour, now we get another hour of The Nanny instead, now from 11pm-2am.
We previously mentioned that next week (Dec. 14), will have George Lopez air 9-11pm on Mon-Thurs, and as of now it is still happening. It is only for that week.
View the updated changes for Nick at Nite December 2009 and stay with us in the coming weeks for the January 2010 schedule and highlights!
