Also in October you can catch new episodes of original animated comedy Glenn Martin, DDS every Monday at 8pm.
View and discuss the Nick at Nite October 2009 highlights.

Encore Westerns has acquired the rights to air several classic Western series from CBS TV Distribution. They have acquired Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel and Rawhide. Black and white episodes of Gunsmoke will return to Encore Westerns in January (TV Land has the other package still), with Have Gun Will Travel and Rawhide airing sometime next year.
Fans were devastated when Gunsmoke went off the channel four long years ago, so they decided to re-acquire it! Currently Encore Westerns airs Maverick, Cheyenne, The Gene Autry Show, Bret Maverick, Cimarron Strip, and The Magnificent Seven. Stay with us for more on this!

We leave you today with another TV passing. Lilyan Chauvin passed away at her Studio City home on Thursday, June 26, 2008 after a 40 year battle with breast cancer complicated by recent onset of congestive heart disease. She was not just an actress, she was also a host, DGA director, WGA writer, former VP of Women in Film, author, teacher and private coach.
Nominated for the Emmy Award in The Young and the Restless her dedication to the arts won her recognition to for Excellence in moral quality media. She was also a series regular on Days of Our Lives.
She held recurring roles on Mission Impossible, General Hospital and Falcon Crest. She guest starred on many series as well such as Diff'rent Strokes, The Facts of Life, One Day at a Time, Magnum P.I., Baywatch, Hart to Hart, Fantasy Island, The Bob Newhart Show, Dragnet, Adventures of Superman, Perry Mason, Friends, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, ER, Malcolm in the Middle, Alias, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The X-Files, Murder She Wrote, Frasier, USA High, The Pretender, Shashta McNasty, and recently on Ugly Betty.
On the big screen, she is known for her roles in Steven Spielberg's Catch Me if You Can, the Coen brothers' The Man Who Wasn't There, Stephan Hopkins' Predator 2 and she is also widely recognized for her role as Mrs. Tremont in Private Benjamin.
She will certainly be missed. She was 82.

Maverick and Bret Maverick Reruns to Encore Westerns; Nick at Nite Latin America Adds New Shows and Look

The Encore Westerns channel will be adding the classic TV western Maverick to its line-up beginning July 4 with a 12-hour marathon beginning at noon – airs each hour, on the hour. The series ran from 1957-62 starring the legendary James Garner, Jack Kelly, and Roger Moore. Maverick will then join the Classic TV Westerns blocks on Encore Westerns beginning on Monday, July 7 that includes The Gene Autry Show, Bat Masterson, The Big Valley, The Rifleman, Cimarron Strip, and the 1998 Magnificent Seven. Encore Westerns had aired other TV westerns in the past such as the early seasons of Gunsmoke (Marshal Dillon) and Alias Smith & Jones.
Maverick will air weeknights at 6:00 p.m. ET and Saturday mornings at 8:00 a.m. ET beginning July 7.
Then coming in August, Encore Westerns will add the short lived series Bret Maverick (1981-82) to Saturdays at 11:35am beginning August 2 replacing Cimarron Strip. We will have more on that when available, but Bret Maverick has the return of James Garner as Maverick. Returning to the role that made him famous, James Garner is once again Bret Maverick who has decided to settle down in the town of Sweetwater, AZ. Now Maverick must learn to get along as the Wild West is tamed by modern civilization.
Discuss the addition of Maverick and the revival series Bret Maverick on our westerns message board where you can also find all the airtimes of the TV westerns on Encore Westerns. Saddle up, pardners!

It's been a few years since the launch of Nick at Nite Latin America, and we brought that news to back then, now they have announced a new look with some new shows as well. They (Nickelodeon Latin America) are launching a refreshed image campaign for the family-programming block Nick at Nite Latin America, complete with new promos, IDs, fillers, bumpers and classic series.
The logo for Nick at Nite Latin America has been changed to orange to complement Nickelodeon's overall look and feel, just like how it is in the U.S. now. The block also features new on-air elements such as IDs, fillers, bumpers and menus, with a complete overhaul of all current promos and creative graphics. The changes are also reflected on Nick at Nite Latin America's section within the Nickelodeon Latin America website.
Along with the revamped image, Nick at Nite Latin America will feature new series, including Kenan and Kel, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Get Smart...just in time for the new movie. Get Smart will get a weekend marathon this weekend on Nick at Nite Latin America. Too bad no one in the United States is doing this! These join classic series already airing in the block such as Clarissa Explains It All, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Growing Pains, The Munsters, The Addams Family, and ALF.
These shows will only available to the Latin American countries and not in the U.S., I remind you.
