Disgusting isn't it?

This is awful! When does this start?

It starts on Monday & the episode is sown only once. Some other good shows being moved to goofy time slots are: Maude is on at 5:30 am, Adam 12 is on at 4 Am & Honeymooners is on a 8 am. I'll get up from 5-5:30 to tape it so I can tape it without the commercials then back to bed. When the Raul ones come on I'll just let the VCR tape those by timer & on a seperate tape to seperate them from the Chico ones, which the Chico ones were the classic ones. Thank God Andy Giffith, Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Get Smart are on a good hours & Emergency's being moved back to 8 pm.
I e-mailed TVLAND requesting they move the show to a good time. I posted their e-mail address in another topic on here. Glad I'm a housewife cuz I can keep weird hours & it's okay...

I live in the central time zone and CATM comes on at 4:00 a.m. I've got to learn how to program my VCR fast because I can't stand the thought of missing one episode! I'm sure
CATM won't get any new fans from around here being on at that time!!!! I already wrote to
TV-land about if and when it would be moved to a better time slot but have not gotten a reply.

Being on the West Coast and having to get up and go to work in the morning, this is a major schedule adjustment for me! I cannot for the life of me program my VCR, so for the next couple of weeks it is up at 2am for me to press the Record button!
I think that I will be like JennyLee, and let the VCR run for most of the Raul episodes. If I have to get up at 2am to complete my Chico collection, so be it! We have all waited 24 years see Freddie again! IT IS WORTH IT!!

I have been reading the messages for awhile but this is my first post. I,m going to need a bucket of water from the Hubba Hubba club but only because I am so steamed at TvLand for their stupid new schedule. They didn;t even air all the episodes with Chico before they gave it a crummy time slot! Like everyone needs another run of the Odd Couple at a good time. Some of these shows have been shown so many times on so many stations. You think they would keep the show that people haven't been able to see in more than twenty years in a good time slot!!!
Well I just had to get that off my chest. I know you'll feel the same way. No need to even mention how adorable freddie is because it's so obvious to anyone with taste!!!

I looked up on TVLAND's website & it won't be on on Mondays due to the FANDEMONIUMS being on until 6 am. Yikes! They kmove the show to a bad timeslot & only play it 4 days & with 4 days of airplay it'll take us longer to get thru thru the Raul episodes.
The SCREEN GEMS NETWORK was even worse. They played the Monkees & the Partridge Family for awhile, then took them off. Our local channel that was playing them quit playing them after they took off the Monkees. Supposedly they put a Monkees episode on again one day but I couldn't see it cuz the SCREEN GEMS NETWORK was no longer on in my area. YUCK! At least TVLAND isn't that bad but hopefully they will see the demand. Good luck!
Actually it will still air 5 times a week, just Tuesday-Saturday (5AM Saturday mornings)...

Does anyone know if they will rebroadcast the episodes or is it just going to be shown this one time through to the end and that's it?

Wow, 5 am Sat mornings? Thanks for the info or I'd have missed the Saturday ones! http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/smile.gif
Just looked at the TVLAND site & it shows the GOMER PYLE FANDEMONIUM marthon as being on at 5 AM Sat morning. Now I'm so confused... I wonder if that means CHICO won't be on Sat mornings at 5 am due to the FANDEMONIUMS? Yikes! http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/frown.gif

I went back to tvland to check. The fandemonium weekend with Gomer Pyle (By the way I personally hated that show, no offence to fans of it) is scheduled to start at 6am and Chico is still listed for 5am (all times EST) All I can say is keep checking tvland.com.

Thanks for the info! I sure hope they are right & it is on Sat am. Fortunately I love GOMER PYLE. My hubby & I want to tape some episodes of that one. Here's hoping on 5 am Sat.
