I agree about Malcolm vs. DS. I think Malcolm And Eddie gets preferential treatment since it's far more recent, and the fact that it starred a Cosby actor probably doesn't hurt it either. DS is seen as an old sitcom with a stigma attached to it, but if that's the case, why would BET even pick it up?

Exactly Dean, why even pick up DS if it's only going to be air ONCE a day which is when a lot of people are either sleep, at school, or at work-lol

Plus my concern is as well is that they won't air ALL the episode before it mysteriously vanishes from the scheduled

Well with 2 airings a day the whole series should be shown by the end of May. So let's keep our Fingers crossed, I won't start recording the eps until mid March

Even though I actually like Malcolm & Eddie (well I did originally, haven't seen most of the episodes in years so that opinion could change overtime), I do agree that it comes on too much. No show should come on more than twice a day regularly IMO and in the case of DS, it should be run all the way through at least once.

Ok I actually took the time to read your rant. Amen is coming back to TVOne??? I haven't heard that. I saw that Good News was added to their lineup.

Yup, Amen is coming back and who cares about "Good News". They keep adding all these 90's UPN reject shows to their lineup, they need to learn from BET

I for one Liked Good News, and I'm glad that Amen is coming back, now I can finish recording episodes. They need to bring back 227

No they need to add something else from the 70's besides Good Times
