I have to agree - WGN is turning into my favorite station! It's schedules just keep getting better and better every month. The daytime sitcom block is amazing, and so is the Sunday night block. What an amazing network this has turned out to be!

some good and some bad
the great news, I LOVE the timeslot upgrades and additions for Bewitched and Jeannie! After being preempted two of the last three weeks I was worried Coach and ALF were goners. Instead ALF stays and gets an additional slot. And while it will be missed from Sundays Coach is now in primetime on a night I didn't have much to watch. much better than USA treated it the bad, 7th Heaven must have really bombed. Becker and AFV will be a big step down in quality. And the piece of garbage Scrubs gets even more good timeslots. It's a shame Corner Gas isn't working out.

Replacing the movie on Thursday in primetime this April:

WGN AMERICA ENTERS WWE RING WITH WWE SUPERSTARS

ORIGINAL PROGRAM TO AIR EXCLUSIVELY ON WGN AMERICA BEGINNING APRIL 2009

NEW YORK, NY and STAMFORD, CT, January 5, 2009--WGN America and World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE: WWE) enter the ring with a new television partnership. WWE Superstars, a first run, original program will air exclusively on WGN America, Tribune Broadcasting's national Superstation.

The action-packed WWE Superstars, part of a new multi-year agreement with WGN America, will be produced by WWE and will feature Superstars and Divas from the entire WWE roster. The hour-long weekly program, scheduled to debut in April 2009, will provide WGN America viewers the chance to see Superstars and Divas from all three WWE franchises in one program. WWE Superstars is scheduled to air on Thursday nights at 8 and 11pm ET with an additional run on the weekend (Saturday afternoons).

"WWE is one of the great American brands on television and we are thrilled to announce our partnership. The addition of WWE Superstars to WGN America's lineup signals our intention to add more tent-pole programs to our network brand strategy. Going forward, we will play to win," said Ed Wilson, Tribune Company's Chief Revenue Officer and Tribune Broadcasting President.

"WWE programming has a tremendous track record of consistently delivering a diverse and advertiser friendly audience. We fully anticipate that WWE Superstars will be a ratings winner for WGN America," said Kevin Dunn, WWE Executive Vice President of Television Production.

"WGN America is a general entertainment network featuring original and syndicated series, major league sports including baseball and basketball, as well as theatrical movies. We are committed to delivering compelling, original first-run programming for our viewers and WWE Superstars is the perfect illustration of our strategy," said Sean Compton, Senior Vice President of Programming & Development, Tribune Broadcasting.

the only thing I don't like is what they've done with Corner Gas - they should be airing the new episodes instead of rerunning the same old ones to death

What are WGN's plans for Super Bowl Sunday? Last year they aired a Corner Gas marathon. Outta Sight Retro Night hadn't premiered yet. The logical choice this year would be a Coach marathon. Also are they planning anything different for Valentine's Day?

As of now, there are no real plans for anything special for WGN America on Super Bowl Sunday and Valentine's Day. However on Super Bowl Sunday they are airing the movie Groundhog Day at 8-10pm ET and again at 11pm-1am ET.
