Looks pretty good. I'm glad they straightened the late night schedule out, it was always a mess. Good to see Chapelle, Bob & Tom, Reno 911, etc gone. Didn't even know JSM! aired on WGN! It's not a surprise to see Retro Night gone. I don't get WGN, but if I did, I probably wouldn't watch much.

Two interesting things, they will not air The Cosby Show anymore, meaning it is on no national outlet, and 7th Heaven will not be nationally aired. Becker, another WGN longtime staple, is gone as well.

Just Shoot Me! is new and they are getting rights in fall from Program Exchange. TBS has the series through Sony. TV Land/Comedy Central lost rights, but they had it through PE. Coach is the same way...USA has it through Universal, and WGN has it through PE. I think Bewitched is the same way, too (TV Land through PE/WGN through Sony).

Addams Family filler airing is interesting.

WGN showed so much promise two years ago and now this. Sucks to see Newhart and Barney Miller and the whole retro night gone. At least the Jeannie/Bewitched/Cheers block stays in tact weekdays. Moving Star Trek: TNG to 4AM kills any chance I have of seeing it on this network, they could have aired it at noon instead of one of the Heat of the Night episodes. 7th Heaven leaving is sad but I didn't see it much at 9AM anyway. I am looking forward to the Coach marathon at least.

So, let's see, of the shows I watch with any remote degree of regularity: Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Cosby Show, Boston Legal, Cheers, Barney Miller, Newhart, and Star Trek: TNG:

Four are gone (Cosby Show, Newhart, Barney Miller, Boston Legal, one is downgraded SEVERELY (Trek), two are left alone (Matlock, Heat), and one is upgraded. (Cheers).

Meanwhile, what stuff of interest is being added is either almost assuredly going to be edited to the point of being worthless (Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm), can usually be watched elsewhere (How I Met Your Mother, Monk) or I outright don't care about (the rest).

WONDERFUL changes there, WGN. That's really going to keep ME watching.

It's a pretty good,halfway decent schedule.It's a shame they are going to jettison(get rid of)Outta Site Retro Night,but I'm not WGN's programmer.Remember last year on Halloween weekend,WGN aired "The Munsters" and "The Addams Family"?Maybe they'll do it again this year,since they are going to air one episode of "The Addams Family",as filler,(and,as I've said before)but it would be nice if they could air both because there are plenty of both shows that are non-Halloweeen based.As for "Newhart"and "Barney Miller",it's a shame they won't be around in the fall.As for "The Beverly Hillbillies",(thank heavens they air the Very good Black and White episodes)"I Dream of Jeannie"(they air the black and white episodes),and "Bewitched"(I wish WGN would get the rights to the excellent black and white episodes,maybe they will-only time will tell)it's good to see them back.

The shows on WGN that I like are The Beverly Hillbillies, Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Walker Texas Ranger, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie , Cheers, Bones and Monk. They should have more retro shows though.

I think they've done a good job with their schedule. Sad to see Outta Sights Retro Night be taken away and Newhart and Barney Miller go but at least they still air Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Cheers in very solid timeslots, so no complaints there. Also, Beverly Hillbillies is airing as are some of the older dramas.

Like many have mentioned, crazy how Cosby Show went from overkill to having no national cable airings come fall after it has expired from N@N, TV Land, and WGN America. Unbelievable!

But, overall, their schedule is very good. Goes from classic sitcoms and dramas to new programming in the primetime hours. Glad we won't have to see any 3 hour AFV megathons anymore!

It seems like WGN America can't quite figure out what it is.

Does anyone know if the local stations will also have double-runs daily of the Christine, Entourage and Curb reruns?

Ah, OK. I think you had forgotten to put it as a new show at the moment of my typing.

I like what WGN is doing - they have a little bit of everything. I don't think there is much to figure out. They are an all-around network. The channel has some much needed variety in today's cable world.

I am not too happy. First of all, I am very disappointed to see that the Cosby Show is leaving all cable and will not be airing anywhere. Second of all, I was lied to by various people on different websites that claimed the Brady Bunch was coming WGN after it left TV Land, and that Happy Days was returning this fall along with Laverne and Shirley. No where on here do I see anything about those shows, so I probably won't be watching WGN.

Don't believe rumors. Brady Bunch, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley were never coming. Some people with so much free time probably posted it on Wikipedia.

OK I give up...why does WGN still show LOCAL CHICAGO NEWS on their nationwide WGN America network? A way for WGN to "show off Chicago"?

I just don't think that there is much of an auidence for local Chicago news to be seen nationwide. How many people in Phoenix really care about local Chicago weather or traffic on I-90? Now before one says "..why there are people who have ties to the area who no longer live in Chicago..". Fine but these people can check out Chicago happenings such as news and weather online now. Why waste time on WGN America for this?

Besides WGN already offers a local channel in Chicago for their audience..that is where ALL of WGN Newscasts should be located at.
