More Last Minute Changes at TV Land; Other News of the Day

TV Land has announced more last minute schedule changes. Starting next Wednesday (July 12), they will add a mini-marathon block on weekdays from 11am-2pm. They basically will be second airings of the 12-4am marathons (so Beaver on Mondays, Three's Company on Tuesdays, Sanford & Son on Wednesdays, Good Times on Thursdays and All in the Family on Fridays; Benson, Munsters will not encore). The new encore 11am-2pm mini-marathon encore block means Cheers, Wings, and 227 will be off the weekday line-up but they will air once a week on weekends in the 1-2pm hour. Night Court also will be a part of that hour block. What's Happening!! will be off the line-up, unfortunately. Benson will be losing its 11:30 p.m. slot for another Three's Company airing. Benson's 12-4am mini-marathon will also move from Monday nights to Friday nights, swapping with Three's Company's. Again, ratings probably drove these changes.
