Nick@Nite Trims 'A Different World' Week-Long Marathon; CBS Adds Full Episodes to innertube

Nick@Nite today announced that they have trimmed the week-long A Different World Marathon, titled "Hillman College Reunion Week" from 10pm-2am for five nights to 10pm-12am for five nights. The five night event starts Monday, August 28 and ends Friday, September 1. No reason for the change, but it might have to do with the summer marathons now continuing that week. The summer marathons are slated to run until Sunday, September 3. A new schedule will start September 4, with 12-4am marathons each night. We will reveal that to you shortly. For all the details on the marathon trimming and the summer marathons for that week, click here.

CBS now will use its online broadband channel innertube to air shows a day after they premiere on CBS. 7 shows will be offered this way starting this fall! All three CSI series, NCIS, NUMB3RS, Survivor and Jericho. The latter two will have archived episodes for the entire season (if Jericho lasts that long, that is). The other five series will be available for four weeks after they broadcast on TV. Launched in May, innertube features a mix of short original programming, content related to the network's shows and full episodes of the reality show Big Brother: All-Stars. innertube is looking for the the same success as ABC's full episode streaming program that was a success this past May and June. It would be nice if a sitcom or two would pop-up, though. NBC is going to release information on its broadband channel DotComedy very soon. DotComedy.com is going to have episodes of classicNBC/Universal-owned sitcoms for free. I'd guess Leave it to Beaver, The Munsters, among others would be on it, but we shall see. I don't think NBC has plans as of yet to put some of its current shows online like CBS and ABC.
