Even More TV Land Updates; Network Notes

I don't know what is with all these TV Land updates lately, but we have more today. TV Land has announced the Sept. 24-28 week-long marathon and it isn't The Beverly Hillbillies as I guessed unfortunately, it will be The Andy Griffith Show. So I was wrong. Let's hope that show comes in the future. Don't lose hope because it is likely to come. Anyway, Andy will air 8-11pm that week, but also its regular airings of 7-8pm and 11pm-12am will be there (yes it actually airs 12-1am in regular play, but not this week, as M*A*S*H will air 12-1am that week), so essentially the marathon is 7pm-12am.
Moving on to TV Land original programming, TV Land and Wilhelmina Models, Inc. announced a partnership to discover the next new face of the fashion industry. Documented in a six-part series tentatively titled The Next Great Supermodel, TV Land and Wilhelmina Models, Inc. will scour the country -- and put the would-be models to the test -- to find their next star: a woman 35 or over who exudes sophistication, beauty and confidence.
The Next Great Supermodel will premiere on TV Land in the Spring of 2008 and is being executive produced by Emmy Award Winner Allison Grodner (Big Brother, Blowout). The winner of the reality series competition will receive a lucrative modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc.

Effective immediately, as of Tues., Aug. 21 and Wed., Aug. 22, the time slots of ABC News programs i-CAUGHT & Primetime: Crime (Tues.) and NASCAR IN PRIMETIME & Primetime: The Outsiders (Wed.) are being flipped. Meanwhile, ABC has announced that they will indeed burn-off The Nine on abc.com. 9 episodes aired on television, with 4 still in the can. Episodes 10 and 11 launched yesterday I believe, with episode 12 coming Aug. 23 and episode 13 on Aug. 30. Go to abc.com to watch this. They have removed their video section for The Knights of Prosperity completely, so it doesn't look like we will ever see the final two episodes...let's pray for a DVD!
NBC will preview the upcoming syndicated game show Merv Griffin's Crosswords in primetime on Saturday, September 8 at 8:30PM ET/PT following the NBC Fall Preview Show. The first-run syndicated series will launch on various NBC owned-and-operated stations on Monday, September 10, 2007...check local listings for time and channel (here in NY, WNBC will air it back-to-back from 4-5pm).
