Schedule Updates for TV Land and Nick at Nite; Who's the Boss? Scores for ION!

Late on Friday both TV Land and Nick at Nite issued schedule changes. TV Land will make some changes effective Monday, August 20. The Summer Cocktail Party marathons will be ending. Changes include, M*A*S*H coming to mornings also now from 7-8am on weekdays but Wednesdays will be What's Happening Now!!, Cheers moves up a half-hour to 8am Tues-Fri, All in the Family at 8:30am Tues-Fri, The Jeffersons & Leave it to Beaver round out the morning schedule from 9-10am Tues-Fri. Mon-Thurs primetime will also change a bit: The Jeffersons from 9-10pm, Sanford & Son from 10-11pm, and M*A*S*H from 11p-12a (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition remains on Tues). Mon-Fri late night will now be Sanford & Son at 12:05am, back to back Three's Company, The Jeffersons, and Good Times from 12:35am-4am. On Tuesday nights, the times are on time, so the extra half-hour at 1:30am is The Munsters, its only slot now. Another Sanford & Son at 4am, All in the Family at 4:30am, and back to back I Love Lucy (Mon-Thurs, The Andy Griffith Show is on Fridays) from 5-6am. Weekend changes include Green Acres at 8am and back to back Leave it to Beaver episodes from 9-10am.
These changes are likely to spill over to September, but afternoons will be altered a bit as the Elvis movie will not be there in September. For now view these August 20 changes by clicking HERE!

Nick at Nite's change is for the week of Aug. 13. The wall to wall summer marathon that week is now The Cosby Show instead of Full House. We will have their September line-up shortly with new shows Home Improvement and George Lopez.

Tony Micelli and the gang have made their mark on ION Television...big time! ION Television scored a homerun for its launch of the 80s sitcom Who's the Boss? starring Tony Danza, Judith Light, and Alyssa Milano. Who cares about the Barry Bonds record, as Tony Micelli has been doing it longer than Barry.
Primetime airings of Who's the Boss? have delivered significant ratings increases among key adult demographics on ION Television. In the first two weeks following the popular program's July 9 debut, viewership in its 9-10 PM timeslot season-to-date increased 41 percent in women 25-54, and 33 percent in adults 25-54.
During the weeks of July 9 and 16, Who's the Boss? delivered 175,000 household impressions for women 25-54, and 259,000 impressions for adults 25-54, the highest weekly impressions performance in the 9-10 PM hour season-to-date.
Benefiting from a solid Who's the Boss? lead-in, Wonder Years enjoyed a six percent ratings increase in households and women 25-54 in its 10-11 PM timeslot during the weeks of July 9 and 16, representing a season-to-date increase of 22 percent.
We hope to have ION Television's September lineup this week...maybe by tomorrow. So come on back!
