Perfect Strangers Joins ION Television in October; Peachtree TV Launch Schedule; TV Land Schedule Changes, Includes Return of Night Court

It is schedules galore here on SitcomsOnline on a Friday! We have not one, not two, but three schedules to give you today! First up, we will start with ION Television! ION will FINALLY give us the show that I (and I know many other fans have been asking about)...Perfect Strangers! That's right Larry and Balki return to primetime and will air Mon-Thurs at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT starting October 1! And I'm not being ridiculous! You don't know how happy this makes me feel. This one is for you my good friend Linda (of PerfectStrangers.tv)!
Since Perfect Strangers will air at 8:30 p.m., that means Mama's Family will be shifted to 7:30 and 8pm, instead of 8-9pm. Designing Women, which was 7-8pm will now just be a half-hour at 7pm. Diagnosis Murder will be leaving the line-up and will be replaced by another old faithful...Doc, Mon-Fri at 6pm.
Then starting October 8, 48 Hours will join the line-up and will air Monday and Wednesday nights at 10PM. Tuesday nights will be Sue Thomas F.B.Eye and Thursday nights will be more Doc. This means starting Oct. 8 The Wonder Years will be off the line-up. Still no sign of the rescheduled Firebrand TV.

Continuing our massive Friday of schedules, we move on Peachtree TV. Peachtree TV is of course the new WTBS in Atlanta. Their new call letters will be WPCH. Their launch schedule starts October 1 and will have sitcoms all day long! Among the highlights are Diff'rent Strokes from 8-9am, All in the Family from 9-10am, The Jeffersons from 11am-12pm, Sanford & Son from 12-1pm, and The Cosby Show from 2-3pm. New game show Temptation will air 10-11am, the only non-sitcom from 7am-8pm. Looking at that show's ratings, it will be gone soon anyway. In the Heat of the Night will air late nights and weekends, and America's Funniest Home Videos will air on weekends.
Atlanta just got a bit better! They are not close to Chicago's ME-TV yet, but this is a start! To view the FULL schedules, I urge you to click HERE!

Finally, the other day we told you the new regular schedule for TV Land November that was starting on Oct. 29. Guess what? It will start on Oct. 1 now! Everything will be the same as that schedule we gave you but the 8-10pm weekday marathons and Designing Women don't start until week of Oct. 15. And also Wednesday mornings 7-8am will be Night Court now instead of Gunsmoke! Until Designing Women comes, 11am will be an extra Green Acres and 1:45am will be an extra Three's Company.
I urge you to click here to see the revised October schedule that will go into November as well!
