Default Happy Days on no classic tv network

I don't get why happy days isn't on any classic tv networks anymore did they lose the rights to air them?

Maybe it's not being sold for syndication currently.

Me TV has the rights to Happy Days but treats it like dirt.

It's true. They didn't do anything when Erin Moran died, if I remember correctly. And I don't think they've aired it on a regular basis since the summer of 2017. I don't know why. It's a classic show, and a much better one than Hogan's Heroes that's been hogging up the 10pm timeslot for a few years now. I miss years ago when MeTV would have shows like Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, The Odd Couple, etc. in primetime but now they don't. And... 3 hours of Gilligan's Island on Sundays is very, very excessive. One hour is enough. It didn't even last that long. You could have 4 sitcoms including Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley during that time...go figure that they don't. Smh.

While MeTV treats it badly, where I live it's doing just fine. Happy Days is on CHCH TV every day at 5:30 after Cheers and it gets treated just fine. This week, its Facebook fans voted the show as having the #1 theme song among the shows on CHCH's daytime schedule, which also happen to include Hogan's Heroes, Laverne and Shirley, Mary Tyler Moore, I Love Lucy, and One Day At A Time.

Now if they could only use the weekends to do what Me TV does: 2 hours of the Brady Bunch, 3 hours of Gilligan's Island, 1 hour of the Monkees. I fail to see why it is such a bad idea.

How would someone know that MeTV holds the rights to Happy Days?

I've wondered about who owns Decades now. It was weird that the CBS owned stations would all drop Decades to pick up Weigel's Start. It would make more sense if the CBS group is planning to move Decades online.

On the other hand, Weigel describes its entities this way:

Quote:
Weigel is the leader in the multicast television network space with "MeTV," Memorable Entertainment Television, the number-one rated and distributed multicast network, as well as the "Movies!" Network in cooperation with the Fox Television Stations, the "DECADES" Network, the "H&I" Network and the “Start TV” Network in association with the CBS Television Stations.
They list their corporate partners, but none with respect to Decades. Maybe Weigel got full ownership as part of the deal for Start? I don't know. I wish TV reporters would keep up with the subchannels better.

Happy Days season 2 is on CBS All Access streaming. I just saw the first episode of that season, and it has the written out of the show, older brother.

In some odd ways, it has parallels to Family Matters.
-One kid in the family written out of the show.
-Change of direction with show, but probably more prominent with Happy Days.
-Non family member Fonzie taking over Happy Days. Non family member Urkel taking over Family Matters.

But the difference has White family and cast, where Family Matters has a Black family, Fonz being cool and Urkel being nerdy.

It would make sense for Happy Days on Decades if not MeTV. But I think even if CBS has a 50% share of Decades, it's likely managed by Weigel. CBS now has 100% of Pop, but Pop appears to be shows from the 90's forward.
