hmmm....I'm trying to decide how to take this. Looks like Hillbillies is doing well, and apparently Green Acres as well with it being moved up 2 hours. Or maybe 'Acres' isn't and they're trying to boost its performance by sandwiching it between 2 successful shows.

As for PRIME....they'd might as well drop that. It's no different than the rest of the schedule, almost.

Pavan, just a question. Any news on Beaver yet? Are they low on plays? I remember a similar situation with Three's Company...it was barely airing and got renewed, and the issues was airplays. I'm shocked that it would be doing so poorly to just air weekends. Seems it'd at least get a 5AM slot. I would love to have seen LITB 4-5 instead of a second Bonanza..

I think this schedule change is possibly a result of TV Land running low on Andy Griffith plays. Andy was on most nights 7-10, now it's just 8-10. Reducing it from early evening may ensure that they will have enough plays to keep it in primetime through the end of the year when the contract runs out.

I don't see how Beaver could be that low on airplays. They've always seemed to air it rather "moderately". I just don't think it fits with the current weekday blocks and so they just use it weekends.

Maybe so about LITB. However, I wouldn't mind seeing it air against The Brady Bunch in a night block, maybe 5-6AM, at least to keep it on the weekly schedule.

FWIW, there are two pre-1980 shows coming later this year according to The Link.

Thanks.

I think (maybe wishfully) they'll renew - they renewed Brady Bunch and All in the Family and they were barely airing at those times and weren't huge performers. LITB has always done fairly well and serves as a good backup if something flops.

So does anyone think JSM will ever come back? It's on TBS anyway, I really hope not.

As for these 2 pre-80s shows coming later this year....I have this feeling that one of them is going to be The Munsters. They could swap JSM for Munsters like they did with 227/Benson for Addams/Munsters several years back through Program Exchange.

I would rather this not be the case (we need some "newer" old shows that aren't overplayed), but they could easily swap through The Program Exchange and they have always favored Munsters, bringing them back multiple times after it expired, extending the contract, etc. I think it always did OK and would be a good filler/morning show.

The tribute awards included the following:

THE LEGEND AWARD

This award is presented to an entertainer or a television show that has stood the test of time and ranks among the most memorable and celebrated in television and movie history.

THE LEGACY OF LAUGHTER AWARD
Presented by Amy Poehler, this award is presented to an entertainer whose comedic work continues to serve as an inspiration and a guiding force. This year's recipient is Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The recipient of the Lucille Ball Legacy of Laughter award serves as an ideal appreciation to those who have provided the invigorating healing power of laughter. The first recipient to have received such an award was Lucille Ball for her awe-inspiring work which continues to set a precedent for those who receive this great honor.

THE IMPACT AWARD
Martin Sheen presented this award this award to "M*A*S*H," a show that offered both entertainment and enlightenment, always striving for humor and humanity, with comedy that reflected reality. Sheen presented the award to the cast - Alan Alda, Mike Farrell, Allan Arbus, Jeff Maxwell, Kellye Nakahara-Wallet, Loretta Swit, Mike Farrell, Wayne Rogers, William Christopher, producers Burt Metcalfe, Gene Reynolds and Larry Gelbart.

THE INNOVATOR AWARD
Dr. Phil presented this award to "Married with Children," a series whose influence is still felt and evident in television today. This award is most exemplified by a show that carved out new territory, re-defining elements of the genre and opening pathways for others to follow. Cast members Ed O'Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate, David Faustino and Ted McGinley.

THE ICON AWARD
"ER," one of television's longest running dramas, will be presented the Icon Award by Neil Patrick Harris for the way that it changed television with its fast-paced steadi-cam shots as well as for its amazing and gritty storylines.

THE HERO AWARD
Matthew McConaughey presented the cast of "Magnum P.I." -- Tom Selleck, Roger Mosley and Larry Manetti -- with The Hero Award. This salutes a show whose crime-solving feats were astounding, yet remained thoroughly authentic, offering equal parts of street smarts, wit and charisma - in this case, all wrapped up in floral prints.

THE POP CULTURE AWARD
Will Ferrell presented Sid and Marty Krofft with the Pop Culture Award, which is presented to a producer whose body of work has crossed the line from ordinary to pop culture status. The tribute also included a performance by Cyndi Lauper as well as Clint Black and Barry Williams ("The Brady Bunch") and characters from their famous series including "H.R.

THE FUTURE CLASSIC AWARD
Presented by Teri Hatcher, this award was unveiled by TV Land in 1998 and is presented annually to a show that best exemplifies the qualities of a television show that will stand the test of time and become a television classic.

From the beginning, Earth, Wind & Fire brought popular music something new and thrilling - a jazzy, soulful uplifting spirit all their own. Their work transcends generations and is recognized by peers and fans all over the world.

As in past its PRIME?-LOL. Yeah, they definitely should.

In fact, their official name could be "PRIME: We're past it."

IMO they should drop the PRIME thing. They are so far away from the original concept of it and it's just confusing.

OK, dumb question, I haven't been keeping up - when did Scrubs leave?

Hope it is not THAT. Munsters has been well overplayed. What about the return of The Bob Newhart Show or Mary Tyler Moore? hmmmmmm, even Petticoat Junction or Family Affair?

Those aren't Program Exchange shows. I was saying they could swap the JSM contract through PE for another one of their shows, like they did 227/Benson for Munsters/Addams in 2007.

I'm not in to the idea either, but of these shows (http://programexchange.com/programs.asp?category=2), thinking their way, if a swap was to be done you know it would be The Munsters. It has always been a decent performer, they're always getting rid of it and bringing it back. Heck, it'd be better than having JSM collecting dust and at least it's old. Just my thought. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see those too, just my thought on it. Swap a ratings disaster that isn't even airing for something that can air and got at least decent ratings and made decent marathons or a filler.
