It'd be nice if it came in January. I'm hoping for a completely revamped schedule from MeTV. It's okay to keep some things in place for a while, but to be honest keeping something in the same spot for years on end is beyond ridiculous. Hogan has been there what feels like three years. MASH I know for a fact has been there about six years, but it's probably closer to 7 or 8. It's been clogging the SAME exact spot for all those years. That is a problem. And yeah the afternoon westerns can go.

You may be right, as it's off the Antenna schedule effective January 2. I hope MeTV's schedule comes out soon.

There's a reason M*A*S*H has been in the same slot for years - it does well. Going back to it's early days in syndication, most stations ran it at 7 and/or 7:30pm as well. Also helps there is 250 odd episodes. It's one of the most successful shows from the 70's/80's in syndication. Heck it's also on WGN-America,TV LAND and SUNDANCE!

MeTV is unlikely to change any slot, or remove a show, that still does well. They just don't keep shows in a slot just to "clog" or tie-up a time slot. People continue to watch and advertisers continue to buy the air-time.

MeTV is successful for a reason, they know what works, and when and where it works. That's why you see some of the same series for the same shows year after year. MeTV is unlikely to revamp the whole line-up. Shows will stay where they do the best.

Some shows are what they call "evergreen" meaning they continue to be popular and do well year in and year out,decade after decade.

TV LAND ran HOGAN'S HEROES non-stop for over 5 years, and was the last show from the original line-up left when it ended it's long rerun. It also does well for MeTV.

Oh No This Is What Ruins Classic TV Stations, the so-called popular

It's lousy thinking like that that led to the disaster that is TV Land today. And worse, thinking this is just fine and the way of the world is even worse.

MUSH & Hogans Heroes both stink on ice and they are EVERYWHERE else, this is not the reason ME TV or for that matter why TV Land WAS created. It's these stations that were created and designed to show VINTAGE re: old classic TV shows that haven't been on or seen in years.

Real classics!, not shows that have run forever and have made everyone sick for just as long. No we don't need to accept crappy "popular" shows because we're told how popular they are (a statement I do NOT believe, by the way) what we want and why we go to classic TV stations is BECAUSE they show the programs all the other channels will not show. Their reason for being is to show classics not the so-called most popular crap out there.

I'm sure "Mush" is not a typo?

I've only seen one or two Hogans but they bored me to DEATH.

MASH isn't so bad, but should be rested so it can be replaced with other shows.

I think there's some sense to this, although I think there are some shows that should always be running. I don't think there's enough of those, though, that they would squeeze out other good shows if a station was determined to do that.* i think that the big problems now are (1) there's too many retro channels claiming to show classic TV; and, (2) what's being called classic has now reached the 80s and 90s - these are the dumbed-down programs that pretty much wiped out network TV and then cable stations. Now, like zombies, they're coming for the diginets.

I think part of MeTVs unusually stable schedule might be that Weigel has launched Heroes and Icons in the last couple of yesrs. It would have to cost quite a bit to program a whole schedule now.

*I think MeTV of 5-6 years ago is about the closest a station has come to this.

Don't think it was ever specifically said it was coming in January, just 2018.
