Well, looks like the CBS shows are expiring. This will be even more evident if Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Mork & Mindy are removed from weekends. Also, Gimme a Break returning to 5pm Weekdays...

They should add Gidget and The Flying Nun to the Saturday afternoon/evening lineup.

I wish Antenna TV didn't hate Jack Benny so much, would easily take him over dumb McHale's Navy in the noon hour. He does not have to be always paired with Burns and Allen just because they were good friends... It's not like they are putting another female starring show at noon between Hazel and Jeannie either. They will be unwatchable there once That Girl moves, but that might be fine with the longtime Andy Griffith hour on my FOX there (while they are in black and white seasons anyway). It is good to see Barney Miller get a primetime hour back (good riddance to Archie Bunker), and Coach switching places with Designing Women is great. Here I thought Who's the Boss? was doing well. The new 5-7PM is an awful downgrade, but that's a trade I will take for Barney Miller back. New weekend schedule not known yet, would be nice if Wings replaced Dear John Sundays at 11:00 and My Two Dads replaced The Hogan Family at 7:00. It won't start until April 17 with whatever marathon the 10th has.

It would be nice to see Jack Benny atleast air 12AM-1AM Saturdayís. Moving Dennis the Menace to 2AM-3AM on Saturdayís and Mchales Navy at 3AM-4AM on Saturdayís.

I agree it would be nice to see The Flying Nun & Gidget & The Monkeeís Return to Antenna TV!

I still get Antenna TV in good ole full-screen SD, so it must be your local channel's equipment. I'll cross my fingers that here they keep the "old" setup.

I was getting Antenna TV with a full screen picture until around the time Nexstar took over. So I don't know if Nexstar is to blame for the change in picture size or if it's the local affiliate.

Why repeat Bewitched and Jeannie in the afternoon and the shows from 2am-5am? I would rather they keep Who’s the Boss?, Growing Pains and The Facts of Life on weekdays, even in the graveyard slots. I knew Who’s the Boss? wouldn’t last long on weekdays since it doesn’t seem to do well in syndication but I wasn’t expecting it off the weekday lineup altogether already. I thought The Facts of Life would’ve had a more successful run weekdays, too.

Oh no !!! Who's the boss is only going to be on Sundays ! And replaced with Gimme a break! I like GAB but I like Who's the boss better and it was new! Gimme a break has played on Antenna for a while ! That girl going to One day at a times slot ! I love That girl ! I can watch it 3 days a week, and One day at a time at 3 my time, that can only be 3 days a week too cause of work and I have to choose between ODAAT and Friends on TBS !

I'm really upset about Who's the boss ! I will have to remember to watch it on Sunday, usually I watch METV on Sundays !

I feel the same way a lot of you do about Whoís The Boss?. My thought is perhaps they are getting ready to launch ATV 80ís. Perhaps Whoís The Boss? Will be a big player on the new ATV (80)ís channel. Reduced airring times will make it look fresher on ATV (80)ís.

In the same breath Iím happy to see Antenna TV Returning to its Classical ways of more (50ís & 60ís & 70ís).

I see Alice has consistently been in Antenna's TV weekday primetime schedule for over a year now. 7pm to 9pm

I know!!! I can't believe it ! I really thought it would do well on Antenna! I thought lots of people would enjoy it and it would stay on Antenna and be popular ! I'm really sad! I have a big crush on Tony and it is also a cute, funny show besides that !

I imagine the overall ratings for outlets like Antenna TV and MeTV aren't that grand (live ratings in general are stinky), so I wonder what a show would have to get to consider it doing well enough for the prime slots.

I usually tune out of Alice once the Flo era ends ("Flo's Farewell airs tonight at 7 p.m. EST). Flo isn't the only character I like; it's just I find that cast dynamic stronger than the ones that followed.

Did Linda Lavin force Diane Ladd out too, or was she just a flop as Belle. Ironic since she was the otiginal Flo in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.

Watching the first Belle episode on Antenna now. Jolene grew on me, eventually.
