Default TV Land and Nick@Nite at TCA July 2006

TV Land to Debut New TVLand.com in August

Website Relaunch Features New Broadband Video Player that Brings the Good, Weird and Wonderful Things You Love About TV to the Web TVLand.com First to Feature Free Streaming Full-Length Episodes of
Cult-Classic Star Trek Series on the Web

PASADENA, Calif., July 13 -- TV Land will relaunch the network's website, TVLand.com on August 24, 2006, it was announced today by Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. Just like the network, the website will give viewers access to a library of timeless TV shows and off-beat content sure to please passionate TV fans. The centerpiece of the new TVLand.com is a broadband video player that enables users to experience the good, weird and wonderful content on their very own computer screens.
From a guy who performs TV theme songs with his hands to a collection of TV
Land's critically-acclaimed interstitial series as well as hundreds of exclusive celebrity interviews, the new TVLand.com will be an entertainment destination for Baby Boomers, the first generation to grow up with television.

"TVLand.com has been serving classic TV fans on the Web for nearly ten
years," states Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Now,
we have created an online destination that not only fulfills what viewers
love about TV Land, but also features the fun and off-beat content that
doesn't lend itself to a linear television schedule. This site will serve as an entertainment resource rather than just another screen on which to watch programming. It is truly unique and very exciting and is the natural next step in TV Land's evolution."

As in the past, TVLand.com will continue to offer exclusive sneak peeks
of upcoming TV Land acquired and original programming, games, community
bulletin boards, and information about classic TV shows and stars.

Additionally, the broadband player will feature several categories of video
including:

* Full-length Episodes: Each month, a new cornerstone programming event
will be featured on the player. The showcase will allow users to view
full-length episodes of the featured series as well as access to shows
that have never been available for free on the Web including Star Trek.
The schedule of upcoming series available for viewing includes un-cut
episodes and bonus footage of Daniel Boone as well as select moments,
outtakes and bloopers from Three's Company in September. Mr. T's
upcoming original series I Pity The Fool will be the site's primary focus in October; Star Trek in November; and in December, the work of Marlo Thomas will be offered including the celebrated special Free To Be
You And Me and full episodes and bonus footage from That Girl.

* TV Land Originals: Episodes and clips from TV Land's original
programming including the TV Land Awards, Sit Down Comedy with David
Steinberg and I Pity The Fool. Additionally, fans can find sneak peeks
of upcoming episodes, previews and clips.

* Retromercials: Some of the best programming -- and most memorable
catchphrases -- comes from Madison Avenue's best commercials. Check out this channel to see the classics that allow fans to relive great lines
like "You sunk my battleship," "Pretty sneaky, Sis" and "Where's the
Beef?" Dozens of instantly recognizable TV ads from: Wendy's, Starkist
Tuna, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (the kids who said "You got your
chocolate in my peanut butter" were Donny Most and Robbie Benson!), Raid Bugs, Cracker Jack starring Jack Guilford, 9 Lives Cat Food Company,
Battleship, Connect Four and many more will be available on the player.

* Promos: TV Land is opening up the vault and uploading classic and recent promos that viewers know and love. From selling an imaginary product
called "Twip," to the world's shortest fully-realized situation comedy
(60 Second Sitcoms), TVLand.com reminds viewers why they love classic TV so much. Additionally, fans can access TV Land's newest series of
interstitials hosted by the CBS Early Show correspondent Dave Price
which explores the impact of television on pop culture entitled "Here's
the Story." This portion of the player will also feature "TV Land
Rocks," a mockumentary series focusing on fictitious classic TV tribute
bands including a Gilligan's Island tribute band called "Radio
Castaways," a song performed by the Addams Family band entitled
"Pugsley's Sister" and a behind-the-scenes documentary on the Little
House on the Prairie tribute band called "The Half Pints."

* Classic Clips: TV Land has the most beloved shows on television -- now
TV fans can expect to see some of their favorite scenes in this portion
of the player. This is the ultimate "best of" tool for TV fans
including clips from: the "Vitameatavegemin" and "Chocolate Factory"
episodes of I Love Lucy; the famous scene from The Andy Griffith Show
when a goat full of dynamite terrorizes Mayberry; Good Times' emotional
moment when the Evans family is rocked by the death of James; Sammy
Davis, Jr. kissing Archie Bunker on All in the Family; Marsha's famous
"Oh my nose" scene on The Brady Bunch; Sanford and Son's Fred meeting Lena Horne; Sam and Diane's first kiss on Cheers along with Woody's
"Kelly, Kelly, Kelly" song; Fonzie jumping the shark on Happy Days;
Geraldine and Reverend Leroy clips from Flip Wilson; and the Little
House on the Prairie clip in which Nellie flies down a hill and lands in
a pond. See these clips and more along with information on how TV fans
can tune-in to see full episodes of their favorite series on-air.

* Celebrity Interviews: Hundreds of exclusive celebrity interviews can be
found on this channel of the player including Mary Tyler Moore, Mr. T,
Jaclyn Smith, Drew Carey, Ted Danson, Cedric the Entertainer and many
more, as they talk about their lives and experiences in entertainment.

Mr. T Puts the 'T' in TV Land When I Pity the Fool Premieres on October 11

Viewers Will Have Multi-platform Access to TV Icon Including Live Video Chat With Mr. T Immediately Following On-Air Premiere

PASADENA, Calif., July 13 -- Watch out Dr. Phil, move over Oprah and step aside Tony Robbins, TV Land today announced that Mr. T's new original series I Pity The Fool, will premiere on the network on October 11 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). In I Pity The Fool, produced by Lionsgate, in association with Left/Right Films and Remag Guerilla, Mr. T is on a mission to change people's lives by dispensing his own brand of advice in classic T-style in every city with fools to pity.

"Life can offer lots of challenges and sometimes you just can't do it
alone," says Mr. T. "I understand what it takes to overcome adversity and
I'm ready to do my part to help people rise above their troubles and come
out like new!"

"Mr. T is such an enormous pop culture icon and is one of the most
beloved stars of our time," states Sal Maniaci, Senior Vice President,
Development and Original Production, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "We're
thrilled to be working with him on a show that lets people see the true T
and see him experience first-hand funny situations and how motivational he
can be."

I Pity The Fool features this classic TV icon in a role that he is very
comfortable with -- #1 Jibber Jabber Attacker. Whether he's teaching fools
some basic rules or being a motivator for procrastinators, Mr. T becomes
immersed in the situation at-hand and becomes a catalyst for change.
Upcoming episodes include Mr. T at a car dealership in New York seeking to
motivate the employees and improve the relationship between a father and
son- in-law working together, as well as Mr. T visiting a dance school to
help the students ensure that they will be able to participate in their
recital despite their instructor's lack of organizational skills.

Additionally, viewers can enjoy I Pity The Fool on their computer
screens as TVLand.com gives fans several different ways to get their fill
of T. Immediately following the premiere of the show, at 10:30 p.m. ET,
fans will be able to interact with Mr. T himself in a live video chat on
the site. Prior to the chat, visitors to the site will see behind-the-scenes video, sneak peeks of episodes and footage produced specifically for the Web. Other I Pity The Fool offerings on TVLand.com will include "Rules for Fools" -- video clips of Mr. T dispensing advice on finances, dating, hygiene, listening, etc., -- and video T-mail, enabling fans to send video e-cards for birthdays, new parents, and more.

Executive producers for I Pity The Fool are Stephen Belafonte (Thank
You for Smoking, Never Die Alone), Ken Druckerman (Growing Up Gotti), and
Banks Tarver (Growing Up Gotti).

The deal for Mr. T was brokered by The Buchwald Agency.

Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) is the leading independent filmed entertainment
studio. It won the Best Picture Academy Award for CRASH this year, has
generated more than 300 million dollars at the domestic theatrical box

Nick at Nite Goes Back to School When A Different World Premieres on the Network on July 19

PASADENA, Calif., July 13 -- Prepare for big laughs on campus when the ensemble comedy A Different World joins the Nick at Nite line-up on Wednesday, July 19, 2006 with a four-hour marathon beginning at
10 p.m. ET/PT. The sitcom, the first of its kind, introduced viewers to
life at a historically black college and tackled social and political
issues rarely explored on television. A week-long marathon is being planned for the end of August. The series will air in its regularly scheduled timeslot of 10 p.m. on weekends beginning July 22 and continue to air throughout the summer on Wednesday nights. The show will air seven days a week at 10 p.m. starting this September.

"A Different World is a ground-breaking series that truly had one of
the most talented ensemble casts on television," states Larry W. Jones,
President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Filled with cultural vibrancy, the
show explored so many important issues of our time and we are proud to add
it to Nick at Nite's line-up."

This comedy was a spin-off of the hugely popular The Cosby Show and
aired on NBC from 1987 to 1993. Set at the fictitious, historically black
Hillman College in the South, it centered around Denise Huxtable (Lisa
Bonet), one of the four daughters on The Cosby Show. Denise is constantly
trying to adjust to the changes of living away from home on her own as well
as deal with her roommates Jaleesa (Dawnn Lewis), a young divorcee and
Maggie (Marisa Tomei), a free-spirited and naive girl who also happens to
be one of the only white students on campus. Other characters in the series
include Whitley Gilbert (Jasmine Guy), a rich Southern belle; Dwayne Wayne
(Kadeem Hardison), a nerdy but fast-talking New Yorker, his best friend Ron
Johnson (Darryl Bell) and Walter Oakes (Sinbad), who was the dorm director.
There were various changes after the first season when Lisa Bonet left the
series. Debbie Allen took over as producer and director after the first
season, turning the show into one which explored more social and political
issues. Controversial topics such as AIDS, racial discrimination, date rape
and the 1992 Los Angeles uprisings were all addressed, and several new
characters were added, such as: Kim Reese (Charnele Brown), a pre-med
student; Mr. Gaines (Lou Myers), the cafeteria cook; Col. Taylor (Glynn
Turman), the campus ROTC commander; Freddie Brooks (Cree Summer), an
environmental activist and Lena James (Jada Pinkett), a feisty freshman
from Baltimore. The series also gave more prominence to the romantic
relationship of Dwayne and Whitley, who became the show's main stars.

Currently seen in more than 88 million U.S. homes, Nick at Nite
features timeless hit comedies: The Cosby Show -- this Emmy Award-winning
sitcom is one of the network's highest-rated shows: Full House -- this
popular family comedy launched on the network in October and is one of the
highest-rated and most popular syndicated programs in television; and
Roseanne, one of the most talk-about and celebrated sitcoms in television
history.

Yes, Star Trek will be on both TV Land and TVLand.com. As well as I Pity the Fool, and possibly Daniel Boone. No word on the Three's Company spin-offs or on That Girl, but That Girl will for sure be on TVLand.com in December.

I'm glad Star Trek will be on TV Land and TVLand.com....if That Girl was to come to TV Land.....one can only wish!!!! If it's just online, though, I'll be happy.

Thanks for these updates, Pav!

If TVLand would bring "That Girl" to the actual TV channel, I'd die, just plain die. It'd be enough to make me forget the fact that this TVLand Broadband thing was waaaaaay overhyped for what it really is.

JT, there are more shows, but the ones announced are the "featured" shows for each month. I'm so hyped about September! Clips, outtakes, bloopers and the spinoffs possibly of Three's Company! Rare stuff!

"That Girl" on TV Land again would be the best Christmas present any channel could possibly give, at least for me. I'm a little surprised at Daniel Boone, though...didn't see that coming. I guess if it came to the on-air channel, they'd give it a weekend airing or something.

Why would someone want to watch TV on a computer unless they are on airplane?

I feel the same way, Solomon. That's why I hope some (especially That Girl) of the shows will air on TV Land as well. Sitting at the computer for a long time makes my eyes hurt..
