What comes after a fun Summer of Me? Why, it's fall, with its crisp air, new autumn colors, holidays and new activities. The fall also brings a change in the MeTV schedule.
Beginning Labor Day, Monday, September 5, MeTV welcomes some new and familiar faces to our television lineup. All of our weekday primetime favorites like Gilligan, Andy and Hogan remain. Joining the morning lineup is a certain beloved talking horse. On Saturdays, two cool characters from the Wild (wild) West return, while the adventure continues into late night with our new Red Eye Sci-Fi slate.
Here are more details about the shows joining the MeTV schedule.
Kicking off the new schedule is Mister Ed, who starts your weekdays at 6AM | 5C, leading into the return of I Love Lucy at 6:30AM | 5:30C.
On Saturdays, our Most Wanted Westerns block has the perfect transition into Super Sci-Fi Saturday at 6PM | 5C with The Wild Wild West, the classic steampunk spy-fi adventure that blends Western and science fiction. Beginning October 1, Maverick deals his way into the game at 10AM | 9C. Robert Culp gets the tumbleweed rolling with Trackdown at 8AM | 7C.
The fantastic voyages continue following Super Sci-Fi Saturday with Red Eye Sci-Fi. Irwin Allen is the king of the block, as you can watch his classics Land of the Giants (1AM | 12C), The Time Tunnel (2AM | 1C), Lost in Space (3AM | 2C) and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (4AM | 3C) back to back to back to back. Taking you to daybreak is Planet of the Apes at 5AM | 4C.
We are also excited to add Sledge Hammer! The satirical and uproarious series from the mid-'80s poked loving fun at the action stars of the era. Two episodes can be see Sunday night at 2AM | 1C.
And there's more! Check out the full schedule for all the changes.
