Antenna TV’s Fall 2014 Schedule

August 27th, 2014 Update:

It’s new fall schedule may underwhelm but Antenna TV has just announced it will be adding 15 shows to its lineup in 2015: Newhart, The Jeffersons, Mork & Mindy, One Day at a Time, Family Ties, Evening Shade, Leave it to Beaver, Doogie Howser, MD, Mr. Belvedere, Dear John, and and Small Wonder.

Original Post:

Unlike Me-TV, classic television digital specialty network Antenna TV apparently hasn’t done much to get the word out about its new fall schedule, which debuts Monday, September 1st. Last week Me-TV launched a splashy web page about its Fall 2014 lineup. So far, it looks like Antenna TV has just posted a PDF of its schedule to its Facebook page and website.

Antenna TV isn’t adding any new shows next month, unless you count its Saturday educational/information programming. A number of shows are being shuffled around. Hazel will be leaving the schedule while more recent sitcoms The Nanny and Married with Children will be returning after almost a year’s absence. To be fair, I don’t watch a lot of Antenna TV so I can’t say whether there has been any on-air promotion.

Take a look at the new schedule and hit the comments with your thoughts.

  1. I’m glad to see Bachelor father in the afternoon—it is surprisingly well written (aside from the racism of the “house boy”–although Peter does get quite a bit of normal storylines along with ones that make you cringe.)and Noreen Corcoran is a very refreshing actress.

    And Barney Miller is back, so that’s kind of fun. Besides that, I’m glad to see that they kept the hour block of Bewitched on weekday evenings.

  2. Glad to see The Patty Duke Show, Burns and Allen and Rin Tin Tin all staying among others. Would really like to see Antenna pick up Love That Bob/The Bob Cummings Show since they have Bachelor Father.

  3. I love the Norman Lear shows except for Good Times. Good Times was only watchable for the first two seasons. After John Amos was let go from the series the show tanked big time; and with Esther Rolle’s absence from the series the show was completely unwatchable.

    Is there any way that Antenna TV can play episodes of Three’s Company that aren’t so badly butchered for extra commercial time? It’s not as bad as TVLand’s practice of shaving five to six minutes off of these episodes, but it’s still a real bummer to watch this show and see the obvious cuts.

    1. “Good Times” was not a bad show, but Jimmie Walker’s character was so buffoonish it tainted the show. I loved Ja Net Dubois, Bernadette Stanis, Ralph Carter, Johnny Brown and Janet Jackson. They were all very good!

      1. Good Times was a great show. the show got better after John amos left, it was Jimmy Walkers show plain and simple, and the rest of the cast was great. The whole John Amos was the heart of the show revisionist history bs is so outa wack. If Amos was the draw then you’d all would have followed him to ABC on Future Cop in 1977.

  4. Antenna TV just announced it will be adding 11 shows to its schedule in 2015: Newhart, The Jeffersons, Mork & Mindy, One Day at a Time, Family Ties, Evening Shade, Leave it to Beaver, Doogie Howser, MD, Mr. Belvedere, Dear John, and and Small Wonder.

    Read the full press release here.

    1. I don’t see Mister Ed or Here Come the Brides or Alfred Hitchcock Presents! The line up has been butchered and a ‘younger’ audience is not going to like the shows from the 80’s and 90’s. There is a ton of film and television media available so why do the ‘powers that be choose utter garbage?

      I am considering letting the pets watch PBS during the day!

  5. You have great shows like married with children and wkrp, but you put them on too late for some of us that have to get up.

  6. I am sorry to see they took Hazel and Jack benny off of there schedule between 4am and 6 pm.

  7. I’m beginning to think that Antenna TV has jumped the shark by airing some of the worst TV shows ever to disgrace the airwaves, that being “Married With Children” and “The Nanny.”

    Just because these shows are 20 years old does NOT make them classics! The ’80s, ’90s to current day has given us some of the worst programming ever.

    Now I see the doodle-brains in charge of programming at Antenna TV are digging themselves a deeper grave with future rubbish like “Dear John,” “Small Wonder,” “Doogie Howser,” etc, These shows are junk! Absolute junk! They were junk when they were new and will they will always remain junk!

    What’s next reruns of “Full House,” “The Apprentice” and “Wife Swap?” We all know what happened to Nickelodeon and TV Land. Will the same fate occur with Antenna TV????

    1. I agree with ‘Keep AntennaTV Watchable’ 100%. I hope they don’t dump some shows such as Burns and Allen, Jack Benny, Mister Ed, I Dream of Jeannie, Bachelor Father, Green Acres, Bewitched, Barney Miller, All in the Family, Gidget, The Flying Nun and The Nanny because I like Fran Drescher. I know they have to license these programs but they should have a clause that lets them renew without question.

      I have a 4 year old horse crazy daughter and I am tired of having to get up every day at 4am ET to tell her ‘5 minutes only’ because Mister Ed was moved to an ungodly hour for viewers on both coasts! Please put Mister Ed back where he was at 5pm. I need to get sleep and so does my kid!

      I dislike ‘Too Close for Comfort’ and ‘Different Strokes’ because they were dumb when they made them in the 80’s and they did not gain appeal 30 years later. They are not Classic Television and I hope if they are pulling shows to fit the new ones that these 2 are gone.

      I have always had a problem with watching ‘Classic Television’ that is not older than I am! I do keep the TV on for the pets and they love the true old shows which air in the late morning and until 8pm. They are totally Zenned so I know they are happy.

      Thanks AntennaTV!

    2. I agree. But consider this. Antenna TV Snoozed and lost. There is a new classic network that’s putting both Antenna and Cozy to shame – it’s called Decades. They started their launch in January and ran about 30 Shows – all beginning in the 50’s and 60’s (some ran for several years and entered into the 70’s – but is still considered a 60’s show) and one or two may even have been from the 40’s. And more to come. For some reason, Antenna TV thinks 80’s and 90’s (and truthfully some 70’s) programming is classic. Nonsense!!! But catch Decades!! you’ll love it!!

  8. Loving that Small Wonder and Doogie Howser will be in the line up. 2 of my fave shows as a kid! Thank you for adding some childhood memories :)

  9. I can’t believe Antenna TV would show “Small Wonder” and “Doogie Hauser.” These shows are garbage 1980’s material. I remember these shows when they were new and thought they were horrible! They aren’t classics even if they’re on the cusp of being 30 years old. If this is Antenna TV’s direction with future programming then they’ve lost me as a faithful viewer.

  10. Would it be possible for nostalgic TV networks to air some of those great, old, PBS instructional shows from the ’70? Inside Out, Think About, Wordsmith, All About You, Tony Salatan’s The Songbag, etc.

  11. The Jack Benny Program and Burns and Allen need to go. Neither of these shows are funny at all. I miss seeing Hazel. I don’t care for The Patty Duke Show. I’d love to see those terrific Normal Lear shows during late night. Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman and Forever Fernwood would be a treat to see rerun.

  12. Thank you so much for adding “One Day At A Time” to the schedule. It’s a sitcom that has rarely been seen in syndication and deserves to be shown.

  13. Still waiting for someone to bring back Fernwood/America 2-Night. I do not believe they have been on since Nick at Nite in the early 90’s and maybe briefly on TV Land around 2000.

  14. People who are adult and LOVE Bob Newhart ( the Vermont show) can’t seem to stay awake to veiw it at 10 and 1030,I being one of them at 63 years old. That time slot is a tad to late. Would you consider an earlier time such as 9 and 930? Concider the devoted people who loved this show back in the 1980s ,they are now in their 50s and 60s and older and are loyal viewers of Bob Newhart but only when they AIN’T sleeping. P.S. The odd couple series with Jack Klugmam and Tony Randell from the 1970s would also bring antenna t.v. a large group of loyal faithful viewers so long as its not on to late. In closing I’d just like to say ….”oh my look at the time” ! ZZZZzzzzzzzzzz………. :-)

  15. I loooove the fact that antenna tv will be adding
    Mork and mindy
    One day at a time

    They should add cheers wings etc

  16. I’m a huge fan of the British comedy “Are You Being Served. ” And the Mrs. Slocomb character played by Mollie Sudgen was amazing.

    Mrs. Slocomb on the phone calling her neighbor to check on her cat, Tiddles: Hello? Hello? Is that Mr. Akbar? Mrs. Slocomb here your nextdoor neighbor. I wonder, um, would you do me a favor? Would you go to my front door, bend down, and look through the letterbox, and if you can see my pussy would you drop a sardine on the mat? Why no Mr. Akbar I’m at work. Oh, hello? Hello? Oh, somebody’s cut us off.

    Mrs. Slocomb speaking sternly to Capt. Peacock about not getting home too late: And I hope we’re not going to be late again tonight because I left Winston clinging to the curtain ring. He refuses to come down. The mere sight of my pussy drives him mad!

    Mr. Lucas’ response: Oh, you have a border Mrs. Slocomb?

    Mrs. Slocomb replies: No, no, no. Winston is my canary.

    Are You Neing Served is the greatest comedy ever made. If only Antenna or Me TV had the rights to show this gem of a show there’d be a lot of happy campers out there.
