Digital specialty network Decades introduced a new weekday schedule earlier this month. When the diginet launched in 2015, its weekday schedule consisted of a six-hour block of themed programming aired four times each weekday. Over the past two years, Decades has moved away from this unusual scheduling philosophy. With the introduction of a traditional weekday schedule on March 5th, the daily theme has been completely abandoned.
The new weekday schedule includes an 8-hour “Television Across the Decades” sitcom block, airing from 9AM to 5PM ET. It features sitcoms like I Love Lucy, Our Miss Brooks, Petticoat Junction, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Bob Newhart Show. Decades also airs The Best of The Ed Sullivan Show, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, and The Dick Cavett Show.
The hour-long Decades original series Through The Decades airs three times each weekday: at 8AM ET, 8PM ET, and 11PM ET. There’s a two-hour block of movies and specials from 2-4AM ET, followed by a two-hour “Lost TV” block from 4-6AM ET. The “Lost TV” currently consists of The Loretta Young Show, Honey West, Mr. Lucky, and Colonel March of Scotland Yard.
On weekends, Decades airs “binge” marathons of various TV shows.
