M*A*S*H and Mayberry are coming to Sunday nights on MeTV
Make it a family viewing night with two beloved sitcom classics. Beginning November 28.
Mayberry and M*A*S*H, two mainstays of MeTV. These brilliant television shows — calling them "sitcoms" hardly does them justice — continue to pull our heartstrings and take us to a different place and time. As different as they might be, one thing they do have in common is that they are timeless classics.
The Andy Griffith Show and M*A*S*H already delight viewers of all ages on weeknights. Now the two series are coming to Sunday evenings, beginning November 28. Settle down for supper with your loved ones and step back into Mayberry and the 4077th.
Catch one full hour of The Andy Griffith Show at 6PM | 5C, followed by a full hour of M*A*S*H at 7PM | 6C.
After our visits to Mayberry and the M*A*S*H unit, Monk is on the case! The neurotic Sherlock solves crimes in San Francisco for two full hours beginning at 8PM | 7C. (Why is Columbo no longer on MeTV? Mystery solved here.)
Afterward, stay tuned for vivacious variety courtesy of The Ed Sullivan Show at 10PM | 9C and Carol Burnett at 11PM | 10C.
It's an evening of warmth, whodunnits and wisecracks — only on MeTV starting November 28!
Watch M*A*S*H on MeTV!
Weeknights at 6 PM, Sundays at 7 PM*available in most MeTV markets
The rules for actors (various billings) are a little different, but can be from one to four months after showing. Details are in this link.
Keep in mind that contracts are individually negotiated. For some, an extended payout is good. For others, they might want a percentage of the production. And for others, just higher, more immediate compensation up front. Depends on the actor's needs, and their value.
They put on Baa Baa Blacksheep with the usual fanfare on Sunday night, it didn't last more than a year. I don't know if it got low ratings, orif having only 2 seasons was the issue. MASH and other long running shows, at least there's a long time between repeats. The Waltons takes almost a year to cycle through.
MacGuyver was on, I think in conjunction with th.e remake. I think it lasted only six months, till the schedule changed
Then METV aired the 24 ABC Columbo movies (1988 to 2003) in 2018 and 2019 while COZI broadcast the original NBC movies. The 2 diginets switched Columbo franchises starting January 2020.
Apparently METV won't even be allowed to acquire the rights to show the ABC Columbo movie series. Truly the end of an era.
I would like to know the future of Columbo on COZI if anyone knows.
