Programming Notes

Robin Roberts’s last show before leaving to get treatment for cancer will be on Friday Thursday. Starting Monday, “guest anchors, including Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and Katie Couric, will fill in for Roberts.”

The Count from Sesame Street died.

When the Hub launched, it had a Nick-at-Nite-style block of sitcom reruns from 8pm to Midnight: Family Ties, The Wonder Years, Doogie Howser, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and Batman. Two years later, those shows have been pushed into the wee hours of the night (or off the channel). This Fall, the Hub will strip Sliders at 10pm and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys at 11pm. 8pm to 10 will have a movie on Monday, and two-hour blocks of Sabrina on Tuesday, The Facts of Life on Wednesday, and ALF on Thursday.
