CBS STARS SHINE ON TV LAND
IN "TV LAND'S CBS PREMIERE WEEK"
BEGINNING MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH
NEW YORK, Sept. 7 -- CBS and TV Land announced today that the two networks will partner on-air the week of September 13-17 -- a week before the new CBS Fall schedule premieres -- for "TV Land's CBS Premiere Week." The week-long primetime salute will feature more than a dozen stars from new and established CBS shows as they celebrate premiere episodes and season opening episodes from some of Classic TV's most beloved programs. The partnership, which represents the latest such effort since the two networks became corporate siblings in 2000, will combine the star power of the current CBS line-up, including Everybody Loves Raymond and The King Of Queens, with the hit Classic TV sitcoms like The Andy Griffith Show and All in the Family seen daily on TV Land.
Throughout the week, viewers tuning into TV Land from 8PM - 10PM (ET/PT) will hear from CBS performers as they set up the classic TV episode and offer their own insights into each shows' continued popularity. Stars from the CBS line-up slated to appear on TV Land include Kevin James (King Of Queens), Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond), Peter Boyle (Everybody Loves Raymond), Jerry Stiller (King Of Queens), Jami Gertz (Still Standing), Mare Winningham (Clubhouse), Jason Alexander (Listen Up), Charlie Sheen (Two And A Half Men), Jon Cryer (Two And A Half Men), Malcolm Jamal-Warner (Listen Up) and several others. Among the shows TV Land will present throughout the week include The Andy Griffith Show, The Brady Bunch, Cheers, Happy Days, Three's Company, Leave It To Beaver and Sanford and Son.
�This premiere week stunt is part of our overall marketing strategy to generate valuable exposure and excitement as we lead right into the new season,� said George Schweitzer, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Communications, CBS. �By combining CBS�s top talent with the TV Land�s top programs -- many of them CBS classics -- it will be fun for our stars and fun for our viewers.�
"For TV Land viewers, there's nothing better than to see your favorite stars from today alongside the shows you've loved all your life," explained Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Quite frankly, without CBS, there would be no TV Land to air great shows like I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show and All in the Family. TV Land is honored to work with CBS to make this week a reality for our viewers."
