WGN’s, WFLD’s new weekday fall lineups

Have WGN’s and WFLD’s weekday fall lineup, courtesy of Zap2it. Among the changes starting Sept. 10 (unless otherwise noted):

WGN:

-As noted before, Family Guy will air at 6:30 and 10, and Two and a Half Men will air at 6 and 10:30.

– Teacher vs. student – The Steve Wilkos Show will air at 2 p.m. -up against Jerry Springer on WPWR-TV at the same time. Wilkos was the bouncer on Springer breaking up the fights.

Degrassi: The Next Generation will be stacked on weekends, running from 8:30 a.m to Noon Sunday mornings beginning Sept. 9 (Why? Do we need any more My Wife & Kids reruns?)

– In a surprise, Friends is only airing at 11:30 p.m. The program has been double-runned on the station since its syndication debut in 1998.

– In the lame duck portion of the schedule, Everybody Loves Raymond moves to 12:30 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. (Raymond moves to Fox’s duopoly next spring) and Will & Grace’s second run gets knocked down to 3:30 a.m. An infomercial has replaced Home Improvement at 3:00 a.m., whose contract to WGN (local and superstation) expired last week (all other local station deals for the show expired three months ago.)

WFLD:

TMZ gets a late fringe slot at 11:35 p.m., replacing a second run of Malcolm in the Middle (Malcolm is running multiple times a day on FX starting this fall.) TMZ is also airing on sister station WPWR at 6:30 p.m.

Sony’s new Judge David Young court show landed the 1 and 1:30 afternoon slot, pushing Cristina’s Court to WPWR at 9 a.m.
