Last month I reported that I Love Lucy was taken off The Hallmark Channel lineup and was the first time that Lucy was not shown nationally. Although, some local channels may have aired the program, it was not available on the National level. Well it seems like it is back on Hallmark's schedule!
It seems that The Hallmark Channel had previously scheduled an I Love Lucy marathon to air on Sunday, October 4th from 11am-3am...now it looks even better for Lucy fans! It looks like they were planning that marathon for a comeback! Effective Monday, October 5th, the day after the marathon, I Love Lucy returns to the regular Hallmark Channel schedule and it isn't a late night time slot either! I Love Lucy will air weekdays from 5pm-8pm, which means six straight episodes, replacing M*A*S*H, which is now off the line-up, but it is still being shown by TV Land.
As for I Love Lucy, you people need to watch if you want it to STAY on the schedule, especially 5pm-8pm. They are giving it yet another chance...but Hallmark seems to have a short leash, so watch it this time or you'll have some splaining to do!
