Monday, July 17, 2 a.m. - 6 a.m., ET/PT

 

Will air in its regular timeslot of 4 a.m. ET/PT Join Nick at Nite as it adds this comedy showcasing the hilarious antics at WNYX -- a whimsical #2 all news radio station in New York City -- to its lineup. Dave Nelson (Dave Foley) has just been brought in from Wisconsin as the news director by the station's owner, Jimmy James (Stephen Root). A bit overwhelmed by his new job, Dave must also deal with his new co-workers who are rather eccentric and witty. The staff includes: on air-anchors Bill (Phil Hartman) and Catherine (Khandi Alexander) who are constantly sniping at each other, Matthew (Andy Dick) an inept reporter, Beth (Vicky Lewis), a crazy secretary and Joe (Joe Rogan), the maintenance man. Rounding off the staff is Lisa (Maura Tierney), a smart and ambitious writer who actually should have gotten Dave's job. The two end up beginning an on-gain off-again romance that becomes the hot topic of conversation among their friends and colleagues. The untimely death of Phil Hartman led the show to cast Jon Lovitz in 1998 as Max Lewis, a new on-air personality.

 

 

 

 

A Different World

 

Wednesday, July 19, 2006, 10 p.m.- 2a.m. ET/PT

 

Will air in its regular timeslot of 10 p.m., every Saturday and Sunday Nick at Nite welcomes this ensemble comedy to the network beginning Wednesday, July 19 with a marathon from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. ET/PT. Set at the fictitious, historically black Hillman College, it centered around Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet), one of the four daughters on The Cosby Show. Denise is constantly trying to adjust to the changes of living away from home on her own as well as deal with her roommates Jaleesa (Dawnn Lewis), a young divorcee and Maggie (Marisa Tomei), a free-spirited and nave girl who also happens to be one of the only white students on campus. Other characters in the series include Whitley Gilbert (Jasmine Guy), a rich Southern belle; Dwayne Wayne (Kadeem Hardison), a nerdy but fast-talking New Yorker, his best friend Ron Johnson (Darryl Bell) and Walter Oakes (Sinbad), who was the dorm director. There were various changes after the first season when Lisa Bonet left the series. Several new characters were added, such as: Kim Reese (Charnele Brown), a pre- med student; Mr. Gaines (Lou Myers), the cafeteria cook; Col. Taylor (Glynn Turman), the campus ROTC commander; Freddie Brooks (Cree Summer), an environmental activist and Lena James (Jada Pinkett), a feisty freshman from Baltimore. The series also gave more prominence to the romantic relationship of Dwayne and Whitley, who became the show's main stars and who eventually married.

Awesome news to have it back on the air... now just waiting for Batman and Get Smart, lol.

 

One of the most underrated shows in America......I'm stoked personally.

 

agree 100%

 

time slot sucks though, good for TiVo though... although I do have all the DVDs, so I guess this really isn't that big of a deal for me, lol... I'm still happy about it though.

I have the DVD's, but it is good that more people will be exposed Newsradio. I rank it as easily one of my top ten favorite TV shows of all time. For those who were either too young or just didn't watch when it was on the air, make sure to catch it on Nick at Nite. Great cast, great writing....and Phil Hartman was a comic genius.
