New Sunday Night Line Up
The NEW OETA Sunday Night Lineup
10pm: As Time Goes By
10:30pm: Keeping Up Appearances
11pm: Doc Martin
(in addition to its regular Thursday at 9pm timeslot)
A bit about the new changes and why some of the previous series are no longer being shown:
We are no longer be able to air ARE YOU BEING SERVED due to a legal dispute with the BBC and heirs to the creator's estate. It's completely out of OETA's control and no longer being distributed to any stations in America. The broadcast rights for VICAR OF DIBLEY expired. OETA would have to purchase them again, and since they have aired for years and years, it was decided to give the series a rest.
Putting DOC MARTIN on Sunday night at 11pm after our current British comedies (which air after our British MASTERPIECE dramas) makes perfect sense. For those who can't watch DOC MARTIN on Thursday, they will have two timeslots.
