'Married with Children' and 'The Steve Harvey Show' are coming back on getTV
Both 'Married with Children' and 'The Steve Harvey Show' will be joining getTV's fall weekday line-up, that boasts other titles like 'First Families of Funny' and 'Funny Side Up'.
Come fall and two of your favorite sitcoms from the 80s and the 90s will be making a comeback on television, all thanks to getTV. As part of their sitcom-special September-October line-up, the network is all set to bring back its long-running popular sitcoms 'Married With Children', and 'The Steve Harvey Show' - offering just ample reasons to stay glued to the TV.
For the uninitiated, 'Married With Children' had first aired back in April 1987, eventually becoming FOX’s longest-running live action (non-animated) comedy. The series ran for eleven seasons and is also regarded as the first sitcom to have aired during primetime on the fledgling FOX network. At the heart of the series, though, was the dysfunctional Bundy family starring Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate, David Faustino, David Garrison, Amanda Bearse and Ted McGinley.
Considered groundbreaking at the time, 'Married with Children' was often known for pushing the boundaries of what was considered tasteful and proper on television. The series milked humor from real and unbecoming aspects of American society and family life, something that was previously unseen on television.
“We’re tremendously excited to bring comedy fans one of the longest-running and most popular sitcoms in TV history, ‘Married with Children,’ a show that is just as funny today as when it first premiered more than 30 years ago," said Jeff Meier, SVP Programming and General Manager of getTV, dishing on the return of the popular sitcom. Beginning from September 17, however, the show will be joining the fall-lineup, airing back-to-back on weekdays at 9 am, 8 pm, and 1 am ET.
Joining this wave of revival is yet another 90s nostalgia reminder - 'The Steve Harvey Show'. Starring Emmy-winning comedian and actor Steve Harvey at the front and center of all action, as a former funk legend-turned-high school teacher, the series returns on October 1, airing Monday through Friday at 8 am and 11 pm ET.
Speaking about the return of the Harvey-led series on television, Meier added: “While most viewers may know Steve Harvey as the host of his enormously popular weekday morning syndicated radio show, ‘Family Feud,’ ‘Little Big Shots,’ and even ‘The Miss Universe Pageant,’ this new opportunity to catch his long running family sitcom ‘The Steve Harvey Show’ will give audiences the chance to rediscover his considerable talent as a comic actor."
