CBS plays ‘League,’ ‘Dudley’

CBS will schedule the half-hours “A League of Their Own” and “Brooklyn Bridge” in the 9 o’clock hour Saturdays starting April 10, creating what the network is billing as a two-hour family entertainment block along with “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.”

The network has also set the new Twentieth TV sitcom “Dudley” to move into the Friday lineup at 8:30 p.m. on April 16, replacing Universal’s “Major Dad,” which will complete its season run of episodes the prior week.

This Friday, another new show, the Shelley Long vehicle “Good Advice,” will join the schedule at 9:30 following “Designing Women.”

“League” comes from TriStar TV and the film’s director, Penny Marshall. “Brooklyn Bridge,” produced by Gary David Goldberg’s Ubu Prods. in association with Paramount Network TV, is making what many view as a last-gasp attempt to find an audience to go along with its critical acclaim.
