Skein jumps from Fox to Frog, displaces 'Tucson'

The WB has shuffled its Thursday and Friday lineups in order to make room for migrating comedy “Grounded for Life.”

The Carsey-Werner-Mandabach laffer, which Fox declined to renew this fall, moves to the WB starting Friday, Feb. 28. Frog will air two new episodes that night at 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

“Grounded for Life” permanently airs Fridays at 9:30 p.m. after the Frog’s top-rated comedy “Reba.” “Greetings From Tucson,” which currently airs in that slot, will likely move down to 8:30 p.m. for the time being. WB may also air unseen episodes of “Do Over” in the time period.

In the process, “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” which has occupied the Friday 8:30 p.m. slot this season, will now move to Thursdays.

Hoping to reintroduce scripted comedy to the night, WB will air “Sabrina” on Thursdays at 8 p.m. beginning Feb. 27. The web will also dust off firstrun episodes of its “Family Affair” remake, which will air in the slot following “Sabrina.”

At 9 p.m., with “The Surreal Life” finishing up its run on Feb. 20, hidden-camera skein “JKX: The Jamie Kennedy Experiment” airs a special one-hour episode from New Orleans on Feb. 27.

Back-to-back segs of “JKX” will continue to air at 9 p.m. until the end of March, when the half-hour situational improv comedy “On the Spot” premieres.

“Grounded for Life” stars Donal Logue and Megyn Price as a set of young parents still struggling to grow up themselves.
