WB makes room for ‘Life’ laffer

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.
