March sked makes way for laffers at UPN, Fox

'As If,' 'Random,' 'Richter,' 'Greg' set to bow

There’s something funny about the latest midseason sked changes at UPN and Fox.

On Thursday, the webs announced March schedule changes that will result in the addition of two new laffers to each net’s respective lineups. UPN’s “Roswell” and Fox comedies “Undeclared” and “Titus” will go on hiatus to make room for the spring tryouts.

UPN will bow Brit-inspired dramedy “As If” and buddy comedy “The Random Years” on Tuesday, March 5. The skeins will air at 9 and 9:30 p.m., respectively, bumping “Roswell” until May sweeps.

Over at Fox, the net finally confirmed what had long been suspected, slotting former Conan O’Brien sidekick and his out-there laffer “Andy Richter Controls the Universe” Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. and putting puppet-filled half-hour “Greg the Bunny” Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. “Andy” premieres March 19, while “Greg” hops onto the Fox sked March 27.
