Barnaby Jones and Bat Masterson join the Flintstones in the MeTV 2019 fall lineup
The schedule changes begin on Labor Day.
Fall may be the season of pumpkin-spice everything, but on MeTV, we're feeling the flavors of ribs and milk. We all remember the credits to The Flintstones, when the family scampers to a drive-in, where a waitress stacks a big ol' slab of ribs on the side of their car. Well, get ready to sing along to "Meet the Flintstones," as the pioneering cartoon is coming to MeTV!
We have more changes on the way — and they're coming in two weeks.
Effective Labor Day, September 2, get your early mornings started with a tall glass of milk, as lactose-loving detective Barnaby Jones joins the schedule, weekdays at 4AM | 3C. The hit 1970s series marked a comeback for former Beverly Hillbillies star Buddy Ebsen. The father-daughter crime series also featured erstwhile Catwoman Lee Meriwether as Betty Jones.
Barnaby Jones is trailed by Broderick Crawford in Highway Patrol at 5AM | 4C.
On Saturdays, our weekend Westerns get off to an earlier start with the addition of Bat Masterson at 7AM | 6C. Gene Barry portrayed the real-life dandy, a gambler and lawman who roamed the West charming women and defending the unjustly accused. His primary weapon was his wit and cane rather than his gun.
Elsewhere on the new MeTV Fall 2019 lineup, The Jeffersons move on up to Sundays at 10PM | 9C. Plus, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original 1959–64 classic, Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone returns to weeknights at 12:30AM | 11:30C and double dose on Sundays at 12AM | 11C.
The fun begins on Labor Day!
