Step by Step

As we’ve mentioned, Step by Step is joining the Hub Network on October 7. The ‘90s sitcom will air weeknights from 7-8pm and encore later from 2-3am on Mondays-Thursdays.

With the addition, there are a few other regular schedule changes. First up, weekday mornings get a small switch – with Transformers Prime moving up half-an-hour to 7:30am and Batman: The Animated Series sliding down to 8am. However, on Fridays mornings, Kaijudo repeats will air at 7:30am instead of Prime.

Later on weekdays, Animaniacs is being displaced in its 7pm hour by Step by Step, so it will move up to 6-7pm, in effect bumping Tiny Toon Adventures back to 5-6pm. That will replace Transformers Rescue Bots and Super Hero Squad Show, but both will continue to air early weekday mornings.

Late Monday-Thursday nights will alter a little as well. Since Step by Step encores will air from 2-3am, the nightly block of shows from 2-4am will shift to 3-5am. That will replace Sliders at 4am. Then, the 5am hour will now be Family Ties and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, both replacing Hercules. Sliders and Hercules will continue to air late-Friday and Saturday nights.

Lastly, on Saturday afternoons, Sabrina Secrets of a Teenage Witch, the new CGI-animated series will air at noon. Kaijudo: Clash of the Duel Masters will relocate new episodes from Friday evenings to Saturday afternoon at 2pm.

To highlight a few events:

  • The Transformers Prime finale movie “Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising” will premiere Friday, October 4 at 8pm with an encore at 10:30pm. The 90-minute movie will also encore Saturday, Oct. 5 at 3pm.
  • The third season of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series will resume as a “new season” starting Saturday, October 12 at 7pm. Two new episodes will air that night, with single premieres continuing Saturdays at 7:30pm starting Oct. 19.
