There was a time when Friday nights meant can’t-miss programming on ABC. The lineup featured series such as ‘Full House, ‘Boy Meets World, ‘Sabrina The Teenage Witch’ and ‘Family Matters’ just to name a few. Now the network has announced the return of the programming block that made saying “TGIF” so cool back in the day.
The new lineup will feature among its list of shows ‘Fresh of the Boat’ and ‘Speechless’ and ABC is honoring the TGIF stars of the past as Ben Savage from ‘Boy Meets World’ is set to guest star on ‘Speechless while ‘Family Matters’ star Jaleel White will appear on ‘Fresh Off The Boat’.
Fans of the original TGIF should know that unlike the previous version that you grew up with this new incarnation will only last an hour. However, it is clear that ABC is at least giving a nod to those viewers who are longing for some throwback. Obviously, they need to air current series so we can’t complain.
