'Mother' Will Meet Nick At Nite's Primetime Lineup

Nick at Nite will revamp its lineup with the addition of three off-network sitcoms: Twentieth Television's How I Met Your Mother, Warner Bros.’ The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and CBS Television Distribution’s Everybody Loves Raymond.

The network will begin airing the complete 208-installment library of How I Met Your Mother early this fall. The show, starring Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders, just completed its nine-year CBS run on March 31.

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the 1990-96 NBC sitcom that made Will Smith a household name among TV viewers, will return to Nick at Nite in early October. The 148-episode archive previously aired on the network from August 2004 to September 2009.

Set to debut on Nick at Nite early next year, Everybody Loves Raymond aired on CBS for nine seasons, consistently ranking among TV’s top-10 programs, beginning with the 2000-2001 season. The show, which has played well in syndication over the years, stars Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Peter Boyle and Brad Garrett. The network will have access to all 212 Raymond episodes.

Deal terms were not disclosed.
