Fox retitles 'Family Time' to 'Renovate My Family', moves premiere to September 1
By Reality TV World staff, 08/31/2004
After having originally announced that its new "ultimate family makeover" series, previously assigned the working title of Family Time, would premiere Tuesday, September 7 at 9PM ET/PT and then air twice weekly, Fox has decided to premiere the series (now titled Renovate My Family) on Wednesday, September 1 at 8PM ET/PT and have subsequent episodes of the series air Mondays at 9PM ET/PT.
As part of a significant reshuffling of Fox's September reality programming lineup, Renovate My Family will still debut with a special two-hour episode featuring the Biggins family shown in Trading Spouses July premiere, however its previously planned dual Tuesdays and Thursdays broadcast schedule has been cancelled the series will now air just once-weekly in the Mondays at 9PM ET/PT time period previously planned for The Complex.
The changes will take effect immediately, with the second episode of The Complex (which premiered last night in the Monday time period with a special two-hour debut) airing Friday, September 3 at 8PM ET/PT and the second episode Renovate My Family airing Monday, September 6 at 9PM ET/PT.
Apparently deciding against attempting to program Renovate Your Family versus the upcoming second season of NBC's The Apprentice (premiering September 9), Fox will now fill the Thursday 9PM time period with Totally Outrageous Behavior and World's Craziest Videos episodes for September.
Unaffected by the shakeup is the network's Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy reality series, which will remain airing in its Tuesdays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot.
