Press Release: Weigel Broadcasting Co. has announced the March 27, 2023 launch of CATCHY COMEDY, an over-the-air national broadcast television network that will invite viewers to ‘Catch All the Laughs’ with a library of classic sitcoms headlined by the beloved stars who set the bar. A focused, fresh and fun rebrand of Weigel’s current DECADES Network, Catchy Comedy will be available across the country on broadcast stations of FOX Television Stations, Weigel Broadcasting Co. and other affiliate partners, clearing 69.5% of U.S. television markets. As with DECADES, Catchy Comedy will also be available on the Philo and Frndly TV streaming platforms.

Catchy Comedy will focus exclusively on comedy, presenting some of TV’s greatest comedy series seven days a week. Weekdays in daytime will highlight female-driven series and the influential women of TV comedy, from Lucille Ball to Mary Tyler Moore to Carol Burnett and more. Legendary Norman Lear favorites take center stage weeknights with ‘Norman Lear’s Catchy Classics’ featuring Good Times, Sanford and Son and All In the Family airing Monday-Friday in prime time. Smart comedies anchor late night Monday-Friday in the ‘Smart and Catchy Sitcoms’ block presenting some of the best written and wittiest TV comedies including Night Court, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Cheers, Taxi, The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart. Saturday and Sunday ‘The Catchy Binge’ offers a chance for viewers to binge their favorite sitcoms and classic comedies with a marathon of a different series featured each weekend.

“Catchy Comedy is a celebration of the very best in classic television comedy and will showcase and celebrate a who’s who of funny women and TV legends,” said Neal Sabin, Vice-Chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co. “We are excited to bring an all-comedy approach with this exciting rebrand of DECADES evolving into Catchy Comedy. Weekdays we will showcase hilarious series with a strong appeal to women, or with female characters that redefined and expanded the role of women in television. Then in primetime we will feature groundbreaking comedy and characters from the legendary Norman Lear, and in late nights we will present some of the smartest and best written comedy series on television. Viewers really will be able to ‘catch all the laughs’ on Catchy Comedy.”
