Even More Me

By Rob Christopher in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 19, 2008 4:09PM

2008_2metootv.JPG MeTV has been a not-so-guilty pleasure of ours for awhile. Its non-stop parade of vintage TV is a balm to our soul. In fact, we have a Sunday evening routine of sorts. If we're at home, at ten minutes before 5 we fix ourselves a dry martini, with two bleu-cheese stuffed olives, and settle down for back-to-back episodes of Night Gallery (occasionally continuing on for some Twilight Zone if we're feeling especially couch potatoey).

So we're pretty darn excited about MeTV's new "little sister" channel, Me-Too. As WWME-TV's Neal Sabin explained to us last year the station has over a hundred series in their library, far too many for just one channel. Me-Too, which goes on the air March 1, will show scads of programs that have been hard to see over the years. The "Noir at Night" block on Sunday nights features Route 66, Naked City, 77 Sunset Strip and Boris Karloff’s Thriller (bet you didn't know he hosted an anthology show in the early 60's, did you?) Other "new" offerings include The Partridge Family, Square Pegs, The Monkees, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Eclectic! Zowie!

Me-Too will be broadcast in HD over the air on channel 26.3 (26.1 is "the U" and 26.2 is MeTV). It'll also be available on Comcast, RCN and WOW.
