“MeTV was planning to introduce Full House to our schedule in February, pairing it with another timeless family, the Brady’s and their bunch,” said Neal Sabin, vice-chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co. “Now our plans are to introduce Full House this weekend as a tribute to the beloved Bob Saget, AKA ‘America’s Dad.’ Watching the series takes on new meaning for fans of the program, with viewers from all generations able to come together and celebrate Bob in his most memorable TV series.”
Upcoming programming also includes a Valentine’s Day-themed Full House marathon of 12 heartfelt episodes from 12pm-6pm ET/PT on Sunday, February 13.
Created by Jeff Franklin, Full House aired on ABC from 1987-1995 for eight seasons and 192 episodes, introducing viewers to one of America’s most beloved families, the Tanners. Needing help after his wife’s sudden death, talk show host Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) calls his Elvis obsessed brother-in-law, Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and his childhood best friend, stand-up comedian Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) to help him take care of his three daughters, D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). One of the most popular sitcoms of the eighties and nineties, the series was consistently in the Nielsen Top 30 for most of its run and gained even more popularity in syndicated reruns.
Actor and comedian Bob Saget was beloved for his role as Danny Tanner on the original series and in the recent reboot Fuller House, his stint hosting America’s Funniest Home Videos, from 1989 to 1997, and as narrator on How I Met Your Mother. He passed away at the age of 65 on January 9.
