Comedy Gold viewers are being given the golden ticket to check out the channel’s refreshed new look just in time for a nationwide freeview. Sleek and stylish, Comedy Gold’s new look is now aligned with that of sister station The Comedy Network, which was re-branded in November 2011. Bell Media is offering a free preview of Comedy Gold beginning today and running until Tuesday, July 31, nationally on Bell TV and regionally via other distributors. This retro-fitted look will not only be reflected on-air, but also carried over into the station’s online presence atComedyGold.ca. Similar to The Comedy Network, the redesigned logo can be seen glittering across all of Comedy Gold’s assets, including on-air promos.
As part of the freeview, timeless favourite I LOVE LUCY is joining Comedy Gold’s roster of classic sitcoms Tuesday, July 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Other Comedy Gold cozy classics include FULL HOUSE, WHO’S THE BOSS?, THE BOB NEWHART SHOW, NEWHART, NIGHT COURT, and ONE DAY AT A TIME. Weekends are especially tribute-worthy offering a trip down memory lane with enchanting old-time marathons.
Below is a sample of the Comedy Gold marathons taking place throughout the freeview (programming subject to change, visit ComedyGold.ca to confirm local broadcast times).
