Mar 14, 2005  •  Post A Comment

Animal Planet said Monday it plans to rebrand its Sunday night as “Whoa! Sunday,” beginning March 27. The network will televise a series of specials on Sundays, including “Dragons: A Fantasy Made Real” and “Jane Goodall’s When Animals Talk.” Wednesdays will become “Wild Wednesday,” with “Corwin’s Quest” featuring Jeff Corwin (“The Jeff Corwin Experience” moves to fringe time periods) and “Buggin’ with Ruud.” The network is also launching a daytime block called “Simple Pleasures” in August. The block consists of two new shows, “Doga,” featuring dogs and their owners doing yoga, and “Backyard Habitat,” which shows people how to make homes for wildlife.
