The CW is moving its two-hour Sunday comedy block to Monday, emulating the long-running sitcom schedule programmed by one of its predecessors, UPN.

Starting Monday, Oct. 9, “Everybody Hates Chris,” which ran on Thursdays last season on UPN, will start the network’s prime-time schedule at 8 p.m. (ET), followed by former Monday time-period holders “All of Us” at 8:30 p.m. and “Girlfriends” at 9 p.m. The CW’s sole fall debuting comedy “The Game” finishes out the night at 9:30 p.m.

The CW will rebroadcast each comedy’s season premiere on Oct. 9, with original episodes returning on Oct. 16.

Starting Oct. 15, The CW’s new Sunday lineup will begin with an encore of the previous Wednesday’s “America’s Next Top Model” at 7 p.m. followed by original episodes of former Monday time-slot holders “7th Heaven” at 8 p.m. and freshman drama “Runaway” at 9 p.m.
