Me TV teases its fall schedule but doesn’t mention U.N.C.L.E.

"What's happening with Me TV, Mr. Solo?"

“What’s happening with Me TV, Mr. Solo?”


So, Memorable Entertainment Television, popularly known as Me TV, has started to tease its fall schedule. But there’s no mention of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Me TV’s website has video four short promos for series to be shown in the fall, including Mission: Impossible.

As recently as Sunday, July 20, its Facebook page had a 10-second promo for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But, as of Wednesday, July 23, that same FACEBOOK PAGE has no mention of U.N.C.L.E. Meanwhile, Me TV telecast its short M:I promo during its July 23 telecast of The Rockford Files.

Your guess is as good as this blog’s as to what’s going on. The Me TV U.N.C.L.E. promo wasn’t a mirage because various Facebook users were sharing it on their accounts. Meanwhile a two-hour “spy bloc” on Me TV of U.N.C.L.E. and M:I would makes sense. A few years ago, Me TV had a two-hour “war series bloc” of Combat! and Twelve O’Clock High in its overnight offerings.

If Me TV has changed its mind, perhaps it’s yet another example of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. curse.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is coming to Memorable Entertainment Television, or Me TV, according to a promo the U.S. channel ran ON ITS FACEBOOK PAGE.

The promo only runs 10 seconds, utilizing the second-season version of Jerry Goldsmith’s theme music. There were no further details in the promo, such as date or how frequently U.N.C.L.E. will be telecast. The programming schedule on ME TV’S WEBSITE only goes into early August. The channel, which specializes in televising 1960s and 1970s shows, typically begins a fall schedule during the U.S. Labor Day holiday.

If Me TV begins U.N.C.L.E. in Sepember, that’d be in time for the 50th anniversary of the series starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. The show ran from September 1964 until January 1968.
