These ever popular series will join a line-up which already boasts Central Park West, Brooklyn Bridge, The Bronx Zoo, The Associates, Car 54, Where Are You? and Serpico.

Metro will add these new New York-centric classics with the unveiling of its new schedule, during the week of July 24. TVNY‘s new lineup will include:

Welcome Back, Kotter – Premieres July 24 @ 7 PM
Metro is welcoming back the hilarious 70’s comedy about a young, idealistic and very funny Brooklyn teacher and his impossible class of lovable under-achievers, “The Sweathogs.” Comedian Gabe Kaplan portrays Gabe Kotter, a man who lands back in high school, who uses unorthodox methods to educate his exasperating students that include Ron Pallilo (the honk-voiced Horshack), Lawrence Hilton Jacobs (the smooth Washington), Robert Heyges (the Groucho-obsessed Epstein) and John Travolta (the sexy, but slightly dim, Vinny Barbarino). Welcome Back, Kotter will air Mondays – Fridays @ 7 PM (repeat 11 PM).

The Days & Nights Of Molly Dodd – Premieres July 24 @ 8 PM
Move over Ally McBeal
