The new Disney Junior Channel will begin broadcasting 24/7 on Friday March 23 (replacing SoapNet in many markets). Below is the initial schedule. Sadly, while most of the original Playhouse Disney shows are returning, "Bear in the Big Blue House" does not yet have a regular programing slot. We can only hope that the beloved "Bear in the Big Blue House" returns soon. The show hasn't been on US TV in more than five years. ("Bear in the Big Blue House" currently airs regulaly on the Disney Junior Channel in Canada, so hopefully we'll see it added to the US channel in the future.) Request "Bear in the Big Blue House" on the official Disney Junior Channel Facebook page. Let us know your thoughts on the schedule. Also check out the official Disney Junior Channel web site to see if the station is available in your area.
