Returning for its fourth season is The Charlie Manuel Show, which features the Skipper, along with Phillies broadcaster Tom McCarthy, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at Phillies Baseball and answers viewer submitted questions. The Charlie Manuel Show premieres Saturday April 7th at 10:30pm following PHL17 News at Ten and will air each Saturday night at 10:30pm and Sunday prior to W.B. Mason Behind the Pinstripes beginning April 8th.
