Not Really A Good time To Do This

Post by sfpcc » Fri May 19, 2017 11:03 pm

According to the Comcast guide WDIV is bumping the season finale of Law And Order SVU for something called Local 4 Sports Special. Right now I can't tell if it's being moved to WADL of shown at a later date. I know this station does this somewhat often but it's the season finale! It's not some Saturday night rerun. Maybe something will change or it will show up on demand.

According to Zap2It WDIV is actually preempting the episode that precedes the finale-and it's also a new episode. That episode won't air on WADL either.
For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th) and one night in September 2017 (22nd), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!

There is finally relief. WDIV will show the entire two-hour season finale and the Sports Special will actually preempt an SVU repeat that precedes the finale instead. Source is from at least two program guides.

I'm sure Local 4 did this because they finally gave in and did something to please all those complainers.
