ABC12 runs commercials instead

Post by matt1 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 5:44 am

I was watching "Imaginary Mary" (starring Jenna Elfman) while around at 9:50, ABC12 ran 3 more 30 minute commercials. Then the show came back on without the rating at the top. :o

Well thankfully I was watching last night and neither WXYZ nor WTVG made the choice to run additional commercials at 9:50.

However, you ought to be lucky that ABC 12 ran a new The Middle at it's normal time while WXYZ dumped it to 1 AM for a local special...
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!

They did what?!

Unacceptable!

I'll notify the appropriate FCC commissioner, as well as state, county, and city law enforcement to take take of this issue.

Is it just me or Imaginary Mary sort of looks like a messed up version of the Pillsbury Doughboy?

I wonder if the commercial mix up has anything to do with WJRT outsourcing its Master Control?

Speaking of commercials on ABC 12, is Lee Steinberg a part-owner of the station? I swear, if I hear him ask somebody one more time "which hospital? I'll be right there" I might throw a heavy object at my tv.

He must run 30-50 spots per day, if not more.
