Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

A rerun of The Wall has been preempted by WDIV for infomercials. It's not being bumped anywhere either.

Re: DECADES IS COMING BACK THIS FALL!!!

With Decades coming to WJBK 2.5 than who needs WHNE LP. Anyone who wants to watch the offerings on Retro network, or the quirky crapshoot of never-identified flicks that is the "Classic Drive-in" movie channel, or, something that's not Decades.

Re: Old county weather maps

I keep losing track of what market Hancock County (Findlay) is in- Toledo or Lima. Hancock is in the Toledo DMA as far back as I know. The next county to the west, Putnam, however, has gone back and forth between Toledo and Lima, but I believe it has currently settled in the Lima DMA for a couple y...

Old county weather maps

Another thread on this forum made mention that back in the 1990's, the Detroit stations displayed Hillsdale, Lenawee, Jackson, Shiawassee and Genesee Counties in addition to their DMA (these stations still show Lenawee County to this date). And I once read another thread, now long deleted, that made...

Re: ABC revives two more game shows: Press Your Luck and Card Sharks

As for my opinion, I think the PYL reboot is the better of the two. The bonus game is all right at best.

Re: Why is Sanilac part of the Detroit DMA?

Genesee and Lenawee have been included in Detroit station’s maps because the stations were available OTA (probably still are with a decent antenna), as well as on cable. Lenawee in all reality is no man’s land. The county is ignored by both Toledo (its actual DMA) and Detroit stations. But, do stat...

Wyandotte Cable retires scrolling TV listings

Apparently, until today, Wyandotte Cable was the last cable provider in the Detroit market to still carry TV listings carried over from the Prevue/TV Guide days. An employee of Wyandotte Cable just posted this announcement on the Wyandotte residents Facebook group: CHANNEL 19 GUIDE SERVICE TERMINATE...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

I have a finishing update: Susan fooled around with her antenna today and got WJBK to come in again! She doesn't know if it will last or not. She announced this two hours ago.

WDIV had a couple NBC localized slogans in the late 1980s.
Here's two I can think of right now:

Come Home To The Best, Only On Channel 4! (1988-1990)
WDIV, The Place To Be! (1990-1991)

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

If this help matters at all, Susan's house only has one floor, though the immediate neighborhood has some two-floor houses. As of today, she is still not getting WJBK.

WXYZ at 50% power

Due to a transmitter issue earlier today, WXYZ was running at 50% power a half hour ago, possibly still is right now. They're working to get it fixed ASAP. Has this had an effect on your reception of WXYZ?

Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

I am assisting Susan David-Thorne from the Wyandotte residents group on Facebook. She has a flat antenna for TV reception. She can usually get WJBK Fox 2, but once in a while, especially when it gets windy, she has problems with it. But for the last couple weeks, she has had major problems getting i...
