Re: Giant TBA on tomorrow's NBC schedule

Not only that, there is an interesting difference at 10:00 PM tonight (Monday September 16) as WDIV's listings show "Dateline NBC" which usually airs at that time. However, taking a look at WNWO's schedule, they list the NBC Primetime Preview show from 10:00-11:00, which is interesting because that...

Re: CICO-32 in Windsor

In the Buffalo/Niagara region I have noticed alot more CDN ad's on Buffalo tv/radio, even the Buff PBS station dubs itself as Buffalo/Toronto since alot of canadians donate to that PBS station. Its always suprised me that the Det radio/tv didnt go after more revenue from this side of the river.I th...

Re: Old cable lineups

I find it interesting that Cartoon Network, WADL, and especially WWJ were dumped to the 90s. And still continued to have WWJ as the last channel in the lineup on the converted list. Thanks to a quirk on Zenith TV sets, those non-converter viewers who had Zenith TVs had WADL on cable channel 0, WWJ ...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

Surprisingly, there's a new update, disappointing at first but it gets better. Susan's reception of WJBK had disappeared again, and WDIV and WXYZ had begun messing up as well. Her son came over yesterday and decided to try aluminum foil "like we used to do in the old days." All three channels began ...

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

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...
