Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Tonight, WXYZ is pushing reruns of The Conners and American Housewife to 1:07 AM-2:07 AM, and dumping The List, to air a Rocket Mortgage Classic pregame show.

Re: OTA channels MIA

in the analog era, 2, 4, 7 all covered out to Lansing, Flint, Toledo, and even London (with severe transitory interference for 2 as far away as London, Ontario). 20 and 50 covered out to Ann Arbor, Port Huron, Toledo and the inner suburbs... 62 covered only the inner suburbs and downriver communiti...

As of yesterday, the station is gone from the lineup.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Preemption alert on WDIV: A special about the Detroit Grand Prix will air tomorrow night in the 7 PM hour, bumping Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! to the 8 PM hour, in turn pushing the first hour of Blindspot's two-hour season finale to Me TV 4.3.

Re: CKCO-3 Channel 42 Off the Air?

Should CKCO-3 flip to UHF 30 for its digital signal with virtual channel 42.1? From an ethical perspective, CKCO-3 should convert to DTV, but they won't. They're owned by Bell Media, the owner of Canada's cable and satellite TV providers. With OTA television out of the way (except in areas with US ...

Re: The Ax Falls: 2019 Network TV Cancellations

That’s probably half the network shows which is proving something here that over-the- air networks are dying ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW, So the question is where will these 5 networks be in 10 years, My bet is that they will be gone from broadcast television and these are the guys that want ATSC...

Re: CKCO-3 Channel 42 Off the Air?

I think bell and shaw dream of turning CTV and Global into general-entertainment cable channels (and will eventuallhy pressure the CRTC to allow for such a category), so they can shutter their transmitters and go cable-only. Reminds me of exactly what CBS and Fox threatened to do if they lost the A...

Re: Newest Jeopardy! Uberchampion

I’ve read a completely unsubstantiated internet rumor that claims he will lose after amassing 32 victories and $2.4M, coming up just shy of Ken Jennings $2.5M. (Although way ahead of Ken in average dollar value per victory, and way behind Ken in total victories of 72.) I probably don't think that'l...
