Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

LOL...You're right. I was hoping they weren't that prudish but MeTV is too good for them.

Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

Wonder if WLMB channel 40 would be interested in picking up MeTV. Seems like a good fit for them, since they air similar shows to MeTV, when they're not airing religious programming. They only have one subchannel, "Radiant TV" last I checked, so perhaps MeTV could be on 40-3.

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: New Season 2019/2020

Will check out some of the new CBS comedies. One starring Billy Gardell, another starring Patricia Heaton. I think her's is called "Carol's Second Act." His doesn't have a name that is easy to remember. Bob Heart's … somebody I can't spell or pronounce, but Billy Gardell was funny on his last CBS sh...

Re: Comcast Removing Detroit and Lansing Channels

Hopefully that means their subscribers will at least see a slight reduction in their bills. Wondering what made them decide to make this change after all these years. Were any of these stations sometimes blocked, due to the FCC's "Network Non-Duplication and Syndicated Exclusivity" rules?

Re: New Daytime Talk Shows

Yeah, that was awkward. These announcers have to deal with that sort of thing every year, promoting the new network primetime shows, regardless of how they really feel about the shows or the people in them. Promoting a syndicated daytime talk show may be a new low.

For those interested, Kelly Clarkson's new show now has a station list online: https://www.kellyclarksonshow.com/exclusives/where-to-watch Looks like she'll be on almost everywhere in the U.S. I was surprised NBC is promoting it on their cable channels like NBCSN, even though it's syndicated to a lo...

Re: New Daytime Talk Shows

Chris Harrison did a good job as host of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" but now that it's cancelled, he'll have more time to hang out with all those bachelors and bachelorettes. As for court shows, I remember being hooked on them as a teenager in the 1980s. Shows like the original "People's Court" ...

Wow! Maybe this means Cumulus will hold on to at least some of their San Francisco stations. Hopefully there is another AAA or alternative rock station to fill the void left by KFOG flipping to KNBR's sports format.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Not sure what the infomercial was on WDIV last Thursday, though this week it's an "All 4 Pets" special and "Live In The D" "Out On The Town" from 8-9 pm tomorrow, (Thursday August 22.)

Re: New Daytime Talk Shows

Correction: about Tamron Hall's new show. Apparently her website has the wrong channel and show time for Detroit. After checking with a woman named Janelle in the program department of channel 7 and 20, Tamron's show will be on WMYD-TV 20 Detroit, weekdays at 11:00 am starting September 9.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

A couple preemptions of note this week. First, looks like WDIV Local 4 has paid programming from 8 to 9 pm tonight (Thursday August 15) preempting another rerun of NBC's "The Wall." Then on Saturday, WXYZ 7 will delay ABC's rerun of a live performance of "The Jeffersons" and "All In The Family" unti...

Re: CBSDetroit62

I always loved the smooth voice of Michelle DeSouza delivering the station id. "You're watching WGPR TV 62, Detroit." There was also a man who recorded station ids for 62 in the late 80s/early 90s, but I'm not sure who he was.

Re: CBSDetroit62

The call letter change made sense, because the WGPR calls supposedly originally stood for "Where God's Presence Radiates." While I don't think 62 was ever marketed as a "Christian" or religious station, their prime time schedule and much of their daytime schedule was filled with programs from variou...
