Re: You can't argue with a sick mind...

Somehow I can't get the YouTube videos to work on my browser, but I'm sure I know what this is. Kermit Schafer had it on one of his Blooper albums. The recording itself was a sort of gag made by whoever produced the ad for personal enjoyment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKpDZigvoVo I recall ano...

As much as people crap on Speed Racer, be thankful no American company saw a need to bring this one over 40 years ago!

Re: Alex Trebek has stage 4 pancreatic cancer

Terrible news. Mr. Trebek is a very talented man and has done a phenomenal job with Jeopardy. I am definitely pulling for a miraculous recovery for him! If he were to pass suddenly, I presume Jeopardy would air reruns until a new host could be found. Jeopardy definitely will NOT be going away!!! Je...

Add to this WADL 38 (RF 39) with its co-owned WFDF AM 910, and WVIZ Cleveland 25 (RF 26) with spoken-word programming for the visually impaired.
Nice they offer that.

Re: WMNT-CD repack, with SNAFU!

My scan didn't pick-up 48 WMNT at all, so they really need to invest in some technology that will A: Show Channel Guides for each sub channel, B: Show station ID not in the middle of a program and actually send the correct virtual channel information for OTA boxes, C: Have Closed Captioning to foll...

Re: Old cable lineups

What really torqued me off was that for the first 5 seasons of Saturday Night Live, WSPD/WTVG 13 did NOT carry the NBC show at 11:30pm at all, and the ONLY way to see anything were SNL specials on at 10pm. I think it was something to do with their stupid old 'Code of Conduct' slide (SNL too risqué?...

Re: Old cable lineups

Buckeye Toledo rarely showed NBC4 programming, but ran WSPD-TV NBC programming, once in a while Buckeye would remember to flip the switch so you could see the Detroit news on 4. This was before 13 switched to ABC as WTVG. For some reason they almost never pre-empted WXYZ, which was cool so I could ...

So far in Riverdale we see a lot of Cheryl Blossom and Kevin Keller who didn't exist the Archie Unverse during that time, (and In the case of Kevin Keller couldn't ex...

Re: Toledo falls for the "Then, there's this....." craze too

WTOL's not running the same promos that they were a year ago?? Earth-shattering news. You can thank the new set for at least some of that. Who would want to continue run a promo that features shots of their old set a year or more after they got rid of it? In another side note, WNWO has also withdra...
