Re: Local 4 expands to 1 PM

Perhaps nobody wanted to buy infomercial time in the 12:30-1:00 PM slot. At my old worksite a few years ago, many of us would watch Jeopardy! in the 12:30 slot. Sometime later, WDIV would sell a half-hour infomercial slot instead of Jeopardy! replays, knowing that viewers would be lazy enough to ju...

What's not to like about that Radio Guide? Ernie and Paul on it and it lists all the Stereo AM stations as well (about a dozen, including the Tiger games on WJR)
Agree!

Re: Media Coverage of Local Sports Protests

Nobody can walk away from the NFL no matter how hard we try especially if we have fantasy leagues with friends and coworkers. I’ve been running a fantasy league for over 10 years. We took a vote yesterday, I was shocked. 8-4 in favor of skipping this season. A couple people didn’t want to play due ...

And with no college football, it's not likely to get better any time soon.
Well, no Big 10 football. Central Arkansas is already 1-0 this season with its big victory over Austin Peay yesterday.

Re: "30 Rock: A one-time special"

I'm a fan of 30 Rock and have the set on DVD. I'm not understanding why NBC affiliates are refusing to air the special. The big owners thought since this special was to promote Peacock, it was going to cut into their profits. As the entire "commercial free" hour was designed to promote Peacock, the...

Re: Palace explodes

The airport is where it's at and the only competition is Toledo and Flint. The Palace was easily accessible to maybe 10% of the metro Detroit population and had the newer LCA, centrally located, competing for shows, events and paying spectators. Sadly looks like LCA will be shuttered for a while. T...

Re: The Palace

Getting out of The Palace wasn't bad at all if you knew (a) where to park in the parking lot (northeast portion was best; southwest portion was worst) and (b) were familiar with the secondary roads in the area. Multiple times, I exited via Harmon Rd., and once I reached Giddings Rd to make a left t...

The Palace

Random thought on a random night: Anyone else miss the Palace? Who knows when live, attended sports or concerts might actually return, but when I find myself reminiscing back to live events I have attended in the past, I often think back to trips I made to the Palace. I just really enjoyed that buil...

Re: Best/worst announcers of all time.

I think the worst color commentator of all time was Dennis Miller when he was on MNF from 2000-2001. He was pretty much panned for his unfunny jokes and was let go after one season. Two seasons, I believe. Miller, and Dan Fouts, were Al Michaels’ sidekicks in the booth for both 2000 and 2001, befor...

Re: Will history repeat itself? (Network switch)

Gee, do you think anything is possible? Considering you’ve said it 4 times in this thread, I’m going to go out in a limb and say that you do. Okay, on that basis, the DuMont Television Network wills itself back into existence 63 years after going bankrupt. They purchase channel 4, and force NBC onto...

Re: Arrow And Good Place Series Finales

I watched the first season of The Good Place, thought it was pretty stupid. Now it seems like every critic and everyone on social media loves the show. Not sure if it got better, or maybe it was just never my cup of tea.
