Fox 2 Primetime Thursday

Good ol Detroit Lions football!

Fox prime time programming is preempted for the Lions lol.

Hope the Lions won’t suck, again. If they do, Matt ‘Fred Flintstone’ Patricia should be on the hot seat.

Btw, MasterChef and Spin the Wheel are both shown tonight, beginning at 11:30pm :wink:

Re: Only a matter of time for Fox

The NHL draws abysmal numbers for the NBC network. Most of the country does not care about it. Listen to any national sports talk radio show, and you will notice how little they talk about hockey, even during the Stanley Cup Finals. Not surprising at all. NHL seems to be an afterthought in markers ...

WKBD (localized Fox slogans):

It’s on Fox 50 (circa 1990-92)

As a CW station:

Free to be (2015)

WWJ-TV 62:

We are CBS Detroit (circa 2005)

Only a matter of time for Fox

Since Fox is heavily invested in sports, it’s only a matter of time before they make a bid for the NBA. They have the NFL, MLB, and is now more invested in college football and college basketball. They also have the rights to the World Cup as well as PGA and some NASCAR. I’m not sure when ESPN/ABC’s...

Re: Past WJBK network slogans

Not familiar with WJBK, but at the risk of taking over a thread too early, can we add other stations also? Yes, go ahead WXYZ (ABC localized slogans): Still the One We’re the One, on Channel 7 You and Me and Channel 7 Now is the Time, Channel 7 is the Place Come on Along with Channel 7 Local slogan...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Looks like WDIV will preempt/move NBC programming two nights this week. Tonight from 8:00 to 11:00 for the Ford Fireworks, then a replay of the fireworks Friday night from 8:00 to 10:00. I assume NBC's shows such as "American Ninja Warrior" will be moved to WDIV 4.3 METV, though their Titan TV list...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

I decided to create this thread to discuss preemptions of network programming by individual stations past and present. Any reason for a particular preemption is allowed here. Remember that many years ago preemptions of network programs were common in nearly every market since networks were only all...

Re: What if WJBK aired Fox Kids

I always felt it was a big mistake for stations like WJBK and WJW to not air Fox kids. Being on bigger market stations would’ve helped it to last longer. Just my thoughts on it. Power Rangers should’ve aired on WJBK.

Fox daytime programming

I find it crazy that Fox has no weekday programming. It’s been in existence for almost 33 years, and it’s now considered to be on the same level as CBS, ABC, and NBC. If Fox is being conservative, they could have a talk show or a news program on just the O&Os, including WJBK. I think it’s happened b...

WDIV primetime Friday

In place of NBC programming, Loco 4 is airing paid programming, from 8-9pm.

Loco 4 must have bills to pay, to preempt network programming like that.

Typical!!!
