Re: Detroit OTA schedule for 7/1/1995

]WADL (Independent 38 Mount Clemens) 6 AM: America's Clown 6:30: Sonshinny Day Does anyone out there know what exactly was America's Clown? It sound like a clown who was big in the 70's or 80's who has just stayed around too long, (maybe a little like Krusty.) Probably, from all of what I know, jus...

Re: TV Guide

They discontinued the regional editions in 2005, in favor of the national listings. I gave up on TVG in 2004 when they began to mess with the listings format. And I have yet to even handle a TVG since its 2005 revamp. The last couple of times that I bought a TV magazine of any kind was in 2011 (whe...

Detroit OTA schedule for 7/1/1995

Source: Detroit Free Press, July 1, 1995 (the pages I needed happened to be free to view on newspapers.com because someone made clippings of the schedules on those pages) This is in the midst of a weird hybrid moment in Detroit TV history - WJBK, WXON, WKBD and WGPR were each getting used to their r...

Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

Another pre-crash thread recreation. As in the old thread, list the most distant AM, FM and TV signal you've ever tuned in. From my current memory, all from my current house in Wyandotte using respective indoor receivers for each medium: AM: probably one of the east coast clear-channel stations. FM:...

Re: 2018-2019 Pistons

Solid job in their latest victory against a weak Suns. Our #6 seed lead has gotten better and thanks to a Lakers loss, they have been eliminated from playoff contention so we shall not need to worry about them.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Yeah, I'm sure it upset some people. Really hoping the FCC does away with these network non-duplication/syndicated exclusivity rules, soon! I'm hoping they do too, even though they've been saying they're doing away with those rules since like...2015?, and even if the Cable Reform Act of 1996 still ...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Yes it was. The cable channel which usually shows WDIV, showed two infomercials that were obviously not WDIV's. No Michigan lottery results were shown on this channel, either. That alone ought to piss off a lot of fans of the two shows in Buckeye's service area. I couldn't check if Syndex was impos...

What these commenters should do is get real. Has 106.7 deleted any of those comments yet?

Doubt it, guess we'll find out tonight. Fortunately, I found a way around it, using Hulu.
Was Syndex imposed on WDIV on Buckeye last night in the 7 PM hour?

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Wondering if any of those stations will move Wheel and Jeopardy to a subchannel. Can't watch them on WDIV in the Toledo area because WTOL has asserted Synd-Ex rights, so Buckeye Broadband blocks WDIV in Toledo during those shows. Checking Zap2It quick, WTOL so far isn't appearing to air tomorrow's/...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

E.W. Scripps to acquire WXMI, the Fox affiliate in Grand Rapids as part of Nexstar divestiture . I somewhat knew this would happen, they can be able to finally form an I-96 cluster along with some sort of Michigan state news service, as it'll be joining their WXYZ/WMYD duopoly in Detroit and WSYM i...

I'm already growing to like this new incarnation. I certainly, however, didn't hear any songs from Irish rock groups when I listened yesterday.
