WWMT's National Exposure

I'm surprised no one on here has mentioned that channel 3 has been used as the local station on the CBS TV series Battle Creek.

Well written scripts/plots. Sorry it is being canceled!

Yeah, that's shitty. I was just getting into it and enjoying it. 10pm Sunday was a bad spot for it... too many other big shows to compete with

Oddly enough, it may have been too smart a program for that time slot. If you look at the CBS lineup on Sundays, everything is arguably pretty high bandwidth material. Not much chewing gum for four hours takes a toll on the typical viewer.

The other thing is I suspect each of those episodes were north of $1M a pop to produce. Granted it's a pretty expensive neighborhood. Except for 60 Minutes, the network run rate is right up there on Sundays. NFL ($$$$$$), Madam Secretary (probably pushing close to $1M a show), and The Good Wife (I suspect somewhere between $1.5-$2M), so you better be pulling some really good numbers to pay the rent.

Too bad, it was a good effort.
