  1. What's the deal with NBC's "Clear the Shelters" special? It looks like all the O&O's are carrying it but only a few non-O&O affiliates are. WNBC is airing it on its main station and the Cozi TV subchannel. Access Hollywood got pre-empted two days in a row as a result (yesterday, Brooklyn Nine-Nine moved an hour early due to the Giants game which pre-empted the primetine lineup). KNSD is airing it Saturday at 6:30. WBRE is one of the few non-O&O's that is airing it tonight, and is pairing it with a second special, pre-empting both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! tonight.
  2. Is COPS completely gone now? I know KUBE was still airing it last season.
  3. Starting tonight, WKRN in Nashville temporarily moves Wheel of Fortune to 12:06 AM Central on Tuesday nights due to The Mike Vrabel Show. This results in Extra and the Dr. Phil encore sliding back half an hour, and Right This Minute at 1:33 AM is skipped over to the Kelly & Ryan encore at 2:00.
  4. To make matters worse, the MNF game went into overtime, ABC's feed did not sign off until just after midnight Eastern/9:00 Pacific. I found at least two affiliates that didn't air Wheel at all because of them slotting it too close to the game. KOMO 4 in Seattle aired Wheel and J!, but both about 35 minutes later than the times listed. Despite the Richards stuff, J! is still getting preferential treatment over Wheel. KXTV 10 in Sacramento was supposed to show J! at 9:00 but they slid it back about 5 minutes to air in its entirety, then JIP'd Wheel in the middle of Round 1 after J! f
  5. Bet CBS Media Ventures is thrilled to know that the Wheel and Jeopardy! season premieres are impacted by a national Monday Night Football game on the West Coast ABC affiliates... All airings have to be moved to primetime slots between the game and 10/11 PM newscasts, and then of course there's the potential issue of the game overrunning and having to JIP one of the shows. Since ABC brought back national MNF last year, their broadcast goes until 11:15 ET/8:15 PT, which means some affiliates are forced to schedule a half-hour syndie that will get JIP'd halfway through at best.

  6. Good Doctor wasn't cleared anywhere. The plans to distribute it must have fallen through.
  7. They could have easily simply aired S37 E1-52 over the course of the year for J! Weekend since Alex hosted 75 episodes last season.
  8. For the first known time, Daytime Jeopardy! is going to feature episodes from the current season instead of only the previous one. The first two weeks will be Mayim Bialik's two weeks as host from last season, then it jumps ahead to her episodes from this coming season, meaning Daytime Jeopardy! will only be one week behind first-run Jeopardy! instead of a year behind. If this keeps up, I could see affiliates viewing this as pointless and dropping it, especially the ones that double-run J!. People might get confused when Mayim is hosting both episodes, especially if the current champion is on
  9. Starting 9/13, WLNY's airings of Judge Judy will uniquely be the C and D runs, rather than repeats of the A and B runs that air earlier in the day on WCBS, meaning NYC will now get four unique episodes per weekday instead of two. For the "Judy Library" encores, the A and B runs will start with Season 21 (2016-17) in order (A: 2101, B: 2102, etc.), and the C and D runs will do the same with Season 18 (2013-14). How many weekend runs does Judy have? Two or four? WCBS/WLNY has three total airings on weekends, but the first two (5a on WCBS, 10:30p on WLNY) are the same epis
  10. What happened with The Good Doctor? I just put in zip codes for nearly all 210 DMA's on Zap2It. and zero markets have cleared it; the listing page was always blank. Did Sony decide not to roll it out after all?
  11. The CW+ never updated its online schedule. Here is the current lineup according to WNNE in Burlington, VT. New shows: Highway Thru Hell, Divorce Court, The Liquidator, Moviefone TV (debut), MacGyver Gone shows: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Jerry Springer, Seinfeld, SSN Sports, Nightwatch Increased runs: American Ninja Warrior (now airing weekdays in addition to 3 weekend runs) Reduced runs: Judge Jerry (4 to 3 weekday), To the Rescue (2 to 1 weekend), Made in Hollywood (2 to 1 weekend) WEEKDAYS (CHANGES IN BOLD) 6:00 AM - Highway Thru Hell (former
  12. Since College Football on ABC started this weekend, weekend syndies, especially access ones, temporarily leave or move to other slots. On WABC, Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune Weekend are airing Sundays at 4:30 and 5:00 AM. In some years, they would air early Saturday mornings instead of Sundays. My friend won the WOF episode that is repeating on 9/11-12 and he never even got to see the whole thing the first time because WABC scheduled it after the final rounds of the NFL Draft and it got JIP'd due to overrun; now he and his family will have to get up at 5:00 AM to see the rest of i
  13. First 48 is continuing on WLNY with its same "delay all five episodes to weekends" scheduling: Saturdays 4p, Sundays 2a, 4p, Mondays 1a, 2a. Couples is reduced to one run on WPIX starting 9/13, but it will continue. Protection Court is ending on WLNY Friday 9/10. It is being replaced with Relative Justice. Paternity Court is still running on WLNY, but will be reduced from three runs to just one. Previously, it aired weekdays at 4:30a, 5:30a, and 1p. This changes to just one airing at 5:30a starting 9/13.
  14. WPVI ran coverage all from the 6:00 news until about 7:48 when Wheel of Fortune got joined in progress. ABC World News and Jeopardy! aired on 6.2 Localish, as well as Wheel in its entirety. KYW also simulcasted the full CBS primetime lineup on WPSG that night in anticipation of more interruptions. They did the same with Price is Right the next morning. In NYC, WABC first cut in briefly during Wheel of Fortune from about 7:48-7:51 for updates on the flood warnings. Both WABC and WPVI had coverage during parts of the 9:00 hour as well, pre-empting part of The $100,
  15. Currently, the 12:30 PM airing of 25WOL is the secondary run, and the 6:30 PM is the primary. With this change, hopefully the 12:30 becomes the primary. Also, as with many of the other WNYW/WWOR syndies that have two runs, both runs of YBYL are annoyingly listed as the same episode even though they probably aren't since they're numbered S1 E1, E3, E5, etc. with odd numbers.
  16. J! probably will, except for Mike's five episodes when/if they air. However, the first week of their hiatus, which was another run of their "Around the World with Alex" package of reruns from the 2000's and 2010's, had a pretty big drop, so much that Wheel actually beat it (although to be fair, J! repeats are obvious and Wheel's are not; they try to disguise them as new eps a lot of the time so the GP doesn't know better)
  17. No Highway Thru Hell in NYC, either. No listings for it other than the TWC airings.
  18. Anyone know of any affiliates that picked up The Good Doctor for weekends? Looks like it wasn't cleared in NYC; Xfinity listings currently go to Monday 9/20 and there are no airings for it listed anywhere.
  19. Yeah, I think it's really just an "old times" thing. Wheel was creaming the competition (and J!) in ratings for decades. They probably figured it was so successful with just one airing with a prime access mandate that it wasn't even necessary to give it a secondary run. That all changed once Nielsen began counting multiple runs cumulatively and Judge Judy and Family Feud jumped to the top (both had up to four runs at the time; Feud now has six). Jeopardy! and Daytime Jeopardy! are counted separately in ratings; that's why they're titled differently. Given that Wheel ver
  20. All but one Central Time Zone station, actually. The only one that airs Wheel first is KVHP FOX 29 in Lake Charles, LA which airs Wheel at 6:00 and J! at 6:30. That is the only market in the Central Time Zone where those shows air at those times. Wheel airs at 6:30 in every other CT market and J! airs between 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Also, J! is required to air in prime access in ET/PT, just not CT/MT because it isn't usually possible to put both J! and Wheel there. However, J! is allowed to move to an earlier time slot when it's pre-empted; Wheel is not. Some affiliates will try it
  21. The FOX O&O's are airing a preview special for You Bet Your Life this weekend. WWOR My 9 is airing it Sunday at 3:30 PM and WNYW FOX 5 will air it later that day at 6:30 PM. It will also air on Monday 9/13 at 2:30 PM on both stations.
  22. Spoke a bit too soon. It's moving from 2:05 AM to 2:20 AM on WABC starting 9/13 (technically 14). Like with the main run, no episode info listed yet.
  23. KTXA in Dallas is getting rid of it as well, replacing it with Hot Bench. However, Millionaire is still listed on the CW Plus schedule at 6:00 and 6:30 AM weekdays. Could be a placeholder until they change it to something else, though.
  24. Looks like the Millionaire reruns may be done for good after the 27th, because that episode is the series finale. WLNY is replacing it with encores of ET (first airs on sister WCBS) starting the 30th. WCBS is keeping Judge Judy at 4:00 and 4:30 as of 9/13, but it looks like the 10:00/10:30 PM encores on WLNY will be gone; they're not listed on Xfinity Remote starting that day. (EDIT: never mind, they are now) What's also not listed starting 9/13 is Daytime Jeopardy! on WABC. I was curious as to whether they would air the entirety of last season like usual or just
  25. Olympic Zone is actually carried on the majority of NBC affiliates, not just the O&O's. It is mandatory for the O&O's, but optional for everyone else.
