  1. Yep, WCBS filled it with Judge Judy reruns on Mondays and repeats of the previous day's Inside Edition from Tuesday-Friday. WABC did only do 30 minutes up until the early 2010's. They used to air the syndicated version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? at 12:30. It later moved to 2:00 PM before the show was cancelled in 2019.
  2. Rachael Ray is playing a "retro week" of past episodes this week. Monday's episode was the show's very first. Interestingly, all the closing logos at the end were kept intact, including the old "KingWorld" logo (now CBSTVD).
  3. It looks like they keep pre-empting one of the two runs with infomercials, according to their website schedule, but they seem to still be carrying both runs for next season.
  4. I stand corrected. I contacted them today asking if they had any plans to air Thursday's Wheel since it's the season finale, and they said it will air at 4:30 AM that morning (not the morning after; 14.5 hours early!!) on their CW+ subchannel. So much for other stations saying, "We're not allowed to air Wheel before 7:00".
  5. That lists Dr. Phil twice, at 8:00 PM and 5:00 AM. I really doubt the WCBS/WLNY duopoly will air Phil a total of three times a day. If anything, if Drew at 10 is true, maybe the Judys move to 5:00 AM.
  6. Probably since the series premiere. A bunch of 1997 Wheel of Fortune recordings from WLNY have been surfacing online these past few months and some of them have promos for Judge Judy at 10:00. Where did you see this, though? My listings have the Drew repeats at 8:00 PM (bumping the Dr. Phil repeat to 5:00 AM the next day), and the Judy's still at 10. Although annoyingly, Xfinity still lists them as the same episodes that air at 4:00 on WCBS even though they're not.
  7. It's continuing on WLNY, but it's being reduced from two runs to one starting 9/14, and only repeats are airing for now.
  8. WBZ pre-empts Wheel about twice as often as J!. Most of the non-NFL-season affairs are only half an hour and they always choose J! over Wheel, even if it means moving it to Wheel's time slot. Also, WBZ moved J! to 7:00 during TNF ever since they started carrying it in 2014, according to a local Wheel fan back then, so Wheel would have been the one only airing twice a week. https://buyavowel.boards.net/post/59340/thread Not only that, but once the pandemic started, WBZ began airing infomercials at 7:00 and 7:30 on most Saturdays (except for July 4), relegating Wheel and
  9. PAA repeats on WSBK over the weekend, so it's totally pointless for them to air it on WBZ anyway. And Jeopardy! does move to WSBK if a tournament episode is pre-empted, but Wheel never does. WBZ even pre-empted a repeat of a Boston-themed episode they sponsored with an offseason PAA this summer. I heard that when the game shows first moved over, they didn't air the Friday episodes at all, except for special Boston-themed episodes of Wheel (that were actually filmed in Boston to promote the move), which would air Saturdays at 7:30, pre-empting Jeopardy! Weekend. Nowadays, you'll never see WBZ p
  10. One more change that actually happened a few months ago and is probably permanent: Wheel of Fortune Weekend now airs on KTXA instead of KTVT, one of the few markets to separate the weekday and weekend runs between two stations.
  11. Not that. WBZ has a local program called Patriots All Access that airs every Friday during NFL season, and also on several Fridays during the offseason. It airs on WBZ at 7:00 PM and then repeats on WSBK sometime on Sunday mornings. Friday episodes of Wheel of Fortune and most Friday eps of Jeopardy! are bumped to overnight. Jeopardy! gets moved to WSBK if it's a tournament episode, but Wheel never gets moved there. The offseason episodes of PAA are only half an hour, so only Wheel gets preempted. Also, whenever WBZ has to preempt 7:30 for a special event, they move Jeopardy! to 7:00 and bump
  12. And Wheel of Fortune will continue to be pre-empted to 2:07 AM every Friday night for NFL season (with Jeopardy! also bumped roughly half the time).
  13. WRBL (CBS) in Columbus, GA added a newscast on Saturdays at 7:00 PM and now follows it with infomercials at 7:30. As a result, the weekend run of Wheel of Fortune (previously 7:30) now airs Saturday nights at 11:30 PM followed by Weekend Jeopardy! (previously 7:00) at midnight.
  14. In Dallas, it's moving from 2:00 PM on KTVT (CBS O&O), in favor of Drew, to 9:00 AM on KDAF (CW), replacing a double run of DailyMailTV. In what is probably one of the few cases of Millionaire returning to the same station it aired on its first-run, KTXA in Dallas (indie) now airs it at 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM. During the show's final years in first-run, they only aired one run at 6:30, which is now repeats of KTVT's 6:00 news. Also, KTXA replaced a HIMYM double run with a RightThisMinute double run at 8:00 PM.
  15. So it looks like Wheel and Ellen really are the only strictly-single-airing weekday syndies, unless anyone knows of any markets that air Ellen twice. I've never seen it, and I know for a fact Wheel doesn't (although WJFW in Rhinelander, WI once repeated the same day's Jeopardy! and Wheel in primetime to replace the infamous 30 Rock reunion special that most NBC affiliates refused to air).
  16. I could have sworn I've seen at least one market repeat Rachael Ray overnight... unless that was its only airing.
  17. Go to zap2it.com and enter zip code 48864.
  18. It is indeed leaving syndication. Sony is now offering Common Knowledge instead. Both shows will continue airing in first-run on GSN. Guess The Game is leaving syndication as well.
  19. Are there are any weekday syndies besides Wheel of Fortune and Ellen that don't offer a second airing of any kind - whether it's a full-on second run, or an "encore airing" like many markets do with the newsmagazine shows, and many of the hour-long talk shows? I know for sure WOF doesn't, and I've never seen any markets repeat Ellen overnight or on lesser sister stations, but I've seen it with all the other hour talks. It's always bothered me that Wheel only has one run, since every other syndicated game show gets one from the get go (Funny You Should Ask, 25 Words or Less, America
  20. WLNY has dropped How I Met Your Mother and replaced it with Millionaire. They picked up the new syndie Millionaire package (which is only the 175 episodes from its final season) back in June when Disney/ABC first started rolling it out, replacing Cops. They only carry the primary run and they had been delaying the five weekday episodes to random weekend slots, usually with the Mon-Tue eps on Saturday nights from 5-6, the Wed ep on Sunday afternoon at 2, and the Thu-Fri eps Mondays from 2-3 AM. Starting this week, the show now airs weeknights at 1:00 AM in HIMYM's former slot, but still only on
  21. WCBS temporarily halted its noon newscasts after an employee tested positive for COVID and they had to shut down their studio. On Mondays, it was replaced with a fifth Judge Judy. Normally, the A and B runs air on WCBS at 4:00 and 4:30 PM, then the C and D runs air on WLNY at 10:00 and 10:30 PM (though TV listings list them as repeats of A and B). The 12:00 WCBS airings were the C run, so that episode would air twice. On Tuesday-Friday, they filled 12:00 with repeats of the previous day's Inside Edition, which first airs on WCBS at 7:00 PM. I never really understood why they didn't just use Mo
  22. Family Feuds 5 and 6 have already been a thing in NYC for at least two weeks now. WWOR added two more episodes at 11:00 and 11:30 PM. However, they are currently repeats of the exact same episodes that air at 7:00 and 7:30 PM, the first two airings of the night - the "A and B" feeds. I'm guessing that's until the "E and F" feeds officially go live on 9/14. There are still only four Feud airings for weekends, though. Is this a first for syndication - a show getting six weekday runs? I don't even know of any other shows that get four runs besides Judge Judy.
  23. KABC Los Angeles is now only airing the last ~25 minutes of WNN. The Kelly & Ryan repeat pre-empts the rest of it starting at 2:05.
  24. WLNY was definitely the last for Wheel, so it was probably the last for J! too. The WCBS buyout took effect in March 2012. Only CJON in Newfoundland, Canada airs Wheel before 7:00 PM Eastern - at 5:00 PM local time or 3:30 ET, ever since they acquired it in 2014. Meanwhile, first-run J! airs as early as 9:30 AM in the Central Time Zone (with this example being WAKA in Alabama. They do air Wheel too, but at 6:30 of course). That being said, WSYT in Syracuse airs J! at 6:30 ET when pre-empted by Thursday Night Football and World Series pregame since it's pre-empted at 7:30. They also
  25. As of 2020, no markets in the Eastern Time Zone air the main run of J! earlier than 7:00 PM Eastern except if a station moves it earlier for a pre-emption, which CBSTVD is much more chill about than if one were to ask about doing that with Wheel. However, some markets list the secondary/"Daytime" run as the as the main run even though that's not the case (such as WBOC in Salisbury, MD carrying DJ! at 4:30 PM and WRDE carrying the main J! at 7:30 after Wheel; WBOC's airings are listed as the same as WRDE's).
