So WLNY (virtual 55) is owned by CBS but carries CBS programming only on a secondary basis, having most of its programming just be syndicated shows? And its signal covers only Long Island and a small portion of Connecticut, the same portion of Connecticut that is at the heart of the dispute between WJLP and WFSB over whether WJLP can use Channel 3 as its virtual channel number?

Meanwhile, it's not clear for how long WZME will continue to serve the NYC market as a Me-TV affiliate.

Man, having so many markets (Connecticut, NYC, Jersey, Philadelphia) packed so close together makes for a lot of complications in assigning RF allocations and virtual channel numbers and deciding what slots the stations get on cable systems.

Until WJLP gains broad coverage (Satellite, TWC, CV, Comcast). Right now only FiOS is carrying it.

Any ideas as to why WCBS does not use 2.2 to carry alternate programming as other channels do?

Because cable and satellite systems do not carry CBS+ 2.2.
