Well, I know he still checked in and responded to emails for quite a while. We even made plans to meet in Florida during one of my trips, but then he quit responding and I ended up losing his email...

I no longer have his personal email address, but the last time I tried to get in touch with him a couple of years ago, I didn't get any response to multiple emails.

Very true, especially with the DVR letting us watch our programs days/weeks later. I almost missed the SVU episode because I gave up on L&O years ago and only found out the hour before it aired. I...

And I absolutely love crossovers, even when it involves a show I don't watch regularly. I guess I finally win for a change. :)

I get it, but scandals aren't the norm. And from what I've seen most athletes are pretty darn good at riding the gravy train, so they're smart enough to pick good agents. ;) You'd also have to know...

I didn't say they were popular, just that someone somewhere watches the stupid things. Just like someone watches the infomercials at 3:00 am. :)

Who says college athletes are not literate? I sure didn't, so I don't know why you're directing your comment to me. Athletes may not be the most articulate or bright :), but they certainly aren't...

I guess you could say that's part of it here, but I think the main goal is to negotiate all at the same time. Fox already leverages the popularity of FNC/FBN to negotiate the prices of their other...

I tend to agree with you, but isn't a multi-thousand dollar a year scholarship already payment-in-kind to some degree? I'd like to audit an athletic program to see just how much a college makes off...

From what I read, it doesn't sound like it has anything to do with "forced" bundling. The disagreement is with Fox adding channels to the negotiations that are already under contract and whose...

KAET has always been one of the most responsive stations in the valley. I haven't had to contact them for quite some time, so it's nice to know they're still that way.

Nothing wrong with doing that to let folks know. I read your comment as if you were going to post a complaint there. I usually just post here and never thought of posting to their page on Facebook....

Same to you. Yeah, the thread is quiet. I think we always have stuff to complain about, just got used to it falling on deaf ears. ;)

I agree with Domino, Rovi is not going to care about Facebook and I don't think they'll care about the FCC either. :) I'm not sure there's even a rule or regulation that says they have to provide the...

I will agree when it comes to most cartoons. I don't like most of them today, but then at 67 I don't expect to. Most of those you mention are considered too violent today, even though I think there...

I'll never understand what happened to family-friendly programming (Waltons, Little House, etc.), other than that the coveted 18-49 crowd doesn't seem to like them. Maybe they come from violent video...
