"Evening Shade" sounds good. Wasn't that from the producers of "Designing Women"? Julia Sugarbaker was a hoot. She always gave the troglodytes (and anyone she considered to be a troglodyte) a good...

WRAY has added another subchannel, 30-4, that carries some kind of programming from a satellite network called ABN. The shows are call-in shows, but they seem to be taped programs from three years...

I applaud your point of view. For some things, the old way of doing things was better than the modern way. Those VCR's were not all that hard to program manually, and many of them would get the time...

Doesn't anyone still make a DVR for cheapskates? A DVR that you can manually program to record a show, the way people used to program VCRs manually?

Do you expect every subchannel to have a local feel or to have locally produced programming? Remember that Me-TV is simply a network. It's the affiliates that are local. If the main channel has...

Hank, Jr. doesn't have even a tenth of the talent (or the charm) that his daddy had.
If you want to hear a tune that will really lift your spirits, listen to Hank, Sr. sing "Jambalaya".

I read that the reason that they're showing so many episodes of Adam-12 and Dragnet is that those shows will be moving to another network (maybe Cozi) next year, so Me-TV is putting those shows into...

The main difference that I see between AntennaTV and MeTV is that MeTV shows more dramas (cop shows, westerns, some sci fi). AntennaTV is almost entirely comedy, except for the movies that it airs.
