It's not really that anyone is taking Congress "out of the loop". Congress is a legislative body, not an executive agency or an "independent agency" like the FCC (subject to congressional oversight...

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...

I thought that WNBT did broadcast on Channel 1 at 50-56 MHz for a short period of time, and then after WWII the frequencies for the channels were changed, and eventually Channel 1 was removed from TV...

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.

AntennaTV released its new fall schedule. For early risers, the one-two combo of "Burns and Allen" at 5:00 a.m. and "Patty Duke" at 6:00 a.m. is going to be a nice accompaniment to the first several...

Well, Me-TV released its new fall schedule today. Is the transplanted KVNV on the air promoting it yet? Time's-a-wastin'. Better fire up that RF3 blowtorch and then tell the cable and satellite...

I was just joking in my remark concerning FDR and the 1939 World's Fair. I thought that another poster was giving President Reagan too much credit for the development of HDTV, so I figured why not...

Well, I guess there are enough commendations to go around, then! FDR launched broadcast commercial TV, Ronald Reagan kept HDTV on track (perhaps he used the money from the arms sales to Iran), and Al...

Yeah, and if FDR hadn't made that presentation at the 1939 World's Fair, the U.S. would have never had television at all!

The fact is that the authorization for the spectrum auctions was passed by both...

In some of the really big markets, I would not be at all surprised to see FOX and MyTV wind up sharing an allocation and CBS and CW sharing an allocation.

In their defense, there is something eminently sensible about having Channel 3 be on Channel 3, not on some crazy channel number such as 1284.
