I can't wait to watch Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom on 9.3 Sunday morning, if they still run it. Even with just one other video channel, it was so starved for bandwidth that when a leopard moved, its spots turned into squares.
I'm still bummed out that no one in this market has picked up MeTV yet, though that channel has already dropped The Streets of San Francisco, which I thought would be its strongest daytime show. I have to wonder if that was due to some kind of contractual problem rather than a pure ratings-driven decision.
Today's Saturday, Western-laden schedule includes The Rebel (Johnny Yuma, was a rebel...) Branded (marked as the one who ran...), The Guns of Will Sonnett (No brag. Just fact.), The Big Valley (The show that gave us Lee Majors and Linda Evans), The Wild, Wild West, Batman (guest-starring Cesar Romero as The Joker), and then, in prime time, Lost in Space, Star Trek, and after a mediocre (who am I to say?) movie, insomniacs can enjoy Get Smart, Car 54 Where are you? (Ooh! Ooh!), and two episodes of Honey West, followed by The Rogues. I'd probably watch about half of those shows.
Their Sunday lineup is weaker, but this weekend includes a Columbo episode guest starring Patrick McGoohan, followed by David Jansen as The Fugitive.
