I like the new channel "Comet" on 17.2, nice step up from what they had on there before, that old TCM copycat network.....zzzzzzz.
Also, I likes me some 17.3 GRIT once in a while, Chuck Norris/Silent Rage with Flounder as sidekick, that's high quality programing! Also, can one ever get too much Andy Sipowitz on 8.3, the NYPD Blues network ?
Having Johnny Carson back on the air is such a pleasure! Nice seeing all those old big timey stars appear, like Jackie Gleason. It's fun trying to remember the news events for the show date, so you can get the references in the monologue. Example, last nights Billy Carter watering the flowerpot joke was in reference to his very public urination escapade, when he got off a plane and took a whiz on the runway, in full view of the press corps.
I hope they show one of the Cooper Iowa Centennial episodes from 1982, when the town elected Johnny Carson mayor (remember the votes sealed in the fruit jar) for all the attention he gave Cooper (pop 50).
I would like to see other networks pick up on that concept, and air reruns of late night TV shows, like David Letterman, Tom Snyder, Jay Leno, as well as Johnny Carson, Conan O'brien. Would be really fun if they could alternate them, and show a different one every night in the same time slot, sort of a grab bag of late night kind of deal, it will never happen but I can dream.
Noticed 23.1 has changed to 23.2, and 5.2 was dropped several months ago. I thought WOI 5.1 was going to merge into KCWI's UHF transmitter frequency to step up the power? Also happy these past several months I'm getting a pretty reliable signal on ION 39.1 now, not strong but enough to provide a stable picture. Did they nudge up the power a bit?
