It's become clear that my local CBS affiliate is preempting every single episode of VM that *should* be on. Tonight (8/12) is no different. I have sent numerous messages, no responses.


Please post your CBS affiliate, city/area, yes or no regarding showing Veronica Mars, and then if yes, yes or no regarding HD.

Thanks TommyK


I will update the first post with a list of affiliates preempting and/or not showing HD if the list grows.

But then why should a station air a competing station's show? The station owners don't care that CBS and UPN are owned by Viacom.

Scowl, please stay on topic, I don't want this thread a debate. It is simply a database. Thank you.

Scowl is on topic, you claim the preemptions are shameful in the thread title. Scowl merely pointed out why it is not unreasonable for stations to balk at promoting the competition.

WANE-TV/DT

Fort Wayne, IN

Yes

Yes


WSBT-TV/DT

South Bend, IN

Yes (except for tonight; they're showing Da Bears vs. the Rams; the primetime schedule is being shifted to after late night, no idea about HD yet)

Yes


(Both stations air UPN on DTV and cable, so preempting wouldn't make much sense.)

If you want to avoid controversy, tone down the thread titles.

Yes

Yes (last week anyway)


Our UPN is a low power pretty much on cable only thing owned by the local NBC station. It is on DirecTV though which is suprising.
