Got up this morning and noticed that HLN was no longer in the guide, and I couldn't manually tune to it either.

Anyone else have this issue/glitch?

I watched it from around 8:30 till 9:00 EST today without any problem. I don't know if it was in the guide but it was in my QuickTune so I assume it was.

Got it in the guide (ch. 204) here and can tune to it.

But since its an SD only channel, many who regularly post in the forum here wouldn't have noticed or cared anyhow I guess ... :sure:

Got home from work, and it was back in the guide again. Weird, though I've heard of this happening with other channels before on this forum.

Gotta have my Robin Meade in the morning!

I lost CNW for about 5 min with a BIG TIME SLOW DOWN to the box as well.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Haven't you noticed? No one watches CNN or HLN anymore.

Looks like 730,000 prime time viewers disagree with you.

Did I miss Robin Meade in a bikini? That's the only way I'd tune in to HLN.

CNN just had its lowest ratings in over 15 years. No one watches it, unless you are at the airport and have to.

I'm sure you picked up your info from this article that spins things with a dramatic title. It makes it sound like overall ratings YTD are the lowest in 15 years. Then you read on and its one program for a 1 hr block of time, viewers 25-54, not overall ratings for this year for all demographics. And as I mentioned above, 735,000 prime time viewers, that were not at the airport disagree with you.

CNN’s Primetime Demo Ratings Hit 15 Year Low


Unfortunately for CNN, “Piers Morgan Tonight” was the apparent victim of the busy night, drawing only 39,000 viewers 25-54 at 9 PM. To say those ratings are anomalous would be something of an understatement. That is the lowest 9 PM weekday demo rating for CNN since at least 1997.


And I'm glad HLN is on, I watch it every morning when I'm out of town on business and want to catch up on whats going on in a short period of time.

Now that's some serious media spin by Fox News. :nono::eek2:
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
