This week, they ran old, tired westerns, like Lone Ranger movies and Hopalong Cassidy, in prime time, in place of the the hour long, late 1970s/ to early1980s action/detective shows and the Mystery Movie episodes they had been running.  Next week, they are going back to their regular schedule.

 

Is this being done as an A/B experiment?  I have to admit that I have not watched a single Charlies or Bionic episode, and only occasionally look for Banicek or Magnum when there is absolutely nothing else on.

But you do get Cozi TV. as it is presently carried in the San Francisco area on WKNT 11.2.  According to Wikipedia, that station had poor coverage in San Francisco until September 12, 2005, when it moved its transmitter from, "Loma Prieta Peak (located between San Jose and Santa Cruz).... to San Bruno Mountain, giving it a signal comparable to the Bay Area's other major stations"

 

MeTV is viewable in San Francisco on KOYY-TV virtual channel 20.2.

They're probably showing The Lone Ranger due to the theatrical remake opens this week.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

CBS News Radio reported today that The Lone Ranger was the box office flop of last weekend, grossing just $49 million.

 

From Wikipedia:

 

After underperfoming during its opening weekend, the film was characterized by numerous media sources as a box office flop.The New York Times estimated that the film cost $375 million to produce and market, and would need to generate in an estimated $800 million worldwide to break even, after accounting for revenue splits with theater owners. The Hollywood Reporter noted that the losses from the film could surpass $150 million, with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures vice-president Dave Hollis calling these results "very disappointing".

Maybe I'm missing something, But what on earth did they do to Tonto? Why?

 

Having seen the advertisements I have no desire to go see that turkey.


Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?
