    Lethal Weapon 4 is on TBS right now. Lethal Weapon 3 is showing on A&E. I just can't believe that it is to the benefit of these two channels to simultaneously run these movies against one another.

    I can't believe anyone would watch either one of them.

    They're not co-owned, so I guess they're not in the habit of checking each other's schedules.

    There's an ongoing scheduling situation in Australia that I discovered when I was there earlier this year: a cable channel shows "The Simpsons" weeknights at 5:55, and an over-the-air channel shows "The Simpsons" weeknights at 6:00. So if you have cable, you can tune in at 5:55 and have a full 5 minutes to decide whether or not you like that episode, and whether you want to flip to the other one.

    Certainly not on a channel that edits and puts in commercials.
