    I sent my letter. Even though I don't watch on a set schedule, I do enjoy what TRIO has to offer (loved those Lost Pilots). [​IMG]

    No! I'll send an e-mail to support it. It's become one of my favorite channels, what with the pilots, and the outlaw comics month, and the Quentin Tarantino presents week, and Easy Riders, Raging Bulls...lots of fun stuff gets aired on that station.

    I sent my letter. I love Sessions at West 54th and would hate to see it off the air.

    Dang it! I love TRIO! Not just any channel would run Battle of the Network Stars and Pink Lady episodes. Not to mention their great concert films. Dang it, dang it, DANG IT!!!

    I sent my letter and forwarded the link to my husband to send one in.

    The ridiculous thing is what finally caused me to switch to DirecTv in March was that I couldn't get TRIO on digital cable and I was desperate to watch "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" after seeing it reviewed on Ebert & Roeper. I have been a very happy DirecTV customer ever since. It is totally unthinkable they want to get rid of this channel. I loved the marathon they aired a few months back of unaired pilot TV shows.

    Yay! We've been watching a lot of Trio the past few days. What other network shows Battle of the Network Stars from the 1970's and the Miss America Pageant 1983?

    I may be a nostalgia/pop-culture junkie, but I find watching these old programs fascinating.
