    What in the blue hell is Comedy Central doing with their mid-day lineup? I used to come home from the end of my day at 1pm and watch Kids in the Hall. It was replaced briefly with Strangers with Candy, and now Action. There was a brief respite with Conan in there, too which was nice.

    Don't they realize that people want to actually plan their schedule out around their programming? I was nice to come home, have a lunch, and watch Conan or Kids.

    Sigh.

    My theory on it is that they lost the rights to air Kids in the Hall, and have simply been programming that slot with various programs until they can get the rights back or decide what to put in that slot permanently.

    But it's not just that slot, a lot of their repeat programming gets shuffled around seemingly at ramdom. It's incredibly frustrating.

    That's the only slot I've noticed it in. My advice to you would be to use the online schedule at their Web site. I believe you can view the schedule for an entire calendar month at once.

    their biggest mistake was cancelling strangers with candy, and my beloved upright citizens brigade. i have despised them since then. and yes, i'm bitter about it.

    I think they still have the rights to Kids in the Hall. My Tivo picks up about 4 episodes in a row about 1AM one night during the week. I can't remember which night...
