    Officially Fox is now schedualing football postgame, at least in the Philadelphia market.

    At least they're no longer lying about showing Futurama

    No such luck in central Illinois. Tonight the Bloomington FOX affiliate was scheduled to run a King of the Hill repeat (?!) at 6:30 (Futurama was axed from the start), but of course when our Rams game finished at 6:30 they went to the end of another game, then to the post-game.
    Last week was about the same, except that Futurama was on the schedule. The game went over, then we got the end of another game, then post-game.
    Given that FOX continues to air the new episodes on the west coast, why can't they give those episodes to their affiliates elsewhere to air sometime? If nothing else, we could at least set our Tivos and VCRs to record 'em in the early AM hours. But no, FOX just sits on 'em. [​IMG]

    Um, Jeff, don't hurt your arm patting yourself on the back. This is nothing new; Fox alternated between Futurama and post-game shows last year, too. The past two weeks have had "NFL Post-game" scheduled in Boston; next week has Futurama scheduled despite a 4pm starting game.

    I think it would be much better if the NFL just learned to tell time

    You forget who was going to stand outside of a Flyers game and get the shit beaten out of him by Flyers fans if Comcast didn't exempt Buffy from their idiotic deal

    I think Sports should be segregated to it's own network and leave Sitcom/Drama/Scifi/etc networks alone.

    Hey, think of it as evolution in action - if Jeff's willing to do that, maybe he shouldn't be in the gene pool. [​IMG]

    Yeah, but he could still be cloned.

    Great, now I've just given myself nightmares.

    just trying to please Jason

    The bottom line is that if you make a big enough spectacle, news agencies DO pick up on it and then it turns into public humiliation, the only way to get a corporation to give a shit
