    There are a handful of stations where Me-TV is on the main channel. It's mostly stations that get bought and sold a lot.

    In most markets, it's on a subchannel (WOIO 19.2 here, 19.1 is CBS).

    The cost of what they're doing will bite him in the posterior. They'll be out of money in less than a year...mark my word!

    And, just over a month later, someone has picked up Me-TV in Dallas.

    They didn't need to deal with the Grand Local Programming Vision of Brian Joyce after all. :)

    MeTV seems to be moving into the 70s. They have Wonder Woman Starting this Friday. I'll get to see Linda Carter spin again. hehe And they are now showing Land of the Lost. As a Kid I loved both of these shows.

    Looking forward to Wonder Woman, the 70's were pretty well represented already Cannon, Hawaii 5 O, Kojak, Streets Of San Francisco etc. Is the reason I call it the channel where big Fords roam freely.

    With the windows shot out, etc.

    I imagine if "Cannon" were made in the 1990s, Frank Cannon would have to be in a huge pickup or SUV. I don't think they MAKE big Ford sedans now.

    Denver ish...
    I recorded that on my answering machine way back then.

    On another note...
    It is amazing that Jim Rockford could get so beat up every episode and still not get the girl or get paid. No wonder he lived in that ratty little trailer.

    I'm not sure those modern cars are big enough for Cannon. The Hummer might be, or maybe one of those big Ford Explorers.

    Jim "got the girl" from time to time, though he mostly let the pretty women go at the end of the episode...it just wouldn't work out, or they were leaving town, or something.

    He dated Beth Davenport (his attorney), but I don't think that was an active relationship in the show's timeline.

    Geez, I remember all this about "The Rockford Files" and I can't remember where I put my keys from time to time...

    Loving watching Wonder Woman, it's just as much fun now as when I was a kid.

    However, watching it now I realize that she would NEVER have gotten cast today, she'd be considered 'fat' by current standards.

    See, and I have never pictured Amazon warriors as skinny little women.

    Lucy Lawless as Xena fits my bill.

    Looks like they moved Lost in Space to the midnight slot and sank Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

    I just realized the actress who played Beth Davenport (Rockford Files) was also in other Me-TV shows...but in one I remember a lot.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gretchen_Corbett

    She was also on a Columbo episode about a fitness store chain owner who murdered the partner who was going to expose him as a fraud.

    In that episode, she played the murderer's secretary/girlfriend, and answered the door to his home wearing a bikini, which really flustered Columbo.

    The killer was played by Robert Conrad, who I talked to on the phone one Saturday morning in the 1990s.
