Anyone watching Manhattan?

I am very interested and it is getting great reviews so far. It is on WGN America and I think this is their first original series.

Manhattan

I tried to tivo it but it looks like it only airs once a week and I have too many conflicts. My Sunday night tivo schedule is ridiculous.

I saw a commercial for it and thought it looked interesting. Said it was on DirecTV 307, but I did not see that channel in my guide. So, I'm guessing I'm not in the tier that gets that channel. I'm sure it will be on Amazon Prime, Netflix or Hulu some day. I'll wait to see it there.

Really? I had conflicts as well and just assumed it would pick up a rerun. Well time for alternate plan.

WGN America's website says it reruns tonight, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Hmm. I don't see it in my tivo's guide at all now, just the Woody Allen movie on the MGM channel. I swear there were two entries in the guide yesterday, one for this show and one for the movie. I don't get WGN, at least I don't think so but it looked like it was broadcasting on another channel. Either that or I mistook it for another show/movie named Manhattan.

It aired several times last night, just like most of the Sunday night cable dramas do. I watched it and it was pretty good. Amazingly well done from a production and cinematography standpoint, but that's to be expected with Tommy Schlamme directing. It was well written and established several interesting characters in the first episode. I'm definitely on board to see how it goes.

Oh, and to the OP, this is WGN's second original series. Their first is Salem, which recently completed its first season.

I will be. I watched the intro program they produced also. When I was a very young kid, I'd visit my grandma in the Catskills. She lived on an estate managed by a very interesting guy who would take me driving through the fields in a Willys jeep and swimming in the pool suspended at the end of the bug screen. During the war, he was a recruiter working for the project recruiting college scientists. Needless to say, he had to be very deceptive about the overall project.

Here--Cleveland--the regular fox station played it at 10 or 11 pm. Don't know why. I haven't watched yet. Hopefully it recorded, since Big Brother ended up being 45 minutes of storm coverage.

According to my guide data, the Pilot is reairing twice tonight, twice on Wednesday night, and twice on Thursday night. The second episode is scheduled to air four times next Sunday night for those with conflicts.

Cool, I'm in a 3 month trial of Hulu Plus right now. I'll have to check it out.

I always forget about this TiVo app on my phone. Much easier to use than the TiVo mobile site used to be. I added the SP from the app while here at work. It shows up right away in my to do list.

+1 on the Hulu Plus goodness. My lineup doesn't have WGN america in HD (I'm surprised I get it at all but that's a different thread) and even in the first minute or two as it was recording last night I could see some content being cut off the sides.

So's mine, but I use a HTPC with more tuners than any Tivo so conflicts are a non-issue for me. Some nights I have six or seven shows recording simultaneously, mostly due to overlap.

Let Tivo find it

I knew we didn't get WGN, but I did a "find programs" and found it was on WPIX 11 (NY), so TiVo doing what it does best!

Looks like it could be pretty good, first episode was slow, but most are since they have a lot to establish.

I liked west wing, and shows like Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, and Halt & Catch fire, and this seems to be well done.

I don't get WGN America, but my local FOX channel is airing it at 11 pm on Sunday evenings.

Man.. I just had to watch the first episode that was aired again Monday night. I really enjoyed it. Now Manhattan adds yet another show to my already over crowded Sunday nights this Summer. I'll be watching the Sunday shows into Tuesday since I have so many to watch now.

Interestingly it also aired on our local CW channel (I believe it's owned by the same company that owns WGN).

I thought it was a bit boring, but it's the pilot and they have to establish the characters. I'm still kind of confused about each character, but I'm sure I'll get there. I'm in for now.

For people who got it on their local, non-WGN channel, is it airing more than once a week and is there an episode scheduled for this upcoming Sunday (Aug 3)?

I searched my DirecTV guide and I only saw WGN showing it. I didn't see it on any Fox or CW or whatever channel.

I did watch it last night on Hulu Plus. I liked it enough that I'll keep watching it. I was also a little confused by the characters. Like a couple of them looked similar to me and I couldn't remember which one was which.

It was on Fox for me, and no more shows scheduled.

I wonder if for those of us who saw it on our local channels, if it's because our local channel is owned by the same parent company. Think think WPIX in NY is owned by the Tribune Company which at least USED to own WGN, and may still do.

It's common for affiliated networks to show pilots of new shows just to increase reach and saturation. But I would be very surprised if that continued after the pilot episode. WGN is trying to build a name for itself, and that is undermined if people can watch every episode on their local FOX or CW affiliate.
