View Full Version : Leaving E!

E! does not have Melrose Place scheduled anymore (so far), but style. is airing the show still. Weekdays 10am & 6pm and weekends 1 & 2 pm.
I'm guessing E! won't be airing the show because they have just gotten the rights from USA Network to air Bloomberg News from 5-8am, pushing back all the shows and pre-empting Melrose Place, but that's just my guess (ex: E! THS used to start 7am, now it'll start 8am). I think Melrose Place had a 6 month run (June-Jan) on E!, as of now style is still airing it.
How quaint :rolleyes:
When E! would go back to 1992, I planned on timer taping the 8am central airing. But in a way that's good because my VCR is on the blink. But then again, I could wait til style goes back to 1992, which will be a shorter wait, but then MP airs on style opposite "Magnum PI" on Hallmark and "Marcus Welby MD" on my Independent. Maybe I can take a break from Marc for a while and when my VCR is back to normal, I can timer tape the overnight showing of Magnum.

It was scheduled to come back January 12th, but now Pav is right, it's not scheduled anymore.
I wish DirecTV would add style. I'd like to finish taping the series, although I have a lot of the last two seasons from FOX (not all, just scattered eps, and not the best quality) and remember 6-7 the most, so it's not *too* big of a loss, LOL.
Pav, instead of me e-mailing you, figured I'd ask here, do you have any idea how long style has Melrose Place? I'm assuming they are using E!'s old contract that started a few years back, but I assumed that expired when E! stopped airing it (around the time MP was cancelled, I believe)...

Style has the rights to Melrose Place is the way I understood it.
On my tv I always saw it say Style Network on E! so I thought E was pushing the style network as one of its affiliates. And once style was officialy on the cable network E was going to stop showing Melrose and other Style shows.
I could be wrong, just the way I understood things to be
