I'm upset about Petticoat Junction being off the schedule.

I still like the Sunday schedule 12-5pm.

Same here actually.

My MeTV station finally got all of it's audio problems fixed and no longer show school closing banners on the screen at times.

After all that, MeTV takes Petticoat Junction off.....

They still refuse to air two episodes of Carol Burnett......

I think I am under a Sinclair curse.

My MeTV is done by Sinclair Broadcast Group.

From Jan 2015 until Feb 2016 there was audio issues where the audio would drop out missing around 1 second of audio randomly.

Then Feb 2016-Jul 2016 the audio turned to staticy/choppy like you were hearing it through a drive-thru speaker.

Now that all audio issues are fixed, Sinclair is using American Sports Network to air games that wiped out Carol Burnett twice for me.

I've been having issues since Jan 2015, what's waiting until March 2017 and Jul 2017 for re-airs of the preempted ones? LoL

But overall MeTV's 2017 schedule does not show anything exciting.

Antenna TV will be on my DVR more often with 227 & Joey Bishop Show.

I am not liking the change of Gilligan & Happy Days at all. While I love those other Sunday sitcoms that will be on, more than likely they won't be on here in Buffalo as they love to show so many infomercials.

I wish we could all go back to the days of MeTV and other subchannels airing just whatever the affiliated network aired.

While seeing folks on this forum, some other forums, and just randomly seeing TV schedules across the country, it's a shame how badly MeTV and some Antenna TV's are treated.

Some areas have MeTV slapped together with MyNetworkTV and don't even air Carol Burnett at all.

Others have news reruns and infomercials.

Some Antenna TV's seem to only broadcast part of the day and another network or local programming airs the other times.

It seems like back in 2009 you more so didn't have all of this pre-empted and mashups.

My MeTV is owned by Sinclair and they just keep adding more and more American Sports Net games on.

I seriously wish they'd make a completely separate subchannel for it all.

Who turns to MeTV to watch sports anyway? They don't even put ads up only put it in the TV Guide.

I so wish Cox Television did not sell the station to Sinclair. Cox never did preempting of any kind on MeTV.

The Sunday schedule we don't get Love Boat, The Honeymooners or The Odd Couple, three shows I would definitely watch if we did.
When Carol Burnett & friends started we got it but then they dumped it for The King of Queens which airs on many channels here.

They randomly preempt Carol Burnett and Friends here.

Normally they show it but sometimes they will randomly play a basketball or hockey game on.

I know I don't follow sports but I didn't realize people played so many sports so late until almost midnight.

I agree. I typically only watch "Mama's Family" on Weeknights, "Svengoolie" on Saturday nights and the Sunday Funnies (Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, I Love Lucy & The Love Boat) but overall yeah not too exciting.

If they would mix the schedule up more , maybe I'd watch. Instead of the same tired shows( I Love Lucy , Gunsmoke , Happy Days ) they could possibly air shows like Medical Center , Love , American Style , Here's Lucy and others.

It would also help if METV would play the shows on the Sunday night lineup more often. Shows like Taxi , Mary Tyler Moore , or Sgt. Bilko. It'd be better than the same tired shows again and again

I don't like how Me-tv doesn't air the sitcoms on sunday night until 10pm.

Their 10pm to 1am schedule should be 8pm to 11pm

8pm-The Odd Couple
8:30pm-Honeymooners
9pm-Cheers
9:30pm-Bob Newhart
10pm-Mary Tyler
10:30pm-Taxi

Yeah. The thing is that their schedule is pulling in big ratings for them so they won't change. And for Sunday, I think Kolchack: The Night Stalker is a welcome addition to Sunday nights.

Don't really care for either. Antenna has better shows but crunches credits and has poor scheduling. MeTV doesn't crunch credits but doesn't have as many good shows and has poor scheduling. I wish Get Smart was on 5 days a week in prime time instead of burying it late Sunday/early Monday. For me, I prefer Laff. Decent scheduling and programs and no credit crunches. I mostly watch DVDs and Kodi though.

Minor issue in my opinion. I think TV show traders are annoyed by it but the average person who watches the show doesn't care
