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
I wish they would follow this schedule. If they can't put these shows on during the week at least put them on in primetime on Sunday when people aren't asleep/going to bed.

Default Semi-Annoying

I myself do find the credit crunching of Antenna TV annoying as well especially as somebody who DVRs and converts/keeps the episodes without commercials.

It's a Catch-22 for me though.

Antenna TV has a habit now of airing shows you can't even get home Home Media it seems.

Mr. Belvedere Season 5 and 6 did not seem to have any DVD release last I looked.

The Joey Bishop Show I know only has Season 2 on DVD as I looked everywhere.

Also 227 seems to only have Season 1 on DVD not Seasons 2-5.

So even though it frustrates me, I feel I have no choice if I want to have copies of the above mentioned shows and probably other examples later as Antenna TV said to one Facebook user that they are trying to get lesser known stuff which tends to mean less chance of DVD releases.

Absolutely.

I will add that crunched credits is better than no show at all.

Seeing as how some folks here and elsewhere have Antenna TV affiliates that only broadcast part of Antenna TV's schedule, some people literally do see no show at times.

Default MeTV Holiday Gift

I guess even though my MeTV station will at times show sports games that wipe out it's programming I did get a "Holiday Gift".

It seems ever since MeTV switched to 16:9 and/or the station did some upgrades/improvements to their weather alert/school closings display on the main channel of NBC, I no longer have weather/school banners on MeTV.

I could be wrong but I think maybe they had the banners since the channel was NBC Weather Plus then Retro TV now MeTV.

It was frustrating when you want to keep your recordings but you had like half-inch thick banners at the bottom of your screen.

I know I could have lived with it, but I don't really need a record of what schools had delays or closings the day I recorded the episode.

CHiPs has been on at 6/5c from September 2014 to December 2015 & then at 5/4c from January 2016 to Early September 2016. Now it's on at 4/3c(the same timeslot that Adam 12 & Emergency previously hold respectively).

METV seems to be going down hill in my opinion. Every time they add a show , its more than likely a drama , not a sitcom. And the sitcoms they do air , with few exceptions , are not very good. That's why I stick to Antenna TV. I mainly like sitcoms so that's why I enjoy Antenna TV more

You hit the nail right on the head with this one.

My local station had RTV replaced by MeTV.

I seen Antenna TV back in 2011 in NYC when it started.

Even though I semi-enjoyed MeTV, I instantly went crazy over Antenna TV, it aired so many things I liked, Burns & Allen, Jack Benny, Norman Lear stuff, etc.
Now Carson, Joey Bishop, and 227.

I must prefer Comedy/Sitcoms to Drama/Westerns.

We had THIS for many years but oddly it took until Apr 2015 for us to get Antenna TV here.

I kept bugging my cable co to add it because I can't get the local station's signal being in a valley.

I never laid eyes on it until May 10th, 2015.

A quick side note, I hate the 16:9 that MeTV went with.

Antenna TV seems to be 16:9 but leaves the video 4:3 inside so it's easy to use video software to save the video. MeTV seems to crop off parts of the video making no recovery possible of those parts.
