Default ION'S CRAZY

What the hell's going on with ION? They used to air hits from the 70's and 80's. Now all they're airing are either early 90's and 2000's series. Crap. Straight crap. I guess I am no longer an ION viewer since they are apparently getting rid of my demographic of people (people interested in "The Wonder Years," "Silverspoons," "Diff'rent Strokes," "Different World," "Out of this World" and "Small Wonder" - to name a few).

Default ION's dumb schedule

I think I feel the same way as most people do about ION's choices of shows. Where are the shows from the 70's and 80's that I thought were supposed to air on this network? I don't care to watch ER, Dead Zone, Quantum Leap, Drew Carey, Boston Legal, Ghost Whisper, etc. I was really hoping they would air all those good sitcoms that I grew up watching in the 80's especially since most of them don't air on cable and they don't have them on DVD either ( Well, some shows have been released, but you get stuck watching the same season one dvd over and over because the studios don't release the rest of the seasons which I can't stand, like Silver Spoons, Benson, Gimme A Break! to name a few.) I guess ION has lost me as a viewer. I'll be back if they decide to air THE GOOD CLASSIC STUFF and NOT CRAP!!!

ION has now officially completely lost my interest. Not one show on the lineup interests me. They now seem to be going for more current dramas, which means by the end of the year, sitcoms will probably be gone entirely-LOL. The only sitcoms on the network in June are black sitcoms, which aren't even good black sitcoms. Where are the classics? Where's the afternoon sitcom block?

Now this channel finally sucks, Mama's Family was the only thing that I had to look forward to at 7pm. ION is turning back into PAX the old folks station.

Could have kept Mama's Family and Drew Carew and had them on before the Waynes Bros.
Good to see ER is coming next month.

They should have gotten rid of Wayans and Harvey altogether, and brought in more of the classic sitcoms, or Drew Carey.

Oh, now if it were turning back into PAX, we would have reruns of "Diagnosis Murder","Doc", That F.B. Eye show and "Miracle Pets" all back on the schedule

?????????????

The staff at ION needs a thorough psychiatric evaluation. This schedule is horrid. While I understand they want to distance themselves from it and it HAS been overplayed, they junk Mama's Family, and replace it with Quantum Leap? Excuse me? Now is Quantum Leap really doing as well as Mama's Family? I doubt. And they're adding some USA original too.

Evenings are a joke. Why are they so dead set on airing Steve Harvey and Wayans Bros? They could have moved Mama and Drew Carey to those timeslots.

What a disappointing network. Oh, for the quality programming we were getting last year at this time...I'd take anything that was pre-1990s. I guess they don't want the older shows anymore.

Their treatment of Drew Carey is a real slap in the face. When they rearranged the schedule a few months ago, for whatever reason, they reset DC back to the first episode. Now I don't think they will even make it back to where they were in the schedule before it goes off June 9th. And I'm guessing when it starts back up in the Fall they will reset it back to the beginning yet again. Pathetic scheduling!
