WOF, J! moving in Green Bay
« Reply #45 on: August 30, 2005, 06:57:16 AM »
Just to wrap up the situation in Green Bay:

WLUK is running J/WOF together at 6/6:30 pm CT (WLUK runs its local news from 5-6, so the shows run against news at 6 on the other three network affils). WLUK is also running what it calls "Jeopardy II" (the second-run, which it says are last-years eps) at 11 am (WFRV hadn't run those).

WFRV gets Entertainment Tonight (which had run at 6:30 at WLUK) and is replacing J at 3:30 with the revived A Current Affair.

WFRV, which (when I did a story) a couple of years ago said it considered the shows "the gold standard" in syndication, now says it hopes getting ET will help it "skew younger" coming out of its news.
This isn't a plug, but you can ask me about my book.

I just saw a commercial promoting Jeopardy's move back to the station that it started at in the Roanoke-Lynchburg market...WDBJ-7 in two weeks.  Are Wheel and Jeopardy switching flagship stations in NY and LA?

Very doubtful, considering that they are both ABC O&O's....

And that somebody would have said something about it long ago (namely Zach, or me if I got to it before he did).
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

IIRC, the ABC O&Os have a pretty long term deal with King World for J! & Wheel!

Just one significant time switch in the DC market:

WUSA-9 (CBS) moves WWTBAM from 4 pm to 10:30 am, right before TPIR.

Everything else holds -- double-run FF on WDCA-20 at 10 am and WOF/J at 7 and 7:30 on WJLA-7.

In Dallas, WFAA lets go of both Wheel & Jeopardy! & they switch over to the exclusive home (except for Family Feud) of game shows, KTVT-11.

So KTVT will have TPIR, Millionaire, Jeopardy! & Wheel.  Since I use to live in Houston & that the games are now on a CBS affiliate, I'm right back where I started from!

<WWTBAM loss> No, the correct answer is WWTBAM will be on WFAA replacing J!

Except for Family Feud, looks like Houston & Dallas (I-45) will have a match!

KHOU/KTVT = The Price Is Right/Jeopardy!/Wheel
KTRK/WFAA = Millionaire
