Returning and not returning series.
Okay, I don't doubt that many are and aren't returning, but some have sources and others don't. Am I the only one that sees a problem with this? Shouldn't they all have sources, or not all have sources? Just a question. --HELLØ ŦHERE 20:59, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Exactly. Harper's Island hasn't been canceled and could last beyond a season (though the premiere's ratings leave a lot to be asked for as it fell). But most of them are pretty right. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:24, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Returning Series & New Series
I think we need to stop listing 'rumoured' pick ups and pilots , if people can source a series as being renewed or being ordered beyond the pilot page then feel free to add them but otherwise we'll get in a position like last year where everyone just keeps putting their favourite show in the 'renewel' list when no actual announcement has been made. I have tried to find sources for all the existing shows listed before I removed, if anyone has a source for a show I removed then please feel free to add it back with a ref. Richardm9 (talk) 10:40, 23 March 2009 (UTC) I'm not sure how to edit this page, but here's the official press release from FOX for the season, somebody should be able to work with this. http://tvbythenumbers.com/2009/05/18/fox2009-10-schedule-announced/18882 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:49, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Lost is incorrectly placed in this category, which gives wrong connotations. The series will not be canceled on May of 2010. That's simply when the series is scheduled to end. The story will (in theory) be completed and the production company will cease making new episodes. However, that's remarkably different from a series being canceled before the production company is done telling its stories. - ZachsMind (talk) 14:17, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
What about the other half of the year?
- Because of the nature of TV seasons in the U.S., these schedules cover the fall and winter schedules of the first year in the name and the spring and summer schedules of the second year. The summer schedule for 2009 can be found here. kingdom2 (talk) 19:35, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
What about "Inside the Box"?
Actually, I think MyNetworkTV should be included. True it won't have the "traditional" broadcast model they won't exactly be a "programming service" but a hybrid of the two. Also they will still be competing with the other five networks and they do follow The CW closely in the ratings so it wouldn't hurt. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 01:51, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
- I don't agree. Now that the schedules are out, it's clear that MyNetworkTV is a syndication package. WWE SmackDown is now a syndicated show (http://snta.com/php/display.php?p=PR_SP_syndicator&s_id=3). Ion Television runs a similar prime-time schedule, with one original series this season, a movie, and reruns of "NCIS," "Ghost Whisperer," and "Criminal Minds." Besides that, someone removed the designation "repeat" (or "encore") from the MyNetworkTV listings on this page, which may create confusion. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:38, 2 October 2009 (UTC)--22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:24, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
- MyNetworkTV is not a network, to say otherwise in a violation of WP:NOR. - Davodd (talk) 23:53, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Jay Leno in the grid
The entry for the Jay Leno Show in the schedule grid should be in BOLD since it is a new show. One of the problems that NBC is afraid of is the misconception that "The Tonight Show is moving to 10pm" Failing to identify the Jay Leno Show as a new product, even by accident, is proof that there concerns are reasonable, and puts both Conan and Jay in a potentially bad spot. It is correctly in bold and in the new show list lower on the page. --Boufa (talk) 12:23, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Million Dollar Password cancelled?
- On if they have plans to order more "Million Dollar Password": "Right now we don't have any." http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news.aspx?id=8231 So, it's on the Not Returning list. If it does return, it probably won't have Regis. http://tvseriesfinale.com/tv-show/million-dollar-password-cbs-pulls-game-show-will-it-be-back-will-regis-philbin/ --126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:33, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Is there a page that goes over cable programming?
- Start & stop dates of cable shows are so arbitrary (there are some networks who do not adhere to a fall scheduling meme) that I don't know that it would honestly fall in play... --mhking (talk) 22:18, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
|HBO||Movie||True Blood Sundays (7/14)||Hung Sundays (7/28)||Entourage Sundays (7/12)|
|AMC||Movie||Mad Men Sundays (8/16)|
Cable Grid Idea, continued
TV IV made an attempt: http://tviv.org/Cable_Grid_(USA)
I suggest an extra Monday-Friday grid for the news/talk channels, instead of listing the same shows five times. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:27, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
- I second that, it just get redundant after a while. So, would we just cover the year, and just put the dates the show premieres? Like, for sunday night on HBO, it would say for the 9:30 slot: Flight of the Conchords (1/18)/ True Blood (6/14)/Bored To Death (9/20)?
Encores, Reruns, Repeats?
What do you call them?
JpGrB said: It's an encore presentation. It's not like a concert.
My position: Of course it's not a concert, and that's why we call them reruns. I understand television networks want them to be called Encores, but nobody asked them to air reruns. --Farmer Iggy (talk) 04:18, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
- First of all, that's the format we use, we'd have to change just about every page of "United States network television schedule". And you cannot fairly say "nobody", because are you certain of every person in the United States? --HELLØ ŦHERE 15:19, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
- the problem with "Encore" is teo fold: 1) it sounds like PR or advertizing, 2) there is a cable TV network called "Encore". Call them what they are - "repeat" or "rerun." - Davodd (talk) 00:19, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
