We love Thursday night television.Â WifeGeeding and I were pretty excited to see new episodes of Survivor, 30 Rock, The Office, and CSI.Â One of the perks of owning a DVR is the ability to record two shows at once.Â However, there is a massive hail storm and possible tornado coming our way and the meteorologists on all the major networks have been on television for the past three hours without one commercial break.
I understand the need of warning the public, but what really irks me is that they haven’t told us when our shows will air.Â A lot of times when this happens they tell us to set our DVR’s to record such-and-such show at two in the morning or whatever, either on the crawl or verbally.Â Since they failed at this, I decided to check out their websites.
Bravo to our CBS affiliate for telling us when Survivor will air.
Boooooooooooooooo to our NBC affiliate.Â They only tell us we can watch the shows we missed due to weather on Hulu.com.Â Watching TV on the PC is OK, but come on, we prefer to watch it together in the living on the big screen.
To be fair I checked out the ABC affiliate’s website and they aren’t providing any info on the shows we are missing.Â Good thing Lost is a rerun.Â Fox is in the same camp as ABC and NBC.
I hate it when this happens. It’s like no channel wants to be the first to quit storm reporting. My cable went out right at elimination on Survivor so I don’t know who got axed. I could watch Surviver on 10 out of Waco.
