Boy, I wish I could post about the Reaper finale that aired last night. Unfortunately, here in Chicago it was preempted by a Cubs game and aired at 11:30, instead of 8:00.

T.

F?!

Who did Kevin Smith piss off to have his show so mishandled? I've never seen a network push a show that normally airs in prime time to the middle of the night. I know it's just our area that got hosed, but I'd think that WGN is a pretty major affiliate. If it was gonna cause a conflict in such a sizable market, I wish they'd've pushed the finale to a clear day.

WGN has been preempting stuff for Cubs games since you were knee-high to a meeple, my boy! I'm going to guess it's in their broadcasting agreement, and not a "producer decision." Plus, Cubs broadcasts are probably the highest-rated programs WGN airs. Certainly well above the WB's (or whatever they are these days) output. So, it's pretty much a no-brainer for them.

Besides, the Cubs are great this season. Take that, Cards!

(well, all Cards except Pujols, who's on my fantasy team)

According to Wikipedia, "Kevin Smith directed the pilot, and is credited as a creative consultant for the series", so I certainly wouldn't call it his show.

Sucks that it got delayed in your area, but at least you got to see it, right? I figure that anyone who was going to watch it to begin with would have waited til 11:30, given that it was the season finale.

Aw, I'm an "early-to-bed, early-to-rise" type. I'm in bed by ten most nights. Since game night is tonight, I won't see it until Thursday...

As for WGN preempting stuff for baseball, I guess I just don't watch the channel enough to have seen it. I guess my disdain for the Cubs informs my disappointment at the preemption. I live a couple of miles north of Wrigley Field on Clark Street, and I hate the difficulties in traversing the city 'cos of streets clogged with Trixies and suburbanites (and they close the Taco Bell drive-thru on Addison to make more parking! Grr!). I wish they'd just move the field to Naperville so the fans wouldn't have to drive so far and harsh my mellow. 'Cos that's what it's all about, right? My mellow?

At least it doesn't look like we'll get the Olympics. That woulda been a nightmare.

Hey, I just wanted to 'say' that I likes your 'avatar' with "Snuffy Smith & ole Sparkplug!" cool
When's old "Barney Google" gonna make an 'appearance'?

EDIT: corrected spelling, and adding this:
His "googly" googoo were 'closed', and I figured the "horse" had eaten his HAT! robot
