ABC Wednesday - Lost, 8:00 - 9:03

What the fuck? I had noticed earlier this season that this show showed up as being scheduled from 8:00 - 9:01, and also that ER was at least once scheduled from 9:59 - 11:00. But then tonight, this crap was just too much. First, it actually started at about 7:59, and it did last until 9:03, causing me to miss the first few minutes of The West Wing. Also, if I had not been home and recorded it instead, I would have missed the ending. I guess that is the point is they want to fuck up your schedule so you'll just watch Alias instead, and they don't want you to record it and skip the commercials, but this seems like a fucked up way to go about it. It just seems really petty. Does this bother anyone else? Or am I the only one to notice it?

This is bullshit, man, good post! I mean, if you think about it, it's pretty clever on the networks' parts, but it's absolute bullshit. I have nothing to add, just wanted to chime in and say it pisses me off. If I find an original thought, I'll let you know.

It's an attack on all us Tivo owners...preventing us from recording shows on other networks...and it's done purposely...I've got friends that work for the Networks and they confirm this. It sucks, I agree.
