    I'm pissed. I planned on watching Standoff and House tonight then going to bed. Mother%^&%ers are showing a goddamn Univ. of Kentucky game on TV. I don't give a #$% about college basketball. The game is being aired unannounced. Local TV guide shows Standoff then House. I turned on waiting for Standoff and this stupid game comes on. WTF?? I checked the website and Apparently House will air at it's normal time (thank god) then their news, then Standoff. I have to tape Standoff to see it. The dicks ruined my evening I had planned.

    Yeah, it's never good when my House viewing gets messed up.

    It's not a rerun at all, it's another brand new episode.

    I watch both shows too and neither of them are new until January. Most shows on TV are like that now, i.e. heroes.

    This is the last week of New House.

    It is a new episode ofStandoff too. Not sure if this is the last new one till Jan. Think Justice this week is new as well. Not sure if it is the last new one of the year either,

    Heroes, Jericho, Lost, and several others are reruns (or other shows) till January or Feburary.

    And you live in what state?

    Get out of my state you... you... basketball-hater-person.

    I only like watching UK lose, so I can understand not wanting to see the game if they were winning.

    I hate when they do that.

    Or say the previously planned programs will be aired after the game. Then the game ends and the news comes on and never get to see the damn show

    I feel for you. That's the same reason I consider Basketball one of my top four hated sports.(what I call the four main evils) It's number three on the list actually tied with number 2 Baseball. Football number one for causing me to miss half of the 100th episode of Star Trek Deep Space Nine when it first aired.

    I don't supose anyone has any mofia connections so we can make a deal with them to have some fingers broken or something whenever a good show gets preempted by sports? Surely me and Rattrap aren't the only ones tired this sort of thing happening.

    No, you're probably not the only ones. But if you were a football or basketball fan, and the end of the game got cut off so Fox could air a rerun (or a sci-fi show with limited appeal), you probably wouldn't be happy, eiuther. And UK Basketball probably brings in more advertising dollars, at least in that part of the country. I've learned my lesson, though. I set my DVR to record the normal ime plus one hour if I think there are sports events that might delay my viewing. I'm hoping the DVR technology gets to the point where it'll automatically record the show no matter when it begins.

    -Tony!

    But the thing is I checked the local TV listings, Yahoo's TV Guide, The guide on my digital cable, etc and ALL showed Standoff at 7PM and House at 8PM (I'm on central time). NONE said anything about a ballgame. None. How are you supposed to get viewers for the ball game if you don't have anyway of knowing about it?
