Dear WB4:
It might be a thought, just for customer service purposes, to provide "Where's My WB" information that is up to date for, oh, THE DAY ONE IS LOOKING AT IT.

I really don't have words to describe my complete lack-of-impressedness with the continued pre-emption of primetime programming for college and Pacers basketball, but I've grown painfully used to the fact that local sports take precedence over... pardon the sarcasm -- my mood is less than pleasant -- acting like a real network. But the sight of the WB4 homepage with "Smallville! 8, 7 central! Angel! 9, 8 central!" right next to "College Basketball! 8 pm!" right next to "Primetime shows may be pre-empted by Pacers basketball; click here to find out when they will be shown" leading to a page that only goes up to February 28th? The professionalism never ceases to astound me. I'm almost happy that Angel has been cancelled [from your network], if only because I won't have to face the annual frustration of having to guess whether I'll get to see (and discuss) my favorite program with fellow viewers online as it broadcasts, or whether I'll have to wait 3 hours to 3 days to do so.

Yes, I sent it.

Yes, I have no [censored]-ing idea when I'll get to see tonight's Angel ep.

ETA: Ah. Saturday. Mind you I only know this by having checked Saturday's schedule based on previous experience. So, they know far enough ahead to list the pre-empted shows on Saturday's schedule, but they're still showing them on the main page as "Here's the promo. But they mght be pre-empted" and they haven't actually updated the "So where's my pre-empted show now" page. Classy, and organized.

What I love (love as in hate with a firey passion, as I do all WB executives, who suck and should have red hot pokers shoved up their arses...er, not that I'm bitter.) is when the network runs 'next on an all new Angel' promos up until 8:59, then *bloop* basketball.

We get the ep Saturday night here too. Luckily I actually knew a week in advance this was happening for once and had a friend come over and start the download for me. I heart my cable modem.

I sympathize in the worst way. (((hugs)))

At least my WB affiliate has been pretty good about not doing the false advertising thing on the air, though their website obviously sucks. They've been, up til last night, pretty good this season about showing Smallville and Angel on the same night, after the game, instead of pre-empting til Saturday, too.
