Seinfeld, Friends swapping stations

“Seinfeld” and “Friends” are swapping stations -- not that there’s anything wrong with that. “Seinfeld” moves from Ch. 64 to Ch 19 on March 27. It will air at 6 p.m.
In June, Ch. 19 loses “Friends” reruns to Ch. 64. “Seinfeld” likely will move part of the 7-8 p.m. slot “Friends” is vacating on Ch.19, and a second airing could be scheduled for late night.

Clooney on Barbara Walters
When George Clooney visits with Barbara Walters today (10 p.m., Ch 9), expect her to remind George of his comment the first time she interviewed him (in November 1995, a year into “ER”), when he said he would never marry again. (Clooney married actress Talia Balsam – Martin’s daughter – in 1989, and they divorced in 1993.)
Clooney also tells Walters he doesn’t expect to win any Oscars Sunday. According to ABC, he says: "Paul Giamatti’s been winning an awful lot and he’s really good in the film ("Cinderella Man")... I think Ang Lee will probably win" [director, "Brokeback Mountain"]. Clooney is nominated for best director and writer for "Good Night and Good Luck," and for acting in "Syriana."
Walters’ big pre-Oscar special airs tonight because it’s the last day of sweeps. The Oscars air 8 p.m. Sunday on ABC (Ch 9). Walters also chats with Patrick Dempsey, Matthew McConaughey and Mariah Carey.

Burning question of the day
Hey, XM listeners, did anyone check to see if WLW-AM debuted on XM Channel 173 today as promised? Yeah, I know its a dumb question – you didn’t get satellite radio to listen to a Cincinnati terrestrial station.

Hey John and anyone else who cares.....

WLW is up and running on XM. After I read your story the other day I was finally sold on it. I bought an XM MiFi yesterday and today I listened to the news at noon! Though the MiFi is portable I have it in my car so I had to back out of the garage to listen to it but it sounds outstanding. Driving to work today I listened to it, disappointed Willie wasn't on (wanted to hear the stooge report), but it still sounded good...felt like I was home in Cincinnati and not 500 miles south.

Wow, I guess that's pretty cool for an out-of-towner. It still seems like the opposite of what satellite radio is supposed to be about.

I guess it's nice that our Midwest radio station is the first to go into this groundbreaking territory. You'd kinda expect something like this from one of the NY or Washington radio stations not one emanating from little ole Cincinnati.

I wish they'd teamed up with Sirius instead. I don't know how many times I've been driving and daydreamed right through a weather forecast or wanted to hear a Gilbert Gnarly bit over.

"Pretty cool." Right. Nothing's cooler than WLW.
