Tall Stacks TV
This just in… Well, almost. At Thursday afternoon, WLWT (Ch 5) emailed me to say that the station started doing nightly Tall Stacks specials at on Wednesday, when Tall Stacks opened. Obviously, it was too late to make our Wednesday or Thursday TV grids, or the TV Week book published last Sunday.
The email said that the 30-minute Weds-Fri shows, and the Saturday show from News 5, will "preview of each night’s entertainment at Tall Stacks 2007."
So that means the News 5 information was not First, Fast or Accurate.
Did you watch "Survivor" last night? See the Tide commercial? P&G, a charter "Survivor" advertisor since 2000 that pulled out of last month in the furor over the tribes being divided along racial lines, is back on the show. BTW: "Survivor" continues to be a Top 10 (No. 6) this fall.
Moving Heaven and killing Kidnapped?
Only three weeks into the season, and CW, CBS and NBC have pulled switcheroos.
--Stick a fork in "Kidnapped?" NBC just moved it from Wednesday to 9 p.m. Saturday -- when nobody watches TV . "Dateline NBC" will air at 9 p.m. Wednesday against "Lost." Not a good sign for "Kidnapped" fans.
--"7th Heaven" and "Runaway" move to Sundays, effective immediately. The CW (and old UPN) comedy lineup returns to Monday starting tonight with "Everybody Hates Chris" (8 pm), followed by "All of Us," "Girlfriends" and "The Game." "7th Heaven” airs next at Oct. 15.
--CBS has flip-flopped "How I Met Your Mother" (to 8 from Monday) with "The Class" (to ) effective Monday.
One more fall TV note: NBC has ordered a full season of "Heroes," tied with "House" at No. 21 this season.
--Congratulations to WARM98, named "station of the year" by Radio & Records. It was the top adult contemporary station for markets No. 26-100.
--No word yet on what will happen on FM 96.5. Cumulus has been simulcasting the country STAR on 95.5 and 94.9 since MOJO moved to 100.3 two weeks ago. STAR will stay on 94.9, which has a better signal in
