...Late night Saturday and WFMY TV2 is showing CSI:New York and that is one of my favorite non-sports programs. Stella and Mac make a good team. Well, this CSI is going head-to-head with Saturday Night Live and MAD TV and Stella is winning that war in an episode that I had not previously seen.
One of the guys on the CSI:New York team, well his brother Louie is involved with some guys that pulled a Jimmy Hoffa on some kid and just as Louie gets beat up for talking to his brother, who is now a cop with the CSI: New York team, well Louie gets beat within and inch of his life and the scene ends just as Louie is headed to the hospital.
They cut to a commercial and when they come back they(TV2’s board operators) show the same scene all over again. They run the same entire scene again and even though it’s not bad having to see Stella again, Louie gets his but kicked again and he’s headed off to the hospital again and they cut to the same commercials again at the end of the scene we had just watched all over again and when they return from commercial the second time they are running the credits for the show. IT’S OVER!!!!!
It’s 12:30 am on a show that began at 11:30 pm and we don’t have a clue of what happened and how that show ended and thanks to WFMY Channel 2 we probably never will. That stinks….Aren’t their people watching????? Are the board operators sleep walking?????
How did that show end? I have seen this happen before and every time I do, I think this can never happen again.
Did anyone else notice this debacle?????? Come on Channel 2, why can’t you get it right??????
I hate to say it, but Andy makes a good point, I've been noticing a lot of "blips" and "jumps" and "misfired graphics" over at CBS-2 lately.
I know you folks over at Gannett are having issues, but WUSA-9 (the Gannett-owned CBS affiliate in Washington DC) runs a lot more smooth, and a lot more like an O&O (owned-and-operated) station.
