TV Junkie: The CW Pulls the Plug on Sundays

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


Dear CW fans, apparently none of you are watching the network on Sundays so management is yanking all of it's original content from that night ("In Harm's Way", "Valentine", "Easy Money", etc. - you know, the shows you've never heard of) and replacing them with repeats of "Jericho" and "The Drew Carey Show" which will somehow result in higher ratings(?) because as we all know, we don't get enough rerun content today, especially of shows that ended years ago.

The TV Junkie Plan: "Ugly Betty", "The Office", "30 Rock", "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" (season finale!!), "The Sarah Silverman Program", Letterman (Colbert!).

What're you watching and why?
