    NBC: Pax 'Abandoning' Net Programming

    By John M. Higgins -- Broadcasting & Cable, 4/21/2005 5:12:00 PM

    Ailing Pax TV will virtually cease entertainment programming and instead load its schedule with infomercials, which is drawing protests from 32%-owner NBC Universal.

    [MORE]


No more SUPERMARKET SWEEP?!?

RPW available only with a FSN LOGO IN THE CORNER?!?

IT'S AN OUTRAGE

AMEX:PAX closed at 1.13, up two cents - is NOW the time to buy? (If NBC hasn't bought them by now, they probably ain't gonna do it until they go even lower...right?) Also...stocks still trade on the AMEX? Holy cow

"Supermarket Sweep" was the only thing I watched on that channel, and that was years ago.

I guess we learned one thing from this-showing repeats of "Diagnosis Murder" can only get you so far as a network.

Damnit ... my wife and I watch 'Pyramid' & 'Family Feud' every stinking day ... Guess it's back to the Seinfeld repeats.

So does this mean that Billy Ray Cyrus will go back to making music?!?!?!? ...

In Mound City (actually Mt. Vernon, IL, to be precise - it IS an hour and a half east of StL) we lost Pax a year or so ago when the owner (Equity?) switched its affils from Pax to Daystar infomercials and indy pro wrestling. It took me six months to notice, and apparently Pax six more months to catch up.

I thought that DOC ended it's run last year. It's available on syndication here in Canada, though...on CH and Showcase.

We don't get PAX here in Canada, but I always liked their family friendly programming.

Wasn't PAX going to run some sort of amateur style wrestling federation? I was kind of looking forward to that. Ah, well...

That was ... well, is ... RPW, mentioned above. As far as I know, it's independent of PAX, although it can't help them to have their TV money cut off this early in their existence.

I will personally match whatever PAX is paying him to prevent that. Us country fans get enough of a bad rap without him coming back.
