Anyone know what the deal is with the new tnn in Canada? It seems to have a somewhat different schedule but for no reason that makes sense. For example in the mornings we get VIP at 9 just like in the US, but then it continues until 12 when the promos say Baywatch will be on next.
That's actually somethign I'm greatful for since VIP rocks, I'm just curious what the deal is.

Also, do you folks in the states get absolutly no commercials and only new TNN spots? For a while it seemed like they played a lot of them over and over, but then i started paying attention and there really are no non promo commercials. What's up with that?

Programming may be different because of international rights (Canadian telecasters holding the rights to a show rather than TNN, like TSN broadcasting Raw) or because of CRTC restrictions as to what can air, or if a certain percentage must be Canadian in origin, a rule I don't think would apply here but I don't know because I'm not from Canada; someone else could probably help there. Nice run-on sentence there.

As for the non-commercial aspect, I would doubt there's a legal reason. Viacom may just have chosen not to sell the network there, at least not yet. They started TV Land like that, allowing it to gain a foothold before they added commercials; it was just promos to start with.

Are you talking about the commercials with the celebrities talking about The New TNN?

Cause if you are, aside from Austin saying "Ren and Stimpy", there's no mention of WWE in those commercials.

I know that back when Fuse was Much Music down here, all we got were local ads during ad breaks. Superannoying... but then they changed everything and started to suck. Now they're not so bad, but they just aren't Much Music.

TNN Canada also doesn't have the Canadian rights to RAW, which is no problem except when TSN is showing a hockey game or something on Monday nights. Then I'm sitting there suffering through something like St. Louis and Vancouver and having to wait until the next day to see wrestling aired.

Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And ye...ye..yet you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!

TNN Canada also doesn't show Baywatch. I know, I know, but David Hasslehoff, come on, you know you like his sweaty grey chest hair too.

Of all the chests on Baywatch, you're interested in Hasselhoff's?

Any new news on this Spike TV thing, btw?

We can't forget about the prerequesit Roger or SHaw commercials, and their sob story "This man's stealing cable" commercials.

I remember one thing I could NOT stand when living in TOronto: The Rogers noise that aired after each and every one of their commercials. Arrrrrrg. IT's almost as annoying as the intel thing.

Oh geez, we get those same kinds of ads. Except they look like they were made in 1987. And the ones where they spoof the DirecTV installers? SucksuckSUCK. Who complains "about all the hassles"? It's like they picked a few words to sum up every single negative thing they could find about TV on the technical end. -_-

I missed the first half hour watching the 9/11 special, so if anybody knows when this will be rebroadcast, I would appreciate knowing the time, date, and channel. High Points for me: * The former Isaac Yankem D.D.S.
