A Letter to a Local Station

ugly-betty1Dear CityTV,

I have grown up watching great American television on your station.  For many years it was my staple channel until a few years ago when you gave up showing my favorite Thursday night pairing back to back.  Smallville leads into Supernatural.  Then you moved Smallville over to your sister station for a new up and coming show called Ugly Betty.  I from then on boycotted the show because you broke up my pairing.  Not long after that you dropped Supernatural for a better fitting combo with 30 Rock.  I guess if you’re going to be stupid, you might as well be smart about it.

I wrote you a letter at the time in which you told me to suck it up and watch the A channel.  Really what this letter is all about is the fact that Ugly Betty is now getting the back burner until June and much like say Eli Stone and Pushing Daisies wont be around for sweeps and maybe left citypulseout to pasture.  All the while Smallville and Supernatural are pushing on with their best ratings in years.   Both shows are in full negotiation to return next year while Betty is being ignored for shows like “In the Motherhood” and “Samantha Who”  neither of which you own airing rights to.  Hmm.

At current state, you’re being out programmed by SunTV.  Not even your sweet car crashing through the wall can save you now.
