Sounds pretty good but where is Seinfeld?

Hopefully they just forgot to put it in.

Sounds pretty good all up though.

What about during the day? Will it be 24 hours? I certainly hope so. I would like to see Comedy repeats during the day or something.

What happens when they run out of these shows though? It kinda worries me a little, hopefully they can also buy Smallville back to show.

Sounds a little bit better than ONE though. Wheres the creativity in that?

At least its going to be available at the same time regionally! Has a good looking line up there! Bounty Hunter and CSI NY have my attention. :)

W-o-w, Channel 9 seem to be devoting themselves to the one age group they so adamantly abused for so long. Like Mister at the end of The Color Purple. :)

I like what they are doing with their 2nd channel I'll admit... actually I think it would offer more stuff that I like than their regular channel!!! And I'm thirty-friggin-five!!! :lol:

Sounds good tho... actually a good HD channel to get.
