How the hell am I supposed to get my Moe fix?

Columbus's daily "Simpsons" block: 5-6 pm.
Richmond's daily "Simpsons" block: 11:30 pm.

Frustrating. And when (if) I get a real job: very frustrating.

Dude. There must be something seriously wrong with Virginians. You should've moved westward, where we have differential feed options for our satelite subscriptions.

"Simpson" on (virtual) demand. Must be nice. Me, I have to suffer through "My Wife and Kids" and "Bernie Mac" at the time I'm normally accustomed to watch my favorite Springfieldiens.

at least it's not northeastern oklahoma, where - when i visit my folks, i get none of that in syndi. i think it's all Jeff Foxworthy, all the time.

i'm liking "my wife and kids", but it's no classic simpsons.

in chicago, we got three episodes a day, and then they moved the earliest (5) aside to make room for another hilarious installment of 'yes, dear.' ha-ha. (by the way, i'm only speaking of free tv syndication)

they're supposed to bring the Simpsons to thrice daily. and w/o a moment to spare.

micah, you need to step up your TiVO game. Either that or download all the seasons from tha interweb pirates. relying on network television to provide a program that has been running a decade strong...weak.

jasdye - I'm jealous (of your Chicago TV schedule, not the Oklahoma one).

THSE - I have all of the DVD season sets they've put out thus far, but it's just something about a random episode being "on" at any given time that will get me to watch (The "Ocean's Elven" Syndrome).

I had a DVR in Columbus. I'm undergoing DTs right now (especially since my VCR ate a tape today; guess I can catch repeats of Friday's "Colbert Report" and "The Soup" sometime).

i'm sure there's enough foxworthy in VA to spare.

You pay for DVD's? Like cash money? Wow...

I'm sorry to hear that you've been separated from your DVR. Must be like having to take public transportation after you've had a chauffeur.

jasdye - Too true (sadly).

THSE - It's worse than the flights I've been on after going first class. I've given up watching shows I normally DVRed due to conflicts and such ("Commander in Chief", "Everybody Hates Chris", "Boston Legal", etc.). It has brought my TV viewing way down, so I guess it's not all bad.
