Local and national television news and opinion from Colorado Springs Gazette TV writer Andy Wineke
The producers of ABC's "Supernanny" are in town this week casting for a new show dubbed "The World's Strictest Parents." They're looking for teens needing a firm hand and parents who can kick butt and take names.
I haven't jumped to Twitter because I figure I'd have to post the same content twice, but if there are a few readers already on Twitter who prefer to get local TV updates in that format, it might be worthwhile. Most of these posts are already pretty short, except when I go off on a rant...
Well, the timing is kinda funny. They’re probably cursing every dime they spend fixing the old transmitter, too:
A commenter mentioned that KKTV registered with the FCC to go digital on Feb. 17, instead of waiting 'til June 12.
If you're not following the minutae of the DTV transition delay, this may seem like an "uh duh" statement, but in many places, possibly including Denver, one or more TV stations plans to shut down their analog transmitters on Feb. 17 as originally scheduled.
The House passed the DTV delay bill today. No additional money for converter boxes, interestingly. But hey, at least the nation’s foot-draggers will have four months to save their pennies for the box.
It should move out of committee today.
