I've asked this before, but, just in case anything has changed, I'll ask again:

Is there anybody (else) on here who records Wheel in HD each day?

I need a go-to for when my recording is screwed up, like this past Thursday.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Further to that, is there anybody here who receives Jeopardy! and Wheel over the air (as opposed to cable), and who would allow me to install a DVR as a backup to my system? It would need to be somebody who is seldom, if ever, pre-empted, and where the affiliate does not use a watermarked logo or have a tendency to run scrolls across the screen (weather, news, whatever) and routinely shows the entire show without cutting to something else during the post-game chat.

I am batting about .950 and need to cover those last few percentage points.

Wouldn't access to someone's Slingbox achieve that goal?

Not necessarily. I do not want to watch remotely. I save all of my HD files. Since there is no internet connection (none for home use, anyway) that can carry a broadcast HD signal (~20Mbps), a slingbox cannot stream the shows without downgrading them.

So, I've been out of the loop as far as this is concerned...safe to assume that no one here is posting pre-empted episodes any longer? Just want to know if I can eliminate that possibility from my mind.

CBS has won the bidding to show Thursday night NFL games for the 2014 season from weeks 2-9. If the sports broadcast comes on at 8 eastern then that region should not be affected for airing of J! For pacific, mountain and central zones the possibility arises for game show preemptions?

I'm glad ESPN was not the high bidder since their plan was to show them on ABC where I watch J! through the KGO affiliate. I can't get too happy since the deal seems to be for one year only.

Any boardies going to have 8 weeks of J! disruption? My sympathies.

Week 1 for the NFL has two Monday Night Games. The first one is Jets @ Lions at 7:10 ET and the second one is Raiders @ Rams at 10:20 PT.
These are ESPN games except locally they have to be covered as well. In the Bay Area it's KGO that will show the Raiders game. The season premieres of both J! & Wheel are not on the schedule at all as the normal prime time shows will be bumped to the early Tuesday a.m. hours when sometimes the game shows can be shown.

Any viewers in Detroit, NY or LA want to forward their programming guide to see what is happening in those markets on the 10th? Just curious.

For other football news as a heads up, some of the Thursday night games will now be on Fox instead of CBS.

J! airs on WDIV (NBC) in Detroit and thus will not be pre-empted.

TitanTV shows the Jets/Lions game being simulcast on WPIX in NYC and not WABC, so thankfully no J! preemption here.

Only time the NFL is shown on ABC in New York is ESPN's simulcast of a wild-card game.

And the Denver market airs J! at 6PM Mountain.

In L.A., J! will air at 2:07 A.M. (early Tuesday), as has been KABC's usual modus operandi recently.

Back when this change was first announced at the end of January, OQ noted, based on data I've compiled, that it was likely on net very positive for Jeopardy! fans. The 3,280 meter view shows us that in contrast to CBS with 71 markets and 22.6% of viewers, FOX only airs the show in 13 markets to 6.3 percent of the country.

As mentioned above, Denver is where the impact will be most acutely felt. A pre-game show extending back a half-hour before the game has the potential to impact Cincinnati* and Syracuse. Less likely to be impacted (but still theoretically within range) are five 7 ET/6 CT FOX affiliates: New Orleans; Green Bay; Marquette, MI (adjacent to Green Bay); Baltimore; and Mobile/Pensacola.

* The Bengals host the Ravens in the Week 2 TNF game; it's listed as only on NFL Network, but that doesn't rule out WXIX carrying it locally.
