fantasy network

MSCL may be gone from the tv screen, but there are lots of good (and bad) new productions airing each week. Talk with other MSCL fans about your favorite shows or the shows you hate. Of course you can also discuss TV show DVD releases here.

fantasy network

Post by Natasha (candygirl) » Mar 13th 2003, 1:49 am

No, I'm not talking about some kind of fetish/porn network!

Imagine you are a gazillionaire who can purchase the rights to existing television shows and air them on your own channel. Give us your fantasy lineup - please limit yourself to a 24 hour schedule and no cheating by having a different lineup every day of the week!

My picks (although I should add here that the times are arbitrary and used only to ensure that I didn't exceed the 24 hour limit):

12pm-1 am Buffy
1-2 am Angel
2-3 am Beavis and Butt-head/South Park
3-4 am Daria/King of the Hill
4-5 am Simpsons/Animaniacs
5-6 am Ren & Stimpy/Perfect Strangers
6-7 am Kids Inc/Saved by the Bell
7-8 am Little House on the Prairie
8-9 am Wonder Years/Family Ties
9-10 am Moonlighting
10-11 am Beverly Hills 90210 (my FX Saturday afternoon guilty pleasure)
11-12 pm Dukes of Hazard
12-1 pm Freaks and Geeks/Undeclared
1-2 pm Star Trek: the Next Generation
2-3 pm Seinfeld/Wonder Woman
3-4 pm Punky Brewster/Mickey Mouse Club (pre Britney/Justin/Christina/Keri)
4-5 pm Monkees/Facts of Life (before the store, George Clooney, and Mackenzie Astin)
5-6 pm My So-Called Life
6-7 pm Sopranos
7-8 pm Oz
8-9 pm Six Feet Under
9-10 pm The Shield
10-11 pm Family Guy/Malcolm in the Middle
11pm-12 am Powerpuff Girls/Underdog

I'm sure that once people start posting their lists I will want to throw out my list and start over!

:D

Okay, that's cheating! I only listed multiple shows when it was two half hour shows to fill the hour block (e.g. 2-3 am Beavis and Butt-head/South Park). No fair rotating shows!

The purpose behind my saying you can only have 24 hour schedule is to limit what would you want to watch if you had these time constraints. Sorry if I wasn't clear with that earlier.

Rules? We don't need any stinking rules. I'll look at it again. Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of a whole week's lineup. But I think you meant programming for one day. Anyway, if no news happens that my network deems important to report on, there is no news. If we are programming for one day of the week, what day of the week is it?

Isn't that a line from Mallrats? (It is from one of the Jersey Trilogy movies, I've watched Mallrats more then a 100 times so I'm pretty it must be from mallrats)

OK, if we are programming for one day or our schedule has to be the same for each day, my revised schedule follows.

12:00 to 01:30 AM -- Johnny Carson (if I remember correctly, Carson used to have a 90 minutes show back in the day, if only 60 minutes, add 30 minutes of Local Access TV)
01:30 to 02:30 AM -- David Letterman
02:30 to 03:00 AM -- WKRP in Cincinatti
03:30 to 04:00 AM -- Newsradio
04:00 to 06:00 AM -- Movies (sex, violence, you name it!)
06:00 to 07:00 AM -- Church (denominations change daily)
07:00 to 08:00 AM -- Speed Racer/Superfriends
08:00 to 09:00 AM -- Fishing
09:00 to 10:00 AM -- All in the Family/The Jeffersons
10:00 to 11:00 AM -- Remington Steele
11:00 to 12:00 PM -- The Flintstones/Scooby Doo
12:00 to 01:00 PM -- Simon and Simon
02:00 to 03:00 PM -- Dark Shadows
02:00 to 03:00 PM -- Magnum PI
03:00 to 04:00 PM -- Battlestar Galactica
05:00 to 06:00 PM -- Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
06:00 to 07:00 PM -- MTV Videos (back when MTV played music)

Oooh... neat concept. Can I make up shows?

I'll try an evening block first, just to give it a whirl...

6:00p - The GEA Evening News with Aaron Brown and Anderson Cooper (fiendishly wooed from cable)
7:00p - M*A*S*H
7:30p - Newsradio
8:00p - MSCL
9:00p - Relativity
10:00p - Homicide: Life on the Streets
11:00p - WGEA Evening News (local news)
11:30p - Late Night w/ David Letterman
12:30a - Pretty Damn Late with Eddie Izzard (how cool would THAT be?)
1:30a - OZ
2:30a - The WGEA Late Night Movie (mostly great forgotten movies... like "Bugsy Malone")

Of course, some of my shows only lasted a season, so they'll have to be rotated with other shows. I'll have to work on that part.

I can't believe I didn't put Homicide: Life on the Streets on my schedule. It's one of my all-time favorite shows. Time to have a talk with my program director.
