Well, apparently the fact that I've lurked for so long and not posted prohibits me from having an open thread or from posting links. Nonetheless, I promised a copy of the letter I sent to complain to UPN and ask you to do likewise. Their website is simply UPN (followed by the appropriate punctuation that I can't post :phhht ). Click on Miriam, click on Contact the Show. Here's what I wrote:
Why IN THE WORLD did you put Amish in the City on Tuesday night? We have been watching it for some 6 weeks with Wednesday night airs and Friday night re-runs, and we always watch the re-run night. So we knew this was finale week and got so excited...to find out at 9 PM on Tuesday that we had just missed the whole freaking thing. I understand that Wed night is important in the programming world, but why is there no Friday re-run? OR ANY RE-RUN? You just blew off on the climax of your entire show?! That is pretty lame. I'll tell you, there are a whole lot of pissed off people out here. Apparently you made the populace choose between it and another favorite TV show, Amazing Race. And plenty of people are ranting on forums across the Internet because they didn't get the entire show for various other reasons, and all anyone wants to know is WHEN IS THE RE-RUN? And the answer is that UPN is too concerned about its pathetic Veronica Mars show (which has a good story line but based on the commercials really poor acting so it isn't going to go anywhere) to care about the people wanting to know the end result; UPN has already moved on to its next money-grubbing enterprise to waste its time on catering to the viewers. So now you have a whole lot of people WANTING to watch your station asking you to play what they had already come to expect and you put some crap show in its place on not one occasion, but TWO, and are going to have no viewers instead when they turn off the tube and go to the forums to rant about Amish in the City not being where it was supposed to be. And this is only an hour after the Amish in the City finale aired. I want to know when the re-run will be aired.
