WRAL TV

Wednesday programming changes

Posted February 8, 2011

The Battle of the Blues airs Wednesday night on WRAL, interrupting regular programming.

The ACC basketball game, North Carolina at Duke, is scheduled from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

"Criminal Minds" will air on WRAL at 2 a.m. "Blue Bloods" will air at 3 a.m.

An extended 11 p.m. newscast will follow the game.

Viewers should record from 2 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. to ensure they get both programs in their entirety. The shows may get pushed back if the basketball game or newscast runs over.

    BY PRE-EMPTING ALL OF THE GOOD CBS SHOWS (NCIS, NCIS LA, THE GOOD WIFE, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI) FOR SEVERAL MONTHS EACH AND EVERY YEAR, THEN CLAIMING THAT THEY SHOW THEM LATER, WRAL ONLY CATERS TO THE RICH WHO CAN AFFORD A DVR. WHAT ABOUT US POOR FOLKS WHO CAN'T AFFORD A DVR OR AN INTERNET CONNECTION AND HAVE TO GO TO WORK IN THE MORNING SO WE CAN'T STAY UP ALL NIGHT TO WATCH THESE SHOWS. WRAL SHOULD GIVE UP ITS CBS AFFILIATION TO ANOTHER LOCAL STATION. IT IS SIMPLY FALSE ADVERTISING TO CLAIM THAT THEY ARE A CBS AFFILIATE AND TO CLAIM THAT THEY DON'T REPRESENT ONLY THE RICH OF THE RALEIGH AREA.

    luv2surffish2, you're in ACC country down there, that's the way it is and I bet most of the people down there love that WRAL is showing the game. Living in Northern Virginia now I miss a lot of the UNC, NC State, Duke and Wake Forest games on network TV and that's not fun.

    Duke vs Chapel Hill... Classic ballgame. If you don't like it take your Yankee self home. Battle of the Blues... Welcome to North Carolina. And, everybody doesn't have Cable TV, so thank you WRAL for broadcasting the games!
