    Why in the world cant WRAL put the CBS line up on 5.2 for folks that just of regular tv, no dish, no cable. It just makes sense.

    thanks WRAL for showing the basketball games, as someone who does't have cable or dish, its great to see college basketball on free tv

    Get an antenna and watch CBS on WNCT. Very simple and inexpensive.

    I concur. Put the ball games somewhere else and let those of us who are NOT NC basketball fans watch some of our fave shows. I am tired of WRAL pre-empting the Tues night lineup. It's the only night I watch regular programming and I am sick of having to put up with Roy and b-ball. Like many others, I do not have a DVR to record these shows.

    I'm a low tech person with no recording capability. So I have to miss my shows because of basketball? And no, I'm not up between 1-4 to watch them when they're offered. There should be equal consideration given to those of us who want to watch what the network schedules! I agree with previous posters, put the GAME somewhere else because it's the GAME that is the problem, not the regular schedule. Maybe bump Glee on Fox 50?!!!

    Then there are those of us who just don't want to watch Carolina play and Roy whine.
