pre-empting shows

I know it is common to pre-empt shows during pledging, but it would be helpful if the pre-empted show was available to watch later that same day (or night). This Old House is usually shown on Sundays at 5pm, except today because of pledging, it is not. It is not on any time later today or tonight or this week. So, I haved missed this episode with no way to catch it again before reruns start. It would be helpful if, during pledging, regular shows like this were shown maybe sometime over the nighttime hours so those of us who were expecting it at it's regular time can record it.


This Old House - Several Repeats

Thank you so much for writing to us regarding This Old House. Thank you also for understanding how difficult our pledge drives can be to schedule!

Alas, the only one of 8 broadcasts that was pre-empted for the episode you sought was the one for which you tuned in! Below is a list of all the weekly airdates and airtimes for This Old House, Ask This Old House, and This Old House Hour:

The Create channel (Digital 21.3 / Cable 433) broadcasts This Old House 8 days a week on the following days and times:

- Mondays at 10:30 am, 4:30 pm, and 10:30 pm.
- Tuesdays at 4:30 am.
- Fridays at 10:30 am, 4:30 pm, and 10:30 pm.
- Saturdays at 4:30 am.

WXXI-TV/HD typically airs This Old House Hour (both This Old House & Ask This Old House combined) on:

- Thursdays at 8:00 pm.

WXXI-TV/HD (Digital 21.1 / 11 & 1011) also typically airs This Old House & Ask This Old House back-to-back two times on the weekend as follows:

- Saturdays at 10:00 am.
- Sundays at 5:00 pm.

Occasionally, 1 or 2 of the 3 air times of a particular episode on WXXI-TV/HD can be pre-empted, but the Noon broadcast on Saturdays is the most consistent (only pre-empted once in the last 12 months). I hope this information helps! Please give us a call if you have any more inquiries regarding this or any other WXXI Programming.
