Thank you for your comment regarding last night’s preemption of ABC’s “The Middle.” We appreciate your enjoyment in “The Middle” and understand your frustration when you tuned in and it didn’t air.
At the time we scheduled the Channel 2 special, “The Middle” was scheduled as a repeat episode. Once ABC switched to a new episode, our local special had been highly publicized including listings in the television guide services and we felt compelled to stick with our plan.
As we do with most all our local specials, we announced the delayed airing of last night’s episode of “The Middle” at 2:05 a.m. so viewers like you could record it. If you didn’t record it, you can watch it online at abc.com
Channel 2 has a long and proud tradition of producing local specials of significance that give a better understanding of our communities, our challenges and of some of the great aspects of living in North Georgia. We always seek out nights in which ABC is airing reruns for our “first run” local specials. As a courtesy notice, we are planning to preempt repeat broadcasts of “The Middle” for the next two Wednesday nights. Next week, “Georgia’s Hidden Treasures: The Holiday Edition” airs at 8 p.m.
Again, thanks for your comment. We appreciate your perspective and value you as a viewer of Channel 2 WSB-TV.
