Late night TV watching

    For late night TV dwellers, what programs do you watch in the early morning hours?

    I'm a Nick-at-Nite fan, although they've been showing too much Fresh Prince lately. I'm hoping they bring back Newsradio and/or The Wonder Years. Or maybe I should just read a book.

    Why, VH-1 Classic, of course.

    Although now they usually air shitty VH-1 movies or really lousy obscure videos. Enjoying a rare burst of sunshine right now with Metal Mania. Hey, it's still my birthday in American Samoa! The Classic is giving me a present! :D

    If the Classic is letting me down I can usually find something on one of the movie channels.
  3. Read a book, Ebby...it seems to help me wind down a little bit better than watching TV. Right now I'm reading 1776. I highly recommend it. Or the Plot Against America is a good one too.

    There's usually some good sit-com on some station when I get home. Last year or two, it's been "Just Shoot Me" and "Drew Carey" back-to-back on Philadelphia's Channel 17.

    M*A*S*H block on Hallmark from 11 p.m.-1 a.m. (they had the Henry's Plane Goes Down episode on Thursday night/Friday morning), then I flip to Weatherscan (think a 24-hour local forecast from the Weather Channel) hoping the music will soothe me to sleep. If I'm still up at 2, over to Adult Swim for Futurama-Futurama-Family Guy.

    Favorite late night block is TBS' Friday night/Saturday morning: Family Guy (not the newer, gayer episodes), Futurama, The Oblongs and the underrated Mission Hill.

    That 2-4 block is often when I'll catch up on some college football team I haven't seen yet, with a replay either on ESPN or one of the Fox Sports networks.

    That's why Tivo was invented...

    Well, yeah, that too.

    Thing is, the first-run viewing seasons are so short nowadays that you spend nine months of a year trying to find something else.

    I'm another one for the MASH reruns on Hallmark. I'm getting a new kick out of the Col. Flagg episodes, though I've seen them all.

    Also, Fox Movie Channel always has old movies. Matter of fact, just this morning I saw The Grapes of Wrath with Henry Fonda.

    Sadly, I think this board has somewhat ruined M*A*S*H-watching for me.

    Now, whenever I watch it, I'm much more cognizant of the sermonizing of the later episodes. I just took it in before everyone began talking about it on here.

    Same here. ... It seems ESPN doesn't air as many NFL films late at night that it used to. I'm guessing the NFL keeps that stuff on its own network nowadays.

    I've allowed cognitive dissonance to take the lead and have compartimentalized M*A*S*H into two distinct series: M*A*S*H, which ended when Henry died and Trapper left offscreen, and Alan Alda Hates The War, which started when Hawkeye picked up B.J. from the airstrip. There's still plenty of good moments and episodes in the latter "series", but the Trapper/Blake for B.J./Potter trade changed the dynamics of the show so much that it's almost unfair to compare the two.
