Title: Fictitious TWC Programming Schedule
Post by: news727 on May 24, 2019, 03:29:14 AM
I just found out recently that there's a growing number of people want TWC to return to live programming, more weather, less long-form stuff, etc.

So I figured out the best way is to let you create your own weekly schedule for the channel. Now-defunct shows (for instance Weekend Now, Beyond the Forecast and Day Planner) are also accepted.

Here's roughly my personal schedule (with an increase in live programming, especially on weekends):

Monday-Friday:
4:00am-6:00am:  Weather Center Live
6:00am-10:00am:  AMHQ
10:00am-5:00pm:  Weather Center Live
5:00pm-8:00pm:  Weather Underground
8:00pm-1:00am:  Weather Center Live

Saturday and Sunday:
6:00am-9:00am:  AMHQ
9:00am-1:00pm:  Weekend Recharge
1:00pm-8:00pm:  Weather Center Live
11:00pm-2:00am (maybe?):  Weather Center Live (for West Coast primetime)

During severe weather WCL would be called "Weather Center Live: X Central" in the electronic program listings (X is the appropriate event, like hurricane, tornado and severe storm).

That's my idea. What're yours?

This is what I came up with and posted on my Facebook profile back on November 11, 2017..

THE WEATHER CHANNEL SCHEDULE IDEA

This is an idea I came up with, a few notes first:
* I originally came up with a "WU Late Night" for 11pm-2am, but bumped it an hour earlier and renamed it "Weather Center Geeks" for some more variety
* "Reality / Wx Geeks" indicates either Reality Programming or Wx Geeks, depending on the day - which allows variation and/or new premieres as needed
* This would drop the amount of reality programming down to 2 hours on weekdays, and 3 hours on weekends
* Local on the 8's segments would occur twice every hour, all day
** Taking cues from Weather Underground and Reality Programming blocks
** Would become 2 minutes long again
** Shifted to :28 and :58 past the hour

Mon-Fri
1am-4am Weather Center Night
4am-5am Reality Programming
5am-6am AMHQ Early
6am-9am AMHQ
9am-12pm Weather Center Morning
12pm-3pm Weather Center Afternoon
3pm-6pm Weather Center Evening
6pm-9pm Weather Underground
9pm-10pm Reality / Wx Geeks
10pm-1am Weather Center Geeks

Sat-Sun
1am-4am Weather Center Night
4am-6am Reality Programming
6am-9am AMHQ Weekend
9am-12pm Weekend Recharge
12pm-3pm Weather Center Weekend
3pm-6pm Weather Center Weekend
6pm-9pm WU Weekend
9pm-10pm Reality / Wx Geeks
10pm-1am Weather Center Geeks
