So many different preferences, you aren't going to please everybody. Always thought Poppy Montgomery was quite forgettable but somebody up there liked her. Really liked Medium, despite the bed gimmick, great plots, great family. Profiler was great at the time but looks quite dated today. And thanks for Crossing Jordan. Please avoid too many syrupy dramas, notice you haven't added Ghost Whisperer yet. Thank you. Great idea for a new channel but my husband I know will not be watching.

I really like the fact that you added Unforgettable and Strong Medicine. I like the fact that you cut Dr. Quinn never did enjoy that show. Thanks

Please give EARLY EDITION a better 2-hour time slot, specifically NOT during the middle of the night.
I appreciate this show now a lot more than I did when it originally aired. The stories are interesting and sometimes gripping, the acting is so much more nuanced and skillful than I realized back then, and the characters are fully formed (e.g., Gary, his parents, Crumb, Marissa, to name just a few). I've ended up caring about them.
Mornings, afternoons, evenings or even early late night would work better for so many people with "normal" schedules. Please give Early Edition better time slots!

Sure hope this lineup is a test run would actually love to see Early Edition and Touched by an Angel come on at better times

Why cut Touched By an Angel? My wife and I love that show, and three episodes back to back are great, especially when there is a two-part episode. If you need to cut shows, why not cut Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman? That show wasn't as popular in any way as Touched By an Angel, so why cut Touched By an Angel?
And a few of the new shows you are bringing on weren't popular at all either. You need to start listening to your viewers due to the fact that Start TV is a new channel or you will end up losing them. Please bring Touched By an Angel back to three back to back episodes.

Don't like that Crossing Jordan is cutting into my Cold Case time.

I wish you'd drop Profiler and forget about adding Unforgettable, which was most forgettable the first time around -- or at least put Unforgettable and Profiler during the middle of the night. Just a suggestion for when you work out the scheduling kinks. 😊

We love Touched by an Angel and Dr. Quinn Medicine Women can't you keep the same morning to 2:00 P.M. schedule and fit in the "new" shows in the evening? And we love Medium and Cold Case and The Closer. I thought the old schedule was just fine and that you would just do two episodes instead of three of each but keep the same schedule.

I love your channel but.....HATE the new schedule! Why did you have to mess up a good thing?
DeeJayOleson 22 days ago
I love your channel. Thank you!!!
One suggestion, do NOT split up the episodes of Profiler, or any other show. Show them back to back...It helps with continuity. It shouldn’t be that hard to keep the shows you have and move them so Profiler is not on with a huge separation. It’s great to show multiple episodes, just not separated.
Thank you

I can't believe they changed the hours for Dr Quinn so now I won't be able to see it anymore and really liked watching that show I will have to find a new station to watch for 8 to 11 before I go to work now

There's a lot of complaints about the lineup and scheduling (it's impossible to please everybody), I'm just glad this channel even exists!!! So many different emotions have surfaced from revisiting these shows... takes me down memory lane and makes me take a hard look at the circumstances, then and now (especially watching Dr. Quinn as an adult, seeing with different eyes how racial difficulties were handled). I'm just waiting for the backlash against all this women power!

Looked to see DR QUINN, MEDIUM, Early Edition to name a few. SO HAPPY WHEN I found START TV with some some of my favorite. HAppy STRONG MEDICINE is added. But why are the schedule so awful. I mean Even worse than awful. DR QUINN runs 4-6AM Mountain time. CAnt your so called expert fixz it to balance when this and that will be shown during reasonable "VIEWERS" reasonable hours . These days, seem those EXPERTS everywhere love to do "marathon" of certain TV shows. CAn your so-called schedule experts re-evaluate the schedule and reduce "marathon" type.

Your website is as user unfriendly as WJZ-TV, I have typed my comments twice and no more after this. forget it! Leave the schedule alone. The 10-12, 3-4 and 5-6 time slots are the only times my wife and I have to watch Medium, Cold Case, and Closer. The "new" shows never attracted us when they were first run, and we have never seen 2/3 of Cold Case and Closer, and never will see all of the Closer since you repeat the episodes in the exact same time slot every time! Give us a break!

Please change Dr. Quinn from 5 am - That just might be one of the worst time slots. Not only are you cutting it down to 2 hrs, but people are either still sleeping, getting ready for work or as in my case still working b/c I work overnights! Now I will never get to watch it. Very disappointed as I have really been enjoying it!
