    "(Please Note: The kickoff time for the Cowboys game against the Redskins on 11/18 has changed to 3:15pm CDT.)"

    No more conflict.

    CBS has decided to show the Titans for the rest of the season on tape-delay. They're going to edit it down to an hour, removing every bad pass and turnover that God commits. So, if you love Titan offense, you will now only get to see about 30 handoffs and 2 or 3 nice scrambles a game.

    My guide on DirecTv is showing the Saints/Texans. I set it up to record yesterday, I better go back and check it.

    man we cannot catch a break anywhere. Guess Austin is going to punish Houston for a very long time because of YKW.

    You know the drill. They want to know what their viewers think don't they?

    "I was previewing your schedule for Sunday the 18th and noticed that the online programming guide had a mistake. Under the "TV Listings" tab at myfoxaustin.com it has the Falcons/Bucs game listed for noon instead of the Saints/Texans game. Hopefully this is typo, as clearly there would be little to no interest in a Falcon/Buc game, and the regional Saints/Texans game would have more viewers. I hope that you can get this changed before anyone else notices, so you won't lose any more viewers for that time slot. I look forward to watching the Saints/Texans game on KTBC this Sunday as well as the advertisements your clients have entrusted will be seen by a maximum targeted audience."

    They don't suck...they are just uneducated. What we have here is failure to communicate.

    Thanks for the link, sent my 2 cents in as well.

    I still kinda wonder why this happens, it would never happen to the other Texas team, oh yea I forgot they have T.O. & stars on their helmets.

    It now says "Teams TBA" on the FOX website. There is no way they are showing Falcons/Bucs over the Texans/Saints. If they do someone needs to be fired.

    Time Warner menu says Saints-Texans, and the TW menu has been an accurate indicator in previous weeks

    They just put the default game up until later in the week. It'll be Texans/Saints.

    Looks like KTBC is good to go! GAME ON!


    TV Guide incorrectly listed the Tampa Bay/Atlanta game for us at 12noon this Sunday. They were notified of the mistake yesterday, however it does take them a while to update their electronic listings.

    Our confirmed NFL Doubleheader lineup for Sunday, 11/18 is

    Game #1 (12pm) New Orleans @ Houston
    Game #2 (3pm) Washington @ Dallas

    Thanks for watching FOX 7.

    Might be a good idea to send a quick "Thanks for choosing the Texans" email to programming@fox7.com

    Let's them know we are out here in case of future conflicts where they have to make a decision on the Texans.

    Also, I think KEYE's contract to show Texan preseason games may be done, so possibly Fox could work out a deal to show Texan preseason games next year and beyond, if they know an audience exists.

    Just trying to do a little forward thinking....
