WDJT dumps Victoria, Upscale gets upped

Weigel Broadcasting’s WDJT-TV in Milwaukee (also owner of sister station WCIU-TV here in Chicago) announced it was moving next Tuesday’s The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to 12:40am (last item in article), pre-empted for all things, A Billy Graham Special. GM Jim Hall says that the station has received some complaints about Victoria’s Secret in the past.

Some people are upset the way the station is run. (We have are own questions about WCIU’s sister station, WMME-TV, or ME-TV here. America’s Funniest Home Videos and Roseanne as classic TV? Come on!)

In other area TV news, The Sun-Times’ Robert Feder reports today that locally produced magazine show Upscale Chicago, is being upgraded to a late Saturday Night time slot on WFLD-TV at midnight, beginning Dec.9. The program is airing out of the popular late-night Fox show Talk Show With Spike Feresten and the syndicated Whacked Out Sports. Upscale had aired on late Thursday nights (Thursday?) on sister station WPWR-TV.

Of course, that is not as interesting as what Feder put at the end of his column. (Talk about Victoria’s Secret.)
