Chicago sports fans are going to be in a tizzy trying to find their games tonight, as the Bulls, Cubs and White Sox are in action all at the same time.
Comcast SportsNet will air Game 2 of the Bulls-Heat quarterfinal (also available on TNT), while the Cubs-Brewers game will be on CLTV (or Comcast SportsNet Plus), and the White Sox-Royals game will be on Comcast SportsNet Plus 2, which in the Chicago area, means it will air on Total Living Network, a Chicago-based religious programming cable network run by Jerry Rose, who headed Christan Communications of Chicagoland, the former owner of WCFC-TV (now WCPX). WCFC was sold to Paxson Communications in 1998, and became a PAX (now Ion)-owned station.
Usually, Comcast SportsNet Plus 2 airs on the Comcast Network, an infomercial and leased-access channel, but that’s being used for a Wolves playoff hockey game tonight (hockey playoffs in Chicago in April… a novel concept…. it just might work….)
WGN-TV, which holds the broadcast rights to all three, opted to stick with the female crowd with new episodes of Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls. Both shows are “on the bubble” for next fall, and need all the help they can get.
Of course, it doesn’t really matter… All the shows tonight will get slaughtered by American Idol anyway…
