    Not sure I understand this one..... As of two days ago, WPTZ's sub channel ME on 5.2 switches to CW during prime time from 8 to 10 on weekdays.

    Cheers, k

    correct. Looks like WFFF (fox 44) lost the CW affiliation and WPTZ picked it up for the national programming only. From Wiki

    On March 4, 2013, WPTZ's second digital subchannel assumed the CW affiliation for the Plattsburgh/Burlington market from WFFF-DT2. and airs the entire CW network program schedule including weekday daytime (3 to 4) and The Bill Cunningham Show, weeknight primetime (8 to 10) and Saturday Morning Children's programming Vortexx from (7 to Noon). Programming from Me-TV will remain on WPTZ-DT2 during all time periods outside of the network slots.

    Basically its a CW primary affiliate and a MeTV secondary now

    Wonder if WFFF dropped it or lost it. To be honest, 5.2 has better PQ than 44.2. Also wondering if WFFF has any plans in the works.
    Personally, I'd like to see THIS return, or ION/RTV picked up.

    Cheers, K

    Looks like WFFF is basically replacing the 2 hours a night with other syndicated fare (per zap2it)
