    Now, if only my local channel would "unstretch" the picture to OAR to make it watchable, I might care!

    well at least your station comes in so you can watch it
    Mine is now on a low powered station that the signal drops for no reason and has pixeling too (even when the signal is good)

    Of course, when I saw this title, I knew of course without reading any further that whatever the shows were they obviously won't include the Cosby Show ... lol

    Anyway, got Laff here on ABC's 7-3 (RF ch. 7). Thankfully in the correct OAR, not stretched.

    They're not bringing back Roseanne because of the that controversial Tweet she made last year:
    After Racist Tweet, Roseanne Barr’s Show Is Canceled by ABC

    The original seasons were taken off of Laff following the cancellation of the new season of Roseanne on ABC. Carsey-Werner then wrote Roseanne out of the show, and renamed the show The Conners.
