For those of you who enjoy our PBS television cooking/nutrition show, Low Carb CookwoRx, we just got a piece of good news.
The show has been picked up to air for another year by network PBS HD and given a regular time slot beginning in January 2007. We’ll be on air cooking, canoodling, and commenting Monday through Friday at 5:30 pm and 2:30 am Eastern time. What we haven’t heard, yet, is whether the programming will go out as a single feed or dual feed (which makes a difference in time slot on the West Coast stations–i.e., will it feed across the country at once, showing at 4:30 pm and 1:30 am in Central time, 3:30 pm and 12:30 am in Mountain time, and be 2:30 pm and 11:30 pm in Pacific time or will it be refed to show on the west coast in the same time slots as Eastern time.) We’re working to find that out now and will let you know by blog when we do, but rest assured that the show will be back on next year in a stable time slot.
Also, we’ve just learned that CookwoRx also got picked up by the new Create TV Network, a public tv for cable channel, which by federal mandate must be offered on basic cable packages by every cable provider in the country beginning in 2007. Our Create TV time slots are also regular: four times a day on Wednesdays and Sundays at 1:30 am, 7:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 7:30 pm beginning December 3, 2006.
The Create TV deal is great news for us, personally, since the show isn’t currently carried by either of the cable providers where we live, so we, ourselves, haven’t seen most of the completed shows on tv.
We hope that now most of you will be able to get the series and will enjoy and profit from it. And if you do, call, write, or hop online to tell your cable provider or PBS affiliate station!
If you don’t like the show, just quietly change the channel! ;D
