    Its a toss up between watching people take calls or the NBA. Damn Im gonna pick people taking calls. Paint drying edged out NBA action as well.

    Yes because my team (Chicago) is playing and it's a big game in determining where they finish seeding wise.

    Sports coverage in Central Iowa is a joke.

    If you're "all for" charities like this, how can this upset you that much. Seriously, you can't miss one Bulls game for a telethon that helps out needy kids across our state? I'm not calling you selfish, but WTF?

    Re: ABC 5 to show Variety Telethon over NBA tomorrow

    I think when you go to program any DVR for a NBA regular season game, it always comes back and asks -- "Are you serious?"

    This isn't just any random telethon. ABC5 puts this on every year. They don't just televise a feed, they produce and air this telethon.

    Can you imagine -- yeah, sorry central Iowa charities that count on us every to raise $XX. We decided to shut down the telethon for 2 1/2 hours right in the middle so we can televise millionaires playing a basketball game.

    Re: ABC 5 to show Variety Telethon over NBA tomorrow

    Does anyone know why they don't just put the NBA game on 5.2? It seems like a no-brainer, unless there is some contractual reason preventing it.

    Re: ABC 5 to show Variety Telethon over NBA tomorrow

    They could either air an NBA game which would attract 4 viewers, or put on a telethon that get 23. At least there is an outside shot of some entertainment value from the telethon.
