I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)


@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

Hi guys. It's been a while.


Within the last 2 days, I decided to take on a small task of my own, which was to find out the week by week broadcast history for the Sonic SatAM on it's original network, ABC.


With the use of some historical newspapers at the Google Newspaper Archive(notably, the paper's respective TV guides), I found all of them.


The list of the times is as follows(all times ET/PT)


From the Sept. 18, 1993 show premiere to Nov. 13 that year, the show aired at 9AM.


From Nov. 20 to Dec. 18, the show would start it's double-run, airing eps at 8:30AM & 9AM.


The show would begin it's Season 1 reruns on Dec. 18.


On Dec. 25 that year, the show only had a single airing that day at 8:30AM.


On Jan. 1, 1994, the show had a single airing at 9AM.


From Jan. 8 to April 30, the show returned to double-runs at 8:30AM and 9AM.


On May 7, the show would no longer double-run, going back to single airings at 9AM. The only exception was on July 23, where the show was nationally pre-empted for the British Open Golf Championship. The single airings at 9AM would continue until Sept. 3, when Season 1 was in rerun for the last time.


On Sept. 10, and lasting until Dec. 10, Season 2 would be shown at 8:30AM. Season 2's first run ended on Dec. 3.


On Dec. 17, and lasting until the end of the show's run on ABC on June 3, 1995, the show would be seen at 8AM.


One thing I noticed in those TV guides is that, for the most part, Eastern time airings didn't see a lot of pre-emptions. That actually affected the West coast more than it did the East.


Anyway, there's that mystery solved.

I salute your dedication and determination my good man. I don't think I'd have the patience to check each week.

I seem to remember the show being on earlier.  But then again, it was a long time ago.  My memory is probably shoddy.

To you, Red, yeah...it was a bit of a task, as I needed to go through 104 weeks of TV guides to get the data. But 2 other things I forgot to mention were that A] the months of May 1994 and May 1995 could've had some sporadic pre-emptions in the Mountain and Pacific time zones due to live action from Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Indy 500 qualifiers, and B] everything related to East coast college football games airing on West coast ABC affiliates then.


And Wildfire, it has been a while since the show aired...all our mental clocks do get confused on the start times for the show. Which is why I did the research here, that I hope can get used on a website somewhere. =B

Sorry for the double-post, but I have an update here, this time regarding the Sonic SatAM on the USA Network.


Through the Google News Archive, I saw that the TV listings from the Free Lance-Star in Fredericksburg, Virginia contained the lineup for the USA Network.


In my search, I discovered that both AoStH and the SatAM aired on that channel for 2 years, with the date range going from Monday, Sept. 11, 1995 to Thursday, Sept. 11, 1997(right down to the day too).


And, my findings uncovered that the Sonic SatAM appeared to only have a limited run on that network, where it would air at 7AM ET/PT from Oct. 21, 1996 to Jan. 3, 1997, with interruptions on Nov. 28(U.S. ThanksGiving), Nov. 29(Black Friday), Dec. 25(Christmas Day), and Dec. 26(Boxing Day). Special programming would air in those slots.


Now, these are just the dates I found. But if I'm wrong, and if anyone here has official issues of TV Guide from this period that may have clearly listed the different titles of the 2 shows, and may show more airings for the SatAM on USA, I'd like you to post that info here, so I can make corrections.
