Angry Channel 110 Court Tv Canceled!

Hello Everyone:

I wonder if any of you have expressed your disappointment over the cancellation of "The Vinnie Show".on the former Court TV Channel 110?

I am an administrator at the 110ers.com website created for this Sirius Channel.

What we know:

Court TV, not Sirius, canceled "The Morning Show" and the live trial coverage programming on Channel 110.

Vinnie Politan, former anchor of Court TV Morning Show and his crew would love to come back to Sirius and do "The Morning Show".

We at 110ers.com have made efforts to try and get the programming we loved back! We email and call Sirius daily! We need to continue those efforts and keep the pressure on Sirius!

Keeping in mind that Sirius did not want to loose Channel 110:

1. We demand that Sirius get Vinnie back on the air!

2. We let them know how much the trial coverage meant to us!

3. We have told them WHY"The Vinnie Show" was so terrific and WHY we want the trial coverage!

If we can continue to do this, we stand a good chance of getting Vinnie back on the airwaves and getting the trial coverage programming we want for the subscription dollars we spend! (We hope)!

110ers.com is pursuing all avenues in bringing our message to Sirius' attention, but we will still need to continue doing their part in calling and emailing Sirius!

If you liked the programming on 110 and miss it come take a look at our website at 110ers.com If you loved "The Vinnie Show", it's imperative that each of us take the time to call and write Sirius! You have friends at 110ers.com!

For those of you who are leaning towards canceling your Sirius subscription, please give this a chance to work!

We have shown unity and patience. We are also frustrated and angry.

110ers.com is on the job and working hard to make this happen! Fear not! For with these efforts Vinnie (The Great One) Politan will be back!

If you have any questions or concerns, please post them to me!

I hope I find a few trial coverage lovers in here!

Sincerely,
Minnesota

While I can totally understand losing favorite hosts etc, you are aware that Court TV (the actual cable Channel) is no longer about courts etc But reality TV?

I think that might have something to do with this......

As GameZoneRadio said, I'm pretty sure it was canceled due to the television ending Court TV to become truTV.

Okay guys, yeah it is true that Court TV changed its name to TRUTV but their trial coverages still continue during daytime. The format change was for primetime only! And, my favorite host, Vinnie Politan, has been and still is a co-anchor on TRUTV. Sirius Channel 110 was CANCELED by Court TV. I cn't believe it was because of the fan base! There are so many angry listeners out there you would not believe it. It's fat from the music stuff and of course Howard but it was good intelligent programming! And then canceled BOOM! like that, and no warning. What are the odds that if the merger goes through, they will start offering "premium" channels and live trial coverage with its huge following will pay that extra $ = more profit

Why are you jumping all over Sirius? How can they "demand" a show that doesn't exist (as a radio program) anymore? That's like blaming Ford because you can't drive up to McDonalds and get a big mac anymore.

If this Vinnie guy works for Court TV or True TV, that probably would be the main reason he wont come back to Sirius and do his morning show. It sounds to me that he is under contract with True TV and does what they tell him to do. Sirius cant do anything about it.

HMM Court tv I knew it was there but I never listened to it once so I won't miss the channel at all. No big loss to me, but I can understand why fans of this station would be upset about it kinda like I was upset when sirius canned swingstreet for the new horrible Siriusly Sinatria station.

Okay everyone, calm down! Many of you do not know that Sirius had a Court TV channel and that's cool. To each their own. What is your favorite channel/personality on Sirius? What would you do if that personality/channel left the airwaves overnight? How would you feel? Would you be passionate about bringing it back? Look what happened with Howard Stern!

Give me your thoughts on this. Irregardless of what programming I am talking about, it's a channel that is no longer broadcasting.

Help!

Thanks!

I did like 110. I do not listen regularly, but got in the mood every so often. I also liked listening before I retire for the evening. I do know several people that loved the channel.

VINNIE POLITAN - SIRIUS 110


Hello!

I found a listener or at least a part-time one! I also enjoyed the Channel in the evening. It also made my commuting enjoyable. Did you ever have a chance to hear the Morning Show with Vinnie Politan? If not, you missed a great personality! His show was about law, legal issues of the day, and lots of laughs! How do mix dry, law with humor? Vinnie did it with ease! I can't find anything comparable to Court TV radio even though if you tune in Channel 110 you will hear "Re-directives" to all kinds of channels. No thank you, I'm not a "surfer" LOL

We have a website 110ers.com dedicated to the old channel 110. If you have the time, stop in and take a look around. We've got some great people in there on the Message Board and we're really trying to make a difference! We're working hard to get Vinnie Politan back on the Sirius airwaves! If you register you can look at photos and we even have an audio player so you can hear parts of his show! I sure do miss him and the programming. I hope others that have listened to Channel 110 will write and email Sirius to give us back our Channel 110!
