I was told a while back that a couple of the shows that were contracted 
under the old format were still gonna be carried till their contracts 
expired-- but they would be placed on weekends, rather than in the 
prime-time weekday slot.  Since AA and Jones are not fully staffed on the 
weekends yet  and mainly run best-of compilations on Saturday and Sunday 
(which, I hear, may change soon), it's probably just an effort to honour an 
old contract, get some revenue into the station, etc.  I doubt it will 
still be on the air in a couple of months.
