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.
