So, is Slane still on CBS?

I was thinking about this as I havent seen any adverts for it on CBS at all???
Then I read the off the record article @U2.com yesterday as it discusses the same issue. Anyone in the states seen any ads for the show? Its still slated for Friday at 10pm est i guess. CBS still has this on thier site
CBS U2

????

It's still listed at TV Guide's website, so I don't know, I'm gonna have my VCR set anyways. I know they're worried about low ratings again but they sure aren't gonna help that if they don't plug it at all........


edit*

I think we only got word about the special at the beginning of November, right? I checked back at CBS, and the page for the special has been updated since when I first saw it - they now have video clips, poll, quiz, etc. - I think that's a good sign. But now I'm also kinda confused now cuz at the top of the CBS page it says it will be on at 9pm, and down the page a bit at the beginning of the article it says 10pm?!? TVGuide still says 10....

It'd better be on or I'm going to boycott CBS (no big loss on my part...don't watch it much anyway 'cept for the occasional soap!).

So I'm thinking, maybe worst-case scenario if they pull the plug on this, we can do a letter writing campaign or email blitz expressing our disappointment at their toying with our emotions, dangling the carrot and then pulling it away......Let's just hope for the best for now

I'm curious as to where all this "they're not going to show it after all" talk originated...I saw a post the other day on U2Tours.com about it, but other than that and this forum, that's all I've heard.

In my local newspaper TV Guide, there was a huge POP-era photo on the front advertising it...and a nice article inside!...I haven't seen any commercials, then again I haven't seen any ads for anything but football over the holidays....considering the site is still up and running (the CBS one, that is), I would assume it's still on.

I sure hope you're right! I haven't seen any Tv ads, but then again I also seldom watch CBS. If you think about it, it's on at 10PM...Kind of late to have a special on...What kind of ratings would they be expecting?

*still keeping my fingers crossed!*

I just checked out the thread at U2tours.com...LOL...why is it that EVERYONE seems to know someone at (insert any media corp. here)?...

I sure hope it does come on...I've been waiting for this since I heard the rumors a while ago, not to mention I have the VCR ready for recording!!

The Omaha World Herald Sunday paper weeky tv guide has U2 on the front cover and the headline reads: U2's Beautiful Day. Plus there's a nice article on the inside about the Slane special. The Friday schedule has it listed as showing at 9(CST). I'm guessing they're still going to show it.

Wow! With all the local tv guides and papers advertising, CBS would sure make themselves look like complete MORONS if they didn't show it!!!

Yeah, it's on CBS's main page, so I'm assuming 99% of it's affiliates will be airing the concert.

p.s. try the U2 lyrics quiz at cbs.com It's for a die hard fan.

Yeah... I got all of them right...I think it said something like, "you sure you don't know Bono?"

Big Grin

It still is kinda odd that they aren't running any promos for it. I was watching CSI Miami last night and the only promos were for their regular weekly shows.
