KXLY-4 makes room for UPN

UPN has found a new home in Spokane: KXLY-4. But you’ll have to stay up late to catch its UPN broadcasts, at least for the time being.

KXLY and its affiliated digital channel, KXLY-DT, began airing UPN’s prime-time shows earlier this month in the wee hours of Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings.

Anybody for “Veronica Mars” at 2:05 a.m.?

That’s better than nothing, especially if you have a TiVo or a VCR.

However, KXLY plans to launch a new station (both analog and digital) which will air those shows in prime time and serve as the market’s UPN affiliate.

Kirstin Votava, KXLY’s TV marketing and promotions manager, said that launch “will be in the near future,” but the exact date is still up in the air.

Meanwhile, here’s the KXLY schedule for the most popular UPN shows:

•”Veronica Mars”: Mondays at 2:05 a.m.

•”Everybody Hates Chris”: Sundays at 2:05 a.m.

•”WWE Smackdown” (aka “Friday Night Smackdown”): Sundays at 12:05 a.m.

All of the other UPN shows are also airing in the early morning hours of Saturday, Sunday and Monday. (You might prefer to think of it instead as late Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night.)

For the complete schedule, check your listings or go to the website and click on the link that says “UPN schedule.”

This situation came about because Spokane’s former UPN affiliate, KQUP-24, dropped its UPN programming as of Jan. 1.
