Dukes of Hazzard News: Dukes airing on CMT

The Dukes of HazzardCMT is airing the Dukes of Hazzard again…sort of! The Dukes schedule is wild and random.

Many fans on our Facebook page, Dukes of Hazzard County, have reported that their own cable TV schedules don’t jive with CMT’s posted schedule.

CMT seems to be making these programming decisions last-minute. On the plus side, they are now airing a wider variety of Dukes of Hazzard episodes.

Here’s what CMT is offering up, per their website:

Wed June 25: Dukes of Hazzard episodes at noon and 1 p.m. eastern

Sun June 29: Dukes binge marathon, starting at 2 p.m. eastern and running through the wee hours of Monday June 30, last episode airing at 7:00 a.m. Monday.

From there, it starts getting weird. Tues, July 1 shows the Dukes of Hazzard airing at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. Yes, just when you got the idea it would be on at night…HA! This is CMT we’re talking about.

But then Wed, July 2 shows the Dukes on at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m, but again in the afternoon, starting at noon. Folks, sometimes we miss the days when there were three freaking TV channels and a couple of UHF stations, and TV schedules behaved themselves. The CMT schedule changes like the weather, and we’ve got about the same ability to predict it. Which is zilch. As always, stay tuned, and check your local listings!

Dukes of Hazzard on air June 6, 2014…maybe!

BoandGL011814Dukes news! A Dukes of Hazzard marathon is scheduled for Friday, June 6 starting at noon eastern on CMT.

Per reports from fans, CMT has advertised this on their broadcast station, though it has NOT been updated on their facebook page or website.

For this reason, we’re sharing the news as we have it, but we can’t promise it’s 100% accurate, since CMT isn’t being consistent across its own media.

Cable TV schedules from Time Warner and Optimum also show the Dukes airing June 6 starting at noon eastern, 11:00 a.m. central. It’s interesting that CMT’s own facebook page and website isn’t confirming this as of yet. They’re probably too busy promoting “Party Down South.”

The Dukes of Hazzard Disappear from CMT Schedule; Temporary Hiatus or Discontinued?

BoLukeWaiting (2)Is it over so soon? After years of absence from the air, CMT had brought back The Dukes of Hazzard to its lineup last January, running multiple all-day marathons and daily episodes. Yet this particular return of the Dukes seemed a bit strange.

Maybe it was the fact that the Dukes of Hazzard episodes were aired in random order. Or the fact they were in such heavy rotation right off the bat. Or the fact that “Party Down South” commercials were given nearly as much airtime as the Dukes episodes. We speculated in a prior post that maybe CMT was just using the Dukes to pimp their other crappy programming.

Well…maybe they were. A quick visit to the Dukes page on CMT’s website shows no Dukes of Hazzard episodes scheduled in the upcoming week. Is it a short break while CMT organizes the summer lineup? Or dismissal until further notice? Given how CMT has handled the show – with heavy repetition of the same episodes, erratic air times and chopping for excessive commercials – it may be no loss.

CMT clearly capitalized on the popularity of The Dukes of Hazzard to promote Party Down South. After renewing the crap that is PDS for a second season, CMT appears to have shelved the Dukes again. We could be wrong. But having watched CMT vigorously promote, and then defend, PDS as the most popular offering in its lineup (which tells you how far this channel has sunk) we have little reason for optimism.

Dukes of Hazzard Fanfic.com website revamps

CooterWDukesYou might have noticed that we’re running  a little sluggish lately. Not just us, the website! Ya see, we have the happy problem of getting more traffic than expected. It’s bogging down our cheap, crappy hosting service.

This means that out site “stalls out” once in awhile and takes too long to load. If that happens, please refresh the page and it should pop right up.

In the meantime, we are working on a permanent solution to this problem. Namely, upgrading our hosting service and connecting all the dots to it. Since we are not technical wizards, this should provide vast amusement for our competition. But being dense has never stopped us before, and it won’t now! We’ll be running better than ever in the near future. We thank you for your patience!

And don’t forget, the Dukes of Hazzard is being aired weekdays on CMT! Check your local listings for air times and episodes!
