What has happened to OLN's night time coverage of the Giro d'Italia? I turned on the TV and there was a show about elk or something...now its fishing! Whats happening here? My Directv guide shows the giro should be on...I'm very unhappy with them right now!!!

As much as I like elk venison, they should show what they have in thier guide or at least mention why they did not show the Giro. What is up with that? Lom Oc

Guys, it's not hard to find. Coverage of the Giro is on weekdays 9:30 AM, and 3:00 PM, and 8:00 PM eastern. On the weekends (saturday and sunday), it is televised at 3:00 PM eastern. For some reason OLN chose not to show live coverage on the weekends, but most cyclists do enjoy the relentless stream of hoosier programming that is almost always on to begin with. Hah!
Ciao!

Uhh....Last time I checked Friday night is definitely NOT Saturday or Sunday.

According to most of oln.com, and several TV guides, the Giro should have been on last night at 8:00 PM, as it is every other weeknight.

The Front page of their site, and the Giro page say that it should have been on last night at 8:00 PM, but the schedule page says that it was on yesterday afternoon, from 3:00 to 4:30 PM. My best guess says that they did this because they had to bump something else in order to show the Tour of Romandie at 12:00 PM.

Actually, now that I dig a little deeper, it looks like the Tour of Romandie was supposed to be on Thursday night. I think the Mt. Everest Summit Attempt they're hyping is screwing with their schedule.

I have no problem with them changing things around when they see fit, but it would be nice if they let someone know about it.
