I hate WGN

So as most of you already know and many of you may have seen Carlos Zambrano threw a no-hitter last night. I wish I would have seen it but WGN (Chicago's Own) was showing The Honeymooners which was proceeded by WKRP in Cincinatti and followed by America's Funniest Videos. Is there any reason viable reason why every Cubs game can't be shown on WGN. Clearly if they are broadcasting shows that went off the air over 25 years ago they are hurting for programming. How can they call themselves Chicago's Own when they show a show set in Cincinatti over a Chicago baseball team? I have no problem with them showing these shows on an off day but not while history is being set. Also does WGN not have the ability to cut into a broadcast when a historic event is happening? Or did they think people really wanted to see what was gonna happen to Johnny Fever or if that guy was gonna get hit in the groin with the wiffle ball (he did)? Lets not stop there though. Why not broadcast every Bears home game? Every Blackhawks game? Imagine how their ratings would skyrocket. I guess they would rather wait and see if Alice is gonna get sent to the moon
