We're talking to them about some long-term solutions, but to the immediate, there's nothing that TNT can do.

What you're seeing is the reason we couldn't do B5 in regular
syndication...commitments were made to WBN, to UPN and Fox and other weblets
that are chewing up ALL the available slots on syndicated stations...there's
no room at the inn. Also, we're now a lame duck show for the stations, some
of which are kind of annoyed that we're now going to cable (their direct
competition), and don't want to back-handedly promote somthing that's going to
their competitor. (I think some of them would have preferred we go quietly
into that good night than become a competition.)
