Actionmage September 19, 2014 Share September 19, 2014 Hi! I have been inundated with promos for Blue Bloods and Rookie Blue, which start airing episodes at the end of this month. I'm fine with that, with either show, and agree that both can be uplifting viewing (though I do not watch either). Yet, the channel is highly skewed to police procedurals as is. Isn't there any uplifting medical shows or other genres that can fit under the broad umbrella of "uplifting"? This is not to knock the network; I can lose chunks of time with Cold Case and Leverage is my personal favorite. I'd watch episodes on a continuous loop if ion would run them that way. These are the shows that ion has listed on their site (http://www.iontelevision.com/shows): Criminal Minds, The Listener, Burn Notice, Blue Bloods, Cold Case, Flashpoint, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Leverage, Married...With Children, Monk, Numb3rs, psych, Rookie Blue, at the movies, and entv. So of the 15 shows, 10 are police/private eye shows. There is one comedy, time for theatrical movies, and a show that is a minute long twice a day on two days of the week. There are two shows that deal with extra-legal wrong-righting. As I said before, I am not hating ion. I watch it intentionally and enjoy a good half of the shows they offer. I just wonder if there is any other uplifting/positive programming that could be shown? Link to comment
