Just a quick note to express my disappointment of your cancellation of the Norther Exposure re-runs you’ve been running. I understand that the show can’t run forever though, and I thank you for giving such a great show a second life and a whole new audience during the time you did run it.
Embarrassing, yes. But I had to admit it in order to post this impressive response. I don’t think it was written just for me – there must be at least a thousand freaks just like me. Nevertheless, I was very impressed that a human got my email. One tip for companies responding to customer email: don’t call me ‘viewer’ or ‘customer’ – take a second and type my damn name.
Thank you for your comments regarding programming on A&E.
Because our licensing agreement has expired, the program mentioned in your email, NORTHERN EXPOSURE, has ended its run on A&E and will not be returning to the network. As the final cycle commenced in late July, we did not have enough time to repeat the entire 110 episodes; thus, we decided to telecast the most highly rated episodes.
We appreciate that this popular series has won many friends during its tenure on our network, and we know it’s difficult to say goodbye to Cicely. Keep checking fan clubs and various web sites such as www.retrotv.com/nexp.html and http//www.netspace.org/moose/moose.html for updates on the stories of Joel, Maggie, Maurice and all the gang.
A cable channel, Hallmark, is now telecasting NORTHERN EXPOSURE. As copied from their site (www.hallmarkchannel.com) we found:
