"V"ictory for "V" fans

As Adam wrote Monday, WBAY decided not to air the premiere of "V" so that Packers-related program "Tuesday Night Touchback" could run at 7 p.m.

In WBAY's defense, "Touchback" did have Jared Allen's favorite tackling dummy, Aaron Rodgers, on as a guest ... but still, there may have been a few complaints lobbed at the station because today, they announced on their Web site that "V" will be airing at its customary 7 p.m. Tuesday time slot for the rest of November.

In what might be a harder pill to swallow than losing to Brett Favre for a second time this season, that's Sci-Fi Nerds, 1, Packers, 0.

So to recap: the pilot airs Saturday, around 11:05 p.m. after Action 2 News -- though if you're using a DVR, allow extra recording time in case college football runs long. Starting Tuesday, the show will be in its regular 7 p.m. time slot. “Tuesday Night Touchback” moves to 6:30 p.m.

The show will also be available -- with "expert commentary" -- Saturday on

UPDATE: Not having the GB market didn't hurt those sexy aliens one bit. The "V" premiere drew nearly 14 million viewers last night, making it the second most-watched series premiere of the season (behind "NCIS: Los Angeles" and its 18.7 million tally).

It was so frakkin' good (if a bit cluttered for a premiere plot)! And on that note, according to this post, I am dominating the Packers.

I really enjoyed it especially after watching the original V series pilot just a few hours before. It handled all of the original plot points with a nod and a twist. I'll be DVRing it as it was a bit too much for the kids, unlike the original.
