Giants' weekly preview show moves to WNBC-TV
The Giants' weekly, team-produced preview show will move this season from Sunday mornings on Ch. 5 to Saturday nights on Ch. 4.
It had been on Ch. 5 since its inception in the mid-1990s.
"Giants GameDay" will air from 7 to 7:30 p.m., featuring the usual suspects, including Bob Papa, Carl Banks, Tom Coughlin and VP of communications Pat Hanlon yelling at people on the "Giants On-Line" segment.
(I used to be on "GOL" when it was a stand-alone program on MSG and later YES. Then I left the beat, and later started blogging. Now no one recognizes me at airports anymore.)
Ch. 4 will show two Giants preseason games this summer, against the Lions Aug. 7 and the Patriots Aug. 28 in a Super Bowl rematch the teams won't care at all about, because no one takes the final preseason game seriously.
But season ticketholders have to pay for a ticket to it anyway.
