Jim Q&A

I keep getting emails that DOC MARTIN’s new season begins 9/20/2017. When will Cincinnati carry it?
MaryAnn A., Cincinnati

DOC MARTIN has premiered its 8th season, but in the U.K.  The series won’t be available here until 2018, and we hope to air it starting 1/11/18. 

The same scenario will likely play out for DOC’s 9th and final season.  It will be available in America around January 2019

Spectrum screwed up (again) while we were out of town last week and didn't record episode 1 of VIETNAM WAR.  Will there be reruns on WCET? if so, when?
Larry B., Hamilton

The only repeats are late night, a few hours after primetime. 

But the series will be repeated in its entirety on Tuesdays 8pm starting 10/3 on CET 48.

Thank you for MILK STREET cooking show. Missed my guy on test kitchen. Love MILK STREET and thank you again.
Tina K., Dayton

And Chris Kimball missed you.  He won’t admit it and will claim that the tears were from cutting onions.  But he knows the trick of how o prevent that, so I’m not buying it.

There was a parting of the ways on AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN a few years back.  But Kimball went out and started up his own series and companion magazine.  CHRISTOPHER KIMBALL’S MILK STREET TELEVISION now airs Saturdays 11am on CET 48 and at 2:30pm on ThinkTV 16. The menu is a bit more international, and the kitchen color scheme is more “subtle earth tones.”  Otherwise, the slightly taciturn Kimball is back doing what he does best.
