Overshadowed by uplifting stories about the heroic efforts of celebrity Scientologists to save their neighbors from the rapidly spreading flames of the Griffith Park wildfire are the heart-sickening tales of the blaze's true victims: We speak, of course, of Gilmore Girls fans, who, having just learned that their favorite show won't be coming back next season, had to endure the fresh tragedy of discovering that the one of the series' last original episodes was pre-empted by, like, totally boring! WTF! local news coverage of the fire. They would not suffer silently, however, and flocked to KTLA's GG message board to pillory the station for its unspeakable cruelty. A sampling of their pain follows:
Dear KTLA - Have you lost your mind? The news could have waited until 9 or 10. Police were evacuating the area, so your coverage was not needed. At the very least you should be posting a replay date and time for "Gilmore Girls" at the bottom of the screen. Submitted by: Stephanie
My aunt was evacuated. I understand that a show isn't more important that a home or family. HOWEVER, if I want an update on the fire or their situation, I can pick up a phone, go online, etc. It's silly for the network to cover the story for three hours straight. During regular programming, if you want to alert people about the fire, cut in for 30 seconds and tell people to watch at 10 or read the story at their website.

Please show this episode to your Southern California audience!! We have been waiting for a long time for "the marriage proposal" and were very upset by 50 minutes of fire coverage. Please post the airing time soon! Submitted by: sad mom and daughter
This station is so inconsiderate to it's viewers. We obviously had tuned in to watch GG's, not the news. THey really need to apologize. This is why network tv is waste of time and why given the choice I watch tv shows that i've downloaded- Heroes, for example.

Worst station ever. And they don't even address the concerns of people who missed Gilmore Girls/Veronica Mars.

I can't believe I sat through an hour of this "breaking news" hoping they would turn Gilmore Girls back on after they repeated the same information 10 million times. Nope. They better re-play this episode before the season finale or I will be VERY ANGRY.
