Showing my Civil Disobedience

I say Enough with Operation Repo and UFO Hunting garbage! OLN, however, has a different take...

Thank you for taking the time to email with your comments surrounding OLN programming and Tour De France. Your comments are important to us and your feedback will be passed on to the programming department for review.
OLN is providing LIVE coverage of this year's TDF only. In previous years, OLN viewership patterns have shown that the live portion of the tour has received the strongest audiences.
Due to station programming requirements, we are unable to pre-empt regularly scheduled programming in order to provide repeat coverage of the daily tour stages in primetime.
For additional details about this year's TDF, videos, news and standings please visit,

Tour de France Prime Time Coverage!

Hello - just writing to BEG that you reconsider airing the Prime Time Tour de France Coverage. I'm not able to watch the live broadcast, and have for the last 5 or 6 years depended on the evening show.

Please bring it back! If not for this year, definitely next year.
