Question 3am to 7am Invicta Programming?

Woke up this morning and found that the 3 to 7 early morning Invicta from Cabo programming did in fact record though it was all pre-recorded? Was this planned? What happened?

Good way to push the TTV. Most people don't watch 4 hours of Shopping TV in a row when most are in bed. If ever a TTV would be a impulse buy this one would be it.

Saw this myself. I couldn't believe they were repeating the SAME SHOW over and over and over and over again. Was there some technical issue? Just seemed strange to repeat the same exact show for that many hours on a shopping channel these days.

Or did Michael check out of the "No Sleep Club" and decided to, well, sleep instead.

I thought this was different myself. I hope this isn't the new SHQP.

Maybe they decided that they needed sleep.

When i was looking over the item listings on the web yesterday for the overnight shows I thought it was strange that that block of shows all had the exact same items listed. Now I know why!

I'm sure it saved them a ton on production costs and they were going to be pushing the TTV all night anyway.

Yes, this was planned. It is something "new", at least for watches.

It's all good. I was curious as to how folks would react to it. I have my own thoughts on the matter...but was curious as to how the viewers would respond and what their thoughts would be. So, I am glad it was brought up and people can respond.

There are so many time zones. Unless you are one of those rare individuals who watch every hour of programming, maybe most people wouldn't notice. Most people who have seen it were probably sleeping. (I hope you were). Or if you DVD'ed it, it could be annoying, most people don't do that. The DVD'ding does make sense, because all of the pricing is in effect for a limited time.

I have been waking up early and tune into the shop , they have been running "previously aired" shows ( not just watch shows ) for awhile now.. It is stated at the top of the screen and says "previous offers may no longer apply..." so it is NOT unique to these watch shows...

I have to say I didn't like it. I see there are a bunch of shows tonight late, I hope last night it was just because of the TTV.

I slept through it. So I missed it. Then I missed it again. Then I missed it again. Then I missed it again.

As a night/early morning owl, I must admit I prefer live programming. But I know that obviously not everyone has my hours. And can see where repeating a show would save production costs.

My suggestion is though if they are going to non-live programming, don't repeat the same exact show over and over again. Take 3 different shows and play them for those 3 hour blocks overnight. At least it would give some variety.

But I still prefer live shows though. I miss my appointments with No Sleep Crew.
