TV Guide is no more, they will now on be just a normal size magazine with a lot less TV listings and more articles. Yet another part of my childhood, is gone forever  Sad

The last issue in the classic format will come in 9 different covers.

I'm a little sad about it too...

I suppose that's a consequence of the information age, but what will my mom do with the custom TV Guide cover she made in the 60s?

What?  I thought it was the most popular mag in the world!  I have never purchased a copy, but my local paper still prints its own version.  Do the publishers think that everyone gets TV schedules online or something?  When I do sit down to watch prime-time tv (rare), I find it a confusing morass, unnavigable without a guide.

They have been declining and ad revenue is down...listings were less and less the last 3 years anyways...

It seems that internet listings, and cable and satellite having channels listing programs has finally taken its toll...I'll miss classic Guide, but its a different world, huh?

The classic TV Guide is indeed gone.  As stated, they will now contain less TV listings and concentrate on articles.  Once TV Guide was the source for all TV listings, from the time the channel went on the air until it went to dark (do any stations go to dark at late night anylonger?).  Now this will occur no more.
Quite the shame.

The new Doctor Who series is good.  As are Star Trek: New Voyages and Star Trek: Hidden Frontier.

These are the only shows I watch - not only are they the only shows that I enjoy, but they're the only shows that I find watchable.

You'll note that none of them is made by a big network in New York or California; and none of them is available on cable TV.
