I recorded the ESPN telecasts on 12-30-12, expecting to see the qualifying heats AND the finals from 2012. But I only got the heats. Has anyone actually seen the finals on either ESPN or ESPN-2? I’ve checked the WSM website, but I’m dubious as to its accuracy regarding the television schedule in the United States.
My suspicion is that executives at ESPN consider WSM to be “cartoonish” filler. No more important than spelling bees or hot dog eating contests. Just something cheap to fill air-time, when their competitors have the NFL playoffs or The Super Bowl to show. Tell me I’m wrong.
