OK, we’re back up.
Technical problems shut down the system Sunday, just as TV was changing.
In a late move, the FX network made a change for Sunday night. It said it would show “Selma”(shown here) — the terrific film about Martin Luther King — at 8 p.m. that night, delaying “The Greatest Showman” until 11 p.m.
I tried to make the change … but, alas, the technical problem continued. To complicate things, FX then showed “Selma” again at 11, meaning that even its own website was wrong.
At least, “Selma” is worth seeing, several times. Also, many of the people involved will be on TV during the next few days: Oprah Winfrey — who did an early scene in the movie and was one of its producers — has a special at 9 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday (June 9-10) on the Oprah Winfrey Network and other Discovery cable channels, under the title “Where Do We Go From Here?” Among her guests will be “Selma” director Ava DuVernay and star David Oyelowo.
And “Greatest Showman”? Not that it matters, but it’s now set for 8 and 10 p.m. June 19 on FX. We’ll see.
