  1. Sorry Ch 7 buy your programming last night was a disgrace. Lets whip up public hysteria by showing not only an un-programmed (however advertised on 7 and here) Corona Virus News Special, but back it up with the movie Outbreak.

  2. I’d call it taking advantage of an ongoing tragic news event for TV viewership! The movie’s (and similarly themed movie “Contagion”) been shown multiple times in recent months.

  3. It’s like the old Creature Feature they used to have on a Friday or Saturday nights,I think it was 7 by memory as it was a long time ago.
    Those were the good old days.
