Rerun of "West Wing" Finale in South Carolina on Saturday

From the Post and Chronicle:
"WCBD-TV viewers who missed the final minutes of the series finale of "The West Wing" on Sunday night because of breaking news about dangerous weather will get another chance to see the show at 7 p.m. Saturday, said station General Manager Joe Pomilla.

"We just think it's the right thing to do. It's just good customer service," Pomilla said.

Pomilla said Tuesday that his decision to rebroadcast "The West Wing" finale hinges on approval from NBC, which he anticipated would not be a problem.

"The West Wing" concluded its seven-year run Sunday. WCBD pre-empted a few minutes at the beginning of the finale and cut into the final three minutes of the show for weather coverage.

"The priority is the safety of the community. You can't control a tornado," Pomilla said. At the time, there were severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings in the area, he said."
