Austenblog reports that Ovation Channel will begin showing Lost in Austen this Sunday at 9 PM, directly opposite the second installment of PBS's Tess of the D'Urbervilles, which means Amanda and Tess will be duking it out at the same time for a similar audience. Ouch. There are so few quality shows available, what's a woman of a certain sensibility to do?
Have no fear. PBS is offering videos for a full week after the broadcast on its site, and Ovation will be airing Lost in Austen segments throughout the week. (Ovation is available through Fios, I don't know about the other cable subscribers.) This conflict will extend through the airing of Masterpiece Classic's Wuthering Heights.
