Viewer Conflict Alert! Lost in Austen vs. Tess of the D'Urbervilles


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.

Too funny Vic! Who will win? My bet is for Tess based on accessibility, though I favor Lost In Austen whole heartedly.

We are DirecTV customers and we get the Ovation channel. I heard others were wondering where to find it. DVRs are the perfect solution for such a conundrum. Love the visuals on this post. Thanks!
