    Most watched on Vibe: “VERA”! I rest my case – TV One is being run by nitwits.

    • andrew

      are they not repeats of VERA on vibe. I thought vibe was all repeats, I might be wrong.

      • Tania

        I think everything on Vibe is a repeat … but TV One canned ‘Vera’ after only a couple episodes to make way for ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ as a tribute to Robin Williams, then decided not to reinstate it after that, saying the episodes could be watched online instead. I know a lot of elderly folk who love ‘Vera’ who don’t have online access, so I’m pleased that someone has picked it up. I love watching it too.
