Loveable character actor Abe Vigoda, who died Tuesday at age 94, will be saluted with a 12-episode marathon of his best episodes on “Barney Miller” Saturday (4-10 p.m., Antenna TV, Channel 64.2).

After his memorable role on “The Godfather” in 1972, as double crosser Tessio, he was hired by ABC to play dour Det. Phil Fish on ABC’s “Barney Miller.” The ensemble comedy starring Hal Linden premiered Jan. 23, 1975.

Before we welcome 2016, let’s look back at this year in TV, movies, radio and media from A to Z.

WSTR-TV has added the Antenna TV network to Channel 64.2 in advance of the nostalgia network’s debut of Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” reruns Jan. 1.

Antenna TV bumped the Get TV network from Channel 64.2, which is carried by Time Warner Cable on Channel 996.

Get TV moved to Channel 64.4, not available on Time Warner.

The Antenna TV channel will return to Cincinnati airwaves on one of WSTR-TV’s (Channel 64) digital multicast channels before Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" reruns begin Jan. 1.

When low-power WOTH-TV (Channel 20) dropped Antenna TV earlier this month, I wrote that Antenna’s owners were seeking a stronger signal before the Carson show comeback. And that’s what happened.

Tribune Broadcasting today announced with Sinclair Broadcast Group and four other station owners to add 26 new outlets for Antenna TV.

Low power WOTH-TV has added the BUZZR game show network on over-the-air Channel 20.3 and dropped Antenna TV, which I’m hearing could move to a stronger Cincinnati signal before Johnny Carson “Tonight Show” reruns premiere in January.

BUZZR airs reruns of Monty Hall’s “Let’s Make A Deal,” “Family Feud,” “Match Game,” “Super Password,” “To Tell The Truth,” “What’s My Line,” “I’ve Got A Secret," "Press Your Luck” and “Tattletales.”

Antenna TV, owned by Tribune Media Co., adds  much anticipated Carson "Tonight Show" reruns on Jan. 1, as I reported on in August

“NYPD Blue,” “Hill Street Blues,” “Newhart,” “Bewitched,” “Three’s Company,” The Commish,” “Barney Miller,” “Sanford and Son” and dozens of other old favorites air on Cincinnati’s newest TV station, low-power WOTH-TV (Channel 20).

Elliott Block has doubled his over-the-air TV offerings, with six new networks on WOTH-TV (Channel 20) to go with the six networks on low-power WKRP TV (Channel 25). WOTH-TV (his “Other” station) carries the Movies!, Antenna TV, Heroes & Icons, Decades, AMGTV and Tuff TV networks.

Here’s what you’ll see on each:
