Why don't they ever rerun The Day After or Testament anymore?

Remember those nuclear disaster movies from the eighties?

I remember THE DAY AFTER being on Syfy in the past three years or so. I think it might be on Netflix. I know TESTAMENT was at one time.

The Day After was the drama-queeny approach.

Testament was quiet, and devastating.

Threads (BBC movie) was so depressing.

What was the name of the TV-movie that was made to look like a newscast (it was shot on videotape, not film)? It was first broadcast around the same time as The Day After?

There was an interesting thread on the movie "Testament" on DL a while ago:

Because they were alarmist, chicken little fantasies about the effects of a nuclear bomb. The asteroid that hit Russia a few days ago supposedly struck with the force of 40 Hiroshimas and yet all that happened was some glass shattering. Shouldn't all of Russia have been obliterated? Makes one think that perhaps we all have been misled for the last 60 years about the real power and destructive power of these bombs. Just politics as always.

If you don't know why the meteor didn't cause the same type of damage as a NUCLEAR blast, R7, you're several kinds of stupid and obviously a Republican.

Uh, dear...you do realize that the meteor exploded at between 30 and 50km above the Earth, right? Quite some distance away yet the shockwave STILL shattered windows and collapsed walls!
