Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 28th May 1999:
KBDI 12 Denver, CO
Guest Editor's Note: Last week was pledge programming. I did not have time to check whether or not KBDI was on a normal schedule again.

ยป based on the absence of the Spiders repeat in the following weeks, it seems likely that episodes were indeed shown this weekend:
Friday at 11PM MDT Planet of the Spiders eps 3 and 4 of 6
Saturday at 10PM MDT Planet of the Spiders eps 5 and 6 of 6
