What am I not understanding?

I have become relatively proficient at the 4x5 challenging puzzles, but I do make a lot of bird-brained errors (overlooking a pattern, clicking the wrong field, etc). I don't think I've made any here, and so I finally clicked on the hint to see what I'm missing.

I still don't know what I'm missing. I'm not seeing where in the clues - or on the grid at this point - that Friday cannot equal GMA.

From the clues, I know that:

Friday > Wednesday

2:00 … PTR

Friday … FNX

GMA > SBC

Your grid shows that SBC = Tuesday.

Now restate clue 7 by substituting Tuesday for SBC and reverse the inequality so it is easier to compare to clue 1.

7. The show that aired on Tuesday had 250,000 more viewers than the show that aired on GMA.

Comparing to clue 1 we see that Wednesday was 250,000 more than Friday.

So Friday is one row above Wednesday, and GMA is one row above Tuesday.

Wednesday and Tuesday cannot be in the same row, so Friday and GMA cannot be in the same row either.

These multiple clue, fixed distance clues combined with grid state situations are the tricky ones.

Of course. I see it now. Thank you!
