    • Pat mentioned that Gus is off this weekend.
    • Pat was back in studio this weekend. She mentioned Gus at the end of the newscast, but he wasn’t on screen. I’m guessing he was on from home.
    • Yeah, because television is SOOOO comparable to newspapers. 🙄 Hey, if people are willing to pay for Spotify, Apple TV+, HBOMax, CBS All Access, Disney+, Amazon Prime, etc, why aren't they willing to pay for visual news content in the same way? Especially, if they can get the content JUST catered to them (microtargeting). It's the big newspapers that are being gutted and haven't converted well because A. Owners are treating them like slush funds (like these big station groups do to their stations) and B.They are using technology to promote an old model of journalism, not evolving it (which they could digitally). Small community papers have been growing for that very reason! I have quite a few local papers that I love, but it's just not the same video storytelling. Reading a story about Iran isn't the same a seeing the visuals and hearing the content. You get more nuance. Why do you think NPR is so damn successful? That kind of storytelling you can read, but it doesn't have the same power.   If the cost to produce a fictional show during a pandemic isn't more expensive than the revenue returns from a CBS NewsNight program.
    • A friend of Allison's said something about how Allison was pushed out, for younger talent, and how management prefers Holly Morris, and Erin (Don't know the last name), etc. It was a lot in the post. I'm sure there will be more insight on it in the coming days. 
    • Just wanna make myself clear, they wouldn't be giving up an hour of primetime shows, they would be placing a 30 min newscast as soon as the 3 hour primetime ends, so either 10 or 11 depending on the market since primetime begins at 7 or 8 depending on where you live. They would still get plenty of advertising money. Also 10:30 / 11:30 would work too.
