    • Happy holidays, try to stay out of jail.   https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2018/12/18/cops-arrest-palm-beach-anchor   https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2018/12/18/seattle-meteorologist-is-arrested   https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2018/12/18/arrested-memphis-reporter-heads-to-court
    • Roundabout thoughts on recent syndie trends: * You can't take Nicki Minaj that seriously in the case even if it has some merit when her other situation is not that of a moral ground to stand on.     https://www.complex.com/music/2018/12/nicki-minaj-responds-to-reports-about-her-new-boyfriend-being-sex-offender * A stunner in the industry. 25 years for a show under one founding station group in such a changing environment is no small feat. Something's gotta give recognizing as such. "New FOX" is changing the game as we see it, don't @ me.   * Has anyone have heard any developments with "Steve" talk show? I know NBC stations passed on for Kelly Clarkson's new talk show, but that's different from whether or not it'll return next fall. I could see it being on FOX stations as well. WAGA has the talk show there.    * I actually like 'caught in providence'. I've heard someone said it looked as poorly filmed as byron allen's court shows. No, the fauxness of byron's court shows make them "poorly produced". This more felt like it could've been seen on TruTV before it went comedy 24/7. That said, I don't know if it'll return next fall but the selling point of a nice judge with fair justice is there. It's like an antithesis to the typical court genre, mainly Queen Judy.   * Face the truth is basically Dr. Phil's rejects, not good enough drama he can manipulate. Yeah I said it. I'll say it wouldn't return, but the same production company also produces 'The Doctors' + 'Daily Mail TV', so make that what you will. Oh wait...  
    • BREAKING: The FCC has greenlighted yesterday (12/17) Nexstar's KFVE acquisition (and the satellites). We shall see if the FCC will allow the KGMB/KHNL combo to go through in the Gray/Raycom deal.                           
    • To clarify. I was only taking about the "other" syndie shows that air on KOSA 7.2, not the MyNet primetime shows itself. If Gray is willing to acquire the CW Plus affiliation, while keeping the status quo that's (all of the syndie shows that's airing) on MyNet 7.2, then what is the problem with operating both separate streams (like what they've done in several of their markets)? It's next to impossible to merge if you're obligated to run the full CW Plus lineup with syndie shows, plus the syndies on 7.2. They're already going to confuse the viewers once the CW switch happens, whether its 7.2 or 7.3 or whatever. That deal is still waiting for an FCC greenlight (The FCC greenlighted the deal last week (12/12)).  But look at both KNCT & KWTX contours together. That proposed KNCT signal doesn't even serve the sections north & northeast of Waco (it barely serves Waco itself). And it doesn't even touch Bryan/College Station. Maybe Gray might move the antenna/transmitter to where KWTX is (and that's if their deal goes through). But even if they don't move the signal, and it does carry Telemundo (Sinclair would have a baby because the contour serves a good chunk of Austin), they would still have to place the network on a sub of KWTX to serve those northern sections mentioned.
