    I think the hope is that whoever NBC bring over will be a success tho they are okay with it not if it takes away from another network. I think they hope that Megan Kelly will be a ratings draw tho more then likely she won't and I would guess by the end of December she will either be out or on her way out and no one including Megan Kelly will be terribly surprised.

    "Special series" more often than not means a limited run. IMO.

    Plus maybe they are starting to build up a new, different library of documentaries to run on weekend nights and finally retire "Lockup."

    The On Assignment newsmagazine had legs that NBC could work with. On Assignment on NBC did so much better then Megyn Kelly's newsmagazine. The problem is that NBC always wants to compete with 60 Minutes, they should give it up. There is only one 60 Minutes.

    Greta is a weak broadcaster, she worked at Fox News cause she was not threatening and she had that twang which appealed to a certain audience.

    She was placed in a bad time slot, the 6:00 time slot is the worse time slot in cable news. No show that is on the 6:00 hour does well on MSNBC. I am surprised Al Sharpton's show did as well as it did. Cable newsers are competing against evening news and evening news brings in millions of viewers a night. Greta had no chance and also she probably left cause she knew trouble was brewing with the scandals and she did not want to be a apart of it.

    Maybe it was because her show sucked, and no thought or planning was involved in her show. It was like hey NBC has Greta, and we can just throw a show on and people will watch at 6 pm. I agree she was up against a lot of stiff competition, but her show sucked from day one it aired.

    This is the one thing I never, ever understood about her. How you can be someone claiming to be a journalist and a Scientologist, I have no idea...

    I'm asking myself if I would find her credible presenting the subject somehow.
    Is that something one just 'dabbles" in?

    Gotta admit I would watch, but could I give her a fair shake if she was defending or supporting?

    I don't know either.

    I am pretty sure she's a practicing Scientologist. She dresses just like one on TV. I don't know if you've ever been in the area around headquarters, but you will see them all over there, all wearing those very neat, tightly-outfitted black suits with white or blue button-ups underneath. Greta also supposedly has a house in Clearwater, which is where a lot of those upper crust Scientologists have their houses too, indicating that she's probably pretty high up in the church. What is odd though is that she has kept it all very hush hush unlike any other celebrity Scientologists, and her sister is a psychiatrist, aka "a practitioner of death" or something...

    But with all that said, I can't imagine her leaving the church anytime soon, let alone being anywhere near Leah Remini.

    And I'm sure all 12 viewers will love her.

    Seriously though, where is OANN even available? I've never seen it included in any cable package or even on hotel TVs which seem to sometimes have random and weird channels (for instance, I've been in hotels in New York and London that both carried the American RT feed, but I think even the Kremlin's very own is more popular than OAN).

    OANN is on FiOS among the news channels, but I'm sure they'd have exactly that number of viewers on average anyway.

    The owner(Wealth-TV ) has pissed off and sued so many cable operators that nobody will carry them.

    I have been inside the operation, and have a few insiders there. It's a LOW budget operation. It's "bring your own paper clips" low budget.

    They wouldn't want to even spring for Greta's monthly parking on the hill.

    My local 7-11 has more employees...and pays much better.

    Couple of questions when does Ari start his weekday show? Was Pulse of America cancelled? I don't see it on he guide anymore.

    It's not in my guide anymore either and ever since TiVo turned to RoVi their guide was slow to update. I think it was on last week but it's Facebook hasn't been updated since June 27. It's a long shot but I tried the message feature on Facebook. However according to WikiPedia it states that Microsoft discontinued the free version of Microsoft Pulse and states it's only available now as a part of Skype for Business during a Skype Meeting Broadcast. So that likely meant the end of the show.

    I have not seen anything related to a premier date or name for Ari's show. He has been posting control room shots lately during times when the main studio 3A isn't in use (based on the time and as the cameras seen show an empty studio). Maybe they are rehearsing and going over different elements but to be honest I don't know why they can't go over the show in a conference room.

    Additionally based on the following Tweet it sounds like The Point is over:



    That and I haven't heard anything on when Thomas Roberts starts anchoring weekend nights or when in July they'll expand live coverage until 9PM eastern or rotas (a word learned from TVForum but never had a chance to use it.)

    Thomas Roberts anchored The Point's time slot last Sunday. Made no mention on air or social media about when he'll expand to Saturdays and 7-9pm ET as well
