    Bill Elder, Phil Johnson, Jim Metcalf, Nash Roberts, Don Westbrook, and Frank Davis would all be rolling in their graves at today’s WWL.

    What about Raleigh-Durham? My guess is WRAL is still tops and WNCN beat WTVD for #2.

    As for Minneapolis-St. Paul...KARE (if they’re immune to TEGNAitis or not) over WCCO and KSTP, I hope.

    I laugh that WNCN beat WTVD...Yeah ok...

    As for MSP...I'm sure it the usual CCO, KARE, KSTP v. KMSP fight for #3

    PelicanGuy, you're not mincing words, and for once, I don't blame you. I knew something bad would happen to WWL once the Gannett-Belo merger took effect in 2013. I did not think things would come to where they are now.

    WTVD has always been a very solid runner-up if memory serves, and WNCN is a distant #3. KARE hasn't been dominant in a while now, and WCCO is usually #1.

    But 40 years ago, and as evidenced by their ads in Broadcasting [& Cable], KSTP was #1 themselves (with the late Dave Moore and company on WCCO runner-up); their newscasts even beat out all the primetime network shows! So unless if I’m wrong, WCCO is the only CBS O&O that’s been #1 in their market.

    KDKA is usually #1 in the Pittsburgh market as well. However, they're not as dominant as they were in the pre-O&O days.

    KARE is a solid second similar to WKYC. But remember, just as Gannett has given life, Tegna can take it away.

    WCAU is claiming a demo win at 4am and at 11pm.

    They actually tied WPVI at 11pm, but still—I don’t think they’ve been #1 in any time slot back-to-back...like, ever.

    WJW is once again number one in all of its time slots in Cleveland including New Day Cleveland (its 10am show). I have a feeling WKYC took the crown for 11pm. Does anyone in CLE have a breakdown of how each station did in sweeps?

    Total agreement there. They are HARD to watch these days.

    That's a well-run organization there.

    And I see it every day, as long as I'm in Gainesville.

    Since we still talk November sweeps...for the 2016-17 season and based on ratings points, The Big Bang Theory became the new #1 show overall (and the first comedy to finish since Friends in 2001-02).
