    They bought the entire run of The Cosby Show before the allegations of Russian collision and the top secret meeting with Janice Dickerson in Botswana.

    Enough that KPNX has been ruined. Its enough for either KTVK or KSAZ to now win the Phoenix ratings.

    I think KPNX is still the #1 station in the market. When TEGNA was Gannett, they have WSVN-ified their graphics and music before in 2008. That did not affect KUSA's ratings, and it might not have affected WTSP's ratings, either. The rest of the Gannett stations' ratings might also not have been affected. KARE was nice enough to keep their existing music, and KUSA was nice enough to keep their existing graphics on their teases (until 2012) and talent opens (also until 2012), and their existing music on their talent opens (until 2012) and closes (until February 2009). Gannett called themselves as being nimble at one point according to an old Gannett website. It said so on the first page of the company's annual report. Qwest also called themselves as being nimble through their slogan from 2010 until they were integrated into CenturyLink in 2011: "Get Qwest. Get Nimble". That was after they retired their "Spirit of Service" campaign, which they used from 2002-2008. Do you think TEGNA is still nimble, and how can that be compared to CenturyLink? As for the ratings in the Phoenix area, Scripps-owned KNXV is the number 2 station in the market.

    Personally, I prefer just to start the newscast with no headlines at all.

    WOW. All that's missing is a Scott Chapin voiceover. "12 News at 10 starts...NOW!" or "THIS... is 12 News at 10!"

    The way KPNX does news now? There's no way they're still #1 now. It has to be KTVK or KSAZ by now.

    Oh I don't know. At this point, we can all agree now that KPNX is definitely not #1 and neither is or will be KPHO.

    Does anyone have any tangible proof which station is in what place in Phoenix beyond supposition or assumptions?

    For all we know, KPNX is rising in the ratings by taking a tabloid approach.

    I watched that video without sound as I'm at work.

    I don't plan on watching it with sound.

    >woah-d'oh!< Where's my Dramamine?

    Is that supposed to be a newscast, or a bad amusement ride? >ugh<

    #nightmarenews

    If that's all I've got to choose from, I'll stick to the stills and articles on the website.

    It's the "Eye Opener" after a few shots of Tequila and a hit off the old glass pipe.

    It's over the top and they are definitely ripping off WSVN with "Just one station" and "the night team" slogans. While the latter is pretty common, I've only heard the former at WSVN. I kind of liked the recorded voiceovers of the director saying "roll the open" and "check the framing" - although it only really works with this type of open.

    I just rewatched it, this time with sound. That intro was recorded in advance and assembled in editing, right?
