    They'd mess up the music as well (using the morning cut of NG4 at night doesn't work)

    hey, it works for 3. (They're trying to distance themselves from being WCBS' "twin")

    They also seem to be trying to distance themselves from news. Eyewitness Features. The difference between CBS Local O&O's approach to news and that of CBS News - especially CBS This Morning is striking. At least here in Philly we get all that fluff & stuff from KYW now, while we get serious journalism and "More News." from the network. Does the B in CBS now stand for Bi-polar?

    That would only work if one of their "notables" would return too - Maury Povich, Ray Murray, Richard Bey, or even Jerry Penacoli.

    We discussed this a few pages back when this open debuted. It's only for the morning show.

    Its 5:00. That open is great. Fits in great with everything the other stations are doing.

    Here we go:



    They're no longer using the morning cut of Enforcer for opens and there's actual city footage in the open and not some still picture composited over some stock sky animation. Also they're now IDing individual newscasts. They had gotten away from that for awhile. Big improvement for them.

    Great graphics. However, this video shows two big problems with CBS3:
    1. I feek like Brooke Thomas tries too hard and it doesn't seem genuine. At the 0:29 second mark, her "uhhhhh" seems forced. The sad part is, she's the better anchor of the morning pair. Don't get me started on Jim.
    2. Looking at both videos, Ukee and Jim are both off. Their subs: Rahel Solomon and Nicole Brewer (who by the way are both very capable anchors in their own right). This station is lacking a male bench. Ukee is their main male anchor, and the only other male is Jim, who probably belongs on weekend mornings (and that's being gracious).
