    Ally McBeal was always Mondays/9pm, but I'm sure that helped build Fox's Monday as one of their stronger weeknights.

    Didn't know they moved to static camera positions. I'm watching a tour and they mentioned a JITA cam (assume they mean jib in the air) that does the overhead studio shots. So does that position move?

    I watching the 4pm when they mentioned a special celebration of Jim Gardner's tenure as 6 & 11 anchor for tonight at 11. Shall be a must-watch.

    Based on his station bio, May 11th was his 40th anniversary as primary anchor.

    Chroma key is MIA. They awkwardly did Long WX at the Big Board (the talent has to step out of frame to walk back to the anchor desk...)

    Today is his birthday, so I guess they chose to do it tonight.

    The celebration was small and lowkey (as expected) but was still humbling and wonderful.

    Hope they find a way to work in the crystalline skyline again. It's a nice Action News signature.

    Maybe they're replacing the video wall if they rest of the set is intact.

    The skyline was part of the (taped) pieces for Jim, and for time to time it appears in other packages. Of course, it is possible these were recorded segments before work began.

    They have to be. Just judging from this shot here, they've either walled off the rest of the studio or there's nothing there at all.

    That's always looked like that, hasn't it?

    I commented on a post of Cecily Tynan's on Facebook what was going on with everyone sitting at the "kids table" and she said "Set construction"

    Nah you could see the video wall from that shot when it was still there.

    I just heard Walter Perez mention something about a new set next month. So I guess that's that.

    Well, found the video-wall background... they certainly put some effort into their temporary set.

    That does seem to be the ABC way, as of late. KABC, WLS, and KTRK built fairly elaborate recreations of their outgoing sets while the new ones were built. In all 3 cases, they were on these setups for a few months, so I wouldn't expect anything til like September.

    As indicated by cg41386, Perez said this is temporary, and they are building a new home "across the hall... will take about a month, and we can't wait to show it to you, it's going to be pretty neat."

    ETA- "about" a month could make this early July, without a doubt.

    Their two studios are the same size. Why would they go through the effort to move existing elements of the old set in the old studio into an empty studio across the hall? Would be a lot easier if they built the set in the empty studio.

    Maybe to allow them to continue their shows that originate from the second studio? Besides, this way we know they are doing something, and even caused them to admit it.

    I didn't know there were any still. I knew there were some during the Live Well era.

    I figure if they are moving a temp set in the studio it must not be used that much and able to get a fresh build.
