    ...of 2017?

    A month seems optimistic, or it might suck, or both.

    Good Day is taking the show on the road every Friday instead of doing the Down at the Shore segments. I wonder if Fox29 will be doing Orr at the Shore instead.

    Good Day is doing their show from Ocean City, NJ this Friday and Wildwood one Friday in July.

    Kathy Orr did "Orr Down The Shore" from Wildwood on her 5 & 6 PM newscasts tonight.

    Is Kathy Orr basically the Chief Meteorologist? She does the 5 & 10pm news and she will also be doing the 11pm show once it starts. Then Scott Williams just does the 6pm Newscast

    My guess is yes, but I thought Scott was leaving.

    Quincy Harris has his own show coming to FOX29 that will be at noon Monday-Friday. It will be called "The Q"

    All the good luck should go to him because for sure, they will lose against WPVI's Channel 6 Action News at Noon. Put an entertainment kind of program against WPVI and it will lose. This will be a ratings failure.

    Yeah, I don't think it'll last either.
    Putting it up against Action News and Days of our Lives is bounds for a quick death. Even KYW might destroy it.
    I think a test run is a more viable option.

    I like the guy a lot, but a segment on Good Day is a better place for him than a whole timeslot hours after.

    KYW has for the most part competed at noon against WPVI due to the Price is Right lead-in's, except for when they replaced it with Talk Philly. WTXF has no chance.

    How competitive is Days, one of the last soaps on the air? I imagine he'll chip away at KYW. Or at least I hope so. Who doesn't miss "The 10! Show"?!


    It's exciting that 29 is trying an 11pm that will likely be third (at best) and now is also taking a chance on something local instead of taking TD Jakes or "TMZ: Pets" (which reminds me- how's "Top 30"?). Props to FOX29 for the addition of Quincy to the morning rotation. He's a great fit.

    Alright, fantasy schedule time- noon is currently "Divorce Court" and "Inside Edition". Does "Q" get the full hour? Where are they going to fit in "Harry" come September?

    Q's new show will only be a half-hour.

    Guess Harry at 2pm and Divorce Court at 12:30. We lose Dish Nation repeat and Inside Edition repeat in afternoon, and Top 30 is only for summer.

    What if Oz move at 2pm and Harry move to Oz's current spot becoming the lead-in to Judy?

    Oz is at 1 currently. TMZ Live is at 3, leading in to Judy at 4.

    Damn. My error. I didn't even think about TMZ Live.

    And don't even think of moving TMZL out of the 3pm slot. It's huge there (at least from name recognition).
    I'd say (since Oz is doing well at 1) give Harry the 2pm slot. I think/feel/am sure it's a show perfect for a mid-afternoon slot.

    TD Jakes would also be a welcomed addition!
