    Right now, as we speak, I'm inside the main news studios of Fox 29; The Q is filming it's Halloween Show, and I'm in the audience. I'll post some up-close pics soon.

    I don't care if that was unprofessional.
    He said what we were thinking, and he was absolutely right. Never loved him more after that.

    Can't say I'm surprised or shocked.
    It was inevitable and Mike kinda got what came to him, since it was one of the 7 Words You Can't Say on Television.
    Thank God it was for a week though.

    In the possibly immortal words of the great(?) Tommy Wizeau:
    "IT'S BOWLSHET!"

    Innuendo and crude humor is one thing. As a WGN Morning News viewer, I know that stuff well. Straight-up saying 'bullshit' on-air is a suspendable offense, no matter the context. As much as we may agree with Mike's assertion, the suspension is justified.

    One small thing...

    The clip in question was from MONDAY. And nobody cared until it went viral on Tuesday morning. Had FTVLive not posted it, I bet he'd have been fine.

    Not if people had been watching that day and contacted fox 29 to tell them what mike said. Im sure the people in the control room heard as well so likely he was talked to about it after the show.

    Now is he suspended because he said what we all are thinking, his language or both?

    Language most likely, though I wouldn't be surprised if it's both.

    Have to agree, as much as he was correct, an outburst like that on the air is suspendable. Now, of course, this was the same company that let Ernie Anastos go pretty unscathed after he told us to keep fornicating poultry.

    Chs 3, 6, and 10 are starting their morning news at 4AM Thursday to cover the snow. Ch 29 normally starts at 4, but tomorrow they're starting at 3:30AM to get the jump on all the important news at that hour. I wonder if that extra half hour will affect the February ratings book?

    Do they even measure ratings during that half-hour? I really doubt it'd make any difference.

    In any event I would say we're through the looking glass here but WCAU did 3am news a few years back so...

    Mike Jerrick returned from rehab today. He explained his ordeal, too. They also added a couch to the set, which I hope they keep. It makes the set seem more casual and comfortable.

    I was home tonight for the first time in a while and decided to catch Fox 29 News at 10. One thing though call me off guard was them playing different songs as they we're going to commercial breaks.
    Just just curious to know how long they have been doing this and what do you guys think of this idea? I know 29 tends to be different.

    They've been doing that for a few years now.
