  1. CBS This Morning beat NBC’s Today for the first time ever... On Saturday. Still pretty impressive imo.

  2. Well good for them! I haven't watched Weekend Today since Shenielle Jones left. CBS This Morning Saturday is very enjoyable and informative to watch. Out of all the morning shows, I feel like they are thriving the most since they cut out all the entertainment/lifestyle section of the morning broadcast. If you watch the weekday counterparts, GMA and Today seems to be struggling to fill up their broadcast.

  3. Bill Shine oversaw all of FNC primetime programming in the early years when it was still an upstart network. He wouldn't necessarily be my own personal choice, but I actually don't think it's that much of a problem that NewsNation is hiring him if he's only going to be working in the capacity of a consultant. He would probably have some decent insight in knowing how to scale up the operation.

  4. The Mediaite article says that he's going to be consulting on talk shows, so they might do more chatter during the day. I honestly don't see the need for that. Also, Nexstar needs to get its act together on TV Everywhere access to NewsNation, as Spectrum is not one of the options, unless they want to hold them hostage to retransmission consent fees to show NewsNation (it's also not on their OTT subscriber platform, when all other news channels including CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox, Newsy, Cheddar, Newsmax, and the Black News Channel are).

  5. Bill Shine explicitly smacks of "career rehabilitation" on his end. I can't judge many of these FNC/FBN producers that NN poached, but this is not going to help FNC as they further calcify into a cable talk network. For all we know they'll actually do a professional and quality job, which would be a welcome move.

  6. From TVNewser "Shine was co-president of Fox News Channel prior to his tenure as a member of the Trump administration (he served in the comms department from July 2018 until March 2019), He started at the network beginning in 1996 (the year it launched) before resigning in May 2017 around the time of the company’s sexual harassment scandals." (https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/former-fox-news-co-president-white-house-comms-director-bill-shine-joins-newsnation-as-consultant/470108/) In my opinion this could become a problem, what exactly do they expect him to "consult" them on? It's

  7. This is just like what happened to Roseanne when she made that tweet. The reruns were gone for a month and than came back when it was only a memory. Same thing with Michael Jackson when that movie came about. This is why I'm surprised COPS or Live PD haven't come back yet, either new or reruns. Live PD's cancellation led to a boycott of A&E, which is still ongoing, although it's died down compared to last summer.

  8. Wheel/Jeopardy are on WCNC, not WSOC. And the order is reversed on WLOS vis a vis WCNC.

  9. That's what he gets for using a racial slur in any way. But mark my words, he'll be back on the dial soon enough -- either because of the controversy blowing over or thanks to his fans calling for a boycott by crying and whining that their boy is being "cancelled" and "cancelled". In fact, I'm very sure they have an issue with their golden idol being "silenced" (even though they can still find his music on YouTube) more than with any of their favorite Country artists using racial slurs (let alone the N-word). Considering what country fans mostly are, I'm not at all surprised. It

  10. Not seeing any major changes but definitely some hints of it. All graphics including CBS Sports HQ are now adapting a new font and the new logo is starting to be shown off a lot more often. However, CBS Sports Network doesn't seem to be having any change at all especially for their Super Bowl week programs. Looks like CBS is going to wait until game day to debut an entirely new graphics package, or the graphics will just have a more modified look similar to what they did with their last Super Bowl broadcast in 2019.

  11. From 1986, In memory of Two FBI Agents who were killed in Sunrise, FL today. We send our condolences to their families. 35 years ago a similar tragedy occurred in sunniland, on WSVN presented a special regarding the tragedy and WTVJ's original newscast from that day.

  12. CNN is shutting down its airport network because people don't pay attention to it. Many airports offer free Wi-Fi now so travelers are watching what they want on their devices. I imagine the days of an airport news network like that are over. People have other entertainment options that they didn't have before, and the idea of such is a network seems obsolete now.

  13. If the clip is from 1986, it wouldn't have been a segment on WFLD's newscasts, which didn't start until the summer of 1987, but rather a standalone program. ***** A rare 1980s open from KTIE in Ventura Country:
