  1. Looks a little like it's trying to be WISH, but flatter.
  2. Only now that they can't buy Trib.
  3. On a more serious note - likely the only reason it's GMA-branded is because ABC sees some value in the brand now, given the parent program's #1 rating in HHs during the morning--and their recent demo wins. I like the Crew name too, but this looks like ABC trying to build GMA into a more fluid, all-hours brand like Today.
  4. Personally I was hoping for a rename to GMA3: Return of the Jedi. We also would've accepted GMA3: G With a Vengeance.
  5. I actually think the open looks a bit cleaner now - pretty nice!
  6. The 10PM news on PHL 17 just crashed into commercial - video wall wasn't working and they cut everything to black a few seconds after... --They came back like nothing happened. Though the wall is from a different daypart and not moving. Was hoping they had a textured blue background on standby like WLS!
  7. That's at least a better version of WGHP's set. Guessing it'll be Beyond for the music.
  8. That was pretty close to a look KYW had...in 2002.
  9. That ain’t a knock-off. It’s the real deal from the FTS Graphics Hub. Also not the first time they’ve helped out a non-O&O either. Though what they did have before was definitely serviceable for that market.
  10. I always suspected it would be the FTN set - barring staffing it makes you wonder why they didn't launch right from DC out of the gate. Given the short tenure of Jeff Glor vs. the expectations set for Norah, months and even weeks do matter here.
  11. So FOX 29 was knocked off the air Saturday AM for several hours because of a power outage / underground fire right near their studios. They've been doing the news from the streetside studio ever since. Wonder if their videowall-heavy studio got damaged from some kind of power surge?
  12. More and more companies are producing web-exclusive content. There are less and less sources of ad revenue online unless you want to become a video portal, which I suspect a market like Fargo can't support. Forum wants to be paid for the content they create, and I can't totally blame them. I think you'll see a point soon where some of the online-only newscasts become paywall'd--and so many are now used to receiving content for free that it's going to be a PAINFUL adjustment on both ends. The ones that are providing free content are hanging on by a thread. There will need to be a wa
  13. Honestly, that second VH knock off is pretty decent.
  14. It's not totally out of the question despite the long run. That seems like a series a decent chunk of audience would pick up Disney+ for.
  15. It's a great subnet - but it heavily relied on the CBS library for content, and even though the release indicates they'll still air programming from that library, I do wonder if that'll change--or we'll see more classic 20th Century FOX programming in the mix. Probably overthinking since Disney owns a lot of that library now though.
  16. It's better than the Raycom look - never thought that look was good to begin with, let alone aged well.
  17. TV will absolutely be around in 2041. Whether it will be a zombie industry like radio is another question. I think the length of a court battle largely depends on whose administration is in office when this all comes to a head. If Trump gets another four years and it's his FCC again, Sinclair probably gets away with murder. If it's, say, a type like Sanders or Warren, I could honestly see Sinclair just packing up shop. Anything in between probably gets murky.
  18. Don't see why Nexstar couldn't continue to own them unless they're really trying to get under the cap to keep PIX 11...
  19. I will say Tower makes for a better execution of that open.
  20. From the sounds of the FTVLive article, it sounds like FOX will pull affiliations for the whole group if they don't cough up Q13, which would leave them with some pretty gaping holes in a lot of places. Guessing cash will be involved.
  21. I know nothing about WJW - what's in Studio B where they couldn't have built the set there to begin with?
  22. I think once you cross the MD-VA border on the Delmarva, the VA side is considered the Eastern Shore and in the Hampton Roads DMA--or, at least, there's enough viewership there for the Hampton Roads stations to justify putting the Eastern Shore on their WX maps.
  23. Eek - those animations look super messy and cluttered...
  24. Yeah the more I think about it (and of course I won't list them here) there are definitely a few more than just WRAL - I suppose I single them out on account of them being so dominant and respected. Indisputable that the number is dwindling, however.
  25. I knew I'd forget someone - guess you can throw KOTV in the mix too. Wonder how long they'll all last...
