  1. I’m sure Shep wasn’t interested in sticking around after his show was cancelled, especially when CNN has a prime time slot that would be perfect for a known name. They might even be able to get him at a lower price since the only other major outlet who might be interested would be CBS. Hmm, maybe an Anderson Cooper like deal where he could be a correspondent on 60 Minutes?
  2. From the article: No shocker here - Nexstar gonna run it cheap. Probably already looking for sports willing to buy their airtime for weekend programming.
  3. Did NFL Network just stealth debut a new logo?
  4. This is probably more likely that the return of network branding. I do wonder if Nexstar will continue the old CW Plus feed/service - if that still exists.
  5. I'd be shocked if anything NewsNation ended up on the CW. Maybe a NN-branded magazine show for the weekend, at most.
  6. Honestly, why? The CW for those operators is likely on a secondary channel or HD subchannel and probably runs on automatic. Why blow that up over 14 hours of programming a week?
  7. Sounds like it will end up a combination of MyNetworkTV and Dabl - cheap DIY shows and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives ripoffs and the like, with some syndicated deals in the mix (hey, maybe they convince the rightsholders to move In The Heat of the Night and Blue Bloods here ). Maybe some small sports league will pony up some cash to buy time for games to be broadcast. Especially considering the content deal with Paramount and WBD is only for 2022-23 (though could be extended), I'm not expecting much from the new CW.
  8. That or a way to repeat hours more easily. Fox Weather sure seems very much in the experimental stage.
  9. Well, if barely anyone is going to watch it, might as well not pay as much to program it, I guess.
  10. 187,000 total viewers for The Chris Cuomo Interview. 14,000 in the 25-54 demo. https://www.mediaite.com/daily-ratings/cable-news-ratings-tuesday-july-26-lawrence-odonnell-leads-msnbc/
  11. If I was NewsNation, I would be hitting the NYC area hard in hopes there's enough people who might be interested. After all, he is a Cuomo. I can't for the life of me think of who those people are, but....
  12. That's easy, it'll never have breaking news. It's not live.
  13. This will be chasing the lawyer and political money - hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up with a segment sponsored by a sports book since that money was still flying around for a bit. This isn’t for ratings, it’s for revenue - and it’s a whole hour they control the ad slots. If it gets some eyeballs, great, but that’s lagniappe. And it also gives them “unique” content for the local CBS News steaming stations, which explains the branding.
  14. First episode and they already got a lawyer sponsorship? I think that should answer why CBS is doing this. Also gives something they can run on the CBSN locals that's not just a repeat of the local news.
  15. I’d wager a guess that since the Now casts graphics are CBSN-based, the new O&O graphics will probably look like them too.
  16. Gotta love the completely wrong CBS News Detroit logo in the press release:
  17. Website had one story posted during the event, don't think YT ever had anything, what Nexstar's affiliates were doing at the time has no bearing on this conversation (except that NN had WGN right there) and it's not like they haven't pre-empted the midday syndication before to break in. There's literally zero reason for NewsNation to have stuck with reruns outside of they weren't staffed for the holiday to do this, which again makes no sense. Whomever was working WGN that day should've had the ability to go live on NN with the coverage. If you're getting annoyed with the conversation around NewsNation, be upset at them or block this thread so you don't see it.
  18. Changing my IP around via Surfshark, I found WeatherNation versions for New York, Boston, Atlanta and Chicago on PlutoTV, so this is definitely a thing.
  19. The app just has the same maps/forecasts/etc. as you would see on their website or other similar smart TV apps (except for whatever happened to the Apple TV TWC app, which is worthless these days). Here's a good breakdown of the "new" Weather Channel TV App, which appears to just be their previous TV Everywhere-enabled app (for anything except, again, Apple TV) with the ability to pay directly for access to their TV stream: https://thestreamable.com/news/the-weather-channel-launches-new-dtc-service-the-weather-channel-tv-app
  20. Yes, this new service is basically making the TV stream available for purchase to those who don't have access through their current provider.
  21. Why would they take off paid programming? That’s probably one of big ways those secondary stations make any money.
  22. That’s using the same setup as Pattrn’s (the OTT version) national forecast, which predates Fox Weather.
  23. The less Chuck Todd the better, I always say!
  24. On the tweets from the conexiontconeltiempo twitter account, they have a watermark counting down to 5/2 for TWCE so that seems to confirm the date.
  25. TWC en Español could be a Local Now thing, or maybe the new deal on YTTV will include the service and they just haven’t announced yet. On another front, I wonder if the quick shutoff of CNN+ impacts the plan for TWC+ - wasn’t it supposed to have launched by now?
