  1. They may as well be a cable TV company. All they need is a 24-hour weather channel. "Yo, I heard you like cable systems, so I got you a cable system for your cable system."
  2. My interpretation of the announcement is that the crime shows are being added to Investigation Discovery, likely allowing WBD to either flip HLN into something different or vacate the channel space altogether. (If it's the latter, I hope AMC Networks tries to get BBC World News in there.)
  3. I was wondering when Licht was going to start making changes to HLN. Not sure what the point of simulcasting CNN This Morning is, though, especially since I suspect the two channels are side-by-side on most cable systems.
  4. I’m interested in the results in Connecticut. I know WFSB is traditionally first place, but where do WTNH, WVIT, and WTIC place?
  5. The @CBS account hasn't posted a new tweet since Thursday night, so I can believe it applying to more than just the news division.
  6. And everyone at KSAZ breathes a sigh of relief.
  7. By virtue of being the largest media market, I would imagine.
  8. Wasn't it already a revival?
  9. I hope that doesn't result in Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy being canceled.
  10. I wonder if Nexstar will change the network's name since it'll clearly be a very different beast from what it's been. Then again, we live in a world where BBC America mostly shows American movies and cop shows and the Travel Channel mostly shows shows about ghosts, so...
  11. Except, of course, that it won't be called Peacock. It'll be called NBC. (Okay, maybe NBC+.)
  12. If NBC wants to make this move work, they'll need to start putting new shows on Saturday nights again and not just use it for repeats and Dateline.
  13. I could see Nightline moving to that hour.
  14. A better question: 3. When do we think they'll blow up HLN and turn it into something that isn't 79% true crime shows?
  15. The only Tegna stations I can see any of the networks being interested in are those in the largest markets -- WFAA, KHOU, WUSA, and WXIA.
  16. *reads the article* Mmmm... Someone's feeling desperate. Another option: Be acquired by Hearst and also shove Soo Kim and Standard General to the curb. (That said, Tegna may be too big for Hearst to absorb even after divesting stations in conflict markets.)
  17. So the FCC has to be okay with this merger and all its issues just because Soo Kim isn't white? I don't think that's how it works...
  18. They would just have to get creative -- starting with using more of the 52 weeks in a year.
  19. I can't help but think that maybe NBC should test the waters on one or two nights of the week before committing to this big a change for all seven nights. Friday and Saturday nights would be a good place to start.
