  1. Looks like 5th hour of Today isn’t pulling the numbers Days did.
  2. I can’t imagine an ABC O&O rolling out a cluster like this. Imagine if Disney wasn’t forced to divest KCAL when it bought CapCities. Eyewitness News is a recognizable brand. Eyewitness News on ABC7 and Eyewitness News on KCAL9. What CBS is doing now isn’t that different than their attempt with the Newscentral branding. It’s just CBS never sticks with anything.
  3. KNTV never was able to settle on a number (3/11). WVIT is 30. It’s a bit different with KPIX 5.
  4. I don’t think shuttering the CNN Center in Atlanta helps much with WBD’s mission to change CNN’s perceived liberal bias. I think the better move would be to move dayside operations out of the east and west coast bubbles and back to Atlanta. Leave the evening talk shows in NY and LA, but the rest should return to Atlanta.
  5. I stand corrected. Still her departure seemed out of left field.
  6. Has anything more come to light about Monica’s abrupt departure? It was strange that there was no on-air send off considering her tenure with the station.
  7. How is this not 2/9 Newscentral all over again?
  8. I only caught the tail end of David Muir’s interview, but was taken back by the manipulative, melodramatic score playing under the interview.
  9. There’s no female at 11–it’s the old white man show. Taking KD back to its pre-Patti days.
  10. What a dumb move it was canning Susan Koeppen.
  11. Good Lord, bring back the Group W 2. is there anyone recognizable left at KD besides Ken Rice and Pompeani?
  12. KCAL ought to pick him up for their new morning show.
  13. Didn’t ABC see erosion across the whole day part with the cancellation of AMC and OLTL? I think it’s a lot like NBC putting Megan Kelly on at 9. It pulled downed the the fourth hour’s numbers. Just like Jay Leno at 10 p.m.
  14. I doubt NBC affiliates are happy with the show coming in dead last in daytime. I doubt the producing two hours or news for three-quarters of a million less viewers is a cost effective as you think.
  15. Yeah, right—that’s when the Wendy Bell fiasco when down on 1020 no one called the tv station… oh wait…
  16. With a station like KCNC, that really hasn’t had a stable brand, there’s really nothing to lose with CBS’ latest branding scheme. But for a station with stability and a known local brand, it doesn’t. I know there some that think KDKA isn’t special, but there is a joke about the visitor to Pittsburgh who asks who “Katie Kaye” is because they keeping hearing Katie Kaye (KDKA) said…
  17. That’s peak PVI—Jim, Marc & Lisa, Gary, Dave, Cathy and Nora
  18. I’m not a fan of the black and gold graphics but when it comes to ratings—compared to WCBS, KCBS, and WBBM—KDKA is special.
  19. I think the real problem facing KDKA the talent exodus it’s suffered over the last few years. The few times I had KD on, it’s looked like an intern’s demo tape.
  20. It’s hard to have a talent open when you don’t have any stability. Things have stabilized at WCBS, but for time people were coming and going or being reshuffled every other book.
  21. I hope they open it up again—go back to open newsroom.
  22. I wondered if NBC News Daily was just a placeholder—like the window of opportunity to shift Days to streaming opened and they had to do it in that timeframe. The success of the Beyond Salem series had to contribute to the decision. The unfortunate thing for OLTL and AMC was streaming was really in its infancy when Prospect Park made their attempt.
  23. CBS oughta check in with the brain trust at Macy’s about how well standardization works.
  24. It blows my mind to think you’d want to take these legacy Group W stations—market leaders with recognizable brands—and fold them into a network news brand that has been the bottom dweller for probably close to 40 years.
  25. I’m pretty sure that none of the shows that replaced AMC, OLTL, or ATWT get the ratings of their predecessors. Meanwhile Days of Our Lives’ third Peacock spinoff drops this summer.
