  1. Former ABC News correspondent and CNN and later WSB-TV anchor Don Farmer dies at age 82.
  2. WGCL is fine where they are (proof that WSB is slipping a bit); their sister stations in Phoenix, Kansas City, St. Louis, Hartford, etc. are also doing well.
  3. Nothing from Atlanta, though Portia Bruner said on her Instagram that WAGA is now #1 at noon (followed by WSB, WGCL, and WXIA). But other than that...WGCL remained a solid third, especially at 4:00 now that WAGA has joined the party. WXIA is still strong at the 7:00 hour, with Jeopardy! (and their slew of guest hosts carrying on Alex Trebek’s legacy) beating ET and The Big Bang Theory in the 18-49s.
  4. I can actually see the ABC O&Os getting People (since all others already have ET, Access Hollywood, and Extra), meaning the only open slot available would be after Nightline.
  5. Hate to bump this thread, but we do have one more race to go: The two runoff races here in Georgia that will decide control of the Senate. WAGA are the only ones locally with full-blown coverage at 8:00 pm (preempting "Gordon Ramsay's American Road Trip" to 1:00 am), while WXIA has an election special at 10:00 pm (simulcast of course on sister station WATL); WSB and WGCL, nothing, though their late news may be extended to an hour in case of any speeches. Nationally, Lester Holt, David Muir, and Norah O'Donnell will probably do their newscasts from Atlanta on Tuesday; an
  6. Just saw a Sony Pictures Television logo at the end of People, which means they probably have found themselves a syndicator (which also means expansion to more markets in 2021, especially the biggies like New York, L.A., and Chicago).
  7. Inside Edition is on sister station WPCH at 10:00 pm (its fifth station in Atlanta; WSB had it for awhile in the 2000's). And yes, ET is definitely not the same ET as it was back in the day, which is why we have other places to go to for the kind of entertainment news they used to cover. Access Hollywood? It ain't leaving WAGA anytime soon.
  8. Nah; Wheel and Jeopardy are fine where they are on WXIA, and besides...they’ve been beating Dish Nation/TMZ (WAGA), People/Big Bang Theory (WGCL), and Family Feud (WUPA) while ET on WSB is completely unwatchable. Hell, WSB should do a program swap with WUPA like they did with WXIA on the networks side: ET moving to WUPA (40 years on WSB is long enough) with Feud now on WSB!
  9. I would assume Jeopardy's ratings increased in November in many markets after Alex Trebek's death (hope they finally beat ET here in Atlanta).
  10. I'm sure that trend will continue next year now that WITI is a Fox O&O once again (and perhaps the only one to collect the most Emmys).
  11. Meanwhile...Pioneer PBS (North Dakota) won six; Twin Cities PBS and Iowa PBS, four apiece.
  12. And now that three of the four Atlanta stations will have news at 4:00, it’s safe to say that WXIA won’t be sacrificing Ellen DeGeneres ever (or even moving her to WATL), as she’s been doing very well despite the recent troubles. The expansion also means Judge Judy now at 3:00 and 3:30, with Divorce Court now at 2:30 am (after Access Hollywood).
  13. Guess I was right all along about WAGA joining WSB and WGCL with news from 4:00 to 7:00 (now that Judge Judy will be ending after this season): https://www.nexttv.com/news/waga-atlanta-expands-430-pm-news
