  1. Oh, so Divorce Court is coming back to WAGA (they have aired it before and the '60s and '80s versions prior to that) after a few years on WPCH...and as a lead-in to Judge Judy?! There goes all those plans about a 4:00 news! 25 Words or Less will occupy 12:30 am, and Mario Lopez will still be seen here at 2:00 am...as the new host of Access Hollywood still on WAGA. WXIA remains unchanged, and I’m leaving my home state of Alaska alone (though if I can guess, KTUU will have Kelly Clarkson).
  2. Yeah, what were they thinking?! This is the same WSB who five years ago slotted Meredith Vieira at that very same 2:00 am before she moved to WUPA, and the same WSB who, according to old listings from the Journal-Constitution, carried the ill-fated 1990 Tic Tac Dough reboot...also at 2:00 am (while WAGA had The Joker’s Wild and Trump Card and WXIA, The Challengers all at the 9:00 am hour)!!! No wonder why I call them The Notorious WSB because they are notorious for scheduling promising shows in shitty timeslots...in addition to their unneeded preemptions once a month! And yes, 25 Words or Less tested very well to be given 3:00 pm on WAGA though for right now, they’re testing Punch Line at 12:30 am in the hopes of following suit. But after it’s all said and done, WGCL will have the last laugh as the new Atlanta home for Dr. Oz.
  3. Well...after all this talk, I was DEAD WRONG about Kelly Clarkson on WAGA; it’s WSB who’ll have her...at 2:00 AM!!! That means 3:00 pm is now open for WAGA; they could move Judge Judy to that slot and launch a 4:00 pm news opposite WSB and WGCL (I can see Russ Spencer and Portia Bruner anchoring), but for right now, their lips are sealed.
  4. I have yet to see any promos for confirmation of Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson on WSB and WAGA respectively, though we already know about Judge Jerry on WATL. Nancy O'Dell leaving Entertainment Tonight comes as a surprise; like I said before; the show has never been the same since Mary Hart retired, which reminds me...do they have Maria Sansone's number on speed-dial somewhere (she's been doing mostly local TV for a few years now)???
  5. And back to the L.A. Emmys: There are also no individual honors; Investigative Reporter, for example, would've went to David Goldstein (KCBS). And here's who's up for the News and Documentary Emmys on September 24 (yes, 24 hours after the Primetime Emmys!); PBS as usual leads with 47 nominations followed by CBS (33) and HBO (32). For the two regional categories, Tegna has four nods (WXIA, KING, WTSP, KPNX) while WNBC, KXAS, and KNTV have one apiece for the NBC O&Os.
  6. The 71st Los Angeles Emmys (aka the flagship regional Emmys, since the Television Academy is headquartered in L.A.) were held Saturday night (7/27); KCET was the big winner with six followed by KMEX, KTLA, and KVEA with five apiece. The Big Four affiliates saw KNBC and KTTV picking up two Emmys each; KABC and KCBS, both with one. But if there were News or Overall Excellence honors, KMEX and KCET would've easily won those respectively.
  7. Simply because ABC primetime on WSB is getting stale, as next season’s will be Modern Family’s last and Grey’s Anatomy is way past it’s used-by date. But as the host station, Super Bowl LIII definitely helped WGCL, so they could settle for #3 among households with WAGA dominating the 18-49s over WSB.
  8. And Jennifer Valdez (who succeeded Ossmann) has proved herself to be a break from Burns, Chandley , and Holcomb. My hunch is come November sweeps, WGCL will be battling with WAGA for #2, thanks to a strong CBS primetime.
  9. Winners' list from the Pacific Southwest Emmys (covering mostly San Diego and Las Vegas) June 18 in Las Vegas.
  10. Actually, seven years; the crash to #3 came after Dan exchanged verbal fisticuffs with George H.W. Bush in 1988.
  11. Yeah, eat it, WSB! Speaking of which...I don’t think they ever put out a May 2019 ratings report, given that WGCL and WAGA have been eating into their audience lately.
  12. WJAR investigative reporter Jim Taricini dies at age 69
  13. While Stateside, ESPN2 and NBA TV were taking CTV/TSN (no one couldn’t find the Citytv feed). CBC's (with Peter Mansbridge taking part; why couldn't CTV get Lloyd Robertson?) and Global's were of course on YouTube.
  14. This is the time of year when stations and other outlets all from over the country get rewarded with Emmys, and I felt that it's best we should devote a single thread to them. Here are the winners from last night's (6/15) Southeast Emmys; WXIA as usual took the most haul with 36 including News Excellence and Overall Excellence, but lost Daily Newscast to WSB. WGCL also won big. The New England Emmys were also last night; World News Tonight anchor David Muir was presented with the Governors' Award while WCVB took home nine awards followed by WFXT with eight. Last weekend, the Northwest Emmys were held; in a surprise, Overall Excellence went to KTUU. And this past week, nominations were announced for the Los Angeles Emmys on July 27 (which are considered to be the flagship of all regional Emmy awards); KMEX leads the way with 22 nods followed by KCET (19). Among the more traditional outlets, KNBC has nine. By the way...unlike all others, the Southeast Emmys weren't livestreamed anywhere, which is a shame. But I know there were already or are others like these to come.
  15. Don’t forget CBC (on both CBC-TV and CBC News Network) and Global! Stateside, ESPN and probably NBA TV will broadcast it as well; unsure which feeds they’ll borrow.
