  1. Define ratings disaster? What was 2 1/2 Men getting rating wise compared to this? Since this is a local program, all advertising revenue goes to the station and is probably cheap to produce so it doesn't need nearly as good ratings as expensive syndicated programming like 2 1/2 Men
  2. I live in Los Angeles and it shows NewsNation live at 5 - 8 pm and then again at 8 pm -11 pm.
  3. KCAL has also been running commercials.
  4. Interesting. I found KTTV coverage poor on Friday. They had no coverage at 10:30 pm. They ran their news special as always on Friday nights. However, they seem to be better on Saturday.
  5. I have not seen it on my television yet, but KTLA's streaming site now lists a KTLA News at 12 (12pm - 1pm) newscast and a KTLA News at 7 (7pm-7:30pm) newscast. There was a note on the 5 Live Facebook page that until further notice the 5 Live streaming only newscasts have been moved from 12pm-1pm and 2pm-3pm to 4pm-6pm for the near future. I'm assuming these new newscasts started Monday, 3/16 and will be temporary to give additional coverage for the Coronavirus.
  6. Just noticed that KTLA is now using the Nexstar layout.
  7. KTLA has been producing podcasts for the past couple years. Right now they have 9 different podcasts- https://ktla.com/category/podcasts/
  8. Schedule change for KTLA. The Mel Robbins Show and Daily Mail TV have switched timeslots. Mel Robbins is now on at 4 PM and Daily Mail TV is on at 3 AM. Huge upgrade slot for Mel Robbins. This huge upgrade in market 2 alone could help Mel Robbins overall national numbers which have been soft even though its expected that she will get a second season.
  9. What I gather from the article is that their back of office/management is probably sloppy compared to how Nexstar runs things. I think KTLA had a lot of autonomy in how management ran the station and probably that was the case at most Tribune stations. Nexstar appears to run a much tighter ship with many corporate policies. My assumption is that KTLA probably has lax policies that Nexstar thinks need to be tightened. KTLA's on-air product isn't the issue as they have solid #1 ratings in almost all of their timeslots. I wouldn't expect a shakeup in talent as its currently stable and is working. The shakeup will come in the form of management.
  10. Well...KTLA and WGN both produce 12.5 hours of newscasts per weekday. Looks like WJW produces 11.5 hours, if you do count New Day Cleveland as news, then 12.5 hours. But KTLA produces 8.5/9.5 hours on Sat/Sun, more than WGN and WJW. As of now, KTLA holds the distinction of producing more local news than any other station in the country with 80.5 hours per week.
  11. I think the shift to a Sunday-Thursday rotation is more about higher viewing levels in general than getting higher ratings. Friday and Saturday nights are the lowest rated nights. So why put your main anchors on Fridays when tv viewership is overall lower.
  12. Yes they are. I thought that they would try to downgrade the timeslot for Jerry.
  13. Not good for The Mel Robbins Show. KTLA has scheduled the program at 3:05 AM. Interesting that KTLA has kept old Jerry Springer reruns at 2 PM.
  14. Just curious where you found the information because I have not been able to find any stating that Judge Jerry will be airing on KNBC or KCOP. Only thing I've seen is a press release from NBC Universal in November 2018 that Judge Jerry was picked up by Tribune Stations which included KTLA in Los Angeles.
  15. Where did you find that Judge Jerry will be on KNBC and KCOP? There was a few internet sources from November 2018 that said KTLA had picked up the show.
