  1. Thanks for posting these. I didn't realize how far KABC had fallen. KABC had been especially strong in the 6 a.m. hour . Do you have any numbers for the 7am hour?
  2. Agree with FiveNews. KTLA dominates in the morning and over the years has expanded its newscast to run 10 hours (4am-2pm). KTLA against KTTV and KCAL at 10p.m. is also #1. KTTV is a former shell of itself "ratings wise" and was much stronger and actually beat KTLA in the mornings and 10pm. slot in the early 2000s. KABC in the afternoons/evenings/11pm has continued to lead for many many years. Once in a while KNBC will pull out a win in one of those slots but they are generally always a competitive #2. KCBS trails badly in mornings/afternoons/evenings where they fall even behind KTLA and KTTV in many time slots. KCBS is most competitive at 11pm but i think that's due to the strength of the cbs primetime lineup but they generally are still #3 or even #4 (behind KTLA) at 11.
  3. I already see that Sandra Mitchell is filling in as anchor for the 10 pm news. Nice to see her behind the desk again.
  4. KTLA News Director Jason Ball announced that he is resigning from KTLA. He is believed to be staying through the February sweeps.
  5. Out of curiosity, what is the viewership numbers for Spectrum News 1 LA? Its not covered by Nielsen and have not seen any tangible numbers released by Spectrum comparing viewership numbers. Spectrum is only in about 1.25 million homes in the LA market so it would be a very tall order to be getting higher viewership numbers than NewsNation that is available to 75 million households. This means that 10% of spectrum users are turning into Spectrum News which is not happening.
  6. 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
  7. I live in Los Angeles and it shows NewsNation live at 5 - 8 pm and then again at 8 pm -11 pm.
  8. Just noticed that KTLA is now using the Nexstar layout.
  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. I'm sure once College Football ends, the news will expand to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. On KABC, when there are no sports premeptions, the evening news is on Sat and Sun from 4 - 5:30 pm and 6 - 6:30 pm.
