  1. Ask and ye shall receive... https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/239374/fcc-approves-kdlt-purchase-by-gray/
  2. I think one station each market should have a Talkback 16. You know that segment was a set of $#!t from the start, lets face it. It was brilliant...
  3. I was wondering what's up with Tony. During the WPLJ Radio Reunion in May, the day before it signed off, there were mentions of Tony being an alumnus of the station but couldn't make it to Reunion Day. Both 'PLJ + LIVE are based in NYC, but i'm not sure where he lives. You'd think if he was in the area, he'd make it there, but that said it raises such warning signs though. God forbid this isn't another Chris Corley or Ed Hopkins.
  4. Don't know if it was mentioned before but apparently since this past january, KBS News 9, the premier nightly newscast for the South Korean based service, changed its popular signature tune after 26 years. Its new theme debuted New Years' day. 1st ('92) theme 2008 Update (thru 12/31/18) 2019 New theme + New graphics. The new theme is quite 'CBS Evening News'-ish, especially toward the end. Don't fret though, the aforementioned old theme ACTUALLY got an update, but it seems like it's used as a bumper for the newscast. At 0:00, 0:33 + 0:49.
  5. Gotta share this sweet story to this beautiful era ending. Back in 2013, I went to the station's town hall meeting. It was at the Brooklyn museum in the auditorium. After the event, the participants took time to take photos with the audience. I was courageous enough to approach Diana for the photo + she was accommodating enough to do so. Afterwards, she said to effect of 'it's so nice to see Someone as handsome as you are'. I said 'Oh thank you'. Off I go, shell shocked a bit. You're talking about someone who you've watched for years + complimenting you as such. I'm not the one fishing for complements mind you. In the blurry photo below from my fb, my hair looked like wooly mammoth in a big explorer coat (it was February + I was bigger then) Now one may have said it just to butter up someone, coming from tv, but knowing her demeanor + class, it matched with her coming from a good place. It leaves a mark on my mind forever. That in part is how I'll remember Diana + I wish her nothing but the best. WABC has raised the standard of personnel farewells like the late great WPLJ raised the standard of signoffs this past may. Side note: one other photo I tried to take was investigative reporter Jim hoffer. As I was setting up my cheap ass Kodak vid shaped 'hd' camera to shoot, battery ran out + I told him as such + he said, 'ah shit, man'. Nonetheless meeting him briefly was a pleasure. Such a good night.
  6. Congratulations to Zap2it + OnTVTonight for getting this right ( i would extend that to TVGuide to an extent, despite listed as 'FOX 5 News at Noon') FOX 5 is finally doing something at the midday/noon space for the first time in a while for a change.
  7. The Noon Show or, wait for it..."FOX 5 News at Noon"? Both OnTvTonight and TV Guide has their listings reported as the latter title, suggesting the noon newscast returns, eventually coming into fruition. https://www.ontvtonight.com/guide/listings/channel/69022188/wnyw-hdtv.html?dt=2019-09-09 https://www.tvguide.com/listings/?ServiceID=76164 (if it doesn't list nyc listings where you at, you can change)
  8. No, not other shows that are replacing it, I meant why they haven't picked up STEVE to add to its schedule, some of them instead are still relying on TMZ/Dish Nation/EXTRA/Access Reruns, treating it as a waste of space in the afternoons where they could do that late fringe.
  9. Apparently Right This Minute appears to be unceremoniously fully dropped by ABC O&Os by 9/9. Tamron Hall will rerun on late nights in their (and cancelled millionaire RRs) time slots, according to Zap2it + Titantv. RTM's website doesn't listed ABC O&Os times either in the updated listings page, which I first found out + triggered as warning such. If that doesn't show ABC's confidence in Tamron, what does? That or is it more like ABC shedding lightweight? Co-exist much? Slight update: WPIX lists Maury 3x at 9a, 10a + 3p on 9/9. The 9a of course is a holdover for Mel Robbins on 9/16, thus will reduce back to 2x. CW's airing of Springer moves to 1p from 3p. True Crime Files will be retained but will air at 3a, erasing the suggested Sanford + Son RRs.
  10. Another one bites the dust....in the MyNetworkTV branding files. Say bye felicia to My65 + hello to FOX 35 Plus in Orlando. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment/tv-guy/os-et-fox-35-to-rebrand-sister-station-add-newscast-20190830-efonnfd4xvhtjcxjouckt3cnjm-story.html
  11. From Gotham City incoming 9/9. Source: Zap2it WCBS: No changes anywhere. WNBC: Access Daily (formerly Access LIVE) at 1p, Kelly Clarkson at 2p, Newly minted Access Hollywood at 7p, All Access at 7:30p WNYW: The Noon at 12p (no word what that show entails), TMZ RR at 2p (replacing DISH nation RR), ExtraExtra RR at 2:30p (replacing caught in providence RR) (actually 9/10 as FOX Fall preview will air its place one time) along with its 1st run at 7p (replacing Pagesixtv) I still don't get why FOX o&os didn't pick up Steve Harvey talk show, but i'll digress. Man has a lot on the plate to deal, including expanding Family Feud to Africa, which he'll be host there. https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/fremantle-steve-harvey-to-bring-family-feud-to-africa Big Bang Theory moves its 7:30p airing from WWOR to WNYW, bumping 1 run off Modern Family, which will unify with its 12a run for 1hr. WABC: Tamron Hall at 10a bumps off Rachel Ray to 2p replacing Millionaire + 1st run RTM. Assuming Right This Minute airs for 1 hr at 1:35a after EWN 11p encore. WWOR: Speaking of PageSix, Its last lap appears to be that week. It'll air at 6:30p for 1 wk holding over for 25 words or less, which debuts 9/16. Family Feud bumps off for 1/2 hr + airs from 7-8p, directly competing against J! + Wheel on WABC. THAT. WILL. BE. FUN! The simpsons at 11:30p for 1 wk before ExtraExtra RR. Live PD police patrol replaces Dr. OZ RR at 1a. WPIX: Judge Jerry at 12p, which bumps off Couples Court to 11a replacing Springer. According zap2it, not only True Crimes Files remains at 1p but also NEW, so it appears to return for this fall. Comedy remains status quo, except 9/2-3 Sanford + son + the jeffersons, both already in their saturday runs on PIX are holdovers 3:30-4:30a. The earlier replaces Rules of Engagement, which FINALLY leaves every bit of syndication! 9/9-10 has Sanford + son expand for 1 hr. Of course Mel Robbins debuts 9/16 at 9a, which will reduce Maury to a single airing. BTW Full Court Press with Greta Van susteren debuts 9/8 at 7a after PIX11 Uplcose with Marvin Scott. WLNY: Bear with me for a minute. It appears both Corrupt crimes + Killer Mysteries are leaving the sked, so may I present to you its replacement to the 8a hour: The Dr. and the Diva. Had to research what that was. Here's the demo, viewer's beware: Oh how the mighty have fallen, Dr Steve Salvatore. But Hey there Kimberly Locke, long time no see. This ain't it though. And here I was thinking they're replacing the doctors with that? Since when stage 29 got THAT cheap? Anyway, in the mornings, Forensic Files (now 6:30a) replaces Paternity Court RR at 5a, which bumps to 6a, bumping off Supreme Justice 2nd run to 6:30a. That could be holdover because Protection Court is listed for 6:30a. Also for some reason, Jerry Springer lives on....at 9a on 'LNY. Only that station can explain why. It replaces Cheaters, whose recent host (grandson of clark gable) died of accidental overdose in February at age 30. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2019/04/18/medical-examiner-clark-gables-grandson-died-overdose/3513225002/ Last Man Standing pulls out of late night + holds over at 5p for Personal Injury Court debut on 9/16. Though it first replaces Face the truth at that time. It'll return back to late night at 1a + 4a, which that week earlier will be informercials. Family Guy goes 2x at 2a, latter replaces American Dad. Bob's burgers goes daily 2x at 3a, replacing King of the hill + The cleveland show. And that's the update thus far...Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
  12. 'Couples Court', 'Paternity Court' and 'Personal Injury Court' (most basic lengthy title ever + promo is outrageous enough) are all under one umbrella with updated air times you can view it for your market below their sites. https://couplescourttv.com/ https://paternitycourt.tv https://personalinjurycourttv.com For New York: Paternity Court - 5a, 1-2p WLNY Couples Court - 11a-12p WPIX (if you could figure out the PIX fall sked, that replaces the cancelled Springer there as Judge Jerry takes over the 12p slot. It may also mean Maury would air once each day instead of 2x. Assuming True crime files return, PIX daytime will have a different program each hour from 9a-5p. When was the last time THAT happened?) Personal Injury Court - 5-6p WLNY (replacing Face the truth) Protection Court - 6:30a WLNY On another note, the TV Bailiff who appeared on 'Cristina's Court' (20th TV) + 'Justice for All with Cristina Perez' (ES.TV) helm by the same TV Judge was charged with the murder of his wife. The real life deputy of a texas sheriff + part time actor claims that he accidentally shot her after struggling to take away is weapon. https://www.insideedition.com/justice-all-bailiff-charged-murder-claims-he-accidentally-shot-wife-54883
  13. I've been watching retrospective clips on WTVH syracuse. What a station in this land that truly fell from grace. Curse Granite forever, how that still exists I don't know (should've folded the time they sold KOFY TV in SF) Mind you the abandoned building they've had for yrs still stand. I know it still 'exists' as CBS 5 News but that's like the same team who does sister station WSTM 3 thru simulcast. Can anyone recall such fall from grace similar to 'TVH? This next clip is heartbreaking front + back. Including near the end with Photo Montage is WTVH's 'You've got a friend' Jingle from Gari (with extended and other cuts) Included in the clips below include Kathy Orr, Tracy Davidson, Lee Goldberg, Mike Tirico, Adam Zucker + of course David Muir. Al Roker is in the clip above.
  14. If i'm not mistaken, WSB aired Meredith Vieira show around 2am so maybe they're the indicator on what succeeds or not since both WSB + WPXI placed Kelly clarkson show late night or it's just coincidence. And Atlanta + Pittsburgh are no small okie-dokie towns either but I digress. At the end of the day, yes it's risky to launch a talk show these days, but if you have the money + talent to test, you have gravitas to pull the trigger + see what happens next. Tamron Hall has potential to halt the curse of short lived corpses, but coming from Disney-ABC, since Katie, that remains to be seen. Ditto on Kelly. Re: "All Access" the new Access Half hour show, this feels rushed, no? The description detailing the human interest + crime stories + headlines felt like it was the launch of another tabloid news show. Rather than launching 7pm news in some O&O markets, that idea detailed above probably passed to those at Access + they ran away it, so...
  15. WAWS (now WFOX) report on the CBS affiliation switch from WJXT to WTEV (now WJAX) in 2002. At the time Ch. 47 was UPN (that affiliation moved to ch. 30 after the switch, with primetime airing at 11pm after the news)
