  1. This was posted earlier in the thread, and was hidden by myself, as there was no confirmation, at that point. Here's the direct link to that post.
  2. For the first time in nearly 30 years, 'America's Favorite Quiz Show' is headed for a primetime run this winter. Jeopardy! champions Jennings, Rutter, and Holzhauer will face off over 3 to 7 nights (6 to 14 standard games) from January 7-10 & 14-16 on ABC, all dependent on how long it takes for one of the champions to reach 3 match wins (1 night = 1 match). Therefore, the 4 latter shows may not be necessary, almost like a postseason series in some sports. https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/news-events/who-greatest-jeopardy-player-all-time
  3. While it is overproduced to the point where it's hard to tell if it's live or prerecorded, WLS will be airing the Disney-heavy 'Magnificent Mile Lights Festival' on a 1-day delay, for what I believe is the first time. Instead of this Saturday at 6pm like in years past, it'll be first-run the following night, Sunday 11/24, preempting America's Funniest Home Videos. ABC's reconfigured Saturday Night Football schedule necessitated such a change. Lead anchors Alan Krashesky and Cheryl Burton host, with Janet Davies and anchor Rob Elgas on the street. I know it's syndicated out to other O&O's and ABC stations, so check your local listings...because I'm not. https://abc7chicago.com/society/magnificent-mile-lights-festival-/5689387/
  4. My favorite single-A minor league baseball team.
  5. This has been going on for years. They are no longer early, you are now late.
  6. Ratner's in his 70's, and is starting to decline a bit. I can't imagine that he'd be a viable long-term option, unless they'd want to do this all over again in a couple years.
  7. From that same account, a CLTV open from the late 90's, back when they were based in Oak Brook, IL, a decade before shacking up with WGN. Their former home, a business park, has since been torn down.
  8. I forgot that this existed, period, but I'm questioning the date, as Allison Rosati would've lead co-anchor, by that point. Why/how would she be doing a 10am show?
  9. Animation and the like matter, but I don't hate that, in the least.
  10. There are a lot of unknowns with the former Trib stations. WGN is seen as a great place, but who knows what cuts are coming, and what environment is beyond the horizon? Besides, while I'm a little surprised WMAQ made it into the top 10, there were already 2 Chicago stations on the list. Honestly, WLS at the top serves 2 purposes; it's a model operation within the well-regarded ABC O&O group, and the model of stability in a no-nonsense, competitive market.
  11. It's this year's image branding. It's not a new logo replacing anything.

    1. Google it. KHOU and KPRC are not O&O's. 2. KABC, KGO, and KFSN have differently-colored versions of the same graphics. KTRK's is a different package, period. More 3D effects, different opens, different lower thirds.

    Out & About

    Yes, and yes, though I'd hardly say KTRK and KGO have much in common.
  14. Content is key, of course, but THIS ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE. Nice nod by TEGNA and station leadership, for once.
