  1. I have the O&Os from the top 4 markets on my device. Since summer 2020, I infrequently watch only the morning newscasts on all, and the quality is really good. I stick to WPVI, and saw the streaming replays of previous broadcasts around Jim Gardner's final 11pm broadcast. I've watched sometimes ever since, but I asked myself then what took them so long.
  2. Wolf Blitzer will anchor a primetime program titled The Newscast with Wolf Blitzer. According to the network, it will be “hitting the headlines you need to know on this traditional evening news show with a sleek, modern twist. The old-school nostalgic approach featuring original reporting from around the world, investigations, and consumer focused stories that matter help put the latest headlines in perspective.” He will continue anchor The Situation Room on CNN proper.
  3. That's nice. No thanks, I don't want to; I gave it a rest hours ago. I just wanted to finish my piece and move on. If you do, fine. I apologize that you felt that way.
  4. Whatever, bud. Good to know. I admit yes, and that's my fault; apparently twice is often to you, but no that's not the reason. And you too have a nice day.
  5. Okay, you relax. Not everyone does 2.5 hour TV news shifts every weeknight. That's the thing. And that's also commonplace. I didn't see a big deal or difference either until earlier. That's just my opinion. I'm done here.
  6. I will say again, I said two hours a night. Mornings is one completely different thing. Since Jim and Jackie does more, that's their prerogatives. But I'm referring to Rick. Don't put words in my mouth.
  7. It was mentioned at the end of the show.. He said he'll be back from time to time to cameo. Sorry, I should've made that clear in my last post. I mean why should he stay at 10pm? I wouldn't want to spend more than 2 hours to a night if I were him.
  8. The announcement of Rick as new 11pm anchor was mentioned at the end of the 10pm earlier tonight. I'm very happy for Rick, and he's very deserving as Jim's successor. Now, I'm very curious about who'll succeed him at 10pm.
  9. Jeez. While the logo with the city's name looks great and inviting, the initialism isn't... well, the Queen's English. If I lived there, I'd hate to have that represent it, me and the other residents, even if it's supposed to be innocuous instead of provocative.
  10. Not if citizens of either city never knew it beforehand. Not that they'd care much if they did.
  11. We have a sneak peek at the new set of the soon-to-be-rebranded-CBS News. 938557305_Screen_Recording_20211225-191034_VideoPlayer_1.mp4
  12. I'm honestly very excited for the revival of WWJ's news operation and will be watching during its first week. I don't know where things go from there within it and this new era of CBS News Local, but I'll keep an open mind as all this (along with the details) makes me even more excited.
  13. The Dr. Oz Show will end production on January 14 as the titular host will focus solely on his PA Senate run.
  14. Crap, that gives you pause doesn't it? ABC dodged a major bullet.
  15. Good for him. I wish him the best and I hope he has much better, more content and less volatile tenure with CNN+ as his former employer becomes an even more dark cloud of intentional embellishments, falsehoods and misinformation.
  16. Great news! I love her personality during her reports. I'm sure they'll update the recent promos to add her in.
  17. The Wendy Williams Show will continue to have guest hosts into the new year.
  18. Looks suitable for (yet worse than) those sets for a news sketch on Saturday Night Live.
  19. Brian Taff will be filling in on Good Morning America this weekend. https://www.facebook.com/100044571123351/posts/455630839265950/
  20. Here's Jim's on-air message to the viewers at the end of tonight's 6pm news: https://www.facebook.com/9335481377/posts/10158902974646378/
  21. Wow, this hits hard. It's going to be a completely different landscape in market #4 without Jim. He absolutely earned and deserves his retirement after over four decades as Philadelphia's most trusted and beloved news anchor, but I personally will miss him on my TV screen every weekday evening.
  22. Zaslav gave his comments on his plans for running WB-D at Paley Center for Media's online International Council Summit. Among them, he says he'll be "very hands on" while based in L.A. and calls CNN rival Fox News an "advocacy network, not a news network".
  23. I rarely ever watched ESPN Classic, but I do remember watching reruns of American Gladiators and Celebrity Bowling during their brief runs on the network in the late 2000s and 2010, and enjoying the heck out of them. It's been a long time since I watched ESPN Classic, but I still feel pretty sad about this news and whenever I watched, it was a real good network for its format.
