  1. Set is slick, smooth and superb. I really like it. Great job, all involved.
  2. Vanna White is staying on with Wheel of Fortune as cohost for the next two seasons (through the 43rd [2025-26]), along with a sweet pay raise. https://deadline.com/2023/09/vanna-white-wheel-of-fortune-new-deal-season-41-pat-sajak-1235550608/
  3. If y'all think one of Byron Allen's shows airing for short time on one broadcast network is either a cause for alarm or a giant joke (or both LBH), then you'll get a big kick out of Allen himself showing interest in buying another broadcast network-- ABC (along with FX and National Geographic). https://tvline.com/news/abc-byron-allen-sale-talks-fx-national-geographic-disney-1235043961/
  4. Meteorologist Rob Marciano is leaving GMA Weekend. He'll still work for ABC, and will be succeeded by Somara Theodore. https://tvline.com/news/rob-marciano-leaving-good-morning-america-weekend-edition-meteriologist-1235042885/
  5. In either case: not anymore it will. DWTS will now air on Tuesdays this season. So much for that then. https://deadline.com/2023/09/dancing-with-the-stars-tuesdays-fall-jamie-lynn-spears-joins-cast-1235543907/
  6. Byron Allen's Comics Unleashed is expanding from CBS local (and the rest of first-run syndication) to CBS proper for a limited time only, starting September 18. https://deadline.com/2023/09/comics-unleashed-with-byron-allen-cbs-late-night-1235543726/
  7. Chuck Todd officially bid farewell from Meet the Press at the end of this week's edition, and made great mention of his successor Kristen Welker, saying she'll approach the Moderator role "as a reporter". https://deadline.com/2023/09/chuck-todd-meet-the-press-sign-off-1235542336/
  8. Drew Barrymore has more in store with season four on September 18.
  9. He had a great track record with the BBC & NYT from what I've read. I wish Mr. Thompson the best in reversing and improving CNN's fortunes. From what we've seen on- and off-air recently, they're gonna need all the goodwill they can get.
  10. Whenever I was sick at home during my elementary and middle school years, The Price is Right was one of my favorite shows to watch. With his natural charisma, sharp wit, electric personality and almost-instant icon status, he was one of the reasons (if not the main reason) I watched and why the show was (and still is) an enduring hit of American television and touchstone of American popular culture. He (like Betty White) at 99 lived a long, beautiful life that will forever live on through his incredible career, the show and both of their enduring legacies. Condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.
  11. CNN will have a bigger presence on Max with a 24/7 live stream of the US and International channels (excluding some programs) and new programming. CNN Max launches with an "open beta" on September 27. https://deadline.com/2023/08/cnn-max-streaming-news-warner-bros-discovery-1235526959/
  12. Premiere date for People Puzzler: September 11. https://deadline.com/2023/08/leah-remini-people-puzzler-syndicated-game-show-fall-premiere-date-1235525036/
  13. The Conners is finally coming to syndication. "Tom Werner’s Werner Entertainment, the production company behind ABC’s popular comedy series The Conners, has signed a global licensing deal with Lionsgate’s Worldwide Television Distribution Group and Debmar-Mercury to make past seasons of the sitcom available on streaming and in syndication." https://tvline.com/news/the-conners-how-to-watch-episodes-streaming-online-1235025344/
  14. Persoanlly, I honestly don't mind local morning newscasts in most markets going back to starting later. Most reports (outside of breaking news) that air at the 4am hour typically would be repeated during the rest of the broadcast anyway. And just because a lot of people wake up before 4am, that doesn't mean everyone does.
  15. Tucker Carlson has an official replacement in his old timeslot - Jesse Watters. (Laura Ingraham and Greg Gutfeld will move to earlier timeslots [the latter's to the former's] .) https://deadline.com/2023/06/fox-news-tucker-carlson-primetime-jesse-watters-laura-ingraham-1235424586/
  16. I really like the package. To me they impove on the last set, the L3s are great, and the addition of purple is well-utilized. I also hate that "Breaking News" is still used for first stories but it is what it is.
  17. Sherri Shepherd's show's second season starts September 18.
  18. Yep. I saw it with WPHL (very obvious yes) back when Nexstar confirmed their majority acquisition of The CW. So I'm not surprised in the slightest. I can't wait for the stations' new era with The CW.
  19. I really like the title logo. Simple, yet bold. I love the slit on the opposite sides of the N's, which of course correlates with the short N\N logo. (Sidebar: the G reminds me of the SNL pre-season 40 logo, which I also love).
  20. I really like the logo right now, but I'll reserve judgment for it and the new look as a whole for when it debuts. I'm real excited for it.
  21. I honestly thought - due to his previous work - that Licht would be a great fit for CNN, but I was wrong. Here's hoping the next leader will really improve the network. But at this point, it feels like a longshot.
