    Speaking of scheduling changes, they're swapping FBoy Island and the comedy night so that FBoy Island isn't competing with The Golden Bachelor.


    So instead, they're competing with [...] Dancing with the Stars. Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire...

    Hopefully DwtS will wipe the floor with it.


    In either case: not anymore it will.

    DWTS will now air on Tuesdays this season.

    So much for that then.

    Reportedly, the interim leadership team was taken aback by Zaslav naming someone relatively quickly. They believed (or hoped) that they would be in charge until at least the end of year.


    According to THR, the 'interim team of COO David Leavy; Amy Entelis, the longtime head of talent and content development; head of editorial Virginia Moseley; and programming chief Eric Sherling will continue in their current roles under Thompson.'


    What's key, imo, is that Thompson will '“act as editor-in-chief, ultimately responsible for all CNN content,” per WBD which would suggest the new lineup could get reworked once Thompson starts in October.



    That's interesting.

    Not TV news, but still important enough for this topic:

    Bob Barker has passed away at 99 years old.

    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.

  4. 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."




  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    Yep. I saw it with WPHL (very obvious yes) back when Nexstar confirmed their majority acquisition of The CW.

    WPHL picking up the network is the most logical scenario. At least it gets to be O&O again instead of just an affiliate (and a barely recognized one at that).

    So I'm not surprised in the slightest. I can't wait for the stations' new era with The CW.

  8. 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).

    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.

  10. 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.
