  1. Big loss for ABC, though I’m not a huge fan of Tom or his delivery. WNT weekends is about as good as it can get for him at ABC because he’s been woeful at best when filling in on GMA. Strongly disagree with whoever suggested he replace Strahan. There are a roster of much better fits in that role than Llamas. I wonder where he lands at NBC?
  2. ^ if you think about it GMA, Today and The Early Show each had heavy wood toned sets back then. Today, the sets are much more modern looking because that’s what’s in. Times change. I personally liked when the set was flipped with the windows behind home base. The show could use a retooling certainly but I’m not sure all the criticisms are fair. GMA is really good at what it does and keep in mind that since it’s inception in 1975 it was always geared to be the more informal / entertainment geared morning option. For the first 20 years they anchored from a living room set and was hosted by actor
  3. A lot of these criticisms are not unique to GMA only, most modern day morning television has become a glorified infomercial all across the globe. The first 45 mins of the show is really still quite great and packed with load of news though. The set is atrocious and I’d really like to see Michael dumped from the program. Times Square is prime real estate but it’s hardly been used since they introduced the indoor studio audience upstairs.
  4. One has to wonder if KDFW is taking the safe “don’t fix what’s not broke” approach. Either that or they’re planning a larger move (their currently facility in downtown Dallas is a dump).
  5. I thought Morgan had a slot on MSNBC at some point? She is extremely talented and I thought she was a much better fit with Peter in on Saturday Today than Kristen Welker. She has filled in occasionally on Sunday Today as well.
  6. Is Saturday Today formally relocated to DC? Last weekend they were in Studio 1A and obviously before the pandemic but introducing a brand new set almost seems like they’re staying put which makes sense when both hosts live there. Regardless, the set looks great but somewhat one dimensional.
  7. This is quite a bummer. Hoping that it’s neck issues as mentioned above and not something more ominous. I hope she finds comfort from the pain that she’s having and can hopefully make a return if and when she wants to.
  8. Looks nice but also very local news.
  9. MtP came from Chuck’s home today I believe. Didn’t someone mention here that they wouldn’t debut on the new set until inauguration week?
  10. I know for certain KTTV and WTTG did this as well. It used to be really neat to watch them while a live newscast was on and see the interesting things that would happen as soon as the broadcasts ended. I especially enjoyed watching the studio cams during the transitions from Fox 11 Morning News to GDLA since they used two different sets. Thanks for unlocking a really awesome memory!
  11. Sure Ginger did her first half hour weather hits from outside but other than that they typically don’t do much outside especially since introducing a studio audience on the second floor. About 1.5 years ago they reconfigured the set to eliminate the windows behind home base (on-air). Even the soft set is based in front of large monitor walls. And walking near the studio in Midtown they have only one window not plastered up to see inside the studio. If not for the “Live in Times Square” in the intro, one could be confused as to where the show is filmed.
  12. Could CTM be moving to Times Square? Talks are just that at this point but apparently CBS liked having the show broadcast from its Viacom studios in Times Square for the election. I say go for it since GMA hardly uses the exterior of Times Square in any form on camera anymore. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/cbs-this-morning-times-square-tv-news-1234848704/
  13. I enjoy them being on the ground floor but you’re right the set does clash and just seems like a hodge podge of pieces placed together. I don’t remember the older iterations of this very similar set being this bad though.
  14. GMA’s Christmas decorations on set look atrocious this year.
