  1. It'd be sad, but it'd be a better use of channel space.
  2. If Phoenix was Toronto, then KNXV would've been their equivalent to CityPulse -- a shocking, edgy, informal newscast that dedicated itself to deeper stories -- had the New World domino effect not screwed things up. As it was, they went downhill in two years and went through multiple campaigns and logos trying to find something that worked.
  3. Really? It escaped NBC's tape erasure policy? How many eps are known to be missing?
  4. During that time, they also liked calling their late news as "(name of news op) Primetime", since they were moving their 11PM shows to 10PM/9PM. They mostly stopped this by 97-98.
  5. Steve Kamer's the name. He's done some local news work, including KCAL; I believe he's also the voice of the YES Network too. Ironic, considering it was TVbD that created WOIO/WUAB's "Cleveland Television News" look in 1995-96:
  6. Well, let's hope she'll be kicked upstairs where she can't do a lot of damage. The next step is to remove Vishnu Atreya and put in a scheduler with competence.
  7. Should be noted BET had to leave this after Viacom bought them out since they were then co-owned with Showtime (resulting in BET Movies: Starz! 3 becoming Black Starz and eventually Starz inBlack). But here's something BET didn't sell to Viacom: their own PPV service, previously the independent Action PPV (BET took it over sometime in the late 90s):
  8. Sounds more like a revival of BayTV, a joint-venture of KRON and TCI/AT&T (it was shuttered just prior to AT&T Broadband being gobbled up by Comcast). But no one ever did the 24-Hour News format better than CityPulse.
  9. There were a LOT of sets that looked similar. I've counted KNXV's spaceship, as well as WKYC, WUSA, WOIO-WUAB, KSAT, KWGN, WBAL, and WGNX/WGCL as all having used similar sets. Does anyone know who the hell designed these things?!?!
  10. Not to mention their last graphics set with the WDVM square 9, where it was just "9 News" (though the EWN name remained elsewhere),
  11. Firstly, Saban already tried a Captain Kangaroo reboot in the 90s, didn't last long in syndication and it then anchored a block on the ill-fated Fox Family. As for game shows, in this case, no. I want CBSTM to remain as it is-- low-key, news focused, I like it since it doesn't focus on features too much or be overtly political like cable news. I can't go back to GMA or Today now.
  12. I just want HulkieD to finally finish the Fox Kids and Marvel stuff....
  13. I LOVE that standing ovation the CBS News crew gave Dan at the end. Combined with the Patterson Walz and Fox theme, it's beautiful. It's a shame they had to interrupt it with the plugs for their website and Wal-Mart, you'd think they could've left those out that night,
