  1. This is quite the paragraph from the Deadline article. The demographic focus of the CW will also change over time, Carter said. Historically, shows like Riverdale, All American, Arrow and Supernatural have focused on viewers in their teens through their 30s. The reality, though, is that the average CW viewer is 58 years old, and Carter said that schism explains why the CW is the lowest-rated broadcast network.
  2. Good for the sellers, squeezing some cash out of that thing. I hope not too many people are emotionally attached to the existing CW programming.
  3. FOX Weather has started sending me a "FOX Weather Agenda" email each day, teasing the next day's coverage. Maybe I should forward it on to NN.
  4. I know we joke about the age of the typical soap opera viewer, but university students were surprisingly loyal soap viewers, at least when I was in school. People would gather in the common areas of dorms to watch every day. That was also a time before cell phones, of course.
  5. Ouch. In a market like Chattanooga, the morning news probably uses a skeleton staff on a normal day. If you can't put on the news, that means you literally have no producer, no air talent, no director-- and maybe enough people working sick on the nightside staff that you can't hold them over for a double shift all night. https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/widespread-covid-outbreak-forces-chattanooga-station-to-cancel-morning-newscast/243150/
  6. By the way, we thought NN had made a mistake sending us the promos for the Cuomo interview earlier today. I didn't realize they had decided to rerun the interview tonight.
  7. NN poked some fun at themselves in a recent promo. https://fb.watch/eAbZwWxX2t/
  8. KXRM in Colorado Springs had some Twitter problems tonight (the tweets, indeed, the station's account are all gone).

  10. You can charge a little more for ads that are in local news time. That's what buyers want. In case where CBS is competing against one of its own affiliates, it sounds like they hired a couple of people to slap some local news together, but most of the hour is canned material from the network, or from an out-of-market O&O. Here is Seattle's A-block.

  12. 3:00 p.m. news (30 minutes) is coming in September.
  13. Some stations might call them associate producers or assistant producers, but, yeah, you won't find much writing help outside the top ten markets. A lot of the extra jobs were dumped on producers over the years as TV groups cut the headcounts.
  14. She left WPIX-TV several months ago, so I don't think Dallas was specifically on her mind at the time. She probably just needed a break, or maybe didn't get a fair contract offer from Nexstar.
  15. KARE morning anchor Gia Vang is leaving. https://fb.watch/dIhI2vFEQJ/
  16. This is huge in the Kansas City circle.
  17. Yikes. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/6/7/breaking-news-la-producer-shot-at-on-the-101-freeway
