  1. "Apparently, the woman complained to CNBC executives that Matthews made inappropriate jokes and comments about her in front of others, that the matter was looked into and it was determined that the comments were inappropriate and in made in poor taste, but were never meant as propositions." http://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/nbc-news-settled-sexual-harassment-complaint-against-chris-matthews-in-1999/352300 “In 1999 this matter was thoroughly reviewed and dealt with. At that time Matthews received a formal reprimand,” an MSNBC spokesperson told the parent company in an email on Saturday.
  2. I almost feel for Rose. Unless I missed something, all of the allegations are from 10+ years ago, and even just 10 years ago, society had a much different culture and it's only recently that this stuff is coming to light. Not to say what he did was okay, but when you get away with this behavior for so long (a lifetime) you begin to think this behavior is normal. And every generation before ours grew up that way. I bet when Rose had to report story after story of another star going down for sexual harassment, he learned his lesson and realized what he had done was wrong. Maybe not, I don't know the man. Fortunately or unfortunately, he'll likely learn another lesson when he is fired from CBS any day now.
  3. This is a huge blow to CBS and quite a shame, I really enjoyed the Trio on CTM. I think there is little doubt that Charlie Rose will be fired, though at what point have we gone from "hate the sin, not the sinner," to "hate both the sin and the sinner." As terrible as it genuinely sounds, it really is a generational thing and it's only in this generation that this conduct is being shut down in such a manner that we basically know already Rose will be fired. What next? I wouldn't be surprised to see a trio of women, maybe Alex Wagner or Bianna Golodryga. Anthony Mason would be another obvious candidate. Maybe Oprah? But seriously, CBS has a big decision to make if they do fire Rose. I would love to see George Stephanopoulos take over, I think he would be a great fit on the program.
  4. Archived Twitter Feed...
  5. Haven't seen the promo you are referring to but WABC has used that tagline for years. And stations in New York have used similar promos...
  6. I won't say I haven't thought of this before but this user simply does not have a good track record. You're right, he's said this before to the same exact user because nynewsguy posts random things every other month as if he's an insider and none of them come true.
  7. http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/17/media/billy-bush-leaves-nbc/index.html?sr=twCNN101716billy-bush-leaves-nbc1120PMVODtopLink&linkId=30048203 Well GMA gets the last laugh because while everyone was saying Michael would fail, Billy's the one without a job and the Today Show is the one missing a 3rd hour host now. I'm interested to see who, if anyone, replaces Billy.
  8. A bit disappointed Laura didn't get the gig but seems like a good add for WABC.
  9. I gotta give credit where credit is due... The View this season is a really great program. I now is a good time if Whoopi is ready to go, Joy should be able to hold the fort down with Candace, Sara, Sunny and Jedediah. Paula is frankly a hot mess, not mean for a show like The View and she's gotta go, Raven is good as it seems she's on once a week (Fridays). It may be the election coverage but the program is really entertaining and thought provoking again.
  10. Can you please stop posting your distaste for Michael every few days. You said the same thing on Monday, it gets old to read.
  11. That's also only the second week out of the Olympics. Don't get me wrong ABC has a problem it needs to fix, primarily the demo, but all your doing is really hyperbolizing the situation.
  12. I watched yesterday morning and I thought it was decent. I think give them some time to work out the kinks and it could work well. I give them credit, the first hour is MUCH better than it's been for the past two years, hopefully they keep the newsier first hour after the election ends. I'm interested to see what Lara's role is when she returns. My guess is she'll still have a big presence in the second hour with Michael. I wonder if as "co-anchor" she'll sit next to George when the show opens, when she gets back or if it'll just be Robin, George and Michael. Also, if you ask me, I think Amy would be a great replacement eventually for Robin (whenever she does decide to leave, be it in 20 years...). If you ask me, Amy is a great anchor at ABC, and she's improved so much since she joined the network.
  13. Everyone's acting appalled and surprised but is this not what we've been expecting for a while now?
  14. The Chew has been doing very well, I definitely don't see them canceling it anytime soon. General Hospital... it is a soap and so of course everyone will say to cancel it but it also does very well and I don't see them canceling it right now... maybe down the road.
  15. At the start of the 7:30am half hour today, George announced that they would be broadcasting even more news in the half hour. GMA is serious, I'm curious to see what they do come fall 2016.
