  1. I know the Phoenix market is hyper-competitive, but isn't KNXV close to the top in some time slots?
  2. This shows a lot of people are stupid. They want the networks/stations yet gripe when they have a huge rate increase at the beginning of the year. Shouldn't they be able to put two and two together? It's not that infrastructure/maintenance costs increased that much. It's mainly programming costs.
  3. A few years ago, Sinclair's WHP-TV Harrisburg was airing "Life Today with James Robison" at noon. It was uncommon, but not necessarily a one-off.
  4. The new WKYC "Circle 3" is reminiscent to KTVK's "Circle 3" circa 1980-82, except for not being italicized.
  5. The best graphics in American TV over the past five years were with the Dispatch stations. Now that they're TEGNA, I can see them screwing it up big time.
  6. They've already posted their reason on http://tvpromise.att.com
  7. KPNX is getting back in the midday news business...sort of. They’re introducing a 12-minute program at noon which appears it will be nothing but light stuff for stay-at-home moms. The sales department-produced “Arizona Midday” will air from 12:15 to 1pm. https://www.12news.com/article/life/announcements/12-minutes-of-news-commercial-free-12-at-12-launches-on-sept-9-tram-mai-arizona-midday-daily-blast-live/75-38647175-c94f-4aa1-a171-8bf859026b46
  8. It would be, but WCIU are heritage calls for Weigel and Norman Shapiro.
  9. Despite that, WCUU would make a good choice of call letters for a CW station. ("W-C-Double-U")
  10. Since Entertainment Studios is a content partner, you'll probably see episodes of The American Athlete and Cars.TV repeated ad nauseum instead of World Poker Tour and Destination Polaris.
  11. I saw that KFMB-TV 8.2 (CW) in San Diego has also picked up Full Court Press, so KPNX isn't the lone Tegna station airing it. No Meredith stations I've found on their list, but Scripps is airing it on KMCI-38 in Kansas City, and it's also listed for WKBW in Buffalo (even though it doesn't show it on their schedule for 9/8).
  12. KPNX in Phoenix is airing Full Court Press at 4am Sunday morning. A somewhat better time than what they give Matter of Fact with Soledad O'Brien (which airs 1:30-2am Sunday and Monday mornings).
  13. Lawyer commercials, and (ironically enough) "resort rehab." Can the average Maury/Springer viewer afford $100,000 a stay in Malibu?
  14. Tamron Hall will be a one-and-done (maybe two, since that's how many Disney/ABC gave Katie Couric). I just find that it's risky to launch syndicated talk franchises in this day in age.
  15. A number of promos for KNXV from 1984, pre-Scripps. One year in to being a full time independent (notice the video glitches when they switch from commercial to commercial/program, possibly using 3/4" U-Matic players).
