  1. KUNS will be the new CW affiliate in Seattle. Univision is being dropped. They declined being moved to a subchannel.
  2. The CW will simulcast the next GOP debate.
  3. In today's earnings call, Nexstar teased that more CW affiliation changes will be announced in the coming weeks.
  4. Kevin Adell has sent a cease and desist letter to WMYD to stop the CW affiliation. Official article (paywalled).
  5. Here's a pro wrestling-worthy swerve. The CW is reportedly close to picking up WWE NXT.
  6. WMYD's CW affiliation is officially announced. That leaves the question of what happens with Mission's pending acquisition of WADL.
  7. The deal is in jeopardy due to cocaine usage on a NWA PPV.
  8. CW Network yanked from Detroit airwaves over business spat
  9. The CW has reportedly picked up an NWA wrestling show and a companion reality series.
  10. Looks like CW may have quietly expanded Sundays to 7/6c. There's network repeats scheduled in that timeslot starting on 10/1.
  11. Saturday's ratings are in. CW's ACC game (0.11/617k) nearly matched NBC's Big Ten game (0.11/665k).
  12. KUSI is airing the ACC game instead of KFMB. I assume the other Tegna affiliates are preempting as well?
  13. An affiliation switch flew under the radar. The CW departed Scripps' MTN group of stations for Nexstar's KSVI.
  14. How will college football broadcasts on The CW work? Q&A with network president Dennis Miller
  15. Comet is essentially syndicated programming. It's as watchable as any other station's lineup. I'll take reruns of The X-Files over a Byron Allen court show. It wouldn't be out of place on an independent station in another era. I'm surprised we don't see more stations fill non-network/news hours with programming from their in-house diginet rather than spending money on dwindling syndicated fare. If Nexstar wants to cut CW's programming costs, why not nuke the syndicated CW+ shows and fill the time with a mix of programming from their diginets?
  16. KAUT's switch to CW was made official today as well. It's still an odd, isolated decision. Horse trading between Nexstar and Sinclair? Either way, Freedom 43 gives way to CW 43.
  17. TMZ spilled the beans on CW rebooting Trivial Pursuit with LeVar Burton hosting.
  18. WADL has finally updated their ancient website and unveiled their new logo.
  19. AJC briefly had an article up announcing CW's new Atlanta affiliate, but it was taken down. I didn't catch which station was announced.
  20. According to WGN's schedule, they will be airing CW's ACC football games instead of WCIU.
  21. Nexstar readies new CW Network affiliates in Pittsburgh, Seattle In the Seattle market, a deal is being finalized to bring CW Network programming to KONG (Channel 16), an independent station owned by TEGNA that operates as a duopoly with NBC affiliate KING-TV (Channel 5) Despite not being a full-time independent station, WATL has a slight edge as the Atlanta area’s next CW Network affiliate, because the deal could cover both it and KONG in Seattle. WPCH is also being considered, because its status as an independent station means it can more-easily accommodate CW Network shows by moving around some syndicated programming. But the channel’s distribution in Canada — which dates back to its ownership by Turner, when it was called WTBS (later TBS Superstation) — proves somewhat problematic for Nexstar, in part because the network is relying on older Canadian series to fill some of its prime-time schedule and has secured live sports programming whose rights are held by other broadcasters in the country.
  22. WADL posted a promo video on their front page announcing their CW affiliation.
