  1. Meant to post yesterday that WPCH started their checkerboard 8pm lineup last night. That moved Last Man Standing reruns to 11am and 11:30 and Pictionary and Funny You Should Ask were cut down to one run each at 10am and 10:30am. Also Modern Family is now airing at 6:30, Young Sheldon at 7, and then Big Bang Theory at 7:30. It used to be YS, BBT, then MF. Which now I think BBT also airs at 7:30 on WANF.
  2. So it’s not just WBTV. For a while after Gray bought Raycom WBTV only had Nate Wimberly. About the time Delano retired Ashley Strohlein went to WCNC to replace Kelsey Riggs who went to ACCN/ESPN. They now also have Cam Gaskins but isn’t the same as when Paul and Delano was there, and Jim Thacker before Paul but that was before my time. I’m rooting for CBS to give 10-11pm to the affiliates so WBTV can give Football Friday Night a real show again (at least 30 minutes on actual TV) and not 20 minutes during the 11pm news and 15 minutes online. It is a far cry from when it was an hour. CBS made them run The Late Show in pattern every night but I’m not so sure part of it isn’t Gray too. Delano is now with Bahakel Sports.
  3. And I remember the days when WBTV aired infomercials at 9 and 9:30 am in the mid 2000s. It seemed they could never find anything decent to replace Donahue at 9am until QC in the Mornng premiered. (Except I think Rachael Ray at one time). They would’ve been better off pulling a WFMY and delaying CBS This Morning/Early Today an hour (I mean this was the station that delayed The Price Is Right by a day for a decade to air Top O’ The Day at 11:30am) and extending their morning news until CBS finally cracked down on affiliates doing that. Of course they had room for Flip My Food and Fix it or Finish it.
  4. Ironically sister station WCNC had Charlotte Today for an hour at 11am then went to an hour of news at 11:30am when COVID hit. Thought it would be just temporary but they have kept it ever since.
  5. Which was why the original Roseanne should’ve ended after Season 8. Roseanne also said Jackie was a Lesbian and that Becky and Darlene’s husbands were switched.
  6. Yeah I can’t see Roseanne Season 10 being included. It is actually included with the original Roseanne on Peacock and Cozi.
  7. It will have 93 by the end of the season. The first season was only 11 episodes but the second, third and fourth seasons ended up being 20 each. This year it gets 22. If it gets renewed as expected it will have up to 115 by the end of next season.
  8. I’ve heard The Conners is expected to but that’s it.
  9. WMYT returns after a 3-year hiatus (it left when the Fox sale went through). But viewers haven’t missed much unless you like Byron Allen court shows. Most of the reruns you can also see on streaming, cable/satellite or on WJZY.
  10. If I wanted to watch Dateline I would watch it in syndication or on MyNetwork TV.
  11. I guess Atlanta and Company isn’t a pay for play then.
  12. Didn’t they have an 11:30am newscast? And they could do a whole lot worse than sitcom reruns. Especially since not all have made it to syndication (Superstore comes to mind).
  13. Seems a little early for a test run. I thought they had test runs in the summer. Maybe they are considering this for this coming fall.
  14. WSOC needs to do the same for Tamron and Dr. Phil..unless they are actually planning a 4:00 news next year
  15. Starting to think Jeopardy and Wheel stuff needs its own thread. Wow, due to them hosting the game is a bit extreme.
  16. If they were, WCNC and WFTV would be airing Wheel first. I have heard no such thing.
  17. Same for WSOC in Charlotte. Their 4pm Dr. Phil airing will no longer be needed with WAXN airing what is now the previous day’s episode at 10am. That can become the “main” episode.
  18. Does this mean King of Queens will be leaving syndication and going streaming only? https://tvnewscheck.com/programming/article/sony-pictures-television-to-take-the-king-of-queens-back-to-market-for-availability-starting-in-2024/
  19. WPXI, the station that airs Ring TV? I don’t know about that. They will probably find some more cheap filler.
  20. What the heck is an NBC station doing airing Ring TV?
  21. Could also see CW move to WGHP 8.2 and WNCN 11.2. WCWG would become an Indy and could change calls. MyNet could move to WLFL and WRDC could be sold off or maybe Charge could take over 28.1.
  22. So back in the summer The Charlotte Observer mentioned that “Your Day With Anna Kooiman” was going to premiere January 9 on WCCB from 8-9am. That didn’t happen. Instead it is only going to be on YouTube on Bahakel Entertainment and it’s supposed to premiere today.
  23. ABC O&O’s renew Wheel and Jeopardy for 5 years
