  1. I've never thought the two hour primetime rerun block was worth branding a whole station with the "My" designation. Some of the stations now delay the two hour block to later at night. I've never watched their programming.
  2. I think they'd do better to air the Judge Judy reruns. This just adds a fifth 4:00 newscast...
  3. It's boring with the same people on every newscast. I always liked how ABC 7 had different co-anchors on each newscast in the past years when I used to watch. All these stations have less programming and all newscasts, it's no wonder ratings are down and people don't care about watching local channels much anymore other than needing them to watch network programs in their area.
  4. Hearst stations could pick it up as a .3 channel. Most of their stations don't carry any other subchannels but MeTV on .2 currently.
  5. When does The Real return with new shows? That show always seems to have more repeats airing than new episodes, It takes long breaks in the Winter, Spring and Summer.
  6. I don't know why they continued to air Right This Minute all last season at 1:00pm...
  7. CBS owned stations don't carry more than one hour of the CBS Overnight News with a repeat of the CBS Evening News being used to replace part of the Overnight News. The overnight broadcast is just clips of the CBS Evening News anyway and isn't the original style broadcast they used to have with CBS News Nightwatch and Up to the Minute. They should do what NBC has with Early Today making the CBS Morning News available at 3:00AM ET so local stations can use it where they want and start newscasts as early as 4:00AM in some markets. ABC's America This Morning now airs at 3:30AM ET to allow stati
  8. Live with Kelly and Ryan is repeating now on ABC owned stations throughout the country as well as other ABC stations that carry the show. It looks like ABC World News Now is being reduced or completely pre-empted in favor of the Kelly and Ryan repeat. WABC New York and WPVI Philadelphia don't appear to be airing World News Now at all anymore. WABC now shows This Week with George Stephanopoulos airing late Sunday/early Monday instead and Tamron Hall through the week from 3-4AM.
  9. Sister station WPXI 11 in Pittsburgh needs to do the same. They are still airing Right This Minute at 1:00pm while Kelly's show is on at 3:00am...I don't know why these stations kept Right This Minute in daytime anyway.
  10. I don’t know why WSB and WPXI are airing Kelly Clarkson in the overnight hours and keeping Right This Minute in daytime. I thought that show was on its way out after ABC owned stations and Gray stations dropped it.
  11. When did Action News start airing at 4am? I noticed they start at 4:00 now with ABC's America This Morning now at 3:30am.
  12. Unless your a news fan, I don't know why you would turn to WHDH anymore. The only good syndicated programs they have is Family Feud and Extra. It doesn't have much to lure viewers in to keep them tuned in for newscasts. Why didn't they move The CW from WLVI to their station? At least that would offer something to promote with programming.
  13. Is 7 News on WHDH popular in Boston? It seems like the station will be nothing but news from now on. Their syndicated programming won't lure viewers. I'm surprised they didn't put CW programming on in primetime to draw some popularity to the station.
  14. I was glad to see that the 11am news is back. It never should've left! Also, I think ABC 7 is smart to pass on Right This Minute for the 1pm timeslot. Whatever ABC comes up with for their O&Os fails (Katie, FabLife, etc). I wish they had kept One Life to Live...still miss that show a lot.
