  1. Comcast dominates in Philadelphia, Allentown and the Lehigh Valley are dominated by Service Electric, a local provider (who actually invented cable in the 40s) with RCN as an overbuilder.
  2. I haven't watched weekday GMA in years. This set is horrible, what's with the random squares above Robin's head? It's funny, as I watched this, I was thinking, "What was wrong with set with Diane and Charlie?" Or even before then - a simple desk with the city as the background and some potted plants here and there - homey! And the living room as well!
  3. A few weeks ago Dan was doing noon-6 PM and Clayton was doing 10 & 10:30 PM. Kathy Craine posted on Facebook she is currently working from home and Dan has been filling in for her - guess they didn't feel like trying to have her do the forecast from home?
  4. This is an interesting move... at least he's staying local!
  5. Karen Rogers was on during the GMA cut-ins. Maybe Chris got in for the 10 PM show, then stayed up until the morning shows, then went home?
  6. She will be missed!!! Always loved her forecasts and her personality!
  7. But ABC has pretty bad prime time also, especially at 10 PM... but people are obviously tuning to 6 at 11.
  8. I was about to post the same thing. I was in my kitchen making dinner at looked at the oven clock at 6:46 and thought, wow! There hasn't been a commercial yet. I actually like the long intro thing. It gives enough details that if I don't want to keep watching, I don't have to, but leaves out some details. Lately this has been the kind of thing I turn on after my local news (on an independent station) ends and I start messing around with dinner in the kitchen. I can still see the screen from there and if I hear something interesting that I missed, I rewind the DVR
  9. Since the stay at home order I've been up super late and have been watching Seinfeld at 12:30 & 1 AM on PHL17. I've seen commercials for the PHL17 Morning News. Why do they have their own news cast for the morning but 6ABC does the 10 pm news?
  10. Wendy Davis said she was exposed to COVID-19, so she's at home. I don't know if she has it or not, though.
  11. I saw that. Interesting, to say the least.
  12. WFMZ earlier this week had Rob and Wendy far apart from each other at the desk. And, where they normally stand together to do the teasers, only one was there. Now they appear to be taking turns doing it solo. The weather people have been kept in their separate office. The news room is working from home. At 4PM, Joy Howe was in the PPL Center studio all by herself. When they use the couch set, they have been sitting on opposite ends. What makes it interesting is the example they're trying to set for everyone else.
  13. I noticed this this week also, although I haven't gotten a chance to see it. I'm not really sure why the Lehigh Valley needs 5 hours of morning news coverage... or should I say, the same 15 minutes of news repeated for 5 hours. I'm guessing they had to fill a gap left by whatever used to air at that time - not sure what it was or why it's gone.
  14. I don't think there is a thread for this anywhere, but I think it's an interesting topic. How many cable companies have their own news? Obviously Verizon just stopped producing FIOS1 News. Here in eastern PA, Blue Ridge Communications puts on News 13. They do hyper-local stories twice a night - no weekends. Here's a link to a story from last week with a video of the report: https://www.brctv13.com/news/local-news/25119-lucky-to-be-alive-slatington-man-survives-head-on-collision?fbclid=IwAR0WT4w3yuYQCagNs4WF4LhlUlv69_RPDH0hF4ZXnJ0X0pZt_rBSac39WLY Kind of l
