  1. Not until ratings tank... don’t hold your breath. “Breaking As We Come On The Air Tonight!! That girl, dunking her chicken nuggets in what she thought was ketchup, that moment she realized it was blood, horrified onlookers calling the police. And later that moment that everyone realized that I learned to talk like this from William Shatner, the story, that Will warm. your heart.” Whatever happened to anchoring like they used to do? It’s not like talking conversationally is THAT hard. I don’t know a single person that speaks like David Muir. Nobody. It can be distracting.
  2. If I was an advertiser I would be cautious.. there must be some drop off in viewers from the extended teaser... “well I guess that’s the news on to something else!”.. and then 2 or 3 17.575 second stories with 2 minutes of commercials between each... Clearly this is working in the ratings but it almost feels like a waste of time to not just run 6 minutes of ads after that 18 minute block. Maybe with everything going on in the world and how little attention they can give to things this argues Strongly for a full hour long newscast.
  3. I felt like they gave us every story in the newscast in that teaser...
  4. Is the old Jennings theme just in the open or is it in the teases to commercial and the close as well? Those long form closes with the old music were incredible.
  5. What we have now was the old standard prior to World War 2. The “Just the facts ma’am” thing came along after that and I have the feeling like most things of that era it was an offshoot of the war in some way. Maybe the controlling of information by the government during the war. At any rate much is made of losing “objectivity” despite that being a short lived anomaly...
  6. WXYZ Has a bolder bug now that doesn’t disappear into the background... it looks really nice..
  7. That looks pretty good especially the ticker setup.

    You would also be out of business.

    Oops, WFTS

    Oh I get it now... for some reason I was under the impression this was on the air.

    Oops, WFTS

    The bug is also missing so that's one indication of part of the problem. I would assume they do the graphics locally but the bug is beamed in from Indy if I understand the system correctly.

    That sounds like a master control issue. With that function hubbed odd things happen...
  12. *cough* The demos they are looking for and will need to survive past about 2035. *cough*
  13. Clearly my comment went right over your head but thanks for showing how “Easy” it is... I don’t do art, never could, so this means nothing to me. I just know what it looks like and how it behaves.
  14. You’re a tough crowd...
