  1. Probably the latter is more likely than the former.
  2. Fair enough. I would have liked to have discussed the wisdom of that sort of business decision which isn’t geared to maximize profits but I’ve got a sour taste in my mouth now so forget it.
  3. That’s fine. There’s a better way to approach people here. Whether he’s right or not is immaterial. Being right isn’t a license to flatten people in a condescending manner.
  4. Pandemic winding down playing a role as people find other things to do?
  5. Whether you appreciate it or not your smug know it all attitude isn’t really welcome. Knock it off. I would try to rebut this but why bother? It’s not like you politely listen anyways.
  6. Not everywhere they don’t. No way.
  7. There can’t be much profit in a show that nobody watches. You could probably make more money with a test pattern.
  8. At least he seems to be taking it in stride.
  9. The folks in Roanoke shouldn’t jump the gun then.
  10. That’s what I was looking for. So for on air purposes he was just Mark Giangreco with Sports or something to that effect?
  11. What was the title they used on air for Mark if any?
  12. So Jim Rose is signed until 2023 it looks like when he will be 70. I’m gonna take a chance and guess it’s his last contract. Is there any chance Dionne Miller is in line to get the top job beyond that?
  13. Detroit Among total viewers: 6am: WDIV News 49,000 HH WJBK News 44,000 HH WDIV Is also claiming Women 25-54. 4pm: WDIV News 88,000 HH WJBK Judge Judy 55,000 HH WXYZ News 38,000 HH 5pm: WDIV News 120,000 HH WXYZ News 72,000 HH WJBK News 60,000 HH 6pm: WDIV News 160,000 HH WXYZ News 109,000 HH WJBK News 47,000 HH 7pm: WDIV Wheel/Jeopardy! 168,000 HH WXYZ News/The List 73,000 HH WJBK TMZ/EXTRA 35,000 HH 10pm: WJBK News 58,000 HH 11pm: WDIV News 110,000 HH WXYZ News 63,000 HH WJBK News 37,000 HH https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/loc ... platforms/
  14. I’m gonna guess a lack thereof. But if she doesn’t realize she’s a ditz then she’s the only one which would be appropriate I suppose. Still not the most professional thing to do on his part. My guess would be that this was the straw that broke the camels back.
  15. Do they really need to move?
  16. They dwelled on Tiger Woods a little much last night. Why do we need a rehash of the guys last win at the Masters and how everybody felt about it that lasted almost as long as the original report? The other issue is revealing so much in the teaser they are literally repeating themselves word for word in the newscast. I’ve been watching some of the old ABC newscasts lately and this kind of sloppy stuff sticks out like a sore thumb.
  17. I remember it well actually. I grew up watching Nickelodeon between say 95 and 08... so I remember the concept well. I just don’t think an NFL game is a place for kiddy stuff. These are 22 big burly 300 pound men dropping multiple f-bombs per play. Real kid friendly. I remember that from slime time live too... oh... wait...
  18. Not terribly impressed with the idea of using slime in my NFL animations...
  19. That time the 1980’s called and tipped their hat to your logo design... Anytime a circle 7 doesn’t have an abc logo attached to it is a win.
  20. That explains why I hadn’t seen it. My earliest recollection of watching it appears to start with the 1998 format. I was 8 at the time so I’m sure I saw some older shows but I don’t remember it if I did. It’s a little eerie how good everything seemed then and the way it’s being presented and comparing that to now... a lot can happen in 20 years I guess...
  21. Silly question: How long did they use the non-Kalehoff theme and rainbow-ish graphics in the 90’s? Found a newscast from 1997 that uses a theme I’ve never heard before and I wasn’t aware they had gone away from the well known theme for a time.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. I felt like they gave us every story in the newscast in that teaser...
