  1. Well, KPXJ already runs Springer now (both syndicated and CW version). And then another article says that WPIX, KDAF, WPHL, WCIU, WLVI and WATL also will be carrying the show. My guess would be that the majority of the stations running it outside of the ones already listed would be the ones that carry Springer's syndicated package (and not the ones who only carry it via the CW). As for the CW Daytime, I'm curious as to what this means for those reruns since obviously the network has the right to ask for new episodes but proabably can't as long as Judge Jerry is in production. (and
  2. https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/fox-television-stations-to-give-rupaul-three-week-run Yeah, I know. This would be his second one. Telepictures wanted to launch it this fall but initially, they couldn't find enough stations for it. The article also says that Fox will be testing an entertainment magazine from Debmar-Mercury and Will Packer Media (who I think has a deal with DM parent company Lionsgate) called Central Avenue. Now, as I read the article, it says that Fox wants to test as many shows as possible to keep programming options fresh year round. This makes me cur
  3. Judge Jerry is coming to KPXJ This Fall. I thought that KSHV would end up getting that one.
  4. Either that or just let someone else have Wendy. I mean, that's the same thing that irritates me about Hearst and the Real in a couple of cities. I'm sure there's a station that would give the shows better treatment than that.
  5. And then they have Wendy Williams.....In freaking overnight.
  6. I think it'll definitely be one of the Sinclair networks that get's dropped. You can easily stream those via STIRR so why the need for the channel space?
  7. Miami. Even though WPTV is West Palm Beach.
  8. I can hear my English 3 (junior year) teacher now talking about that.
  9. Since you brought up Hubbard, I'll point out in the sale Cox is doing right now, they previously hinted at joint venture agreements with the TV and Radio stations after the sale of the television side was over. I'll touch on this more in the Speculatron but I think that if the puppy (no, not Alpha Media) goes back to bite the bones of the radio side as well, that this will lead to Hubbard (TV and Radio) being next for them.
  10. I suppose someone is going to create slow death threads soon because they don't like the companies. Although I think that Scripps and Tegna will actually do well with some of the Fox and CW stations in this deal.
  11. Maybe this is a special case because I haven't seen those ads on KSLA in a minute.
  12. Why do I feel like Sinclair would have done this with at least some of the proposed divestitures in the Tribune deal?
  13. KSLA dropped MeTime for another episode of Millionaire.
  14. They couldn't call themselves Alpha Media so I guess this was the next best thing. In all seriousness, this is a catchy name. It sounds better than Tegna and Tronc. Is there any way that they can get the Media General people still with Nexstar if that happens? Speaking of MG, it wouldn't shock me if Apollo chose to use the people that were to work Standard Media for positions with this company if the opportunity presented itself.
  15. I think this time if they tried streaming them again, it would work. Obviously, Disney would use Hulu to stream them on since they're adult oriented. I can't see them coming back on broadcast television unless they were first-run syndicated (and even when it was common to see scripted content in first run syndication, has there ever been a daily soap that aired in first run syndication?) I'm in agreement with this as well, but I can't see them coming back unless again, it was either streamed or aired in syndication. The Chew would probably have at least a remote chance of making
  16. Indeed. What is "hits too close to home" Seriously, I've lost a relative to this. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy's family. He and his relatives are in my prayers.
  17. I just assume Memphis would be a consolation prize for whoever didn't get the rest. More specifically, the one who made the second highest bid. Are there any other people they reported on that made an offer other than Apollo and Fox?
  18. I picture it as Cox buying Northwest while being bought itself by another company since Cox will still hold the majority (from what I read) of the 23% that Apollo doesn't have and it'll be their people running the company and finally, the ATL headquarters are still going to be retained. With the money that they get from the Northwest cable agreements being applied to the Cox stations (and potentially the Tribune/Nexstar castoffs), those will probably go towards the stations, (let's hope it does, rather than just immediately targeting the next group) which means rather than Cox's stations
  19. A lot of people give Nexstar way too little credit lately. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Media General merger is the best thing that ever happened to them and the Tribune merger will probably enhance them even further. Nexstar has improved the way they operate their stations tremendously since they merged into Media General, adding newscasts on stations, and trying to serve underserved audiences, to name a few. We're being way too hard on them. In my opinion, the way Nexstar operates could perhaps be viewed as better than Tegna or Scripps, depending on the perspective. Nexstar
  20. Technically, 6. That translator also runs the CW on the digital and then WHSV has MNT.
  21. I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees this.
  22. Probably not, unless something really unexpected happens.
  23. Not to bump this thread but is it just me or does the new music WISC uses sound remotely similar to the Sally Jessy Raphael theme song. Also, I think it wouldn't hurt if they potentially began syndicating that music to other stations unless only WISC and probably WKBT are allowed to use it.
