  1. IMO, the idea of trying something different isn't the issue. If anything, I'd gladly welcome experimentation. I feel like local stations can produce more than just news and lifestyle shows, and making different kinds of programming would at least help stem the loss of viewers to streaming at least somewhat. That said, the implication I get from this new show is that it's basically gonna be a clone of The Daily Show; that is, a "comedic" retelling of current events while cracking a bunch of wheezy, stale political jokes done better elsewhere. That's not an experiment, that's just ch
  2. Yes and no. It was recently acquired by Fox Nation, which will run both old and new episodes. But as far as syndication, I don't think we'll be seeing it any time soon, if ever again.
  3. Hearst has launched Hearst Media Production Group to make programming for multiple platforms. Frank Biancuzzo is heading the new department, and Litton Entertainment and Matter of Fact with Soledad O'Brien will be part of its output.
  4. Syndicated. There's no more CW Springer. They sold the time slot back to the affiliates in exchange for running on Saturday nights.
  5. I was listening to Nexstar's earnings call while working, and at one point he mentioned that only 16% of people in the country recognized the NewsNation brand, even admitting that 84% of the US "has no earthly idea" what it is. At least he's honest that nobody's watching...
  6. Jonathan Katz is gone from Scripps.
  7. MyNetworkTV announced its fall schedule. Not much change except Law and Order: Criminal Intent getting booted off the schedule, its three time slots replaced by Chicago PD while Chicago Fire takes over the latter show's current time slots.
  8. Oh my GOD. They actually used a fan logo for their official website!?
  9. That makes sense from that market's perspective. The video I shared said that WWLP did this sort of thing in the past, but that joined Nexstar in the Media General buyout, so I believe they did this at least three times before (I'd say four if not for the pandemic). WJZY, of course, joined Nexstar just before the shutdowns, so they didn't get to promote the event that year.
  10. Same thing's going on in Western Massachusetts.
  11. Not that it matters anymore; Sinclair bought Fisher, and Sinclair only cares about TV; hell, they just announced they'd sell off their only radio assets. Hence why this application's been made.
  12. That guide doesn't look like it's been updated since January. The Excel sheets only show programming as they were in January.
  13. Sinclair is giving a big push for its diginets Comet, Charge, and TBD, and apparently it's been doing well for them. The same article suggests that Stirr is being used as a testing ground for future diginets.
  14. My money's on Byron Allen. The guy's been pushing hard for station deals. He got the Quincy/Gray castoffs, after all.
  15. I've known of that logo for a while, thanks to the logo community. Pretty rare picture there, since WB has historically liked to replace their old logos. Summer of 42 played earlier today on TCM, and the modern logo replaced the Kinney shield at the beginning (the ending still had the in-credit version, though).
