  1. The set isn't bad. I think it's an upgrade from what they had before. But I'm not a fan of the colors though. And I do agree about the monitors being clunky.
  2. While this is good, it doesn't really mean anything in terms of fall shows coming back anytime soon because of the SAG-AFTRA strike still going on. The late night shows will probably come back soon though.
  3. And Pittsburgh too. Dish customers now no longer have WTAE and WPXI because of retrans disputes. I'm not affected because I have an antenna, but my parents are.
  4. Pittsburgh looks like this (all changes take effect Monday). KDKA: No changes. WTAE: No changes. WPXI: People Puzzler replaces Ring Nation at 1:30pm and Drew Barrymore moves from WPKD to replace Rachael Ray at 2pm. WPKD: Aside from the obvious changes (Family Feud and 48 Hours in primetime; new 8pm news in November), Dr. Phil moves to 2pm and another hour of Family Feud takes its place at 5pm. WPNT: Again, aside from the obvious changes (CW taking over primetime), Pictionary gets a second airing from sister WPGH at 7:30am, Mathis Court debuts at 4 & 4:30pm and MNT moves to late nights. WPGH: Person, Place or Thing airs at 11 & 11:30am and Justice for the People with Judge Milian airs at 1 & 1:30pm.
  5. And now that network has a new name and logo starting in October: SportsNet Pittsburgh. Now it says in that article that it'll be carried on every cable, satellite and streaming provider, but that's not true. It won't be on DISH because they haven't carried AT&TSN for over a year now, and they don't carry any RSNs, including NESN.
  6. Well it did confirm that they are launching an 8pm newscast on KDKA+, which I'm not so sure I agree with.
  7. Ok so I said this on the Discord, but these graphics remind me of the on screen graphics for NCAA Football 09 for the Wii, which I played a lot of growing up. Here are some pictures to compare.
  8. Yeah WPKD is definitely getting these. Just have a hunch.
  9. That's very possible. They already re-air Talk Pittsburgh on their CBS News Pittsburgh stream at 9pm, so it would only make sense to have an OTA encore of the show. And moving the Nightly Sports Call to 9pm and making it a full hour also makes sense.
  10. And Pitt is playing in the first game on The CW, so hopefully the new affiliate is announced soon. Typically, they only get around a million viewers when they're on network TV (like they are this weekend and next), so ideally, this should be beneficial for NASCAR, the network and the affiliates.
  11. I know that was already announced, but I'm still glad to hear it. March Madness just isn't the same without him in studio. At least IMO...
  12. Doesn't surprise me. I think Don would fit well at NN. As for Tucker? He'd fit better at Newsmax, IMO.
  13. I posted this in the Discord, but I think that will happen within the next year or so, possibly sooner. It wouldn't shock me if discussions between Lemon and Nexstar happen in the near future, if they aren't already...
  14. Oh I agree. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the black bug and ticker. Now it just looks ridiculously awful.
  15. I think the way they implented the colors with the last package was not good. But with this one, it's a little more tolerable. That's not to say it's better. It's just a little easier on the eyes to watch. Now after seeing the gold box this morning, I don't think it looks good at all.
  16. CBS' newest hire, former Villanova head coach Jay Wright, will be in studio for the Selection Show on Sunday, per this press release. https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/article/2023-03-06/cbs-sports-and-warner-bros-discovery-sports-present-2023-ncaa-mens-basketball
  17. Yeah it doesn't look all that bad. It might be a little big, but it's not terrible.
  18. Ha! They'll most definitely take the easy route and air reruns of Dr. Phil. I think KDKA will do the same. IMO, if any Pittsburgh station starts a 3pm newscast, it will be WPXI.
  19. The font itself isn't bad, IMO. It just doesn't fit well with this package. It works with the package they just got rid of though. And as for Nexstar taking away this look, I agree. Either that or let the station keep the look because there really wasn't inherently wrong with it on WISH. Even if it was made for the station, but wasn't theirs to start with.
  20. Completely agree. The graphics don't look necessarily bad. They look alright. But compared to the last two packages they had, it is a downgrade. I loved that 2015 look, and I agree with you that it still looks good today.
  21. That's a really solid booth. Blackledge is one of the best college football analysts out there, and Noah Eagle is a really good play by play guy.
  22. I didn't mean like a refresh. Those are acceptable, especially when they're done right. I was talking about complete overhauls that just don't look good. You brought up WKYC, and while their current logo still doesn't look great, it looks better with the current graphics package.
  23. Wow. That's pretty damn stupid. But this is good old Uncle Perry we're talking about here lol...
  24. Yeah for WTOV, it would be easy for them. Just simulcast their 10pm news on both TOV and FOX9.2, and you're done. But as for WFMJ, I agree that they should start a 10pm newscast on WBCB, but it took them over 20 years to start a 5pm newscast, if that's any indication on whether or not they actually will.
  25. I get where you're coming from, but some station logos should never be changed. Ever. On the other hand, there are other station logos that need a complete overhaul (see WKYC and WRTV, for example).
