  1. Oh I agree. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the black bug and ticker. Now it just looks ridiculously awful.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Yeah it doesn't look all that bad. It might be a little big, but it's not terrible.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Wow. That's pretty damn stupid. But this is good old Uncle Perry we're talking about here lol...
  11. 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.
  12. 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).
  13. Well the new ABC logo has grown on me. I don't really mind it now. The CBS logo bug still kinda bothers me as I think it should be bigger, but that's really much ado about nothing. As for the NBC logo update? A white border around the peacock would make it look better, but it doesn't look all that bad.
  14. Fixed it for you. The NASCAR docuseries aired on USA Network. And as a fan of the sport, I'm excited for this and can't wait to see it!
  15. My guess is that it's probably due to the midterm election tomorrow.
  16. Well KRIV could shift one to sister station KTXH (most likely TNF) but WTXF will really be the one that's screwed by this. We shall see...
  17. Oh I completely agree with you. IMHO, he was a better reporter than he is an anchor. He's not a terrible anchor by any means, but he was much better as a reporter.
  18. John Shumway and David Highfield are still there. How much longer that lasts remains to be seen, but as @Tylersaid, all the other greats have retired.
  19. Yep. Figured that was gonna happen. I mean good for him for standing up for his former co-anchor and friend, but obviously, KTLA management has become very thin skinned, and it's a shame really.
  20. So I posted in the Discord that they've gone back to their longtime brand TV38 again, which I don't know how long ago that started, but still, seeing this doesn't surprise me.
  21. I like it! I do agree with @24994Jabout the bug. It's entirely too big. But other than that, this package looks great!
  22. Honestly, I hope it looks good because the set they just left looked very good. And I don't have a lot of faith in this new owner, but I hope he proves me wrong.
  23. The changes in the fall lineup on the Pittsburgh stations can be found here. WPXI is replacing Judge Judy with some show called Ring Nation hosted by Wanda Sykes at 3 and another run of Jeopardy at 3:30 as a lead-in to their 4pm news. Some of the other changes have already been addressed here, but the full list can be found in the link.
  24. It would not shock me if more news gets added at WPXI. I'm not saying they will, but if they did, it would not be a surprise. It is surprising to see Judge Judy move to WPGH however. I didn't expect that. And Kelly Clarkson's show is obviously getting an audience, or else it wouldn't still be on the air. It shouldn't hurt WTAE's ratings. Hopefully with the show being in a better timeslot in Pittsburgh, it will get better ratings.
  25. It's so simple that it's ridiculous. You have the talent to get out of the ratings basement. It's just little things they can change to make the product better. And I really think they're pushing Sara Shookman out. I thought she did the 11pm too, but maybe Laura Caso does it now?
