  1. Now, let's see if they actually treat KDAF like a flagship.....
  2. I've never seen this many people "leave the building" at one time, without it being a takeover/acquisition or an outright closure or folding. So odd. The DFW market has lost this many in recent months at different stations, but not all at once and in one place.
  3. Yet another episode of If It Isn't Broke, Don't Fix It.
  4. The first thing that comes to mind, oddly enough, is Aldi, if they had a single-color logo. One of the big stations in a sizable market, and they go the SMH route. Would be good to see if the station actually caves from all the reaction and tries again with another logo.
  5. Looks like RabbitEars did the dreaded listing for us.... https://www.rabbitears.info/search.php?request=network_search&network=Court+TV
  6. Currently, in Dallas-Fort Worth, KDFW airs Access at 6:30pm, while KXAS shows Extra then. If KDFW starts airing Extra in the fall, wouldn't KXAS be interested in having Access (an NBCU show) on to replace Extra since KDFW wouldn't have the 6:30pm slot available to air Access anymore? The only timeframes KDFW would have for Access, were it to be retained, would be mid-afternoon before Judge Judy, or late late at night after the news and TMZ and Dish Nation. I can't see some dumb true-crime thing doing any better up against the other mags and Wheel.
  7. Ooops. Guess I haven't been keeping up, but Tegna hasn't exactly made them get rid of the hashtag, either.
  8. KXAS has found its replacement for the departed Mark Fein on their morning news. It's Laura Harris, who comes to Fort Worth by way of Atlanta, Charleston (SC), and Tampa. She will co-anchor with longtime KXASer Deborah Ferguson, making up a rare all-female anchor team in the market. https://www.guidelive.com/tv/2019/04/29/laura-harris-nbc5-kxas-channel-5-new-anchor-two-woman-morning-show
  9. KYTX has changed their morning show branding since being part of Tegna, to The Morning Loop. Initially a head-scratcher, but in a slight way it's catchy, as the station is located on Loop 323 (basically a big circular street that surrounds Tyler) at one of its major intersections. I guess you can also think of it as being "in the loop" when you get up in the morning and watch their news. Meanwhile, up the road, WFAA's Daybreak kept their name after being Tegna-ed but makes a huge deal of their hashtag, #IAMUP.
  10. I kept telling some of the Facebook and YouTube commenters just how intertwined Wendy and Mr. Hunter have been regarding the show, her production company, and oh yes--something I've forgotten--the Hunter Foundation, their charity. So, in many ways, Wendy spilling any/all of her own "tea" could have been disastrous for her situation, her show, and the charity. Some were like, "oh yeah, haven't thought of that..." while others weren't ready to stop calling for Wendy to finally be verbal about her own life and situation. The divorce won't be quick, or simple. But Wendy already sounds happier. And, another thing, she revealed this past week she'll be leaving the confines of that sober house she's been staying at in Queens.
  11. 1 or 2, maybe. Definitely less than 5. Without knowing the full scoop, I'm guessing the reason that most exist is that Colgate-Palmolive must have had them archived prior to NBC getting control of the show in 1980. SFM Entertainment was given the syndication deal rights by Colgate-Palmolive/Channelex, and for quite a while they said they were working on a rerun deal. The rampant rumor was that SFM was in talks with Hallmark Channel. But that never materialized. Then suddenly news came that Retro TV got the rerun rights. The airings started, not at the first of the series in April 1963, but in December 1967. I asked a big-wig with SFM about the time of the start of the reruns what timeframe would be the start of the episodes. He said that they were concerned that starting them any earlier than with the December 1967 eps would bring tape quality into play. There was talk initially that there could be a DVD release (or releases) but so far, just the reruns on Retro TV have been what's available to see. They've double-run them since the start, around 5 years ago. If my figuring is correct, the 1977 episodes are likely what is on now. When the news came out that SFM had practically all the episodes of The Doctors, I was astounded. It would be wonderful if other shows, including Another World and The Edge of Night, were suddenly available in full (or nearly), but as of now, thanks to NBC and Procter & Gamble (and CBS/ABC in Edge's case) and their short-sightedness, we have what we have.
  12. Not only has "Big Kev" been shown the door at Wendy, but Wendy is already talking during Hot Topics in the past week by referring to herself as "single", and to her immediate family as "me and my son". So even though the divorce surely isn't final yet, in her mind and on her show, Wendy has moved on. She's even getting contacted for dates and outings already, including by DJ Boof--her show's DJ.
  13. ...which is still being re-run on Retro TV. Currently it is the only past soap getting re-run. I can't believe that almost all the episodes were saved.

  15. I wonder how this will affect Wendy's talk show, since "Big Kev" is an executive producer, as well as a major part of her production company. https://pagesix.com/2019/04/11/wendy-williams-files-for-divorce-from-husband-kevin-hunter/
