  1. TMZ actually reported that today, and they also said that Amy & T.J. were made aware of that decision this morning. The story I read even has quotes from ABC News President Kim Godwin on the subject (supposedly, these quotes were from an editorial meeting at ABC News this morning). Unfortunately, I don’t have the link, but if you Google “TMZ Holmes Robach,” it should be one of the first stories that come up…..
  2. How long do contracts like these last (or specifically, contracts like the ones HLN has with cable companies), I’m curious? I’m not one to speculate, but I’m guessing the future of HLN can’t be good once the contracts you mentioned expire….
  3. Since Scripps owns the MTN (Montana Television Network) group of stations, I just thought I’d post it here…. Pretty disturbing story about their political reporter, Ashley Nerbovig (you may want to click on the affidavit in the story surrounding her arrest—it’s pretty bizarre!!): https://montanatalks.com/montana-tv-political-reporter-arrested-on-burglary-charge/
  4. That’s weird; I thought the show went out of production not long ago (unless WGN had a deal with the syndicator for another show and that fell through and the syndicator decided to give them this instead)…. On a related note, being that WGN has Friends at 3p and the station serves as the Chicago home of Antenna TV and Rewind TV, I wonder why the station didn’t lease any sitcoms from those networks to fill the 2p slot. I’d have gone with either Three’s Company or the Jeffersons to pair with Friends on the WGN schedule. Granted, these sitcoms may not draw a lot of viewers, but still, WGN’s move with Paternity Court reruns at 2p is a head-scratcher, I think….
  5. Interesting news. I don’t think KIRO is trying to be a Scripps station; my guess is there are some people who used to work at KIRO that now work for Scripps or vice versa, and they had a hand in getting “Afternoon Focus” and “The List” on the station. Maybe I’m wrong…..
  6. I mentioned Afternoon Focus in an earlier post. Here’s an article explaining it in detail (and the stations that’ll be carrying it): https://tvnewscheck.com/programming/article/scripps-local-media-and-scripps-networks-collaborate-to-launch-afternoon-focus/
  7. [info courtesy of Zap2It] For the Lafayette, LA market: —KATC: -Drew Barrymore remains at 9a (with both half-hours back-to-back; weird, I know) -Jeopardy! moves to 3p, with Inside Edition moving to 4:30p -The List airs at 3:30p (it had previously aired in the overnight hours) -A program called Afternoon Focus will air at 4p (this must be a Scripps-produced program, being that I saw in a previous post that WTMJ in Milwaukee is carrying it) -25 Words or Less airs at 12:35a —KLFY: -no changes —KADN: -Back-to-back episodes of Pictionary replace Maury at 3p -The Neighborhood (back-to-back eps) replace Daily Mail TV and Mike & Molly at 10p -American Housewife (back-to-back eps) at 1a -Modern Family moves to 11p, with Two & a Half Men at 12 midnight —KLAF: -NBC News Daily replaces Days of Our Lives at 1p -a run of The People’s Court airs at 2p, replacing The Doctors (not sure if it’s a placeholder or if it’s permanent) —MyAcadianaTV (KADN 15.3): -another ep of Family Feud replaces Right This Minute at 9a -Highway Through Hell (off-Weather Channel reruns) air at 1p
  8. I think the infomercials are placeholders at 1p on WJW until Karamo Brown’s show starts airing there the next week (as per the show’s website)…..
  9. That makes WSMV the second (?) Gray station to go all news outside of network programming (I know WBTV in Charlotte does this as well)… If it works in Nashville, as it apparently does in Charlotte, one wonders how many other Gray stations might try going all-news outside of network? I can see this working in maybe Louisville, St. Louis, or even Phoenix, probably. Of course, not sure about WGCL in Atlanta…..
  10. Yes (at 7am[!!], according to TVPassport).
  11. Wait: Isn’t Maury Povich calling it quits with his show at the end of this season?? That alone might be the reason why the show will soon be off WJZ’s airwaves…..
  12. Just when you've thought you've seen it all, there's this.......https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/2/25/this-war-is-brought-to-you-by-applebees
  13. Cox Media is adding the Fox-MyNetworkTV duo in Eugene, OR to their portfolio........https://tvnewscheck.com/business/article/cox-media-buying-klsr-kevu-eugene-ore/
  14. It’s possible, but there could be other reasons, too. Then again, to be fair, there are other Tegna stations in Texas that weren’t included in the deal, either (KCEN, KYTX, KIII, & KBMT, just to name a few)…….
  15. Thanks for reminding us on this board about the dreaded V of Doom! (Not sure how many on this board were/have been legitimately scared by the V of Doom before; it is probably the scariest closing logo in television history!) Should one ever come across the V of Doom at the end of a show on, say, MeTV, they have been forewarned!!
  16. The new NFL graphics on NBC are terrific, especially the new score bug (I do like the newer smaller style of the score bug, which doesn't take up a whole lot of the bottom of the screen). Fox and ESPN do use a small style of the score bug, and it's great to see NBC utilize one themselves! The only quirk I have with the new bug is that the "peacock" logo in the middle of the bug is in a gray color, and the only time the color changes is when a penalty flag is thrown (obviously making the color yellow). I'd rather the usual colors on the small "peacock" in the middle of the score bug; of course, this would complement the usual colorful NBC "peacock" bug in the corner of the screen. NFL games ARE brought to us in living color (and in HD) on NBC, you know!!
  17. Thanks for telling me; I forgot all about the sketch! There was also an SNL sketch that poked fun at Jake Tapper & Kellyanne Conway (the sketch was a takeoff of “Fatal Attraction”); Beck Bennett & Kate McKinnon were brilliant in this sketch! (Best part: McKinnon’s delivery of the line “I’m not gonna be ignored, Jake!”).
  18. Glad you brought this up, @iron_lion; there's a GREAT 2016 article by Richard Quest in a magazine called Flying (which obviously is about aviation) that explains the why of CNN's over-coverage, if you want to call it that, of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight you're referring to: https://www.flyingmag.com/vanishing-flight-mh370-inside-story-cnns-coverage/ (It's actually an excerpt from his 2016 book about the missing flight, but it is WORTH the read!!!)
  19. I just started a thread in the Speculatron for predictions on the matter......
  20. I’m not sure the issue is with CBS; the ratings for Y&R have declined over the last several years (as has the entire soap genre itself), so maybe that is the reason why management at WNCN moved Y&R back to midday (and also why KMOV & WAFB moved the show back to midday, as well). Maybe I’m wrong…..
  21. I don’t think it was a CBS mandate; I think the decline in ratings nationally of Y&R (not to mention the decline of the entire soap genre itself to the point that there are only 4 on the air) probably gave management a reason to move Y&R to its in-pattern network time….. It’s probably the same reason WAFB in Baton Rouge moved Y&R from afternoons back to its in-pattern time of 11a (Central Time) a couple of years ago; in their case, the show had aired in the afternoon since the late ‘80s!
  22. You're forgetting Gray (they own WXIX), so it's actually a 4-way battle. I see your point about Cincinnati & Nexstar, though......
  23. KTRK has never aired Wheel; they do air Jeopardy!, though…..
