  1. Would anyone put it past CNN to recreate the New Day/Cuomo studio at Hudson Yards?
  2. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/13/business/media/cbs-news-60-minutes-divide.html Apparently, 60 Minutes offices aren't even in the CBS Broadcast Center - but across the street in the BMW Building.
  3. Sportsnet recently hired a new president, I assume this could be him putting his stamp on the network - more of a "Sportsnet"-first look during the playoffs. I didn't mind it when they used the 'SN' logos on games that didn't air on CBC and even understood why they went to an all-HNIC brand in 2016 and beyond. I even noticed they changed the circular desk's LED board from an 'NHL' logo to a Sportsnet logo. But, I'd rather see them use the HNIC logo for the CBC games. Today, TSN simulcast their coverage of the Raptors on CTV - to their credit they brought the 90's-era NBA on CTV theme song out of retirement.
  4. Lest we forget when CNN actually did use a desk purchased from Office Max (according to Newscast Studio). https://www.newscaststudio.com/2014/04/17/own-cnns-office-max-desk-today/ But in all seriousness, that's probably the most expensive flash camera studio I've ever seen.
  5. Turns out it was 2013 (I must've stumbled upon this site in 2014). https://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2013/10/26/5032768/texas-tech-oklahoma-heads-to-fox-news-fox-news-viewers-are-angry Fox was airing a World Series game on a Saturday night and there may or may not have been a rain delay - I think the local Fox affiliates in Texas/Oklahoma stayed to the end while other stations went to World Series pregame coverage.
  6. A few Camping World NASCAR truck races aired on Fox Business in 2017. And Fox News was called into duty in 2014 for a college game (that's actually how I first discovered this site - lurked til about 2016/2017).
  7. The 2001-02 Vancouver TV realignment gave us "BCTV News on Global" on CHAN and "BC CTV News" on CIVT. I think CHAN saw value in the name and didn't want CIVT to take it - plus the old Global News, CKVU was using aspects of the brand (graphics, music) til they were sold off. A year later, CIVT simply became 'CTV News' while CHAN stuck with the BCTV title til January of 2006 IIRC and every station adopted their news titles (News Hour, News Hour Final, etc...)
  8. It's supposed to only be conventional over-the-air television stations in Canada that are supposed to be subbed overtop American stations. For years, Bell ExpressVu would sub TSN overtop NBC during Sunday Night Football. I think they were told to stop doing that by the CRTC awhile back, however during the Blue Jays playoff run, Rogers subbed Sportsnet overtop the Fox station from Buffalo in the Ontario market. My personal theory as to why TSN and Sportsnet air programs they can't get a simsub over is that they can market it towards viewers that may or may not know about the basic American stations being available on their cable package - or are confused as to which channel it's on. Plus with more and more viewers cutting the cord - and both TSN and Sportsnet selling their services OTT - it's smart to bulk up on rights.
  9. If anyone is interested - here is a quick cap from TSN's coverage of March Madness (via the ESPN world feed).
  10. I created a gallery of Sportsnet's new look. https://imgur.com/a/kfkyIag
  11. Getting a lot of ESPN vibes from the new look for Sportsnet.
  12. Like the new set at the Rogers Centre (SkyDome if you will). I noticed that the desk in their big studio the other night had a physical version of the Sportsnet logo covering the video tiles. Wonder if there's some other changes being planned. I've wondered why they haven't gone all-in on the hockey look (desks/backgrounds, etc...). They seem to rely on their hockey travelling desk quite a bit.
  13. I've seen the Helvetica box pop up on occasion - but more recently I've seen the box come back but with TSN's preferred font choice. Just for a reference, here's a quick look at what TSN's graphics have looked like since 2016:
