  1. Among markets in Michigan: Detroit, Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo, Lansing, and Traverse City-Cadillac are Wheel first, then J!; while Flint-Saginaw, Marquette, and Alpena are J! first, then Wheel.
  2. Some more Detroit updates I found for the week of September 26, all WMYD: -iCrime: 11 PM and 3 AM -Ring Nation: Sunday nights (technically Monday mornings) at 1:30 AM -We the People: 11 AM and 11:30 AM
  3. More Detroit updates: -Magnum PI (2018): WWJ, Saturday nights (technically Sunday mornings) at midnight -The Rookie: WXYZ, Saturday nights at 11:30 PM -911: WMYD, Saturday nights at 11 PM iCrime, Ring Nation, and We the People are not cleared here.
  4. As of today, WWJ-TV has rebranded from CBS 62 to CBS Detroit, and First Forecast is now NEXT Weather.
  5. Here's what's changing in Detroit: WJBK: Sherri at 1 PM, replacing The Real. Two additional reruns of Judge Judy will (for now) replace Wendy Williams at noon. WDIV: Jennifer Hudson at 3 PM, replacing Ellen. WXYZ: Pictionary at 1:30 AM (yikes!), replacing DailyMailTV. WMYD: Karamo at 4 PM, replacing Judge Jerry. WADL: Rick Wiles Today is replaced at 4:30 AM by an additional run of Forensic Files and at 7 AM by Recipe.TV. The First 48 moves to noon, replacing Dateline (which will still air at 1 PM and 7 PM). Replacing it in the 2 PM hour are Impractical Jokers (which moves from WKBD) and Friends. Paid programming (??) at 12:30 AM, replacing one run of Friends, and at 3 PM, replacing one run of The Liquidator (which will still air at 3:30 PM). WKBD: To replace the departing Impractical Jokers, a second run of Funny You Should Ask will be added at 8 AM. Replacing 2 Broke Girls in the midnight hour is American Housewife. Replacing Mike & Molly in the 4 PM hour is The Neighborhood. A second run of Seinfeld will be added at 2 AM, replacing The Goldbergs. Despite rumors, Schitt's Creek will still be at 2:30 AM. WWJ: Reruns of Nick Cannon will inexplicably remain at 3 PM. Both half-hours of Drew Barrymore will still occupy the 4 PM hour, and encores replace The Doctors at 3 AM. These changes are likely interim, as both WWJ and (to a lesser extent) WKBD will have to do some shuffling to accommodate the launch of CBS News Detroit.
  6. Sherri Shepherd is coming to WJBK September 12th, most likely replacing Wendy at 12 PM.
  7. These "News Now" titles must be interim titles, but yeah I wouldn't be surprised if these will be produced at KTVT.
  8. WKBD has always had one airing of Schitt's Creek at 2:30 AM late weeknights, which is more proof of how little faith was put into the show's syndie run.
  9. What baffles me (other than how it ended up on a subchannel of a Me TV affiliate) is how sudden and abrupt this affiliation announcement was.
  10. According to this article, WJBK anchor Huel Perkins is planning to retire next year, and Monica Gayle may retire with him. https://deadlinedetroit.com/articles/28964/detroit_fox_2_anchor_huel_perkins_plans_to_retire_next_year_--_monica_gayle_may_follow
  11. This creates a precarious situation for WJBK. They have Wendy while Nick is on WWJ. Would WJBK be willing to take Nick from WWJ?
  12. WMYD will be airing Chicago Fire followed by Law & Order SVU in primetime starting September 20 to replace My Network programming.
  13. WMYD will air MacGyver at 6 PM on Saturdays, replacing Storm of Suspicion (and thus prone to potential preemptions for a few Saturdays per year for Detroit City FC broadcasts). WWJ will be airing Bull twice, 12:30 AM on Saturdays and 1 AM on Sundays. They will also be airing SEAL Team twice, 11:30 PM on Saturdays and midnight on Sundays. Zap2It had no listings for syndicated SWAT and The Good Doctor.
  14. WADL will be airing Highway thru Hell at 3 AM, The Liquidator x2 at 3 PM and Storage Wars x2 at 4 PM. They are also restoring a double-run of Friends at 9 PM, likely as a stopgap measure before it picks up MyNetworkTV on 9/20. Even though the Young Sheldon syndication website mentioned it airing on WKBD, it was nowhere to be found on its new schedule. Speaking of which, WKBD will replace the outgoing Jerry Springer by moving forward Judge Mathis, and in turn expand its late afternoon sitcom block by one hour using double runs. The 11 PM airings of The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men have been swapped between WKBD and WWJ. Apparently Access Daily will be airing on both WMYD (11 PM) and WADL (10 AM) and The Doctors will be airing on both WMYD (11 AM) and WWJ (3 AM).
  15. You Bet Your Life gets a late night timeslot on WJBK at 11:30. WNWO will have it at 3 PM. Going to WMYD and WUPW.
  16. Detroit: WADL airs Monk at 5 PM and midnight on weekdays, and at 2 PM on Sundays.
  17. Schitt's Creek is nowhere on WJBK's schedule either, which leads me to suggest that it's likely being used as filler for short-running sports on weekends or for weekends with no sports at all.
  18. WMYD just ran an ad announcing Tamron Hall's move to WXYZ at 10 AM on Monday.
  19. For now, WMYD is keeping it in the 7 PM hour.
  20. Here's the full list of weekday schedule changes in Detroit effective 9/14 courtesy of Zap2It. WMYD: Jerry Springer returns to the station after a couple years. It will air at 1:00 AM (replacing two episodes of Caught in Providence) and at 10:00 AM (replacing two episodes of The Verdict with Judge Hatchett). Of course, it still airs on WKBD as well. The overnight airing of Maury will now be right at 2 AM, replacing DailyMailTV. Justice with Judge Mablean, one episode of Caught in Providence, Chicago PD, and The Verdict with Judge Hatchett will air from 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM, replacing infomercials. The Doctors, the same episode that had just concluded on WXYZ (the other station of the Scripps duopoly), will air at 11:00 AM, replacing Tamron Hall. The station has acquired Access Daily from WADL (see below for their changes), and it replaces Chicago PD at 11:00 PM. WADL: Intervention at midnight (replaces Access Daily), Cheaters moves a half-hour early to 1:00 AM, and it's previous 1:30 AM spot is taken by Law & Crime Daily. Balancing Act replaces one run of ES.TV at 6:00 AM, displaced from 7:30 AM, which is where a second episode of Law & Crime Daily will be airing. The First 48 airs at 10:00 AM (replacing True Crime Daily) and at 4:00 PM (displacing the two Forensic Files runs an hour earlier at 3:00 PM, replacing Protection Court). Two additional airings of Friends will replace Access Daily in the 5:00 PM hour, in addition to the existing 9:30 AM airing. WKBD: Impractical Jokers and Funny You Should Ask move from 4:00 AM (with infomercials replacing those two) to 8:00 AM, replacing one episode of Jerry Springer. WWJ: The Dr. Oz Show moves an hour early to 3:00 PM to replace the cancelled Mel Robbins Show to make room for Drew Barrymore, which will air at 4:00 PM. With these changes, DailyMailTV and Tamron Hall will no longer be cleared in the Detroit market.
  21. According to TitanTV, WADL is the only station currently shown on there with scheduling changes effective September 14: Balancing Act replaces one run of ES.TV at 6:00 AM, displaced from 7:30 AM, which is where Law & Crime Daily will be airing. The First 48 airs at 10:00 AM (replacing True Crime Daily) and at 4:00 PM (displacing the two Forensic Files runs an hour earlier at 3:00 PM, replacing Protection Court). Two additional airings of Friends will replace Access Daily in the 5:00 PM hour, in addition to the existing 9:30 AM airing.
  22. Drew Barrymore times in Michigan: WWJ (CBS, O&O, Detroit): 4pm and 3am WXMI (Fox, Scripps, Grand Rapids): 10am and 2am WJRT (ABC, Gray, Flint-Saginaw-Bay City): 3pm WTVG (ABC, Gray, Toledo): 9am on DT2 (The CW) and 3pm on the main channel WSYM (Fox, Scripps, Lansing): 9am on the main channel and 12am on DT4 (MyNet) WPBN/WTOM (NBC, Sinclair, Traverse City-Cadillac-Alpena): 2pm WLUC (NBC, Gray, Marquette): TBA
  23. Longtime WJBK anchor Sherry Margolis is retiring next week. She has been with the station since 1984.
  24. Fox Corporation is apparently in a dispute with virtually every small-sized cable provider in the country. https://www.facebook.com/wyandottemunicipalservices/posts/3069526503061527?__xts__[0]=68.ARDKh5gyD4JgkSJFMbDOIAZvi9pWOEXfwN5kf5wBZUIYSAy6LFzw1Ly3PIQtyzlR8n8BQtuHkQ3KSmwJzDjAA7rsSNdH5mgbLmEe0u3QJ2wajh6bcFin4fXJ9UMaPiJeaouXAGlerXS-Ec8NZ1-L0JCzOC_2FieELj7Wwh3AIYe8WjKe2gz3bMhd1ewbxZiix1vIhjgNFkiSmHOoG6EloFzdv2yqxmkClciFHVo4_xz2Xg2G9ftrPRja3yAlEFiHD391PeUjaD-2OpmA1hWj0jz14Jol6Etb1tIUZqfuiU52tf4Ymj7NF5wgZVsQMxrkrdDtvO3-QuFFsse4AA7Bsg&__tn__=-R
  25. Right now, half of the nation's satellite subscribers are without CBS. CBS O&Os? Out. Nexstar-owned CBS affiliates? Out. Meredith-owned CBS affiliates? Out. KSWT Yuma-El Centro, KVIQ-LP Eureka, and WXVT-LD Greenville-Greenwood. All owned by Northwest Broadcasting, whose stations have been off of AT&T services since freaking February. Watch ratings for Big Brother drop, and watch as other broadcasters may end up in new retransmission disputes, potentially cutting off CBS access to even more satellite subscribers.
