  1. I'm surprised there was any belief Fox would even dare to implement team-specific fonts to the XFL when the NFL is clearly miles ahead in popularity and ratings. Not expecting anything different if other sports they cover like MLB and college football are treated the same should they get this package. As for the TD graphic above? That's a good place to start if they want to do that for "featured" players in the NFL. Get their best shots from photoshoots or use headshots if that's more convenient for every player, regardless of who is/is not star-worthy. Not sure if I posted the evidence here, but I prefer they just use no image at all like after this TD from the Big Game itself.
  2. Glad I'm not the only one thinking about those fonts....but here's where I disagree on you. My eye test says most of these fonts will work in a team-specific L3...it's something new and refreshing that we don't see with those fonts besides jerseys, other networks' graphics, etc. Now, me personally, I can't imagine that Fox will try to force something outlandish like what you see in the Rams or Eagles script for instance; those are honestly the only two that concern me. At the least, I could see the Rams continuing with the one you see below as that 2000s font has been slowly phased out of use, but that's getting into sports logo speculation if I continue on.
  3. Jennifer Gilbert is set to retire at WBFF in Baltimore. Her last day on the news is 11/26. https://www.baltimoresun.com/features/baltimore-insider/bs-fe-jennifer-gilbert-leaving-station-20191105-bgfffkdfendu3kmmnhzbwimmy4-story.html
  4. I'm only 26 and can do nothing but wish to have remembered and experienced the major swings of affiliates. As much as I'd like to see how crazy the general public would go watching a similar situation go down in present day, there's no more room for another broadcast network to pull a Fox-like move neither a major company looking to swallow up any of the Big 4. Not to mention, the last two major acquisitions that involved the Big 4 (Comcast buying NBCU; Disney getting 20th just this year) had little to no impact on station affiliation (thanks, streaming, cable, and satellite?) I guess there's always the What-If threads of Speculatron to help me find those alternate timelines
  5. Great video on the network's history! Didn't think too much of UPN or watch it until I caught onto SmackDown! in the mid-2000s. I left thinking deep about the future of television considering how the internet has had a helping hand in revamping the vast spectrum and outlook of television on a daily, especially for what will be the future of the broadcast networks. Though, to be fair, it's hard to see any of the current 5 disappear, let alone 6 if you want to include MNT, without pissing off local stations or the shows that look to these networks when they don't want to be just another mainstay on Netflix or Hulu.
  6. I would have credited the start of the trend to Google from the early 2010s when Android tablets and phones (subsequently) started to see a flat-design GUI update in then-recent versions of Android, but a quick glance in the comments says that's much thanks to Microsoft when they brought out the Zune in 2006. Either way, a good insight
  7. WJZ too...it's bug has been 4:3-safe since the big "refresh" last summer Tuned in today and well...my original post did not age well. I didn't know the bug moved. Last I saw it, they had it 4:3-safe for the post-Grammy newscast some weeks back.
  8. Surprised no one shared it, but the network's logo for Tokyo 2020 was revealed earlier this week. [MEDIA=instagram]BowO5xwAn3j[/MEDIA]
  9. I have my doubts that they are keeping the red shade logo. I watched that same game, which is, to no surprise, where I found the promos for their comedy and drama shows. On the other hand, the promos I've seen for games on ABC use the solid black logo. Hence, it wouldn't make sense as the network already abandoned that concept around their scripted shows and the news shows will follow suit soon (the logo is updated in a newer promo for GMA Day). --------------------- On a side note, did anyone watch NC A&T vs East Carolina? I noticed that game still had the previous CFB package based on the 2014 SportsCenter look.
  10. In response to why the ABC logo is blackened in the ticker, it's a network thing. Promos for the shows set to come around in the fall have the blackened logo as well, so unless the news department doesn't follow suit, the color-modded logo is dead.
  11. This is why I miss the early days of NBCSN. I remember they were moving in that direction with a morning show that ran down highlights much like an old-school episode of SportsCenter. Though I didn't watch it much, I was excited for what they could build up. It's just sad that they and CBS are aiming low with the sports on a lower tier than the Big 3. I feel like the perspective they take is that ESPN, despite its recent struggles, is too far established as a network to try and compete with full-force. While that might be the case, the peacock's sports division should definitely take action as you said. Either take advantage of covering more popular sports on a daily basis with MLB, NBA, etc. or shut the network down completely, which I don't think will happen as I doubt things are bad enough at NBCSN to just give up any time soon.
  12. Correct if I'm wrong, but First Take is heading to NYC, which I assume means that show will be out in that studio as well. So I can see one of two outcomes where (1) FT gets a different set in the same building OR (2) gets a space in that same area where Get Up takes place and just have FT start at the wide desk while the Get Up team ends the show standing up elsewhere. On a side note, I think a morning show is kind of a hard sell in the sports television world. ESPN had things in a good place when Mike & Mike was simulcast from their radio feed, but that's no longer a thing now. I would much rather flip SC AM as I wake up to catch my daily sports feed of the day before, but as we know, the information-to-go era has rocked the TV landscape in every way possible, hence why Bristol's own had to come up with a morning show they thought people would make it worth tuning into, if not, keeping up with on social media as many do now a days. I'm guessing their struggle is maybe they are trying too hard to replace M&M by going astray from that style of a sports morning show.
  13. I didn't think the ticker needed an update. The soon-to-be former version seemed clean and simple enough in this era of graphics where you don't need to edgy, flashy things goings on visually and instead keep it as basic as a text box for the most part. I would have thought the 2014 ticker would last 8-10 years at the least.
  14. Watched the EN for the first time since the "EyeOpener" intro debuted. I was surprised and also disappointed. I'm a sucker for news opens, so going from a read of headlines that lead into "This is the CBS Evening News..." to a read of two top stories that bring us to a 1 minute rundown of headlines is a letdown for me because I truly appreciate the classic, old-school ways of not just the news on TV, but shows of all genres. Though I may be an outlier in some ways to my generation of "at your fingertips" and "instant gratification", I do understand why these moves need to be made, even if it does or does not concern Glor's future.
  15. I didn't watch the whole thing (made it in 20 mins or so before fireworks) and I was in the crowd at the museum watching, but I would say it was pretty good overall. Can't say too much as a two-time guest of Philly, but I was impressed nonetheless.
