  1. I really wish they would have finished out the season. At least I got some discounted merch from Dick's Sporting Goods after the closure. It's throwback now!
  2. What was the situation that caused that to happen? I did a quick Google search and couldn't find anything about it.
  3. The most offensive part of the closure is that it is not finance related. They had enough money to finish out the season, but primary owner Tom Dundon decided to pull the plug early.
  4. I also posted this in the March Madness thread, but it's relevant here too. AAF ratings for the TNT game are in: 340k total. The NFLN games weren't in the Top 50 in Sports for the first time. Not surprising given how much basketball was on this weekend. EDIT: Forgot relevant link. http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/skedball-weekly-sports-tv-ratings-3-18-3-24-2019.html
  5. March Madness ratings are in, and it looks like CBS/Turner are big winners this week. http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/skedball-weekly-sports-tv-ratings-3-18-3-24-2019.html
  6. WBAY airs Pawn Stars at 11am and 11:30am, Action 2 News at Noon, Paid Programming at 12:30pm, General Hospital at 1pm, and Strehan and Sara at 2pm. They used to air The Chew on a day delay too so that they could air it earlier in the day. 11am, if I recall?
  7. I hope in future years they'll do a better job spacing games out in primetime during Round 1. I felt like three of the four games started and ended at roughly the same time both nights. I also wish they would bunch the Round 2 games together like they do on Thursday/Friday, so that I could have a life for a few hours without missing games. That being said: the games today have been REALLY good.
  8. I think the NFL is starting to realize that with streaming and other options that people are willing to seek out the games they want to see. (At least I hope they are.) Now if we could only get Sunday Ticket at a reasonable price and without having to have DirecTV...
  9. If they keep having games like last night (Birmingham Iron beat the San Diego Fleet with a last second field goal) I think the ratings will only continue to improve. As a football fan, I'm glad that CBS sees that this is a viable lead-in for March Madness.
  10. I'm curious what WGBA and WTMJ would do if "The Now" gets axed. Would they just extend the 6:00 news and keep it under the Live at 6/6:30 moniker, or show a completely different program?
  11. https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/2019-03-11/turner-sports-and-cbs-sports-announce-2019-ncaa-division-i-mens Here are the commentators for each region of this year's tournament.
  12. Good point -- the overlap occurs in Wisconsin with WGBA Green Bay and WTMJ Milwaukee too. Cities in between get both.
  13. Could it be something where they're trying to prevent confusion in areas where the markets overlap?
  14. TNT is picking up two AAF games originally set to air on Bleacher Report. March 9th - Orlando Apollos (4-0) vs Birmingham Iron (3-1) March 23rd - Orlando Apollos (4-0) vs Atlanta Legends (1-3) https://awfulannouncing.com/turner/tnt-adds-more-aaf-broadcasts-br-live-skycam.html
  15. Thank goodness. I don't think Witten added anything of substance to the broadcasts. The favorites to replace him are Kurt Warner and Peyton Manning. https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/nfl/cardinals/2019/03/01/monday-night-football-candidates-kurt-warner-espn-football-analyst/3029659002/
