  1. Maybe the show's staff saw complaints from viewers who liked the old team better and brought some of them back.
  2. You sure it wasn't a rerun from last season?
  3. Seems like Last Man Standing is the first show to have its contract run out.
  4. WUPW in Toledo still airs it. I watched it earlier today.
  5. I never liked Rush as a personality, but love him or hate him, he changed radio as we know it. Many of his stations carried the show for a long time. I also wonder if his persona was an act and if he really believed everything he said. I'm very sad for everyone who knew him as well.
  6. So in other words, CNN will be pretty much be the same with Zucker's strategies still in place.
  7. CBS having the big game this year probably helped its ratings.
  8. I don't know why some media outlets don't have generators these days. One of the local radio owners in my town has had a few power outages, and with multiple stations, that means they all go down at the same time, sometimes for hours on end.
  9. I knew her days were numbered when she wasn't on during the election, and it wasn't her choice. I think she'll be back on TV in about a year, possibly on MSNBC.
  10. WUPW still airs all 3 MGM/Orion shows in repeats, in early and late morning hours. Outside of Byron Allen's shows, we'll be down to Hot Bench, the People's Court, Judge Mathis, and Divorce Court by September for the new season. There seemed to be quite a few more court shows in the 2000's compared to today.
  11. I don't know if there's even room at CNN. Maybe Wolf will retire eventually and Shep will take his place?
  12. Wow. Maybe he still wanted to work during the election as he was fired by CBS in the midst of it and retire sometime after Biden's inauguration.
  13. This is not a good sign being suspended 2 times in a year and a half. It's likely he'll be fired if he breaks another rule again.
  14. Probably not a spot open on Weekdays on MSNBC, as they would have push one of their personalities to a different timeslot.
  15. It seems like a lot of reporters and journalists are dropping like flies suddenly. May she R.I.P.
  16. This is a big loss for ESPN. He was one of the their top baseball reporters. May he R.I.P.
  17. Reminds me when Jim Cantore kneed that guy the one time during his live shot.
  18. A few of the stations in Toledo launched all-weather stations on local cable systems back in the mid 2000's. When the transition to digital happened, they became part of the subchannels. Now, only one, (WTVG) still carries a weather-related channel, running WeatherNation.
  19. Have those two shows been cancelled or just on extended hiatus due to the pandemic?
  20. Same thing with Maria. She used to be one of CNBC'S biggest stars. Now I don't think she talks about business or the stock market anymore. She and Dobbs have both destroyed their careers. Dobbs at 75 will likely retire. I wonder if Maria will be next and more will follow after that?
  21. Robb Webb, the longtime voiceover of 60 minutes and who also announced the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley, has died from COVID-19 complications at 82. He became 60 Minute's announcer in the mid-90's, and did other VO work as well. I've noticed there's been another announcer used lately.
  22. I wonder if their control room is mostly automated. One of the Toledo stations newscasts went to an automated control room, and for a year and a half there were so many technical problems that it was hard to watch. It's pretty much all fixed now.
