  1. I feel bad for Brooke. I think she has more longevity on CNN compared to Kate or Brianna. I've said before that Zucker is the main problem with why CNN is going downhill. The whole yelling panels haven't worked. As for all new anchors, I would really hate to see staples like Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper leave, although Wolf will probably retire in 5 years or less. (he says he's not ready yet). I think Erin Burnett is better for financial news and always thought she was better at CNBC. I know many people think Jake Tapper should have been the permanent host for "This Week" 10 ye
  2. Her interviews have been decent, including the one with Gillum. As a woman who had bad luck with NBC News, I think Disney doesn't want to do what NBC did so they'll probably keep her on for a few more seasons.
  3. I'm somewhat surprised that Tamron's show got renewed. The show seems to have had mediocre ratings but I guess there's enough of an audience to bring it back. The pandemic didn't treat the show the best either, with interruptions for news conferences.
  4. It seems like a demotion for Brooke if this it's what's happening here. I think she has more name recognition over Brianna and Kate.
  5. I don't think Dukes of Hazzard airs anywhere. It might still be on home video. The only COPS home media there's ever been were best-ofs. Full seasons have never been released anywhere.
  6. I wonder which broadcaster or subchannel might pick it up? It looks like Paramount Network had 3 episodes set to air before dropping the series, and the Spokane episodes will probably be shown in the U.S. eventually. I don't know how many foreigners would be interested in American law enforcement enough to watch it on TV.
  7. I feel really bad for Brooke right now. I know Jake's very qualified for the job, but it looks like Brooke has no say in this whole thing. This seems possibly very shady. They also mention Erin Burnett. Does she even do anything else besides anchoring OutFront or moderating debates on occasion? She seemed to do much more with CNBC compared to now on CNN.
  8. CNBC had pretty much Shep lead the 5 PM hour. Fast Money usually is on at 5. A few of the traders that appear on Fast Money talked for a bit until Shep had more info. Cramer was on for a little while during that time too. Shep eventually took over the coverage full time until the Shark Tank reruns started airing at 8. Nice to see Jeff Glor doing hard news again. I wish he was still on the Evening News.
  9. I agree that WGN breaking into entertainment shows is a potentially risky move, considering that the people that watch those shows aren't likely to also watch News Nation. Although it's all reruns so nothing of value really is interrupted.
  10. I watch the 24/7 Pluto TV COPS channel occasionally, and I'm surprised it's still on the lineup, since it's owned by ViacomCBS which also owns Paramount Network, who cancelled the show in June.
  11. I wonder if it will ever come back at all in the U.S.? I still believe it may come back to syndiation in reruns if not new episodes.
  12. About DIsh, I've always enjoyed their service, but I'm really getting tired of their disputes. I've had them for over 15 years. They claim that networks want to charge them much higher prices, which I don't agree with. But it seems like whenever a dispute happens, most of the time, channels get dropped. And with 7 disputes going on with them, I refuse to believe that it's just the owners of stations, and that Dish has to be part of the problem. It seems like you don't hear about much disputes with Comcast/Xfinity.
  13. Interesting hire. It looks like she'll do all the feel good stories.
  14. Watched the premiere tonight. Shep seemed very happy to be back on the air again. There was a 50/50 mix of CNBC talent and NBC News talent. It's been a few weeks since I watched NewsNation, so I'm not sure if "The News" is better than NewsNation or not. I wish Shep the best of luck too!
  15. I agree. With antennas becoming more popular, why not move all the games over the air for free like they did in the old days, and have the teams themselves produce the games?
  16. RSN's are only good for live sports and team-centric shows, All other content is a dumping ground for stuff that few people care about, like golf tours and air racing, along with low-budget documentaries. Move it all to streaming services and just focus on live sports. All RSN's are a big waste outside of live sports.
  17. It looks like we'll see a lot of CNBC talent who have experience as regular journalists doing general news. I'll definitely tune in tomorrow.
  18. If I remember correctly, Monk used to air in reruns in syndication during weeknights back in the late 2000's and early 2010's, so this marks a return to off-network syndication for the show.
  19. I still hope it will work out well. It's a pretty decent product, but there's obviously some room for improvement.
  20. Quite interesting, especially since the show aired on sister channel Pop.
  21. Yes indeed. He was the biggest person responsible for the Jay Leno-Conan O'Brien controversy, and made NBC have a bad reputation during that time, and he's doing the same to CNN. I have heard many CNN employees were happy about his arrival. Did they not realize his time at NBCUniversal, and how disastrous it was?
  22. The New York Times had an article about Zucker's fallout with Trump. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson decided to keep him in 2018. People in the business gave two theories on why the network's so obsessed with Trump. One theory is that Zucker just wants anything outrageous for ratings. The 2nd theory is that he's just wanting to take him down. It does mention that Zucker's never been a hard news person, and only cares about ratings, corporate success and trying to win. A former NBC exec said that Zucker's quench for ratings blinded him to the point of nonstop coverage. He said it's one thing i
  23. They got a new logo too. Not too bad.
  24. I've seen Dan a few times on GMA Weekend and think he does a great job there. I'm more of a fan of the calm style delivery of news, but I'm guessing more people prefer the more urgent, "shouting" delivery of the news. At least Muir only does it for the opening headlines.
  25. As soon as the ratings go down, something may change. As much as how David speaks dramatically, I think Tom Llamas is even more dramatic and always sounds like he's doing a Shatner impression. Even his facial looks on the air aren't natural. I wish they brought Dan Harris back to weekends, or even give Whit Johnson a chance.
