  1. Now we have a name and time period information for this. It'll be called THE NATIONAL DESK:
  2. Fox TV Stations have re-upped three strips: 25 WORDS OR LESS; DISH NATION; and DIVORCE COURT, for two additional seasons each, through the 2022-23 season.
  3. I can't speak to the specifics of the contractual language for either of those shows, but it would appear from the durable ratings through the years that CBSTVD's strategy has maximized the value of the show and consistently driven viewership to broadcast stations and their newscasts. A cable window may have diluted that valuable tune-in driver.
  4. Wow: IMDBtv and Amazon Studios have landed the upcoming Judge Judy project. I wonder what CBSTVD has in mind for the rerun library: continue to offer them to stations, or maybe establish a diginet around them?
  5. Allen's latest acquisitions include the multicast/diginets This TV and Light TV from MGM.
  6. I suspect that's a typo in the PR quote and it's meant for fall 2021. But if you count the year they did it as a web-only show, it will still have been a two-year pilot project by the time it launches nationally.
  7. Per your link, they will "offer the show to other station groups for fall 2022". I wonder which station groups will join up.
  8. Ice T and Fox are teaming up again, this time for a conflict-resolution/mediation-style program, being developed with pandemic protocols in mind. A four-week preview is slated for March on some Fox O&Os.
  9. Niecy Nash is circling a daytime talk pilot for CBS.
  10. I agree the omission of an Apple/iOS app is troubling. For what it's worth, users may not be missing much. It's been nearly a week and I have yet to find "News on Tubi" in the Roku or Google Play versions of the app. Curious if anyone has had success testing this out so far.
  11. Perhaps these episodes will someday make their domestic debut on Pluto TV, which quietly continues to carry a 24/7 COPS channel: https://www.pluto.tv/live-tv/cops
  12. Sinclair is staffing up for its national "headline service"-style morning show, designed to air on CW and MyNet stations beginning in 2021. It'll be led by former D.C. anchor Jan Jeffcoat and former Seattle anchor Caye Thompson.
  13. The latest hire for PEOPLE is Gretchen Carlson as special contributor.
  14. My mistake; thanks for the correction. I was thinking of the noon show.
  15. This fall KTLA also made its 1 p.m. newscast permanent, after billing it as a Special Edition launched to handle daily pandemic briefings. In both cases, KTLA benefits from: getting to keep all the ad inventory (as explained above); and not having to deal with makegoods when they choose to pre-empt LA Unscripted for breaking news. Expect this to last at least through the end of the 2020 calendar year, even if it may evolve into a more conventional newscast.
