  1. He was on CBS for so long...did the Sunday Night News in the early-mid '90s, and was a chief correspondent through multiple presidents. This came out of left field, especially with the hurricane going on. RIP Bill.
  2. Seinfeld is still on OTA syndication! I'm sure it will be renewed well into this decade and then some. Two and a Half Men surprises me, too. It still gets decent rerun ratings in syndication. KTLA Los Angeles still runs it at 7:30 weeknights, even though Charlie Sheen's last episode was aired in early 2011.
  3. Tons of new stuff to upload...been away from uploading for 2+ weeks because my life is so darn busy. KVEW 12/30/99 sports segment and a bit of KNDU KVEW 1/4/00 and 1/6/00, 'Hoop Train' segments KNDU Live at 11, 1/4/00, with Scott Stovall, still at KEPR. KIMA NewsBeat open, early 1993 KING 5 News following the Seoul Closing Ceremonies, 10/2/1988. A younger Joyce Taylor, David Kerley...and Rich Marriott with a beard?! (he's still there, the last KING meteorologist from my childhood) KING 5 News at 11, 4/4/1988 (partial) - different opening montage on this one. Classic desk pairing - Don Porter, Jeff Renner, Tony Ventrella.
  4. I don't watch televangelist TV. Joel Osteen doesn't need another 5 or 10 new affiliates for his megachurch sermons. HOWEVER...I believe that if a local church wants to stream their services on YT or Facebook for those who can't be there, think about the older audience who are in nursing homes/etc. who also can't make it. Thus, make it available for a 9AM Sun slot on a local TV station as well. In TX and a lot of southern states, there's at least 1-2 churches minimum that sell time on local TV. Here in eastern WA, not so much.
  5. Infomercials and Byron Allen's court shows? Or maybe CBS will give affiliates six episodes of Judge Judy to run per day?
  6. Fox not covering it here, again. KYVE (PBS) is covering the service with no bumpers or chyrons on the screen. Not noticing any coverage on Absolute Radio, Gold, Lyca, or Smooth. BBC radio networks only. Were they not allowed to simulcast the service??? You'd think on Britain's worst day of mourning in decades, that every radio and TV station in England would simulcast the service (well, except CBeebies). Even grocery stores have shut down.
  7. Well, it looks like NewsNation will air the state funeral for the Queen. At least they did something right, heh?
  8. Ring Nation not cleared in Yakima. My prediction: it's going to be 1 and done, maybe less than that... On the other hand, Jennifer Hudson might be the competition that Kelly Clarkson needed post-Ellen. She's doing a great job in her first week! I expect renewals.
  9. The Simpsons has been a 7:30PM staple on KIMA/KEPR/KLEW for 25+ years. There were a couple of years in the early 2000s where The Simpsons didn't air at 7:30, but for the most part it still has a loyal audience in central Washington.
  10. Didn't 'Average Andy' move over there? I wonder if they will let him continue the Halloween haunted house segments. The best thing about him, by far, getting scared by costumed zombies on Ellen's Halloween episodes. Well, until COVID and the bombshell abuse scandals, which led me to stop watching her show altogether.
  11. I just want to make sure - did Kelly Clarkson move into Ellen's old studio or did Jennifer Hudson? It sure looks like Ellen's old set on full display watching Jennifer Hudson earlier today. I see KCYU acquired 'The Neighborhood,' but only in a weekend double-run, 1-2AM Sundays, and Thursdays following MLB baseball. No weeknight time slot. Young Sheldon goes into another year of reruns with no clearance in Yakima. With how much KIMA advertises the Big Bang reruns at 7, it still baffles me why they didn't clear YS reruns. They could have promoted this as 'The Sheldon Hour' after the local news, or something like that...
  12. KIMA/KEPR-DT2 (CW+) will air The Good Doctor, Sat at 7pm KAPP will air 9-1-1 and The Rookie reruns on weekend evenings. KNDO will air Magnum P.I. (2 episodes) at 2:30AM early Sunday morning, and another repeat following Sunday Night Football. iCrime not cleared here. In a HUGE change in Seattle...KIRO-7 says bye bye to Judge Judy after over *20* years, and has started airing a 4:00 newscast (joining the other Big 4 stations). In addition, The List airs at 3PM, and a new show called Afternoon Focus airs at 3:30. Entertainment Tonight and The List are the only weekday syndicated shows left on KIRO. Where did her reruns go? KCPQ.
  13. NewsNation SHOULD HAVE stopped regular programming and AT LEAST SIMULCAST WGN-9 when the announcement broke out... But they didn't. What a joke of a 'network'. Poor Dan Abrams, Marni Hughes, and Leland Vittert. Whenever the time comes to jump ship, do it!
  14. Will CBS preempt Big Brother? It's a double eviction night. In fact, will they break long tradition and share this news with the remaining houseguests? Some may remember when Julie Chen shared news of 9/11 with the houseguests, and the reactions that followed. They very rarely do that.
  15. Absolute Radio - somber music Lyca Radio - somber music Gold - LBC coverage Smooth - I believe also LBC coverage Many other FM/AM regional networks are using IRN (Independent Radio News) which is in rolling coverage.
  16. What's the situation on non-news cable networks in the UK? Gold, Comedy Central, Sky Sports, Discovery, etc.? Are they relaying BBC or a news network, ala 9/11?
  17. CBS ended coverage around 11:30 PT and went back to Y&R, already in progress. ABC and NBC still on.
  18. Univision/Telemundo has been in live coverage since 10:45 or so. I'm not sure about any of the non-news cable networks, like what happened with 9/11...any of them suspending programming and relaying CNN or another network? I don't have cable anymore. Only FM station airing coverage here in eastern WA is the news service of NWPB (NPR) relaying BBC World Service. No other local FMs suspending programming.
  19. In the UK, Absolute Radio has suspended regular programming, airing somber music instead. All BBC radio networks are in simulcasted coverage, Gold (1548 khz) is relaying LBC 97.3. Regular sports talk programming suspended on TalkSport.
  20. Not seeing coverage on my local PBS and FOX stations. Are some FOX stations taking Fox News or another feed? Same w/ PBS? Are the PBS NewsHour people on live? RIP Queen.
  21. If Fredo gets more than 50,000 viewers, I'll be shocked. I wonder where Marni would go if NN gave her the ax.
  22. Gosh, another millennium broadcast...I've been looking for Seattle or Yakima coverage for several years with no luck. I found an hour of early AM 'ABC 2000' on a VHS last year, when Asia was still going into 2000 and there was a partial KOMO 6am newscast on it. But no Pacific time celebration(s) yet. KNDO Yakima had local coverage according to the Ellensburg Daily Record, and all three Seattle stations did the same (IIRC, I believe KOMO did leave ABC 2000 behind at the PT midnight). I do have some new clips, it's been a long time since I've posted anything. KAPP 6PM 3/20/97 (open) and a KCRA lifestyle segment taped 11/2/98, from the Noon news
  23. I don't bother watching the KHQ weekend newscasts on the central WA affiliates. Who in Yakima even gives a crud about a car crash on I-90 in POST FALLS, ID?! Q6 of course never talks about Tri-Cities or Yakima when the Sat/Sun news is on. Local news was dropped on weekends shortly after COVID lockdowns began and they have never returned since. KEPR is the only 'local' news on weekends (simulcasted to KIMA). It still amazes me how over these past several years, Cowles hasn't given Monty Webb and his co-anchor 2 extra hrs. of pay on Fox 11/41 doing Wake Up Northwest instead of the KAYU Good Day Spokane show. Isn't that what a lot of stations do? KING 5 Seattle for example. News from 4:30 'til 7, then moves to their sister IND KONG 'til 9. It's been that way for nearly 20 years. Anyways, off topic. So through a change of stations, they still aren't 'live' with the east coast and WABC. Heh, it could be worse. For a blue moon circa 2003-2004, KAPP Yakima aired Regis & Kelly at 3pm!!
  24. Yakima / Tri-Cities KAPP - Already started clearing You Bet Your Life with Jay Leno yesterday at 4PM (will move to 2PM). Double run. Access Daily (9/12 11AM) KIMA-DT2 (CW) - Karamo at 10AM, We the People with Lauren Lake at 6-7PM (prime access court show? Isn't this one of Byron Allen's fake shows?) KCYU - American Housewife double-run 12:05-1:05AM, Mom goes away (gone for good from syndication??), Two and a Half Men moves to 11:35 (they were at this timeslot about 5 years ago), Mike & Molly and 2 Broke Girls leaving for good (confirmed nationwide). Pictionary double-run 10-11AM. KNDO - Sherri at 11AM replacing Wendy Williams' 'Guest Host of the Day'. NBC News Daily will be cleared and not preempted for other syndicated shows. NBC Right Now Local News at 4 begins 9/12! First time ever that central WA has done 4PM news. Welcome to the 21st century!
  25. When people were still recording to VHS and watching on a 25-inch tube TV either on a 50-channel analog cable system or with rabbit ears. Nothing gets 30 million viewers a night anymore except for NFL Football. What will be interesting is to see if they go through with this and how many stations add local news at 10 vs. syndicated shows. Will the ratings match up to Fox/netlet stations that have news? In my market, the NBC actually produces the 10:00 news for Fox, but only weeknights - weekends is a straight simulcast from Spokane (3 hrs away) on both Fox (from KAYU) and NBC (from KHQ-TV). Meanwhile, in small and medium markets, the local revenue is drying up. Anyone can look up the news on their phones and most people 25-54 aren't watching TV news at all. On cable, while Fox News holds the fort at #1, only 1/3 of those viewers are under 55. How long before we see a purge of affiliates going defunct for good? Late 2020s? Early 2030s? Once the revenue dries up, the stations in market #160 can't keep broadcasting. Maybe even #100.
