  1. "Apparently, the woman complained to CNBC executives that Matthews made inappropriate jokes and comments about her in front of others, that the matter was looked into and it was determined that the comments were inappropriate and in made in poor taste, but were never meant as propositions." http://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/nbc-news-settled-sexual-harassment-complaint-against-chris-matthews-in-1999/352300 “In 1999 this matter was thoroughly reviewed and dealt with. At that time Matthews received a formal reprimand,” an MSNBC spokesperson told the parent company in an email on Saturday.
  2. Archived Twitter Feed...
  3. Haven't seen the promo you are referring to but WABC has used that tagline for years. And stations in New York have used similar promos...
  4. http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/17/media/billy-bush-leaves-nbc/index.html?sr=twCNN101716billy-bush-leaves-nbc1120PMVODtopLink&linkId=30048203 Well GMA gets the last laugh because while everyone was saying Michael would fail, Billy's the one without a job and the Today Show is the one missing a 3rd hour host now. I'm interested to see who, if anyone, replaces Billy.
  5. A bit disappointed Laura didn't get the gig but seems like a good add for WABC.
  6. I gotta give credit where credit is due... The View this season is a really great program. I now is a good time if Whoopi is ready to go, Joy should be able to hold the fort down with Candace, Sara, Sunny and Jedediah. Paula is frankly a hot mess, not mean for a show like The View and she's gotta go, Raven is good as it seems she's on once a week (Fridays). It may be the election coverage but the program is really entertaining and thought provoking again.
  7. Can you please stop posting your distaste for Michael every few days. You said the same thing on Monday, it gets old to read.
  8. That's also only the second week out of the Olympics. Don't get me wrong ABC has a problem it needs to fix, primarily the demo, but all your doing is really hyperbolizing the situation.
  9. I watched yesterday morning and I thought it was decent. I think give them some time to work out the kinks and it could work well. I give them credit, the first hour is MUCH better than it's been for the past two years, hopefully they keep the newsier first hour after the election ends. I'm interested to see what Lara's role is when she returns. My guess is she'll still have a big presence in the second hour with Michael. I wonder if as "co-anchor" she'll sit next to George when the show opens, when she gets back or if it'll just be Robin, George and Michael. Also, if you ask me, I think Amy would be a great replacement eventually for Robin (whenever she does decide to leave, be it in 20 years...). If you ask me, Amy is a great anchor at ABC, and she's improved so much since she joined the network.
  10. Everyone's acting appalled and surprised but is this not what we've been expecting for a while now?
  11. The Chew has been doing very well, I definitely don't see them canceling it anytime soon. General Hospital... it is a soap and so of course everyone will say to cancel it but it also does very well and I don't see them canceling it right now... maybe down the road.
  12. At the start of the 7:30am half hour today, George announced that they would be broadcasting even more news in the half hour. GMA is serious, I'm curious to see what they do come fall 2016.
  13. Now that sounds like a good panel. Looking forward to Raven and Michele's departures. I do enjoy Candace on the show though and i'll miss her on it.
  14. I'm sure she was, I'm sure ABC knew what they were doing when they added Paula. By those same standards, Barbra Walters shouldn't be considered a journalist either... but I'm sure everyone would disagree and be up in arms with that.
  15. I think we can say for sure that Candace and Joy will be back next year. Raven, Michele and Whoopi are all candidates to be dropped. Paula could be dropped but if they are going to drop the three I just mentioned, they may not want to make it four. I think a panel of Joy (moderator), Candace, Sunny Hostin, Paula (connects very well with Sunny) and one other would be very good.
