  1. https://deadline.com/2024/01/paramount-global-byron-allen-offer-1235809354/ the two parties have been pretty chummy as of late.
  2. I bet WPXI will try to air it at 3pm. JJ used to always win its timeslot against 2 and 4. Even beating Oprah, of course the Pittsburgh market is older and quirky. GMA consistently beats Today and Guiding Light got consistently strong ratings until the end.
  3. WPXI People Puzzler replaces Ring Nation at 1:30 and Drew Barrymore replaces Rachael Ray at 2.
  4. I didn't realize Miss USA was off network television for so long, I assumed it aired on Fox after they picked up Miss Universe from NBC. Apparently not.
  5. Just discovered KDKA has a 2.5 now- Catchy Comedy. Movies! is now on sister station WPKD 19.4 replacing the Dabl duplicate which replaced Circle.
  6. WPNT 22 still seems like the ultimate outcome for the CW. On the AVS forum someone claimed they were told at the station last week that they were switching over.
  7. WPKD'S interim primetime seems to be a fifth and sixth run of Family Fued at 8 followed by an hour of Friends at 9.
  8. Days infamously films 8-10 months ahead so the other soaps will be affected a lot sooner than days will.
  9. The original divorce was scripted as was Superior Court and The Judge. All three claimed to be based on actual cases. Do we know if this is the case with byron's shows or do they just make it up from scratch?
  10. Strong sweeps month for WTAE
  11. New local talkshow "Talk Pittsburgh" will take dr. Phil's 3pm timeslot starting march 20th. Dr. Phil will finish his run on kdka's sister station wpcw at 5pm replacing the also cancelled people's court. Also, a few hours ago i noticed a new 11.4 on wpxi's signal. Currently its the PCNC (Pittsburgh Cable News Channel) aka PiCNiC channel.
  12. Are the scripts at least based on real court transcripts like the original divorce court, the judge and superior court were bavk in the day? I could see it being more economical using actors as opposed to flying people in from all over. Not my cup of tea for sure.
  13. Weigel Broadcasting Co. is flipping its digital broadcast network Decades into the sitcom-centric Catchy Comedy on March 27, Variety has learned exclusively. The over-the-air network will focus on a library of classic comedies, with an emphasis on key female stars including the signature shows from Lucille Ball, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Burnett. But also central to the Catchy Comedy lineup are key series from Norman Lear, as well as some of the most lauded sitcoms of all time – including the original “Night Court,” which is back in the spotlight thanks to the success of the revival series on NBC. Unlike Decades, which wasn’t measured by ratings, Catchy Comedy will be Nielsen-rated. “That takes it into a different sphere, in terms of advertiser availability and access,” said Neal Sabin, vice chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co. “There are many advertisers that won’t look at these networks unless they’re rated, and we’re pretty confident that we have something here that will rate well.” https://variety.com/2023/tv/news/decades-network-catchy-comedy-night-court-1235521267/
  14. 11 has favored saturday jepoardy for a long time, at least a decadd but probably longer. For many years they aired a "classic" judge judy after jepoardy during the non-football season.
  15. Also, the same station that chose to air kelly clarkson at 3am in favor of Right This Minute at 1pm.
  16. Its not, but I think this is more of a slam on RingTv leading off an hour against kelly clarkson and dr phil. Hence Jeopardy Secondary is now leading into RingTv. Prob fogure 5th hour of today would do less harm as a lead-in than an hour led by a half-hour Amazon commercial.
  17. Looks like WPXI reshuffled things around with jeopardy second run at 1 instead of 3:30 then dish nation instead of 3pm. NBC News Daily now airs at 3 instead of 1 (where they aired days for many years) leading into the news at 4.
  18. I like the abc tweaks, makes it a little bolder. Hate the miniscule cbs eye. The peacock doesn't look right without the white. I liked their 1980 peacock the best with the tail feather and two feathers for each color.
  19. https://www.The Other Site.com/2022/12/07/nbc-new-peacock-logo/ NBC Updates the Peacock. Removes white border and changes font. Peacock beak extended. Like ABC a couple uears aho, the tweaks are made with mobile devices in mind.
  20. Good. LMAD is a natural pairing with TPIR in the AM.
  21. The network stations should pull the 10/9 newscasts off the Fox stations. Let the Fox stations invest in their own news departments or resort to old Coach reruns.
  22. This article seems to think that it's practically a done deal.. https://tvnewscheck.com/journalism/article/with-nbc-near-certain-to-cut-primetime-prepare-for-a-10-p-m-news/
  23. Why not? People watch the Olympics. Plus its gotta achieve a broader audience than what they have now.
  24. I admit I was wrong, I really like this new arrangement. It has more of a sense of urgency than the original, the "bed" portion is also well done.
  25. They'd have to unload a bunch and streamilne.
