New News Magazine Program on 9&10 Coming Soon

Post by TheForce » Tue Dec 19, 2017 12:22 pm

Come January 8th, 9&10 News will have a new program called "The Four" at the 4pm time slot. I believe Michelle Dunaway and Charlie Tinker are hosting. I guess it will have stories that don't fit on the regular newscasts or things they don't have enough time for. Don't know much else about it.

Would that be four people at four? WTCM had a show like that a couple of years ago called the three at three. It laid an egg and was discontinued after several months.

Is Ellen moving? Or going bye-bye?

Ellen is Moving to 3...maybe 9&10 will FINALLY give up that infomercial merry go round at 10am and put LMAD on where it should be...

Sounds like one of those shows for old yentas that some of the downstate stations air in the morning.

Isn't that basically what "Upnorthlive Tonight" was on 29&8?

I always wondered about those infomercials. Must have figured it was hopeless to compete with Hoda and Kathie Lee?

9&10 has had infomercials in the 10AM hour for probably 20 years or so!

I despise infomercials. That time slot must get poor ratings.

Really it wasn't that bad from the 20 minutes or so that I saw.

On the Charter TV Guide Channel it still lists Ellen being on at 4. I haven't watched it on TV yet. But as I said I saw a little of the debut stream online.

Overall thoughts on the show so far? I don’t work Tuesdays or Thursdays so I’ve been able to catch a couple episodes. its different but has some enjoyable aspects. Wouldn’t mind it being a half hour tho.

I watched it Monday this week while in Cheboygan...I'm not impressed. It looks really forced and awkward, but it's new, and like all things may take a bit of time for a "groove" among the anchors to form.
