Re: NBC Thursdays

I love Superstore, but even though it had good ratings, for the life of me I could never find another actual person that watched the show.

I thought the finale was very well done, and a great ending to the show.

Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

I saw just a bit of Couric and just couldn't stand it. If she was the permanent host I would probably never see the show again. I'm not sure who's on this week. Speaking of Drew Carey... WTF is up with that "David Letterman" beard look??? TERRIBLE!! I thought Couric was really bad. She’s a perfectl...

Re: Loss of Limbaugh, Retirement Of Beckman And Others, May Force Changes At WJR

(Interestingly, WJR also reacted to McCarthy's death with another significant hiring—Mitch Albom. In October 1995, he was hired for the 4-6 p.m. slot, starting in January 1996) Don’t forget about Ken Calvert joining WJR around that same time. Late mornings. I do believe. Thanks.

Re: ESPN / NHL Reach A Deal

Wow - NBCSN is screwed! They can kiss what little audience they have good bye. It’s not really that impactful to NBCSN, since they had already announced a month ago that they were ceasing operations this year. If NBC had held onto NHL rights, the games would have been shifting to the USA Network. h...

Re: Alice 106.7

They had a Sunday morning show, “Alice’s Restaurant”, which competed with WCSX’s “Sunday Mornings Over Easy” program. I enjoyed that. Well, I enjoyed both programs.

Re: Will WJR Soon Drop Talk For All News?

You are aware that Mr. Limbaugh has stage 4 lung cancer, right? Once his personal health forces him to retire, I agree that scores of conservative talk stations will have a very sizable ratings hole to fill. If frequent guest host Mark Steyn were to eventually take over Rush’s show, I think he coul...

I enjoy Thursdays and Fridays when it's Deena , Lee and Ryan. The 3 of them seem to gel well and there's more humor involved .
Deena is the straw that stirs the drink.
Totally agree. It’s only watchable when it’s the Deena Show.

Re: Jeopardy

Ken did a great job as host last night. He was very calm and collected, and did a great job during the contestant interviews. He talks slightly faster than Alex, but I didn't mind it at all. I agree, I thought he did quite well for his first time out the gate. I felt, at times, it sounded like he w...

Top annoyance, the constant COVID-19 radio commercials with that gloom and doom woman's voice. Seconds into the ads I leave.

WDIV seems to be airing a greatly out-of-sequence Jeopardy this evening (Dec 1).
Yes! I noticed that too.

In fact, I was just wrapping up my strongly worded complaint to WDIV. I wonder if they flip-flopped the daytime repeat that they rarely even air, and the evening version.

Re: Jamie Edmonds needs to be bumped to WDIV's full time sports anchor

Jamie Edmonds is great with sports. Her reporting is professional and she knows what she's talking about. I love watching her do sports reports. It might be time Bernie hang it up. He doesn't report anything. His "we've got highlights" is so beyond stale. Weekend at Bernie's and whatever filler vid...

Re: Local 4 expands to 1 PM

Perhaps nobody wanted to buy infomercial time in the 12:30-1:00 PM slot. At my old worksite a few years ago, many of us would watch Jeopardy! in the 12:30 slot. Sometime later, WDIV would sell a half-hour infomercial slot instead of Jeopardy! replays, knowing that viewers would be lazy enough to ju...
