Re: It’s time for Fox to expand its lineup

Fox did have a national version of Good Day Live from 2001-2003. I forgot about this. It was cancelled due to low ratings. I say put Fox and Friends or another news program in the 7-9am timeslot. They could revive Good Day Live nationally and put it at 10 or 11 am. And, don’t give up on it so easily...

Re: Should Detroit be home to an ABC and NBC O&O too?

We all see how well the CBS O&O is going - not even a suitable newscast- compare that to WJBK circa 1979 when their news, as a CBS station, could compete along side Bonds, Kelly, Turner, Ackerman. Well, WXYZ was an ABC O&O in 1979, and they were tops in the Detroit market. WJBK is doing great as a ...

Re: Should Detroit be home to an ABC and NBC O&O too?

I can deal with WXYZ going back to being an ABC O&O, as I feel the station still operates as an network O&O, even after 33 years. However, I’m not sure if I could deal with WDIV being an NBC O&O. The station is insufferable enough as it is. I’m concerned it would be even more unbearable as an NBC s...

It’s time for Fox to expand its lineup

I find it weird for a major network to air only two hours of programming six nights a week, and only three hours on Sunday evenings. I can understand them doing this in the 1990s, as Fox was an up and coming network. But, doing this in the 2010s doesn’t make sense. I know they are expanding their sp...

Michael Cohen hearing on CBS, ABC, and NBC

Channels 4, 7, and 62 are showing this fiasco! All but Fox 2 is airing this.

I am so sick of the theatrics.

Enough is enough!!

That's mostly correct. Although, a minor detail is that CBS didn't buy 62 until a few years after CBS obtained their affiliation.

Remember, "Punch 62, CBS!"

Actually, CBS purchased 62 in 1995, just months after the affiliation swap of 1994

Re: CBSDetroit62

I think getting rid of the CBS 62 brand and going by CBS 15 or CBS 3 would be a great idea

Re: Whitmer vs. Fox2

Ever since 1997 (the year WJBK became a Fox O&O), the station has ran tabloid style newscasts. This is the same station that airs crap like TMZ, Dish Nation, and Page Six TV. This is no surprise, here.

What if WJBK aired Fox Kids

As we all know, all the former New World stations, including WJBK in Detroit, WJW in Cleveland, and WAGA in Atlanta, all refused to air Fox Kids when the stations switched to Fox in 1994. Instead, all of their stations either expanded their newscasts, or ordered more syndicated program. At the time,...

Dr. Phil at 5 pm

Does anyone have the ratings for Dr. Phil in the Detroit market? I was asking, because it’s at a very prime spot, and it goes directly against the news for 2, 4, and 7. The show must have strong ratings for it to go directly against the big three like that. Also, whoever decided to put Entertainment...

Re: Rob Parker's Tom Brady antipathy.

I’m not a Patriots fan, but what Parker is saying is beyond ludicrous. The guy hates Michigan. That’s the issue! He’s also an arrogant prick. There’s a good reason why ESPN fired him.

Re: Local news returning to CBS 62?

I don’t think CBS even knows how to run a news division. We see what disasters their O&O tv stations really are. Not to mention, the CEO of CBS is a dirtbag and a lowlife. They need to sell stations like KDKA, KYW, and WWJ to better owners so they can either rebuild or restart the news divisions at ...
