Two political handicappers give Biden the electoral lead

It seems the worst President ever would have to come up with almost twice as many electoral votes as Biden to win. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/03/23/politics/electoral-college-2020-donald-trump-joe-biden/index.html And currently in most of the swing states assclown Trump would have to win, Arizona,...

Re: The Democrat Party Plan To Permanently Tank The Economy

These are the demands the Democrats are making in order to get them to support bailout plan. These bastards are undoubtedly the most horrible people in the country. They are selfish, looking out for their own families and cronies, and not a whit for real Americans hurt by this crisis. https://dbdai...

Re: Could A Noncommercial And Commercial Station Share One Channel Like 6 And 53?

Well... many, many moons ago WILX shared channel 10 with WKAR (or WMSB back then.) Organman is right, yes, noncomm and commercial seem to be able to channel share. WPMT Fox43 and WITF PBS are both sharing digital RF channel 36 in Harrisburg, PA. Both keep their virtual channel number 43 and 33 respe...

Re: FSD technicians told to work at Meijer

What Evan Petzold doesn't mention is that Sinclair has an enormous debt. Sinclair funded the purchase of the regional Fox Sports with $8.9 billion of debt. S&P Global just revised Sinclair's credit outlook to negative. So, unfortunately, this is not a total surprise. They probably don't have the mon...

Re: AT&T Questions Broadcasters' Use of TV Spectrum

Given the fact they payout millions (probably hundreds of millions) of dollars in retransmission fees to TV broadcasters to carry them on their cable and satellite systems and are legally obligated to do so. I would think it'd be a pretty good thing for them if there were fewer TV stations on the br...

Re: Michigan state of emergency!

The main question is what is the government’s role in this? Do you want to be barricaded in your house with next to no freedom? Some suggest doing that. I am more in the personal responsibility camp. I still haven’t changed a thing in my life. Hey did you see the DIA millage passed by more than a 2...

There's a KLQ hockey jersey, postcards from WOOD radio of Willy and the Heritage Hill building, a 'CUZ bumper sticker, a backstage concert pass from 'LAV. And a yo-yo from WOOD TV 8 and coffee mugs...

Re: February 2020 TV News Ratings

I wonder if Fox 2 will consider moving TMZ and Extra. Those shows are getting slammed by Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Ch 7 seems to be weak in the 7pm time slot as well. Ch 7 is getting slammed by the likes of Judge Judy lol. Do you ever know what you're posting about?!?! Judge Judy is the highes...

I notice channel 4 doesn't post WWJ-TV's numbers. I wonder if they're getting beat by Steve Harvey and the Feud at 7pm??? They don’t post them for the same reason they don’t post 20’s... not high enough to rate a mention.. only pity... If that were really the formula then 2's numbers for the entire...

Re: Oakland A's ditching radio,, move to streaming only

Uh, sure. In the real world, the A's - by far the Bay Area's least popular professional team - have zero other on-air options. And they have a bad previous history with stations...ask 95.7 about that! Exactly! The A's brought this on themselves. They claimed they pulled out of sports talk 95.7 beca...

How should you fix 2? Fire the news director. Kevin Roseborough has presided over one of the biggest ratings loss in Detroit television. 2's 10pm newscast a few years ago was the highest rated newscast in the market.
