What kind of shares / HH did the ultimate news team of Bonds, Kelly, Ackerman, Tuner produce on circle 7 in their heyday?

Bonds was polarizing. You either loved or hated him. I personally thought he was a cranky, arrogant drunk.

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 highest rated show in syndication. It gets a a 6.5 and above rating in national households. The woman makes $47 million a year.
Its followed by Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy as the top syndicated shows.

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???

I'd be willing to be bet at least two-thirds of the numbers reported from 7p to 8p come from the first half hour.

"The List" is an awful, awful show. The 30 minute newscast the precedes it likely draws very respectable numbers.


Caroline Beasley is ruining WRIF. What a bitch!!!

I never said move Judge Judy. My goodness!! Just made a comment, that’s all.

The 4pm WXYZ newscast is just awful! That’s my point!!!

They don’t post them for the same reason they don’t post 20’s... not high enough to rate a mention.. only pity...

I think the loss is about half or better... the 7pm draws mid 4’s while the list draws high 2’s...

If that were really the formula then 2's numbers for the entire morning after 7am would be just above hash marks. I doubt that's the case. 4 admits to a second place finish at 10am but, no rating for Fox 2.
I notice they don't mention a first place win at 7-8pm

Its a press release. They're showing what they want to.

Right... when I did the last daily ratings post and had the whole freakin book even I didn’t bother to post 62 except at certain points.. prime time is about the only thing worth talking about with them.. 2 is In first from 6am-noon. That’s why 4 won’t mention them compared to Live In The D... 4 is an also ran at 10am... so yeah it’s all selective and about making 4 look good in the press release but they are doing it both where the competition is largely irrelevant or maybe just doesn’t fit the release? (20 at 10pm and 62 at 7pm) And where they are getting spanked by 2 (10am). 4 Not posting 20’s 10pm numbers to try to embarrass channel 7 has always baffled me... that seems like a no brainer as low as those ratings are on 20.

You notice who doesn’t mention a first place win at 7-8pm? 2 or 4? 4 mentions it every month they put a release out... and they do it across all demos and in HH by a lot...

For whatever it’s worth 2.5-3.5 for The Feud on 62 from 7-8pm so that’s about 3 to 4.5 times as many viewers... I’m guessing 7’s 7pm newscast is probably around 4.5-5.5 depending on the night from what I can tell... that is pretty respectable. 4 is doubling that with Wheel. The List is getting 2.5-3.5... so that’s back at our 3 to 4.5 again...
