KETV wins 10 o’clock in May

In the May 2007 local TV ratings period, KETV-7 and WOWT-6 were neck and neck with viewers ages 25-54 for their 10 p.m. weekday newscasts. A year later, KETV has taken the No. 1 spot in that advertiser-coveted demographic of adult TV viewers.

In the May 2008 report from Nielsen Media Research, KETV had a 33 percent share of TV viewers for its 10 p.m. newscast, which was up from 26 percent last year. WOWT had a 23 percent share this May at 10 p.m., which was down from 28 percent in May 2007.

Meanwhile, KMTV-3’s 10 p.m. newscast dropped from a 10 percent share of viewers ages 25 to 54 at 10 p.m. in May 2007, to 9 percent this year.

Wow. I dare say WOWT is taking a good hard thumping.

These idiots they interview on the news astound me.

Although to give the news agencies some slack, the intelligent potential interviewees were still at work when this happened.

congrats to ketv & all of its employees. i'm glad viewers are finally to see who to turn to for news (and weather!).

KETV announced tonight's fatalities in Council Bluffs at least 30 minutes before Action 3rd (or 4th) did. Carlo read it from a CB police press release. Way to get that "Breaking News" from an emailed press release. They should change their catch phrase to "We're there when that press release email comes in!!"

Anonymous said...

I live out of town and I was watching KMTV and WOWT's coverage on line. I saw the news of the fatalities on omaha.com first, and it seemed quite awhile before I heard it on WOWT or KMTV. Meteorologist Andrea Rich tried hard, but seemed to just not cut it.

KMTV has a fantastic morning show and that's about it. Carlo and Carol just don't cut it. Travis sucks too.

I still can't stand Nicely. His eyebrows creep me out.

I loved how, two hours after the storm had passed and power was still out, WOWT was telling viewers that if they come to an intersection where the street lights were out to just treat it like a 4 way stop.

I'm here to tell you. Traffic was backed up for at least 10 miles because people were stuck at the 4 way stop paralyzed with fear, not knowing what to do. And suddenly somebody shouted from their front door: "WOWT has found the solution: Treat it as a four way stop!!"

Wild cheers and gasps of gratitude were heard for miles around.

KE's share, is up. But what about total viewers? Maybe the share is up because the other three are losing viewers -- viewers who are just giving up on local news.

Jess said...

10:09---you so funny !

Anonymous said...

Every one I talk to says they dont Watch WOWT any more since they switched to the HOUR bY HOUR Weather Format and because Jim Flowers is never there when you need him. Also they no longer have local doplar Radar, they also seem to use the NOAA radar, the one everyone can see on the web. There weather is soooo out dated now. Yes Weather does plan a role is the ratings. They need to hire better 2nd string weathercasters and buy a new radar.

Jesse said...

The Doppler radar WOWT uses isn't any better than what the NWS utilizes. KETV and others also feed in from Valley. It's a common practice since:

1) It allows the meteorologists to piss us off with many maps of the same data interpreted in different colors to the full extent.

2) They don't have to mess with changing the radar elevation.

3) It's cheaper.

4) What's the point of having two radars?

Yeah, drivers are idiots. I'm not bitching, but I didn't see any traffic control at the larger intersections last night or today.

Anonymous said...

KETV weather people were at 156 and Maple HyVee today on their day off, programming weather radios. They also had a bunch of local meteorologists too. The customer lines were out the door for a long time and everyone was working very hard. That is some dedication to public service and good publicity. I think they have done this 3 or 4 times this year so far.

Jesse said...

3:57

That's great for KETV to be out doing that for the public. You can be cynical and say they are doing it because they have a lot of momentum behind them since being the first on air during the tornado. However, it's more than that.

The public (including me) are finally waking up to how we need to take the weather seriously.

Hopefully these helpful events continue.

Those storms sure did blow...just like the rest of Omaha radio, except for me of course.

I heard 600-some people came to get weather radios at HyVee. And yeah, it works well with their good momentum from Chuck's coverage of the Millard tornado, but I'm pretty sure they had the partnership with HyVee and weather radio days planned before that storm hit.

@ 9:59 PM...KETV and Hy-Vee actually did this last year, too. I remember Bill Randby being at the 79th and Cass Hy-Vee in the Spring, 2007.

Not sure if they did as many appearances last year as they are doing this year, but I can verify that they at least did that one last year.

Did anyone else watch the swimming event last night? They were interviewing Phelps after his world record win and they had the full body shot of him with Andrea Kramer. My screen looked fuzzy near the bottom and I asked my wife if she saw it as well. I looked closer and, sure enough, they were pixilizing the naughty parts (or near them) on him.

I was wondering why Andrea was drolling. Now we now. The fully monty was there for the world to see (pixilized). I wonder if the FCC will hammer NBC for this wardrobe malfuntion.

I looked at a couple Scions this weekend. The assclown salesman calls me today saying he could give me "the best deal" since it's the end of the month.

Problem is that they MSRP those cars $950 above "invoice." That means they can't move on price.

Maybe the great deal was a dropped doc fee.

On another note, I kind of have a thing for the Woodhouse girl.

Yes, those are noticed here, but there's also lots of other topics covered in posts and the blogs, and there are threads about other things than 6. More Tom Park cracks and Perrault riffs are always appreciated.

Jesse-I used to sell cars. The dude is lying about that (shocker I know), they can get you a good deal any damn time they want to, and even if it's REALLY 950 above, then they have more than enough wiggle room still.

Jesse said...

I'll keep that in mind.

On another note, who's telling drivers that flashing yellow lights = 4 way stop?

I was about murdered on 120th and Westwood Ln. coming home from work. The car in the other southbound lane stopped when the light was flashing yellow. I kept on going since, you know, I had the right of way and sure enough the car turning left in the Northbound lane turned in front of me.

They were doing that all day Saturday too.

FYI, I'm pounding almost exclusively on SuxNews because no other station has so loudly proclaimed its own virtues while delivering one of the laziest, most formulaic (not to mention idiotic) newscasts around.

They cockily assumed that they could trot out speech-impeded morons like Jimmy Thiedlecki and empty suits like J-Pa and we'd all just keep tuning in. Their total impotence during the Millard tornado revealed the emptiness of their arrogant boasts.

Now it appears that even the casual viewer is catching on. It's about time.

I agree, Jess--the Woodhouse spokeswoman is the last person they should have hired. Her voice sounds like she should be greeting kids at Disney World, not selling cars. She's gotta be related to the owner--there's no other explanation.

Thanks Ted. I agree with most of your observations. I'd just like to see you bust some onions at the other outlets - Fubar, Affirmative Action News, et al.

I do understand that what's presented at "Sux" is like shooting fish in a barrel. Even commentary about the lameness of Perrault and his TV sidekick would be fun to read. But it's also tough to pass on the cigar store indian and his improv skills.

Who is going to be on KETV's 5A.M. News?

NEwsphile said...

Channel 3 is so far in the gutter now, with so little credibility, that the only way they could even have a CHANCE to climb back into even a distant 3rd place position is to completely revamp not only the news product, but the entire station. This would include a total change of on-air staff, as well as a purging of their call letters and anything that would even remotely remind anyone that KMTV ever existed. Then start from scratch. Promote it as a brand new station in Omaha. Hold a retirement party for KMTV and an announcement of birth for the new call letters. Hell, if they could change their channel number, that would be all the better. In the process, JBG could invest in local HD equipment and they could debut as Omaha's first local HD station. If only.

Anonymous said...

I'd like to see 3 and 42 switch networks. Fox 3 News would be more fitting for the tabloid, in-your-face, yell-at-your-viewers format they use now. And CBS 42 might garner more viewers. After all, Wilson and Co. are so conservative that a more conservative network might be a good lead-in for their local product.

It won't be WOWT, I am certain of that. That would require the slightest bit of ingenuity or risk. They will wait for KETV to do it and once it starts working great for KETV, then, and only then, will WOWT do it themselves. Then, of course, WOWT will promote the hell out of it to the point where they are practically claiming to have invented HDTV.

Anonymous said...

KETV will probably be the first station in Omaha with local programming in HD. Hearst-Argyle is the only company investing any money in Omaha stations. The very reason Channel 6 continues its downward spiral is because the struggling Gray Television isn't about to invest any extra money in its stations, particularly not Market #75 or smaller. WOWT used to have much deeper pockets. Those are days gone by.

They currently are top dog in Omaha, completely dominating every other newscast in the region. They look good doing it. Hearst-Argyle obviously has some money and I doubt they are hesitant to use it on KETV. I have a feeling that around the new year, we will be seeing new studios and HD programing coming from that station. When KETV does go HD, other stations might want to sit back and watch the first broadcast for themselves.

Perrault tries way too hard to try and be a Jim Rome rehash. His interviewing skills are lackluster, he's three of the 10 biggest homers when it comes to Creighton and he seems to think the sports world revolves around the city of Boston, which people in the Midwest couldn't care less about. He's a Red Sox/Patriots parrot in a Royals/Chiefs market, and he doesn't get the fact that nobody gives a rat's hiney about Bahhhhston around here.

He is the reason why 1620 The Zone is a much better place for an all-around discussion of the sports world. Better hosts, better discussions, better interviews -- The Zone is everything Matt Perrault COULD be...if only he were bright enough to leave his personal fandom outside the studio.

More Travis, less Perrault.

Anonymous said...

Then explain why, Da Troof, if that is your real name, why I am number one in this market, why I am the most listened to sports talk show host in this city and why I am a radio god?

I am Omaha radio. Deal with it.

Without me, Creighton basketball wouldn't exist.

Without me, Husker football is an afterthought.

Without me, you would have no Boston talk except for that wannabe at the soon to be Lavista Royals games.

Face it, women love me and men want to be me.

I am hope and change.

I am the voice of Omaha and beyond.

I am...

The Perrault

Axl Rosenberg said...

After yesterday's performance by Travis, there's no reason for Perrault to come back. We have a new king of sports talk radio in Omaha.

Riveting discussions about his diet "how come no one would tell me I'm fat" - and moving vehicle violations of other Affirmative Action News employees. You can't spell Travis without ME.

Looks like Perrault is finished. That was chart-topping stuff.

Note to "the Perrault" -- since we're well aware it's not your REAL name...you are nothing without Omaha. Omaha owns you. Creighton has you in its back pocket. Nebraska keeps you at arm's length for a reason. Omaha tells you what to talk about, and yet you insist on defying those who pay your way through life.

You are nothing but Omaha's BEYOTCH. And on this forum, it is I who you should bow down to. So get on your knees...

Sincerely,

DA TROOF

I heard Scott Voorhees did a repeat of what he did last 4th of July. Is Sean going to whine about it again???"

Jess said...

Well hell what did he do ?

Anonymous said...

Not a big deal, but Sean got a huge boner over it. He posted and whined about it on half a dozen different boards last years. I almost wonder if he has a man-crush on scott:

Da Troof...congratulations on passing the ebonics class. Bill Cosby would be proud.

You are johnny come lately to this party my friend. I have ruled this blog and now these air waves for some time now. The only one that should be on their knees is you praying that I allow you to continue to listen to my silky smooth words and to worship and adore my picture and my blog.

I am a titan, you are a smurf.

I am a diamond, you are glass.

I am the mountain top, you are less than cow dung.

I am...

Good that Carlos is out. Now we have to get wang chung or whatever her name is OUT.

Rome wannabee...er, er...Perrault -- I have been here much longer than you and lurk in the shadows. I know more about you than even you know. I know where you live. I know what you eat. I know what girls you fantasize about while "consuming" the internet porn you subscribe to (and, quite honestly...even you CAN do better).

Your only hope is to not cross my saber, sunshine. You WILL get cut, and you WILL bleed profusely. You shall bow down to me if you want to keep your shaky reputation intact.

You are mine. I own you.

Hey 2:08pm.... Will you join my KKK club? It's tough to find a good racist these days!

I'm gonna need to see this "Perrault v. Troof" bout on video, please ?

Ok now I'm off to read about Sean's boner issue as I sing everybody Wang chung tonight.

Did someone say F Troop?

Time to load up the boner blog with new comments. See 1:38 p.m. for the link.

jess,

don't waste your time on the video. "Matt" knows that I own him in all ways, and he lacks the required skills, talent and cajones to put up any kind of a meaningful fight.

He is my BEEEEEYOTCH. Now and forevermore.

Aht,

Sleeves said...

As I said earlier...

When the mighty horse rocks he rocks the fat ass.

Jess said...

Thank you sleeves, I was wondering if that was still the case.

Sleeves said...

As you said, when you see that phrase that pays, it's time for a new blog.

Had a chance to blast yet on the boner blog? It's fun to see how much progress everyone has made on Perrault-flogging. No one seemed to like him then, either.

Maybe we could all go to Hooters tonight and play some Travia from 7-9 with The Perrault, if we're worthy to be in his presence.

Anonymous said...

None of you are worthy to be in my presence.

Jesus, Buddah and the Dali freaking Lama have to beg to come to my dance parties if you know what I mean.

Sincerely,

The Perrault

P.S. Da Troof is really Da Poop.

Jess said...

Yeah I read it, thought it was pretty damn funny. Did he do that again this year ?

If I were to make it to Hooters it'd just be for the wings. If I happened to see Perrault there, I'd totally ask for his autograph. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha...

My Sharona said...

The answer that will fix all of Perrault's ills is more Travis. Can't get enough Travis. We need to know more about his diet, more about moving violations of co-workers and what his opinions are on issues like pit bull bans, care for the elderly, zoo expansion and is bottled water really safe or not.

Huh, what? Oh, really? Already tried that, was a bigger bomb that was dropped from the Enola Gay? Oh, uh, never mind.

Okay, he and Schtick can go back to more talk about how bad their farts stink.

I am such a god that they have named syndromes after me to wit:

Perrault syndrome: An extraordinary genetic syndrome that is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner and affects both males and females but with a dramatic difference. Affected males and females both have moderate to severe deafness but only affected females have gonadal dysgenesis. They have streak gonads in place of their ovaries and they consequently have primary amenorrhea (never menstruate) and are infertile.

See my power clones!

Sincerley,

yes "the perrault" they do worship you... or is it that you found a chance at free publicity? i see "text your message to...." underneath your stupidity. newsflash- omaha radio stations dont reach new york... close though... but no cigar

Perrault HAS no reach. He HAS no game. He HAS no hope. That's because I HOLD ALL HIS CARDS. He is MY beyotch and I play him like the cheap fiddle that he is.

I am omnipresent you people. My show can be heard by those in New York when I will it to do so. I will be syndicated when I want to be. It is when I will it. I advertise at Yankee stadium to reach the masses, the little people as it were only to entertain myself. I already know they listen to me just like you people do.

First Omaha, next New York, then the world...nay....the universe.

Craven Moorhead said...

Okay, we've established that no one is lamer on the airwaves than The Perrault. We get it, he sucks. Only five minutes or less of listening gets that message across. If Omaha had a Waffle House, they'd be his number one sponsor.

We really need to refocus this discussion to what Travis brings to the table. Without him, this show would be a complete failure. Without him, Channel 3 would fall to the bottom of the ratings with little hoping of overtaking the CW.

Let's celebrate Travis and sing his praises. Come on, we need to be more positive out here, and there's no one more positive in this market than Travis.

How about a game of Travis Travia? Let's see some questions and try to answer them, Jeopardy style. He's a good egg, he might even join us.

Jess said...

Ok so what you're saying is .....you like Travis ?

Ted Brockman said...

Well, at least we now know what name Travis uses when he posts here. Who else would suggest "a game of Travis Travia"?

Anonymous said...

craven - two things you need to understand:

1. KM3 is ALREADY at the bottom of the ratings, in spite of Travis' nightly visits.

2. A BAD day of Travis is INFINITELY better than a good day of Perrault.

Perrault is my whipping boy, and every time he posts he further cements his place as my personal BEYOTCH. But don't worry -- I'll soon grow tired of slapping him around here and will turn him over to each of you to get your licks in, so to speak.

C'MERE, PERRAULT, YA' LITTLE WHITE TRASH NOBODY...TIME FOR ANOTHER BEATIN'...

DA TROOF

ok two things-

omaha dosent have a waffle house??? thats amazing

and

everytime i see "da troof" i think of an old man with no teeth saying that.

Craven Moorhead said...

Travis is seriously good. Professional, forward, to the point. I just can't understand how he aligns himself with someone like Perrault. Must have to because of the whole Journal thing.

Anonymous said...

When Journal cancelled his lame show in the morning, I let him come on to my show in order to let him soak in the glory of my show. I am a benevolent radio god and help those who cannot help themselves when I will it.

I have ground rules:

First the Big Show stars me and only me.

Second, he may not disagree with me. I am always right, just ask me.

Third, under no circumstances will Travia be played while I am behind the alumuminum encrusted mike.

Fourth, if he has anymore children, the next one must be named after me.

Fifth, no scooter talk, no nintendo olympics and no hockey talk are allowed.

Sixth, he shalt not bring up my former girlfriend from Philly.

These are my commandments. So sayeth The Perrault

Anonymous said...

The Perrault had a girlfriend???

Gee...we always thought YOU were Tommy's "girlfriend", Perrault -- not the other way around.

DON'T TALK ABOUT HER!...boy she was hot..YOU PEOPLE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK ABOUT IT...how the heck did I let her go...DON'T SPEAK OF IT!...boy I was dumb when we got into that fight about women in sports broadcasting on TnT...YOU PEOPLE SHOULD NOT SAY ANOTHER WORD!

Frankly, Perrault -- we aren't interested in your delusional fantasies while watching your vast array of Asian porn.

And don't deny your passion for man love. We have the pictures to prove it...
