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.

Perrault: Good night Skipper!

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


I think it's already on TV... you know-- that Alltel ad where the two nerds are slapping at each other then the one pulls out the "chucks" and makes the other one scream.

So does anyone know (or care) why WOWT promotes itself as "6 News" sometimes, and "Channel 6 News" other times? I think they should call their newscast "The News on 6" like Tulsa Station KOTV does. That way, they can call their Cox Channel 1 "News on 6 on 1." Otherwise, make up your minds. 6 news or channel 6 news.

Kristi Andersen co-anchoring First News for two days in a row. Wow. She's doing awesome. It would be a toss up between her and Marla Rabe.

8:34 -- And just to clarify, it is I who is wielding the chucks and Perrault who is running and screaming like a little school girl.

It is that way in everything, because he is my sniveling little BEYOTCH.

Sincerely,

DA TROOF

Jess said...

Thank you for clarifying that Troof. I've seen it, I just thought yours would have more blood or something ?


4:56 she is doing really good !

I would do her really good.

Jess said...

Hmph !

I don't remember what topic we were on --weather maybe ? Anyway someone was saying that WOWT wouldn't publish their comments. Three times I have tried to leave comments on there the past week and not one has been published. I wonder if it's because I researched and confirmed some things that went against what the people who had commented 14 times said ?

I even left my email address so they could contact me.

Bastards.

Does anybody know where 10/11's Jon Vanderford is? His bio is on the website but they have Jason Vollentine anchoring and in the anchor introductions.

Lincoln's CBS affiliate blows. I remember watching it in college and it looked like it was a college station. Even worse than KXVO's news.

8:21 PM - Mel Mains just rolled over in is grave over that comment.

10/11 STRONG!!!!!!!!

Anyone else watch the KETV morning news today (Saturday)?

What did y'all think of Adrian Whitsett's anchoring job? KETV's new male anchor stud? The next John Knicely?

And what was up with Andrea Bredow? Did someone "ring her bell" last night? No, I'm not complaining -- actually, it was quite nice -- it's just that she seemed extra perky

Anonymous said...

Good thing they had Andrea on this morning. Between the anchors and the field reporter, I don't think there was a COMBINED 10 years professional experience there and I'm not sure any of those three would not have been carded at most bars.

Somebody at KETV must have some pull with the UNL journalism department -- haven't seen that many interns live on the air in a looooooooong time. Shouldn't they be in a dimly-lit office somewhere filing old Carol Schrader tapes???

I turned on channel 7 today and thought it was BET.

I thought it was that kids news show they run on WOWT after their sham of a weekend morning newscast.

Jeff Stryker said...

Holy Crap, analysis of 10/11 Wrong? What happened to their JV anchors? Might be finding a new level of granite to cut through. Time for a new topic. How about more positive comments about Travis, he rules!

The Snaggle tooth Perrault could eat a carrot through a barbwire fence without imjury.

I agree with 7:27 AM. There were so many mis-steps on 7 this a.m. -I thought I might be watching channel 6! Nice try and better luck tomorrow kids. It was a KETV, the new generation...just wait.

Male announcer: The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in a red zone.
Female announcer: The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in a red zone.
Male announcer: The red zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in a white zone.
Female announcer: No, the white zone is for loading. Now, there is no stopping in a RED zone.
Male announcer: The red zone has always been for loading.
Female announcer: Don't you tell me which zone is for loading, and which zone is for unloading.
Male announcer: Look Betty, don't start up with your white zone shit again. There's just no stopping in a white zone.
Female announcer: Oh really, Vernon? Why pretend, we both know perfectly well what this is about. You want me to have an abortion.
Male announcer: It's really the only sensible thing to do, if its done safely. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

Jess, the WOWT message board is a joke to begin with. It doesn't surprise me they are censoring your comments.

I thought the KETV morning news crew did better than the 10 pm news crew. At 10 pm they stuck Todd Andrews between Matt Schick and Farah "cowbell" Fazal. No cowbell ringing at the end of the sportscast last night. It just seemed awkward between Andrews and Fazal. Like when he told Fazal she was "fab" and she looked at him as if he called her "fat".

Anonymous said...

Somebody needs to tell Todd Andrews he's a white schmuck and not a black playah. He is the most fake person in all of Omaha news media, and his trying to be hip all the time is nauseatingly pathetic.

Media watchers will want to catch KETV's 10pm news tonight (Sunday) . . .

lol, thanks KETV intern! Does this count toward your college credit?
Stick around, you can anchor the weekend morning show next week!

Brandi is taking over the 5, 6 and 10 weeknights and Julie is doing off-air/on-line work for KETV.

Interesting, but you knew something like this would be on the way...

Anonymous said...

Nice heads up, 5:03 PM!

I love how they paraded everyone out, to show there's no catfighting at all and everyone loves one another despite Julie getting pushed out...blah blah blah.
Congrats to Brandi though, she's definitely worth what they're paying her.

Anonymous said...

7:27 -- is John Knicely aware that a second-rate flunky intern is playing on his computer while he's home watching Sportscenter?

Get back to pushin' that broom, flunky...

Anonymous said...

Julie is not being forced out. She wanted to go, if anything they were pushing her to stay.

Anonymous said...

So it sounded like Julie will finish out the month, then Brandi will start anchoring full time in August?

@4:30 AM - if you're talking about this blog...it's still early, since the info didn't break until later in the 10 PM news.

If you're talking about the KETV web site, they have something up --> http://www.ketv.com/news/16859406/detail.html.

Jesse said...

Watch KETV botch Julie's replacement and give Farah the lead anchor position.
