November ratings

Just got the rundown on the latest ratings numbers from the November book. Traditionally, the book comes out right before Christmas, providing a big lump of coal to somebody, but it was late this year.

Anyway, the big news is KOAA's big numbers. Despite having new competition from KRDO at 5 p.m. and at 6 p.m., KOAA was up in both timeslots. You can't expect KRDO to capture a huge audience right off the bat with its new format, but the RDO'ers have to be disappointed with their first sally.

KOAA was up at 10 p.m., too, while the other guys were roughly steady as she goes.

KXRM seems to have gotten some pop from its new, independent news. They were up from 9-9:30. The program tailed off sharply in the second half-hour, but it's a good sign for the future.

One other thing I found really interesting - KOAA finished second in primetime overall, compared to NBC's national fourth-place finish. That Sunday night Broncos game drew huge numbers, of course, but apparently the Springs is a hotbed for "Heroes" fans and "Deal or No Deal," too.

I would love to be a fly on the wall over at KRDO and KKTV. I wonder what excuses are being made and passed around as the word.

Be easy on KRDO-TV

NPG plays to win, but Patti Hoth really dragged the station down. Repairing the damage that Harry's little girl did is going to take a long time ratings wise.

They have ways to go if they want to beat KOAA time and again.

It may take some time to beat KOAA, but from the looks of it, won't be very long before they take KKTV. I give em two more ratings books before KRDO takes 2nd. Who would've thought that a year ago???
Guess those anchor changes weren't so good after all?

I'm not surprised. Nobody likes the new anchors. They are awful. KKTV made a dumb move. Hopefully someone who counts is finally noticing.

I agree about KRDO moving into the #2 spot, I think though it may be about a year from now, they have the foundation, and they are now building up, will take some time. I really can not wait until the Feb book. 1 year with the new Anchores, and no product. Hot reporters, but that is not everything.

KRDO could very well beat KKTV, but Don and Shannon were great replacements for Eric and Mellsia.

I also like Bledson more so than Mike Manson but hey I am happy he found some work at KOAA.

One thing KOAA has is the talent and the longest of the bunch currently on is Lisa Lyden unless Lee Dougless signed on before her. I think Mike D came on around 1984, and Rob Q signed on in the early 1990's.

If anything the local news race might tighten up at least with KKTV and KRDO, and its about time.

Sorry mccullen, Don and Shannon are horrible. One's a total dork, and the other is way past her prime. Sorry to be so negative, but sheez, I can't be the only one that thinks that. Obviously other viewers think so too.

I'll never quit KOAA - so long as they have Rob, Lisa & Mike. That is one smart team. (I still grieve for Harv). They just seem to fit so well together - maybe that kind of cohesiveness comes from being together for so long, or maybe they are each really good at what they do - whatever it is, I love it. I wouldn't dream of watching another evening team.


I'd love to see Craig Elliot take over Evan Michael's morning spot - (I can't help but think Evan MUST BE somebody's relative - he has no broadcast skills whatsoever) but Georganne is so sweet that she makes up for Evan. If we could get Georganne a "wardrobe intervention" that would be perfection.

Despite Evan and that heinous blue sweater-vest that G.L. is so fond of, KOAA is still way better than the other morning choices.

There's my 1.02
:)

And their are so many cowards that Andy allows on his blog.

If this crap ever become consistant on my blog. It would force people to give some kind of I.D. instead of one anonymous post after other.

Who knows maybe you work with Don and Shannon and they wish you would just get fired. Or maybe your just everybody else who loves KOAA.

Guess we will never REALLY know.

A person should lose their job because they did it poorly and NOT because they are past their "prime."

Speaking of a "fashion intervention"! I can't believe what she was wearing tonight filling in on the 5pm news. Baby Blue!? Looked like someone's Nanny was delivering the news.
