Oh My.

OMFG!

I was laughing until I saw it was on actual, real broadcast television.

Like, someone produced it, got it approved, and put on the logs.

And now I'm crying on the inside... just a tear.

Is their an emoticon that represent a bowing and shaking head?

I'm saddened that they blew a decent concept with terrible execution. You can't tell me it would have been all that difficult (or even that expensive) to shoot a handful of talent--or even ONE talent--speaking the lines in the woods. It might not have won an award, but it would have been a lot more effective than asking the audience to stare at "trees 'n text" for 15 seconds.

What market is this? Presque Isle, Maine?

The words went by too fast and the music was a bad choice. That station is in Evansville, IN.

I once worked in Evansville, Indiana...this station is a distant second to 14WFIE in ratings and just overall news quality. I am with Paul, how did this get approved? I have been back to the market and News25 has really gone downhill, nobody watches them anymore. Nobody wants to work there, they all would rather work at 14WFIE. Jeff Lyons at 14WFIE is the best weather guy I have ever known, as for his competition, well, check out the promos that he did in Louisville

That spot ruled. You guys don't know what you're talking about.

As for me, I'm thankful that this all-seeing tv station asks the questions others don't even think to ask.

The smartest people I know work in tv. Of course, everyone else I know works in car sales.

Anyway...
