Except that with Chicago and its metropolitan area--a population of over 8 or 9 million--losing so many people every year (state economy/taxes and weather being the two biggest reasons), the nation sees so many former Chicago area residents now living in other parts of the country. These people, myself included, will always hold an interest in the local Chicago sports teams, the funny politics, etc., and WGN News at Nine was a great way to follow that.

 

Agreed.  Just got back from southwest florida, for example, where there's tons of Chicago snowbirds there in the winter season. It was nice to check in at 10 pm ET and see what's going on in Chicago (and too see how bad the weather is :) )

 

Skilling has got to be the best weather man in the country.  Living in Cleveland now, I'd watch the 9 pm news for his much more in depth forecasts and regional trends.

 

I find it hard to beleive yet another rerun of How I Met Your Mother has better ratings?

 

Count me very disappointed that the 9pm news is gone.

It's either that or 10 to 15-year-old reruns of America's Funniest Home Videos.


FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Except that it has to be live. Kind of defeats the purpose of using a DVR to record then watch later the WGN News at 9.

I will never get my parents to switch to Directv for two reasons: no GSN HD and no CW in their market (at all). My mom watches a few shows on WPIX with Dish's superstations package. Directv won't let others get CWe (channel 394) either. I think there is a crappy cable CW that has the rights to it or something. 

 

I, too, mostly watch WGN America for the news and sports. I have watched 30 Rock on there a couple times, too.
