Schedule Changes

Good for Smerconish; Bad for the Viewers

At first glance, the following may strike you as good news. It did me. I think the Smerconish program is a good show at a bad time (9am). With it being rebroadcast at 6pm, I think it can do better and attract a larger audience. I was pleased initially because […]

HLN Now: On The Case Won’t Be Axed

With the news of Vinnie Politan leaving HLN , I wondered the fate of his show, HLN Now: On The Case. Many shows have gotten canceled because their hosts move on, and a new show fills the void. I hoped that wouldn’t be the case, and according to an email […]

HLN Programming Changes

Starting Monday, HLN Now: On the Case will air from 2-5pm ET. (Before, it aired from 12-3pm). HLN Now (which aired from 3-5pm) will now air from 12-2pm. In a way, it makes sense. The last two hours (10-12pm) of Morning Express are taped, so a live block of news […]

HLN Now: This Morning 10-12

As I’ve blogged about previously, I think HLN needs to have a live newscast from 10-12 am EST, as opposed to a repeat of Morning Express from the earlier hours.  As HLN showed today, yes, if big news happen, they will preempt the taped news and carry it live.  But […]
