It’s Maddening!

At 6:15 on the WSMV News at 6:00, Dan and Demtria throw it to Jennifer Johnson and Tom Randles with a “So tell us what’s coming up on the News at 6:30.”

Oh yes, please give us a glimpse into the distant future 15 minutes from now.

Then at 6:30 Jennifer and Tom proceed to rehash the top headlines from the days of yore thirty freakin’ minutes ago! Worst of all, they make us wait until five minutes before the hour and two separate sets of headlines and weather forecasts before us sports fans can get our short Titans fix.

Here’s a hint, it was hot yesterday. It’ll be hot tomorrow. You can take up a half hour for the weather when it changes. Or the quarterly tornado threatens Rivergate Mall.

I’ll admit Tom and Jennifer are attractive and competent, but their talents (and my time) are being wasted.

I’d like to buy a vowel, Pat. Can I have a “K?”

    If you think you have it rough, try being a Predators fan. Or someone waiting for honest, common sense political coverage.

    TiVo the 5 to 5:30 news, watch at your leisure, problem solved.

    And then I could watch the NewsHour w/Jim Lehrer at 6:00. That makes a lot of sense. I believe my viewing habits are in for a change. Thanks for the new format, Channel 4.

    I’m outta here!

    I see WSMV musta made Jennifer an offer she couldn’t refuse. Wasn’t she like a State spokesperson or something?

    I think Tom Randles is h-a-w-t.

    Ditto on everything Sista just said…
