Local Morning Shows Beating Network Shows in Largest Markets

AM shows_570

The morning show battles aren’t just between ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today Show anymore. TVNewsCheck reports a smaller, leaner, local opponent has entered the arena.

In March, on FOX owned station WNYW “Good Day New York” beat GMA with a 1.425 rating among 25-54 year-olds compared to GMA’s 1.421. Chicago CW affiliate WGN and Los Angeles CW affiliate KTLA also beat both GMA and Today in mornings by a larger margin.

Circling above New York on a frigid morning two weeks ago, WNYW’s helicopter spotted a lone surfer along the coast of Long Island and fed the images to the Fox O&O’s Good Day New York. As the surfer struggled to catch a wave, co-hosts Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto provided rather snarky commentary.

The next day, they featured the surfer, Doug Bard, on the four-hour morning show to learn about cold-weather surfing. They received a bar of Sex Wax (look it up) from him and Bard got a chance to do the weather in front of the green screen.

“In all these cases, the shows are anchored by extremely likeable, fun, accessible talent that isn’t afraid to make fun of themselves,” TV Guide Los Angeles Bureau Chief Michael Schneider told TVNewsCheck. “The anchors on these local shows just feel more real.” Read more

WNYW Anchors Settle Differences on ‘People’s Court’

Like an odd version of “This is Your Life,” Greg Kelly and his “Good Day New York” co-anchor Rosanna Scotto appeared on a special WNYW version of “The People’s Court.”

Scotto sued Kelly for pain and suffering. Kelly counter sued for $11 billion trillion.

As part of the evidence against her co-anchor, Scotto showed Judge Marilyn Milian a greatest hits clip of Kelly throwing a hula hoop at Scotto’s head, dumping water on her during a segment and getting sandwiched on top of her during a women’s football demo. Kelly wore an arm sling in hopes of winning sympathy from the audience he kept calling a jury.

Kelly lost. According to the story, he now has to peel potatoes. But after he was repeatedly called unathletic and clumsy he may have already served his sentence.

The allegations are back in the news after the now adult Dylan recently wrote an open letter again accusing Allen of molesting her when she was a child.

On the FOX owned station’s “Good Day New York” Scotto revisited a 1990′s interview with Mia Farrow refuting Allen’s longtime claims that Dylan had been coached to say what she said about him.

This morning on “Good Day,” Allen, through his lawyers, again maintained that Dylan had been coached by Farrow to say what she said.

‘Good Day New York’ Interview Cut Short After Jenna Jameson Slurs Words


A bizarre WNYW segment with Jenna Jameson is making the rounds online after the former adult film star slurred her words during an interview with Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto (video above). After the interview was cut short due to Jameson’s strange behavior, she needed help getting off the set, the New York Post‘s Page Six reports.

“We thought it was her heels, until she started talking,” a WNYW source told Page Six. “After the interview, she went and laid down on the couch in the green room.”

Jameson’s spokesperson said “she had no sleep after a long flight and she was very tired.”

Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto Debut ‘Good Day New York’ Music Videos

Because no morning show is complete without a theme song, “Good Day New York” anchors Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly each recently recorded a song. This morning, the pair debuted their music videos: Scotto shows off her dance moves with a takeoff on “Blurred Lines” and Kelly — or should we say G-Rock –  shows off his rap skills (and his love for White Castle) with a trip through New York City. Trust us: you have to see it to believe it (video above).

The competition for who had the best video is underway on WNYW‘s Facebook page. As of this post, Kelly had a slight 51% to 49% lead.
