I give up you win Fox. Tribune will buy Fox Televison Stations' Fox 26 and My20 in Houston and Fox 7 in Austin exchange for Tribune's KCPQ and KZJO Part of swap agreements. Trubune Put Channel 39 For Sale. Make KCPQ, KZJO and Seahwks NFC Rights. You Win FOX!

I heard Fox is looking to get rid of WPWR My50 in Chicago (but not WFLD Fox 32), possibly swapping to Tribune for KCPQ/KZJO.

To me, I would prefer that FOX could attempt to purchase KCPQ and KZJO in Seattle and also WHPL in Philadelphia from Tribune for FOX to form a duopoly between WFTX and WPHL in Philadelphia without being forced to sell off or trade and swap a station to Tribune for KCPQ and KZJO. FOX stations in Tampa and Orlando would be more prime to go to Tribune due to weak performing NFL teams in Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville.

What does an NFL team's performance have to do with whether or not Fox wanting to own a station there? And Fox doesn't own a station in Miami or in Jacksonville.

As noted yesterday, if WTVT/Tampa was available, it would have gone to Cox. You are clearly clueless JC!

T Dog, if FOX owns a station in a market with a good performing NFC team (NFC games are on FOX, AFC are on CBS), then they will air a majority of the home market's team games and therefore make a lot of money from that. WFLD is a pretty lousy station in terms of local news ratings, but they are pretty valuable in the sense that they air a majority of the Bears games.

JC, No way in Hell would FOX ever get rid of their Stations in Orlando and Tampa! Not after all the hoops they had to go through with the FCC to purchase them from New World (Tampa) and Meredith (Orlando) in the first place! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the NFC (which FOX covers) and will have a much better season this year.

T Dog, the reason that the FOX stations in Jacksonville and Miami are affiliates IS that both the Jacksonville Jacquars and the Miami Dolphins are in the AFC (which CBS covers). FOX has no interest in owning stations in markets where the NFL team is in the American Conference!!!

    Easily fall’s best broadcast network comedy pilot, NBC’s The Good Place offers a clever high-concept premise that’s complemented with intelligent, sometimes absurdist humor. Created by Michael Schur, co-creator of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, The Good Place is a highly serialized series that’s essentially set in heaven and stars Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. NBC made five episodes of The Good Place available for review, and the show not only holds up, but also it improves, deepening characters that initially feel one-note and frequently leaving viewers guessing with cliffhanger endings to many of the episodes. The combination of snappy dialogue and winning but flawed characters makes The Good Place a great bet for fans of smart TV comedy.

    Pitch has swagger, for good reason. It gets the big things right; the Fox drama about the first female baseball player in the Major Leagues is one of the year’s most assured and exciting debuts. But part of what impresses about the pilot is also the way it confidently strings together so many small but telling details. Ginny (Kylie Bunbury) is the first woman to be called up from the minors to the big leagues, and no show since Friday Night Lights has done a better job of portraying the internal and external pressures that weigh heavily on young athletes asked to do much more than merely succeed on the field. Pitch will likely do a good job of getting viewers to root for it. The hope is that the show won’t be an impressive, short-lived curiosity, but rather a long-term phenomenon.

    In a fall TV season that’s already making a splash for championing diverse, distinctive voices in an array of projects that they created, wrote, and starred in, Better Things on FX stands out. The show is created by, written by, and starsPamela Adlon. She plays Sam Fox, the single mother of three daughters modeled after her own reality-show-ready experience raising three girls in Los Angeles following a divorce. Sam is also, like Adlon, a working actress — on shows both raunchy, a la Californication, and animated for children, like her role on Recess. It’s a refreshingly blunt take on single motherhood without sacrificing the warmth of parental love, portraying the dance between selfishness and selflessness that’s at the heart of being a parent — especially one weathering the hormonal fireworks of a household of four women at different ages.

    The fall TV season doesn’t count as much as it used to — we already know that. But no matter how many retreads the broadcast networks throw at viewers in the next few months, this fall will be memorable because of the premiere of Atlanta on Tuesday, Sept. 6, on FX. The half-hour comedy created by and starring Donald Glover (Community), simply and brilliantly recalibrates our expectations of what a TV comedy is and how black lives are portrayed on the medium.

    The second reboot of the 1980s John Candy movie Uncle Buck, bumped by ABC from midseason, has the same tired jokes you'll find on any second-rate sitcom. Too bad, because Mike Epps is appealing and ABC would be wise to keep him around for future shows, but there’s just not enough to this show to suggest it will last past summer. It also airs against NBC’s America’s Got Talent, summer’s No. 1 program on broadcast, which may make it even harder to find an audience.

    Bryan Cranston brings his Tony Award-winning interpretation of President Lyndon B. Johnson to television in an adaptation of the Robert Schenkkan play All the Way, and it’s still quite a sight to behold, just as it was on Broadway in 2014. Nothing beats witnessing this kind of larger-than-life portrayal onstage, of course. But the television version, presented by HBO, offers plenty of rewards, allowing Cranston to work the close-ups and liberating him from the confines of a theater set. Cranston’s performance is a gem — in his hands, this accidental president comes across as an amazing bundle of contradictions, someone who seems at once too vulgar for the job and just right for it.
