Big deal! Who is going to stay up that late to watch the shows we missed? And when you click on their link to watch them online, all you get is Katie Couric and the evening news! All that fuss for some jerk on the thruway! I hope they keep his sorry butt in jail! I hate when they pre-empt the shows!

Video section is difficult to read. Dark gray font on black? What are you NOT thinking?
Can't find "as seen on Tv"; so I guess I won't see the rebroadcast of the two CBS shows?
I appreciate that yoour coverage of the standoff; had the most video. At times a good 85% of the screen was left free for the video as opposed to channel 7 and channel 2 which only gave me 2/3 of the screen for the video; what were they NOT Thinking?

this area is so media crazy! since when is some doofus with a gun threatening to shoot himself considered "BREAKING NEWS" who cares! and actually shame on the news channels for broadcasting somebody's worst time of their life.
ch4 is the worst with the interruption of shows.... the alerts, warnings, it's actually quite a deterrant to me. they always do a banner alert 10 mins before the noon news when a little weather system is coming in... it's like, why bother, the news is going to be on in 10 minutes just have your big pow wow during the scheduled broadcast

So if violent storms or tornadoes are entering our region at 10 minutes to noon and they're moving at 50 mph, Channel 4 should wait 10 minutes so a dope like you doesn't have to watch a crawl during "The Price Is Right?" Yeah, that's reasonable.

yeah because tornados come through this area all so often! this is buffalo you nimrod, if you're not prepared for the weather, you don't belong here! just park your drama lovin butt in front of ch4 and you'll be sure to get your fill.
it's not just the weather alerts that are ridiculous.... the "BREAKING NEWS" for fires, accidents...when does that justify being breaking news? i thought breaking news was something that has an effect on the whole region?

lol ALERT! ALERT!.... 2" SNOW COMING TO BUFFALO, BETTER MAKE IT A SNOW STORM ADVISORY.... WHAT A JOKE THE MEDIA HAS BECOME IN THIS AREA, and saps like you that love the drama

Yeah, so couch potatoes like you don't miss your shows. How about getting off your *ss, and go do something, instead of watching t.v. all day long, you lazy bum!

I didn't miss any shows because I don't watch much TV but I thought it was ridiculous that all 3 news stations had to glorify this wacko. He wasn't the president or anyone important for that matter. It was LIVE TV. What would've happened if he blew his brains out and children were watching?
The news can be as bad as paparazzi.
It was sensationalism at its best.

Yes, I've heard of dvr, and I'm no drama queen. I didn't even know anything about this whole stupid thing on the 190, til it was almost over. I was umping a little league softball game. I don't feel the need to live for some stupid sit-com. I have things to do, dumb-***!

the need to live for a sitcom? again, stuff the hole, wench ! i was working at the time of the whole drama situation too! who cares! unlike some people out there, some of us still use tv as a way to watch entertainment and not just for ch4's pathetic drama they call "news". i guess that being glad i was able to dvr the late broadcast of the shows, due to the pathetic hype of one man's darkest hour, makes me out to be a lazy couch potato on my a** and also a dumba**

yes you are a drama queen. otherwise, you would'nt have attacked my post that was just stating a fact about how the media of this area overdoes the drama. you were making your own drama in hopes of a response. hence "DRAMA QUEEN"
with that, i've made my point and bid you farewell

Sorry, it's been a couple of weeks since I had time to check for posts. I've been working, something you might want to try. I was not trying to make drama, I was stating my opinion. The only point you made is probably a pimple on your boring a**.

I notice wivb tries their darndest to bring news but they seem to fail every time so they get desperate & make thier own news some times its so boring its pathetic even the least little thing turns to be BREAKING NEWS What a shame they turned out to be but with very little population there isnt much going on around here
