THV This Morning is Holding On....For Now...

Channel 11 gained back the morning viewers even after losing morning anchor Alyson Courtney to KATV. May 2011 ratings numbers show KTHV had a 4 rating in the 5am hour and a 6 rating in the 6am hour. KTHV News Director Charles Mauldin commented to Arkansas Business.com about the win:

Chuck Maulden, news director at KTHV, seemed pleased with what his station was able to accomplish in the morning. "We made some gains from a year ago," he said. "It was good for us to win back the morning. That's a big battleground now and always has been." KTHV's morning win may seem especially sweet as it comes after losing morning show anchor Alyson Courtney to KATV.

The real test will come in August when the newly hired beauty queen comes full time to the KTHV morning show. This will determine if people migrate away from Channel 11 mornings...

and.. as of late it seems KATV has been tinkering with its morning staffing. There really hasn't been any consistency in the last month or so to who is hosting the program. Something tells me they are gonna build the program around Alyson Courtney....and could this mean Beth Hunt is forever working the daytime anchor shift? Beth is better anchoring news than a fluffy ol' morning show!

Everyone makes reference to Alyse Eady as a beauty queen. Robyn Richardson was also a "beauty queen" and I'm pretty sure she was a hit with the viewers. Alyse is a very classy lady- I hope she does well.

I think Alyse has already started pulling in the viewers. THV has her face on their promotional material all over central Arkansas. One would think that some viewers would change with the departure of Alyson.

And what is up with KARK's flat ratings? They have a great team. Could it be NBC's crappy programs?

Tom has a very loyal viewer base. It's true, Arkansas loves Alyse and Ashley has proven to be a ratings puller. The ratings may be closer than in the past, but if viewers were going to navigate away they would have already done that with the changes. Kudos to Tom and ashley for a job well done.

I don't understand it either. They really put on a great product. It's kinda sad really. I kinda root for them! And before anyone says any thing.. no I don't work for them. I just watch them.

7:26 and 9:50 The problem is not NBC's programming. The problem is people just don't like KARK's moning show. The Today Show has been the #1 morning show for 10 or 15 years.

I can't count the number of people I know who will switch over to KARK at 7:00 every morning to watch The Today Show. And it's not just here in Little Rock. I was down in Shreveport over the
July 4th holiday, and almost everyone down there does the exact same thing.

Both KARK and KTAL down in Shreveport are owned by the same company. Nexstar Broadcasting in Irving Texas. In every market Nexstar has a station they come in last in ratings. No matter if it is an NBC, ABC, or CBS affiliate.

KATV is having to bribe and retain younger viewers with gas cards but won't put the money into HD newscasts. The seniors and tradition can only go so far.

Oh yea and just glad Melissa is gone!

In many places, the Nexstar ownership is an albatross but here in Little Rock its not a big deal since the competition is so weak during mornings. 16 is a no-show on mornings, so that leaves 4, 7, 11 (with 42 running a 4 branded show at 7AM).

My biggest gripe right now with KARK (and KTHV) is that their folks that edit their Facebook page often post silly, trollish stories on their and that gets the rubes all worked up.

Everybody on here is always talking about how "if THV can keep Tom Brannon." Precisely just where is it that you think Tom would go? Who would have him? He's annoying and childish and has to have other people around him who can "handle" him on the air and keep reins on him. To me, he is the weak link on THV mornings, not the glue that holds the show together, as some say.

Yeah, for KARK to have not named a replacement by now either means: (A) They're doing some heavy courting with a competitor. (B) The applicants they've receive stink. (C) They are enjoying saving $$$ by making Brett and Greg work extra shifts. (D) There is no rhyme or reason to why they haven't named one.

Sad thing is, those are all very viable options.

I, too, have been pleasantly surprised with Ashley & think the new team will do well. Glad they got new furniture in the shack. Paint the unfinished trim & improve their lighting & it's all good.

I usually start with KTHV & then flip back and forth to KARK. NEVER do I watch KATV. Their AM show is stale. The banter is WAY too forced & fake. When they are at a loss for words, which is often, you hear a lot of "yahhhh....rigggght ....uh-huhhhhh..." coupled with a lot of head nodding. I will pass.

Channel 7 has a lot of technical errors but I still believe they have the best on air people in the market...top to bottom. I can't stand the inexperienced reporters at 11. I was surprised 11 won the morning (although I think all three morning shows are comparable in quality), and I was shocked 7 won the ten considering ABC's poor leadins and CBS's strong leadins. I work in media but not TV.

Helping Improve the KTHV "Weather Garden Set" hint # 4:

Install a fan to keep the bugs blown away from the set due to recently installed lights. Very distracting to see bugs flying thru the camera shot. A fix is to install a translucent skylight in the ceiling of the set. This will allow natural light into the dark places of the set and thus the need for artificial light will be eliminated. Thus, no more bugs and no need to call Orkin.

New furniture looks better than the set.

Well, there's a BIG difference in being a news anchor and a Miss Arkansas. Robyn was very successful as an anchor, probably the most popular morning co-host in Arkansas history! Alyse does a ton of talent, but to say she will be a successfull anchor remains to be seen. Being Miss Arkansas only proves she was more talented than the other contestants that she beat. Being a news anchor is a different story. Best of luck to Alyse, she is very talented and quite beautiful, hope it works out for her.

You are yammering on about pageants and qualifications and it's ridiculous. Do you have any idea how many television personalities got their start in pageants? Do you understand that television is a visual medium, and that as a general rule, the more attractive you are, the better jobs you get? People need to face the fact that Alyse got the job. It doesn't matter "what other applicants there were." It never HAS mattered. It's what the management thinks will work. I hope for your sake you DON'T work in the business and are just a lurker, because you really have no bleeping clue.

Actually, a talented lady by the name of Betty Fowler was without a doubt the most popular early morning and Noon show hostess on Arkansas TV. Ever hear of her.

Have you ever heard of KRTV (that's right KRTV) Channel 17? It was Arkansas' first TV station. You need pull your head out and educate yourself before you go blowing off about Arkansas TV history which apparently you know nothing about.

To further educate yourself, you should use Google or Wikipedia.

I think Alyse will do a fine job, but her most vocal supporters on here sound like classless buffoons. TV is extremely subjective and just because people disagree with you does not mean they are morons or are unworthy of your respect. I'm sure the people or person making all of the condescending comments works at THV (perhaps in management), and while it is admirable to defend your future co-worker...you don't need to be so nasty about it.

She's not all that impressive if you ask me.

In fact, she seems downright idiotic. After seeing her "introduction" video of her holding her hand behind Brannon's head and doing the "horns" thing, I would rather see a goat in a tuxedo do the show than her goofy ass.

Frankly, she has brought the class of the morning show down. Get rid of her and bring back the girl with 4 names that had 12 kids a few months back. At least she has a personality!

I'm sorry, but I just don't get why "Arkansas loves her".

I don't. I've stopped watching THV's morning show since. I want to see news reporting, not 20 minutes of Brannon interviewing people with boxes of cereal.

Y A W N....

For once, Channel 4 has gotten their shit together. The set looks great and the morning team is better now that they moved Seamouse to evenings. They do loads more news than any other the other stations, which is what I want.

I could care less about cereal drives, leave that crap to Dave Elswick at KARN. He would do a better job at it anyway.

Brannon is bored, and it shows.

I like the cat, though...

ALyson Courtney was one of my favorite news anchors on Channel 11 and I was too sad when she left, but I'm glad that the channel got some viewers back
