Milford teen on "Made" Monday

That MTV "Made" episode which began shooting last May at Milford High School will air 10 p.m. Monday. The crew follows the exploits of Katrina Knuckles, now a Milford junior, as she works out in hopes of making the varsity soccer team. MTV describes her as "a spoiled slacker with a passion for pink (clothes),” before efforts “to turn this whiner into a winner." MTV enlists the help of Matt Beines, the Finneytown High School soccer coach and a member of the Cincinnati Excite men's professional soccer team ( and a personal trainer to help her out.

Bengals TV
Wonder how many elderly viewers will be confused from that graphic Ken Broo put up the other night on Channel 5, saying Sunday’s Bengals game was "1 p.m., PBS." Of course, he meant Paul Brown Stadium, not public TV...
But several viewers called last week to ask why CBS/Ch. 12 didn’t have the Bengals-Carolina game last week. It was on Fox/Ch. 19. And the Bengals will be on Fox/Ch. 19 again Sunday. As most of you know, network coverage of a NFL game is determined by the visiting team, because the away city will always get its team’s telecast. With Atlanta and Carolina in the NFC, the games are on Fox.

DIY looking for area homeowners
Producers for "DIY to the Rescue," the DIY network home improvement series, wants to shoot four half-hour shows in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentuckythe last week in March. They’re looking for four homeowners – two sets of neighbors – to shoot shows about home improvement nightmares, says Brandii Toby, DIY publicist.
Applications are available at
Families will be interviewed in early December, she says.
"DIY to the Rescue," with builder Karl Champley and carpenter Amy Devers, is one of the most popular shows on DIY. It airs 8 and 8:30 p.m. seven days a week.

Ohio Football Pairings on ONN
The Ohio high school football tournament pairings will be announced noon-1 p.m. Sunday by the Ohio High School Athletic Association on the Ohio News Network. ONN also will telecast the state championship games for all six divisions Dec. 1-2.

So people watch PBS, then switch over to 5?

I guess reading and writing aren't a requirement to work for CPO anymore. Do they just use pictures on the prompter these days?

For the past 10 to 12 years, WCPO has regularly pre-empted network programming to show syndicated programming instead. It happened when it was still the CBS affiliate and the station still does it now as part of ABC. Inevitably, the original program was something I wanted to watch. This isn't an occasional occurrence; it happens about once every two weeks.
Since I have Time Warner cable, I don't get Dayton stations on my main TV. And my little battery operated black-and-white TV which I keep for emergencies doesn't have a powerful enough antenna to pick up Dayton.
It happened again last night. ABC showed the third Harry Potter movie, which I've never seen. WCPO pre-empted it for The Best of Times, which I had sat through in the theater and thought was the lamest football/male menopause movie ever made.
No, WCPO, I did not watch your replacement programming. In fact, I have NEVER watched your replacement programming. I've watched your competition, cable or a movie on VHS or DVD, or nothing at all.
Complaining to the station has been useless. I'm going to start mentioning it here publicly. I just hope that the 10 or so viewers who have watched your syndicated programming make up for the hundreds and hundreds of folks who missed their show.

Not only that, WCPO/Scripps Howard owned at least one of the programs, which has been running ad nausem on Food Network.

Yes, WCPO, we know you are part of the Scripps Howard company but jeesh! Give it a break! I bet ABC loves their affiliates from preempting their programming. Isn't that the main reason none of the over-the-air stations aren't airing Cincinnati Reds games, because the networks dislike their affiliates preempting THEIR programming?

BTW, did you see the new weather promo on WCPO? What an ego!

hey news5 started taping promos about how derek is the new chief and how he is the most qualified chief in town.

That's a laugh. What system are they going by in claiming Derek is the most qualified to forecast in the tri-state when he barely got here? There's a lot more to forecasting Cincinnati weather than book-learnin'.

someone clue me in since i've been away for a while...out of town...or country for the last few weeks...with no internet...derek is the new chief? so what about jim o'brien? is that why he wasn't on the air last night? do my eyes fool me or has sheree lost some weight and has sandra put on some weight? anyway...this would be the 3rd or 4th weather person change in the last year or so... i guess i'll just catch up reading all of john's blogs for the time i was gone. thanks for your work mr. kiese!

Let Derek go through a Cincinnati winter where a huge snow and ice storm is about to paralyze this metropolis, only to see it die out in Southeast Indiana or Western Kentucky when it hits this "unexpected" dry pocket. Yup, Cincinnati weather.

How about the power of ONE radar, a composite NWS radar and experience of Cincinnati weather?

We should all remember as 5 promotes Derek as the be-all end-all, that 5 just fired the man they billed as the undisputed severe weather leader.
