The new EP is a "Tameka" who allowed Gayle to "T" the "V" to get her promotion. Tossed the old white guy to the sidelines, got a trendy ex NFL'er who is a poet(closeted fag like Miss Strahan), Could they be any more "multi-cultural" than an Indian co- President & white fish!!

The olde white guy get tossed to the sidelines(Anthony Mason) because he is the old white guy to was too agreeable to Orca lover. he is being replaced by a trendy ex-NFL'er BLM poet who is a closet fagola(like Miss Michael Strahan) Because Gayle controls the show(due to her access to ORCA) And the 2 of them are the right shade of brown.

R32, they pretty much destroyed it when they got rid of Charlie Rose. It was a fresh, solid morning news show with no agenda. Until Gayle got rid of the bigger name and took over.

I often wonder about these guys who were fired after one or a few women accused them of harassment. You never hear of them going to court over it. And was he slapping women on the ass? Or, could he have been asking them out? Maybe even just once? Why do we never hear what "sexual harassment via unwanted advances" are? Was he really preying on women? Or was it a time or two of being crass or asking the wrong woman out? Or, maybe it was indeed something more egregious. But we never seem to hear of that. Only the destruction of the man's life at the very accusation. American "journalism" will not allow further explanation or questioning. It seems all about getting said man out of the way to appease this woman or that woman, no matter how subjective his actions may have possibly been.

I like Mason, he’s very easygoing. He seems like if he walked into the sauna and saw someone blowing someone, he would just walk out without telling management. Gayle was OK when she was the underdog, now she’s an insufferable name-dropper. Tony, with his bedroom eyes, is handsome but neutered. Vlad has way too much chirpy energy.

Because Michael Strahan ended up being great for Live with Kelly and then for Good Morning America women (who thought he was hot) and men (who were okay with a former football player delivering their news) liked to watch him.

It's not so much about pushing out the old "white" guy as it is about copying that formula. He's kept himself in shape.

I like and respect Anthony Mason. He reminds me of a beloved college professor with whom you can discuss any topic. He shares his vast knowledge of music and culture with sounding arrogant or know it all. Gayle is too Afro Centric for such a diverse audience. A couple of weeks ago she spoke of her future grandchild’s room being adorned with Black images. Now., it is great that she speaks about Black culture and history, but she seems to be of limited culture and perspective. I am part Black, btw: part African, Jamaican, German and Cherokee.

The weekend trio for CBS This Morning is worth watching; the weekdays, not so much. Gayle is a pompous ass and gives her opinion about everything, whether you want to hear it or not. Plus, she believes she's the spokesperson for all American blacks. What's funny (ironic funny, not haha funny) is that she damned near had a heart attack when she found out on PBS's Finding Your Roots that she's actually 30% white. She was so embarrassed she looked like she wanted to crawl under a rock. Poor Gayle! Not as black as she thought she was.

Tony's kind of a lightweight, but I like Vlad and Anthony. Too bad Anthony's getting cut. I liked the new guy when I saw his tryouts, but probably not enough to keep watching after Anthony's gone.

The ABC morning show is one long commercial for Disney and other ABC vehicles (and I hate that Strahan guy -- between his lisp and the gap between his teeth he makes me crazy), and now NBC (which used to be a serious news show!) is nothing but housewife hints from Heloise.

Guess I'll be sleeping in.

R68 - I don't believe that Gayle was embarrassed by that. Almost every black American on that show has a significant amount of white DNA. Hell, Gates himself is 51% white.

The former head of the NAACP, Ben Jealous, is only 13% white. I went to college with him and I remember thinking - why is this white guy all stirred up about black causes?

This should not be a shock to most Black Americans - perhaps the percentage - but she's far from unique.

Gayle King has ruined this fucking show and the husbear still insists that we sit there and watch it for an hour each morning. Every single news item.. Every. Single. ONE, Gayle King must either apply a race-based spin on it, or bloviate. She also seems very immature nearly every day. Like her use today of "HaterAid". She's used that one before. She also makes them use urban/poppy bumper music and will be "dancing" sometimes when they come back from a break, and she'll comment on some cultural trend that kids are into as if she's done it or does it. Mentally, she's very young and is fighting age like a rabid tiger, and she wants you to know she's "down" with the cool kids.

That Anthony Mason has literally given her three hours of daily cunniligus every since he came on, which has made me detest the man. Still, I would often tell the husband "Wait. Just wait. He's gone any day now. There is no way she's keeping that guy around". And, yep... off he goes now that enough time has past since the last little scandal CBS went through. Gayle takes cues from Oprah and is her most devoted sychophant.

Don't any of you pretend that they have not already engineered getting rid of eye candy Tony Dokoupil - WHY? Gayle wants to be seen as a "historic" journalist like her BFF. I actually kind of like Gayle King in small doses, but she's turned into this squawking "BLACK! BLACK!! BLACK!!" cultural cheerleader thing. EVERY little black girl with a cute viral video is gushed over. EVERY black celebrity gets gushing reviews and praise by Gayle. Gayle literally tells the viewers who to like, and who not to like. - So, she is acutely aware that she can accomplish becoming a historic figure in American television journalism by helming America's first all-black television morning show and news program. This is where the transition is going. She's rid the control room of the caucasian male producers and they have, not surprisingly, been replaced by black women. One more change to go, sending DoKoupil off into the sunset, and Gayle will achieve her little coup and feel that she's now become a legitimate, historic personality in her own rite. That is exactly where it's going. Bookmark this thread, come back and buy me a fucking beer when it happens! ;-)

I have been watching all the news programs on CBS for years. About 1-2 years ago, everything changed. There are more commercials than there is content. I had always liked Gayle up until George Floyd's death and then the real Gayle seem to come out. Not only is she all about Black but there is an underlying racism against whites. If you've noticed too, that almost all the last segments were about black people. I have no problem with these segments but they should be scattered throughout the program.

I still think that CBS has the most news of the 3 but it seems to be changing somewhat. I can't stand all that fluff on the other stations.

I was in kindergarten and a white girl lashed out at a little black girl with “Black bare butt!”’ Then the black girl retorted with “White bare butt!” Before the children came to blows, the teacher quickly ordered them to their seats.

LOL R96 - Yes! She is STILL wearing those lycra-looking, tight wrap dresses and looks like twine around a loaf of bread. Fat oozing out everywhere. Not saying she looks horrible but she does look uncomfortable. I don't get the thing where fat or doughy women wear really tight shirts, pants or dresses. It looks so uncomfortable.

This morning, Gayle made sure her lap dog Vlad did another promo for LeVar Burton to host Jeopardy! Looking straight into the camera, Vlad fake-whispered "Hey Jeopardy, LeVar is STILL available!". They're as obvious as they are pathetic. And wait till that gay black guy shows up. That's where the smug and self-righteousness will really become insufferable.

I no longer watch daily. I'm turning more to NPR for morning news. Rose had to go but I miss those days. For a the few minutes that I did watch this week, I could have sworn I saw a Gayle, Tony and Anthony on a sofa. The end is nigh.

Gayle's oh I'm so easy and breezy act worn off after about 3 shows. Yes, being relaxed and not being super smooth is a great act to pull off on tv. Problem with Gayle is that she makes a gaffe every fucking segment every fucking day. That's not being relaxed and casual, it's just lousy preparation and presentation. Is she really the lynchpin of the show. Will ratings go to hell if she's not around. They're in 3rd place, I wish CBS would go back to being semi-serious news in the morning.

Starting with the black female producers she hired, after getting rid of the white women and men in the production booth, GAYle King has been aiming to create an "all African American morning show" for a few years now. And she gutted an Emmy-winning, rapidly ratings-rising program to do it. All in the name of BLACK BLACK BLACK!?

Really sorry that a couple of women got offended at Charlie Rose trying to ask them out. But it was a fresh, creative morning show when he was there and something that Americans who watch television desperately needed. But, nope. Race diversity, (i.e. pandering to anyone and everyone black) must trump everything in modern America. Asians? Gays? Lesbians? Indigenous people? Who needs THAT shitty diversity.

Meanwhile, the others have spent decades with degrees in Journalism and Communications working their way up the ladder, starting off in smaller markets, and gaining a reputation.

Here's info on the latest morning show ratings, week ending August 30th, so just before they launched their latest rebrand. They're not even close. Today and GMA still dominate them. I don't think a DJ's gonna help.

[quote] From AdWeek: Today was the No. 1 morning show for the week of Aug. 30 across the board, topping GMA in the key A25-54 demo and in average total viewers. The win marks the NBC morning show’s seventh across-the-board victory this season and biggest total audience delivery in six months (3.50 million). The show also delivered its largest A25-54 audience in five months (986,000). - Relative to the previous week (Aug. 23), Today grew by +11% in average total viewers and +10% among the key A25-54 demo. Relative to the same week in 2020, Today grew +7% in average total viewers, but shed -1% of its A25-54 audience. - In addition to averaging a larger total audience than GMA last week, Today has been the No. 1 morning show in the key A25-54 demo for 309 of the past 314 weeks.

Gayle worked best when balanced by the gravitas of Charlie and Norah.

When Bezos took his ride into space after Branson's, Gayle repeatedly asked of her cohosts, then Bezos himself, “isn’t [this] a game of ‘Whose is bigger?’ Honestly, it really isn’t?”

Comments like this may be what R156 what referring to when he or she says Tony is no longer taking the bait. Gayle will throw some silly nonsense out there that creates awkwardness unless someone jumps in to save the "bit". Tony now sits back and lets the stupidity hang in the air. He was supposed to provide some morning swagger but that's hard to do as a neutered second banana.

CBS Saturday's Michelle Miller would make this shitshow better. They'd have to dump Gayle and get rid of some of the new bullshit. Miller is smart, fun, has gravitas when needed, is telegenic and she switches up her hair. Drop the new guy and put Vlad in his place. You're welcome!

If R174's post is accurate and ratings continue to slide, I don't think they will get rid of Gayle, they will likely get rid of the new guy first. (I think firing Gayle, star of the show and Oprah's gal pal, would be a potential P.R. nightmare that the network would rather avoid whereas jettisoning Burleson would just be a hiccup, no disrespect intended.) We would get the standard-issue press release about how "it was Nate's decision because he never knew doing a morning network television show would be so hard on his family" and that he realized he "wants to spend more time with his kids," yada yada yada. That may be when Vlad finally gets his shot at the regular hosting gig, which might actually work since viewers like him.

The husband is still watching this mess and I venture in the living room with my coffee every morning just to get a glance. And yeah, there is definitely a hard push with the woke black thing. I find them all insufferable.

They should fade them all off. Install Jeff Glor, the BEAUTIFUL and incredibly talented, (and professional) Jericka Duncan and one other journalist type who can helm the more fluffy stuff. (But no, absolutely not Michelle Miller. She's polarizing and really hard on the eyes. Talk about wedging-in woke commentary. And she's noted for only wanting to do interest stories focused solely on black people.).

Glor and Duncan would be perfect both together as a team and command equal amounts of likeability and journalistic respect. The show might then begin its return to the pre Gayle King days where the ratings begin their climb back up. The ratings were both solid and growing under Charlie Rose. Gayle came on and I think it added just the right amount of full and attraction to the stay-at-home female demographic. But that was before Gayle and likely Oprah began fucking with it. CBS, in its notoriously desperate need to be political and progressive, just handed it over the Gayle and it destroyed what was happening there.

I have been watching since they switched over. Gayle has always interrupted everyone and learned that from Oprah who never let anyone talk,.

I agree that there were too many stories about just white people and not enough about blacks and Asians, etc. but they have swung the pendulum the other way. Now the majority of stories are about black people which wouldn't be a problem if it was only about the people but it isn't. It always because they are black and not about them. So they are turning it into a racist show.

I will say that they did have one excellent story on this morning where Nate interviewed his friend who is a cop. It wasn't because he was black but what it is like just being a cop and what he thinks should change. ALL of his suggestions should be implemented. The majority of the story was Just about the story.

What I want to know is why in hell we have to listen to each one of their opinions after every damned segment. I don't watch to hear their opinions, I watch to hear the news/story.

Gayle is so racist and every time there is a story about a black person she gushes. When it's a white person it's, okay they did a good job.

After all the gnashing of teeth and moaning and barking about the #MeToo thing that Gayle King has done, she had on Al Franken this morning. I'm not a big fan of his but he never should have been forced to resign the Senate. So she has him on this morning, it was a 15-minute love fest, promoting his tour and book, gushing over him. Gee, I wonder why Al Franken gets a pass from Gayle as opposed to, oh, say Michael Richards? Louis C.K.?

The hypocrisy of this horrible bitch and her hijacking of a news network along with backup from her friend is shameful for CBS, which used to be the most respected and storied news organization in America. Now, it's got Gayle King. What a fucking shame.

R210 - You really think that piece on the black "poet" cop was really all that? Seriously? Did you actually listen to his "poetry"? It was all mimicking of Dr. Seuss, very childlike. I was blushing for the man as they had him reading that stuff, and praised him as if he's some legendary civil rights leader. He's clearly some friend of a friend of Nate Burleson. I can't imagine some producer had them do that piece due to anything really unique or amazing about the poor guy. Then again, the producers are all now black women, which is why I think the show has become nearly as black-obsessed as CNN. It's ALL race-based stories. Even the "What to Watch" segment, that used to be the 'light hearted/entertainment' part, is all that Hatian queen Vlad whatshisname shilling race based stories, or reporting on whatever intense controversy is in the news. They keep the show full of racial tension and woke education segments.

R223, it's been that way for a while. It's always been a more progressive, left-leaning network, which is fine by me. But the morning show that got off to such a good start is now like watching MSNBC or CNN. But what's even worse? CBS Sunday Mornings! Drunk, semi-dementia afflicted Jane Pauley has literally ruined that program. We say that a lot about shows and people we don't like, but it's true that she's managed to isolate the audience and it's ratings since Charlie whats-his-name died prove that. It's ALL woke bullshit, Heavy-handed. Even during the course of interviews, me and the husbear noticed that no matter who the correspondent it, they must ask the subject matter a leading question about racism. "You must have experience a lot of racism growing up in this town?". .... "Considering your ethnicity, you must have overcome a lot of racism throughout your career..?" JESUS!! Recently they were interviewing Cedric the Entertainer and I was really getting into him, never having any interest. They were walking through his home town and he had JUST talked about how he and all his friends would hang out at that spot, where his first date was, and noted that he was from a middle class family. Then out of the blue, the dumbass reporter injects race into it, and of course Cedric had to give some shaky statement about how he "noticed it" etc. And he had JUST TALKED ABOUT how ideal his little home town was, how much he loved growing up there. Then again this last Sunday, they did the same thing to some Asian guy, who looked white really, a famous rock climber and documentary film maker. Walking through HIS hometown, and he's talking about his childhood and how his Chinese parents but pressure on him to achieve. They show photos of him having fun as a child... then comes the question, "You must have felts out of place at times, being the ONLY ASIAN in town"... Oh. My. GAWD!

Lots of little flubs this morning on CBS Saturday. Segments appeared to run short (or get cut short), then Miller, Glor and Jacobson would have to awkwardly stretch with banter until commercial, once falsely cuing to commercial and immediately bouncing back to the studio where they had to ramble about the previous segment some more.

It looked like they were getting mixed cues from the booth vs on set. They were professional, but clearly frustrated with what appeared to be some level of either incompetence or drunkenness behind the scene. Miller finally asked "Do we have more time?" to double check before ending a segment.

It could just be a new or a fill-in producer or director. Still, it's a more enjoyable show than the current M-F iteration.

For over seventy years, virtually every “news” program on every major broadcast network has been white-directed news (occasionally delivered by a Black or Asian person). There have been morning “news” stories that featured hikers, bikers, explorers, cops, governors, scientists, military leaders, children (or women) in distress, actors and holiday shoppers.

I said “virtually.” Sometimes breakout people of color (other than Ricky Martin, Misty Copeland, Tiger Woods or Obama) were featured. That’s happened for most of seventy years

White America didn’t notice, or care. People of color did.

Gayle has turned the old formula on its head. Still, she’s just driving the reported content on one morning show, on one network.

Rather than thinking about why this change might be, the forty-some percent are wondering why good old CBS still doesn’t cover their perspective ninety-seven percent of the time.

I do feel guilty saying it, but CBS Mornings, and really all the CBS shows are now very transparently black-centric. To black people I suppose that's okay. And it IS okay, if that's what they want to make it. But they won't just come out and announce a format change. So to the rest of us who've watched this network and it's once storied morning and Sunday Morning shows, it's overwhelming, heavy-handed. There is clearly a mission they're projecting, nothing they report is ever balanced or objective. Michelle Miller did a story this Saturday morning where she sat with a white lady that started a Made in the USA website. I swear it was the only time I remember her interviewing someone not African American. She's Marc Morial's wife, the former Mayor of New Orleans, (my former mayor), so yes, she and her husband are very, very black centric and consider themselves champions of the black community. Only, she brings it to her job.

It isn't really the centering on black people and black culture, it's the injection of race issues into even the most benign and trivial pieces. Something about someone starting his own baking company? Miller, Jacobs, King, whomever is doing the story brings up race, sometimes in the most jarring, crowbar type way. i.e. "Being a BLACK baker, there aren't many of those out there. You MUST have felt racism when you started your business What was that like?" That's pretty much verbatim of what they'll do. If anyone here doesn't believe me, watch Sunday Morning tomorrow and follow CBS for just a week. You'll see it for yourself. And it isn't organic. It's forced, as if it's been required by the producers.

That's what's become weird about this show and this network, and why so many people resent Gayle King. It was an incredible show before Charlie Rose left. Gayle was great, they all had a good rapport, it was fresh, something new. Now, it's pretty much as bad as CNN with all their race-base stuff, and it's kind of miserable.

Super nelly Vlad 'Doo-Tee-A' subbed for Tony again today. I watched because the husbear refuses to turn the channel while having his coffee every morning. (rule at our house is, whoever got to the TV first watches what he wants until and unless the other one bitches)

It's definitely become an African American-centric show. From 8-9am it was 100% stories and promos on black subject matters. That's cool if it's organic, like the news story on the murder of poor Jackie Avant. But then we get the 15 minute interview on the poor guy who just got out of prison from getting his conviction overturned after 40 years, (such a cherry-picked, random thing to highlight), the constant promos on L.L. Cool Jay lighting the national Christmas Tree, Serena Williams' writing a book about her kid's babydoll "Qai Qai", a sassy bald baby that dances like she's Cardi B. , Another profile on an African American person, I forget who, the whole Vlad segment that used to be the 'lite' portion of the show, highlighting funny/quirky news items, pop-culture, etc., now a daily segment featuring topics of racial injustice or "celebrating" a person of color (usually black) who's overcome racism/white supremacy/social injustice, following by a minute or more of pontificating by Gayle and Nate, the gush-gush-gush over whatever specifically curated highlight/black person has done something amazing or cute or "brave"... ugh... Someone upthread referred to this once brilliant morning news show as BET Mornings, and that's what it really is. That's cool if it gains ratings, but not sure how that will happen by isolating 80% or more of their audience. (I know, I know, I sound bitchy/bitter. I just need some coffee, and preferably a good morning show to start my day. :-/ )

She's really getting freaky with the outfits and those poodle bangs hanging over her face like an old sagging awning outside a broken down Havana coffee shop. Doesn't she have ANYBODY to tell her "NO! Don't do that!?!"

Just for the record, I was the one who predicted up thread, weeks ago, that Gayle is aiming to rebrand that program and laud it as the first all-black anchored national morning show. She would take much pride in that and why it might be cool, or a nice novelty, there's no way they're going to keep what's left of their audience. Then again, black viewers may flock to it in droves.

R282 - Link please? Link to any statistic showing this data? Link to ANYTHING addressing this as a routine problem? Link. Please?

Look, I have no doubt this happens/has happened. Being from the deep south originally where many small towns are majority African American, I also have no doubt the same thing has happened to caucasian and Hispanic people at the hands of black people. It's like all the hysteria over black people being murdered/shot by police officers and yet, unprovoked homicides of Caucasians by African Americans never get a news mention. It's never armchair quarterbacked. Never studied for causation, etc.. That doesn't mean we shouldn't rise up and be angry over the constant shootings and murders of black men by police. But according to the American media, they are the only victims. Or the only ones that matter and that just isn't true.

We ALL know America has racial issues. Guess what, so does every other Western country. Only in America, we tend to think of one particular race as perpetual victims of race-based crime and discrimination, and that isn't true. either Just because it's been more traditionally prevalent with one demographic or just because we think it happens more to one demographic shouldn't ignore the fact it happens to many others also. Yet, people like Gayle King will use their platform to focus and report only on the race/demo that she personally connects with. In doing so, she only creates more harm than good. It's unfair, and it's an insulting phenomenon that I think people are becoming increasingly intolerable of.

Gayle kind of halfway nods in approval but as he continued to talk, her facial expression completely changed, like it had hit her what he did. And in Gayle's defence, Tony WAS doing classic man'splaining. There is no way that wasn't "talked over" after the broadcast. Or maybe Tony's already been given notice and just didn't give a fuck.

Nate drones. I saw him on a sports show the other day and he drones there too but it seemed more appropriate. He has little inflection in his tone. He has improved a little but he seems rather bored with most of the stuff but lights up when it's about sports. This morning while reading his cue cards it sounded like he didn't know how to read.

I watched this show religiously from beginning to end. Now I turn it off at about the halfway mark. Soon I won't even be watching it.

I watched GMA for the past couple of days and have been happily surprised. It's pretty dense with content and runs like a well-oiled machine, with more fluff towards the end. The last segment of today's show was a performance by the cast of the Company revival, which was fine with me.

Everyone seems off their game this morning (Wednesday 12/15). I wonder if they got word they're being revamped, again.

Nate dresses just like the other clowns that do commentary for NFL broadcasts.

by Anonymousreply 297December 15, 2021 12:49 PM

Today, their last segment was the "comedian" who does a man-on-the-street shtick for the daily show. Gayle just LURVS The Daily Show. So, they had this guy on and started with a clip of him harassing people somewhere in California who were protesting mandated vaccines. The guy is giving some woman a hard time asking why she's an anti-vaxer. The woman replied twice, "No, no! I am NOT against the vaccination, don't go there with me., I'm against it being required". Then he interviews some white trashy type guy who is also saying that he's against vaccine mandates. - They cut back to the studio where Gayle and company are rolling their eyes. Gayle asked the "comedian", "How do you even keep a straight face with THOSE types of people?" And she goes on to remark "And you know, what surprised me is that this was CALIFORNIA! You wouldn't expect that from California, (or something similar.)"

It was a jaw-dropping, moment of Gayle putting her classism and racism on full display, if not intentional. The very thought there would be unwashed ignorant white people in California, of all places, where only the beautiful and enlightened people live! I immediately turned it over to see the last few minutes of over-stimulated, candy-colored, fluffy GMA where they were having studio hands dressed as elves handing Robin, George and the gang stockings of their favorite books so they could recommend the books they like for your "holiday reading". LOL! GMA... It's a fucking tacky mess, but they don't wallow in the maudlin, morose, intensely politically partisan trash that NBC has allowed their show to become with Gayle King. I may start watching them instead

Look, Nate Burleson is really a cute/very handsome guy, and he comes off as nice enough; and I hate that there's so much disdain for him on this thread, which I've joined in on. But the sad truth is what everyone knows, even what the New York Post has hinted at. And that is that he won his job via racial nepotism. Dukoupil and even Gayle have had careers in journalism. There were so many other people they could have selected who REALLY worked and paid dues to have that chance. But the ever-horny, always-needing-a-man mentioning Gayle selected him because of his looks in every way. He's handsome, charming, and, most importantly to people like Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey, he's black.

I'm a gay guy but have a big time crush on Jericka Duncan. She's absolutely beautiful, so professional. I never detect her attempting to skew stories or inject bias politics in what she's reporting on. She seems like a real pro, and is definitely a real journalist. So, what was wrong with her? It would have given the show a young, attractive black woman who has already been tested and no doubt would have resonated with viewers, even attracted more of that demo they clearly want to attract. But nope, they had to pull in somebody Gayle could flirt with and who likes doing the little shuck-and-jive thing she engages in. It's too bad. We really could have used a somewhat intelligent morning news program similar to what CBS Mornings was in the beginning.

r323, you only think Gayle King being horny is behind this? lol. The viewership for these shows are largely women. These decisions are driven by the demographic, and women enjoy looking at hot black guys on TV. Its not hardcore journalism here. Michael Strahan crossed over and proved it. Old white men have delivered scandal after scandal across the board and kept their jobs for decades, people are over it. Its refreshing that the networks are finally catering to what women want and Im sure as hell not complaining.

Finally, some behind-the-scenes gossip that explains why CBS Mornings is going down the shitter.

[quote]A tough, new boss at CBS News is slashing costs in a bid to revamp the struggling network — and he’s also provoking complaints from employees, with some grumbling that he is “rude” and “micromanaging.”

[quote]Rank-and-file at the third-place network gripe that co-president Neeraj Khemlani — a former Hearst executive who along with ex-ABC executive Wendy McMahon took the reins in May — is demanding more work even as he axes resources, with some raising concerns that ruthless bean counting at CBS News is “cutting it to the bone.”

[quote]Meanwhile, Khemlani has been working to reverse a ratings slump at “CBS This Morning.” Last fall, he changed the show’s name to “CBS Mornings” and replaced co-anchor Anthony Mason with Nate Burleson, who joined King and Tony Dokoupil at the anchor table. He also moved the show from CBS’ Broadcast Center on 57th street to a second-floor studio in ViacomCBS’ corporate headquarters in Times Square.

[quote]Critics said the moves amount to “CBS Mornings” copying the branding of Jane Pauley’s “CBS Sunday Morning,” using the show’s golden yellow sun logo and music theme. Staffers on Pauley’s show are “pissed” that the exec “ripped off” their show, an insider said.

When you look at R366's comment about Dukopil and stop and think about it, he is indeed more of a pretty face. He isn't the most smooth of journalists. He's very good as a field reporter. Has that look, does well with the short pieces etc. I can't see him helming an evening news program or another morning chat show. And as sexy as he is, I get the impression those good looks are going to fade very soon. I think his face will be one of those that look much more weathered than his age.
