OKLA … REALLY.

So Steve puts the two girls or women together and it started off raunchy thanks to Jillian Barberie. The first thing Jillian had to do was blurt repeatedly the “F” word. Gee, thanks Jillian for blocking my twitter and confirming you are exactly raunchy which of course must be what you want to project. Did I really need Jillian blurting the “F” word? After all, these days, Alex Jones is censored for reporting real news yet the “F” word … really Jillian. Quick let me adjust the volume down a lot for a second. Jillian is cursing because she can. Consider her a kid in a candy shop, you remember those. The kid goes inside and they glance around to see if anyone is watching. Once they see nobody watching, they help themselves to a free candy bar or what they call a 5 fingered discount. You all know the type. The cute innocent quiet kid that you think they might be up to no good, but want to think they are just a fictional character of that sense.

Then there is “CHURCH LADY” Dorothy Lucey and where did her conversation quickly go? To talking about “Dicks!” Remember the Church Lady on GDLA and almost every morning we heard about “Sex Sex Sex” from Dorothy’s tongue. Dick this, Dick that and Steve finally cut in and said something to the effect about where this podcast was going as the raunch continued to denigrate it and remind listeners why GDLA went down in the ratings during the later years at KTTV.

A shame really that this couldn’t be a “CLEAN PODCAST” especially for a first show. Perhaps Steve can take control and really clean it up a lot.

Now with this podcast and the negatives, I will say that the trio here does work—chemistry wise. God help me for that statement but the chemistry does actually work and work very well. If this were structured better and cleaned up a lot, it would garner many more listeners.

An actual videocast would have been better because people would have enjoyed seeing the three of them. After all who needs a major network or smaller local affiliate anymore when you have global distribution over the world wide web. The resources for a new show exist now more then ever before.

So here is what I suggest. Get a domain going for the show. This way people can find the direct links. Then I would suggest if you want to post podcasts you seriously consider https://player.fm/ where the mp3 podcast can stream freely online or even be downloaded. If you want to just post the podcasts you could on YouTube still or perhaps on several video places such as Twitch.tv and of course right now on Dailymotion.com — this way your podcast in a video format could be listened to. My suggestions might be to get together and actually do a video with the three of you. The video can be streamed online again the aforementioned video sites above and also as an mp3 online as well. I would suggestion you guys cut in commercial advertisers in your video and gain revenues that way. I would also like to see Lisa Breckenridge involved in this. I think it would fly well with the four of you, just a personal thought of course.

Potentially it was nice to hear the three of you this evening, less the “DICKS and the word “FU-K” repeatedly popping out at my ears. No, nobody needs to slap an ass Dorothy 😉 caught that little insert too.

This has potential if it gets cleaned up and structured a bit better unless of course its intent is to be free and wild.

I’m actually re-warming up to Dorothy Lucey maybe!

I have stated here that Dorothy was completely out of control with sexualized comments especially during her last months of tenure at FOX. It also caused Misses Jillian Reynolds to go onto that topic as well. In a sense though, revisiting who they were, what they were doing, in hindsight, they were fixable from a production point of view. I think having a staff meeting and sitting both ladies down and giving them the rules, the lines, what can and cannot be crossed before the public was doable, so what went wrong?

Well, both ladies made it easier for KTTV to get rid of them and save big bucks in the long term. Did they have to? No, but they did. However as I just stated, it was a fixable situation. The problem is that they contributed to KTTV’s loss of viewers but were actually not the underlying problems that caused viewers to flee.

Those problems have still never really been addressed and run much deeper then anyone wishes to admit. The underlying problem mainly for which Dorothy and Jillian were gone was show format and viewing times. That is it in a nutshell and those issues still remain uncorrected. I am vetted in this analysis by the fact that two new hosts, a set redecoration were added and the numbers are still to a point, down!

So in a sense, Misses Lucey and Misses Reynolds dismissals did satisfy many viewers and also saved FOX money, but did not fix the underlying issues. While I blogged harshly on both ladies at GDLA and their morning acts, I could not have been as harsh as others in the general viewership were. One describe Dorothy as a Raisin on steroids, while another stated Jillian was an out and out erhmm, whore, and that wasn’t the only ones. Comments got even worse, but I’ll refrain here.

Looking back, during better times, when numbers were up and the viewership was differing, Jillian, Dorothy and Steve did click and quite well. Unfortunately for the KTTV management, they did not realize the real crux of why the show’s recent numbers were down and tossed both co-hosts on GDLA as sacrificial lambs while the real fire remains. Yes, Dorothy and Jillian made it easy for FOX and so did Jean Martirez for that matter, I just adored the frisky news co-host. Other sacrifices this management has made Tricia Takasugi, Mark Thompson (the dancing weatherman) oh how we have lost talents.

FOX KTTV Morning Tanking Including GDLA.

I have posted numerous posts on the FOX morning lineup and also GDLA and how to fix them. I pointed out what is broken and how to recognize it in my previous posts. I provided structured examples to fix what is flawed. Explained the viewer demographics, and yes FOX, KTTV and Newscorp execs do read these posts and what did KTTV Management do for the morning lineup. They replaced to sexualized hosts and threw blame on them, spent bucks on a new set when the old one worked fine, but what they haven’t done illustrates why I am correct and why they have thus far failed and will continue to fail. Now, as far as replacing the co-hosts for GDLA and the morning news, that would not fix the problem. It goes back to the very basics of “who is your viewers?” And “when are they viewing?” And “why are they viewing your station when they are?” Those are of course the 24K dollar questions and once those can be answered, the issues at hand, the really deep issues at the root of the dropping viewership problem can be solved.

Thus I pointed out why KTTV needs to recognize their audience and the times they are watching and what they should be watching. As for replacing the co-hosts. Jillian Reynolds-Barberie-Waring needed replacement, in fact bless her x-rated soul. I am sure she’ll eventually appear at Playboy before Heff croaks from a twenty year old wife. (What a way to go huh!) 😮

As for Dorothy Lucey, I continue to disagree as to why she claims she was fired, because of her raspy voice. She should not have been fired on that basis. But the sexualized content on public airwaves was of course real reason for termination. On the news department, did we really need Arachnid K doing throat clucking on the TV screen for Steve and the gang? Well at least it’s medically informative. Jean Martirez should have remained as co-anchor next to Tony. As for Maria Sansone, she is a definite breath of fresh air over the “Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-…” that used to occupy that seat though I would have preferred that Lauren Sivan or Gina Silva occupied the seat instead. Both were local and also well adored by many. Lauren with her flawless news delivery and beauty and Gina with her blustery personality and anchor experience were both perfect candidates. As for entertainment we got KaChang’ed by New York by their heavyweight news entertainment anchor Julie Chang. My preference would have been more full time Lisa Breck there but I guess Lisa is content with her current setup and if she is happy, that is all that matters.

Isn’t it interesting that when FOX and KCOP talents vacate those stations they all go over to the enemy camp of KTLA as if KTLA needs them all with waiting arms open. Jillian who stated she parted amicably went to KTLA 5 and then proceeded to badmouth FOX…talk about an anchored slut aye. Good! KTLA needs her for their ratings. Dorothy visited them too. Then you have Elizabeth Espinoza, you know the petite one with the punky guys voice. I actually did say hello to her at the writers strike in Burbank a few years ago just before she left KTTV. She was actually quite rude and sudden to vacate the area. Must have been my big black Stetson and cowboy boots. Remember Rick Garcia with Lauren Sanchez, the multi-talented woman who doesn’t take her TV CaRear too seriously and could have been larger than life if she only did. What a real shame and waste there.

Then KTLA got KTTV’s recent entertainment blond from New York Courtney Friel although I like to think of her more as a Fritos in Nacho Cheese dip. Damned, why did I just make myself hungry? Well, time to grab a bag of Fristos and Nacho Cheese in the jar, kick back and forget about KTTV’s morning news and show much like the rest of Los Angeles public, after all, who needs 6 plus hours of constant news in the morning. 4:30am to 11:am

Dumping Whores, GDLA Made The Right Choice.

I rest my case.

GDLA Summer Run

Seems that with personnel changes at the co-anchor spot, GDLA is faring better, but not at its peak. That is because like the news, FOX execs some of whom now scathe my posts fail to recognize who their viewer demographics are and until they do this, GDLA will be so-so… This is not what I want personally, but just a major underlying fact that continues to fester, while Jillian what’s her face seems to tweet comments almost vengeful of KTTV and the show. I thought this woman had left amicably, oh well, a divorce here or there and sagging erhmmm, along with ratings can make anyone angry. Word of advice Jillian—might as well cash in and visit Hef for an issue spread before things go south 😉 of the belly for good. They usually start falling off later.

And so, I must say delightfully, Maria Sansone is a real breath of fresh air for the most part. Yes she has settled into the mess of GDLA (format wise) but this is probably as good as it gets. As for Julie Chang, she seems to be hit and miss. One day better, the next worse, always wacky and filled to the brim with the “Ghost of Luceyisms”

Dorothy Lucey (May 04, 2012)

As if some magic connotation is still occupying that worn seat. Seriously! I guess Julie should read up on some of my past advice of what would really beef up the “Entertainment Reporters” role for the show and especially the VIEWERS.

Has anyone noticed or is it just me, that there is much less input from other field reporters and anchors of the past. Like for example Lauren Sanchez. Of course Lisa Breck seems content with her part in all of this and if it feels good do it, right. Then there is “Chick Filet” Gigi Garciette.

Chick Filet

She’s always reporting on the grisly stuff, someone frying, another dying, yuck, too much for me. There is the other Lauren Sivan, probably one of the most precise reporters to deliver news almost flawlessly, someone local FOX could have promoted to the seat or Gina Silva who is still around a lot and multi-talented enough to anchor. If anyone should have been in Jillian’s old seat, Gina Silva and Lauren Sivan were more than adequate without going around the country fielding apps. Lisa Breck for reporting would have been perfect as well. We must ask about whatever happened to…say Bob DeCastro? Seeing much less of him lately. It appears that KTTV has cut way down on the anchors in the field, much more so then they should be doing. But then again, what is GDLA? It wants to be an entertainment show and ends up being more or less 3 hours of news with a hodge-podge of mixed in entertainment to carry it. Sadly, it could be a full blown entertainment show and FOX execs could fix it all if only they had the heart to, which remains missing.

Opposing Blasts From The Past

No, I’m not talking about farts here. Instead I decided to take a quick gander at what GDLA’s former co-hostesses are doing and wow, what a difference. Now Dorothy Lucey has moved on with a more dignified life it seems from her social media posts. Church work, being a mom, taking care of her family, doing charity work to help others. I am glad to see her going in that direction. I hope it brings her back to God from where she had strayed those many recent mornings on FOX’s KTTV “Good Day L.A.” show. Seriously, I am pulling for Dorothy, no joking here.

On the other hand, Misses Jillian Reynolds. She got divorced from her husband, the guy with the real gun breaking into their home and doing a mock rape which she loved. What does that say for being family oriented and worse, for the well being of her children without two parents to love and guide them together? Well in this case it remains to be seen. I suppose going on Howard Stern’s show and talking about one’s anatomy and how they do oral on other acting talents didn’t help. Nor getting on TV, dressing like a whore many mornings and relishing the slut image. More recently to show how very bitter this person is, they tweet that they want viewers to watch KTLA, don’t watch GDLA. That doesn’t sound like someone who quit to pursue their CaRear. Instead it sounds like someone who got their CaRear canned faster than Charlotte Tuna in a canning factory. Talk about stinking fish outta water—huh.

See, here’s the gig. While FOX and KTTV management refuse to realign their show times on the morning dockets of viewership types, GDLA is more or less working with the two new co-hosts. Maria Sansone, what can I say. A really serious breath of fresh air, and Julie Chang when not acting too wacky with Lucyisms, is also working out for the better. So poo pooing GDLA Jillian…doesn’t make the difference. Yeah your viewers left, great! But your postings bespeak volumes of what you are really feeling below the mental hood, and I would have to say deep anger at this time. It’s not so easy to get a show to drop one plus a divorce all at the same time with a fading CaRear and if you think the “C” cups will carry, think again. Like old CaRears, they eventually sag as well. Sadly, you and Dorothy were a part of a bigger problem and while both of you left GDLA, my point is that KTTV has a bigger issue with its morning showtime and line up. I would also argue so does KTLA, the rival channel in L.A.  As I have posted, the viewers split into two distinct categories based on the morning time and without addressing that, ratings will always suffer no matters who gets replaced.

However, getting mean and nasty as your FOX contracts dried up and bemoaning KTTV makes you seem much smaller than you already got through those horrendous morning actions and will continue to shrink your CaRear. When you laugh, the whole worlds laughs with you and when you cry, you cry alone. An old saying but so very true. While you have moved on hocking weight loss products (as if there aren’t enough diet products on the market already) and while you have some bit acting roles, truth unbeknownst that bemoaning the former employer speaks volumes of what really happened, no matters how you candy coated your exit. You may have fooled your brain-dead followers, but the rest of us see you for what you are through your actions.

And finally. Just glad that Lisa Breckenridge is okay and doing well, always a sentimental favorite  for just being an angel online all these years 😀 and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Is it funny or what?

Yesterday’s superstars are tomorrows throw-aways. Take Jillian Barberie Reynolds trying to salvage a CaRear she helped kill, namingly hers. She used to have it made, GDLA a morning talk show host co-anchor, the NFL gig, a Dating show, and on and on and on. It wasn’t that she had her detractors, she did. But what is sad here is that it didn’t have to come down to her hocking diet products on the weekend, groveling for any ex-hasbeen celebrity to join the commercial, like some fat old bold person, yeah that helps people want to stop eating…right!

She had it all baby, in fact she had two of them. Now her sniper husband is off shooting Hadjis in the desert supposedly for Obama’s gang and she is stuck with the kids and a weekend gig. There has been word she is doing a show perhaps on KTLA or maybe part of the makeup of the KTLA morning news team. Is that ironic or what. KTLA 5 news in the morning ends up with the FOX wannabes, but I guess when you are desperate to stay on TV any way you can keep your CaRear alive, you go there, besides do you really want to do the news on Detroit’s or Chicago’s outskirts? I think not!

In Jillian’s case she got caught up not only dressing like a slut and even saying she liked that sort of image on the morning shows, but consistently talking about sex, her body anatomy and so forth with the other one who got canned first. The big question remains that Jillian always wanted to do a nude playboy shoot with her buddy Heffner and the gang. Will she or won’t she, really who cares, do you really need to see this? I don’t. She ain’t flattering without the trashy cheap Hollywood makeup.

Best advice to Misses Reynolds. You are a mom now, you have two kids and a husband. You are lucky to have a family and home. Take care of them, forget the glitzy Hollywood phonies and live real life while you can with your loved ones around you. Stop trying to be the nasty girl, instead be a loving caring wife and mother to “YOUR” kids and remember that things you do today will be seen and read and heard by them tomorrow. Be better than what you portrayed yourself as the trashy, raunchy slut on TV obnoxiously speaking over others. You’ll be a far better person for being real life. Best words you’ll ever read.
