Lipstick

By the way they're carrying on, you'd think it was the most exciting thing to happen at WOWT since that woman came into the station back in the '70s and started stabbing weatherman Dale Munson with a steak knife.

We're talking about the "unveiling" of the new SuxNews set, which is, according to the 20-times-per-hour promos, scheduled for Thursday at 10 p.m.

It'll be interesting to see what the new facade looks like, but putting the same passengers in different seats on the Titanic wouldn't have helped anything, and we're pretty sure that'll be the case with the Big Sux. No set in existence can make John Knicely any smarter, Jimmy Thiedlecki any leth grating, or Maladroit Maddox's voice less nasal.

Won't John and Jimmy get lost on the new set? Not the brightest bulbs...

You can polish a turd and polish a turd but in the end you still have a turd.

But since SuxNews will probably be in HD, you'll be able to see every crack and nodule in that turd...

Um. I watched a couple minutes of that terrible Daybreak show this morning. And their new set doesn't look a whole heck of a lot different than the old set.

The way they were hyping the heck out of it, I was picturing something on the cutting edge of 21st Century technology. I don't know...I just had visions of that NORAD Computer Center from all those nuclear war movies.

Instead, it looks like they just bought a new desk, slapped on some blue paint, and used their Best Buy card to get some flat TVs.

Nevertheless Mr. Siedlecki still looks totally out of his element.

It was the best! Updated video on the open, update music (?), new set, hype!, hype!, hype!!

And the first thing that happened was that they were directed into the wrong camera. Nice work in the background there at WOWT, as usual.
