Joe Biden's Inauguaration

Jonwo posted:
He's definately aware of it, that is his act. His entire career and popularity has been built on that persona.

Problem is that is all its based on....


I honestly wouldn't be surprised if when he leaves politics, he ends up on something like Strictly or IAC.


When Sean Spicer became one of the performers on Dancing with the Stars in the US, that gave people a lot of cringe.

SNL and Melissa McCartney captured him perfectly.
I'm here to give you something to talk about! You're Welcome.

Ballyboy Asks a Question

I've always wanted to learn After Effects, and playing around with the Schools project file has been a helpful start, some stuff is actually beginning to make sense for me now Smile

Here's one I rendered out earlier, it's for use for my (rare) livestreams and a bit rough round the edges. Played around with keyframes to get the form-up animation going (although as I'm still finding my way around AE I rendered it out separately and joined it together with the main loop in Premiere), . I'd love to have a go at doing the clock animation properly too - here it's just a low-res 3D template and some layer tricks at the moment.

CNN International & Domestic

John Berman in for Anderson Cooper AC360. Although not mentioned very often, I believe John is one of the better CNN anchors.
He has a nice and clear voice.


John is also one of those anchors who gels with everybody he works with: Zoraida Sambolin, Christine Romans, Michaela Pereira, Kate Bolduan, Poppy Harlow, and Alisyn Camerota all had or have good chemistry.

Boris has been a target for comedy for years and I think he’s aware of it judging by the fact he went on HIGNFY and doing crazy stunts like getting stuck on a zip wire when he was Mayor of London and rugby tackling a child.

He's definately aware of it, that is his act. His entire career and popularity has been built on that persona.

He's certainly one of those "always there" anchors on CNN. Despite already hosting New Day, he's still the main substitute anchor for AC360, then show up on weekends at times.

Central News (East) main 6pm anchors were 2 women - Llewela and Marie (2000 - 2001; which was also IMO when the programme had its best ever 'look' titles and music-wise).

I can't think of any other news programmes that have had 2 main presenters of the same gender since then.

How long has it been now since all ITV national news bulletins became 'single headed?

Good news, although one wonders who actually is paying for it. A significant percentage of viewers have to be still on free trials.

Somehow I think Apple might be able to take the hit.

French TV

In a surprise move, France Télévisions is to launch a new linear channel called Culturebox on TNT from February. It'll be on LCN 19 which promises to be in style to BBC Four and Sky Arts.

Hopefully this won't mean Franceinfo will have to drop back to SD again to squeeze this channel in, unless they plan to drop France 4's resolution?

Hold on....I thought that France Télévisions has to do loads of budget cuts, which means that France 4 also will be closed after France O closed last year, so my question is, does France Télévisions will even have enough money for this new channel? I am a bit worried about that broadcaster's financial state


They'll be airing a lot of archive content, which is no different from BBC Four and Sky Arts. Expect to see a lot of those late night operas scheduled on France 3 getting an airing at a reasonable hour.

Going back to how they'll squeeze Culturebox in on TNT, I'd speculate they'll have Culturebox and France 4 drop to 720x576 SD, while Franceinfo drops to 1440x1080 HD. (France Ô and Franceinfo were SD with France 4 at 1440x1080 previously).

This would be a temporary solution as when France 4 closes in August, they can put Culturebox and Franceinfo at 1920x1080.

Wouldn’t they have been better ‘doing an ITV’ and calling it ‘LTV Birmingham’ ‘LTV Bristol’ etc...

International Sports Coverage

'At the beginning of the pandemic NBCSN was in around 80 million homes and had a sub fee a bit above $.40, meaning it was making NBC ~$400 million annually before advertising is taken into account'
That is what NBC are walking away from. It was also the No2 ranked sports channel in 2020 after ESPN. Beggars belief.
Could they not air sports simultaneously on NBCSN and Peacock. Best if both worlds like they do in the UK? Streaming and cable covered.
