It makes you question how WJAR is still #1 in the majority of the ratings. WPRI is breathing down their neck and if WJAR doesn't do anything I think WPRI will eventually leapfrog them in more timeslots. They must be #1 because they have a colorful NBC logo next to their channel number...
Can't they at least make it a bar at the bottom of the screen like all other normal TV stations do? The graphic looks like one of those old scoring graphics you'd see during sports games from the 90s:
Sorry but if your closings graphic compares to something designed in the 90s then you really need to start questioning the decisions you make at that station.
Pretty sure it makes you happy that you can snatch WHDH outta the air. Also, compare the sound quality between WJAR and WHDH during NBC network programming. The difference isn't even close. Makes me happy that Comcast provides WHDH in HD here over in Attleboro.
There are just so many things wrong at WJAR. It'd hard to find a place where to start, but it'd be so fun teeing off at that station. I seriously think they're on borrowed time with the ratings right now.
One other thing, WLNE (you know, the bankrupt TV station that's up for sale) is capable of inserting on screen graphics onto network programming without breaking out of HD. Sure, they're not exactly dazzling graphics, but it doesn't ruin the picture quality. WJAR should let that sink in (that a bankrupt TV station that is a distant third in the market is more technologically advanced than they are).
