  • What can you say about the news? It was a broad scope of the day's events. The show is at the mercy of what happens each day for the first half of the show, but has an opportunity to explore larger issues in the second half.

    The format of the show is a nice way to bring the viewer through the news. The show makes a good attempt to explore the top stories and then give some depth to a broader issue that is not likely to just be in the news cycle for a day or two. The reporting is often solid and the anchors are personable. The continuing stories can be touching and emotional. I never really watched the nightly news until today, thinking that it was mostly a dumbed-down version of what was in the morning paper, but this show has proved me wrong.
