Title: Blooper Thread
Post by: G2003 on July 15, 2007, 02:09:26 PM
To conserve forum space, we should have a thread for Bloopers.

THere was a blooper just now on the 8s where they were playing 2 songs at the same time! Then it just went to one. It
was funny.

We should ask Kyle if he got that on his thingy, maybe he can post it.

I wonder if they ever played the regular lf music for over 2 minutes? There used to be a J flavor for the WeatherStar 4000 or something like that.

Yes, back in the 90's there were several three minute flavors (including the J), and even one five minute flavor (though it was short lived).

Actually the J was the only three minute flavor, although it was sometimes called an LL flavor (if it was played at :10 and :40). The five minute N flavor was in use overnights through 1990, and there was actually a six minute O flavor that was used through 1988.

I'm thinking that you might be right. Since the higher temps are with the cities that show the sun icon, it may be that the conditions being reported for those two cities were outdated.

It is probably due to the physical location of the cities. On the west coast, cities by the ocean typically tend to stay cooler than those cities inland.

Yes. The sun should still be up at 5:28 (PM, I assume).
Title: Re: Blooper Thread
Post by: lfmusiclover on July 23, 2007, 01:06:47 PM
Yes, that would be correct. I didn't look at the time. I just went by the fact that there were more moons than suns.
Title: Re: Blooper Thread

You are correct. Scotts Valley, which is about a 10-20 minute drive from Santa Cruz, often has dramatically higher temperatures than Watsonville or Santa Cruz.

Another thing I find strange about my IS is that none of the HiRAD locations ever report fog. Only the airports do (Watsonville, Monterey, Salinas).

My IS had a radar blooper earlier. For some reason, snow appeared on the last frame of the radar (we all know it can snow at 80 degrees :P), and because of that, the winter precip. indicators showed up under the radar titlebar. That's the last thing you expect to see in Florida! :D

That's why I said it didn't have the old TWC logo. ;)

Whats Full controlled mean?
It's the control room that produces certain shows, such as PM Edition, Your Weather Today, Evening Edition, etc. It is capable of a lot more effects than the master control room is, and the graphic quality and audio quality is much better than master.

Master control, on the other hand, is less capable than full control. They produce the 1st hour of First Outlook, all hours of Weekend Outlook, all hours of Weather Center (except on Weekends), pre-recorded programming), etc. They don't have a lot of effects they can use, although in the past few years they've been using some full control effects, but not all.

Kyle would be able to explain better, though. ;)
Title: Re: Blooper Thread

Title: Re: Blooper Thread
Post by: wxmancanada on September 08, 2007, 08:46:05 PM
I just wrote out a huge explanation of how it works, but simply put.. The control room feed goes through master before it goes to transmission.

Also, Stephen your pretty much right. Simply put, the control room has a bigger, more expensive and more capability enabled switcher where as the switcher in Master can only support non animated keys with 128 bit text, it can also only perform simple fade and cut animations for lower thirds and keys.

LOL! Here's an exchange I just heard between Bill Keneely and Kelly Cass. Basically, they were talking about how fall is only two days away, and that Mike Seidel was going to be here in MD reporting. This was being said while they were showing a picture of a pumpkin patch on the screen. Kelly commented that Mike was their Linus, to which Bill replied "Yeah, we'll put him out in the pumpkin patch to find The Great Pumpkin!", referring to the Peanuts characters. Then Bill says:" Of course, we know Mike works for peanuts!". I found that incredibly funny. :rofl2:

At 5:01 PM CT, they used an Evening Edition lower third. They noticed it quickly, though, as it disappeared after a second, and a few seconds later, used a PME lower third.

They're also using the normal LIVE tag tonight instead of the PM Edition one, even though it's being full controlled (master controlled PME Weekend never uses their own live tag for some reason).
Title: Re: Blooper Thread
Post by: Spring Rubber on February 16, 2008, 06:29:21 PM
They've now switched over to the normal PME Live tag now.

So if we see show-specific Live tags (like those on PM Edition, EE, A&B, Weekend View), it means that show is full controlled?

Yes. However, sometimes (I've seen this happen on PM Edition and Weekend View), they will use the normal LIVE tag on a full controlled show. And, First Outlook, Your Weather Today, Day Planner, and Weekend Now do not use their specific live tags anymore, even though they're full controlled shows (except for the 12 PM CT hour of Day Planner).

I left in late 2005 so I am not too too current with what is happening or what has happend since then. Once I return back to Atl I will try to bring everyoneup to date with the happenings and exact workings of things.

There were some odd happenings at 11:30 AM CT on Weekend Now Saturday morning. The segment started with an elongated black screen with Severe Weather music playing, and then Kevin Robinson gets tongue tied trying to say "Severe Weather," leading him to give up and let Eboni say it. They then follow up on Kevin's goof when introducing Dr. Forbes, who proceeds to turn it into a little pun.

I also included the rest of Dr. Forbes's segment for the heck of it.

Correct. Though I don't understand why they use the older lower thirds for that, because it looks like they could just use the current lower thirds to display the current observations. :unsure:
Title: Re: Blooper Thread
Post by: Spring Rubber on February 21, 2008, 05:49:37 PM
AFAIK, those L3s pull the current conditions data directly from the source (NWS or HiRAD) directly instead of being typed up by hand. I guess they never bothered to set these types of L3s up for the new format, which is why all shows use their old L3 styles for this function, except for EE, which, for whatever reason, uses a purple version of the old WC L3 style.

Today at 11:21 PM ET, they broke in with a Weather Update. Alexandra was doing the Weekly, Planner, then they showed the main desk with two empty seats, then, showed a live feed from Jim out in the field, then broke away to a blank Weekly Planner map.

After that, a blank screen came in for a minute or two.

Now during the commercial break, we see the main desk with people working in the background, and no audio. Getting this on tape...

Now we see Rich Johnson in studio...

Edit: Now hearing "Broad Street" by George Howard in the background, then it cut out.

Edit2: IS cut in after hearing WWCH promo and CC sponsor music.

Adam didn't even get to say goodbye to the gang tonight on EEWC. Instead the last segment anticlimactically went down like this:

*return from break*
Adam: Hey, Everybody! Your Sunday Outlook is coming up right n...
*show cuts to break, ends*

Yes, that all happened within five seconds. Someone really screwed up the timing on that. The only thing I could think is that someone programmed Saturn incorrectly; I noticed that the break leading up to that final segment lasted much longer than it should have.

wow...they are having some superb problems just now.  When they came back at 1, there was no audio.  Trammell kicked in for a little bit (30 sec or so), then they cut to Dr Forbes, who's audio was out.  Finally, they got to Carl who was bewildered as to what happened.  Now the audio is getting all messed up...

I think we set a new record for longest PM Edition opener ever, and on full control at that! When they cued the opener at 5:30 PM CT, it wound up lasting for about 25 seconds! Even Betty Davis laughed afterward at how ridiculously long that was. Video to come later.

Probably just a coincidence, but fitting nonetheless. :P

Dwight (AKA Awesome Master Control operator) appears to have this Easter Sunday off, and it really shows. There have been numerous production slip-ups during this broadcast, including just a few seconds ago. When they came back from break, the camera went to Kristina, who had a deer-in-the-headlights look and said "Okay" to the master control operator before finally acknowledging that she was on the air.

Just now at the top of the hour, they accidentally went to a tape of Rich and Sharon on EEWC instead of live First Outlook. Master caught it quickly and switched to a WWCH ad until they could get things set up properly. The ad was followed by the proper WWCH top of the hour bumper, followed by First Outlook.
Title: Re: Blooper Thread

Then at 3 AM CT, they cold opened First Outlook; the opener never played.

Woah, WTF? I was watching the NASCAR final practice on SPEED, and turned to TWC at 9:59 PM ET, and I see Studio 1B with empty seats, then after maybe 10-15 seconds, they play the EE teasers.

Title: Re: Blooper Thread
Post by: Spring Rubber on March 29, 2008, 10:08:18 PM
I was watching the IndyCar race (don't kill me! :P) when I tuned to TWC and saw this. The HD feed didn't even get the teasers; it stayed on the Studio 1B shot while EE was starting (you could see EE on the in-house TVs), and it didn't switch over to EE until Adam went to the key wall.

What happened is that master accidentally sourced its own production system instead of the "full" control room. (note the plain blue LIVE tag in the upper left-hand corner). They probably switched the SD feed over to full control first, then switched the HD feed over later.
Title: Re: Blooper Thread
Post by: Spring Rubber on March 31, 2008, 04:57:23 PM
They really lost it during the 3:40 PM CT hour of WC. When Jeff was at the key wall, they accidentally displayed nothing but a black screen on the key well for several seconds; then, after Jeff was done, he tossed to Vivian at the desk, and the camera suddenly started rotating to the left, focusing on the empty seat next to Vivian for the entire time that she was talking.

Did anyone see what happened at the start of EE? They started about a minute early, and it apparently did not start as planned. It stayed at the black screen for several seconds, then went to an emergency Sat LF for about 30 seconds, and then the EE opener/teaser played.

On a related note, I notice these kinds of issues tend to arise when EE Weekend starts early (which happens most of the time).

Reminds me of a blooper that happened years ago where Jeff Morrow was in the studio and tossed it over to Gene Rubin at the desk, but all that was there was a spinnnig chair.  :rofl2:

It all depends on how far the zoom out is. The map would get way too busy if they kept all the county borders there.

Although I haven't seen it, I imagine the maps have to cover a lot due to the vast amount of severe weather tonight.

While doing the Weekly Planner, Adam had Viz|Weather mess up on him and keep regenerating the Saturday Forecast map instead of moving forward.

On another note, the maps he was presenting were precip maps with the city indicators removed. Instead, the map displayed selected high temperature ranges (i.e. 80s, 90s, 100s) displayed inside translucent boxes.

Here's how I remember it happening: They had Rich up at the left video screen, then he stepped out of the picture, and then at that point they went to a wide shot where the entire projection wall was in picture, and you could see Sharon giving the clicker to Rich in the center.

I think that was supposed to happen, because Forecast Earth is now airing in HD for HD viewers (according to Spring Rubber), and it is letterboxed for SD viewers. It's possible for them to have used a non-HD ready shot in FE, which would result in the pillar boxes to be shown.

Oh okay. Thanks for explaining to me what is going on, Stephen.

However, I don't think that The Weather Channel should show the letterboxed format on the SD feed and then add the side panels to make the "viewing window" even smaller. It just doesn't make it as watchable. I don't see this problem with Epic Conditions and When Weather Changed History, but why Forecast Earth?

Probably why it didn't stick out to me.

Paul, the attitude isn't necessary. I'm not Matt or Tyler, I don't play favorites. You'll be out of here just as fast as anyone else would be.

Ummm, what impression did you get that anybody "play favorites"?
Can you explain where that "out of left field" statement came from?

This has been a weird PM Edition so far. If having Mike Seidel and Kristina Abernathy anchoring wasn't enough, when they tried to go to the Midwest with Kristina, they accidentally sourced the now-defunct WPS, which was displaying an old-style Southeast current temperatures with some overlays at the bottom that looked to be something that only the OCMs would normally see on their monitors.

Something got screwed up at the start of YWT today that caused the whole teaser/opener combo to take a whole ~55 seconds, with most of the time being spent showing the frozen opener on the screen.

The positive side? They played through the whole YWT theme without anyone talking over it, and I have it recorded! I'll post it later today.

At 6:10 PM CT, they played the Storm Alert: Hurricane Bertha opener.

Now we know that the Storm Alert theme music uses a warped version of the normal Tropical Update signature designed to sound more "disastrous" along with a darker sounding theme overall.

The "Storm Alert" text is even more obscure than the previous package; it only appears inside the text that flies around at the start of the opener, but the hurricane's name is in red instead of yellow.

It's not specifically used for just the teaser - it's part of the entire PME package. Also, all the morning shows use the same sponsor screen with YWT music, WC and PME use the same sponsor screen with WC music, and A&B and EE use the same sponsor with PM Edition music.

IMO, A&B should use the EE lower thirds (they have on some nights but they just go back to the daytime lower thirds a day after), because the A&B colors are mainly dark blue, and the EE lower thirds match that color more. :yes:

Since Cheryl's mic was still enabled, you could hear her whispering, "I don't get it," and then you could hear someone else in the room tell Cheryl that Ray's mic wasn't on, so Cheryl told Master, "Can someone turn his mic on? Ray's mic's not on." Video to come tomorrow.

At the end of tonight's EEAD, Sharon said, "Welcome back, I'm Sharon Resultan along with...Adam." Shortly thereafter, Sharon revealed that the reason she didn't say his last name was because she forgot what it was! She said she was so used to saying "Rich Johnson" that she simply couldn't think of Adam's last name. Adam then did an aside to the camera and said, "But it's not like she doesn't like me and wishes she had Rich Johnson back."

After that, Adam tried to tell us the forecast for tommrrow, but he forgot what day tomorrow is and had to ask Sharon for help. They both agreed that it's getting late, and it's a good thing they were going home right after that segment.

And even though it's only Wednesday, we already "learned" again that Adam has Monday off.

The beginning of the 10 AM ET hour of Day Planer was really shaky to say the least.

The jib camera was terribly shaky and then when they got to the desk shot it was really off-center with the desk.

That probably wasn't the jib camera; it was probably the camera on the overhead track, which tends to be horribly shaky when in motion. The jib is usually fluid in motion from what I've seen.

Wow, that whole last segment at 10:30 CT pretty much fell apart. They had Sharon's implementation of Titan stuck on the Hurricane Advisories for Gustav, and Rich's Titan was stuck on a satellite image of Gustav, so Rich wound up just stalling by talking about Gastav and Hannah until they could get to break to sort things out.

I was replaying my video from last night, and I noticed that they started EE with the red Storm Alert lights around the walls of the studio. After that, they changed to the daytime white, then to the morning light blue, and they stayed on that color for the rest of the night, even through EEWC. I guess somebody really goofed there; hopefully the EE dark blue lights will be back tonight.

A hilarious moment happened on EEWC tonight during the start of the final Tropical Update. Sharon was introducing the segment from the desk, and the said, "Now, for a look at the tropics, we turn it over to Jeff..." Rich popped up on the LCD screen then and did the "Rich Johnson arm fold" with one hand on his chin with a look of "???" on his face. Sharon started laughing and was like, "Wow, Rich, I'm really sorry; I don't know where in the world that came from!" Rich did his characteristic sigh and was like, "Yeah, I guess that's not the first time in my life I've been called 'Jeff'. Anyway...let's go."

Local forecast blooper just now.  At the 10:28 (Central time) local forecast, there were a bunch of noises to start out the local forecast.  They probably lasted about 50 seconds, then the local forecast went totally devoid of sound.  The sounds they featured sounded like a clown at a party.  There were a bunch of honking noises.  Very weird; at first I actually thought it was a song, but I quickly realized that no song would feature just random noises.

The other night on EEWC, Warren Madden said that Mt. Lemmon and all the other slopes in southwestern Arizona could receive snow.

But there's a catch:

It's inside the Coronado National Forest. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronado_National_Forest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronado_National_Forest))

Where is that red dot located: SOUTHEASTERN Arizona. Warren Madden slipped up.

On a lower third, they just displayed Tom Moore's name as "Moore, Tom". They quickly took it down afterward. My question is: how did they even make that mistake in the first place?

Apparently there are no "I can answer that!" images on google... Grr...

Anyways, there are two modes to the CG system, well 3, but only 2 are used while on air... the 3 modes are Edit, Playlist, and Animation...

Since you guys dont have the program, let use powerpoint as an example...

Edit mode in CG world is like having the main slide you are working with in the big box, and having all other slides on the boxes to the side.. Usually, the slide in the big window is the one that is on air. The operator can change the titles live, by double clicking a slide on the left, thus bringing it to air.

Playlist mode is where all slides / titles are listen in a big (what looks like a table) list format. This mode shows NO preview of what the slide / title will look like, but it does have a user enterable text description, and the actual key text.

I assume to operator was in Playlist mode to achive this error. Before the show the CG operator must have accidently renamed the actual title, instead of the custom usertitle.  Why they would give it a custom title with the name formatted like that? I dont know. What ever helps the operator do the job.

And of course, the last mode, Animation. People who go in there and mess with settings, well, die. Those are custom setting that control every frame of the flying key animation. These never get changed between shows, or at ANY time.

The attempted recovery from that was horrible; they resumed the commercials where the left off, but since they were manually overriding the rundown in order to do that, they forgot to kill the LDL at the end of that A&B segment, so the subsequent LF had the freezing issue that results from having the LF running over the LDL, and it didn't get better until the LF shut off over 30 seconds into the next A&B segment.

You can tell the IS is *really* struggling to render both LDL's. Interesting how it passes video fine, but it chunks the audio.

It looks like someone in master accidentally advanced the automation (as easy as pressing the space bar). The control room was notified and they "recovered".

Without a word of a lie, the master opp was probably fired. That's something that's completely unacceptable and the station manager would FREAK!

Yeah - it is a different camera, however there is a "smart" system incorporated with OverDrive, the system is programmed to know that certain aux buses are on studio screens (seen by a camera that is on air) so basically, when the camera was selected to be displayed on the wall, the system should have been able to detect that the selected crosspoint (TracKam), and the intended destination (Video Wall) would create a feedback loop.

[2009-10-03T14:19-0500] Update: At 14:18, a blank L-bar displayed for a few seconds, then disappeared. Then at 14:19, it did it again, and the LDL cued over it.

It's not going to be until at least spring 2010 or later.

What's happening is that DP and PME got a new production staff that appears to be somewhat inexperienced.

Heck, they played the Weekend Outlook music at 1 PM ET today.

Wow! You were 2 steps quicker than me! I just came in to post something about this.  And, having just moved from Phoenix, I do know they were talking about Flagstaff, AZ.

But, I can't say too much about the "oops!"  I'm a television news producer, myself, and I'm sure I've made similar mistakes in my tenure.  But, I think having lived in AZ, that certainly caught my eye.

Great piece, though!

Poor Todd.  You've got his named spelled wrong on the TV, and before that, it seemed that Alexandra forgot his name when she was talking to him about Weather Center.  She eventually said Todd after a few moments of looking down.. :P

To add...Nicole just called Todd, Paul.  (which is understandable)..everyone forgets about Todd.

I'm a little late on this, but Weather Center was having a lot of issues at 4 PM EST yesterday. Jim Cantore introduced the teasers, and then the screen went to a shot of the southeast radar. They must have played the Afternoon WC intro 3 times during that, and then finally showed the opener graphic, but still had trouble playing the music properly, and Jim talked underneath it.

@Billy: But you didn't see what was on UNDERNEATH the ISTAR LDL:


First picture: LDA on SD feed.
Second picture: This LDL looks simular to the 16% HD LDL, but the gradient is red, not blue!
Third picture: Notice the city name! Diffrent font! And notice in the lower left hand corner, and animating radar!
Fourth picture: Another pic of the red gradient.

pre-March 2010 icon sets are used for select graphics on the network, and will probably remain unchanged, so don't be surprised. The WC/YWT 5 day forecast graphics still use the old ones, because, well, it looks better on them.

It does seem to be a challenge to get one unified graphics set and stick with it, doesn't it?  Heck, even the WeatherStar 4000 had two sets of weather icons - one for current conditions and extended forecasts and one for regional maps and the "Today's/Tomorrow's Forecast" line on the LDL.

To also add onto Jesse's thing about the icons, just note that if TWC were to indeed retire the 2006-2010 set fully then the IS 2 would have the cheeseball set of icons more than likely but its just an opinion :thumbsup:

I really don't understand why TWC needs two icon sets. :no: I personally like the 2006-March 2010 ones. I know they didn't fit real well with the IS1, but they are certainly more realistic than the "cheeseballs." TWC should create or find one set that works for everything. Seeing two sets is confusing, IMO, especially on air! :wacko:

LDLs don't always have ads.  Honestly, I prefer them when they don't.  Some of those ads get SO distracting.  I do appreciate radars and other maps in the corner of the screen as necessary, as we've seen with landfalling tropical cyclones.

Sorry for the double post…

At 7:09 AM during the LF, the music stopped for a few seconds.

EDIT: Instead of making a triple post, I decide to tack another blooper onto my existing post. Anyway, my DirecTV LF is missing the high temp and the conditions for today on all 3 locations on the Getaway Forecast.

EDIT: Yesterday during YWT, there were two spelling errors. A headline read "volcano effecting millions" and another read "cholera outbreak hits capitol of Haiti."

They then abruptly cut off Nichole (who was talking like nothing happened) and went to Trammell.

Also, one of my DirecTV receivers has timing issues with its LF. Sometimes, it'll cue early; other times, it'll cue late. When it cues early, it's usually by a split second; a few times, it's cued in the middle of a commercial! :o

You have to give them credit for at least trying to put on as decent a show as they can.

That said, I've noticed that equipment failures seem to be MUCH more common than they used to be.  In previous years going back to when I started watching TWC in the late 1980s, equipment failures were extremely uncommon, or they were simply able to cover problems up so well that it was impossible to notice.

Recently, though, equipment problems of one type or another seem to be happening much more often.  I wish I knew why.

There have been issues with the SD national LDL and squeezeback. Just before the LDL cued out a few minutes ago, it was frozen at the CC for Philadelphia (or was it Pittsbugh?), with a white box over the icon. After that, when the squeezeback was supposed to cue, everything was black except for the program and an ad. Once the LDL cued back in, it was stuck for a few seconds with the logo fading in. There are white boxes over all the icons on the LDL.

Also, a few years ago before the HD relaunch :P, there was a map with airport delays, and on it, all airports were listed as closed.

Recieved a special weather bulletin a few days ago that read
... A shot of heavy rain moving through the area...

Doppler radar is showing a developing area of heavy rain in the
Raritan valley and the immediate Philadelphia area. This area will
be moving east central New Jersey between now and 10 mph.
Mesonet
stations are reporting rainfall rates of around one quarter of an
inch per hour. Anyone driving over the next couple of hours should
be alert for heavy rain and ponding of water in poor drainage
areas. Where possible please take roadways that are not less flood
prone. This rain is moving fairly quickly and should not cause
any problems with streams or rivers or cause widespread roadway
flooding.
I've boldfaced the mistake. I knew rain could move houses but never parts of a state. Surprised they didn't catch it.

PME and PME Weekend should share a graphics set. As to why they're using WC L3rds, I'd guess that ever since regular PME has been discontinued, they've not bothered to use the correct graphics.

Correct me if this isn't a blooper...

The Squeezebar came in for the LOT8's earlier today after the commercial break and LOT8's bumper. Then they went straight into Tropics Watch. Either something was damn important or they were trying something new and retarded.

it mostly likely fell though (test failed), which is why we haven't seen it since.

TWC wants to move in a direction towards Lifestyle Entertainment which basically means the Transparent Logo is here to stay on Long-form.

i wouldn't be surprised if they turned off the Satellite HD/SD LDL to incorporate the Transparent Logo to show during live programming with only the Intellistar/Intellistar 2's LDL's cuing.

1:18 PM (ET): The L-Bar had an interesting fail.  When it began, the national feed suddenly cut to black, so the Intellistar's data was superimposed on black.  About a minute into it, I heard "And we're back," and the show continued, but in full frame, meaning the Intellistar's data was covering most of the programming.  Just as the Intellistar finished, the full frame then pulled back as if the L-bar was to begin again, but the rest of the screen was black.  It quickly went back to full frame.  During this time, the Intellistar's LDL began, but the national feed LDL didn't start for almost another minute.

Yeah, why do they keep having problems with multiple logos cuing on top of each other? I guess they really want to let you know that you're watching TWC. :P But then again you might not even be able to tell what channel you're watching with all the jumbled mess.

Some day last week (can't remember exactly), Stephanie was in NYC for Wuwa. During the show they went from a live shot in the NYC studio to the TWC DMC with Jen Carfagno. Jen was messing around under the desk attempting to fix her mic, so she says. Stephanie says "Okay, lets go live to the DMC with Jen... who is uh doing something under the desk..." Jen says "I WAS FIXING MY MIC!" in a calm, yet definsive way. Stephanie says "SURE YOUR WERE! RIGHT!" I guess this was just another one of Stephanie's quirky moments.  :rolleyes: Needless to say, Jen seemed rather embarrassed after it.

Yes, I saw it live.  :)

I also remember one of the bumpers before a local forecast (from the days when they showed a high-angle view of the anchor desk broadcast live)... Dave Schwartz, I believe it was (but correct me if I'm wrong) was talking to a woman, started to sit down at the desk, but slipped off the chair and fell on the floor.  I can only imagine what they were saying in the control room.  :)

This was at about 3 PM on Saturday. The logo stayed on during the commercials and the squeezeback. This happened again sometime in the afternoon yesterday.


Earlier today (sorry for the blurriness):

The logo you were referring to appeared again at 10:23PM EDT. From what I've seen, it looked like it was part of the 7-day forecast graphics. Adam Berg had his feet over the logo so I'm certain that the logo is part of the graphics.

The logo on the background is for the 7 Day Forecast that airs on NBC during the rebroadcast of the 4th hour of the Today Show.
That's why the logo was blocked by the LDL.
Someone must have picked the wrong background animation file.

In reality, everyone does it. It's to make sure if someone uses it, they always know where and who it came from (like other NBC stations). They don't send over lower thirds, just the graphics usually and that may be one of their Max shows that had the logo on it and instead of using the one without it, they made the mistake. Just my assumption.

Either they did not edit the beginning and end and planed to use that segment or they ran the wrong report.

Same thing happened to the SD LDL. The IntelliSTAR LDL appeared as usual without any problems.

Uh guys, it would help to turn Vivian's mic on so that we can actually hear her.

Right before going to break at :35, Vivian's voice was just a faint echo, and they finally had to cut her off.  I'm sure this has probably happened numerous times, but it's still a blooper.

That usually means they turned on the wrong person's microphone (i.e., another OCM across the studio had their's on, and it was picking up Vivian's voice echoing through the studio - so her mic was probably completely off).

Not sure if you can quite call this a blooper, but some guy got the bright idea to try and bum rush Jim Cantore when he was reporting in Charleston, SC. Needless to say, Jim has very good reflexes.

I knew Cantore had been caught in the middle of a TWC dispute recently, and I knew the weather had been bad for many, but I didn't realize he had made enemies that would try to attack him.  :rolleyes:  At least Cantore won.

No, that college student, which seems right as that shot was taken at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, just wanted to be on TV and get attention.  Who knows if he was even fulfilling a bet to do this stunt?  Some people just never learn when it comes to impulsive thoughts. :rolleyes:

During WCL, around 2:12PM ET, the HD LDL/Sidebar wasn't present with transparent TWC logo present as if it were Long-Form. This means all the forecast segments were zoomed in in the HD Feed.

My IS2 was a little glitchy today. In the rundown bar at the bottom of the screen, the product icon would consistently show up lower than it's supposed to be. The bottom of the icon would even wrap around above the top part. So then, it would have to jerkily move up in increments, as if it were scrolling text.

watching the "Raging Nature" Tornadoes special, and i noticed, when they show a shot of skyscrapers in background, claiming to be in Oklahoma City while talking about how important the OKC media were during major outbreaks of Tornadoes, except, those Skyscrapers aren't in OKC, in fact, they aren't in the state of Oklahoma.

that's right, they used a clip of a helicopter shot of Downtown Dallas.  i should know, i live in North Texas and see those familiar skyscrapers on Fox (KDFW) 4, NBC (KXAS) 5, WFAA (ABC) 8, AND CBS (KTVT) 11 ALL THE TIME.

Is that typo like that on all IntelliStars though?

If not, for all we know, it could just be the IntelliStar's character omission/corruption/change glitch. It's been around for as long as possible, and only happens in rare cases.

Tropical Storm Hanna Local Forecast 3 - 9/5/08 10:58pm (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkZc2jIZ9D4#)

Notice how the C's on the advisory crawl got turned into small 6's... that's one example of said glitch.

Looks like the High Risk Live Shot warning is still in effect  :pinch:

At 11:00 AM the WCL opener was good until they crossed to Mike Siedel where before I heard a producer say 'MSNBC' and then Mike started talking, then stopped and then started again and eventually they just dissolved into the WCL open.

Also a minor blooper, when they crossed to Lowry (the hurricane guy) his mic was off  :o
