I'm sure we were lied to. It seems like they just changed a few morning shows and called it done.

At least Top 10 has something to do with weather.

Personally, I don't have a problem with shows that are actually about weather, albeit I very rarely watch them. IIRC, The Weather Channel has said that those other "weather" shows (e.g. Fat Guys In The Woods or Prospectors) will not be getting renewed for another season. Still, I've seen a lot of posts on TWC's Facebook page from many angry and upset people (not naming names) who constantly complain and rant about the lack of live weather programming during weeknights and weekends and tell others to switch to alternatives such as WeatherNation or AccuWeather. Seriously, when will they ever learn that frequent complaining doesn't make things go faster if at all? :rolleyes:

I don't mind some weather-related longform in the overnight hours.  If only they would have regular LOT8s throughout the longform, there would probably be much less complaining.  A couple decades ago, TWC would simply air a pre-recorded hour of weather back to back to back to fill in the overnight hours.  Personally I would rather see longform than that.  Unless there is substantial severe weather occurring, I don't really expect live weather late nights.

As for Facebook or Twitter posts, I would not even waste any time on that.  I doubt the network makes any decisions based on the feedback there.
