The evening newscasts on our local TV channels seem to share a similar theme. The main narrative is typically a shooting. Hartford is the location of the shooting on occasion. Sometimes it occurs in New Haven. A guy was shot in the chest during the shooting on Hillside Street in East Hartford on Wednesday.
The opening block of the newscast on WTIC-TV61, WTNH-TV8, WFSB-TV3, and WVIT-TV30 all included it as the lead story. There were few details, but there are never any good details when shooting is reported. On Tuesday, there appeared to be happening pretty frequently if you watched the local late news. The focus of local news on Wednesday’s broadcast was Bristol, the city where two police officers were fatally shot last week.

The burial ceremonies for both cops, which will be placed Friday at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, were the main topic of the newscasts on Tuesday. Police predict that there may be up to 50,000 attendees. Because local stations will be covering the services, it will be a hectic day.
For instance, WFSB-TV3 stated it would begin its coverage on Friday at 9 a.m., two hours prior to the commencement of the funeral. The service will be open to everyone in the state, which is now in mourning. Wednesday was a hectic day for sports as well. State basketball fans are always quite interested in the Big East men’s and women’s basketball media day, which was hosted at Madison Square Garden in New York.
WTIC-TV61 provided the most thorough coverage, with sports anchor Joshua Karp compiling various reports for the station’s 10 and 11 p.m. newscasts. As far as UConn supporters are concerned, there is no such thing as too much coverage of the Huskies.
The winter snow and red king crab seasons in the Bering Sea have been postponed for a second year in a row by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game due to declining populations.
The captains of “Deadliest Catch” will therefore need to focus on other subjects, like Golden King Crab, Bairdi, and Cod. The 29th season of “Deadliest Catch” will premiere in 2023 despite the prohibition on snow and red king crab. Whatever the captains try to catch, as long as they have to contend with extreme weather, it makes for interesting entertainment.
Even while it doesn’t dominate the rating list like it once did, “NCIS” is still the most popular scripted program on Monday nights. In order to surpass “The Voice,” which got 6.2 million people, “NCIS” hauled in 6.9 million viewers on Monday. With a No. 1 finish in the adult 25-54 age group, “The Voice” created a strong impression. “NCIS” is a program that just won’t go away.
With 12.1 million viewers, the “Monday Night Football” game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos was the most watched program on television. The days when “NCIS” even managed to surpass football in the ratings are long gone. In the cable ratings, sports programming occupied the top 9 slots. The sole non-sports-related entry was “Love & HipHop: Atlanta” on VH1, which came in at number 10 in the 18-49 demo.
