"Tired of the same old news? ...So are we" One poster for Pix 11 News at 10 reads. Pix 11, a local New York station is changing things up and they're telling us about it with these print adds on the subway.
Part of the same poster tells me: We're tired of the sterility of other news rooms. Desks? Moniters? Where's the sex? This show is going to be like Grey's Anatomy, but with Newscasters!!! More sexy women (Debra Alfarone might turn out to be a lesbian in season 3). There's a black guy. Marvin Scott might have it in for Mr. G... Foreshadowing for tons of action. The season will be fraught with drama.
You're thinking you hate old tvs? The men of Pix11 will smash tvs! Do you find newspapers too covered with words? They will throw more newspapers around and not even care! One of these men doesn't and even have a last name! Lionel! That's all you need when you're showing media who's boss!
Lest you think this show is all violence and no empathy Pix 11 leaves us with this:
"Do the other stations really listen...or do they just wait for their turn to talk? Welcome to the conversation. Every night at 10." So ladies, if you're headed to bed and your regular newsman just isn't listening, turn on Pix 11. They'll inform you just the way you like to be informed. Then they'll roll you over, spoon you, and ask about your day.
I cannot wait to watch the news.
