KCWI, the CW affiliate in Des Moines owned by Pappas, wanted to know what viewers were watching specifically. So they created a spot to find answers. “I saw public TV do a ’thank you for watching’ so I thought we’d do a ‘tell us what you’re watching’ spot,” says Ted Stephens, KCWI’s general manager, who […]
“I saw public TV do a ’thank you for watching’ so I thought we’d do a ‘tell us what you’re watching’ spot,” says Ted Stephens, KCWI’s general manager, who came up with the idea and wrote the script.
“And we immediately started getting feedback. It was like, we like this, we don’t like this.”
Response to what we watch on KCWI-23: We watch wholesome shows like The Middle and Raising Hope. Plus, we watch Great Day when we have a chance. We will also watch a baseball game or good movie, when one is on. But, we really hate shows like TMZ and never really cared for Modern Family … this is Central Iowa, not Southern California. None of your primetime shows appeal to us either. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
When I moved to the area from Ohio last summer I began to watch Great Day because I liked the way the show highlights area businesses and upcoming events. The show is interesting, fun, informative and current.
So, you wanna know what we watch on KCWI23? A lot! We start off watching Great Day. Adore Lou and Jason and wish you’d let them wear jeans! Jackie is pretty. Then we come back for Cops Reloaded at 12:30. From 5:00 to 7:00 pm we watch The Middle and Modern Family. From there on, it depends on the night. On weekends we watch it off and on throughout the day and evening. Just depends what’s on.
We really like KCWI23! Great Day has such a perfect balance of guests and it’s a great way to start the day!!
I had never really watched Ch. 23 but after seeing the commercials for Great Day, I am now a daily viewer of this local show.
