An unexpected look behind the scenes at CityNews

johnboy 17 October 2012 19

I’ll admit to peeking at CityNews’ local tv ratings. Generally to reaffirm the extreme geriatric nature of the Canberra TV audience.

I mean New Tricks wins every single time unless there’s a major sports event.

Who watches a police procedural about retired police? Old people that’s who.

But this week’s has a bit of a bonus worth sharing:

Lunch at Tegan assistant

CALL BRIONY
Felix – done
Dollhouses – done
Meeting people – done
Shortlist for young canberran of the year – call
CALL Diana re setting up interview and pic ASAP Mike Zissler 0401 713 480 Need pic
Omar? Maybe next week. Wait and see.
Samara? Phone interview and pic provided.
Scott – Next week.
150 words re Thoroughbred Park – eating lunch there for Melb cup day. Write about new fit out, are there marquees available etc.
Morris car rally?

I’m sure they’ll have a grand time at the races dahlink.

But who puts their to do list in their copy?

(Just in case, here’s a copy)

I am the salt of the earth. Pink Himalayan mountain salt. But enough about me. What was the thread about again? (Yes, comment composed at Lonsdale Street Roasters. But that doesn’t mean a thing.)

That is just amazing…I’m almost speechless!

However, the cat having released my tongue (or fingers) I’ll just point out that they spelt Anh Do as Ahn Doe as well. Given that his show topped the ratings everywhere but Canberra, as they say themselves, that’s a bit of a slip.

As Homer might say, ‘Doh!’

This is amazing to you? You need to get out more, sweetheart!

Yes indeed. Then I might be as quick with the snappy replies as you, Mr or Ms nearly-a-fortnight-later!

Sorry, I’m a busy person and don’t have time to look at everything right then and there – unlike you Mr or Mrs Public Servant.

I can say that I am definitely not a public servant, ACT or Commonwealth. Which is undoubtedly good for the public service. But you are right, I do flick here all the time since they started sending out the Special RiotACT Rays. Damned rays. My beret doesn’t keep them out anymore.

you may need to upgrade the standard of tinfoil lining said beret, poetix – i’ll bet it looks a treat, but, as you sit philosophising in cafes, smoking gauloises and sipping your ristretto quoting baudrillard…

Hang on then – is it the RA rays or CSRI’s second dot point that is making people go blind?

I am at present at the Lighthouse (more girls than guys in a sexist way).
I’m getting drunk, masturbating, crying and can’t remember the last fortnight.
That’s right… I’m a candidate on Mad Monday…

I particularly like the twenty or so words as a reminder to write ‘150 words’ about Thoroughbred Park.

Hahaha! What an awesome to do list – very intriguing! I really do lead a boring life by example! 🙂

I can’t help but wonder if Mike Zissler is getting a lot of random confusing phone calls right now…
