nbCUNiversal has ruined the Weather Channel. Now it's just another attempt at entertainment.

I completely agree with that assessment. I still watch in the AM-- but not the HD version because the HD channel's version of Local on the 8s is not LOCAL-- but the SD version is still local.

Stephanie Abrams is a ditz who is a "star" in her own mind, pathetic....her dubbing of last weeks storm as "The Beast" which she made a point of including in virtually every sentence she uttered during her coverage of the event is a prime example, what a dope....I once witnessed her exclaiming about wind gust of 11mph....11mph! Holy shit my hair is out of place!....my hair is out of place!

My issue is that when I turn on the Weather Channel now a days, there is Storm Stories, Weather MD, Jersey Shore (Weather Bithches gone wild) or some other crap.. I just want the weather.

If by lately you mean the last decade, I agree.

Yep,
It sucks lately.
You get everything BUT the local weather.

For me it was useful last year, but no more.

The www.weather.com site is quite good though.

I agree with everyone that the weather channel has not only turned to craP because of NBC but it has lost its touch. I can't even get my local on the eights without some stupid storm story or something completely irrelevant to the dam weather. It's so agrivating and the hosts are terrible always getting caught up in a stupid cheesy ass joke or making dumb comments about what they ate this morning. I just want my old show back. Way to go NBC hats off to your terrible job at the weather. Also I can't stand Stephanie Abrams extremely annoying along with the rest of the new crew.

100% correct.I have watched TWC since its inception,now it is really sad.It is another Disc,History,AE channel,not worth a crap for weather.I wish I could get the Accu-weather channel who has Mark Mancuso as a meteorologist who used to be on TWC.
