CBS 11 KTVT DFW replaces 6pm newscast with 'Jeopardy'


CBS News Texas

CBS 11 KTVT Dallas-Fort Worth is replacing its "CBS News Texas at 6:00pm" newscast with 'Jeopardy' starting Monday, September 11, 2023 according to an ad running on the station.

As you might imagine, when an owned and operated network station drops a 6pm newscast in a major market, the emails start rolling in. 

One viewer emailed me saying, "Shocked is the only way to describe it."

So for weekday afternoon/evening news at KTVT you will soon have:

CBS News Texas at 4:00pm

CBS News Texas at 5:00pm

CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell

CBS News Texas at 10:00 PM New

The 6pm hour will be all game shows as 'Jeopardy' is scheduled ahead of 'Wheel of Fortune' which already airs at 6:30pm.

If you can wait until 7pm, then CBS-owned sister station TXA-21 KTXA will debut "CBS News Texas at 7:00pm" starting on 9-11-23.

Currently, KTXA airs the 9pm newscast "CBS News Texas Now" produced through its Innovation Lab, but this show goes away on Sept. 11, replaced by "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

Meanwhile, down I-45, a Houston station is adding TV newscasts the same day.
