We love KTLA. Our night wouldn't be complete without one of Hal "The Fish Man" Fishman's commentaries, the annoying, well-endowed weather girl trying her best to present the weather without tipping forward or sports reporting that's on par with the local college station's, but tonight they teased a video for the entirety of their broadcast that we'd seen days ago.

We know that the old media is struggling to put fresh faces and rock music behind their dry, over-produced broadcasts, but when they play this video as their teaser all evening, not only does this scream "slow news day" but when they tell us to not try this activity at home it makes us sad for the state of this slowly dying media.

PS - Why are they getting a star on the walk of fame?
