The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Maybe it's just inertia

Or someone's sleeping in the Department of Titles and Screen Displays at ABC. Whatever the explanation, Matt Deatherage noticed this:

As of tonight, at least, their nightly newscast is still called ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.

"Tonight" being last night, when he posted it.

Since ABC hasn't named a permanent replacement yet, maybe they're holding off in anticipation of the actual appointment. But it's going to sound awkward, maybe worse, until then.

I saw a story where ABC was not going to re-name it until the named a permanent replacement.
