It beats the original plan to rename the much-loved local network after its much-loathed corporate overlord entirely, as TWC News. "The company really took notice after New Yorkers questioned the wisdom of a rebrand," said Canadian angel and/or anchor Pat Kiernan.

No one was going to call it that abomination anyway.
