WGN pulls upset in the mornings

The CW may be tanking, but Tribune’s WGN-TV is thriving – its morning show ranked number one in the daypart (second item), besting ABC-owned WLS-TV in the recently concluded February book from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. – though it tied WLS at 6 a.m.

Meanwhile, not even the presence of American Idol and the Super Bowl has helped Fox-owned WFLD’s Good Day Chicago. Why would the station change the name of the show back to what it was when it launched as a ratings-deprived program in 1993? As a result, those ratings are back in the basement.
