The news is something I just do not watch.  It is a bunch of biased crap or it's some stupid fluff piece that's supposed to be cute.  Last night I wanted to see the weather for the morning ride in, so as the commercial break comes up they tell us what's next.  Well two commercials into the break, the news guys pops on to remind us of what is coming on after the next commercial.  I mean jebus, wtf is so important that you need to interrupt your own commercial to remind us?  This was an actual plug for the very program we are already watching.  We have some real big brainers running the show I guess.
was feeling nostalgic

"Next" means sometime in the next segment.  "Coming up" means sometime in the next hour.
 
The local 10pm news I watch has now divided the weather portion of the show into 4 segments, starting at around 10:10, and ending (with the actual forecast) at around 10:50.  In between, there are teasers.
 
I just watch the local news for the killings.

That's why they place so much emphasis on those stories.
 
Because they know it gets people to watch more.
 
And the more people watch, the more advertising they can sell at higher rates.
 
And "make a killing" of their own.
 
"If it bleeds, it leads" as they say.
