Netflix is reviving "Full House." CBS46 has created what you might call the latest version of "Clean House."

I spoke too soon a few days back when I said it appeared CBS46 had finished revamping its anchor lineup, which meant replacing everyone but Tracye Hutchins and Scott Light. CBS46 this past week let go of Light after 18 months, leaving Hutchins as the sole weekday anchor survivor since new management arrived last fall.

News director Larry Perrret declined to comment, but I hear a replacement for Light is coming soon so the musical chairs may finally be coming to an end.

Light, who last worked at a Phoenix TV station, was one of the last major hires of the previous regime.

My original story about Light's hiring.

For those of you who are trying to keep count, here are the recent anchor changes:

Mornings: Michelle Burdo out, Bobby Kaple from L.A. and Gloria Neal from Denver in.

Mid-days: Jocelyn McConnell out, Kim Passoth from Oklahoma City in

Evenings: Stephany Fisher, Scott Light out; Sharon Reed from St. Louis, plus another person soon, in

Sports: Larry Smith out, Fred Kalil in

Meteorologist: Markina Brown out, Jim Kosek in
