I work for a local station as a motion graphic artist and I create these bugs fairly often and yes After Effects is the most common tool used. Maya is also used. AE is a good tool for any text animation like what you see on 20/20. It is considered the industry standard for motion graphics. There are other tools (e.g. combustion) but AE is the most commonly used.
