  1. How do WCIU's ratings compare to WPWR?
  2. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/234122/weigels-wciu-chicago-adds-cw-affiliation/
  3. Page Six TV is done. Signs point towards Disney folding 20th Television. https://deadline.com/2019/04/page-six-tv-syndicated-pop-culture-show-end-second-season-1202589350/
  4. Welp, the AAF just folded. It's up to you now, Vince.
  5. Fox Corporation celebrates their first day with a sizzle reel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJdPVkTGV2k
  6. Disney's website has been updated to reflect their ownership of the Fox assets: https://www.thewaltdisneycompany.com/about/#our-businesses It's really weird seeing FX grouped in with Disney Channel.
  7. I gotta say, I'm surprised that Fox is taking a pass. Feels like yesterday when they announced the spin-offs they were buying from Sinclair. More stations was the New Fox game plan. And now they're like... no thanks, more retrans please. Hello Amazon?
  8. All of the Time Warner management is now history. Bewkes, Martin (Turner), Plepler (HBO) and now Tsujihara (Warner Bros.) The phone company's in charge now.
  9. CBS is adding two more games to their broadcast network. https://awfulannouncing.com/cbs/cbs-is-adding-two-more-aaf-games-to-its-broadcast-network-from-cbs-sports-network.html
  10. MyNet will probably be sticking around. https://deadline.com/2019/02/mynetworktv-10-years-after-strategic-pivot-is-a-quiet-but-steady-engine-for-fox-1202566142/
  11. MNF could shift to ABC. https://awfulannouncing.com/espn/there-are-further-rumblings-that-espn-may-shift-nfl-games-to-abc-in-the-next-round-of-tv-rights-negotiations.html
  12. 2 weeks in and nearly bankrupt. https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/02/19/aaf-money-problems-tom-dundon-investment
  13. Tonight, the AAF launches with their inaugural game on CBS. Regular season games will air on CBS Sports Network, NFL Network, TNT, and B/R Live. The championship game will air on CBS. Full season schedule: https://aaf.com/nfl-network-to-televise-19-alliance-of-american-football Quick rundown on rule differences vs. the NFL: https://aaf.com/notable-rule-differences-for-the-alliances-inaugural Who ya got? For me, it's the Commanders.
  14. At launch, MyNet offered an inventory split that was favorable to affiliates and did not ask for reverse comp. I believe it was nine minutes per hour for the station, Fox sold the other five (This led to Sinclair aligning with MyNet during the arms race of summer 2006...CW offered only three minutes in prime time plus reverse comp). I believe now with their programming service model, they offer half the inventory to the studio of whatever show they're airing and the other half to the station. They allegedly don't pay for the shows... it's all barter. There's another interesting question... MyNet itself is structured as a joint venture between 20th TV and FTS. 20th is going to Disney. What does that mean for MyNet?
  15. The final bidders are Tegna, Hearst, and Scripps. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/10/tegna-hearst-and-ew-scripps-plan-january-bids-for-cox-tv-stations.html
