  1. The channel goes dark on Sept. 30 NBCUniversal Will Unplug The Olympic Channel After Five-Year Linear TV Run
  2. Formal announcement from Disney that 9-1-1, American Housewife, and The Rookie will enter broadcast syndication this fall.
  3. Sook is confident that they'll own a broadcast network.
  4. There's been radio silence since the initial report in January, aside from Deadline saying last month that the deal is closing soon. I think the situation is still fluid. The moving to streaming scenario may have been an option that was discussed and the showrunner heard it through the grapevine. It could be that WBD sees the value in keeping the CW entity in-house and moves the branding and content to HBO Max. Nexstar gets sold a blank broadcast network infrastructure that they can brand and program how they see fit.
  5. The trades consistently report that Paramount and Warner will retain a minority stake in the network post-sale and continue to supply programming. Most of the shows that were killed off this season were tied into the old Netflix deal and thus The CW was unable to monetize the stacking rights for AVOD. That won't be the case for the new crop of shows. THR reports that Nexstar is particularly interested in that revenue.

  7. Assuming he's still there. What are the chances of Nexstar putting one of their execs at the helm?
  8. XFL has announced a new TV deal with Disney. Games will air across ABC, ESPN, and FX. XFL ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE MULTI-YEAR BROADCAST AGREEMENT WITH THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY AND ESPN
  9. According to Deadline, the pending sale to Nexstar is expected to close in the next few weeks. The CW also cleaned house earlier this week in preparation of the sale.
  10. I thought this was pretty nifty. As FLA/WSH went into OT, they put up the scoreboard for the preempted game that was forced to start on TruTV.
  11. Opening week ratings are in. The delayed game that aired on FS1 last night did 268k.
  12. The deal has closed. Say hello to the new multimedia behemoth.
  13. Schedules for playoffs and weeks 1-3:
