  1. New info. Birmingham is being considered as a host city for all the games. NBC is potentially involved as a broadcast partner. https://www.wvtm13.com/article/birmingham-bjcc-officials-discussing-playing-all-united-states-football-league-games-in-the-city/37928711
  2. Fox has closed on their acquisition of TMZ from WarnerMedia. https://deadline.com/2021/09/fox-tmz-acquisition-warnermedia-closes-harvey-levin-1234832123/
  3. WADL has snagged MyNetworkTV away from WMYD. https://www.nexttv.com/news/wadl-gets-detroits-mynetworktv-affiliation
  4. https://www.foxsports.com/presspass/latest-news/2021/06/03/united-states-football-league-returns-2022
  5. Scripted programming on Saturdays is being eyed for 2022.
  6. The Deadline article indicates that the timeslot swap likely helped smooth things over. I'm a little surprised that Nexstar didn't take the opportunity to put CW back on WGN-TV. They don't have much going for them in primetime since losing their sports rights.
  7. WarnerDiscovery already being set up for a sale? Man, imagine if they went full circle and merged with NBCUniversal if/when Comcast jettisons it.
  8. The original report from Bloomberg: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-05-16/at-t-is-said-in-talks-to-combine-content-assets-with-discovery-kor6r2uj?srnd=premium From the sound of that, AT&T will spin-off WarnerMedia into a separate entity that will merge with Discovery Inc. AT&T/WarnerMedia previously talked merger with NBCUniversal. What a mess of spaghetti that would've been.
  9. https://deadline.com/2021/05/the-cw-primetime-schedule-saturday-weekday-afternoon-block-returned-affiliates-1234755841/
  10. Good interview with Perry Sook: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKQ46xoLqVo
  11. https://www.foxsports.com/presspass/latest-news/2021/04/14/spring-league-makes-broadcast-television-debut-saturday-may-8-fox Fox is going all in with this league. They previously aired the 2020 season on FS1. In that agreement, Fox secured an option to acquire a minority stake in TSL. For the 2021 season, TSL is expanding and Fox will give them a big push with games airing on broadcast. Schedule in the link above.
  12. CBSN recently went OTA in Dallas-Ft. Worth, airing on KTXA's .2 subchannel. Whether this was a quick fix for losing MeTV or part of a larger plan for CBSN to expand to OTA, I don't know.
  13. Amid preparations for a 2022 season, a potential 'partnership' with the CFL is being discussed. https://www.si.com/xfl/2021/03/10/cfl-xfl-discuss-potential-partnership
  14. Important to note that the NHL.TV streaming package is moving wholesale to ESPN+. With this deal, Disney/ESPN becomes the 'A' rights holder to the NHL. NBCU and Fox are in contention for the remaining rights. I'd wager that NBCU will keep their slice of it, aiming to bolster Peacock and USA Network.
  15. TNF will be mostly exclusive to Prime. NFLN will only air a few games. https://awfulannouncing.com/nfl/more-thursday-night-football-games-will-reportedly-be-amazon-exclusive-in-new-round-of-tv-deals.html
