  1. Here he is dropping a tease about potentially pursuing sports rights (0:49):
  2. This tidbit stood out to me: How the hell?
  3. While the acquisition isn't formally closed yet, Nexstar is immediately assuming corporate oversight of The CW. Nexstar plans to spend $2 billion a year on programming for the network, and will target an older demographic.
  4. Speaking of which, I haven't heard a peep out of them regarding their fall schedule yet.
  5. SN1 is now OTA in DFW. Spectrum News 1 to broadcast over-the-air on KAZD-TV
  6. The channel goes dark on Sept. 30 NBCUniversal Will Unplug The Olympic Channel After Five-Year Linear TV Run
  7. Formal announcement from Disney that 9-1-1, American Housewife, and The Rookie will enter broadcast syndication this fall.
  8. Sook is confident that they'll own a broadcast network.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. The CW essentially functions as a hybrid linear network/AVOD service. Putting a paywall on their content would be a mistake.
  12. Assuming he's still there. What are the chances of Nexstar putting one of their execs at the helm?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Opening week ratings are in. The delayed game that aired on FS1 last night did 268k.
  17. The deal has closed. Say hello to the new multimedia behemoth.
  18. Schedules for playoffs and weeks 1-3:
  19. Sinclair has sold ROH to the owner of AEW. https://twitter.com/TonyKhan/status/1499188969061470208
  20. Paramount Global, to be exact. ViacomCBS To Rebrand As Paramount Global
  21. Fox and NBC will simulcast the opening game. NBC And Fox Will Both Air USFL Opener In April, In First TV Network Sports Simulcast Since 1967
  22. The linked THR article from above says NewsNation execs are "salivating" at the chance of putting news on The CW, so get used to the idea of it bud.
  23. Looks like a combination of streaming and corporate housekeeping led to the 'For Sale' sign hanging on the network. Some interesting information revealed about the network's financials: Source: In Streaming Era, CW Network’s Value to Its Owners Has Diminished
