 IN THE NEWS

Facebook is testing video ads in select users’ newsfeeds on Thursday with teasers for the movie Divergent. The social network behemoth is moving cautiously so as not to alienate users (the ad won’t be heard unless it’s clicked on), but the move inches it closer the $66 billion TV ad market. “Marketers will be able to use this new format to tell their stories to a large number of people on Facebook in a short amount of time,” said a Tuesday Facebook blog post.

Media companies need to develop closer relationships with viewers, according to a new report from EY that points to six trends driving the future of television.

The Weather Channel is taking advantage of uncertainty about the biggest sporting and television event of the year being held outdoors in (possibly) snowy New Jersey  including offering ad packages like The Touchdown Partnership. “Once the teams are chosen, the main story around the Super Bowl will be the weather and how it will impact the game,” Eric Hadley, SVP, sales strategy and marketing for The Weather Company tells Cynopsis. “Everyone will be checking the weather to see how the game and players will be affected. It’s the next best way for advertisers to get into the experience beyond advertising during the game itself.”

As part of an effort to broaden its programming, CNN has launched a new unit, CNN Film Presents, to purchase feature-length documentaries. “CNN Films Presents is a curated series of exceptional documentary feature films from the past for a new audience to discover,” said SVP of development and acquisitions for CNN Worldwide Vinnie Malhotra.

RATINGS

NBC‘s The Voice held a commanding lead Monday night with a 3.3/9 rating in A18-49, but was down nine-tenths from its year-ago performance finale episode. On CBS, 2 Broke Girls dropped four tenths to 2.3/7 in the demo to tie its series low, but Mike & Molly saw a two-tenths pop, to 2.2/6.

Fox wrapped up its fall season the week of December 9 up 9 percent in total viewers (6.1 million) and 4 percent in A18-49 (2.0/6).

The final two original movies in Hallmark‘s “Countdown to Christmas,” Hats Off to Christmas and Finding Christmas, were the number one and number two movies of the week. It’s the seventh straight week the net has held the top spot. Eleven of the 12 holiday movies placed among the top 10 basic cable programs of the week, boosting Hallmark Channel to rank #1 among HH, W25-54, and Total Viewers in weekend prime time with an average a 3.3 HH rating, an increase of 27% over last year’s 12 original premieres.

Modern Family hit season highs in syndication in HH (5.1), and demos including A18-34 (3.1) and A18-49 (3.1). The ABC comedy is the top syndicated program in A18-34, as well as in W18-49 (3.7) and W18-34 (3.8).

Katie Couric’s high-profile jump to Yahoo didn’t hurt her daytime show’s ratings. Katie equaled its highest HH rating since September (1.8) and matched its second-best rating this season in W25-54 (.9).

Disney and Nickelodeon are neck-and-neck in the cable race for Kids 2-11 on a Total Day basis. With two weeks remaining in 2013, Disney was winning by a nose, 936,000 to 934,000.
