Highlights from ABC’s Winter TCA presentation: Young Frankenstein Live! (wt) will debut in the fall, based on the stage version of the Mel Brooks comedy classic. Brooks, who wrote and directed the 1974 film and 2007 Broadway adaptation, will produce…The series farewell of Modern Family is set for Wednesday, April 8. Fan votes will decide which episodes run in a March 11 Modern Family binge… How to Get Away With Murder returns for its final six episodes on Thursday, April 2…The Conners will air live on Tuesday, February 11, the night of the New Hampshire primary, with ABC News coverage of the primary incorporated into the story in real time as results roll in… Shark Tank returns to Friday nights beginning February 28, and American Housewife moves to Wednesdays at 9p starting on April 15… and The Emmy Awards have a date: Sunday, September 20.

The 2020 Academy Awards will once again go host-less, announced Karey Burke, ABC entertainment president, at TCA – but she promised “huge entertainment value, big musical numbers, and star power.” Last year’s show was also without a host, after Kevin Hart withdrew amid controversy over old tweets, and the show saw an uptick in ratings versus the year prior.

Barry Diller’s IAC/InterActive Corp. is selling CH Media, parent of College Humor, to CH chief creative officer Sam Reich in a deal that is costing about 100 jobs. “IAC, our parent company, has made the difficult decision to no longer finance us,” Reich said. “While we were on the way to becoming profitable, we were nonetheless losing money – and I myself have no money to be able to lose.” Said IAC, which has owned CollegeHumor since 2006, “Sam was the best choice to acquire CH Media and define its next chapter. The decision places CH Media with an owner who is beloved by fans, passio nate about the business and sees a future we believe in.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Abby Phillip will be joined by the Des Moines Register’s Brianne Pfannenstiel to moderate the January 14 Democratic debate, the final debate before the Iowa caucuses on February 3. Candidates qualifying so far are Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. (Which candidate would you most like to see added to the roster? Let us know in the Cynopsis poll.)

Houses were just the beginning – HGTV is now looking for a whole town to make over. Inspired by the success of its series Home Town, which helped transform Laurel, Mississippi, the net is asking fans to submit a bid to have their own small towns (population less than 40,000) featured in upcoming event series, Home Town Takeover, slated to premiere in 2021. “This is a big one,” said Home Town co-host Erin Napier. “HGTV has never, ever taken on a whole town renovation and restoration project and we’re so proud and excited to be leading the team that will get it done.”

NowThis announced a new division, “NowThis Impact,” dedicated to covering global challenges important to a young audience. “Our audience is deeply passionate and incredibly eager to engage on the issues that matter most to them,” said Athan Stephanopoulos, President of NowThis. “They’ve made it crystal clear that they are looking for new ways to not only learn more about the challenges dominating the world around them, but how they can get involved and take action themselves.”

See who’s leading the charge in industry excellence. Over 45 companies are being represented at the Cynopsis Best Of The Best Awards Luncheon, taking place on February 6th in NYC. This is your chance to raise a glass to the finalists, make connections and take part in the ultimate celebration of media’s game changers. This year’s awards luncheon will include a spotlight on Cynopsis’ Rising Star honorees. Seating is limited, and last year’s luncheon sold out quickly, so reserve your spot today.

Martha MacCallum inked a new multi-year deal with Fox News Channel, where she will continue as anchor of The Story with Martha MacCallum and co-anchor of the network’s election and special event political coverage alongside Bret Baier.

NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker will succeed Sheinelle Jones as co-host of Weekend Today, with Peter Alexander. Jones announced last month she was leaving the show to spend more time with her family.

Wireless speaker maker Sonos is suing Google, seeking a ban on Google speakers, smartphones and laptops in the US, as well as financial compensation. “Google has been blatantly and knowingly copying our patented technology in creating its audio products,” said Sonos CEO Patrick Spence. Sonos alleges Chromecast Audio and Google Home speakers, Nest Mini, Nest Hub, Nest Hub Max, Nest Wifi Point, Pixel phones, Pixel Slate Tablet and Pixelbook laptop all infringe on its patents.

It’s time to let media’s emerging talent know we’ve got their back…

thirtysomething(else), a sequel to 1987-1991 series thirtysomething, landed a pilot pickup from ABC. The show will follow the grown-up children of the original cast, reprised by Ken Olin, Mel Harris, Timothy Busfield, and Patty Wettig.

ABC also picked up The Brides to pilot. Vampire drama comes from executive producer/writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale), Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

More fun and games at ABC: The net is bringing back Supermarket Sweep, hosted and executive produced by SNL standout Leslie Jones, and a new version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Produced by Fremantle, Supermarket Sweep follows three teams of two as they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills. “I’ve always dreamed of being on Supermarket Sweep,” said Jones. “Seriously, I tried out for the show years ago; and after getting turned away, I knew I’d have to take matters into my own hands. Being able to bring the iconic game show back to life on ABC is my ultimate redemption story!” The original format aired on ABC from 1965-1967 and went on to become adapted in 13 international territories. Production on the 10-episode order is set to begin this spring. Millionaire will feature celebrities playing for charity, and an interactive game viewers can play from home, starting Wednesday, April 8.

A series based on The Last of the Mohicans is in development at HBO Max. Written by Joji Fukunaga (True Detective) and Nick Osborne (Remember Me) and directed by Nicole Kassell (Watchmen), the series will be a retelling of James Fenimore Cooper’s historical novel.

Amazon Prime Video Spain is at work on a reboot of El Internado (The Boarding School). Eight-part El Internado: Las Cumbres will be set in an isolated school for problem children. The original series’ creator, Laura Belloso, will serve as executive producer alongside Laura Fernandez Espeso and Javier Pons of Mediapro, and Ignacio Corrales and Sonia Martinez from Atresmedia Studios.

Quibi announced the development of The Hot Drop, a new take on the dating genre. At the start of each week, Quibi will drop a profile of an eligible single, and the audience can submit videos vying for the possibility to join the single on an adventure via the Quibi app. That same week, Quibi will reveal the top three candidates; then the Quibi community will determine who goes on the date. ITV America’s Sirens Media and ITV Studios Entertainment are producing.

Netflix gave a 10-episode order to Love Is Blind, a dating show hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey. Unscripted series from Kinetic Content (Married at First Sight), following singles who want to meet the person they’ll spend the rest of their lives with without having seen them, premieres February 13.

NBCUniversal announced its new go-to-market offering, One Platform, which will offer linear and digital advertising buys across all platforms on local, national and global levels. “We know that viewers do not differentiate content by network, time or screen; instead, our fans see NBCUniversal as one giant home to the best stories, so that’s the mindset we’ll go to market with in 2020,” said Linda Yaccarino, Chairman, Advertising and Partnerships, NBCUniversal. “With One Platform, we’re following our viewers’ lead. Rather than rejecting the changes in consumer behavior, we’re reflecting it.” The first version of the tool will be available for this year’s Upfronts, with a final version expected to be complete in three years. For details, go here.

Software platform DoubleVerify announced the launch of Authentic Performance, a data solution to provide predictive data expected to drive campaign performance. “Current tools are either fast but simplistic – with metrics like viewability and click-through rate (CTR); or they’re sophisticated but slow – with data reported post-campaign,” said Wayne Gattinella, CEO of DoubleVerify. “Authentic Performance is designed to provide predictive data that are correlated with digital advertising effectiveness, in real time – giving global brands clarity and confidence in their digital investment.”

Let the games begin! Just hours after news broke that Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg was spending $10 million on a Super Bowl ad, came word that President Trump would be doing the same. “President Trump made the unprecedented decision to keep the campaign open following his first election, which allows us to do things like buying a Super Bowl ad,” said Tim Murtaugh, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, in the NY Times. “We got in early, which gave us prime ad position early in the game.” The Super Bowl is one day before the Democratic caucuses in Iowa.

TVSquared and RTL AdConnect have partnered to provide RTL AdConnect’s global advertisers with proof of performance across more than 150 TV channels and BVOD platforms throughout Europe. This marks the first time a media owner has launched a European TV attribution initiative for advertisers.
