“The Drew Barrymore Show” has been renewed through the 2023-2024 season on the CBS Stations. “This season, ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ debuted a new reimagined half-hour format, which has been an undeniable success,” said Steve LoCascio, President of CBS Media Ventures. “Ratings have grown 70% year to year, and creatively, the show is better than ever.” CBS Stations anchor the show in major markets, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

CNN is reportedly considering more flexible formats for its 9p-11p timeslot, including a possible comedic news show with a host like Bill Maher or Trevor Noah, according to Semafor. Lending heft to the report is the success Fox News is having with its late-night satiric news show “Gutfeld!”, and CNN CEO Chris Licht’s tenure as executive producer of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Disney sent a letter to shareholders saying activist investor Nelson Peltz, who was denied a seat on its board, “does not understand Disney’s businesses and lacks the skills and experience to assist the board in delivering shareholder value in a rapidly shifting media ecosystem.” Billionaire Peltz, CEO of Trian Management, launched a bid for a board seat last week.

Nexstar Media Group is no longer allowing newscasts on its local TV stations to be streamed live for free.

NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders is retiring after 32 years at the network. “My wife, Deborah, has been an amazing supporter, but we kind of sat and said, ‘This might be the right time,’ because during the pandemic, we weren’t going anywhere as you all know, and we realized we do really good together all the time, so maybe that is what we should do now,” said Sanders on Today.

Don’t cry for fired Disney CEO Bob Chapek. For the company’s fiscal year ended October 1, Chapek’s pay package totaled $24.18 million, and he is eligible for severance payments worth over $20 million, according to a regulatory filing. Although Disney had extended Chapek’s contract for three years in 2022, the board determined in November that amid the “rapidly evolving industry” and economic climate, Chapek was “no longer the right person” for the CEO job, and replaced him with his predecessor, Bob Iger.

Paramount has updated the key art for season two of “Mayor of Kingstown,” toning down the appearance of bloody injuries to the face of series star Jeremy Renner. The actor was hospitalized on January 1 after a snowplow accident that left him in critical condition. Renner is now recovering at home.
