NBC renewed Superstore for season six. “We’re thrilled that Superstore continues to speak to many important and topical issues while simultaneously being hilarious,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. The comedy is averaging a 1.1 rating in A18-49 and 3.8 million viewers in Live+7 Nielsens, and ranks as one of the net’s strongest digital performers, generating 50% of its Live+35 A18-49 average this season from digital sources.

Streaming made up 19% of TV viewing in OTT US homes during 4Q19, according to Nielsen’s new Total Audience Report. Netflix accounted for 31% of that streaming time, followed by 21% for YouTube, 12% for Hulu, 8% for Amazon, and 28% for other services. The report found 91% of respondents subscribed to a paid streaming service, with 30% subscribing to three or more. And there was no shortage of content – Nielsen found that in December 2019, US consumers had access to over 646,000 unique program titles, an increase of 10% from all of 2018.

A federal judge ruled in favor of the $26 billion merger between T-Mobile and Sprint, rejecting a lawsuit brought by states objecting to the deal. Unconvinced by economic theories that suggested the merger would harm service and pricing for users, the judge said he didn’t think the companies “would pursue anticompetitive behavior.” Sprint stock rose 70% on Tuesday morning, with T-Mobile shares enjoying a 12% lift. The current merger deal was proposed in April 2018, and has already won the approval of federal regulators.

As the race for the Democratic presidential nomination heats up, so is the traffic for fake news, according to DoubleVerify. In the states of Iowa and New Hampshire, home to the first caucus and primary events of the 2020 election, DV examined the usage of the “Inflammatory News & Politics” category by its clients in each state and found that the state of Iowa’s overall traffic rate on “Inflammatory News & Politics” content effectively doubled in the two weeks leading up to the caucuses. As of February 2, the fake news traffic rate for Iowa was 72% higher than the national average. Still, Iowa was second to New Hampshire, which had a rate 82% higher than the national average, the highest average fake and inflammatory news rate of any state since DoubleVerify started tracking it in October 2019.

TEGNA announced total company revenue was $694 million, up 8% year-over-year, driven by the impact of recent acquisitions, continued growth in subscription revenue, political advertising campaign spending beginning in earnest, and stronger advertising and marketing services revenue. Excluding political advertising, revenue grew 33% year-over-year. “TEGNA ended the year on a high note, driven by excellent performance across our business and strong momentum from our key growth drivers,” said Dave Lougee, President and CEO. “Our full-year 2019 results demonstrate the power of our five-pillar strategy for shareholder value creation as we execute and drive organic and inorganic growth across the business.”
