IN THE NEWS

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang has joined CNN as a political commentator. The former Democratic presidential candidate, who drew followers known as the Yang Gang during his campaign, ended his run last week. “I’m excited to join @CNN to help shed light on the election and the candidates’ experiences. Learned a lot these past months and am glad to contribute to the public discussion,” Yang tweeted on Wednesday.

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell and CBS This Morning host Gayle King will anchor the February 25 Democratic candidate debate in South Carolina. Margaret Brennan, Major Garrett and Bill Whitaker will help question the presidential hopefuls. Twitter is a debate partner; the Congressional Black Caucus Institute will co-host. The event will be simulcast on BET.

A merger with DirecTV is “inevitable,” said Dish Network head Charlie Ergen during Dish’s 4Q19 earning call on Wednesday, “because growth in TV is not coming from linear.” On the bright-ish side, Dish reported a decrease in net pay-TV subscribers of 194,000 in 4Q19, to about 12 million, versus a year-ago loss of 334,000. Net income for DirecTV rose to $389 million, up from $337 million.With the proliferation of streaming services, Sling TV had a subscriber loss for the first time, dipping from 2.69 million subs in 3Q19 to 2.59 million at the end of the year.

Viewership declines have accelerated, to start 2020 with Person 2+ PUT (persons using television) trending down 7.5% quarter-to-date vs. -6.3% in 4Q19, and -7.0% a year ago, wrote UBS analyst John C. Hodulik in an investor note. “If the trend holds, it would represent the largest quarterly decline for TV viewership in our data set,” added Hodulik. “Trends have worsened across most age demos with persons 25-34 now falling -17% vs. low double-digit declines throughout 2019. The persons 55+ demo continues to trend down ~2%, similar to 2019 (the first year of declining ratings for the demo).”

Discovery, Inc. is developing a consumer products program inspired by adventurer Coyote Peterson, YouTube star and host of Animal Planet’s Coyote Peterson: Brave the Wild. Discovery will represent Peterson across all licensing categories and develop a consumer products program that extends his mission to engage the next generation of animal enthusiasts. “Coyote Peterson is a great example of Discovery talent whose personality transcends the screen and connects deeply with our passionate fans around the world,” said Carolann Dunn, VP, Consumer Products, Discovery, Inc. “Animal Planet serves animal lovers of all ages, and with Coyote we are thrilled to be able to connect with that younger audience through a line of fun, innovative and inspirational toys.”

The Paley Center for Media has moved out of its Beverly Hills location and into new offices in Century City. The Beverly Hills Public Library will house the center’s TV and radio archives, under a two-year lease. Three employees were let go as part of the relocation, reports Variety. “We are so proud to announce the Beverly Hills Public Library as the new home of the Paley Archive, and are incredibly grateful to the city of Beverly Hills for recognizing the historical and educational value of the Paley Archive,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President and CEO.

Nieves, President and CEO of HITN.

TECH TALK

OTT ad fraud is projected to cost marketers $4 billion globally this year, projects cybersecurity company CHEQ. OTT spend will reach $23.8 billion in 2020, says the report, with ad fraud levels reaching 17%. The most common OTT ad frauds involve networks of bots generating massive amounts of fraudulent traffic. “Marketing budgets are steadily flowing to OTT, offering a mouthwatering proposition of brands being able to reach consumers on their screens with relevant messages at the right time,” said Guy Tytunovich, founder and CEO fo CHEQ. “However, as with other nascent markets online, ad fraud and fakery follow, and every day we are seeing new and sophisticated attacks attacking the OTT ecosystem. The challenges of ad fraud must be tackled if we are to create trust, transparency and efficiency in this fast-growing market.”

Another report focused on fraud showed 90% of influencers reach less than half of their audience and 30% of influencers showed fraud levels for engagement purchasing in 4Q19 campaigns, according to research from Sylo that analyzed over 5000 influencers’ social media accounts. Among the highlights of the report, “Growing Levels of Influencer Fraud Swindling Ad Dollars”: Metrics produced through scraping, such as “Fake Followers” or “Bot Percentages,” were not indicative of influencer fraud activity, and were inaccurate by as much as 129%; “Fake Follower” rate of 23% was within the normal range, implying that a typical influencer purchases nearly a quarter of their audience; and influencer network (scraped) engagement and impressions were off by an average of 55% and 48 %, respectively, from verified data.

Although 5G technology for consumers isn’t likely to reach mass adoption until 2022, it holds “limitless” potential for brands to connect with customers in new and innovative ways, says John Petrocelli, CEO of Bulldog Digital Media. “We’ll be able to drive major improvements in mobile content consumption, creation, and engagement. Livestreaming provides an ideal opportunity to focus on all three of these concepts,” he says in Cynsiders. For more, go here.

STREAMING SNIPPETS

DVD rental company Redbox is diving into the streaming TV market. Redbox Free Live TV features nearly 30 channels of movies and episodic content, including three exclusive Redbox-branded channels: Redbox Comedy, action/adventure-oriented Redbox Rush and Redbox Spotlight, with curated titles. Lionsgate is a “key strategic launch partner for programming content,” said Redbox.

CBS Television Stations and CBS Interactive have launched CBSN Denver, the seventh of ViacomCBS’ 13 local direct-to-consumer streaming news services in major markets. CBSN Denver features anchored programming, breaking news in the region, as well as a library of local news content for on-demand viewing. “The response to our first six launches is exceeding our expectations, and we look forward to seeing this trend continue in Denver and the six other markets where we will be rolling out these OTT services in the near future.” said Peter Dunn, President, CBS Television Stations.

CASTING

RATINGS

 

Univision’s Saturday night live coverage of the Liga MX matchup drew 1.0 million total viewers 2+, 563,000 A18-49 and 217,000 A18-34, making it the No. 1 and No. 2 program on broadcast television on Saturday night in the respective 18-34 and 18-49 demos.

UniMás’ Enamorándonos averaged its highest-rated weekly performance since its premiere with week-to-week audience gains among Total Viewers 2+ (+3% to 759,000), marking the fourth consecutive week of audience growth.
