IN THE NEWS

CBS will spend less on pilots this year. That’s the word from ViacomCBS president/CEO Bob Bakish, who said during yesterday’s Q4 investor call the company feels “very good about where the network is and therefore are able to be more prudent.” Thus far CBS has picked up six drama and seven comedy pilots this year, including a straight-to-series order for The Lincoln Lawyer, Chuck Lorre-produced comedy United States of Al, The Silence of the Lambs sequel Clarice and Patrick Dempsey-fronted political drama Ways & Means. This year’s tally is down from seven drama and nine comedy pilots last year.

ViacomCBS shares plunged nearly 15 percent yesterday immediately after the company’s quarterly analyst call, reflecting unease over the company’s Q4 numbers and Bakish’s turnaround plans. In what Bakish categorized as a “transitional” period due to the merger, ViacomCBS reported a net loss from continuing operations of $273 million, down from a profit of $884 million in Q4 2018, when Viacom and CBS were separate companies. Revenue dipped 3 percent to a combined $6.9 billion. The company said integration is moving swiftly, and it sees cost savings at $750 million, up from $500 million it anticipated at the time of the merger. In specific Q$ numbers, revenue at cable networks declined 2 percent, while television entertainment ad sales dipped 5 percent to $1.7 billion, affiliate fees rose 27 percent to $682 million and content licensing revenue dipped 9 percent to $715 million.

Ad Tech Innovators, Corporate Visionaries, Directors Who Do It All, Game Changing On Air, Talent, Industry Leaders, Innovators & Disruptors, Local & National News Ambassadors are just a handful of the categories lined up for the 2nd Annual Cynopsis Top Women in Media Awards. View all categories here and nominate yourself or a colleague before April 16th.

YouTube TV will add WarnerMedia’s HBO, HBO Max and Cinemax content as part of an expanded distribution relationship. YouTube TV already carries WarnerMedia networks TBS, TNT, truTV, CNN, HLN, Turner Classic Movies, Adult Swim and Cartoon Network. Linear and on-demand HBO and Cinemax content will debut on YouTube TV this spring.

In more ViacomCBS synergy, Showtime sister network Showcase this summer will rebrand as SHO*BET, and relaunch with scripted content from both Showtime and BET. “We see this as a compelling value creation play that will allow us to benefit from the growing demand for premium, African-American content across platforms,” Bakish said during yesterday’s call.

BET Networks announced #ReclaimYourVote, a campaign in partnership with the National Urban League and other national organizations aimed at increasing the participation of blacks in the 2020 Census and the 2020 Presidential election. Campaign will kick off with spots starting tomorrow (February 22) during the 51st NAACP Image Awards airing live at 8p on BET.

The film business was unprepared for the tremendous changes that Netflix and others brought to the industry over the past decade or so, says Kevin Hill, Founder/CEO of VuPulse, a digital advertising platform, adding that now, “It’s time for the movie industry to finally bite the bullet and embrace change. Collaboration between the digital video/streaming world and old-school, traditional movie business has already begun and it’s time to stop fighting it. The efficiencies for cross-promotional benefits lie ahead and the hide tide will definitely lift all boats.” Hear more from Hill in Cynsiders.

Fixer to Fabulous will get a second season on HGTV, after attracting more than 17.9 million viewers during season 1. The network ordered 13 new eps of the series, which stars husband and wife duo Dave and Jenny Marrs, for a premiere in fall 2020.

Cart abandonment, it’s a thing: The average conversion rate for an online store is 2.2 percent, according to a new study from website analytics firm Oribi on ecommerce shopping trends in 2019. While 11 percent of all visitors add items to their carts, of these, only 39 percent proceed to checkout, with 48 percent of that group completing a purchase, according to the study, which analyzed the data of 5.2 million visitors, buying 22,459 products in 204 online shops, between October and December 2019.
