IN THE NEWS
Discovery, Inc. and Omnicom Media Group announced a new data trial pilot that aims to offer new currencies to advertisers this Upfront season. “It is vital that we work with our clients who believe they have an idea that might improve upon the current status quo in measurement,” said Jon Steinlauf, Chief US Ad Sales Officer, Discovery. “This pilot program with OMG ensures our partners can test best-of-breed measurement solutions, as well as trial new linear TV currencies, which will be an important first step towards transitioning to an eventual accredited person-based cross-platform currency.” The trial is currently in progress across multiple advertiser categories and evaluates linear delivery for OMG clients via several measurement services. Comscore and VideoAmp will serve as the video measurement services for the initial set of advertisers, which include AT&T and State Farm.
YouTube, a founding participant in the IAB’s NewFronts, is moving its Brandcast event to May 17, smack in the middle of broadcast TV’s upfront week in NYC. Why the shift? “We feel this is the right time to help our customers bridge the gap between linear TV and digital, which is why YouTube will have a presence at both events this year,” said the company in a blog post. As principal sponsor, YouTube will still have a presence at NewFronts, including a set of panels on May 2.
After three seasons on CBS, dating format “Love Island” is making a move. Following what it described as a “highly competitive situation,” Peacock gave the series, from ITV America, a two-season, 80 episode order, promising “naughtier games and steamier challenges” this summer. “’Love Island’ is a highly addictive dating format that is primed for a streaming service like Peacock where we can push boundaries and bring viewers steamy and dramatic twists,” said Jenny Groom, EVP Entertainment Unscripted Content and NBC TV and Streaming. “The series took pop culture by storm after the UK format found fans across the world, and we are thrilled to be able to bring an all-new version to Peacock this summer anchoring our unscripted slate.”
What prompted ITV America to move their reality romance series? “This really is an unprecedented deal for an unscripted brand,” said ITV America CEO David George. “Peacock and NBCU are the perfect home for Love Island because of their strategy to grow the show, utilizing the greater NBCU television portfolio and other platforms to help propel the series. That dedication, coupled with a two-season commitment on Peacock, sealed the deal. We’re incredibly excited to elevate the show through a bold new collaboration.”

Count the Motion Pictures Editors Guild among the groups expressing deep disappointment at being left out of the live broadcast of the Oscars. “We understand the Academy’s desire to make a more arresting show, but this move renders the ‘invisible art’ of editing even less visible,” read a statement from MPEG President Alan Heim. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday it is cutting the presentation of awards for film editing, production design, sound, makeup and hairstyling, music (original score) and the three short film awards from the live telecast. Instead, the eight awards will be presented ahead of ABC’s live ceremony on March 27, with edited speeches inserted into the live show. “When deciding how to produce the Oscars, we recognize it’s a live event television show and we must prioritize the television audience to increase viewer engagement and keep the show vital, kinetic, and relevant,” Academy President David Rubin wrote to members. “This has been an important focus of discussion for quite some time.”

As a result of these four, separate, multi-year agreements, Canoe will be providing enablement and ongoing campaign service assurance across its national addressable TV advertising footprint, which currently consists of Charter, Comcast and Cox enabled households. “Our programming partners have placed a big bet on addressable TV,” David Porter, SVP, GM, Addressable Advertising, Canoe, tells Cynopsis. “Not only have they signed up for long-term commercial deals through Canoe, but they are also investing significant resources in their own tech enablement, operations and sales teams. All of this creates scale for brands wanting both the efficacy of TV and the precision of targeting.”
Audiences that watch travel content on social video are driving ecommerce activity across product categories, including those with little to do with travel, according to a new Tubular Labs report. While it’s little surprise that mountain bikes account for 29% of product category shopping on Amazon among travel content audiences, investing books (31%) and noodle soups (30%) beat that number. Tubular also labeled three travel mindsets: The narrator, who might be reached by VR and gaming tech; the seeker, who requires authenticity; and the nomad, who values the ethical well-being of brands. “Whether you’re a brand, agencies of media companies considering how to engage with these three travel mindsets across social video, remember the values, interests, and behaviors of these audiences,” advises the report.
Spectus, a solution for the responsible analysis of location data, has officially launched. Spectus was created by the leadership team at Cuebiq to grow the geospatial-focused Data Cleanroom offering (formerly known as Cuebiq Workbench). Cuebiq will remain as an ad tech business solely focused on Media Measurement and Audience Targeting, and become a channel partner of Spectus. “Over the last three years, there has been a significant increase in adoption of geospatial analytics,” said Antonio Tomarchio, Founder and CEO of Spectus. “The pandemic accelerated this increased demand as many organizations desperately needed visibility into different trends across the nation with completely heterogenous local pandemic policies. And while the overall mobility and geospatial market is estimated to grow to $32 billion by 2027, it faces hurdles around speed to market, risk mitigation, and cost control that are preventing it from reaching its full potential.”

The re-titled “Family Feud-Olym” (5.7 Live+SD national Nielsen rating, down 2% from the week before) was the top rated game show and one the few programs of any type to avoid a major tumble. “Jeopardy-Olym” (5.5, down 13%) was next, followed by “Wheel of Fortune-Olym” (5.0, down 14%). “Inside Edition-Olym” (2.0, down 20%) led the heavily-preempted magazines, while top talkers were “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “The Dr. Phil Show” (both 1.6, down 11%).
