IN THE NEWS

NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations announced the launch of “NBC Spot On,” a new advanced video advertising business offering local/regional CTV and OTT advertisers access to brand-safe long-form premium inventory that is fully owned or directly purchased. NBC Spot On can activate complex OTT/CTV campaigns across 100% of US DMAs and NBCUniversal’s sports regional networks, and deliver real-time business results. Shawn Makhijani will serve SVP of NBC Spot On and Business Development and Strategy for the owned stations division. For more, go here.

US consumers spend more time with TV than all other ad-supported platforms, according to preliminary results from the 2020 Media Comparisons Study from GfK in collaboration with TVB. The top medium for consumers was local broadcast TV, on-air and digital, found the study, with Adults 18+ spending 5 hours and 17 minutes with television daily; social media clocked in at 1 hour and 6 minutes. TV was also the top advertising medium influencing purchasing decisions – 63% higher than the number of those surveyed who cited social media. “Competition for consumers’ attention grows by the day, and yet television continues to stand tall as the medium with which people choose to spend most of their available time,” said Steve Lanzano, TVB President-CEO. “That continued dominance translates to dependable clout for advertisers across the marketing landscape. And at a time when accusations of ‘fake news’ fly from all corners of the media and social ecosystem, local TV in particular remains far and away the most trusted medium and source of information.”

ABC News yanked veteran correspondent David Wright from the air after he was recorded on a Project Veritas video describing himself a socialist, and saying, “Our bosses don’t see an upside in doing the job that we’re supposed to do, which is to speak truth to power and hold people to account.” Wright has been suspended, “and to avoid any possible appearance of bias, he will be reassigned away from political coverage when he returns,” said ABC News. Conservative organization Project Veritas is known for secretly recording media targets.

TEGNA and Gray Television struck a strategic partnership which has Gray acquiring a minority ownership interest in Premion, TEGNA’s CTV/OTT advertising business. Gray will serve as a reseller of Premion’s services across all of Gray’s 93 television markets. “Since our launch of Premion in 2016, we’ve quickly scaled the product and business to capitalize on the dramatic shift of audiences to streaming television. The Premion business exceeded $100 million in revenue in 2019, and we expect double-digit growth rates going forward,” said Dave Lougee, president and CEO, TEGNA. “We’re seeing tremendous growth opportunities in OTT, particularly at the local level. Our partnership with Gray will further accelerate Premion’s already exceptional growth by expanding our local footprint and leveraging Gray’s strong performing stations.”

truTV’s Impractical Jokers hit the big screen in a big way. Impractical Jokers: The Movie, an extension of the series, had a debut weekend total of $2.61 million and a per screen average of $7302 at 357 theaters. The film, directed by Chris Henchy (Daddy’s Home) and produced by Funny Or Die, will expand to over 1800 screens nationwide and additional markets including Canada in its second weekend. “We’ve always known the power of the Impractical Jokers fan base but this is more than we could have dreamed of for truTV’s first theatrical release,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager for TNT, TBS, & truTV. “In its eighth season on the small screen the Impractical Jokers’ audience and momentum has continued to build and now they’ve proven that the sky’s the limit for this comedy franchise.”

NBC moved the launch of new drama Council of Dads to Tuesday, March 24 at 10p, immediately following the season finale of This Is Us. The show, originally set to debut March 10, will slip into its new timeslot beginning Thursday, April 30 at 8p. New Amsterdam will air March 10 and 17 in its normal 10p timeslot.

PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

Nickelodeon veteran Cyma Zarghami announced the launch of MiMO Studio, a full-service production and consultancy focused on kids and family content

. The New York-based studio will create content via multiple formats. “MiMO will challenge the typical content format and create franchise-potential properties that will engage kids and their families in deeper and more relevant ways,” said Zarghami. “MiMO Studio will be at the forefront of building a new franchise model for kids’ content in what is seeming more and more like a post-broadcast world.” MiMO’s first live-action movie, based on author Matt Christopher’s children’s book “The Kid Who Only Hit Homers,” began production earlier this month.

MONEY TALK

Sinclair Broadcast Group reported 4Q19 media revenues of $1.58 billion, versus $849 million in 4Q18, helped by distribution revenue of $1.1 billion, versus $334 million. Revenues from digital business increased by 36%. “2019 was a transformational year for our Company, as we almost tripled our enterprise value and transitioned into a more diversified media company,” said President and CEO Chris Ripley. “As the owner of the largest group of regional sports networks (RSNs) and a leading provider of local news, Sinclair is well-positioned to capitalize on the most desirable segments of the broadcast and media industry — live local content that resonates with viewers.”

AMC Networks posted full year revenue growth of 3%, up $88 million to $3.06 billion, while operating income dipped 14% versus the same period the prior year. The company passed 2 million subscribers for its four streaming services – Acorn TV, Shudder, Sundance Now and UMC – and has plans to roll out its offerings internationally. “AMC Networks achieved its key financial targets for the year, against a backdrop of a rapidly shifting media ecosystem,” said President and CEO Josh Sapan. “We continue to move our organization in a new strategic direction, from what has been a cable channels company into a premier targeted content company that is now inhabiting the traditional pay-TV ecosystem, the advanced advertising world, as well as the emerging targeted SVOD marketplace.”

Financial results for Nextstar Media Group for the quarter included net revenue of $1.1 billion, up 37.9%, with a 76% increase in core advertising revenue, to $525 million. “Nexstar’s 2019 fourth quarter financial results capped an outstanding year for the company as we delivered another period of record off-cycle political year operating performance with net revenue, profitability, and cash flow metrics (before one-time transaction expenses) exceeding consensus expectations,” said Perry A. Sook, President and CEO, who noted growth in 16 of the 25 major ad categories. While retail in the fourth quarter didn’t meet expectations, he said, “The financial category was a pleasant surprise, as well as the service area.” Results reflect Nexstar’s acquisition of Tribune Media.

NEW & RETURNING SERIES

Season two of Shudder’s horror anthology series Creepshow will premiere on AMC ahead of its digital debut. “There’s absolute crossover between the brand and the content on some of our linear channels and OTT services,” said AMC Networks COO Ed Carroll during an investor call. “We think that [Creepshow] will be successful on AMC but will also then build audiences for the season two launch back on Shudder.”
