Channing Dungey has been named President of ABC Entertainment, replacing Paul Lee. “Channing is a gifted leader and a proven magnet for top creative talent, with an impressive record of developing compelling, breakthrough programming that resonates with viewers,” said Ben Sherwood, President, Disney/ABC Television Group. “We thank Paul for his many accomplishments at ABC and his devotion to the ABC brand.” Dungey, who called Lee a “valued mentor and friend,” was previously  EVP, Drama Development, Movies & Miniseries, overseeing development of shows including Scandal, Once Upon a Time and Quantico. With ABC since 2004, Dungey is the first African-American woman to head a broadcast network. Lee’s resignation was characterized by the New York Times as the result of a power struggle with Sherwood.

Unforgettable, canceled by CBS after three seasons then picked up by A&E for a fourth, has been canceled again. The crime drama premiered on cable to 1.12 million viewers and .2 among A18-49 in Live+3 ratings.

The Associated Press is launching a VR and 360-degree video news channel in collaboration with chipmaker AMD. “Each new publishing technology reinvents how we experience news, and VR promises the next revolution by immersing us deep in a story,” said Paul Cheung, AP’s director of interactive and digital news production. “With AMD’s collaboration, AP will leverage their expertise in image rendering and graphic technology so that we can enhance and strengthen the VR news experience.”

Monday’s 90-minute service outage on Comcast was the result of  “a configuration error in a network device that supports our live video network,” said Kevin McElearney, SVP of network engineering. “Our national video infrastructure is fully redundant, and our back-up systems normally operate successfully when unexpected issues happen. This specific issue caused national cable channels to reroute, which resulted in a service interruption.” Comcast said it will give credit to customers affected by the disruption.

The season finale of Discovery’s Killing Fields drew 2.45 million viewers in Live+3 numbers, up 44 percent from its premiere. Among A25-54 the episode delivered 1.3 million, up from 762,000, and was the top unscripted, non-news show on all of cable at 10p in the demo. Fearless prediction: Discovery’s first true-crime series won’t be its last.

As PUT levels declined for a second straight week, the top syndicated strips mostly held steady. Leader Judge Judy was unchanged at 7.8 (but up 7 percent versus last year), top talker Dr. Phil held at 3.3 and Live With Kelly & Michael took a 3 percent dip to 3.1. Number one magazine show Entertainment Tonight held at 3.4, while top game show Wheel of Fortune repeated the prior week’s 7.4 rating.

Opposite the Grammys on Monday (and without a Sunday The Walking Dead lead-in), the season two premiere of AMC’s Better Call Saul delivered a solid 2.57 million viewers and 1.06 rating among A18-49. That’s down 23 percent and 33 percent, respectively, from the series’ 2015 debut, but up in viewership from the 2.53 million for its April finale. If the past is any indication, look for healthy Live+3 boosts.

CBS had the top ten broadcasts over six nights in Live+SD viewing the week ending February 14, a first for any network since Nielsen started reporting Live+SD ratings in 2005.

The week of February 8, Travel Channel posted its best primetime P25-54 rating (.27) in nearly two years, up 30 percent over the same week last year.The net’s .2 rating among P25-34 was a 25 percent increase. Wednesday’s Expedition Unknown delivered a .4 P25-54 rating, givingthe night a 60 percent bump over last year.

Friday’s coverage of the Pope’s Mexico visit, Llegada de su Santidad Francisco a Mexico, helped Univision rank as the No. 3 broadcast network among A18-34 for the entire evening. The special, airing 8-10pm, averaged 2.0 million total viewers 2+, 969,000 A18-49 and 411,000 A18-34.

Hallmark Channel wrapped its “Countdown to Valentine’s Day” programming stunt with a 2.3HH rating for Valentine Ever After and 1.9HH for Anything for Love. Over the course of the three week event, all five original movie premieres averaged over 2 million total viewers and reached nearly 9 million unduplicated total viewers.

Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America wrapped its season with an average .8 rating (780,000 impressions) among A25-54 and a .7 rating (210,000 impressions) among A25-34. Both demos saw gains, up 8 percent and 22 percent, respectively, versus year-ago.
