Netflix ordered a sixth season of Queer Eye, ahead of the makeover series’ season five debut this summer. This time around, the Fab Five will be based in Austin, where they’ll “scour the prairie in a search for a whole new roster of heroes in need of a little TLC.”

After meetings with the French government, health authorities, and city officials from Lille about COVID-19 concerns, the 2020 Series Mania Festival (March 20-28), Series Mania Forum (March 25-27), and Lille Dialogues (March 26) have been cancelled….Also off is the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas, scheduled for April 18-22, though among the alternatives being considered is an event later in the year….UCLA’s 44th Annual Entertainment Symposium, slated for March 20-21, has been postponed to a later date….NCAA Tournament games will be played with only essential staff and family….National Lampoon musical comedy Lemmings: 21st Century, has been postponed from its scheduled March 14-15 dates in NYC.

With companies opting out of events due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Interactive Advertising Bureau is adding video-streaming options to members forgoing live and in-person presentations. “Presenters will be able to use your own platforms or domains to host the streamed events, with IAB redirecting users to proprietary domains, or viewers will be able to access the presenter’s content directly through the IAB streamed option,” said the IAB. The organization’s Digital Content NewFront event is slated to take place April 27-May 6 in NYC.

Among those taking the IAB up on its NewFronts offer are Twitter and YouTube. “We’re excited to embrace this new level of flexibility that the IAB has so thoughtfully laid out for its presenters,” said Twitter. “We’ll share more in the coming weeks.”

Add The View; Live With Kelly and Ryan; Good Morning America,;Strahan, Sara and Keke; and Tamron Hall to the list of syndicated shows that will tape without a studio audience due to the COVID-19 outbreak. “Given the current developing situation in New York City, we have made the decision to suspend live audiences from attending our news broadcasts and talk shows,” said a Walt Disney Television rep. The Wendy Williams Show, Dr. Phil, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune were already taping without an audience.

Late night shows will also tape without studio audiences. Starting Monday, March 16, CBS’s The Late Show, NBC’s The Tonight Show and Late Night, TBS’s Full Frontal and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show will forgo the live laughter. (TBS’s Conan was pre-taped.) Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee joked that she’ll do her show in front of a mirror, “which I actually prefer.” FOX News has dropped the live audience for Greg Gutfeld’s Saturday night late night comedy show The Greg Gutfeld Show.

Production on season 41 of Survivor is delayed, “due to concerns and uncertainty surrounding the spread of COVID-19 globally,” said CBS. While the setting, Fiji, has no reported cases, over 400 crew members would be flying in from over 20 countries, noted Survivor host /exec producer Jeff Probst to his team. Production is set to resume on May 19.

With the Dow Jones plunging 5.86%, or 1464 points yesterday, media stocks felt the pain – though most fared better than the overall market. Disney stock slid 5.3%, ViacomCBS dropped 3.5%, and Comcast was down 3%. Among tech stocks, Twitter sank 8.8%, Alphabet fell 5%, Facebook dipped 4.5%, Amazon was down 3.7% and Apple fell 3.5%.

“I think ABC News has a stellar track record of objectivity in reporting the news and it will continue in future,” said Disney’s new CEO, Bob Chapek, at The Walt Disney Company’s annual meeting of shareholders. Chapek was asked a question related to Project Veritas reporting about negative coverage of President Trump, as well as sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, and responded that he was overwhelmed by the professionalism and objectivity of ABC News.

The Anatomy of a Video Experience, a study conducted by MAGNA, IPG Media Lab and Vevo, explores the ways consumers view video across OTT, linear TV, PC and mobile, and what motivates their viewing habits. The study found that viewers have no true “go-to” device to watch video – instead, device selections are made in the moment based on situational factors. (For example, viewers select OTT for video/audio quality, select linear for exclusive content, and select mobile and PC for accessibility.) Other key findings include the fact that consumers are in different mindsets on each video device; audio attention reigns supreme, even in a video environment; linear TV users are more likely browsing on other digital devices if they’re multi-tasking than users of other devices; and there is more passive video search discovery happening on OTT (24%) than other digital devices like PC (18%) and mobile (16%).

HBO Max launches in May.
