Fox primetime special Megyn Kelly Presents has been moved up to Tuesday, May 17 from May 23. It will be the first in a series of specials starring Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File host, whose FNC show on Wednesday drew 2.2 million viewers as she described her recent meeting with Donald Trump. “Mr. Trump and I discussed the possibility of an interview. And I hope we will have news to announce soon,” said Kelly. Coupled, a new dating show from Mark Burnett, will follow the May 17 special.

For your consideration: Showtime is offering Television Academy members a free subscription through its stand-alone streaming service. All of Showtime’s Emmy-eligible programming, including newcomers Billions and The Circus, will be featured in advertising encouraging Academy members to vote. Freebie lasts through June 30.  Showtime will also once again have a dedicated awards site for screening programs, and is hosting a series of panel events for Television Academy and Guild members in LA and NYC.

NBC is airing an extended, 90-minute version of Adele Live in New York City on Friday, May 6 at 8p. The show’s December 14 telecast averaged a 3.7 rating among A18-49 and 13.8 million viewers in Live+7, NBC’s most-watched concert special in 13 years.

President Obama backed the FCC’s plan to give independent manufacturers of set top boxes alternatives to cable and satellite company deals. Consumers now pay $20 billion to rent or lease boxes, up 185 percent 20 years ago, noted the White House, while the prices for TVs, computers and mobile phones have declined by 90 percent. “Across our economy, too many consumers are dealing with inferior or overpriced products, too many workers aren’t getting the wage increases they deserve, too many entrepreneurs and small businesses are getting squeezed out unfairly by their bigger competitors, and overall we are not seeing the level of innovative growth we would like to see,” said Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Ecumenic Advisors, and Jeffrey Zientz, Director of the National Economic Council and Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, in a statement. Responded broadband provider trade association USTelecom, "When the president ‘calls upon’ his appointees and an agency chairman who serves at his pleasure to act in a particular way, he is ‘directing’ them, and all credibility in the independence of the agency and trust in the administrative process evaporates.”

In a court filing, CBS and Big Ticket Television scoffed at the talent agency Rebel Entertainment Partners’ claim that it was owed payments for Judge Judy dating back to 2010.  “Judge Sheindlin, her producers and crew have worked for 20 years in producing a successful syndicated program,” said CBS and Big Ticket. “[Rebel’s Richard] Lawrence has never been on the set of the program in 20 years, nor has he had any communication with his talent.” The filing said the agency had collected $17 in package fees “for doing nothing,” and didn’t represent Judy Sheindlin.

Chosen for the 2015 Television Academy Honors are A&E reality show Born This Way, HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Showtime’s Homeland, Cinemax’s The Knick, Smithsonian Channel doc Mississippi Inferno and Netflix film Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom. Event hosted by Dana Delany will be held in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, June 8.

Fox pilot Chad: An American Boy, greenlit in February, will not complete production in time to be considered for the fall season. “Because of our commitment to authenticity, we conducted a worldwide casting search for several roles in this pilot which meant that we wouldn’t have been able to get visas in time to shoot within the traditional pilot window,” said 20th Century Fox TV. Shooting on the Middle Eastern family comedy starts in late May.

Brands have a new way to reach sports fans. The NBA approved jersey sponsorships starting with the 2017-28 season, after selling sponsorship rights to Kia for patches for February’s NBA All-Star Game. Each team will sell its own sponsorship as part of the three-year pilot program. It’s win-win, said NBA commissioner Adam Silver: “Jersey sponsorships provide deeper engagement with partners looking to build a unique association with our teams and the additional investment will help grow the game in exciting new ways. We’re always thinking about innovative ways the NBA can remain competitive in a global marketplace.”


Louis C.K. notified fans via email that there will be no new episodes of his self-financed web series, Horace and Pete. “That was it,” wrote C.K. “I didn’t want to say, in the last email, that it was the last episode.

But yeah, obviously, that was it.” All ten eps of the dramedy starring C.K. and Steve Buscemi are now available for $31.
