Apps may be affecting your digital video business more than you know.



Good morning. It’s Thursday September 8, 2016, and this is your first early morning briefing.

Tonight’s Premieres:
Cooking: Haylie’s America at 10p
DIY: Tiny House Big Living at 9p
FX: Better Things at 10p
Logo: Finding Prince Charming at 9p

Tonight’s Finale:
ID: Unraveled at 9p


Last night’s season three finale episode of Tyrant was its last, at least on FX. “It’s very difficult to find common ground with other people whose stories we do not know or understand,” said FX president and GM John Landgraf. “The creators of Tyrant have done their utmost over three seasons to tell American audiences a tiny fraction of the many gripping, human stories coursing through the Middle East today.” Fox 21 Television Studios president Bert Salke left room for hope, saying, “We feel the show is a gem and we’d love to find a way to keep it in production.” 

Apple launched its iPhone 7 event Wednesday with a little Carpool Karaoke from The Late Late Show’s James Corden, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Pharrell. In July, Apple announced the purchase of a spin-off of Carpool, which will stream on Apple Music. 

Tegna, the largest independent owner of CBS and NBC affiliates, announced Wednesday it’s spinning off car buying site Cars.com. Splitting the companies will position them “to take advantage of differentiated opportunities in the rapidly evolving broadcast and digital landscape,” said Tegna, which went under the name Gannett until spinning off its newspaper business last year. CEO Gracia Martore will retire when the move is completed, replaced at Tegna by Dave Lougee, now president of the station group, and at Cars.com by Alex Vetter.

The FCC is eliminating a 30-year rule that allowed TV station groups to discount the reach of stations that broadcast on the UHF band now that a 2009 transition to digital over-the-air broadcasts makes UHF channels “equal, if not superior to, VHF channels,” said the regulator. Station groups are prohibited from reaching over 39 percent of TV households, but under the old rule could include just half of houses with UHF stations in that count. Grandfathered in are companies, like Univision and Ion, that had arrangements set on or before September 2013, when the FCC proposed the rule change. While the FCC order called the approach “fair,” some would beg to differ. Said Dennis Wharton, of the National Association of Broadcasters, “While other industries are allowed to innovate without stifling regulation, when it comes to broadcasters, the FCC acts as if we are still in an era of I Love Lucy.”

Univision’s desire for programming that will be more appealing to a new generation of younger and U.S.-born Hispanics has had CEO Randy Falco asking long-time supplier Televisa for changes, according to the Wall Street Journal. Nearly 60 percent of the 55 million Hispanics in the U.S. are millennials or younger, notes the WSJ, drawn to shows edgier and faster-paced than traditional telenovelas. Insisting that the relationship between Univision and Televisa has “never been stronger,” Univision executive chairman Haim Saban said “the fact that programming partners discuss ways to improve programming should be a surprise to no one.”

Louisiana Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Relief, presented live Monday night by Raycom Media, raised over $800,000 for American Red Cross Flood Relief. Harry Connick Jr. and Randy Jackson hosted the event from Baton Rouge. The show was carried by Raycom Media, Bounce TV, the ABC Owned and Operated Stations, Hearst Television, Sinclair Broadcasting Group, Cordillera Communications, Meredith, Graham Media Group and Cox Media Group. “We are grateful to our broadcast partners that helped us reach markets beyond the Raycom Media footprint,” said Pat LaPlatney, president and CEO of Raycom Media.

Additions to the list of presenters for the 68th Emmy Awards include Laverne Cox, Tracee Ellis Ross, America Ferrara, Kit Harington, Matt LeBlanc, Joel McHale, Mandy Moore, Chris Rock, Keri Russell, Jeffrey Tambor, Kerry Washington, Damon Wayans and Constance Wu. Ceremony airs Sunday, September 18 at 8p.
