Sony Pictures Television will distribute Meredith’s People (The TV Show!) in national syndication. The magazine strip debuted September 14 on Meredith-owned stations. “Rather than presenting a pilot, we’re strategically taking the risk out of first-run television by offering stations a show that has already been on-air tested and is delivering great ratings,” said John Weiser, President, First-Run Television for SPT. “We are proud to partner with Meredith broadcasting in representing this well established first-class brand.”

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign will spend $51 million in TV and digital ads during this final week before the election, according to Advertising Analytics, with outside groups set to fork over another $36 million to try and get the Democratic candidate elected. President Trump’s campaign is projected to spend $11 million during the same period, with an additional $15 million in coordination with the Republican National Committee and $20 million from America First Action.

Biden already has one victory under his belt – he won Nickelodeon’s “Kids Pick the President: Kids’ Vote” with 53% of the 90,000 votes, versus 47% for Donald Trump. The online poll had been subject to corruption – over 130,000 bot-generated votes were detected and removed before a winner was declared. “Just as kids value honesty and fairness, so do we at Nickelodeon,” the network said. “Therefore, out of respect for kids everywhere and in the spirit of civic responsibility, we present the name of the winner based on votes cast fairly and within our stated guidelines of one vote counted per household device.”

Ready for an eye-opening conversation? Sign up for today’s “must-attend” webinar for anyone in the advertising orbit. At 1pm ET, “BLACK OWNED MEDIA MATTERS: Addressing the Issue of Systemic Racism in Advertising” will feature Byron Allen and Natasha Alford – and if part one of the discussion last summer was any indication, this will be an hour people will be buzzing about. Registration is free.

The CEOs of Facebook, Google and Twitter were in the (virtual) hot seat during a grilling by lawmakers on Wednesday, after the Trump administration asked Congress to change a provision of a 1996 law that gives social media companies immunity for content posted by users. “The time has come for that free pass to end,” said Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, adding that the laws governing online speech must be updated because “the openness and freedom of the internet are under attack.” Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg said Congress should “update the law to make sure it’s working as intended,” while Google’s Sundar Pichai and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey urged caution in making changes that could undermine free speech.

Telemundo Deportes has reached a broadcast agreement with Xtreme Fighting Championships to present Spanish-Language coverage of the Xtreme Fighting Championships live in the US. XFC events will be broadcast on Telemundo’s sister network, Universo, beginning with XFC 43 on Wednesday, November 11 at 9p.
