NBCUniversal Syndication Studios has sold “The Kelly Clarkson Show” to the NBC Owned Television Stations group for two additional seasons, through 2023. The hourlong daytime program, which currently airs in 100% of the country on more than 200 stations, has already been sold in national syndication to more than 75% of the US for its third and fourth seasons. “One ray of sunshine in this wildly unpredictable year is that we get to continue to deliver to stations and fans a show that brings people together,” said Tracie Wilson, EVP, NBCUniversal Syndication Studios.

HBO Max is removing “Chappelle’s Show” from the service on December 31, at the request of Dave Chappelle. Chappelle got Netflix to pull the sketch series, which launched on Comedy Central in 2003, last month. Chappelle posted a video from a stand-up gig during which he expressed his frustration over the fact that due to a deal he signed years ago, he gets no compensation when his show is licensed to streaming services. “Perfectly legal ‘cause I signed the contract,” says Chappell in the video. “But is that right? I didn’t think so either.” During Variety’s Virtual FYCFest on Tuesday, Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer at HBO and HBO Max, said, “We had a conversation with Dave. I won’t get into it, but it’s very clear that it’s a very unique and specific and emotional issue he’s got. So, at the end of the year, December 31, we’re going to honor his request and take the show down.”

Third time’s the charm? Fox gave a straight-to-series order to a “Fantasy Island” reboot from Liz Craft and Sarah Fain (“The Shield”). Sony Pictures Television is producing with Gemstone Studios and Fox Entertainment. The original series aired on ABC from 1978-84, followed by a second version on ABC in 1998-99. “’Fantasy Island’ has always been one of our most popular and iconic series, and when we heard Liz and Sarah’s vision of this world, we immediately knew they were onto something special,” said Sony Pictures TV President Jeff Frost and Co-President Jason Clodfelter. “We can’t think of better partners than Fox to work on this entirely novel take on this classic property.”

Sony Pictures Television exercised its option to trade its ownership stake in Crackle Plus for the right to obtain $40 million of preferred stock in Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. The transaction gives AVOD player Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment 100% ownership and control of Crackle Plus. “Sony has been an incredible partner for Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and this transaction is the natural next step in our relationship,” said William J. Rouhana Jr, CEO of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. “We welcome Sony as a large shareholder and look forward to continuing to work closely with them.”

Fuse Media filed a complaint with the FCC, accusing AT&T and its DirecTV service of discriminatory practices in carriage negotiations. Fuse alleges AT&T is using its market muscle to treat Fuse unfairly, particularly compared with networks AT&T owns and operates. “Since January, Fuse has been the last English-language network carried by AT&T that serves Latinos,” said Fuse. “If AT&T truly values minority voices, then their words must match their actions, especially during a time in which our nation is undergoing a seismic social awakening. We are hopeful that AT&T will reverse course and negotiate in good faith moving forward.” Responded an AT&T spokesperson, “We treat all programmers fairly, including Fuse. They want the FCC to order us to provide programming our customers don’t want or value.”

An LA Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of Viacom in its lawsuit accusing Netflix of poaching a longtime employee. California law bars employment contracts longer than seven years, and Netflix contends extensions of contracts mid-term amounts to coercing employees into signing on to additional years. “Employee mobility and open, fair competition are at the heart of California’s innovation and economic prosperity,” said a Netflix rep. “We strongly disagree with the judge’s ruling which we believe wrongly allows Viacom to use unfair and unlawful contract terms to prevent its employees from taking a job of their choosing.” Netflix is also facing legal action from Fox and Activision for interfering with employee contracts.

Hulu landed US rights to “Everyone Is Doing Great,” a comedy crowdfunded after its first episodes debuted on the festival circuit. Creators James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti (“One Tree Hill”) star as men navigating life and love after their hit vampire drama ends.

Amazon Web Services struck a deal with Twitter calling for AWS to provide global cloud infrastructure to deliver Twitter timelines. Under the multi-year deal, Twitter will leverage AWS’s infrastructure and portfolio of services to support delivery of millions of daily Tweets, marking the first time that Twitter is leveraging the public cloud to scale their real-time service. The new agreement builds on the companies’ long-term collaboration, where AWS continues to provide Twitter with storage, compute, database, and content delivery services to support its distribution of images, videos and ad content. “The collaboration with AWS will improve performance for people who use Twitter by enabling us to serve Tweets from data centers closer to our customers at the same time as we leverage the Arm-based architecture of AWS Graviton2 instances,” said Parag Agrawal, Chief Technology Officer, Twitter. “In addition to helping us scale our infrastructure, this work with AWS enables us to ship features faster as we apply AWS’s diverse and growing portfolio of services.”

The average consumer uses seven SVODs and free streaming services, up from five as of April, according to a study from NPD Group. Access to exclusive content was the main reason for consumers to use SVOD services (39%). A fifth of consumers switched, canceled or decreased their engagement with services because they felt there was better content elsewhere, up from 14% in April. Consumption of free streaming services rose from 39% among consumers in April to 47%. “Amidst COVID-related content production challenges, viewers are increasing the number of streaming services they use, as they seek to find content that captures their interest,” said John Buffone, Executive Director, Industry Analyst with NP’s Connected Intelligence practice. “Competition will become an even greater challenge for services. Both now, as viewers try more options and later as production ramps up and each service gets new programming.”

TV data measurement company Samba TV has entered into a deal with TiVo, which Samba says will allow advertisers to add reach with regards to TV audience lost to viewers skipping with digital video recorders. “Whenever we integrate viewership data from new brands and platforms, we learn more about how unique each brand and its customer base truly is,” said Samba TV co-founder and CEO Ashwin Navin. “It would be a huge mistake to assume that one brand of smart TV or set-top box data is representative or accurate enough to create a normalized view of the TV audience at large.”

That put it just ahead of Coca-Cola’s Christmas campaign, which follows the story of a dad trying to deliver his daughter’s letter to Santa against all the odds, which generated an emotional response 118% higher.
