Good Morning.  It’s Monday, August 13, 2007, and this is your first early morning briefing.

Merv Griffin, creator and producer of game show hits Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune, died yesterday. He was 82. Merv, whose career began in the late 1940s as a big band crooner, also hosted his own syndicated talk show The Merv Griffin Show beginning in 1965 and continuing for more than 20 years. Merv created and then sold the rights to Jeopardy! (which started in 1964) and Wheel of Fortune (which began in 1975) in 1986 to Columbia Pictures Television Unit for $250 million. After that he focused on real estate, operating resorts and casinos from the Caribbean to Atlantic City. Merv’s latest television project was Merv Griffin’s Crosswords, the new syndicated series from Program Partners scheduled to launch next month, where he served as Executive Producer. Merv is survived by his son, a daughter-in-law and two grandchildren.

The announcement is expected today after “several years” of consideration – Nickelodeon‘s Noggin and its primetime-only counterpart The N, will split and become two stand-along 24 hour networks. Noggin’s audience is the preschool set, and The N, home of DeGrassi: The Next Generation, goes after the young teen and preteen crowd.  Finding channel space is always a challenge, but Nick has that one figured out as well, according to The New York Times.  Nickelodeon’s Games & Sports Network (aka Nick GAS) will go fully broadband, and that channel space will now go to The N.  With plenty of time to fill, The N has ordered up a few new original series, including About a Girl, focused on a college girl living with four guys; and a reality series called Queen Bees which is best described by its original title – Mean Girl Makeover. Additionally, The N has acquired That ’70s Show, which coincidentally ABC Family will begin airing in 2008 as well.

The eBay Media Marketplace completed its second scatter advertising deal last week, signing emerging cable network TV One, which joins Oxygen as the first two cable networks to sign up to utilize the online ad exchange. eBay provides a software platform to allow advertisers to negotiate for available TV spots.

PorchLight Entertainment, producer and distributor of family entertainment will establish Condor Releasing a new global distribution unit and home entertainment label that will involve family content on all platforms. The initial acquisition is Antonio Negret’s film Towards Darkness, starring America Ferrera from ABC’s Ugly Betty. Additionally, the new division will distribute the comedic film Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

The syndicated version of Deal or No Deal, distributed by NBC Universal, will have a few changes from the primetime version.  Perhaps the most important similarity, is the presence of Howie Mandel as host.  The game itself is a little different – top prize is $250,000, not a million (after all, this is daytime TV!), the number of stunning models will be reduced, and the length of the show is cut from 60 minutes to a half hour, reports Variety.

The Nielsen Company purchased San Francisco-based Telephia, Inc., a company that provides syndicated consumer research to the telecom and mobile media industries. Nielsen Wireless, the new service which measures consumer usage of mobile online and mobile video, will be wrapped into Telephia. Sid Gorham, Telephia’s President/CEO will remain in his position, reporting to Susan D. Whiting, EVP, The Nielsen Company, and the company will continue to be based in San Francisco.

Robin Roberts of ABC’s Good Morning America will return to the morning show today, following successful breast cancer surgery. While she awaits official test results of that surgery, her recovery has gone well enough to warrant her return to the anchor desk this morning.

A few interesting parallels between Merv Griffin and talk show rival Mike Douglas provided by a Cynopsis subscriber.  The two were often confused with each other and even their guests would refer to the other which would drive them both crazy. However, both gentlemen shared some amazing similarities. For example, both were born during the summer of 1925, five weeks apart and both were Irish-American. Both started out as big band singers in the 1940s.  In the same year, each hosted a successful talk show, syndicated by Group W. And the two gentlemen died a year and a day apart from each other – Mike on August 11, 2006 and Merv on August 12, 2007.
