Good Morning.  It’s Monday, March 17, 2008, and this is your first early morning briefing.

The ongoing feud between InterActiveCorp CEO Barry Diller and John Malone, controlling shareholder of Liberty Media, may have some resolution on March 28 as the Delaware Chancery Court Judge Stephen Lamb will rule if Diller violated his proxy agreement after both sides present briefs this Friday. The rift occurred last November when Diller wanted to spin off IAC’s HSN, Ticketmaster, LendingTree and the Interval time-share business into four separate businesses. Liberty, which has 30% equity in IAC, blocked the deal saying the split companies would dilute its 62% voting power. If the judge rules against Diller, he may be removed as Chairman/CEO. However, if the court decides he didn’t breach the proxy agreement, a second argument asking if Diller violated his duty to shareholders will be presented.

Tonight’s Premieres:
ABC: Dancing with the Stars at 8p and The Bachelor at 932p
ABC Family: America’s Prom Queen at 9p
Tonight’s Finale:
ABC Family: Kyle XY at 8p


MOJO HD brings back a new season of I Bet You starting April 10 at 930p. During the second season with 14 new episodes, best pals and championship poker pros Phil “The Unabomber” Laak and Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari will travel cross-country competing against each other and betting on almost everything they encounter. 

Wizard’s First Rule, the new first-run, live-action weekly series distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television has cleared in 84% of the U.S. including each of the top 50 markets. The scripted, one-hour series has been picked up by stations from broadcast groups such as Tribune Broadcasting Company, CBS Television Stations Group, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Hearst-Argyle Television, Clear Channel Broadcasting, Gannett Broadcasting, Hubbard Broadcasting, Post-Newsweek Stations, Scripps Howard Broadcasting, Belo Corporation, LIN Broadcasting, Weigel Broadcasting, Sunbelt Communications, Acme Television and Barrington Broadcasting. From executive producer Sam Raimi and based on Terry Goodkind’s novel Wizard’s First Rule and the fantasy series The Sword of Truth, the television series will be produced by ABC Studios, the studio’s first broadcast syndication project, with production on the 22 episodes set to begin this May.

WE tv’s debut of the documentary series High School Confidential on March 10 (10p) drew in 389,000 W18-49, 357,000 W25-54 and 208,000 W18-34 viewers.

Donny and Marie Osmond will co-host NBC’s live 2008 Miss USA Pageant from the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on April 11 at 9p.

In a stunt which did boost ratings, actor/comedian Billy Crystal was on the roster for the New York Yankees for Thursday’s preseason telecast of the Yankees versus Pittsburgh Pirates game on the YES Network. The network posted its highest-rated and most-watched preseason game averaging a 1.1 HH rating and 89,000 viewers. Crystal, No. 60, was the Yankee’s designated hitter against Pirate’s pitcher Paul Maholm, and eventually struck out, and has been since bounced off the team.

Creative Television Marketing (CTM) launched a national television syndication ad sales service and its first client is representing Telco Productions’ syndicated barter inventory for the programs Animal Rescue, Dog Tales and Mission. All shows were formally represented by Tribune Entertainment.
Media General sold ABC affiliate WMBB/Panama City and KALB-NALB/Alexandria which is a dual NBC/CBS outlet to Hoak Media. Pending normal regulatory approval, the transaction is expected to close in second or third quarter. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. In a one-week period, Media General has now sold three of the five stations it had planned to sell that are located in mid-sized Southeast markets. The two remaining stations on the auction block are WCWJ/Jacksonville and WNEG/Toccoa, GA.

Clear Channel Communications finalized the sale of its television group, totaling 56 TV stations, to Newport Television, a holding company for Providence Equity Partners. The $1.1 billion transaction is approximately $200 million less than the terms of the original deal negotiated last April. For the last month, Clear Channel and Providence have been in court, as Clear Channel filed suit against Providence claiming it was delaying the closing. Providence also sued Wachovia for not providing financing for the deal. This new deal settles the outstanding litigation issues.

IMHO: While there is much on television I enjoy watching and am entertained by, there is only a handful of programs/specials/miniseries that can truly be considered great television – Roots, War and Remembrance, Shogun, Planet Earth and I know there are others you’ll add to your list.  Add also the newest miniseries seen on television – HBO Films and Playtone’s John Adams. One of the most compelling and riveting programs ever brought to television, and if we’re fortunate, HBO Films and Playtone will continue with others from the David McCullough series.  But that’s just my opinion.

This day in History0461 – St. Patrick died in Saul. Ireland celebrates this as a national holiday in his honor. The first civic and public celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day in the 13 colonies took place in Boston in 1737. The first celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day in New York City was held at the Crown and Thistle Tavern in 1756.  By the way, if today someone says “Top ‘o the mornin’ to ya,” the proper response is “And the rest of the day to yourself.”
