NBC News and TV One are teaming to offer coverage of the 2012 presidential election with a unique perspective aimed at the African American audience.  The coverage will encompass the final night of both the Republican National Convention (RNC) and the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in addition to the night of the presidential election.  The three nights of coverage will be branded as TV One: One Vote Matters.  This partnership marks the first time the two organizations are working together as well as TV One presenting national convention coverage.  The announcement was made jointly by NBC News President Steve Capus and TV One President/CEO Wonya Lucas.  TV One will air a four-hour block of coverage on the final night of the RNC on August 30 starting at 8p and for the DNC on September 6 beginning at 8p.  NBC News’ Craig Melvin will anchor all three evenings of coverage from NBC’s Washington, D.C. studios and TV One’s Washington Watch host Roland Martin will also offer further coverage and contribute segments and analysis.  TV One’s 2012 presidential election night coverage will be live on November 6 beginning at 7p and will include the final victory speech of the newly-elected President of the United States.

Ramping up its presidential election reporting plans, Current TV will have Vice President Al Gore, who is also the network’s co-founder, lead its coverage of the Republican National Convention (RNC) beginning August 27 from 7p to 11p over four nights as well as coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) beginning September 4 from 7p to 11p and concluding on September 6.  Joining Vice President Gore for Current TV will be former Michigan Governor and The War Room host, Jennifer Granholm, former New York Governor and Viewpoint host, Eliot Spitzer and host of The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur.  California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom will also join the panel for the RNC coverage.  Current TV’s convention headquarters is based in New York with David Shuster and Michael Shure reporting from both convention sites.  Current TV hosts Joy Behar and John Fugelsang will both contribute.

Yesterday, Liberty Media revealed its aim to spin off Starz LLC into a separate publicly-traded company.  Liberty Media executives indicated the move will give investors “a better view of Starz’ operations while creating added liquidity at Liberty Media.” Starz is currently at 20.7 million subscribers while Encore has 34.2 million subscribers at the end of second quarter.  Furthermore, Starz’ revenue remains stable at $403 million for second quarter, based on Liberty Media’s earnings statement. The spinoff of Starz will not require a stockholder vote and is expected to happen later this year.

Animal Planet’s new six-episode series, Hell on the Border, follows an elite force from the Nogales, Arizona police department who use their K-9 unit to help protect their town and border.  The police officers and their canines must battle drug cartels and human traffickers and more.  Hell on the Border launches with a special premiere episode on August 19 at 11p following Call of the Wildman and then moves to its regular time period of Fridays at 10p on August 24.  Hoff Productions produces the series for Animal Planet.

A fourth season of Run My Renovation debuts on DIY Network August 16 at 9p.  With hosts Joanie Dodds and John DeSilvia, the series showcases homeowners who allow a room in their house to be completely transformed using directions from online fans who vote on everything from the flooring to lighting fixtures.  When the votes are tallied, Joanie and John, with help from the homeowners have to pull all the components together to make over the room.  RIVR Media produces the series for DIY Network.

SCIENCE reported it tallied 1.3 million unique viewers Monday night at 10p for its coverage of the Mars Landing 2012: The New Search for Life, a co-production between SCIENCE and Discovery Canada. 


ION Television picked up the off-net rights to all ten seasons of Law & Order: Criminal Intent from NBCUniversal Cable and Media Distribution.  ION will add the crime series, which originally ran on NBC for six seasons and concluded on USA Network in 2011, to its Positively Entertainment lineup.

Nationally syndicated half-hour weekly show, What America Thinks with Scott Rasmussen will begin sending its affiliate stations daily one-minute news updates starting next week.  According to Telco Productions and Rasmussen Reports, the news updates will be used on stations’ websites and newscasts highlighting the latest polling data on current events, business topics and the upcoming presidential election.  The show is launching the first week in September on more than 50 TV stations including WCBS/New York, KCBS/Los Angeles, KYW/Philadelphia and KTVU/San Francisco.
