Good morning.  It’s Thursday, May 7, 2008, and this is your first early morning briefing. 

Following speculation late Tuesday, it’s official – Sundance Channel will join IFC, AMC, WE tv and the VOOM HD networks, as one of the Rainbow Media networks under Cablevision Systems Corp.  The acquisition will cost Cablevision $496 million in stock and cash.  Sundance will remain a single and distinct channel.  Up next for Cablevision? Last week it put in an offer to buy Newsday for $650 million.  Newsday is also being courted by News Corp. and by The Daily News owner Mortimer Zuckerman.

Meanwhile, looking at other potential sales – TV Guide was recently bought by Macrovision Solutions Corporation for $2.8 billion from Gemstar-TV Guide, the publisher of TV Guide magazine.  Now Macrovision says it’s looking for a buyer for the print edition of TV Guide, as well as its two cable networks – The TV Guide Network and TVG, a horse-racing network.  Macrovision plans to hold onto the electronic side of its original purchase, which include, and its on-screen viewer guides.

Tonight’s Premiere:
History: Tougher in Alaska at 10p

Don’t miss “Relative Madness: Mama Drama” starting tonight at 11/10c only on SOAPnet!


No surprises here – AMC announced it will renew the original series Breaking Bad for a second run of 13 episodes. The series about a down-and-out guy who turns to crime to make money for his family, is produced by Sony Pictures Television and was created by Vince Gilligan (X-Files).

Bravo will continue to “flip out” as the docu-series Flipping Out is back for a second season starting June 17 at 10p. Jeff Lewis, the ranting obsessive-compulsive house flipper, and his staff are back as they renovate and sell multimillion-dollar houses in the Los Angeles area. Authentic Entertainment produces the series.

Another syndicated daytime talk show will be going hi-def this fall when The Ellen DeGeneres Show opens its sixth season on September 8. Ellen’s show also moves its production to Stage 1, a new updated facility on the Warner Bros. Studio lot. The one-hour daily talker was renewed through the 2010-2011 season.

NBC Universal is making strides to fulfill its long-term plans for its East Coast operations. First, WNBC will makeover its 30 Rockefeller Center location into a multimillion dollar content facility and launch a 24-hour local news channel on the station’s digital tier this fall. The goal of this move is to offer more news and information to the New York market and house NBC News, NBC Sports, NBC Entertainment including SNL and Late Night with Conan O’Brien and WNBC, literally all under one roof. Additionally, a new Business Operations Center will open next year and employees from three different locations will come together … you guessed it, under the same 30 Rock roof. 

College journalism students in five schools will get the resume-building opportunity to have their localized news stories carried on ABC News’ digital or broadcast outlets such as World News with Charles Gibson and Good Morning America. The five colleges: Arizona State Univ., Syracuse Univ., Univ. of Florida, Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Univ. of Texas, will all open a “digital bureau” in September. Other ABC News platforms will be made available to the student reporters including Nightline, ABC News Now,, MTVU, ABC News Radio and NewsOne.

CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  Social networking platforms are still waiting for traffic to translate into revenue. MySpace parent Fox Interactive Media’s revenue actually fell during Q1 from $233 million to $210 million as News Corp. CEO Peter Chernin admitted in a conference call that FIM will fall about 10% short of its optimistic $1 billion revenue projection for FY ’08. The company is still dealing with several challenges, he said, including an abundance of inventory, a dearth of top shelf sponsors and the difficulty of establishing new metrics to prove FIM’s value to advertisers.   Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.

This day in History:  1886 – Originally used for medicinal purposes, Dr. John S. Pemberton first sold his secret elixir at Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia. Three years later, Dr. Pemberton figured that his secret formula had been enough of a success for him to sell out, for $2,300. Today, that same formula is still used in a product that sells about 350 million cans and bottles a day in nearly 200 countries. This product is Coca-Cola.
