On Wednesday much back-and-forth dialogue occurred between Cablevision Systems and Fox Networks concerning their ongoing retransmission-consent argument.

The day began with Cablevision’s Charles Schueler, EVP/Communications stating,

“Cablevision has and will continue to negotiate in good faith. We are trying to reach a deal that is fair for everyone, including our customers, but there has been absolutely no movement by Fox in their attempts to gain massive fee increases from Cablevision customers to carry broadcast signals that are free over the air.

“The FCC is the government agency charged with protecting television consumers and oversight of broadcast licenses. We do not understand how protecting and interceding on behalf of TV viewers in 3 million blacked out households in the Northeastern United States does not fall under the FCC’s purview. The FCC has the facts and our customers are demanding that the FCC act.”

Cablevision soon followed this by making a new offer to Fox/News Corp. saying they will

“agree to pay the rate Fox charges Time Warner Cable for carriage of WNYW-Fox 5 New York and WTXF-Fox 29 Philadelphia for a period of one year.This is higher than the rate we pay any other New York broadcast station.This solution is in the best interest of not only baseball fans but of all Cablevision customers and Fox viewers. We look forward to a positive response.”

A few hours later, Fox countered with this statement:

“We remain committed to negotiating a fair deal with Cablevision, but today’s incomplete proposal is not acceptable.Cablevision is seeking a discounted ‘package rate’ without buying the entire package.We have told Cablevision all along we are willing to negotiate a deal  based on an entire suite of channels  under the terms we have reached with Time Warner Cable and other providers, or a stand alone agreement for WNYW FOX5, WTXF FOX29 and WWOR My9. Cablevision’s offer  sent to the press just as it was provided to us  is yet another in a long line of publicity stunts.”

Soon after, Cablevision’s Schueler released this statement:

“On behalf of our customers, we are very disappointed that we offered News Corp. what they asked to be paid for Fox 5 and Fox 29 and News Corp. has said no. It is now clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that News Corp. is operating in bad faith. We call on the FCC to intervene immediately to restore the Fox signals to Cablevision’s 3 million homes and order News Corp. to agree to binding arbitration to resolve this conflict.”

Then late yesterday, Cablevision Systems declared its customers can view the World Series games live via online at and Cablevision will reimburse these customers in full.’s 2010 Postseason.TV package includes live coverage of all World Series games and also allows viewers to choose from eight different fixed camera angles with the option to display up to four camera angles on the screen simultaneously in addition to in-game highlights and other features. Those Cablevision customers who buy this package and forward a confirmation of the purchase to Cablevision will have a $10 credit applied to their monthly bill within two billing cycles.

CBS reduced its episode order for the drama series Medium, decreasing the original 22 ep order to 13 total eps. The network is shaving off eps from Medium to make room on the schedule for midseason shows including Chaos, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior and the new reality competition series Live to Dance. CBS Television Studios produces Medium.

Syfy decided to end its freshman series Caprica, the prequel to Battlestar Galactica with the network citing, “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.” As of November 2, Syfy will take Caprica off its schedule and the remaining five episodes of the first season will air sometime during first quarter 2011.

HBO renewed two of its comedies airing on Sunday nights, the private eye series Bored to Death starring Jason Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson and Eastbound & Down helmed by Danny McBride for a third season.

Overall, the doubleheader has become the most-watched NBA Opening Night doubleheader in Turner’s 27 years of covering the opening of the season.
