A: About a month ago, I mentioned that Carrie Ann Inaba had taken a hiatus from the CBS show and her return was not certain. Shortly after this response aired, Inaba announced that she was leaving “The Talk”. (She will still be on “Dancing with the Stars,” which begins a new season on September 20.) Inaba called this a friendly separation in an Instagram post. Next, Elaine Welteroth also announced that she was quitting the show, apparently to pursue other projects. The result of these and other changes is current lineup by Akbar Gbajabiamila (also known for “American Ninja Warrior”), Amanda Kloots (who is also a part of the new cast of “Dancing with the Stars”), Jerry O ‘Connell and Sheryl Undergrowth.

As long as we’re talking about talking …

Q: Will “The Real” be back?

A: The show kicks off a new season on September 20 with hosts Garcelle Beauvais, Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, and Jeannie Mai Jenkins. Unlike “The Talk”, which is a network show, “The Real” is in broadcast syndication, which gives stations much more flexibility in which time slot to broadcast it. In Ohio, where I live, it airs at five different times, depending on which station you’re watching. You can use the “when it’s on” button on thereal.com to see what’s happening in your area or check your local listings.

Q: When will “This Old House” have new episodes?

Nielsen struggling to update metrics for local TV http://carolchanning.org/nielsen-struggling-to-update-metrics-for-local-tv/ http://carolchanning.org/nielsen-struggling-to-update-metrics-for-local-tv/#respond Tue, 21 Sep 2021 20:41:46 +0000 http://carolchanning.org/nielsen-struggling-to-update-metrics-for-local-tv/ NEW YORK (AP) – The Nielsen company, increasingly criticized by the television industry, said on Tuesday it would soon include homes that cut cable in favor of broadband in its audience measurements for local television markets.

NEW YORK (AP) – The Nielsen company, increasingly criticized by the television industry, said on Tuesday it would soon include homes that cut cable in favor of broadband in its audience measurements for local television markets.

Nielsen estimates that about 20% of American homes are now equipped with broadband just for on-screen entertainment. The company is already including these homes in its national TV metrics, but in January it will do so for local markets, giving TV channels a more complete picture of who’s watching in order to sell ads.

“This is a big step in ensuring that our measure is truly inclusive,” said Catherine Herkovic, general manager of Nielsen and executive vice president of local television.

The move comes as media companies have expressed dissatisfaction with Nielsen, who for decades has had a virtual monopoly on television audience measurement, a statistic used to govern billions of dollars in advertising spending.

Because of this position, it is not uncommon for media companies to complain about Nielsen and aspire to a competitor. They fear that Nielsen may not be equipped to handle the drastic shift to streaming services and viewing on multiple devices.

While media and technology have been completely transformed, measurement remains obsolete, said Kelly Abcarian, executive vice president of NBC Universal, measurement and impact, advertising and partnerships.

NBC Universal sent out a request for proposals to other companies last month to help build a new measurement system, and got 80 responses, more than expected. It’s a bold step: despite all the periodic dissatisfaction with Nielsen, it never resulted in a competitor living up to its size and service.

“It’s time for us to declare measurement independence and create solutions that will serve all consumers, advertisers, publishers and platforms for the next century,” said Abcarian.

Nielsen’s point of view, in essence, is that the truth hurts, that they have become the scapegoats for changes in habits that show a sharp decline in television viewing.

A few weeks ago, the Media Ratings Council, an obscure industry group that rates independent measurement systems, withdrew Nielsen’s accreditation for its national television rating service. While mostly symbolic, it’s a clear slap in the face that highlights concern over Nielsen.

Herkovic said Nielsen was affected early in the COVID-19 pandemic by an inability to recruit new families to replace those who left its consumer panels that allow the company to measure viewers. “It stalled things,” she said.

She said Nielsen was working with the Media Ratings Council to try to restore its accreditation.

One little piece of news Nielsen brought to the industry this week: The Emmy Awards audience, with 7.83 million viewers, has grown over the past two years. This may reflect the popularity of the most honored shows including “Ted Lasso”, “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit”.

Football has dominated the odds, otherwise. One notable game came on Saturday afternoon, CBS Collegiate telecast of Alabama vs. Florida. With 7.86 million viewers and a peak of 11.59 million just before its conclusion, it was the network’s most-watched SEC season opener since 2013.

NBC was the most popular network in prime time, averaging 5.3 million viewers. ABC had 4.9 million, CBS 4.4 million, Fox 1.8 million, Univision 1.3 million, Telemundo 1.07 million, and Ion Television 1.06 million.

Fox News Channel dominated prime-time cable networks, averaging 2.63 million viewers. ESPN had 1.94 million, MSNBC 1.33 million, HGTV 1.06 million, and Hallmark 894,000.

ABC’s “World News Tonight” topped evening news broadcasts with an average of 7.9 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 6.6 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 4.8 million.

For the week of September 13 to 19, the 20 most watched prime time shows, their networks and their audiences:

1. NFL Football: Kansas City to Baltimore, NBC, 19.81 million.

2. “NFL Pregame” (Sunday), NBC, 14.72 million.

3. “NFL Postgame” (Sunday), CBS, $ 14.5 million.

4. NFL Football: Baltimore to Las Vegas, ABC, $ 14.46 million.

5. “NFL Postgame” (Sunday), Fox, 11.37 million.

6. “Football Night in America, Part 3”, NBC, $ 10.3 million.

7. “NFL Pregame” (Monday), ABC, 8.44 million.

8. “Emmy Awards,” CBS, 7.83 million.

9. College football: Auburn at Penn State, ABC, 7.61 million.

10. NFL Football: Baltimore in Las Vegas, ESPN, 7.57 million.

11. “America’s Got Talent” (Tuesday), NBC, 7.43 million.

12. NFL Football: NY Giants in Washington, NFLN, 7.33 million.

13. “America’s Got Talent” (Wednesday), NBC, 6.39 million.

LOS ANGELES – If quitting the legendary role of host of “The Tonight Show” requires retirement, Jay Leno ignored the note.

Since ending his longtime late-night gig in 2014, Leno has maintained a steady pace. He appears regularly in television projects by fellow comedians Jerry Seinfeld, Larry Wilmore, Tim Allen, Dennis Miller and others.

His passion for anything that has wheels and an engine is on display in “Jay Leno’s Garage,” back Wednesday on CNBC. And he has a new game show, a syndicated reboot of “You Bet Your Life,” which debuted Monday. (Locally, it’s on the CW, KASN, weekdays at 5 p.m.

“Everything that went on ‘The Tonight Show’ was gravy,” Leno said. “So the fact that I have something to do is fun.”

“You Bet Your Life” first aired from 1950 to 1961 with famous comedian Groucho Marx, followed by a short-lived remake in 1992 with Bill Cosby. In the new version, Leno shares host duties with Kevin Eubanks, the former leader of the “Tonight” group who gleefully teased the comedian when a joke fell flat.

“People seem to love this camaraderie because we’re friends and we know each other,” Leno said.

One of the temporary jobs for Leno, guest judge on “America’s Got Talent” in 2019, had serious repercussions. He was convicted of making an unreleased joke about Koreans based on a racist stereotype, and then apologized.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Leno discussed following in the footsteps of a great comedy game show, what makes a good candidate, and the risks of topical humor. Notes have been edited slightly for clarity and brevity.

Why add game show to your plate?

It seems the time has come for this kind of show. It’s really light and it’s fun and has no politics involved. And it’s very diverse. We have people from all walks of life: Blacks, Whites, Nigerians, Indians. But there is never any stupid stereotypical nonsense, it’s just people getting together and trying to make some money. And it was really a lot of fun. We shoot six episodes a day and they just steal because it’s all improvised. I don’t see the competitors before the show. There is no public relations official who says, “Don’t mention the cocaine use or my client’s divorce. You don’t get any of that.

Candidates are more media savvy than they were in Groucho Marx’s day and more likely to perform on camera. How does this affect the show?

When you’re doing a show in LA, the cheapest and most efficient way to do it is to get people within 10 miles of the studio, (and) if they’re not in show business, they have a link with this one. In the last year, we’ve sent pollsters to Florida, Louisiana, everywhere, and we’ve flown people in. We choose the ones that look like characters. And you really see when they come in here they’re like, “This is my first time in LA and oh my God.” There is an excitement and nervousness that you don’t feel in people who run into Brad Pitt every day at the grocery store.

You were a kid when “You Bet Your Life” aired. Did watching Marx inspire you as a comedian?

He’s always been my favorite brother Marx because I’ve never been a ‘put on a funny hat, throw a pie’ kind of actor. I’ve always liked people with verbal skills: Bob Newhart, Johnny Carson. I liked people who looked normal but said funny things, instead of putting on costumes. I liked the Marx Brothers movies, but I liked Groucho because he was the wise man.

Do you miss the animation of a late night show and the forum it gave you for comedy?

It was very fun. I enjoyed doing the monologue, it’s my favorite part. And I appreciate everyone that’s out there now. I watch the monologues, and I don’t watch the interviews too much, because I talked to this guy (the celebrity). But I really appreciate how hard it is to make a different version of the same joke every night. Because let’s be honest, the news doesn’t change much from one day to the next. It changes from week to week. And then you have to watch all the other shows, make sure you don’t have the same joke as Conan or Samantha Bee or whatever.

You said the comedy doesn’t change, but the targets change. When you look back at the jokes that have attracted criticism, do you say ‘those were the days’ or do you scowl?

When people were in the news, you were making jokes on the news. I can give you a good example. When Amy Winehouse, who was on “The Tonight Show,” sang that song on “I Won’t Go To Rehab,” there were a lot of jokes about it. Then she died and people said, “Jay Leno made a joke.” But I did it with her blessing, she was there (on ‘Tonight’) when I did. But, you know, you only live in the time that you live.

For years, I watched the “Gilmore Girls” TV show and thought about how fun it would be to live in a town like the little one featured on that show.

This city is a fictional representation of a city in Connecticut. Being the fall lover that I am, this city makes me nostalgic at this time of year.

But what I really love about the show and the fictional city is that there’s always something going on. There are the most amazing festivals and celebrations for anything and everything and there are always a lot of lovely people, albeit a little bit crazy, doing crazy things.

As I stood on the grounds of the Municipal Building in downtown Sherman on Saturday, I was struck by the fact that I didn’t have to walk away.

Grayson County is a big, and growing, Star’s Hallow.

This place is alive with festivals from around Easter to New Years. From the time the low temperatures go above freezing until after New Years, this place celebrates everything under the sun with a kind of carefully orchestrated party and wonderfully presented in public. From small town soccer games to pumpkin patch fields to Christmas tree farms and an entire lake full of summer fun, we’ve got it all.

Kevin Harvick has undoubtedly had a frustrating 2021 season. After winning an impressive nine times in 2020, the 2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion hasn’t made a journey to victory this year. In Saturday night’s race in Bristol, Stewart-Haas Racing’s No.4 car came out on top to claim the first victory. However, Chase Elliott had something to say about it.

The defending champion objected to a Harvick decision late in the race that resulted in a tire cut and ended his chances of victory. Elliott returned the favor, hitting Harvick several laps later, then positioned himself strategically in front of him, allowing Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kyle Larson to catch up and claim the victory. After the race, a hot Harvick took on Elliott on the pit lane for everyone to see. He then cursed the incident on national television, and then, a few minutes later, confronted Elliott again and threatened him with retaliation.

Wayne Rooney admitted he was left in the dark about the impending Derby County administration, admitting he found out about the news while watching TV.

It was announced late Friday night that the Rams made the “difficult decision” to file a director nomination notice without identifying new owners and the continued impact of COVID-19 on revenue streams blamed for the situation “without choice”.

Rooney, 35, is in his first leadership role at Pride Park and has also confirmed that he has yet to speak with President Mel Morris.

When asked how he feels about the news, Rooney told talkSPORT: “Disappointment. I felt like something was going to happen.

“When you first heard this news, my first feeling was the disappointment and how upsetting it is for the fans because it is so hard to take.

“Also for me and the players it’s a difficult position for all of us.

It’s a sad situation for Derby

“We have to act with pride and dignity and do our job to try to make this club attractive to potential investors.”

Rooney revealed he found out about the news while watching Sky while speaking to the sports broadcaster ahead of Derby’s clash with Stoke at Pride Park.

“I saw him on Sky,” Rooney told Sky Sports ahead of Saturday’s home game against Stoke in the Sky Bet Championship.

“I spoke to (CFO) Stephen Pearce afterwards, but at first I saw him on TV. I spoke to Stephen, I did not speak to Mel. I’m sure he has other things on his mind.

A 12-point penalty will soon arrive at Derby and put them at the bottom of the table, despite being already under a transfer embargo with the potential for additional points to be deducted for breaking EFL financial rules.

Former Manchester United and England striker Rooney has insisted his players will try not to let uncertainty over the club’s future affect their preparation for Stoke’s visit.

He added: “You could see this morning that it was a bit flat because I wasn’t getting all the information, the players had no information and they saw it on Sky as well.

“I spoke to the players and we have to be professional. We know that we are in a difficult position and that there will be a point deduction ahead, but we have to do our job.

“Derby is a huge club and I have to get the players to play and make it attractive for potential investors to come to the football club.”

CI students and alumni are working with fellow British alumni of Wrigley Media Group to produce “Relative Justice,” the first nationally broadcast television show recorded in Kentucky.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (UK Public Relations) – Students who dreamed of making their mark in the entertainment industry thought they had to go to Hollywood, New York or Atlanta. But 10 students and alumni of the University of Kentucky’s College of Communication and Information (CI) added their names this summer to the credits of a new nationwide reality TV show without ever leaving Lexington.

“Relative Justice,” which premiered earlier this week on Monday, September 13, is the first nationally-broadcast television show recorded in Kentucky, and thanks to the college’s close ties to Wrigley Media Group (WMG) , students and alumni of Lexington. were an integral part of the production team.

“Working on a nationwide show was amazing in itself, but being able to be a part of something like this here in Kentucky was even better,” said CI alumnus Katie Sam Smith. “I am so happy that I was able to be part of something that not only launched my career, but also benefited my home country by providing job opportunities and supporting local businesses. “

“Relative Justice” (check your local listings) is a family-based unscripted court show that “moves drama from the family room to the courtroom.” With 150 episodes of over 200 cases, viewers can expect a wide range of conflict and emotions, all from real people with genuine disputes, chaired by Justice Rhonda Wills, a Houston lawyer.

WMG is a full-service content creation company founded by Misdee Wrigley that works on everything from short web series to lengthy network programming. The company recently converted the old Cinemark Woodhill Movies 10 into a full multimedia production facility, and the “Relative Justice” recording took place there from May to August.

“The industry is changing to allow you to produce quality television and movies anywhere in the world that you can then deliver to networks,” said Ross Babbit, WMG Content Director and Executive Producer of “Relative Justice”. “Misdee Wrigley decided to invest in this community because she believes, and I believe, we all believe, that Lexington is the next hot spot for television and film production.”

The production of the first season of “Relative Justice” saw a team of show veterans half-short and half the inhabitants of Lexington. Along with other UK alumni, CI alumni and current students, many students from the Media Arts and Studies (MAS) program made up a good part of the Lexington team:

  • Ross Allen (communication, 2019) is a full-time WMG production specialist and has played a key role. He made sure all the equipment on the set was working properly and was ready to fire. This involved not only correcting technical failures, but also perfectly adapting the lighting to each plaintiff, defendant and their accessories.
  • Brianna Bellomo (MAS, 2021) was a stage production assistant. His daily responsibility was to set the scene. This included preparing each complainant on the show and reporting them at the start of each case.
  • Sydney Carroll (MAS senior) was an office production assistant / runner. She worked with the executive in charge of production, kept records of winners, ensured guests were paid, and documented expenses on filming days. In post-production, she helped organize the show’s air dates and watched the first cuts, before airing.
  • Will Casada (MAS, 2021) was a production office assistant and worked in craft services. He was responsible for all food handling, from serving breakfast and grocery shopping to planning catered lunches.
  • Jack Dillender (MAS senior) was a control room production assistant. His main responsibility was to communicate with the remote producers and the showrunner. He also got TV ready remote witnesses via Zoom.
  • Maurice Fleming (MAS, 2020) was a stage production assistant. He helped maintain the set, escorted audience members on and off the stage, gave directions to litigants, assisted the prop master, and made sure everyone on set was following the orders of the director.
  • Austin Iannone (MAS, 2021) was the audience coordinator. He recruited audience members, greeted and briefed audience members on their appearance, and made sure each day of filming saw a full gallery of engaged audience members.
  • Simon Relford (MAS, 2020) and Tatum Tucker (MAS, 2021) were creative production assistants. They each worked in groups of three with a producer and an associate producer to find interesting cases for the show. It has required the online and in-person amalgamation of a diverse group of people, from Lexington to Cuba. Once chosen, guests were booked, their stories pitched, and their legal work finalized before they could appear on the show.
  • Katie Sam Smith (MAS, 2021) was responsible for COVID-19 compliance. She was tasked with keeping production running during a pandemic. This included applying social distancing and mask-wearing protocols, tracking employee and visitor vaccination cards, and overseeing COVID-19 testing for crew, talent, litigants and the public.

Although CI’s alumni and students had no experience working on a hearing show, their diligence and eagerness to learn impressed Lou Dennig, another executive producer of “Relative Justice.”

“British students compare themselves 100% to the ‘Emerson Mafia’ and the people at Syracuse University in Los Angeles,” Dennig said, referring to his experience as a guest lecturer at major communication universities. “I hadn’t realized that the UK also had such a comprehensive program. And clearly the training that the students get in the UK is world class because people have come in, they have stepped up and they have done a great job.

For many CI alumni and current students of the Relative Justice team, the relevant training they received in the UK came from Kyra Hunting, Assistant Professor at the School of Journalism and Media. Hunting had the opportunity to watch his students in action as a member of the audience. Denning took advantage of a break in recording to lead the entire team in a round of applause for Hunting’s positive impact on the future of media.

“It was incredibly rewarding to be able to watch our talented and dedicated students in their element on set,” said Hunting. “The students who worked on this program were some of our best – creative, enthusiastic and professional – and it was so special to be able to see all the potential I saw in the classroom at work as they helped make a series. television that will be seen nationwide. Our students are as prepared and talented as students from anywhere in the country, and it was wonderful to see them have the opportunity to prove it and start their journey in the industry.

Real-world career experiences have been an integral part of CI, and WMG has been a strong partner in helping to train students as interns for several years. CI and WMG are working to grow their relationship to include even more opportunities such as “relative justice”. The hope is that the best and brightest professional media students can have a “Hollywood” career here in their home country.

In the Lexington area, “Relative Justice” airs on the CW Network Monday through Friday at 9:00 am EDT. For more information, visit www.relativejustice.tv.
