REDEF Original: There Isn't Too Much TV

REDEF Original: There Isn't Too Much TV | Television Tribune | Scoop.it
Today’s original series aren’t being cancelled because there’s “too much TV” or because they’re not “good enough”. The problem is the industry’s business models and metrics, neither of which have been updated to the on-demand, digital era. Until that changes, it will only get worse.

MIPTV Deals Wrap: Scripted, Non-scripted and kids deals galore; Digital here to stay | | MIPBlogMIPBlog | Television Tribune | Scoop.it

Business was frantic at MIPTV 2013. Here are the stand-out deals, from the official post-show Quick Review.
 

Every part of the world was active, and there was clear evidence that digital and on-demand dealmaking is now a robust moneymaking business.

 

A+E Networks was quick out of the blocks, announcing a slew of sales for its record-breaking factual entertainment series Duck Dynasty. The show, which recently attracted 8.6 million viewers for the US launch of season three, has sold to the likes of TV3 Denmark, Pro4 Hungary, VeronicaNetherlands, MediaCorp Singapore and OLN Canada. A+E also finished the MIPTV market strongly by unveiling a production, distribution and acquisitionpartnership with Canal+-owned Planete+.

The Nielsen Family Is Dead | Underwire | Wired.com | Television Tribune | Scoop.it
From Game of Thrones to the new Arrested Development, television is better than ever. And it's not just a lucky accident. Turns out that networks and advertisers are using all-new metrics to design hit shows.
Meri Peltola's insight:

Very good points. Social media and DVR have profoundly changed the way in which television contents are consumed.

TV Pilots: What the Network Orders Reveal About Current Hits and Misses

TV Pilots: What the Network Orders Reveal About Current Hits and Misses | Television Tribune | Scoop.it

Last year was supposed to be the year of rebuilding. The landscape had two new chiefs in ABC’s Paul Lee and NBC’s Bob Greenblatt looking to put their stamp on their respective networks, and spend big they would need to do. But 12 months later, that desire to stock up on potential hits hasn’t slowed, with the pilot total nearing 100 -- when younger skewing CW’s eight orders are factored in -- after a lackluster broadcast season devoid of any true home runs. Even CBS, which stumbled some with this past season’s freshman efforts, ratcheted up its orders, with 23 pilots compared with last year’s 16. A review of the orders reveals a continued reliance on formats, adaptations and high-concept fare. Notes one source, “Anything that’s going to give them a leg up in promoting the show.”

TV reruns drawing fewer viewers

TV reruns drawing fewer viewers | Television Tribune | Scoop.it
Prime-time network reruns, once a reliable source of ratings and advertising revenue, are losing their appeal as the entertainment landscape becomes more crowded with options.

 

A television viewership study released this week by RPA, a Santa Monica-based advertising agency, found that several long-term audience trends were reinforced during the most recent television season.

 

Key among them: Major networks struggle to hold onto younger viewers, two blockbuster shows witnessed an exodus of viewers, and reruns were less potent.

TV Is Not TV Anymore

TV Is Not TV Anymore | Television Tribune | Scoop.it
A revolution in how we watch was just the start. Now comes the good stuff.

 

As TV evolves, so does our way of watching—sometimes in two opposite directions at once. This spring has brought a good deal of pissing and moaning about how there’s too much good stuff to watch on Sunday nights—even though, in the DVR era, a one-night embarrassment of riches shouldn’t matter. But the rise of tweeting and recapping makes it matter (as the magazine’s TV critic explains, just to the right): In order to engage fully in the energized dialogue that’s taking place about TV, you pretty much have to watch shows the way your ancestors did—right when they air—or risk having your Monday ruined by a minefield of Internet spoilers. So given the luxury of personal convenience or the fun of instant web communality, which brave new world do you choose?

PRIMETIME PILOT PANIC: The Early Buzz

PRIMETIME PILOT PANIC: The Early Buzz | Television Tribune | Scoop.it

Back by popular demand: Deadline's Pilot Buzz lists. We’re earlier than normal this year while pilots have generally been late, with only a handful of them having cuts by now and the vast majority still in various stages of production. Therefore, everything on this list has to be taken with a gigantic grain of salt as a lot could change between a table read and a final cut.

 

Take NBC’s comedy pilot SAVE ME for example. After some mixed and even negative chatter early on, mostly related to the tone of the show, originally developed for Showtime, the tide changed completely over the last two days when people saw the completed pilot, which is getting high marks.

MIPTV: Adaptations Are the Charm for Global Broadcasters

MIPTV: Adaptations Are the Charm for Global Broadcasters | Television Tribune | Scoop.it

"As international television market MIPTV kicks off in Cannes next week, network and cable reps from the U.S. and around the world descend on the Cote d'Azur on the hunt for the next big foreign show to adapt and retool for their local markets.

 

These days that doesn't just mean the latest reality format or game show – genres long dominated by imported shows such asAmerican Idol (British) or The Voice (Dutch). There will be plenty of those on offer at MIP but now scripted drama and comedy formats, usually thought to be tricky to adapt, are in demand. The success of Showtime's Emmy-winning Homeland, adapted from an Israeli series, has opened the floodgates for international producers looking to export their ideas."

Meri Peltola's insight:

It would be awesome to see something completely original but I guess buying quirky foreign stuff is always a big gamble:

 

"Despite the boom in international formats on display at MIPTV this year, much of the wheeling and dealing looks likely to be dominated with renewals and licensing of catalog product. Or new shows that feel like old ones."

 

"The trend, if you can call it a trend – is that people are reworking already existing genres and existing shows. Almost everything “new” is set in something we already know and already is successful."

 

Sounds a lot like Hollywood, doesn't it?

Every 2013 Network Pilot | TheWrap TV

Every 2013 Network Pilot | TheWrap TV | Television Tribune | Scoop.it

Why are there more pilots this year than last? Because CBS stepped up its number of pilots in a big way, from 15 to 24. And NBC has two more this year than last, bringing its total to 26. The network has more pilots than any other.
 

Wondering which broadcaster landed Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy and Mira Sorvino? Where the stars and writers of "Lost" are now? What two networks each have a show called "Reckless"?
 

The answers to these and other questions are in the pilot grids below. They'll also help you ponder the most pressing question: Which pilots will become full-fledged series?

Meri Peltola's insight:

I love reading loglines for TV pilots. At first glance, most interesting to me seemed ABC's Reckless and Middle Age Rage; CBS's Untitled Jim Gaffigan Project; CW*s The Hundred; FOX's Untitled Bad Robot / J.H. Wyman Project, The Gabriels and Untitled Halpern / Schumacker Project (I liked the book); and NBC's About a Boy.

 

It'll be interesting to see, which shows make it.

TV Viewers Are Missing in Action: Prime-Time Ratings Bring Speculation of a Shift in Habits | Television Tribune | Scoop.it
Across the television landscape, viewing for all sorts of prime-time shows is down — chiefly among 18- to 49-year olds, the most important audience for the business.

 

It is the police procedural that has network executives scratching their heads this season: The Case of the Disappearing Viewers. In the four television weeks starting March 19, NBC lost an average of 59,000 viewers (about 3 percent) in that 18-to-49 age category compared with the same period last year, CBS lost 239,000 (8 percent), ABC lost 681,000 (21 percent) and Fox lost 709,000 (20 percent).
