Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. From fourth quarter 2012 to fourth-quarter 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

TNT has picked-up another new season of the drama, ‘The Last Ship’, ordering 13 new episodes for next season which is five more than this current first season. It also renewed another season of ‘Major Crimes’ and ‘Falling Skies’. “TNT’s refreshed and recharged drama brand is soaring this summer, and that is due in large part to these three enormously popular dramas,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “’The Last Ship’ has become this summer’s top drama among key adult demos with its epic scale and visceral storytelling. ‘Major Crimes’ continues to be one of the most enduring and popular crime-drama franchises on television. And ‘Falling Skies’ has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year’s climactic final season.”

Daytime Battle Between The Talkies
The battle lines have been drawn. After 17 years, ABC’s ‘The View’ is being seriously challenged by the 4-year-old CBS’ ‘The Talk’. The older-skewing ‘The View’ continues to draw more viewers than ‘The Talk’ though the gap was tighter last week (2.82 million to 2.66 million). However, for the first time in its four-year history, CBS Daytime ‘The Talk’ is more popular in key demographics than the show that inspired it, ABC’s ‘The View’. Per Nielsen estimates for July 8-13, ‘The Talk’ averaged 484,000 Women 18-49 (rising 38% week-to-week) while ‘The View’ attracted 454,000 Women 18-49. The CBS show also prevailed in Adults 25-54 (667,000 viewers to 606,000 viewers), jumping up 60% from the previous week.
CraveOnline is partnering with TNT’s ‘The Last Ship’ to throw an offline/online Comic-Con happening, called CraveOnline Conquers The Con. For the companies’ third collaboration, an event will be held on the USS Midway (formerly CVA-41), now a floating museum docked in San Diego, to go along with the theme of the show. CraveOnline readers can keep up on all Comic-Con events in branded takeovers by TNT.
