(AP Photo/Jae C. Hong) The first call came in at 10:59 PT, and all of the broadcast networks had cut into programming by 11:45. Gov. Jerry Brown monitored the news, and President Obama was briefed. Each of the major L.A. stations, KCBS 2, KNBC 4, KTLA 5, KABC 7, KCAL 9 and KTTV 11, including CNN, MSNBC & FOX News began reporting live from the area soon after news of the shooting broke at approximately 2P (ET). The New York stations went live during the afternoon hours as well, and relied on their corporate affiliates in Los Angeles for local coverage, including Tribune’s WPIX with footage from KTLA. CNN featured aerial footage from KCAL/KCBS, as did Tribune’s WPIX. Fox News Channel’s video around 6:40 was from ABC-owned KABC. CBS’ Norah O’Donnell was about to hold a previously scheduled interview with President Obama about climate change but included talk of the shooting. In addition to O’Donnell, NBC’s Matt Lauer and Lester Holt; CNN’s Chris Cuomo; ABC’s Amy Roach and David Muir are on site in San Bernardino covering the on going news for their networks. 14 were killed and 21 injured.

CBS #1 Wednesday but FOX's 'Empire' top program

CBS #1 Wednesday but FOX’s ‘Empire’ top program with over 11.5 million viewers


The Tiffany Network pulled off an upset victory on Wednesday as it ran its regular schedule of programs with all new episodes. And it made a difference from the night before. At 8P, ‘Survivor Cambodia:Second Chance‘ continued its impressive run this season with an average 9.42 million viewers and a 5.6/9, tops for the network on Wednesday and the #2 program on the night, anywhere. At 9P, ‘Criminal Minds‘ with an episode titled ‘Internal Affairs’ finished with an average 8.75 million viewers and a 5.5/9. Then at 10P, a brilliant ‘Code Black‘ episode titled ‘Cardiac Support’ finished with an average 8.50 million viewers and a 5.5/9 and won its time slot. This was a MUST SEE TV ON DEMAND episode. It is that good. It may have surpassed the best of what ‘ER’ could ever bring.


The Animal Network of Broadcast had the power on Wednesday but fell to second. First at 8P, ‘Rosewood‘ with a great episode titled ‘Aortic Atresia and Art Installations’ was a cliff hanger and drew an average 5.04 million viewers and a 3.2/5. At 9P, ‘Empire‘ (‘Et Tu, Brute?’) once again was the nation’s top program with an average 11.81 million viewers and a 6.7/11. Yet for all the promise, technically it was not up to quality standards. For instance, Jamal’s Pepsi commercial looked, shall we say, poor. The way the show cuts to and from the spot made for amateur time and set a new low for the use of product placement.


The Alphabet Network finished poorly on Wednesday with all new programming. At 8P, ‘The Middle‘ finished with an average 7.64 million viewers 4.6/8. At 830P, ‘The Goldbergs‘ finished with an average 6.46 million viewers and a 3.8/6. At 9P, ‘Modern Family‘ with an episode titled ‘Clean Out Your Junk Drawer’ finished with an average 7.35 million viewers and a 4.4/7. Then at 930P, ‘Black-ish‘ finished with an average 5.45 million viewers and a 3.3/5. At 9P, ‘Nashville‘ with an episode titled ‘Three’s A Crowd’ finished with an average 4.17 million viewers 2.8/5. The biggest news of the evening at ABC was for one of the few times ever, ‘The Middle’ was the top program over ‘Modern Family’ when both programs ran first run episodes. Is the power shifting?


The Peacock Network had a bit of holiday tradition. At 8P, ‘Christmas In Rockefeller Center‘ which was LIVE to the Eastern and Central time zones, finished with an average 8.07 million viewers and a 5.1/8. At 9P, ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas‘ finished with an average 5.60 million viewers and a 3.3/5. At 930P, ‘Saturday Night Live Christmas‘ holiday themed special finished with an average 4.42 million viewers and a 2.7/5.


The #1 Hispanic Network in America finished with a solid Wednesday. At 8P, ‘Antes Muerta Que Lichita‘ finished with an average 2.375 million viewers and a 1.1/2. At 9P, ‘Pasión y Poder‘ finished with an average 2.276 million viewers and a 1.1/2. Aquella rivalidad que por años ha perdurado tiene su origen hace muchos años, cuando Arturo Montenegro y Eladio Gómez Luna se disputaban el amor de la bella Ana Laura. At 10P, ‘Yo No Creo En Hombres‘ finished with an average 2.081 million viewers and a 1.1/2.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t slugged it out with all new programming. And it had the power of ‘Arrow’. At 8P, ‘Arrow‘ with an episode titled ‘Legends of Yesterday’ finished wth an average 3.66 million viewers and a 2.1/3. It has redefined Wednesday for the Little One. At 9P, ‘Supernatural‘ with an episode titled ‘Just My Imagination’ finished with an average 2.00 million viewers and a 1.3/2.


The Avis of Hispanic Networks in America had one good program on Wednesday. At 8P, ‘Celia’ won the Hispanic time period with a HH rating of 1.2/2, finishing ahead of ‘Antes Muerta Que Lichita’. But at 9P, ‘Bajo el Mismo Cielo’ finished with a HH rating of 0.9/1 in the first half hour but increased to 1.0./2 in the second half hour. At 10P, ‘Señora Acero’ finished with a HH rating of a 0.9/2.

Late Night

At 1135P, NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ which finished #1 Wednesday evening with a 2.7/7. ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ finished #2 Wednesday with a 2.0/5. CBS’ ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ with a rerun finished with a 1.8/5. At 1235A, ABC’s ‘Nightline’ finished #1 early Thursday morning with a 1.4/5. NBC’s ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ with a rerun finished with a 1.2/4. CBS’ ‘Late Late Show with James Corden’ finished with a 0.9/3. At 135A, ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ with a rerun finished with an average 0.7/3.

For The Record

CBS finished #1 on Wednesday with an average 8.857 million viewers and a 5.6/9. FOX finished #2 with an average 8.28 million viewers and a 5.0/8. ABC finished #3 with an average 5.901 million viewers and a 3.7/6. NBC finished #4 with an average 5.788 million viewers and a 3.6/6. FOX News Channel finished with an average 5.102 million viewers.

The New Color For Next Year Is…
Global color authority Pantone turned softer with its 2016 color of the year to resonate with consumers looking to escape today’s stresses. This is the first time the organization has blended two shades—Rose Quartz and Serenity—for its annual proclamation. Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation in turbulent times. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.

Cyber Monday Sales Set A New Record, Hitting $3 Billion For The First Time.

Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday

In an article by Toni Fitzgerald, 120115, Cyber Monday marked the biggest online shopping day in history, as it was up 16.2% over last year, according to the Custora E-Commerce Pulse, which tracks web shopping trends. The big sales were no surprise. Online shopping has become mainstream, and just about every retailer offers some sort of Cyber Monday incentive to draw shoppers in, from free shipping to deep discounts.

What was perhaps most interesting about Cyber Monday was the distinct shopping patterns that are starting to develop, which media people can use to their advantage when planning and buying for clients. Some things resonate with shoppers, while others do not. Here’s a look at what was hot and what wasn’t on Cyber Monday.

Mobile shopping
Twenty-seven percent of Cyber Monday sales came on smartphones or tablets, Custora reports, up from 23 percent last year. People are still most likely to buy using Apple devices, such as iPhones and iPads, which accounted for 75.6 percent of all sales.

Buyers say clients were more interested in mobile ads this year because of this shift.

Email advertising
Though texting and instant messaging have replaced email as the e-communication methods of choice, email is still preferred for advertising. It drove 22 percent of all transactions on Cyber Monday, more than any other form of marketing.

Search and paid search
Search, both paid and unpaid, also sparked a huge portion of orders: 20.7 percent and 16.6 percent, respectively, ranking behind only email.

On the biggest e-shopping day of the year, the biggest pay site stumbled: PayPal was hit by so much traffic, it resulted in periodic outages. You’d expect this, perhaps, 10 years ago, when technology was still catching up to demand, but not in 2015.

When and Why Social Program Engagement Matters
Per a Nielsen study, new stats on social media use while watching TV:
► Today’s TV audiences often use social media while watching live series programs.#c|sdigitalnote 🇺🇸💻📱
► Twitter activity during live airings is so closely related to on-screen moments and stories that it was found to be indicative of the engagement of the general viewing audience.#c|sdigitalnote 🇺🇸💻📱
► Audiences see Tweets with higher frequency during live airings, suggesting that this could be a powerful time to promote and cross-promote programs through social media.#c|sdigitalnote 🇺🇸💻📱

*FOX Being Sued By ‘Bones’
One of the biggest programs on FOX over the years has been ‘Bones’. But bad blood between all parties seems to destine the show for a very bad ending. Reminiscent of James Garner suing Universal over his portion of profits of ‘The Rockford Files’,
the executive producer, the two main stars and the woman who wrote the novels that made the series possible, are all suing FOX. xecutive producer Barry Josephson has filed suit against 20th Century Fox Corporation, Fox Broadcasting Company, and Fox Entertainment Group, over accounting practices and alleged cancellation threats. Now, the long running TV series’ co-stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have followed suit, by filing suit. According to a Deadline report, Boreanaz, Deschanel, and executive producer Kathleen Reichs (the forensic anthropologist who wrote the Temperance Brennan novels upon which the TV show is based) “are going after the broadcaster too for ‘tens of millions’ they claim they are owed.”

Deadline cites the legal complaint:
“The documents that 20th TV did provide confirmed Plaintiffs’ suspicions and showed that they were being cheated out of more than $100 million in gross revenues and being overcharged many additional millions of dollars in alleged expenses,” the jury-trial complaint adds of the plaintiffs fight to get a look at true accounting of Bones after not getting anything in profits for several seasons.

“When 20th TV finally did engage with Plaintiffs in the fifth and sixth seasons of the Series, it did so under the threat of cancelling the Series unless Plaintiffs accepted its non-negotiable license fee figure, and then concealed material information about the true value of that figure,” Monday’s filing asserts, again in specifics very similar to what Josephson stated in his own complaint last week — all of which might see these cases share the same judge or jury if the courts think that they are related enough.

Deadline has archived the filing, here ( If you give it a look, notice (on page three) that over the course of the series, FOX has scheduled Bones in “seven different times periods spanning five different nights.” Even for a TV series in its eleventh season, that number of moves seems staggering.

As previously reported, while the new showrunner wants a 12th season of Bones, Boreanaz is looking forward to leaving the show after season 11 concludes production. When FOX will air the second half of season 11 is still up in the air.

James Garner concluded when he sued the studios, ‘About everything I ever have done, in the way of lawsuits against studios, I’ve won them all,’ he said, ‘because I was right every time. (Studios) would rather steal than do it right. And they might even make more money if they did it right. But it’s just not in their nature.’ (Los Angeles Times, ‘A Surviving Maverick : James Garner Has Won Lawsuits, Overcome Health Problems to Remain One of TV’s Top Stars’ December 02, 1990 DANIEL CERONE Times Staff Writer)

The Viacom Five flopped on Wednesday. At 8P, ‘GPs: Behind Closed Doors‘ could only draw 780,000 viewers and a 4% share. At 9P, ‘Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away‘ fell in its time slot with only 860,000 million viewers and a 4% share.
