"Yes this is our ninth episode and we launched a year ago this week Dan. It's been a lot of fun slackers. What's up with those other weeks? Why did we not do three podcasts? Fourth of July thanksgiving dude. We are a bunch of slackers. Miss you our listeners. I apologize and in advance. We apologize for what may potentially be a slightly slow episode of TV's vs top five dude. Slow there's a ton of things going on. Dan was that a transition to our first topic. It was number one so since we took last week there were a lot of headlines that came through over the holidays as ten to happen with the preholiday news dump. So we're GONNA change things up and instead of doing headlines IT lands to start. We're actually going to do that as a whole segment this week. Just because there's a lot of like a whole hodgepodge of things going on Dan or because there's nothing else major going on one of the other. Well Dan why don't you start off with news that are fine. Listeners may have missed over the holiday break yes indeed. You may have missed this unless you have a very very sensitive news news. Alerts set up for Be for her DC entertainment president. Diane Nelson is out at Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman Startup. qube after less than a year she is is the third high-profile exact to depart the service ahead of its April launch joining. Janice men are former boss and Tim Connolly. I don't know that there's there's a point of doing a what the bleep is up with qube segment given the Qube doesn't exist. But Leslie what the bleep is up with qube. I mean the third executive departure third major exact exact departure before it's April launched. It's not a good sign. I don't know that we know exactly what was behind. Diane Nelson's decision to leave but it doesn't reflect very well L. unclogging. It's funny because I feel like I have more and more of a sense of what qube actually is and I guess I appreciate that because when we first did our first qube related segment on this podcast. I didn't even know it. St It stands for Quick Bites. We'll go back to see her reaction. I wish our listeners could see the look of shock on your face when I said that it what it stood for I it opened my eyes and made me realize the things name really should be pronounced Kwa by and other other than that Yes that's all I've got no that no I remain sort of perplexed by this service because it's one of those things where it feels to me like like either. It's going to turn out to be this thing that there's a huge appetite for and because I'm old I don't fully recognize it. We're alternatively the people who have started and they're old and they think that there's a need for it and they have not correctly anticipated what it's going to be and the fact that this is going to be a not cheap subscription service with no library content to start off with but a lot of original stuff that they basically want you to watch on the subway or or in dull moments in business. Meetings is all a lot of big top stars and big name producers to. It's it's going to be a very interesting experiment and I think probably in a perfect world we wouldn't be hearing about any of this bumpiness and because of the big names attached. That's why we're hearing about it but anyway we are still perplexed by what the bleep is up with Qube. What what else did people miss last week? Leslie while speaking of executive departures another network president is out at Warner media.

Chris Lynn cinemax President Carry Anthony Lewis as exacts who departed the company. And you L.. Look in the larger sense. We've talked about this. Many Times. But industry consolidation in the executive ranks has been a continuing theme over the last couple of years as a lot of these big companies consolidate to to better prepare for the streaming future. Especially like when you look at Viacom I mean I feel like I have a PhD in writing about the game of executive musical chairs going on over there so and we are going to talk more about that later because if there's any topic that's more sexy than streaming wars and overall overall deals it's industry consolidation will get more to later in other holiday news dump information.

Of course one of the four adult mandated shows for Marvel at Hulu picked up earlier this year all the others including Howard the duck remain on track or look over at HBO.

Gt judges including Sharon Osborne and Howard Stern with the the ladder calling the Simon callow produce talent show a quote unquote boys club and if anyone would know to recognize a so called boys club it would be Howard stern yeah. Stern spent four seasons as a judge on talent. And here's a quote. He says quote he sets it up that the men stay no matter how ugly they are no matter how old they are no matter or how fat they are no matter how talentless they are and that's of course Howard Stern talking about Simon Cowles selection of the judge's panel he went on to say quote he replaces the hot chicks with hotter chicks and younger. Chicks Howie Mandel is doing a fine serviceable job. Why don't they change him? And why don't they change Simon. This is the ultimate example of a boys club. Time's up and other. Prominent actresses and show runners have voiced their support for union. This is as we often say. In circumstances like this on ongoing going situation that we will surely monitor. I think it is an interesting thing for any variety of reasons those particularly being that. Adt remains remains a remarkably successful summer franchise for NBC. They did a spin off of it. America's got talent champions this year by I only know that existed because they sent us a box with international cookies and candy So that we knew that it was the thing and look I. I'M NOT GONNA lie. The breaking of the story was the the First Time I knew that Gabrielle Union was on America's got talent but this is just a reflection of how much TV there is an how easy it is for something like this to get pushed under my radar and it probably shouldn't because it points to reports to where we are as a as an industry and where the conversation has been. Certainly Simon cowl has always been celebrated for being irascible and for being crass crass and whatever you WanNa say eh brand. It's his brand. It's made him not just millions. It's made him presumably hundreds of millions literally at this point and so the conversation as to whether different things were happening on this show beyond what he's always done. I think you're going to be interesting to find out but I think it also is an entirely reasonable change in industry standards to say no. This is actually the SYS- non-acceptable and so yeah and you you don't you don't screw with Gabrielle Union. I I know only I know only a few things about her but I know that she is not someone you want to mess with. And so if she steve is feeling like she had a thing to stand up for herself on here I assume probably that she's correct. Yeah and it's also an example of how our culture has changed since Simon callow. I came came onto the scene. I mean you know and look. We should admit here that we don't know what the center of the investigation is darn thing that hasn't come out yet. I think it's a safe presumption to make that. Our culture has changed to the point where it may not be feasible for Simon Cowell to be the same Simon cowl that he has been over the last couple of years ars or just in general you know the thing he made his brand off of is not a thing that even the show. He made his brand on at least in the United States can do the same way. American idol. When it premiered it was all about Simon cowl insulting people and everyone was like ha so funny? Look at all the people who are coming in who Simon it is taunting for how they look and how they sound. And he's the big meany and all of that and if you go and actually watch the current version of American idol such as it exists and some people will be shocked to know that its third season on. ABC is actually premiering this winter. Three is that true. I believe it is true. It is so much more a a big hearted inspirational whatever show than it used to be so even the show that he made his name on is not that show anymore so things are changing and we will follow this one as we go. Yes up third in business news. CBS and Viacom's Remerger has officially closed the newly named Viacom.
