Mornin! This is Sean McNulty (connect with me on LinkedIn here if ya like), and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on THURSDAY February 9, 2023.
Where Biden’s State of the Union numbers fell about 30% to 27 Million viewers on Tuesday night… although I’m pretty sure Iger’s DISNEY Earnings Call probably had a greater share in LA & NY yesterday. And about the same 18-34 year old audience share.
AND: The EMMYS will be Mon, Sept 18 on FOX this Fall. Noms come out on July 12.
ALSO: TWITTER will allow $8 a month Blue subscribers to send 4,000 character tweets. Yeah that should do it.
IN TODAY’S EDITION:
A lot of DISNEY headlines yesterday (Frozen sequel!! 😱) - take a #medianerd🤓 look inside the Streaming business numbers (and not great Q4 Advertising descriptions), as those misguided “Disney catches Netflix subscribers” headlines from 2022 will age about as well as “Dewey defeats Truman”.
and yes, #MediaNerd looked more like this 🤯 last night.
DISH doubles down on the FAST market.
AMAZON & BLUMHOUSE are teaming up Nicole Kidman & Jamie Lee Curtis for series based on popular book series.
