Comcast Blasts Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios as ‘Serial Litigant’ in FCC Response

5 April 2016 8:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comcast has fired back to Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, calling the company a “serial litigant” and denying that it has failed to abide by its FCC obligations regarding carriage of minority-owned TV channels.

Entertainment Studios and the National Association of African-American Owned Media filed a petition with the FCC last month claiming that Comcast has failed to comply with commitments it made to the FCC as part of its 2011 acquisition of NBCUniversal. At that time, Comcast agreed to give broad carriage to 10 independently owned cable channels within 10 years of the merger’s closing. Four of those were to be majority owned by African-Americans.

Entertainment Studios claimed in its petition that two channels launched on Comcast to date — Magic Johnson’s Aspire and Sean Combs’ Revolt — were not majority owned by either Johnson or Combs. Comcast refuted that assertion in its April 4 response filing, noting that Combs and Johnson last »

Byron Allen Accuses Comcast, FCC of Violating NBCUniversal Merger Conditions

28 March 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated: Byron Allen’s National Association of African-American Owned Media has accused Comcast of violating key terms of its agreement with the FCC that paved the way for its 2011 acquisition of NBCUniversal.

The org filed a petition with the FCC late Friday outlining its assertion that Comcast has not complied with its promise to launch multiple new cable channels owned at least in part by African-Americans within eight years of the merger. Comcast strongly denied the claims made in the petition, calling the allegations “inflammatory, inaccurate and unsupported.”

The petition challenges the significance of the African-American ownership interests in Aspire, which counts Magic Johnson among its investors, and Sean Combs’ Revolt channel. Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios and the Naaaom have a lawsuit pending in federal court against Comcast charging racial discrimination in the cable giant’s failure to carry any of Entertainment Studios’ seven cable channels.

Garry Shandling: The Fake-Host With the Most

24 March 2016 4:56 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

R.I.P. to the one of the all-time comedy greats, Garry Shandling, who died suddenly of a heart attack today. Shandling created one of the most unforgettable monsters in TV history on The Larry Sanders Show, the legendary Nineties cult sitcom where he played a late-night talk-show host with an all-devouring ego and not a glimmer of compassion. Talk about ahead of its time: It pioneered the whole whiplash-fast "room full of bitter adults abusing each other at the same time" bile of sitcoms like Veep or Arrested Development. »
