Since its inception, TV has demonstrated the power to enact positive social change — from political elections to humanitarian crises and beyond. Today, with the medium ballooning in prevalence and an ever-expanding slate of programming available to audiences all over the world, television has arguably become the mightiest arbiter of pop culture and society at large.
To that end, the eighth annual Television Academy Honors, held May 27 at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, has chosen to celebrate six programs that best exemplify the facility of the smallscreen to inspire, educate and raise awareness of social injustices: “Black-ish” (“Crime and Punishment” episode from ABC); E:60 Presents “Dream on: Stories of Boston’s Strongest” (Espn); “The Normal Heart” and “Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert” (both HBO); “Transparent” (Amazon); and Netflix’s “Virunga,” exec produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Ernie Johnson sure is a class act.
On Tuesday night at the Sports Emmys, the TNT host gave his award for best studio host to the daughters of late Espn anchor Stuart Scott, who lost his battle with cancer in January.

TNT’s Johnson knows a thing or two about fighting cancer. In 2006, he took a leave of absence during his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He later returned as host of the Emmy-winning show “NBA on TNT” alongside Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.
Scott’s daughters attended the 36th Sports Emmys on behalf of their father, who was honored for his service and dedication to sports media.

But then you’d miss the subtle, sometimes hilarious subtext of Blake, Pharrell, Adam and especially Xtina when they deliberately avoid comments about actual singing — turning everything to pure comedy in the process. (Sample critique: Ms. Aguilera’s “You’ve got that girl-vote goin’ for ya” after mega-hot Corey Kent White hit maybe 60 percent of his notes at best while covering a Jason Aldean ditty.)
Cannes – One of the most flamboyant new attendees at Mip TV, which kicks off Monday, should have been Mexico’s Grupo Centro Radio, which, with Cadena Tres, won one of Mexico’s two new free-to-air broadcast network licenses in a historic act of Mexican TV deregulation aimed at breaking the Televisa-Azteca broadcasting duopoly.
Dream on. Centro Radio has now lost the license it won in a May’s government auction. Both license winners, Grupo Centro Radio and Cadena Tres, were given a month to pay their bids for 20-year licenses, awarded March 11. In a filing on Friday to the Mexican Stock Exchange, Radio Centro confirmed that it “did not make the payment stemming from the awarding of an over-the-air broadcast license.” It committed to cover the bid security deposit “through previously contemplated liquidity operations.”
