Bill O’Reilly Harassment Allegations: The Murdochs Must Take Action to Preserve Fox’s Legacy

  • Indiewire
Even with the defection of more than 50 advertisers, Bill O’Reilly is weathering his latest sexual-harassment scandal. Ratings for “The O’Reilly Factor” are up, his new book “Old School” is a bestseller, and he just signed a rich new deal with Fox News Channel.

That makes this an even tougher test for corporate parent 21st Century Fox, and leaders James and Lachlan Murdoch. While O’Reilly is apparently immune to dishonor (and to fleeing sponsors, as long as his faithful viewers tune in), the corporation’s reputation is on the line. And the Murdochs haven’t done much to condemn the allegations of sexual harassment, or detail how they plan to expand efforts to make sure employees, and particularly women, feel safe in the workplace. A hotline isn’t enough.

Ironically, the company has recently made great strides in naming women to high-profile posts on the film side. Stacey Snider

TV on Tap: “Sharknado” Gets Even Bigger and ABC Family Orders More “Fosters”

News

With the nasty business of cancelling its two bubble dramas, ABC Family finally ordered more episodes of The Fosters and Twisted along with a third season of Switched at Birth. I’m relieved questions of “Where are they going with Jude?” won’t go unanswered like Huge fans’ questions about Alistair.

Lifetime has ordered a pilot about a staffer on a dating reality show whose job involves manipulating the cast to ensure drama. Former Buffy, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee writer Marti Noxon is tasked with the adaptation, which probably means I should brace myself.

When CBS CEO Les Moonves announced the renewal of Under the Dome, he dismissed critics’ concerns saying, “Why can’t they be under the dome for a long period of time? This is television!” NPR’s Linda Holmes explains how that comment illustrates the difference between broadcast and cable. At least cable execs understand

NBC Shifting ‘Revolution’ Season 1 Finale to June Instead of May

Those who tuned in to watch Revolution this past Monday, or recorded the most recent episode on your DVR, may have been confused by the presence of NBC News with Brian Williams. But the network chose to preempt the new episode in favor of coverage of the tragic bombings that happened during the Boston Marathon.

In the wake of the episode’s delay, the network had to figure out how to schedule the rest of season 1. Originally, the midseason return was playing all 10 remaining episodes in consecutive weeks leading up to the scheduled finale on May 27th. But now that schedule has changed.

While one of the options was to double up on episodes on one Monday before the finale, NBC has opted to shift their schedule to air the finale on June 3rd, making it one ...

Update: ‘Revolution’ Finale Pushed To June After Pre-Emption For Bombing Coverage

Update, 12 Pm: After considering different scenarios, NBC has opted not to double pump Revolution following the pre-emption of last night’s episode for a news special on the Boston bombings. Since the series had been slated for an originals-only run, the second-season finale, previously scheduled for May 27, will now air a week later, on Monday, June 3rd. Previous, Monday Pm: NBC is the only broadcast network to pre-empt its regular primetime lineup tonight for coverage of today’s deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. The Brian Williams-anchored news special at 10 Pm replaces an original episode of NBC’s freshman drama Revolution, which will now air next Monday. In addition to NBC News team’s desire to offer up-to-the-minute coverage of today’s events in NBC’s primetime on top of doing a wall-to-wall primetime coverage of the bombings on cable sibling MSNBC, I hear also influencing the pre-emption decision

'The Voice' hits season high for battle rounds

'The Voice' hits season high for battle rounds
The Voice continues to prove it’s a rising star for NBC as it launched into its battle rounds last night.

Monday’s two-hour episode edged up 2 percent to a season-high rating among adults 18-49. Airing against all-original competition, The Voice continued its rise with new judges coaches Usher and Shakira. Not only does this multi-week climb go against the usual post-premiere trend for TV shows, it also helps erode an early criticism of The Voice — that the show’s popularity drops once the chair-spinning blind auditions conclude.

If anything, one would have expected The Voice to go down tonight
