Nielsen Retracts Data Suggesting Record Espn Subscriber Loss

Nielsen Retracts Data Suggesting Record Espn Subscriber Loss
Nielsen has retracted data issued last week after coming under fire from Espn for suggesting cable networks suffered alarming declines to their subscriber counts.

The measurement company is re-crunching its numbers from its monthly “Cable Network Coverage Areas Universe Estimate” for November, which clients received Friday. Nielsen uses its national panel to estimate the number of households that receive cable channels like Espn, CNN, and others.

Amid client complaints over perceived inaccuracies, Nielsen released the following statement:

“Nielsen is investigating a larger than usual change in the November 2016 Cable Network Coverage Area Household and Persons Universe Estimates (versus the prior month). We take the accuracy of our data very seriously and are conducting a thorough analysis to determine whether or not there is an issue with these estimates. We are working closely with our clients and will update them as soon as the analysis is complete.”

The data in question suggested Espn lost a record 621,000 subscribers over

The Great British Bake Off 2016, episode four – as it happened

The BBC lost Bake Off this week, so things can only get batter. Or can they?

9.02pm BST

Well that was a rollercoaster, as Ronan Keating might weakly describe it. It’s been a hard few days; but it is batter week since we shall see each other again, so stay strong. Thanks for all your comments! They are very entertaining and quite distracting while I’m trying to work.

If you need practical advice on how to process the news, don’t come to me because I’m useless. But I am available for pictures of goats and silly jokes. Come say hi on twitter or even Insta which is how the kids say it.

In the beginning of the episode Casey is furious that the alderman he assisted last week is skimming profits off a charity.

TV Review: Frontline’s ‘Outbreak’

TV Review: Frontline’s ‘Outbreak’
Crafted like a cinematic thriller, Frontline’s “Outbreak” perhaps appropriately shares its title with a 1995 movie, although the situations and stakes here are all too sobering and real. A tick-tock of events surrounding the eruption of Ebola in Africa, and a cautionary tale regarding future pandemics, this hourlong documentary vividly captures the toll the disease exacted, and identifies factors that contributed to the slow global response. Deftly weaving together interviews with survivors, front-line medical personnel and experts, it’s a strong hour to kick off a run of original docs from the PBS franchise throughout May.

“Ebola was not an exception. Ebola is a precedent,” World Health Organization official Dr. Bruce Aylward observes near the end, suggesting that the information gleaned from what happened needs to be studied so as not to repeat the missteps in future crises. Those included, but weren’t limited to: overrun medical facilities; misinformation and

Paul Thomas Anderson Says Superhero Movies "Get A Bad Rap"

Paul Thomas Anderson is having a good morning. While his "Inherent Vice" probably deserved a couple more nods, the filmmaker was Oscar nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Costume Designer Mark Bridges was honored for his work on the movie. Indeed, both the content and look of the film captured Thomas Pynchon's freewheeling, weirdo noir tale, and the picture marks another distinct effort from the director. Indeed, as we've heard many times over the past year, these are the kinds of movies studios should invest in. And lo! The sky is falling with the glut of superhero movies on the way! But guess what? Paul Thomas Anderson doesn't want to hear it. "Ah, that's such a fucking crock of shit," he told Rolling Stone. "I can't remember a year in recent memory where there were less complaints about the quality of movies. And what's wrong with superhero movies, you know?

Forget 2015, is 2016 going to be the biggest movie year ever?

Forget 2015, is 2016 going to be the biggest movie year ever?
There has been a lot of scuttlebutt over the past week or so about what a terrible summer it's been for the movies. Box office is down and there appears to be a dearth of real blockbusters on the horizon. It's led to some predictable "The sky is falling!" stories from media looking for something scandalous to write about. Well, take a deep breath, people. Hollywood knew this summer was weak months ago. The movie business is a creative business and unless there are movies people are dying to see, it can only sustain a certain level of success. 2014 has a long way to go, however. From "Guardians of the Galaxy" to "Gone Girl" to "Interstellar" to "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" to "Exodus: Gods and Kings" to the final "Hobbit" movie, there are a ton of broad hits on the way that could make an impact on pop culture (and

Box-Office: ‘Transformers 4’ Is The First Movie Of The Summer To Repeat At #1, On A Non-Spectacular July 4th Weekend

Uh oh, the box office is down about 45% from last year’s July 4th weekend. The sky is falling! Ok, maybe not so much, but a malaise has certainly kicked in with audiences and they aren’t connecting with these films. This time last year, the July 4th weekend sold $220 million worth of tickets (a 12% increase from 2012). It did so on the backs of “Despicable Me 2” and even the flop of the “Lone Ranger” (which couldn’t crack $30 million in its opening weekend). Fast forward to 2014, and it’s not looking hot in comparison at all. Why is? that Well, despite those that actually love Michael Bay/love to hate-watch Michael Bay, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” fell a rather substantial 64% in its second week. It sounds like some people finally read those negative reviews, and the explosion-happy audience already went last weekend. Of course, ‘Age Of Extinction’ has earned $401 million overseas.

Steven Soderbergh on the State of Cinema: Yeah, he's really retiring from Hollywood -- Video
It’s totally fair to call Steven Soderbergh’s keynote address on the State of Cinema at the San Francisco International Film Festival a rant. After all, he did. The filmmaker, who came of age during the halcyon Down and Dirty Pictures days of 1990′s nascent indie movement, has expressed his increasing frustration about being boxed-in by the studio’s increasing reliance on blockbuster tentpoles. “I’ve been in meetings where I can feel it slipping away, where I can feel that the ideas I’m tossing out, they’re too scary or too weird,” he told the festival audience.

Marc Alan Fishman: DC Entertainment – Trouble Every Day

Did you hear? Did you hear? The sky is falling! That’s right! There’s no time to pack a bag. Just grab your cell phone and head towards my car. Now get in! Call your loved ones. Tell them to do the same. Where are we going? How the hell should I know? They just told me to grab you and leave, leave, leave!

Wait, hold on. I just got a text. Shut up, I know I shouldn’t text and drive. But I can’t help it, we’re in the middle of a crisis! I’m not sure which crisis. The sky is white, so it’s not Crisis on Infinite Earths. The sky isn’t red, so it’s not Final Crisis. The sky isn’t upside down, so it’s not Flashpoint.

Oh. Oh! Ok, this makes sense. Yup. DC is going belly up. No,

Defending 'The Hobbit': We Explain What the Critics Are Missing

Footage from "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" screened last week in Las Vegas to movie theater owners and some journalists ... and shockingly, the reaction was not so positive. The sky is falling — but at least it looks incredibly sharp and realistic.

Too realistic, it seems.

The 10-minute clip was the first high-profile look at a movie at 48 frames per second (fps) instead of the standard 24 fps — and publicity turned sour as some reported the footage was so sharp it was distracting to watch.

"It looked like a made-for-tv movie," wrote The Los Angeles Times. "It was too accurate, too clear."

They're entitled to their opinion, but we have proof the criticism is premature — and possibly a moot point.

What does 48 fps actually mean?

When we watch film, we see 24 images each second, flashing before our eyes, just like when we draw pictures in the corner of a book, one each page,

Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World Poster And Trailer

The sky is falling in the new poster and trailer for the pre-apocalyptic comedy Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World starring Golden Globe Award winner Steve Carell and Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley.

(via Yahoo! Movies)

Set in a too-near future, the movie explores what people will do when humanity’s last days are at hand. As the respective journeys of Dodge (Mr. Carell) and Penny (Ms. Knightley) converge, the two spark to each other and their outlooks – if not the world’s – brighten.

Lorene Scafaria, who wrote the original screenplay, is making her feature directorial debut with the film. She wrote the screenplay adaptation for the 2008 feature Nick & Norah.s Infinite Playlist, also for Mandate, which starred Michael Cera and Kat Dennings.

Focus Features holds U.S. distribution rights to Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, which is being co-financed by Indian Paintbrush and Mandate Pictures.

Movie News After Dark: Great Gatsby, George Lucas, A Cloudy Sequel and 2011: The Cinescape

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly thing about movies. No big deal. We begin tonight with a new image from The Great Gatsby featuring Leo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton looking quite dapper. One can only imagine how much more dapper this will all look when we see it for the first time in 3D. I like the word dapper. Last year, The Golden Globes learned that finding a comedian with a bit of edge can be dangerous and good for your ratings. This year, the Independent Spirit Awards is following suit… Or, wait, cancel that. The Indie Spirits are going to be filled with stoner humor. Seth Rogen is hosting. He will undoubtedly laugh a lot, though. In the world of theater there’s a new thing called ‘Tweet Seats’ where you can come and Tweet through a performance. It sounds like an awful idea, as

But these are no mere space rocks. They are containers, vessels carrying within them a collection of vicious alien creatures. And the only people who know the truth, the only ones who can stem the tide, are a group of five teenage thugs.The debut feature from frequent Edgar Wright collaborator Joe Cornish - the duo worked together on the script for Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg's upcoming Tintin - Attack The Block is a sort of modern day Goonies, only with the...

Review: Surprise - Madonna's 'W.E' isn't god awful

Review: Surprise - Madonna's 'W.E' isn't god awful
Toronto - Something peculiar happened at the press screening for Madonna's "W.E" this morning at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.  Unlike, the packed first showing at the Venice Film Festival less than two weeks ago, there were no unexpected irruptions of laughter.  And you didn't have press passionately ripping the drama as they walked out of the theater.  In fact, the reaction was much more subdued.  Granted, the Venice reaction scared away many of the industry and press who might have seen it (about 40% of the theater was full), but there was no flurry of "The sky is falling!...
