‘Good Morning America’ Will Launch Newsletter as Morning-tv Battle Goes Digital

ABC and NBC are marching to new kinds of screens in the eternal battle between “Good Morning America” and “Today” for A.M. viewers.

Good Morning America” is revamping the digital extensions of the flagship ABC morning program, said Michael Corn, the show’s senior executive producer, in an interview. While “Gma’s” digital presence has long been a part of a larger alliance between ABC News and Yahoo, this new effort represents an attempt to give fans of the program a more closely aligned site. “We had a very basic approach to digital before this, a meat-and-potatoes approach,” says Corn.

America’s Least-Liked TV Media Personality Is …

America’s Least-Liked TV Media Personality Is …
Poor Megyn Kelly. The host of the third hour of NBC’s “Today” show and of summer series “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” is America’s least-liked TV media personality, according to TheWrap‘s latest study of Q Scores.

Q Scores are an entertainment industry-used measurement of a celebrity or a brand’s likability based on semi-regular surveys of 25- to 54-year-olds. The higher the Positive Q Score, the more survey respondents marked the individual or company as being among their favorites. The lower — well, just ask Megyn.

Kelly, who jumped from a successful primetime show on Fox News last year to a lucrative new gig at NBC, has struggled a bit at her new network. As TheWrap previously reported, “Megyn Kelly Today” ratings in the key demo were down nearly 30 percent in January compared to 2017, when Tamron Hall and Al Roker co-hosted the “Today” hour.

While she has strong name recognition — her Familiarity score stands at a solid 41 — her Positive Q Score is a dismal 6.

Coming in just ahead of Kelly were three media stars with a Q Score of 8: Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s “Hardball” (with a Familiarity score of 34), MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough (Familiarity: 20) and “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell (Familiarity: 13).

It should be noted that in O’Donnell’s case, the Positive Q Score for anyone with a Familiarity rating below 20 should be considered unstable.

Ranking just ahead of those three were Fox News host Sean Hannity (Q Score: 10; Familiarity: 34) and Nicolle Wallace, political analyst for MSNBC and NBC News, former co-host on “The View” (Q Score: 10; Familiarity: 12).

TheWrap researched the Q Scores of 30 well-known television newscasters and hosts and ranked them in the gallery posted at the bottom of this story. For the record, we looked into 57 total TV news personalities, but almost half of them did not have Q Scores.

Daytime Emmys 2018: Will ‘Good Morning America’ extend its record as the biggest winner of Best Morning Show?

The Daytime Emmy Award for Best Morning Program was first handed out in 2007, and since then ABC’s “Good Morning America” has been the biggest winner, prevailing five times. Will the show extend its record with a sixth win in 2018? The TV academy has gone back and forth from year to year.

When the award was created 11 years ago two shows tied for the win: “Gma” and NBC’s “Today Show.” They defeated the only other nominee that year, “Live with Regis and Kelly,” which later returned to the talk show categories where it had previously competed. “Gma” won again in 2008 and 2009 before “Today” began a streak of its own, prevailing three times from 2010-2012.

It seemed like “Gma” and “Today” would be indomitable in the category, but then in 2013 “CBS Sunday Morning” earned its first nomination and won. The weekly series, at the time hosted by Charles Osgood, focuses on national and international news,

Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Says She ‘Would Consider’ Taking a Settlement (Video)

Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Says She ‘Would Consider’ Taking a Settlement (Video)
Michael Avenatti says his client Stormy Daniels would consider a settlement of some kind with Donald Trump under the right circumstances. “I think we would consider it, I would converse with my client.

Jimmy Carter: ‘Worst Mistake’ Trump Has Made Was to Hire John Bolton
Former president Jimmy Carter has weighed in on Donald Trump’s decision to hire John Bolton as national security adviser, calling it the “worst mistake” the president has ever made. “I have been concerned at some of the things he’s decided,” Carter said. “I think his last choice for national security adviser was very ill-advised.

Cate Blanchett Breaks Silence on Woody Allen: ‘If the Case Needs to Be Reopened, I Am in Support of That’

Cate Blanchett Breaks Silence on Woody Allen: ‘If the Case Needs to Be Reopened, I Am in Support of That’
Cate Blanchett says she is in full support of another investigation into Dylan Farrow’s allegations of child molestation against Woody Allen. The Oscar-winning actress appeared on Christiane Amanpour’s CNN series on March 21 and was asked the following the question: “How do you juxtapose being a #MeToo proponent, a Time’s Up proponent, and staying silent or having worked with Woody Allen?”

“I don’t think I’ve stayed silent at all,” Blanchett responded. At the time that I worked with Woody Allen, I knew nothing of the allegations. At the time, I said it’s a very painful and complicated situation for the family, which I hope they have the ability to resolve.”

“If these allegations need to be reexamined which, in my understanding, they’ve been through court, then I’m a big believer in the justice system and setting legal precedents,” she continued. “If the case needs to be reopened,

No Mention of Ryan Seacrest Sexual Harassment Allegations on ‘Live With Kelly and Ryan’

No Mention of Ryan Seacrest Sexual Harassment Allegations on ‘Live With Kelly and Ryan’
Ryan Seacrest did not address the sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by a former co-worker during Tuesday’s edition of his syndicated morning show “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

Seacrest came under scrutiny again on Monday following Variety‘s exclusive publication of an interview with Suzie Hardy, a former stylist who worked with him at E! Entertainment.

Hardy assets that she repeatedly faced sexually aggressive overtures from Seacrest during her years working as his personal stylist. Seacrest has denied Hardy’s allegations, and his lawyer asserted that Hardy previously sought a $15 million payment from Seacrest to keep quiet about her accusations. Hardy and her attorney maintain that no such payment was ever sought.

Late last month, E! announced that it found “insufficient evidence” to support Hardy’s allegations after an investigation by an outside firm. Hardy said she was motivated to come forward by the sheer number of women who have come forward in the #MeToo

TV News Tests Different Coverage Strategies for Florida Shooting

Anchors at NBC’s “Today” show were half a world away from Parkland, Florida, this morning, but that didn’t keep them from covering a horrific tragedy unfolding there as if it were in the next town over.

Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie have been holding forth from Peyongchang, South Korea, where the parent of NBC News, Comcast Corp., is spending billions of dollars to cover the 2018 Winter Olympics. Because of the time difference, Guthrie and Kotb reach their morning U.S. audience when it’s still night where they are. The scene behind them is dark, not light. And one of their most notable interviews Thursday morning wasn’t with an athlete with close proximity to their temporary studio like Mikaela Shiffrin or Shaun White, but rather with a high-school student named Samantha Grady, who had been grazed by gunfire in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. As the interview

New ‘Today’ Team Gears Up for Olympic Challenge in Morning-News Wars

New ‘Today’ Team Gears Up for Olympic Challenge in Morning-News Wars
Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb are going to South Korea to help “Today” cover the Winter Olympics. They are in the midst of a gold-medal task all their own.

NBCUniversal’s mammoth coverage of the Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, typically lends a ratings boost to the NBC morning-show franchise that Kotb and Guthrie co-anchor each weekday. And their journey comes at a time when the show has eked out the thinnest of margins against its main rival, ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Season to date as of Feb. 2, the NBC program leads its competitor by just 8,000 viewers.

“We are just putting on the best show we can every single day,” says Guthrie in an interview. “If you try to look at what the other show is doing, you drive yourself crazy.”

The duo may go crazy anyway. NBCUniversal will broadcast more than 2,400 hours of Olympics coverage across its networks and digital outlets, and “Today
