Of Note:

  • All top three shows in cable on Wednesday earned 0.5s among adults 18-49, with BLACK INK CREW CHICAGO taking the number one slot, although ESPN’s broadcast of the COLLEGE WORLD SERIES had the most viewers, with 2.16 million tuning in.
  • In its second week, YELLOWSTONE on Paramount Network took a predictable and minor hit, dropping a tenth from 0.4 to 0.3, and 2.07 million viewers.
  • Elsewhere, THE EXPANSE on Syfy wrapped up its third season to the tune of a 0.2 and 730,000 viewers. When the show returns for season 4 in 2019, it will pop up on Amazon.

 

OTHER NEWS:

  • Verizon has decided to shutter the Go90 mobile video app and will shift distribution of all of its shows to other well established media brands, such as Yahoo! Sports, AOL, Ryot, Engadget and Huffington Post, through its Oath platform.
  • Jordan Peele has snagged a second straight-to-series order for an anthology series, this time on YouTube. WEIRD CITY is a half-hour comedic sci-fi centering around a near-future metropolis called Weird, with each episode pertaining to present day issues in the future setting. Monkeypaw Productions, Sonar Entertainment, Mosaic, and Raskal Productions all produce, with Jose Molina (The Tick), showrunning and executive producing.
  • For all the horror fans out there, Blumhouse TV and USA have released the first trailer for THE PURGE, a 10-episode limited series based on the popular film franchise. Much like the movies, the arc will follow the annual night of mayhem and murder where all crime in the US is legalized. Check it out HERE (and yes, I’ve already set my DVR for the September 4 premiere).
