Hollywood news banter

Hosted by
  • CBS and Viacom--can they hug it out? CBS made a low-ball bid for Viacom, which Viacom then rejected. Thought the two companies will likely eventually (re)merge, what the new corporate structure would look like remains unclear.
  • Kenya Barris, the creator of ‘Black-ish’ on ABC is planning to leave the company, and possibly heading to Netflix. This is after one of his episodes didn’t air and other reported clashes with the company. It’s a bad look for ABC, which also recently lost Shonda Rhimes to Netflix.
