Events[edit]

January[edit]

DateEvent
1Time Warner Cable President/COO Robert Marcus becomes the company's new CEO, succeeding the retiring Glenn Britt.[1]
One year to the day after being dropped from Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks systems, Ovation returns to the two providers, the result of Ovation's announced commitment to provide more original programming.[2]
Home shopping network ShopNBC rebrands as ShopHQ.[3]
Fox owned-and-operated station WJZY/Charlotte, North Carolina launches its news department with the debut of an hour-long 10 p.m. newscast. The program soft-launched on December 18, 2013, in the form of an online-only rehearsal newscast that was streamed on the station's website until WJZY's news share agreement with CBS affiliate WBTV to produce its primetime newscast ended.[4][5][6]
Sinclair-controlled ABC affiliate WHAM-TV/Rochester begins producing morning and 10 p.m. newscasts for its Fox-affiliated sister station WUHF. The setup comes after the termination of an eight-year shared services agreement at the end of 2013 with Nexstar-owned WROC-TV, which saw WROC produce news content for WUHF. Sinclair's duopoly partner, Deerfield Media, acquired WHAM-TV from Newport Television in December 2012.[7]
2Hearst Corporation announces that David Barrett, CEO of its television station division, has ceded day-to-day oversight to the division's President/COO, Jordan Wertleib; Barrett remains on Hearst's board of trustees.[8]
5The fourth season premiere of Downton Abbey makes history for PBS, with more than 10.2 million viewers tuning in, making it the highest rated program in the network's 44-year history.[9]
6ABC begins limiting online access to day-after streaming of its series' new episodes to customers of participating cable providers, Hulu Plus, iTunes, and Amazon Instant Video and restricting free access to recent episodes on its website and streaming app to other users eight days after an episode's original airdate.[10] Similar streaming restrictions are also put in place by sister cable channel ABC Family, which launched its "Watch ABC Family" authenticated streaming service on that same day.[11]
One year after adding the omg! to its name (the result of a partnership with Yahoo!'s similarly titled website), the CBS-syndicated entertainment/gossip program omg! Insider sees its title revert to just The Insider.[12]
11CBS Sports NFL analyst Dan Dierdorf calls his final game, an AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots, ending a three-decade career as an analyst spent with CBS and ABC's Monday Night Football.[13]
12NBC's telecast of the 71st Golden Globe Awards is watched by an estimated 20.9 million people, the event's best ratings in 10 years.[14]
13A scene in this evening's episode of How I Met Your Mother features members of the all-white main cast in yellow face and depicting Asian stereotypes and accents. It proves to be a controversial scene, and prompts series creator/producer Carter Bays to apologize on Twitter on January 15, explaining that it was meant to pay homage to the Kung fu movies they grew up on.[15]
14DirecTV removes The Weather Channel due to an unresolved carriage dispute, with the carrier filling the void with a simulcast of digital broadcast network WeatherNation TV.[16] The dispute runs until April 8, when DirecTV and The Weather Channel reach a new carriage deal; the channel, in a trade-off to regain carriage, agrees to pare down its weekday reality content and devote more of its daytime schedule to forecasts and weather reportage.[17]
15On Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Captain Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) retires from the NYPD, leaving Detective/Sergeant Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) as the only remaining character who has appeared on the series for its entire fifteen-season run.[18]
18Sasheer Zamata joins the cast of Saturday Night Live, becoming the show's first black female cast member in six years.[19] Zamata's hiring, along with the addition of two other black women to its writing staff (Leslie Jones and LaKendra Tookes),[20] come after SNL had received criticism in 2013 for a lack of African-American women among its cast.[21]
26NBC airs the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl, likely the last Pro Bowl game to air on broadcast television for the next few years. ESPN will take over exclusive rights to the Pro Bowl and Monday Night Football from 2015 through 2022.[22]
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards airs on CBS. It is the first time the ceremony has been held in January (in part to avoid scheduling conflicts with the 2014 Winter Olympics in February)[23] and is marked by major wins for Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Lorde. Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor later blasted the producers and CBS on Twitter for cutting off the band's closing performance featuring Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham.[24]
27How I Met Your Mother marks its 200th episode with a twist: rather than being told from Ted Mosby's point of view, it is instead told from the perspective of "The Mother" (Cristin Milioti), whose eight years prior to meeting Ted are recalled in a story complete with special opening credits.[25]
NBC Sports hires Lindsey Vonn as their correspondent for the network's coverage of the 2014 Winter Games and as a contributor on Today during its broadcast from Sochi. The skier was supposed to compete in the events, but a series of injuries resulted in Vonn withdrawing from the Games earlier this month.[26]
28For the first time ever, four different televised Republican responses followed the State of the Union Address by Democratic President Barack Obama.[27]
Moments after the State of the Union Address was completed, United States Congressman Michael Grimm (R-New York's 11th), threatened NY1 reporter Michael Scotto by attacking him and telling Scotto that he'll throw him off the balcony of the United States Capitol building after Scotto approached the Tea Party-backed representative to ask about a continuing federal investigation into his campaign fund-raising while the cameras were still rolling (Grimm would later be indicted in April).[28] Grimm later apologized to his district and to NY1 for his actions.[29]
During a live remote from the College of Charleston, a man lunges at The Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore, who fends off the attacker with a knee to the groin and finishes his report.[30]
29For the first time in 19 years, Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier reprise their Full House roles and appear on Late Night to give Jimmy Fallon a sappy, heartfelt speech to calm his anxiety about hosting The Tonight Show.[31]

Likely due to contractual issues, the channel now broadcasts the 4 a.m. (Central Time) hour of the WGN Morning News on weekdays as a replacement.[34]
4The National Football League awards its Thursday Night Football package to CBS, which will produce 16 Thursday and Saturday night games in 2014 (with a league option for 2015).

9On the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' debut performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, CBS marks the occasion with a concert special, featuring performances by modern-day artists such as Katy Perry and Maroon 5, plus an interview with surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr by David Letterman, whose Late Show presently occupies Ed Sullivan's former studio.[39]

17Will Smith and U2 are the guests as Jimmy Fallon becomes the new host of The Tonight Show, which originates from the same studio (Studio 6B at NBC's New York studios) where the show originated until moving to the West Coast in May 1972.

A caveat of the deal is the altering of Dish's Hopper DVR system to prevent commercial skipping of Disney programming for a 72-hour window (within ACNielsen's "Live +3" ratings metric) after a program's original airing; in return, Disney agrees to drop its legal action against Dish regarding Hopper.[54]
5Saying she cannot be part of a network that "whitewashes the actions" of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Washington-based anchor Liz Wahl resigns on-air from the Russian government-backed news channel RT at the end of her newscast.[55] Wahl's departure comes one day after colleague Abby Martin closed an episode of her Breaking the Set by declaring her opposition to Russia's intervention in Ukraine.[56]

12Post-Newsweek Stations announces its intent to sell ABC affiliate WPLG/Miami to Berkshire Hathaway in a cash and stock deal in which the latter company (founded by Warren Buffett) will significantly reduce its stake in Post-Newsweek parent Graham Holdings Company through a trade of an undisclosed amount of shares in Berkshire Hathaway currently held by Graham, which will receive 1.6 million shares of Class B common stock in Graham Holdings owned by Berkshire Hathaway.[59] In a memo to Post-Newsweek employees, president and CEO Emily Barr stated that the group's remaining five stations would not be sold.[60]

20Sinclair Broadcast Group restructures its acquisition of Allbritton Communications Company in order to address ownership conflicts noted in a December 2013 FCC review of the deal (originally announced in August 2013). Sinclair will sell CBS affiliate WHP-TV/Harrisburg (in order to acquire ABC affiliate WHTM-TV) and MyNetworkTV affiliates WMMP/Charleston and WABM/Birmingham (in order to acquire ABC affiliates WCIV and WBMA-LD/WCFT-TV/WJSU-TV, creating a duopoly between the latter and CW affiliate WTTO), opting not to enter into any operational or financial agreements with the buyers of those stations. Sinclair would also terminate a shared services agreement with Charleston Fox affiliate WTAT (to which owner and longtime Sinclair SSA partner Cunningham Broadcasting would assume operations outright), give the buyer of WHP-TV the rights to an existing local marketing agreement with Harrisburg CW affiliate WLYH, and seek a license, programming and transmitter asset swap between WHTM and the buyer of WHP.[70][71]
21LIN Media and Media General announce that the two companies will merge in a $1.6 billion deal that will create the second largest television station group in the United States with 74 stations in 46 television markets. Due to planned changes in FCC ownership rules regarding same-market television stations, Media General and LIN plan to divest or swap stations that each company owns in five markets: Birmingham (WVTM-TV and WIAT), Green Bay (WBAY-TV, WLUK-TV and WCWF), Mobile (WKRG-TV, WALA-TV and WFNA), Providence (WPRI-TV, WJAR and WNAC-TV) and Savannah (WSAV-TV, WJCL and WTGS).[72][73][74]

28The Colbert Report comes under fire after posting a message on its Twitter account mocking Asian stereotypes (using a quote from a March 27 episode in reference to a piece on the creation of the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, pointing out the hypocrisy of using a ethnic slur aimed at Native Americans in the non-profit's name), with some users calling for an end to the show with the hashtag #CancelColbert. Colbert's network Comedy Central takes responsibility for the tweet, saying neither Stephen Colbert nor his staff had anything to do with what was written.[81] The account @ColbertReport was later deleted with the account 'blown up' ceremonially during an interview with Twitter founder Biz Stone, with all show-related tweets being directed to Colbert's personal Twitter account.[82]
Piers Morgan ends his Piers Morgan Live show, three years after Morgan succeeded longtime network personality Larry King in the 9:00 p.m. ET hour.[83]

31In a 3-2 vote, the Federal Communications Commission votes to ban joint sales agreements, making them attributable to FCC ownership limits if the senior partner sells 15% or more of the advertising time of a competing junior partner station in the JSA; the ruling will apply to both pending station transactions, as well as existing JSAs, giving a grace period of two years for such agreements to be unwound.[86] The Commission also votes to prohibit broadcasters from coordinating retransmission consent negotiations involving two of the four highest-rated stations in a single television market.[87]
Adult Swim expands its programming by claiming an hour from Cartoon Network (the two channels occupy the same channel space) and running nightly from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. (ET).[88] This marks the second expansion into an earlier evening timeslot for Adult Swim, which began airing at 9:00 p.m. (ET) in December 2010.[89]

April[edit]

DateEvent
1Fourteen Viacom-owned cable networks (including MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, Spike and TV Land) were removed for several hours from most of the 850 small cable providers represented by the National Cable Television Cooperative, after Viacom and the providers fail to reach a new contract before the 12:01 p.m. Eastern Time expiration of the media company's prior agreement with the NCTC.

For an April Fools' Day joke, Craig Ferguson and Drew Carey trade places as hosts of their respective CBS shows: Ferguson subs for Carey on The Price is Right, accompanied by The Late Late Show announcer Shadoe Stevens, sidekick Geoff Peterson and pantomime horse Secretariat; Carey returns the favor by guest hosting Late Late, with Price announcer George Gray and models Rachel Reynolds, Manuela Arbeláez and Amber Lancaster alongside.[91][92][93]

8Around 10:00 p.m. ET, Dish Network removes Hearst Television-owned stations in more than 20 markets after the broadcasting group and satellite provider fail to renew a carriage agreement due to disagreements on retransmission consent payments.

15Trans-America Broadcasting, the owners of MyNetworkTV outlet KAIL/Fresno, restructures its operations and changes its name to Tel-America North Corporation. The move comes as a result of Trans-America's announced sale of its sole radio outlet KTYM/Los Angeles to Immaculate Heart Radio on the same day of the restructuring. KAIL will continue on as the newly formed company's sole property.[97]
20The historical drama Salem makes its debut on WGN America, becoming the first scripted series produced exclusively for the Tribune Broadcasting-owned cable/satellite network.

21CBS affiliate WJMN-TV/Marquette, Michigan (which operates as a semi-satellite of WFRV-TV/Green Bay, Wisconsin) launches an in-house news operation with two weeknight-only newscasts at 6 and 11 p.m. This marks the first time since its launch in 1968 that the station has aired its own local newscasts.[100][101] The move comes almost three years after owner Nexstar Broadcasting Group (which purchased WJMN and WFRV in 2011) announced plans to establish some form of separate news department for WJMN, which had been simulcasting WFRV's newscasts with Upper Peninsula-focused weather cut-ins inserted into the broadcasts.[102]
27In the fallout of revelations of a leaked tape from TMZ in which Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling made alleged racially-offensive comments in front of his biracial mistress after she took Instagram photos of minorities that he asked her to remove,[103] the team entered the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California for their fourth game in the 2014 NBA Playoffs against the Golden State Warriors with their warmup shirts and jackets turned inside out as protest against Sterling during its telecast on ABC. The Clippers would lose to the Warriors 118-97.[104] The following day, a number of major companies including Kia Motors (whose television spokesperson is Clippers player Blake Griffin), State Farm Insurance, and Virgin America, announced that they would no longer serve as sponsors for the Clippers, including their television broadcasts.[105] On April 29, The NBA, upon confirming the taped conversations, announced that Sterling has been banned for life and fined $2.5 million.[106] After that announcement was made, the 15 companies that withdrew their media sponsorship announced that it would either return or look at renewing its deal pending the outcome of the franchise's future that was outlined by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.[107]

WMAR-TV ran an automated feed of ABC programming for five hours, before being taken off the air entirely late that afternoon until it established a satellite relay with Phoenix sister station KNXV-TV (both are owned by the E. W. Scripps Company) to restore its signal.[115][116]
14The Gannett Company will expand its broadcasting footprint in Texas when it purchases six television stations owned by the London Broadcasting Company – ABC affiliates KIII/Corpus Christi and KBMT/Beaumont, NBC affiliate KCEN-TV/Waco, CBS affiliate KYTX/Nacogdoches and Fox affiliates KXVA/Abilene and KIDY/San Angelo – for $215 million (the company had acquired ABC affiliates WFAA/Dallas and KVUE/Austin and CBS affiliates KHOU/Houston and KENS/San Antonio in 2013 as part of its acquisition with Belo); the deal gives Gannett its first Fox-affiliated stations with the acquisitions of KIDY and KXVA.[117] As a result of its exemption from the deal, independent station KTXD-TV/Greenville and Me-TV affiliate KCEB/Longview will become London's two remaining television properties.[118][119][120][121]

The 2014 telecast of the Billboard Music Awards on ABC posted its biggest numbers in 13 years, being watched by 10.5 million viewers, topping the 2013 telecast by 700,000 viewers to make it the most watched BBMAs since its 1989 inaugural broadcast.[124]
19NBC tests out The Maya Rudolph Show, a special that is aimed to revive the variety/musical series format that has not been seen on American television since the short-lived Wayne Brady Show in 2001, which could serve as a possible limited-run series or a series of specials. This was the first attempt in nearly six years by NBC to bring this concept back to television (its last successful series in this genre, Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters, left the network's schedule in 1982), having struck out back in 2008 with Rosie Live.[125] The special pulled in 7.23 million viewers in its 10 p.m. (ET/PT) timeslot, making it the third most watched program of the night.[126]

28The 2014 edition of the World Music Awards, which had been scheduled to air on NBC after being recorded the night before in Monte Carlo, is abruptly pre-empted prior to its broadcast, replaced by a rebroadcast of the eighth season premiere of Last Comic Standing due to what the WMA organizing body calls "technical issues".[128][129] It was later revealed that Sharon Stone had pulled out as host last-minute due to a payment dispute with organizers, while delays during the taping of the show meant it would not make broadcast, and as of June 4, NBC still had not received 'final cut' from the producers.[130] The World Music Awards had not been held since 2010, when it was last aired in the U.S. on MyNetworkTV.
29Due to the Federal Communications Commission's recent ban on joint sales agreements and citing the inability to find buyers for stations that it tried to sell in the two markets, Sinclair Broadcast Group announced a proposal to relinquish the licenses of the three ABC affiliates that it planned to acquire in its purchase of Allbritton Communications Company, WCIV/Charleston, South Carolina, WCFT-TV/Tuscaloosa, Alabama and WJSU-TV/Anniston, Alabama (the latter two of which simulcast low-power station WBMA-LD) to the FCC, and move ABC programming to the company's existing MyNetworkTV-affiliated stations in those markets, WABM and WMMP, in order to expedite approval of the deal.[131]
30Crain's Chicago Business reports plans by Tribune Company CEO Peter Liguori to phase out broadcasts of local Chicago sporting events on WGN America by January 2015 as part of the network's transition to basic cable from a superstation feed of WGN-TV, which has regularly aired games involving the Bulls, Cubs and White Sox nationwide since uplinking to satellite in 1978.[132]

6The Nexstar Broadcasting Group announces it will sell three Fox-affiliated stations – KMSS-TV/Shreveport, Louisiana, KPEJ-TV/Midland, Texas and KLJB/Davenport, Iowa – to the Marshall Broadcasting Group for $58.5 million. The minority-owned Marshall intends to fund the acquisitions through borrowings guaranteed by Nexstar (which had intended to acquire the stations through its 2013 purchases of the Communications Corporation of America, White Knight Broadcasting and Grant Broadcasting System II), and plans to launch news operations and provide sports and minority-oriented public affairs programming, with Nexstar providing sales and certain non-programming services.[133]
8Actor/comedian Tracy Morgan (formerly of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock) is critically injured and hospitalized in an intensive care unit after a six-car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that injured three other people and killed comedian James McNair. Kevin Roper, the sleep deprived driver of the 18-wheel truck who caused the crash was charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.[134][135] Morgan later sued the trucker's employer Walmart, claiming they “knew, or should have known” he was sleep deprived.[136]

12Coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup begins on ABC/ESPN (English-language), Univision (Spanish-language), and ESPN Deportes (Portuguese-language), running through July 12.

A Wall Street Journal report reveals that Univision Communications has been in preliminary talks with CBS and Time Warner about a potential sale of the Spanish-language broadcaster. Univision's ownership, led by Saban Capital Group, are seeking at least $20 billion for the company.[139]
13Gray Television initiates a major shuffle of affiliations and stations in the wake of the new FCC rules disallowing joint sales agreements, in the states of Nebraska and North Dakota in the wake of the completion of its purchase of stations owned by Hoak Media.[140] KHAS-TV, the NBC affiliate for central Nebraska, goes off the air at midnight, with their NBC affiliation and local programming moved to Gray's KSNB-TV, which lead to move its primary MyNetworkTV/Me-TV affiliation to their DT2 subchannel, along with KHAS's Cozi TV and KSNB's Antenna TV subchannels being discontinued.[141] In western and central North Dakota, the Fox affiliations previously held by KNDX/KXND in Bismarck and Minot was also moved to the DT2 subchannels of KFYR in Bismarck,(and satellite stations KQCD/Dickinson, KMOT/Minot, and KUMV/Willison); along with the existing low-power repeaters KNDX-LD/Dickinson and KXND-LP/Williston, with the full-power KNDX and KXND signals also going off the air.[142] The company later announced that it plans to move the CBS affiliation of KXJB/Fargo to the DT2 sub channel of NBC affiliate KVLY and another move of the ABC affiliations of KJCT/Grand Junction, Colorado and KAQY/Monroe, Louisiana to Gray's other operations in the same markets (NBC affiliate KKCO and CBS affiliate KNOE, respectively) as DT2 subchannels. The silent stations will then be spin off to minority interests pending approval from the FCC, which under this arrangement would allow the stations to continue operating on the conditions that it would continue serving the markets independently (under minority, female and/or non-profit ownership) and not make any partnerships or sharing arrangements with other broadcasters.[143]
18Meredith Corporation announces it will purchase ABC affiliate WGGB/Springfield, Massachusetts from Gormally Broadcasting, LLC. The deal will put WGGB under common ownership with Meredith's existing CBS affiliate in that market, low-powered WSHM-LD (FCC rules permit duopolies between full-power and low-power television stations regardless of the number of television stations in a given market), along with nearby Hartford, Connecticut CBS affiliate WFSB (which simulcasts WSHM on one of their subchannels).[144]
19Netflix announces that it has signed Chelsea Handler to a deal that will allow the comedienne to create specials and series with unfiltered content, including a relaunch of her talk show in 2016 (Her E! program Chelsea Lately will end August 26).[145]
22The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and The Young and the Restless are among notable winners at the 41st Daytime Emmy Awards. Kathy Griffin hosts the ceremony, which has an online-only broadcast after several years on broadcast or cable TV.[146]
ESPN's longest running news program, SportsCenter, debuts their new "Studio X", which is contained in the new Digital Center 2 facility on the ESPN campus in Bristol, Connecticut. A matching redone studio at their presence at L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles debuts a day later. The new set also brings changes to the network's (as well as sister networks) BottomLine news ticker.[147]
23Sinclair Broadcast Group announces its intention to sell WHTM-TV, the ABC affiliate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to Media General for $83.4 million. The company also announces the sale of the non-license assets of WTAT-TV, the Fox affiliate in Charleston, South Carolina, to that station's licensee Cunningham Broadcasting. The divestitures come as Sinclair continues to seek approval for its purchase of Allbritton Communications Company's television stations, which include WHTM.[148]
24Fox Television Stations announces it will acquire the San Francisco Bay Area duopoly of KTVU (Fox) and KICU-TV (Ind.) from Cox Media Group in a station swap. In return, Cox will receive Fox's O&O stations in Boston (WFXT) and Memphis (WHBQ-TV), which will remain Fox affiliates once the deal is complete.[149]
25In a 6–3 ruling favoring the American television networks, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that internet firm Aereo functions essentially like a cable system, and that its online streaming and storage of broadcasters' over-the-air signals without paying compulsory retransmission fees violates the public performance clause of the Copyright Act. The Justices indicate, however, that their ruling is not intended to discourage “the emergence or use of different kinds of technologies”.[150] The ruling leads to Aereo "[pausing its] operations temporarily" at 11:30 AM (ET) on June 28 while it determines its future plans.[151]
Diane Sawyer announces that she will step down as the anchor of ABC World News in order to focus on reporting projects for the network. Her duties will be split between 20/20 co-anchor and World News weekend anchor David Muir, who will succeed Sawyer as weeknight anchor and managing editor on September 2, and Good Morning America and This Week host George Stephanopoulos, who will assume the lead anchor role on all special reports and breaking news coverage.[152]
CBS' Big Brother becomes the last American prime-time network series to convert to a high-definition format, the end result of a massive three-year technical upgrade of the show's fixed and robotic cameras and post-production facilities at CBS Studio Center in Studio City.[153]
26Sherri Shepherd announces she will leave The View after seven years, with fellow co-host Jenny McCarthy stating afterwards she will leave as well after one year. Their departures leave Whoopi Goldberg as the sole incumbent host on the ABC daytime talk show.[154]
The 40th Saturn Awards ceremony, honoring the best in science fiction, fantasy and horror television in 2013, is held in Burbank, California. Series winners included Hannibal, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead.[155]
27The debut of Girl Meets World pulls in a record setting 5.2 million viewers overall, making the Boy Meets World-sequeled spin-off the most watched program in the 30-year history of the Disney Channel, the most-viewed series ever on the Watch Disney Channel authenticated app, and the most downloaded Disney Channel series preview on iTunes.[156]
30The U.S. Supreme Court declined on taking up a case in which Minority Television Project, the owners of San Francisco independent educational station KMTP, challenged its FCC fine that was imposed on them in 2002 for airing messages from commercial sponsors, which the FCC claimed were from for-profit advertisers. MTP had sought to overturn a lower court rulings that upheld a 1981 law that restricts public stations from airing ads for commercial products or political candidates and asked the court to reconsider a 1969 Supreme Court decision that allowed the government to place some restrictions on broadcast content, arguing that the media landscape had changed so much in the last 45 years, as well as their claim of first amendment rights. This comes after a 2013 en banc panel of the 9th Circuit ruling which agreed that the government was on solid legal ground and that it had a vested interest in ensuring that public TV retained its non-commercial nature, as stations licensed as non-commercial or public are prohibited from airing ads but can allow underwriting and spots for non-profits. The decision not to take up the case means the ban on commercials on Public television will remain in place.[157]

July[edit]

DateEvent
1Ownership of PBS NewsHour is transferred from MacNeil/Lehrer Productions (jointly owned by Liberty Media and former NewsHour anchors Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer) to WETA-TV/Washington, D.C., who have long housed production of the program at its Arlington, Virginia studios. The transfer, approved by WETA's board of trustees on June 17, results in production of PBS NewsHour being taken over by NewsHour Productions, LLC, a wholly-owned WETA subsidiary. The station acquires MacNeil/Lehrer Productions' archives, documentaries, and projects, though not the company's name. The program's weekend counterpart, PBS NewsHour Weekend, is not affected by the ownership transfer and continues to be produced in New York City by WNET.[158]
2News-Press & Gazette Company (owners of Yuma, Arizona Fox/ABC affiliate KECY-TV, and Telemundo low power station KESE-LP) have agreed to enter into a sharing agreement with Blackhawk Broadcasting, owners of NBC affiliate KYMA-DT, and CBS affiliate KSWT.

19A deputy judge on Britain's High Court of Justice rules that Fox Television Studios must find a new title for its US series Glee in the United Kingdom, ruling that Fox had infringed on the UK trademark for "Glee" held by Comic Enterprises, owners of The Glee Club chain of comedy clubs. Fox, claiming that a change in the show's name "would adversely affect fans’ enjoyment of Glee in the U.K.," has filed an appeal.[165]
24Gray Television announces it will acquire SJL Broadcasting's ABC affiliates in the Flint/Tri-Cities (WJRT-TV) and Toledo (WTVG) markets in a $128 million deal. SJL had owned the stations since 2010, when they reacquired them from ABC in a $30 million deal (ABC bought them from SJL for $120 million in 1995 as a backstop to ward off a possible CBS affiliation on WXYZ-TV/Detroit before a long-term affiliation deal with E.W. Scripps Company was made during the 1994 affiliation shifts).[166]
The Federal Communications Commission approves the sale of Allbritton Communications to Sinclair Broadcast Group after nearly a year of consideration, which includes the license turnovers in Birmingham and Charleston, South Carolina proposed on May 29 and the sale of ABC affiliate WHTM-TV/Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, but the Commission warns extra scrutiny would come involving Sinclair and their ties to Cunningham Broadcasting in the Charleston area.[167]
