The number of homes with cable subscribers will dip by 2 percent and the average network will be down 3 percent in penetration for the month of June, estimates Nielsen. While the data does not include new OTT services like Sling, “the figures are consistent with the notion that cord shaving is impacting owners of cable networks,” said Pivotal Research’s Brian Wieser on Friday. Bucking the trend are Fox networks FXM, Fox Deportes, Fox Sports 2 and FXX, all forecast to go up versus year ago.

Donald Trump backed out of a debate with Bernie Sanders on Friday, saying in addition to the fact that “it seems inappropriate” that as the presumptive Republican presidential candidate he should debate the likely second place finisher, “The networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be generous to charitable causes.” The topic of a Trump/Sanders debate had arisen on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday; the next day Trump said he’d participate “if we can raise $10 or $15 million for charity.” Responded Sanders, “Given that there are several television networks prepared to carry this debate and donate funds to charity, I hope he changes his mind once again.” #ChickenTrump quickly went viral.
