ESPN’s Jemele Hill will temporarily lose her SportsCenter seat after suggesting that her Twitter followers boycott advertisers of the Dallas Cowboys, whose owner, Jerry Jones, threatened to bench players kneeling during the national anthem. It’s not Hill’s first Twitter dust-up – last month she called President Trump “ignorant,” and his presidency the “direct result of white supremacy.” Said the network, “Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines. She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences. Hence this decision.”

Also not happy were fans of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty, when a McDonald’s stunt involving Szechuan sauce went sour. The fast food chain, responding to Rick & Morty’s mention of the sauce, offered a one-day promotion on October 7 – and wildly underestimated demand. “Between the costumes, the memes and the cross-state travel, you, the fans showed us what you got. And our super-limited batch, though well-intentioned, clearly wasn’t near enough to meet that demand. ‘Not cool,’” tweeted MdD’s, promising lots more sauce and locations this winter.

There was a shift in shows that best captured viewer attention in September, according to Dan Schiffman, CRO for TVision. “Game shows and reality TV, which topped the ranks in summer attention, gave way to scripted television in the Fall TV lineup,” Schiffman told Cynopsis. “New season premieres like Great News and Young Sheldon, achieved the most attention as September sitcoms and dramas took over the top ranks in Broadcast Attention.” (Of course, attention doesn’t always correspond with ratings – among cable’s top 5 was Bravo’s just-canceled Odd Mom Out.)
