Someone was working on Thanksgiving. At close to midnight on Thursday, CBS Corp. released a statement saying the company had reached a multi-year agreement with Dish Network for carriage of CBS owned stations, Pop, Smithsonian Channel and CBS Sports Network. The deal, which CBS Corp. president, television networks distribution Ray Hopkins said achieved “short and long-term economic and strategic goals,” ended what had become a war of words and three-day blackout that affected customers in 26 states. According to the American Television Alliance, which represents cable and satellite TV providers, there have been 212 blackouts on pay-T systems this year, more than double the number in 2016.

Law & Order: SVU is prepping a shades-of-Harvey Weinstein episode, reports Entertainment Weekly. However, instead of a Hollywood setting, the NBC action will focus on the airline business. “It’s a real important episode about the rape culture in an industry, and we wanted to try to stretch the law to criminalize that sort of environment,” exec producer Michael Chernuchin told EW, adding that the show had been in the works before the Weinstein scandal erupted. “We were beating the story out and said, ‘Wow, this is exactly what the actresses go through’….So we got all of our Harvey stuff out with airline pilots.”

The cast and crew of House of Cards was informed that  Media Rights Capital  is working with Netflix with the hope of resuming production on the sixth and final season “soon.” A letter from SVP of television business and legal affairs Pauline Micelli expressed appreciation for everyone’s patience, and said the crew will be paid for an additional 2-week hiatus ending December 8. MRC suspended series star Kevin Spacey over allegations of sexual harassment earlier this month, and Netflix said it wouldn’t work with Spacey – which means if and when Cards returns, the plot will be seriously reshuffled.

Last week, YouTube terminated over 50 channels and yanked thousands of videos it considered predatory or not family-friendly. On the company’s blog, VP of product management Johanna Wright explained the move comes as the result of “a growing trend around content on YouTube that attempts to pass as family-friendly, but clearly is not.” Advertisers including Mars candy and Mondelez, maker of Oreos, had reportedly pulled advertising following complaints about unsuitable content.
