60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley was fired as CBS Evening News anchor in 2017 for repeatedly complaining about the “hostile environment” in the news division, he told CNN’s Reliable Sources. “Four or five years ago, I went to the president of the news division and explained to him that this hostile work environment couldn’t go on, for women and men,” Pelley said, referring to then-president David Rhodes. “He told me if I kept agitating about that internally then I’d lose my job.” Then-CEO Les Moonves “told me he didn’t share my concerns….And so, having exhausted the possibilities in the news division, I went to the chairman of the CBS corporation who listened to me very concerned for an hour, asked me some penetrating questions about what was going on. I didn’t hear back from him but in the next opportunity in my contact, I was let go from the Evening News.” But things are looking up now, according to Pelley. With Moonves and Rhodes gone and a commitment on the part of the company to change the culture, “It’s all blue sky from here,” he said.

NBC cancelled A.P. Bio after two seasons. The high school comedy, exec produced by Seth Meyers, is averaging 2.4 million total viewers and an 0.7 rating among A18-49 season-to-date. “As most canceled shows probably feel, I think we were just hitting our stride and everyone was still loving the work, so this is very hard,” tweeted creator Mike O’Brien.

ABC’s freshman comedic drama, axed the week before the upfronts, had been averaging an 0.4 rating among A18-49, but jumped to 0.7 in the demo after Wednesday’s All in the Family/The Jeffersons special, offering hope the decision might be reversed.
