NBC will air an interview with Amber Heard this week on “Today” and “Dateline NBC,” the actress’ first since the lurid defamation trial that ended with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, winning over $10 million in damages. During the sit-down with “Today” host Savannah Guthrie, which took place June 9, Heard shares her feelings about an experience that had her under attack in many quarters. “Even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation,” says Heard in an excerpt of the interview tweeted by “Today.”

GroupM is partnering with companies including Disney, Fox/Tubi, LG Ads Solutions, NBCUniversal, Paramount, VIZIO and Warner Bros. Discovery to ensure ads are only counted when delivered to screens that are on, with people in front of them. This comes after a joint study between GroupM and iSpot indicated that on average, 8-10% of streaming impressions play when the TV is shut off. “The explosion of streaming is rich with opportunity to deliver smarter ad experiences across a wide variety of possible channels,” said Kirk McDonald, Chief Executive Officer, GroupM North America. “As responsible investment stewards of our clients’ media spend, this verification illuminates both the issue and the opportunity for our industry. Regardless of the medium, if an ad is running, we want and should be able to attribute, measure, and report that an ad was served and seen.”
