huffingtonpost.com — The U.S. military has officially canceled New York City Fleet Week this year, due to budget cuts brought on by sequestration. "Unfortunately, there will be no Navy ships in New York this year for Fleet Week and no additional Sailors or Marines," Beth Baker, Fleet Week Director of Public Affairs, said in a statement.
adweek.com — Samsung's newest ad is precipitating foul rumblings across the cyberverse for depicting men as gassy, unkempt, couch-bound louts. The spot touts the Evolution Kit, which turns any Samsung television into a smart TV (too bad it can't do the same for your spouse).
adweek.com — A few weeks after the NewFronts-where something like 75 shows were introduced-and what's the most anticipated Web video series out there? Why, of course, it's Arrested Development. Of course, that's entirely unfair. As we (and everybody) have already chronicled, Arrested Development is a canceled network show that developed a massive cult following and that has teased fans with the possibility of a comeback time and time again.
adweek.com — The Creative Circus, Atlanta's advertising school, has hired the most famous, perhaps infamous, stripper in town to pimp its do-goody-goody advertising contest known as A+, where all the winners receive a pimp cup. They're trying to make Atlanta a "more livable city" one stripper promotion at a time. Blondie is Atlanta legend.

adweek.com — With The Great Gatsby in theaters and everyone suddenly falling in love with the glamor of the 1920s, now's a fitting time to take a look at one of the Machine Age's legendary machines. What's more, unlike Model A's and Victrolas, this one never went out of style.
adweek.com — Kmart's "Ship My Pants" ad was a major success, to the tune of 17 million YouTube views and counting. But can Draftfcb turn almost-profanity into a running gag for the retailer? It attempts to do so with this follow-up spot, "Big Gas Savings," which features some big-gas humor indeed.
adweek.com — In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos discussed "phase two" of the streaming service's foray into original content. Sarandos said he wants to double the slate of originals in 2014, with eight new shows, telling THR, "People's tastes are wildly diverse, and I want to be able to appeal to all of those tastes and across demos."
adweek.com — The specter of House of Cards, the breakout Netflix series, hung over the NewFronts a few weeks ago. In fact, its arguable as to whether the show did more harm than good for the industry, since it radically elevated the expectation of what a 'Web series' can be (since it's really just a $100 million TV show that HBO didn't produce; its delivery is digital).
