Audiences watching the Pop cable network or following its social channels will find themselves exposed to a curiously large number of gym ads this week, but not because fitness brands are suddenly targeting the network’s viewers during resolution season. They’re faux (and hilarious) spots created by Pop itself to promote its new competitive aerobics comedy, Let’s Get Physical. The series stars Matt Jones (who appeared in Breaking Bad as Badger, the friend of Aaron Paul’s Jesse).
As broadcast networks roll out new series each season, some of them rely on tried-and-true launching pads on their schedule, usually following their biggest shows. CBS uses the post-Big Bang Theory slot to debut hits like Young Sheldon, Kevin Can Wait and Scorpion, while NBC relies on The Voice to funnel viewers to the premieres of This Is Us, The Blacklist and Blindspot.
The Television Critics Association’s winter press tour comes to a close today, capping 14 days in which approximately 40 broadcast, cable and streaming outlets presented their early-2018 shows to hundreds of TV journalists. But a company that never set foot inside Pasadena, Calif.’s Langham Huntington dominated most of those two weeks. Netflix once again skipped the semi-annual gathering, as the networks laid out their strategy for going toe-to-toe with the streaming giant this year.
Lester Holt told @ajkatztv that NBC News has had “conversations” with the White House about a Trump interview on Super Bowl Sunday & he’d “welcome” the chance to speak with him. http://adweek.it/2mRcOua
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
