Netflix is the #1 Choice for TV Viewing, Beating Cable & Others

  • In a survey of 2,500 adults conducted by Wall Street firm Cowen & Co, Netflix is the #1 choice for TV viewing.

  • 27% of TV viewers watch most often via Netflix, while 20% use cable TV, 18% use broadcast TV, and 11% watch via YouTube.

  • When looking at the subset of respondents 18-34, this is even more pronounced, with 40% using primarily Netflix, 17% using YouTube, 13% using basic cable, and 7.6% using Hulu.

  • Excluding those who were cord-cutters and cord nevers, Netflix was still a close second (24%) to basic cable (26%).

  • Cowen & Co feels like this bodes well for Netflix's future, especially considering all of the original programming, much of it high quality, that they have added and continue to add.

More 'Little Women' Intel; Streep's Role, Filming Dates

  • Last week, it was announced that Greta Gerwig would direct a remake of Little Women, which was discussed in this ONTD post

  • It was fairly obvious who the younger actors announced would be playing from the jump: Saiorse Ronan as Jo, Emma Stone as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy and Timothée Chalamet as Laurie, with Beth's casting TBD.

  • The LA Times spoke with Robin Swicord, the screenwriter for the 1994 adaptation and a producer for this one, and she had some additional info.

  • Contrary to previous assumptions, Meryl Streep won't be playing the matriach of the March family, Marmie. Instead she'll be playing their wealthy and hard to please aunt, Josephine March.

  • Aunt Josephine will be a bigger part in Gerwig's adaptation than it has been in previous iterations, as Gerwig's screenplay will focus more on the time after the sisters leave the family home.

  • The screenplay will cut backward and forward in time, centering on the theme of young women entering the adult world rather than being a straightforward narrative adaptation.

  • Filming is set to begin October 1st in Boston, with the film aiming for a fall 2019 release date.

Oprah Winfrey Explains Why She Won’t Run for President in 2020: ‘It Would Kill Me’

-After her rousing speech at the 2018 Golden Globes, many people were speculating if she was going to run for office in 2020.
-“In that political structure ― all the non-truths, the bulls–t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on ― I feel like I could not exist." “I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.”
-Saw the response from her speech & she considered looking at the question.
Oprah on her approach to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements:
-“People talk about ‘these are such dark times,’ but what if we shift the paradigm? Because I see it differently,” Winfrey said. “I see, ‘Isn’t this remarkable that we’re waking up?’ For years, women have endured craziness. This is what’s happening to people. They’re allowing themselves to not just become corroded, but to become hysterical. You’ve got to lean to the happiness.”
-In the article, talks about her continued support for the me-too & Time’s Up movements against sexual abuse, harassment & exploitation.
