Network Television Still Sluggish

NEW YORK – The network market remained in its slump, with June widely available and 3rd QTR prime unable to get out of the blocks. The only daypart active in the 3rd QTR is daytime. P&G is said to have finished its daytime for the quarter, bucking up prices. But primetime is very quiet. The sports market is slow, but NBC’s NBA renewals are moving along. So far, Honda, Toyota and GM are said to have re-upped, and Nissan is said to have passed.
