The Ticker: ‘Outnumbered,’ Peacock, Graphics

By Chris Ariens 

  • FNC’s Bill Shine tells Lloyd Grove how “Outnumbered” came to be. Earlier this year, Roger Ailes suggested, “‘How about [a show] with four women versus one guy?’ Apparently it was an idea he’d had for a long time. So we talked about that, and at some point along the way, Roger said, ‘the guy would be outnumbered.’ And boom! That’s where the title came from.”

  • NBC News’s Peacock Productions is expanding its Los Angeles office where Melody Shafir, late of BBC Worldwide, joins as VP overseeing all U.S. development. Sharon Scott continues as president and GM of Peacock Productions based in New York.

  • CNBC has updated its graphics package today, switching to a full 16:9 letterbox presentation.  CNBC HD’s sidebar graphic has been  removed as a result. Below at the left is Friday morning. Below, right is this morning.
