Woke Superhero Network "The CW" Sold for... Zero Dollars


The ailing #WokeSuperheroes and teenagers-talking-in-hallways network The CW has been sold for zero dollars.

That's not a joke, the purchaser "bought" it for zero dollars. The catch is that the purchaser, Nexstar, will have to assume $100 million in The CW's debt.

This is another example of the new owner of AT&T/Warner Bros. attempting to shed some of the billions of dollars of the merged company's debt.

The stars, and I use that term advisedly, of "Batwoman"

Warner Bros. Discovery Inc. and Paramount Global, co-owners of The CW, are getting closer to agreeing on a deal to sell the controlling stake of the broadcast network to Nexstar Media Group. Should the deal go through, it would see the controlling stake of The CW change for the first time in fifteen years, since the network's launch.

According to the Wall Street Journal, should the deal move to completion, Nexstar will have 75% control of The CW, with the remaining 25% stake of the network split evenly between Paramount and Warner Bros. Discovery at 12.5% each. Nexstar is the biggest owner of local television stations in the US, and the deal for The CW stake will not be one where cash changes hands in the normal sense. This deal will see Nexstar cover the network’s debts, which have risen to $100 million.

You know the difference between The CW and CNN+?

Someone actually wanted to take over The CW and keep it alive.

Ethan Van Sciver has been specu-wishing forever that Discovery/AT&T or whatever the new company is called will sell off the DC comics part of the company. And he guesses that whoever buys it would, in turn, pretty much turn it into a licensing company, just licensing out character likenesses for T-shirts and coffee cups, and only occasionally putting out graphic novels to keep the notion of "comic books" alive.

Which would be, essentially, the death of the comic book industry, because you sell graphic novels in bookstores and on Amazon, and not in comic book shops.

I dunno. At this point, what is DC Comics actually worth? Is it worth it to actually sell it? The characters have so much recognition that they are, theoretically, worth several billions of dollars; but they just can't seem to make money with them, apart from a Batman movie every five years, and some cartoons.

Meanwhile, companies continue proving that "Wokeness" is a luxury product which can only exist during booming economies, like the one we had under Trump. Under miserable economies, like the one we have under Biden, they have to cut all their Woke projects.

Which is an introduction to this: Netflix just cancelled "Q Force," an "adult cartoon" about (what else?) gay superheroes, after just one season.

During Pride Month, Netflix?!

DURING PRIDE MONTH?!!

Another Netflix series has been called off after the first season. This time it's Q-Force, an adult animated series for the LGBTQ+ community.

Matt Rogers, who is among the writers and voice actors for Q-Force, during a podcast interview confirmed the streaming giant had not renewed the sitcom series after the first season. However, Rogers added that he was proud of the series, and it did pretty well at representation.

Something tells me that the show wasn't very good.

The thing that tells me that is that the thing he hangs his hat on wasn't quality or viewer appreciation, but "representation," which is an input, not an output.

"Well we tried really hard."

Oh, great. Nothing like watching effort.


...

The first season of Q-Force featured some renowned figures from Hollywood as the characters' voices in this animated show. These names include Will & Grace's Sean Hayes, Stranger Things' David Harbour, and Curb Your Enthusiasm's Wanda Sykes. The show also starred Matt Rogers, Gary Cole, Laurie Metcalf, Patti Harrison and Gabe Liedman.

Oooh, Wanda Sykes. That is representation. That is representing The Year 2006, when people pretended for one hot minute that she was "funny" and not just whiny and annoying.

Woke projects do not make money. They only lose money. They can only exist when the projects that can make money are actually making money. In down economies, even the projects that make money don't make much money, and we see how woke these woke corporations really are: Not all that woke.
