a possible sale of Sony's film and TV business again.
A while back the paper said that CBS could be eyeing (sorry) the assets, which of course include Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and a controlling interest in GSN. In a weird way this makes sense, because of all the broadcasters CBS has been most immune to the disease of 18-49 obsession. The network doesn't mind skewing at least a little older, which has turned out to be a smart strategy in a rapidly aging country. And Sony's game show properties share the genre's usual old skew.
CBS may also figure that they could turn around Sony's film unit, which has dwindled to a single-digit share of the movie business. Several Chinese companies might be interested, too. But a sale to anybody doesn't look imminent, according to the Post. Sony wants to see how its summer movies perform, especially the emoji picture. For now Pat and Vanna and Alex and our little game show network don't seem to be going anywhere.
