But we're not talking about news and sports, we're talking about scripted and appealing content in which I happened to talk about adult-animation and most people get their news from websites and sports on TV rather than on a streaming service dedicated to entertainment like Disney + and HBO Max. Peacock currently doesn't have that except the old shows people have seen a million times and wants new content. So stick to the topic. And trust me, you're downplaying the importance of adult-animation, which is still widely popular in the entertainment industry, in no part thanks to Netflix bringing in creators in serving new content that they won't get on broadcast and even cable TV.

You know what I think? NBCUniversal should start investing in adult-animated shows/movies because many other streaming services like Disney-owned Hulu, Netflix, and HBO Max are developing them too which would certainly grab the audiences by the tens of thousands. They need a few more appealing content than just live-action sitcoms like Brooklyn 99 and Superstore.
Which is what they already have in nonscripted programming already. Not everyone wants fictional programming. Look at the one of the most talked about shows on Disney+ is the Imagineering story. Also you keep going about how Peacock only has old shows when people have literally posted about the new shows they will have for the service in which you have dismissed consistently because its not suited for you. Guess what?

And also since you want to talk about Netflix and how popular animation is. Their top shows weren't even animated worldwide and oh yea one of them will be on this service (Dirty John).

LOL HUH? Superstore and Brooklyn 99 are very clearly scripted entertainment and it's known to everyone, the ones you're talking about are reality TV shows and sports wrestling, which FOX is trying to gun for after losing its sister company 20th Century Fox to Disney.

Trying to say adult-animation isn't popular worldwide doesn't eliminate the fact they are very popular and appealing in nature. Adult-Animation still has its market to and Netflix clearly allows content that you would not see on broadcast and cable TV and gave creators their freedom. Americans still have the appetite for adult-animation, and that's why Disney-owned Hulu and HBO Max are developing them so people with general audiences can watch them. Otherwise, Comcast wouldn't even think about trying to make its service free with ad-support at the very beginning of November 2019, since you ain't going to survive based on old shows and reality TV and sports alone.

This seems to point back again to boundary pushing creatives not wanting to play by Disney’s rules.

All other issues aside, Seth MacFarlane is now the second high profile creator to take a lucrative offer to leave Fox TV since the Disney purchase (Ryan Murphy going to Netflix being the other).

Yeah, Seth was already told by Fox/Disney to curb gay jokes in Family Guy and he didn't want to deal with the hassle under the new parent company. I believe that was the final straw for him that he signed up with NBCUniversal Television instead. After all, he directed several movie features for Universal Studios before, so no doubt he linked up with NBCUniversal as a connection.

Paul Feig and Seth McFarlane both left Fox, as did DeVon Franklin for Paramount. It feels like Fox is remaking itself before our eyes, and NBCU might end up being one of the primary beneficiaries.

NBC programming likely to leave Hulu for Peacock once Comcast is no longer an owner

Telegdy opened his remarks Saturday by stressing the larger reach of NBC, noting that The Office is a hit on Netflix (before it moves to his company's streamer, Peacock), Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of Hulu's top programs and SNL is TV's No. 1 comedy for the first time in its 45-season history. As for the forthcoming streamer, Peacock, that launches in April with more details to come Thursday during NBCUniversal's investor day. "We’ve been working in partnership with them," he said, calling the service the "future of our digital distribution for a lot of what we do here." That would imply that the network and its studios' programming would no longer be sold to outside streamers but instead reserved for Peacock, where it will remain part of the corporate ecosystem. Telegdy, like ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke, reiterated his belief in the power of broadcast. "At NBC, our vision is clear," he said. "We are the mainstream."

Sorry if this is dumb question, but is Harry Potter streaming anywhere? That’s how Peacock makes it mark now past of what they have. Would be huge draw

I mean, we already expected this.

Why would Potter end up on Peacock? It’s a WB movie - a rival studio of Universal.

Potter will end up on HBOMax
