The future of TV is here. It’s just not evenly distributed. If it doesn’t seem like the American television industry is in the middle of a dramatic transformation, that’s simply because the pieces are scattered all over the place. But they are starting to come together…
Here’s an interesting read by Quartz’s Zachary M. Seward about the future of TV and how major providers in the US are moving to a broadband-based model. Will the future of TV no longer require owning a TV?
Over at HitFix, IBT fav Alan Sepinwall takes a look at Cosmos, FOX’s new science show starring the one-and-only Neil DeGrasse Tyson (and is attached to Seth MacFarlane!). Go give it a read!
Conan will be hosting this year’s MTV Movie Awards! « MuchMusic.com | Blog
Fun news: Conan O’Brian’s going to host the MTV Movie awards this year! I couldn’t remember who hosted last year’s (or any year, really), but apparently it was Rebel Wilson. And Conan’s hosted a couple of times in the past, too.
Anyway, the MTV Movie Awards will air April 13 on MTV Canada.

Everyone’s all abuzz over Ford on Kimmel last night, so I’ve taken the liberty of collecting recaps from different angles!
Canadian TV Critic (and IBT fav) Bill Brioux says it wasn’t a fair fight, with Kimmel completely dominating an unsuspecting Ford:
“The much-anticipated meeting of Rob Ford and Jimmy Kimmel had all the build-up of Ali-Frazer III. It wound up more The Thrilla in Vanilla.”
Over at BlogTO, Chris Bateman is less charitable, calling the interview cringeworthy. Some amazing comments there from Ford Nation, too, including one guy who thinks Ford won the interview, whatever that means.
Meanwhile, over at Uproxx/Warming Glow, Ryan Perry breaks the interview down, segment by segment. Not in great detail, mind you, but he offers clips of the interview.
Over at Toronto alt-weekly The Grid, Nicholas Hune-Brown has an on-the-ground look at the interview. it’s an interesting read from someone who both knows Toronto politics and was there at the taping.
Finally, Torontoist ran a quote from Toronto Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, a lone breath of sanity in an increasingly surreal circus.
