That year, a then-record 422 scripted series aired on those outlets. But Peak TV still isn't close to peaking, according to new estimates from FX's research team that Landgraf...

    When Disney announced that it would be acquiring 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion, one of the biggest questions about the deal--which the company expects to close in 12-18 months--was how an edgy brand like FX would fare under its family-friend new owner.

    As of Thursday, patrons of Dunkin' Donuts could step into the shops and behold a small miracle--racks and racks of those dizzyingly colorful donuts, all of them chemical free. After much work, the donut chain finally gave the boot to artificial coloring (though some limited-edition donuts may still contain it). "Eliminating artificial dyes from our...

    Last year was supposed to be a big year for Twitter TV.

    Viewers of the Golden Globes Sunday night may have noticed a commercial from a company that isn't typically an advertiser: LinkedIn. And if viewers paid close attention to the spot, they may have also noticed that the actual LinkedIn user who was featured in the ad didn't fit the "white collar businesspeople" stereotype of the...

    There's something remarkably intimate about Facebook's new 60-second spot and the way it uses a combination of portraiture and voiceover to tell a story of hope.

    Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris is back in commercial directing mode for investment company Wealthsimple, turning the camera on Hollywood creators Aubrey Plaza, Alex Karpovsky, Brian Tyree Henry and Mark Duplass to capture them talking about their money smarts or, more to the point, their complete cluelessness on the topic.
