The stuff going on with the bidding war for parts of Fox is confusing to me, but I'm glad that ACS Versace is a bright spot.
21st Century Fox Falls Short Of Earnings Expectations, As Broadcast TV Revenue Plummets
May 9, 2018
UPDATED with details from the investor call: 21st Century Fox fell short of Wall Street’s earnings expectations for its third quarter, as broadcast television and film units reported declines from a year ago.

Fox’s cable business was a bright spot, with operating income of $1.68 billion for the quarter, up 16% from a year ago. FX network drama The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and the Donald Glover comedy Atlanta were two shows Murdoch identified as performing well.
“Our cable segment delivered its highest earnings ever in our fiscal third quarter, propelled by sustained double-digit gains in domestic affiliate revenues,” said Executive Chairmen Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch. “Creatively, we are firing on all cylinders. Our stand-out programming continues to drive up the value of our video brands to distributors, as well as build our direct relationship with consumers, as we’re demonstrating with the successful inaugural season of Indian Premiere League on STAR Sports and Hotstar platforms.”
Fox reported its results as news accounts suggest its film and television assets may be the object of a bidding war. The company’s board approved Disney’s $52.4 billion all-stock offer for significant parts of the compan, including its film and television studios, cable channels National Geographic and FX, and its regional sports networks.
Disney chairman Bob Iger expressed confidence that the deal would close in a call yesterday to discuss its financial results with investors. However, Comcast may scramble those plans. The cable operator is making preparations for a hostile bid for the Fox assets and has been lining up finances to make an all-cash offer, sources say.
Comcast is said to be awaiting the outcome of the Justice Department’s antitrust suit seeking to block the proposed merger of AT&T and Time Warner.
