Since we're in the midst of holiday card season, I wanted to send out a quick PSA: if someone sends you a card with glitter all over it (predictably coating your floor with the intractable substance) they are not your friend; they're an enemy.

“The winner of this war isn’t going to be the one that spends the most money. It’s going to be the one who makes the biggest mass commercial hits… Consumers are always about following the biggest hits and going with the most buzz. Regardless of where the environment is in the economy, content is key to consumers and big hits break out from the pack… Our business has always been rooted in the mass commercial business, whether that’s in cable or broadcast with CBS. Across the last 20 years, no one has been No. 1 in more demos and more genres than CBS or MTV Entertainment Studios. That’s why we’re having that big success in the streaming world.”
