Networks Unleash New Marketing Tricks This Fall

When Sleepy Hollow went on a three-week hiatus due to MLB playoffs coverage, Fox promoted the show's video on-demand episodes instead. "Catch up from the beginning," promos suggested.

The networks' agreements with service providers typically allow for a "rolling five," which means the five most recent episodes are available via VOD. Coincidentally, five episodes of Sleepy Hollow had already run before the break, giving Fox one last chance to introduce viewers to the show's entire run (until the next batch of episodes began) via Fox.com, Hulu, Fox On Demand or its "Fox Now" app.

Cartoon Network's MAD Doubles the Funny for 100th Episode Celebration

MAD

To celebrate its 100th episode, MAD is getting "Super"-sized. The animated sketch-comedy series features a parody of the Superman blockbuster Man of Steel in Monday's double-sized show (Nov. 11 at 8:30/7:30c on Cartoon Network). Producer Kevin Shinick recruited Weird Al Yankovic and Henry Winkler to voice Superman and his father, Jor-El, respectively in the sketch, which takes a playful jab at the film's controversial violence.

The network gave Shinick 22-minutes to play with — twice the Emmy-nominated show's typical episode length — and he's stuffed it with a variety of pop-culture parodies and comedy bits. The featured musical sketch, "The Worst Show Ever," is inspired by a certain boy band. "It's One Direction's take on having to watch MAD," Shinick says, emphasizing his series' self-deprecating attitude. Yankovic will voice the band's manager.

Meet Saturday Night Live's New "Weekend Update" Anchor Cecily Strong

Cecily Strong

When Cecily Strong sat in Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" anchor chair for the first time this fall, she had only one goal in mind: Don't cry. "I'm a crybaby, so I express every emotion with tears," says the Springfield, Illinois, native. "But they would've been happy tears — I would've been bawling because I was so excited."

You can't blame her for being psyched. In only her second season on SNL, she's been promoted from lowly featured player to heir to the throne coanchor Seth Meyers will vacate when he leaves to host NBC's Late Night early next year. "Cecily's had a meteoric rise, as opposed to my molasses-like one," quips Meyers.
