Children’s TV channel The Hub replaces Discovery Kids NEW YORK — The Discovery Kids channel disappears this weekend and in its place will appear The Hub, a new television network backed by the toy maker Hasbro that is focusing on a 6-year-old to 11-year-old audience. The Hub debuts Sunday at 10 a.m., and will give viewers a sampling that day of some of the programming it will be rolling out over the next six months. “This is the last great opportunity to launch a great kids’ business,” said Margaret Loesch, the network’s CEO. The veteran television executive helped start up Fox’s children’s business. Discovery Kids is seen in about 60 million U.S. homes with cable and satellite, slightly more than half the homes with TV. Unhappy with the ratings, Discovery Communications accepted $300 mil- STARGazer lion from Hasbro Inc. last year to start over in a joint venture. It’s virtually impossible these days for any new network to start with that many homes unless it is taking the space of an old one. Hasbro will contribute “Transformers Prime” and “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic,” programs based on characters that are also Hasbro toys. Other shows include Jim Henson’s “Fraggle Rock,” “Meerkat Manor,” “Men in Black,” “Strawberry Shortcake Berry Bitty Adventures,” “The Twisted Whiskers Show” and “Batman Beyond.” Early testing showed enthusiasm for “Family Game Night,” a prime-time show designed to bring youngsters and their parents together to watch competition in games such as “Sorry” and “Operation.” Loesch said she believed popular children’s’ networks Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel are starting to offer more programming aimed at a teen and tween audience, leaving a chance to gain a foothold among younger viewers. “I think they’ll be successful,” said Derek Baine, a senior analyst at SNL Kagan, who focuses on cable network businesses. “They have a lot of money behind them and a lot of powerful brand names in Hasbro to leverage.” The Hub can’t pay as much in licensing fees to producers of children’s series, but will compete by allowing the creators to maintain ownership of their shows, Loesch said. That’s often a sticking point in deals with the larger children’s’ networks, she said. Baine said he saw that less as a strategy and more a cost-saving effort; Discovery has found that launching Oprah Winfrey’s new network was more expensive than originally planned. Hasbro’s involvement has raised concerns about exposing the young audience to too much commercialism. Loesch said it’s the same issue at Nick and Disney. “When you see what we’re doing, we will pass any smell test,” she said. Carrie Ann Inaba will host game show LOS ANGELES — Carrie Ann Inaba is adding a game show to her TV dance card. The “Dancing With the Stars” judge will host a new version of “1 vs. 100,” scheduled to debut next month on the GSN channel. “I never would have thought of myself as a game Inaba show host, but when I saw the show I fell in love with it,” Inaba said Thursday, the ﬁrst day of production. The show has gone high-tech with such elements as web cams, which Inaba said appeals to the “tech savvy” side of her. “1 vs. 100” pits one player against a group of 100 people tagged “the Mob.” The player’s task is to correctly answer a series of multiple-choice trivia question, while mob members do the same thing. At stake is a top prize of $50,000. “1 vs. 100,” which originally aired on NBC with host Bob Saget, is a change of pace for Inaba. The dancer-choreographer was a Fly Girl on “In Living Color,” toured with Madonna and hosts red-carpet coverage for ceremonies that have included the Golden Globes and Academy Awards. She’ll continue to work on ABC’s “Dancing With Stars” on Monday and Tuesday and then tape the game show on the other three weekdays. It’s an “incredibly intense” schedule but one she can manage by relaxing at home with her boyfriend and his daughter, and through yoga, Inaba said. “And I sleep a lot,” she added, laughing. Her new GSN game show will air at 7 p.m. weekdays starting Nov. 15, the channel said.
