Rumor: Comedy Central consolidates media planning, buying with new firm?
Subject: broadcast, digital, print, out-of-home
Company: Comedy Central, part of MTV Networks & headquartered in NYC.
Opportunity: We’ve heard that Viacom has consolidated media buying and planning for Comedy Central (possibly Spike, as well) with Minneapolis-based Fallon. We haven’t been able to confirm this 100%, but have received a few tips and wanted to pass the information along. Your approach should center on strategies for engaging “comedy natives,” Comedy Central's term for Millennial guys, who make up about 70% of viewership.
Incumbent: Havas Media Group has handled media buying for Comedy Central since 2008, according to The List.
Marketing Priorities: Comedy Central no longer views itself a TV network. Instead, it wants to be known as a brand that is available everywhere at any time because comedy is the “new sheriff in town” when it comes to reaching millennial males, EVP Walter Levitt said during the Share.Like.Buy conference.
Target Audience: Comedy Central’s audience is 65-70%% male, with an average age of 30 and average income of $59,000/year.
Media Spend: Kantar Media reports Comedy Central's measured media spend at $1.4 million for 2013. Most of this was allocated to internet display ads – $729,000.
New Decision Makers: As we just reported Lu Chekowsky will become brand creative SVP in mid-Dec (research here).
