After ending its buzzy first season with one of the most controversial finales in television history, then subsequently suffering through a shaky sophomore go-round marred by fan backlash, AMC’s The Killing is currently enjoying quite the creative and commercial comeback. Invigorated by the presence of the always-invaluable Peter Sarsgaard,not to mention the reliably superb chemistry between leads Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, Season 3 has not only managed to once again leave critics besotted, but more importantly, it has also won the show back many of its ardent fans.
Marketing sense: Ian Media clients can secure 30 seconds TV advertising spots during The Killing and other AMC shows nationally and locally.
It was just supposed to be another over-the-top, unabashedly low-budget special effects-laden disaster pic like the rest of the guilty-pleasures in SyFy Channel’s popular B Movie series. Sharknado starred former 90210 heartthrob, and Dancing With The Stars Vet, Ian Ziering, alongside perennial party girl and one time big-thing, Tara Reid, in a story about… well, a super-storm dropping hungry Great White Sharks on the innocent people of Los Angeles.
Ian Media says, this was a great time for cable TV advertising, nationally or for small, local businesses, making history with SyFy.
As was the case with SyFy’s other AFI-worthy action extravaganzas like 2010’s Sharktopus, starring Eric Roberts, and 2011’s Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, with Tiffani and Debbie Gibson, nobody expected the flick to excite anyone beyond the network’s core fanbase of tween boys, science fiction/fantasy aficionados, and college stoners. Yet out of the blue, Sharknado would explode onto the pop culture radar, generating, at the height of its Twitter-fueled initial airing on July 11th, more than 5000 tweets a minute.

We are always happy to praise success here at Ian media marketing. Here is one. Emmy-winner Eric McCormack is back on TV in Perception on TNT. He plays a brilliant, very eccentric neuroscientist who also is a consultant with the FBI on their toughest cases. Get this! The drama pulled in a solid 5.60 million viewers for its first episode. Yes, TNT is on fire, which means your big corporate or local advertising dollars should go there – you too small business owners in Los Angeles. You can advertise on TNT as well.
Mr. McCormack is currently busy on Broadway in Gore Vidal’s The Best Man, But this Daniel Pierce character he portrays on TNT is quite a change from his immensely popular Will Truman role, from the TV sitcom Will & Grace.
Even though Perception is a procedural in the classic mode, “procedure is the last thing that Daniel is going to follow. He’s probably going to screw procedure up, more than anything,” McCormack says. “He’s not there to look at forensics or have anything to do with guns, and he doesn’t bust anybody. He’s simply looking at it from the point of view of a puzzle and, inevitably, because of his expertise, that creates some great twists and turns in this show.”
