Like other recent awards telecasts, such as the Grammys and the Golden Globes, Sunday night's telecast of the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on TNT and TBS saw a ratings increase over last year. The telecast drew a total of 5.2 million viewers, 2.1 million of whom were in the 18-49 age group, a 5-percent boost over 2012. It was the best performance yet for the SAG Awards telecast. At the same time the two channels announced that they had signed a new deal to carry the awards ceremony for three more years.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
