James Murdoch, chairman and CEO, Europe and Asia, and heir apparent at his father’s News Corp., landed at No. 3 on Fortune’s “40 Under 40” list of “Business’s Hottest Rising Stars.”

Among the other TV names on the list are Hulu CEO Jason Kilar (No. 8), Univision Networks President Cesar Conde (13), Seth McFarlane, creator and executive producer of “Family Guy” (19), CNBC anchor Erin Burnett (33) and slipping in at No. 40, Ben Silverman, who this year was ousted as co-chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. Fortune wrote that Silverman, now working at Barry Diller’s IAC, was responsible for hits such as “Ugly Betty” and “The Office,” “so we made him our caboose.”
