I haven't had this happen before.

My image using Render View looks like this - > screenshot2015-10-23at4.06.53pm.png

And like this in the picture viewer and when rendered out -> screenshot2015-10-23at4.07.59pm.png

I've tried tweaking a thousand things and have no idea. Thanks for anything.

you need to put the hdr on the sky in the Luminance channel or it can't 'shine' to get reflected by the logo, and turn off the Color Correction and you get the same render in both places

Thanks. I read somewhere that with GI it doesn't matter where you put the HDRI but I guess I misread or something.

Why can't I render out with color correction?

With one light with no falloff you should be getting some reflection of the sky even though the sky object is so large but not as bright as it would be with hdri in the luminance
But your color Correction settings are for -75% saturation (driving everything to neutral gray) and 100% contrast so light areas are extra bright and dark is very dark, if you turn off the Color Correction (or Reset the settings in it) you do get a render that you are supposed to.
I can't tell you why the color correction is not the same in the editor render and the picture viewer but the editor render has features which make it quicker and you should never do all your renders in the editor then expect the picture viewer to be identical particularly with textures - it's often nearly identical but not always, so it's good to do picture viewer renders to check.
It can also be a lot quicker to do a render in the picture viewer then use the Filter in the Picture Viewer to get the look you want then you can Create Post Effect (at the bottom of the Filter dialog) and use that for your animation render
