Weekly Ratings: ‘Walking Dead,’ ‘Empire’ Separate From the Pack

4 March 2015 5:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last week was a busy one in primetime for premieres and finales — including the return of NBC’s “The Voice” and the exit of ABC’s hit rookie “How to Get Away With Murder” — but AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Fox’s “Empire” were the clear standout performers.

The veteran zombie drama and first-year Fox soap, both of which wrap their seasons this month, continued their growth spurts last week and opened up some distance on the rest of the primetime field in the adults 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen estimates for the Feb. 22-March 1 frame.

“Dead” looked like it was finally losing some steam when it opened the second half of its fifth season last month with slightly depressed numbers opposite the Grammy Awards and “SNL Anniversary” special. But it bounced back a week ago opposite the Oscars and then jumped nearly another 10% on Sunday (to 7.5 in 18- »

Best of Late Night TV: Ryan Reynolds Plays 'Egg Russian Roulette,' Cate Blanchett Finally Explains '#SuckIt' (Video)

2 March 2015 11:22 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Fallon had himself a busy Monday night on "The Tonight Show," playing games with Ryan Reynolds and Kelly Clarkson and talking to Terrence Howard about the "Empire" star's (hilarious, in hindsight) Oscars flub.

Jimmy referenced how Kelly said it's been hard for her to find people to do duets with, so Jimmy sang a medley of duets with her. Moving on to Ryan, Jimmy played "Egg Russian Roulette" with Mr. Reynolds. They had to smash eggs on the tops of their heads without knowing which ones were raw. In his sit-down interview, Ryan did a pretty great Aaron Neville impression and said he thinks his baby girl might be allergic to sleep, »

Secrets & Lies remake premieres in the Us

2 March 2015 1:32 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Some Us critics responded enthusiastically to the Us remake of Hoodlum.s Secrets & Lies but the bulk of viewers may need convincing. The 10-part thriller starring Ryan Phillippe, Juliette Lewis, KaDee Strickland, Aussie Indiana Evans and Belle Shouse premiered on the ABC network at 9 pm Sunday Us time. The two-hour show averaged a 1.5 rating/4 share of the key 18-49 demo, equating to 5.9 million viewers, finishing second behind the debut of post-apocalyptic comedy The Last Man on Earth on Fox. Us commentators rated the figures as unimpressive although they noted Secrets & Lies did far better than the January premieres of Resurrection (1.1) and Revenge (0.9) in the same timeslot. Also, encouragingly for the network and the producers, the thriller held its audience, averaging a 1.5 rating for each of the four half-hours. Variety reviewer Brian Lowry opined, .Better than Gracepoint and not as compelling as Broadchurch, ABC.s Secrets and Lies is a solid, »

Secrets and Lies: Season One Ratings

2 March 2015 12:31 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC has been promoting Secrets and Lies as a "10-episode drama". Presumably that means that the series won't be cancelled before the storyline concludes but anything can happen if the ratings are bad enough. If it's a hit, could there be a second season? We'll have to wait and see how things go.

On Secrets and Lies, a house painter and family man discovers a neighbor boy's dead body in the woods and he quickly goes from being a Good Samaritan to a murder suspect. The lives of everyone around him are turned upside down by the ensuing police investigation and media attention. Did he really do it? The series stars Ryan Phillippe, Juliette Lewis, KaDee Strickland, Natalie Martinez, Dan Fogler, Indiana Evans, and Belle Shouse.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the »

Ryan Phillippe Opens Up About His Depression

2 March 2015 10:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ryan Phillippe can connect with a quietly tortured character.

The Secrets and Lies star opened up to Elle about how battling depression has affected him and those around him.

"You know, depression has been a huge obstacle for me ever since I was a child. As you get older I think it decreases some, but I'm just innately kind of a sad person," he said. "I'm empathetic, and I take on the feelings of others and transpose myself into the position of others. I see it in my daughter."

Phillippe, 40, shares daughter Ava, 15, with actress Reese Witherspoon, and he told the mag that Ava too has depression.

Will Forte Talks MacGruber 2

2 March 2015 6:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When MacGruber hit the big screen in 2010, it barely made an impact. Not quite recouping its modest budget, the comedy quietly, but quickly faded – only to find a bigger audience later through streaming and DVD sales. Now that the co-writer and star, Will Forte, is enjoying positive reviews of his new Fox series The Last Man On Earth, the idea of MacGruber 2 is beginning to gain more traction.

MacGruber is essentially a Saturday Night Live movie, with it having been written by SNL scribes Forte, John Solomon and Jorma Taccone, and with it having been Taccone’s feature length directorial debut. Forte is the titular character, and MacGruber also starred SNL’s Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph, along with Ryan Phillipe, Val Kilmer and Powers Boothe. The plot saw diabolical villain Dieter Von Cunth (Kilmer) surface with a nuclear warhead and a plan to destroy Washington D.C – so former »

Series premiere talkback: 'Secrets and Lies'

1 March 2015 8:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Neither Dan nor I wound up writing a review of ABC's "Secrets and Lies." We did discuss it on this week's second podcast, though, and weren't impressed either by Juliette Lewis' unintentionally comical performance as the cop, or by the gimmick of telling the show from Ryan Phillippe's point of view, even though we won't find out whether he's actually the killer until the end of the series. (Maybe it played better in the Australian original, but here it feels like the kind of surprise-over-substance choice that plagues too many serialized mystery/suspense shows.) For those of you who watched tonight's two-hour premiere, what did you think? Are you intrigued by the mystery? Are you imagining Kate McKinnon's Juliette Lewis impression? And will you watch again? Have at it. »

Secrets and Lies: What's Your Verdict on ABC's New Murder Mystery?

1 March 2015 7:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Seemingly good-natured painter Ben Garner (MacGruber‘s Ryan Phillippe) claims he’s innocent in the death of his 5-year-old neighbor — but is he merely hiding his true intentions? Perhaps those of a cruel nature?

That’s what a trench coat-clad Juliette Lewis (Wayward Pines), as no-nonsense detective Andrea Cornell, is trying to figure out in ABC’s Secrets and Lies, which kicked off Sunday with a two-hour premiere.

Secrets & Lies Review – TV ABC

1 March 2015 7:05 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

ABC‘s Secrets & Lies gives away the main thrust of the story with the gimmick itself, leaving the ten-episode dramatic effort to keep viewers interested with… well, all the secrets and lies. The trick here being that some of them aren’t actually either.

Similar to such popular, recent efforts as Broadchurch (Gracepoint), this is another reworking of a foreign show. This one, like The Slap, an effort from Australia.

The show opens with Ben Crawford (Ryan Phillippe) sprinting out of the woods to get help after he finds the body of a small boy, Tom Murphy. Tom was not just his neighbor’s son, but a boy Ben knew well, as his daughter regularly babysat him.

As might be expected (from TV DramaLand), Detective Andrea Cornell (Juliette Lewis) asks Ben a lot of questions that don’t exactly sound routine, and more or less acts as though she has »

Brace yourselves moviegoers, another dose of MacGruber may be on its way. Almost five years after the popular Saturday Night Live skit was turned into a motion picture, Will Forte is giving fans hope that a sequel could be coming sooner rather than later.

Secrets And Lies Season 1 Review

28 February 2015 2:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based on the first two episodes of season one, which were provided to us for review purposes prior to broadcast.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: a child is found murdered in a remote area near a typically idyllic neighborhood, someone is wrongly accused as the murderer, and an incessantly overbearing detective will stop at nothing to solve the case. Oh, and it’s all based on a TV show of the same name from somewhere overseas. You stopped me at “a child is found murdered”? Sorry, didn’t hear you. The unfortunately trendy topic happening on TV right now – from The Killing to Broadchurch to (sigh) Gracepoint – continues on in ABC’s Secrets and Lies, a tragically titled television show that somehow manages to be slightly more than the sum of its lazily slapped together parts.

Unfortunately, the first big mistake the show »

Forte Says "MacGruber 2" Is A Priority

28 February 2015 7:06 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though a financial dud, the SNL-skit based comedy feature "MacGruber" starring Will Forte and Kristen Wiig has earned a cult following that anxiously awaits a sequel. A while back Forte says those involved want to do it, but it's a matter of timing more than anything now.

The actor, out doing promotional rounds for the new Fox comedy series "The Last Man on Earth" tells The Wrap:

"It seems like we have a realistic shot at getting it made. We have a loose outline of the first couple of acts, which we're really excited about. So we've just got to flesh it out a little more... If [The Last Man on Earth] were to ever be successful enough to get a second season, we'd probably have to wait until after that season to make it. If the show isn't successful enough to do that, we'd probably jump in right away.
