Wednesday Ratings: Fox’s ‘Empire’ Rises for A Seventh Straight Week

8 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated: In updated national estimates from Nielsen, “Empire” was revised up to a 5.4 rating in 18-49 and 13.9 million viewers overall, gains of 42% and 40%, respectively from the show’s Jan. 7 premiere.

CBS’ “Survivor” edged up to a 2.4/7 in the demo and 10.04 million viewers overall, while ABC saw 0.1 declines for both “Black-ish” (2.2/6 in 18-49, 6.63 million viewers overall) and “Nashville” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.86 million).


It’s getting increasingly difficult to describe the ratings performance of Fox’s rookie soap “Empire,” which moved past the “megahit,” “phenom” and “unprecedented” stages weeks ago.

On Wednesday, “Empire” added nearly 1 million more viewers to approach the 14-million mark while growing yet again in the key young-adult demo of adults 18-49 (up a tick to a 5.3 rating/15 share), according to Nielsen national estimates. In 18-49, it bested the night’s former champ, ABC’s “Modern Family,” by more than 50%.

“Empire” has now grown seven consecutive weeks in total viewership since its Jan. »

Weekly Ratings: Oscars, ‘Tgit’ Dramas Lift ABC to Biggest Victory in 15 Years

25 February 2015 5:40 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tune-in for the Academy Awards may have been down — hitting a six-year low in total viewers — but that didn’t spell doom for the Alphabet. In fact, thanks to increased strength across its schedule, ABC dominated Oscar week by an even bigger margin than usual.

With the network winning on Monday, Thursday and Friday as well as Oscar Sunday, it was able to draw twice as many young adults as runners-up CBS and Fox during the course of the week. That made it the largest in-season margin of victory in 18-49 for ABC (100%) since January 2000, one of the network’s final turns airing the Super Bowl.

For the February sweep, ABC won all four Thursdays in 18-49 for the first time in eight years; took all four Fridays for the first time in 20 years; and won three of four Mondays, winning the night on average for the first time in six years. »

24 February 2015 12:13 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?... Goldberg.

The Goldbergs, the totally rad ABC comedy, is serving up some good ol' nostalgia when they pay homage to another iconic '80s film--Ferris Bueller's Day Off. ETonline was invited to the set of the special tribute episode.

Watch: 'The Goldbergs' Meets 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' First Look

"My sons, played by Troy Gentile and Sean Giambrone, are obsessed with the movie Ferris Beuller and they want to have their own day off," star Wendi McLendon-Covey told ETonline. "Well, how's that going to go? It is a movie."

In the episode, airing Wednesday, middle child Barry (Gentile) attempts to recreate the classic John Hughes film only to have it turn into a disaster. Joining in on the hijinks of the day is Pops (George Segal) and younger brother Adam (Giambrone) who only make the it worse.

Two and A Half-Men Ends Without Charlie Sheen

20 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Charlie Sheen did not see Two and a Half-Men end the way he wanted. In fact, it pretty much ended without the legit, former star of the show. Thus Chuck Lorre found himself having to explain why the tiger blood king did not end up on it even after both sides claimed they wanted t. As expected, it appears that Chuck could not agree with Charlie. Here is what he said about their disagreement on his supposed guest appearance.

Our idea was to have him walk up to the front door in the last scene, ring the doorbell, then turn, look directly into the camera and go off on a maniacal rant about the dangers of drug abuse, He would then explain that these dangers only applied to average people. That he was far from average. He was a ninja warrior from Mars. He was invincible. … And then we would drop a piano on him. »

Here's the Explanation Behind Two and Half Men's Bizarre Ending

20 February 2015 11:32 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In case you missed it, this week marked the series finale of Two and a Half Men, and while the stars were reminiscing about their time on the long-running CBS hit, the big question on everyone's mind was whether original star Charlie Sheen would come back. Well, spoiler alert: he did and he didn't. Charlie the character was revealed as actually being alive, despite being killed off on an earlier season, and when he finally comes back to reveal himself to Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Alan (Jon Cryer), we see a stand-in for Sheen approach the door - then get a piano dropped on him. As if that weren't a weird enough way to close out the show or address the controversy with Sheen, the final frame then shows series creator Chuck Lorre, who gives Sheen's famous catchphrase, "Winning," then has a piano dropped on him too. Watch that last »

News Nuggets: Why did Charlie Sheen skip out on the 'Two and a Half Men' series finale Thursday?

20 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Why was Charlie Sheen absent from the "Two and a Half Men" series finale Thursday night? The actor was fired from the CBS comedy four years ago after a drug-fueled tirade. Creator Chuck Lorre says, "I know a lot of you might be disappointed that you didn't get to see Charlie Sheen in tonight's finale. For the record, he was offered a role. Our idea was to have him walk up to the front door in the last scene, turn, look directly into the camera and go off on a maniacal rant about the dangers of drug abuse.

TV Ratings: 'Two and a Half Men' Finale Swells, 'Odd Couple' Starts Strong

Two and a Half Men signed off on a high note Thursday night, albeit shy of the ratings highs it hit in its heyday. With an average 3.1 rating among adults 18-49, the show was up by almost 50 percent from the week prior — and at its best showing in the key demo since May 2013. Total viewership also swelled, up 41 percent to 13.2 million — many of them likely tuning in to see if former star Charlie Sheen would return. Still, the Chuck Lorre comedy lacked the momentum that How I Met Your Mother had when

Angus T. Jones Returns on "Two and a Half Men" Finale -- See Him Now!

It's the end of a TV era! "Two and a Half Men" wrapped up its 12-season run on Thursday night with a series finale that revolved around the idea that Charlie Sheen's Charlie Harper was still alive ... but no, the actor never made a cameo. But another one of the original stars -- Angus T. Jones -- made an epic return, and, wow, did he look different. Sporting long hair and a scruffy beard, the young actor looked almost unrecognizable! It has been two years since the 21-year-old star left the hit show after playing the character Jake Harper for nearly 10 years.  The actor received a wave of backlash in November 2012 when he repeatedly trashed the show and called it "filth." Although he apologized for his rant, CBS decided to drop Jones as a series regular. This was the first time we've seen him reprise his role since his feud with the network, »
