Charles Dance Might Be Back on Game of Thrones

19 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Though he was last seen suffering the most humiliating death in Game of Thrones history, Charles Dance hints that he might not be gone for good. While promoting Dracula Untold, Dance told MTV, "I'm not completely missing out on the next series. You haven't seen the last of Tywin Lannister." This is big news not just because it means we get more Charles Dance (every show needs more Charles Dance!), but also because it adds more weight to rumors that GoT is abandoning its no-flashbacks policy, which has frustrated fans hoping for more of that good fantasy lore. Or it could just be his corpse. But if we're getting flashbacks, could Sean Bean achieve his own dream of returning to the show?Also, if you're wondering what young Charles Dance might look like, here you go. »

19 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

TNT has had some mixed success launching new dramas this summer. The Last Ship has been a ratings success while Murder in the First just did okay. How will Legends do? Will it be a hit and be renewed for a second season, or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

Based on the award-winning book by spy novelist Robert Littell, Legends follows Martin Odum (Sean Bean), an undercover agent who can transform himself into a different person for each case. A mysterious stranger causes him to start questioning his sanity. Others in the cast are Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut, Amber Valletta, Mason Cook, Tina Majorino, Rob Mayes, and Steve Harris.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings »

Review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'The Good Listener'

14 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" coming up just as soon as I rob Peter to pay Paul... "Year in, year out: different dogs, same bone." -Nucky By shifting the final season into 1931, Terence Winter and company have brought us into a year where Al Capone isn't just a mob boss, but a celebrity, and when Lansky, Luciano and Siegel are making moves that will turn them into organized crime legends in their own right. The series could conceivably do a major pivot at the end and do a serialized version of "The Untouchables," with Stephen Graham and Jim True-Frost (Prez!) standing in for De Niro(*) and Costner, and/or focus heavily on the schemes of the not-so-young triumvirate of New York wiseguys. But the show has always been about Nucky's story, right or wrong, and "The Good Listener" plays interestingly off of the ways that this show's main character »

The Bottom Shelf: Remo, Almost Human, Branded To Kill and more

9 September 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick wades into another stack of DVD releases, including 80s action epic Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous, and lots more besides...

"Whatever happened to Fred Ward?" is a line surely on the tip of most people’s tongues. Apparently, the star of Tremors and The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult has mostly been doing TV work over the last few years, though you’ll almost certainly remember him as the charismatic star of 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. No? Well, shame on you, because Remo, making a welcome Blu-Ray debut, leads this month’s action-packed, erm, action special.

If you weren’t one of the lucky few that grew up with the preposterous movie otherwise known as Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous punctuating their childhood, we’ll fill you in. Riding on the success of the Rambo films (essentially, the only tenuous link being the vaguely similar name), Bond director »

ThreeZero Game of Thrones Ned Stark Figure is Revealed

3 September 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The ThreeZero Game of Thrones one-sixth scale premium action figure line will be adding its second character and first from House Stark. It was already known this officially licensed figure was in the works for many months due to behind-the-scenes images, but now the ThreeZero Game of Thrones Ned Stark figure based on the likeness of Sean Bean from the hit HBO series is officially a go.

ThreeZero has revealed the first image of the Game of Thrones Ned Stark figure prototype that shows the former head of House Stark in his most iconic look. Starting from the head down, the sculpt does a respectable job of capturing Bean's likeness in the role, but the paint job could use some work -- especially around the eyes.  The head is still being worked on so the final figure should theoretically be improved.

From the looks of the image, Ned comes with his animal overcoat, »

Univision Wins Second Straight Week Among Young Adults

20 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC again edged ahead of its Big Four rivals in adults 18-49 last week, but Univision has made it two straight frames as the top-rated network overall in the key demo.

With its year-round slate of firstrun telenovelas, the Spanish-language Univision typically stacks up better relative to the major networks in the summer than during the traditional TV season. It won a couple of times last summer too.

The network is especially dominant among the younger 18-34 segment of the prime 18-49 demo, and has now won four consecutive weeks in this age group.

Discovery, meanwhile, led cable in key demos with its Shark Week — setting ratings records for the event in women 18-49, women 25-54 and adults 25-54. It also stood as the No. 1 network on all of television in men 18-49.

Overall, according to “live plus same-day” Nielsen estimates for the week of Aug. 11-17, Univision finished on »

‘Legends’ Opens to Ok Numbers for TNT On Wednesday

14 August 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TNT’s new series “Legends,” developed by “24” and “Homeland” producer Howard Gordon, opened to average numbers on Wednesday — though it should generate above-average VOD tune-in.

According to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates, “Legends” averaged a 0.52 rating in adults 18-49 (658,000 viewers in the demo) and 2.6 million viewers for its 9 p.m. telecast, and an 11 p.m. encore attracted about 1 million more total viewers.

TNT made the first episode available to subscribers through TV and broadband VOD for a week leading up to the premiere, so its overall numbers should spike.

The “live plus same-day” demo rating for “Legends” (0.52) puts it in about the middle of the pack for this summer’s cable drama premieres — below TNT’s two prior bows (a 1.18 for “The Last Ship” and a 0.64 for “Murder in the First”) but ahead of USA’s “Satisfaction” (0.49) and “Rush” (0.39) and others including Lifetime’s “The Lottery” (0.41) and AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire »
